LIPOSUCTION (VACUUM FAT REMOVAL)
Fat deposition in undesirable areas distorts the ideal body shape and lowers the self-confidence of the individual, causing discomfort in social and psychological terms. Regional fat deposition is often structural. Although it improves with sports and exercise to some extent, sometimes it is not enough to achieve the ideal body size.
What is liposuction?
In liposuction surgery, subcutaneous fat tissue is broken down and vacuumed with negative pressure using 3-5mm thick cannulas. Liposuction is the most important step of body contouring surgeries. It can be used alone or combined with other body contouring surgeries.
Losing weight with liposuction!
The major mistake in society is that liposuction surgery is performed for weight loss. Liposuction is not a weight-loss surgery. The fat tissue accumulated in the undesired parts of the body is corrected to give the individual a aesthetically more beautiful appearance.
How is the surgery performed?
The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. The operative time varies depending on the treatment area and extent. The patient is discharged the next day. It is recommended that the amount of fat taken at once not exceed 4-5 liters.
Will there be pain after the surgery?
There may be pain in the form of burning after the surgery. Pain is minimized by painkillers. There may also be bruising and tenderness in the surgical site, which usually resolves within two weeks. It is recommended to use corset for one month after the surgery. By means of this corset, it is aimed to prevent the accumulation of fluid and development of edema in the surgical site. After the operation, it is necessary to wait 6 months to achieve the desired ideal appearance. Daily activities can be started a week later. It is necessary to wait one month for light sports and three months for heavy sports. The patient can take a bath on the fourth day after the surgery. The length of the surgical scars range from approximately 5mm to 1cm. These scars are hardly recognizable by others.
Routine follow-ups are planned as the first week, second week, first month, third month and the first year.
