How is Liposuction Performed?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that aims to remove excess fat tissue from the body. The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia or sedation for patient comfort and pain control. First, fluid is injected into the areas to be treated. This injection liquefies and swells the fat tissue, allowing the fat cells to be easily removed. Then, the fat cells are sucked out using a thin cannulated device. Liposuction can be used to correct body contours, reduce unwanted fat deposits or for aesthetic purposes. The recovery process after the procedure is important and the doctor’s recommendations should be followed.

Who Can Liposuction Be Performed?
As with any surgical operation, this procedure requires a specialist doctor’s opinion. Liposuction is not a slimming method, it is only a method that provides regional thinning and more smooth body contours. If you have a weight problem other than regional resistant fat deposits, it would be more appropriate to first get rid of your excess weight by applying a controlled diet and sports program, and then apply this method for excess fat that does not go away with diet.

Liposuction is a method that can be applied to anyone who does not have a systemic health problem, is not pregnant or has recently given birth. However, before indicating the application to people with systemic health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, etc., a number of tests should be performed to determine the risk factors and necessary precautions should be taken against dangerous situations.

Although age does not constitute an obstacle to this application, it cannot be applied to some elderly patients due to age-related loss of skin elasticity.

What is the Recovery Period After Liposuction?
After the operation, specially produced corsets must be used. These corsets are used for approximately 4 to 8 weeks depending on the amount of fat tissue removed and the characteristics of the person. Edema and bruises are expected and this situation will disappear over time. One week after the procedure, the stitches are removed and after one to three weeks, the patient can return to work and daily life if there is no problem in the general condition of the patient. Normal exercises can be resumed 3-4 weeks after the procedure.

Is Liposuction Performed for Sagging?
It should not be forgotten that having this application does not mean that you will not gain weight again. In order not to gain weight again, it is very important to give importance to lifestyle, diet and exercise after the operation. If there is frequent weight gain and loss, it will not be possible for the application to be successful.

If there is sagging skin in addition to regional fat excesses, the existing sagging cannot be recovered with this method. Abdominal wall sagging seen in women who give birth cannot be removed with liposuction application. In addition, this application does not get rid of cellulite.
