Fats may accumulate in certain parts of the body depending on genetic structure. Although the person is not overweight, there may be more fat stored in the lower body than in the upper body, or even though he is very thin, fat may be seen in the neck area. In addition, despite all the sports activities and diets, he can find regional fat that he cannot get rid of. At this point, liposuction can offer a solution. Liposuction is generally known as a weight loss method; however it is not. It is used to correct the deformities caused by the fat collected in the body. For patients who decide to get rid of fat, natural methods can be tried first and this surgery may be preferred if no results are obtained.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction; It is a surgical procedure that allows the fat accumulated in certain areas of the body just under the skin to be broken down and removed from the body using the vacuuming method. It is a shaping surgery aiming to reduce excess fat in the body.
For Which Parts of the Body Can Be Applied?
There is no specific age limit for liposuction. It can be applied to anyone who does not have an obesity problem and has a normal weight, but has excess fat in some parts of their body. Patients undergoing liposuction should be physically healthy. In addition, it cannot be applied to some elderly patients who have lost their skin elasticity due to age. It is known as the fat removal application and it is one of the most applied operations from past to present. It can be applied to the hips, hips, abdomen, waist areas where there is a lot of regional fat in the body, but it can also be applied to the face, arms and legs, legs, under the chin.
How is Liposuction Surgery Performed?
Liposuction surgery is performed with general or local anesthesia. In the area where the operation will be performed, the places with excess are marked. Then the area is anesthetized and after a waiting period of 10-15 minutes, the fat in that area are broken up with the help of a 1 mm cannula inserted into 4-5 mm incisions. This method allows for a younger and firmer skin appearance, as it reduces the fat in the skin and increases collagen at the same time.
What Should Be Considered After The Operation?
There is no need for any special preparation before liposuction application. The patient’s feeling ready is the most important factor. In addition, sharing the information of whether the patient has chronic diseases such as heart, blood pressure and diabetes will make it easier to take the necessary precautions. Thinking of this operation as a solution to the problem of obesity and being caught up in the fact that it will provide a completely thinning in the body will cause disappointment. Smoking and alcohol use before the application should be quitted for a certain period of time in order not to reduce the effect of anesthesia. In addition, it is also important to investigate the hygiene conditions of the center where the operation will be performed well, not to have any psychologically negative factors, and not to experience psychologically negative situations.
After liposuction surgery, if the instructions of the doctors are followed properly, a very smooth period is passed. For those who have liposuction, there is no guarantee that they will not gain weight again. If you wont give importance to your exercise and continue your bad eating habbits, and if there is an increase in the volume of fat, second operation may be required. It is very important to do sports, diet and lifestyle arrangements in order not to gain weight after the operation. Bleeding and edema are prevented by wearing a corset after the operation and the skin is shaped according to the new form. In addition, heavy movement should be avoided for two weeks. Normal living standards can be returned within three to four weeks.
As is known, there are different factors affecting pricing in many surgical procedures. These differences are also valid for liposuction prices.
