Liposuction is the procedure of removing fat tissue from different parts of the body such as waist, abdomen, legs, hip, back, arms or neck. The aim of liposuction is never to lose weight. It aims to achieve the desired aesthetic appearance by removing deformities due to fat in certain areas.
How Liposuction Works?
Liposuction is a procedure performed under general anesthesia in the operating room. A special liquid is injected to the fatty area to be removed from the body. The fat removed from the area by means of special cannulas is discharged out of the body. This process is carried out with mechanical hand movements. However, there are medical devices that work with different power systems for easy removal of fat.
The patient will remain in the hospital for one day after the surgery. The patient is dressed in a corset after exiting the operating room. There will be some swelling in the areas where fat is removed. Regional pain may also be experienced. These usually subside within 48 hours. Massage is applied to the body to relieve edema. The corset will be removed 2 months after the surgery.
When Is Liposuction Needed?
Liposuction is a type of surgery performed for local areas of the body where the patient cannot achieve the results he/she wants despite diet and exercise.
Liposuction can be used effectively as an adjunct to various cosmetic surgeries. The amount of fat removed may vary according to the targeted shape in that part of the body. It doesn’t matter if you remove more or less fat. The aim is to achieve an aesthetic appearance.
In terms of completion of growth, 18 years of age is accepted as the lower limit for both men and women.
The procedure to be performed does not have any negative effects on the pregnancy.
