Liposuction is a surgery that removes fat from the body by absorbing fat deposits in certain parts of the body with a special vacuum or special injectors. It is definitely not a weight loss surgery, but a body contour correction surgery. With this surgery, while the fat tissue that is increased in volume and resistant to diet and exercise is removed from the body, the number of existing fat cells is also reduced.
It can be done in a semi-conscious manner known as general anesthesia or sedation. In order to minimize bleeding and reduce risks, fluid is given to the area to be performed, called Tumesent liposuction, and excess fat tissue is aspirated by applying vacuum with the help of special cannulas. Up to 10% of the body weight of adipose tissue can be aspirated at a single time.
In selected patients, laser liposuction, in which laser caps are used, and methods that provide tension in the skin tissue, where healing is faster, are used in more limited areas.
It can be done under general anesthesia or sedation. You may need to stay in the hospital for 1 night with protective covers and a corset, as fluid will leak from the post-operative areas. You can return to your normal life after 1 day. You should use a corset for 4-6 weeks. During this period, the swelling in the liposuction area will gradually decrease. There may be bruises that will last for a few days.
