Liposuction is a process in which the fat tissues stored in specific areas under the skin are removed by a vacuum assisted thin cannulae.
The fat all around the body at different rates; There are different features and tasks according to where you are. For example, the fat tissue that surrounds the skin and surrounds the whole body and the fat tissue that surrounds important organs such as eyes, intestines, vasculature and nerves are not the same. They are affected at different rates, and sometimes they are not affected.
The targeted fat graft taken during liposuction is mostly in the abdominal anterior-side, the hips around the thighs, inner-outer thighs, and the fat tissues in the arms and legs. Stored fat tissues are least affected fat tissues by weight loss in general, and are areas where women tend to gain more weight during pregnancy.
Liposuction surgery is not recommended for obese patients with the high ratio in the intraabdominal fat unless they lose weight (ie, without reducing intra-abdominal fat). Even if you take a lot of fat from under the skin in these patients, because the fat in the abdomen can not be taken, the result expected from liposuction can not be obtained.
With this attempt, the fat is removed from the excess fat-stored parts of the body and is shaped into a more proportionate and beautiful silhouette. This procedure is most commonly applied to areas such as abdomen, bases, legs, knees, waist, back, arms and lower jaw.
Liposuction surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia. The time varies depending on the areas where liposuction us performed. You will stay at the hospital for 1 day. Recovery time is 3-5 days. However, the body shape will appear after the 3rd month because the fat continues to dissolve until 6 months after surgey. In the post-operative period, elastic corsets are worn on the areas where surgery is performed. This helps the skin to adapt to its new position more smoothly. It is recommended that these corsets are worn for 3-6 weeks on average.
