Liposuction Procedure

How is Liposuction Procedure Performed?

Let’s look at how fat cells are formed before the lipocution procedure. The number of fat cells in adults is constant. After puberty, the number of fat cells does not increase. Each individual’s fat cell storage is different. For this reason, the area that gains weight differs from person to person. The highest fat cell store of our body is in the abdomen and waist region. During weight gain and loss, the number of fat cells does not change, but they swell in volume. This results in weight gain.

Liposuction is the operation of removing fat deposits in certain parts of the body from the body with a special cannula and vacuum method. Liposuction is not a weight loss method. It is a contour correction surgery. In general, if you want to get rid of excess weight, you need proper nutrition, sports and a regular lifestyle. However, these do not change your oil distribution. Certain areas of the body such as the abdomen, waist, hips, outer and inner thighs, and knees are areas of fat accumulation that are resistant to diet and exercise.

If your face becomes very weak and looks bad when you lose weight to get rid of the fat in your hip or belly area, liposuction is a very successful surgery for shaping your body while you are at the ideal weight for your face.

With liposuction, excess stubborn fat in the deep layers is removed, but also the fat accumulations that cause contour irregularity can be removed with the method called superficial liposuction or liposculpture, which has been developed in the last 10 years. Liposculpture technique has also become a method that gives definite results in removing skin sagging and eliminating stubborn cellulite.

The operation is performed in the operating room under hospital conditions and under the supervision of an anesthesiologist. Liposuction takes between 1-5 hours depending on the condition of the regions. Depending on the extent of the surgery, it is possible to leave the hospital on the same day or after 24 hours. Post-surgery is usually comfortable. The pain is very minor and can be relieved with medication.

At the end of the surgery, a special corset is applied to the vacuum applied areas. The patient continues to wear the corset for 5-6 weeks. Liposuction is a plastic surgery. It is absolutely necessary to apply to Plastic and Aesthetic Surgeons.

Today; It has become possible to vacuum the fat deposits in many areas of the body such as under the chin, cheeks, neck, upper inner side of the arm, breasts, chest, abdomen, waist hip, thigh, inner side of the knee, back of the leg. It is also used as a complementary procedure in other body contour correction surgeries (such as tummy tuck, breast reduction).


Does fat form again in the areas where fat is removed?

A fixed number of human innate fat cells are born. When we gain weight, the number of fat cells does not increase, but the cell structures grow. For example, in human liposuction surgery, which is born with 1000 fat cells in the hip area, approximately 700-800 of these cells are vacuumed. Even if you gain weight, the remaining 200 cells cannot grow at the same level, so there is no question of weight gain from the operated areas.

Is liposuction a weakening factor in overweight people?

No way. These surgeries are performed to shape the contours of the body. For example, it is not possible for a 70 kg woman to come out of this surgery as 60 kg.

How much oil is taken?

8000 cc oil can be taken. This varies from person to person and depending on the number of the treated area. There is no rule that this amount of fat will be taken from every patient.

Will there be a scar from the surgery?

It is possible to perform liposuction surgery with small scars of half a cm from the concealable parts of the body. Over time, these little traces become very vague.

Can fat be removed from any desired area?

It can be taken from any part of the body, including the face, jowl, arm, wrist, where fat can be stored.

How long is a corset worn after surgery? What to do next?

A printed bandage or corset is worn for 3-4 weeks.

What is the risk of fat cells blocking the vessels (embolism)?

This risk is much less than the incidence in gynecology and orthopedic surgeries. With the development of liquid support treatments during and after liposuction surgery in recent years, we do not encounter this risk of complications. However, if the operation is used as a weight loss method and 10-15 liters of fat is removed, the risk increases, which is an extremely faulty method and should not be done.

When do we start to see the results of this surgery?

In the early period, the results are seen in the 3rd week of the operation, that is, immediately after the corset is removed. Up to the 6th month, the recovery will continue in a positive direction.

Which type of anesthesia is used in the surgery?

The choice of anesthesia is usually closely related to the excess and prevalence of the fat ratio in the patient, as well as the patient’s own choice. If the patient wishes and the areas of lubrication are low, it can be performed with local anesthesia.

How can fluctuations and irregularities seen after surgery be prevented?
First of all, this situation is very closely related to the experience of the surgeon performing the surgery. Secondly, it is possible to prevent these complications by choosing the cannulas used in the surgery. We are particularly
