In people who do not have weight problems such as obesity but have lubrication that cannot be eliminated by regional slimming methods, the surgical methods applied to remove the excess fat tissue and give the body a better shape are called Liposuction. Liposuction, which is generally described as fat removal among the people, is one of the most applied aesthetic operations from the past years to the present.
This application is especially applied to areas where stubborn lubrication and regional excesses are seen, such as hips, hips, abdomen, waist, knees.
Liposuction is generally applied by vacuuming and removing the fat tissues, which are made more fluid by various methods, through 1-2 mm incisions, using thin and long cannulas with a diameter of 2-3 mm.
Who can liposuction be applied to?
As in any surgical operation, a specialist doctor s opinion is required in this procedure. Liposuction application is not a slimming method, it is only a method that provides regional thinning and body lines to become smoother. If you have a weight problem other than regional resistant lubrication, it would be more appropriate to first get rid of your excess weight by applying a controlled diet and sports program, and then apply this method for excess fat that does not go away with diet.
Liposuction is a method that can be applied to anyone who does not have a systemic health problem, is pregnant or has not given birth recently. But heart disease, diabetes, etc. Before giving an indication for application to people with systemic health problems, risk factors should be determined by applying a number of tests and necessary precautions should be taken against dangerous situations.
Although age is not an obstacle to this application, it cannot be applied to some elderly patients due to age-related loss of skin elasticity.
In which situations does liposuction not work?
It should not be forgotten that having this application does not mean that you will not gain weight again. In order not to gain weight again, it is very important to give importance to lifestyle, diet and exercise after the operation. If there is frequent weight gain and loss, the application will not be very successful.
If there are skin sagging in addition to regional excess fat, the existing sagging cannot be recovered with this method. Abdominal wall sagging seen in women who have given birth cannot be removed by liposuction. In addition, this application does not provide to get rid of cellulite.
What is the recovery period after liposuction?
After the operation, specially produced corsets should be used. These corsets are used for approximately 4 to 8 weeks, depending on the amount of adipose tissue taken and the characteristics of the person. Edema and bruises are expected to be seen and this situation disappears over time. One week after the procedure, the sutures are removed, and after one to three weeks, if there is no problem in the general condition of the patient, he can return to work and daily life. It is possible to return to normal exercises 3-4 weeks after the application.
What is laser lipolysis and what are the differences with liposuction?
Laser lipolysis is a method of directly bursting the membranes of fat cells with the application of diode laser. Just like in liposuction methods, this method, which allows to get rid of regional excess fat, is also used effectively to remove this looseness, especially in areas where skin laxity can be seen, such as under the chin and face area. In addition, people with sweating problems can prevent excessive sweating by applying laser lipolysis to the armpit.
The main difference between laser lipolysis and liposuction is the way the fat tissues are removed. In the liposuction method, the fat tissues are removed from the body by vacuuming through cannulas, while in the laser lipolysis method, they are excreted through the urine. For this reason, liposuction is preferred in cases where the adipose tissue is too high to be excreted with urine.
