Step by Step Liposuction (Body Shaping)
Liposuction is the process of removing subcutaneous fat from the abdomen, hip, jowl, back, waist, inside of the legs and back with a number of devices.
Yes, we can make drawings on the abdomen in suitable patients in the style we want, and we can make some muscle structures more prominent.
No, there may be very little lubrication in the areas where liposuction is performed.
Vaser and jplasma; By interfering with the collagen and dermis layers in the skin, they provide contraction and tightening of the skin. Liposuction surgery, in which at least one of these two devices is no longer used, can unfortunately result in disappointment.
It is safe to take a maximum of 8000 cc of fat at once with liposuction. In numbers above this, some life-threatening complications may occur. The issue to be underlined is that liposuction is not a weight loss surgery, but a body shaping surgery. Therefore, it is not suitable for every patient.
What should I pay attention to after the operation and after how many days can I return to my daily life?
The operation must be performed under general anesthesia and in a full-fledged hospital. After the operation, you usually have to stay in the hospital for 1 night. The drains of the patients who have a drain are removed within 2-3 days. A special corset is put on the patient at the end of the surgery. And we recommend using this corset for 1.5 months. You can take a shower after 5 days. From 5 days onwards, a special diet recipe is prepared for them by our dietician. We recommend rest for the first 5-7 days. After a week, light exercises can be started. After 2-3 weeks, all sports activities can be done.
Will there be skin sagging in the areas where fat is removed after liposuction?
This is a very important and most frequently asked question. Therefore, patient selection is very important. If this method is applied to overweight and obese patients, of course, sagging of the skin will occur. The second important point is that some devices are used in surgery to prevent these sagging that may occur on the skin. Vaser and J-plasma are the 2 devices we use most frequently for the prevention of skin sagging.
For which patients is liposuction suitable?
Liposuction is ideal for patients who are not overweight or obese, have excess fat accumulation in certain areas (such as waist circumference), and do not have excess skin and sagging skin. With liposuction, the body is tried to be put into a certain shape, this method is not used for weight loss.
