Because unwanted fat distorts the body’s silhouette and is responsible for an unpleasant overall body image, liposuction or the surgical removal of
excess fat, is one of the most popular procedures performed worldwide. When non-surgical methods are inadequate, liposuction could be needed. In fact, liposuction is the most reliable and effective way to get rid of localized fat. it is performed under general anesthesia and takes 1-1.5 hours.
Under general anesthesia, fat cells are disintegrated by the help of a vacuum, vibrations, ultrasound energy or laser energy and removed from the body. Skin tightening can also be applied. FDA-approved laser liposuction methods also reduce the amount of bruising and shortens the postoperative recovery time. Swelling in the face, hands and feet could be experienced after the operation. and will disappear within the first few weeks. Normal activity could be presumed within 7-10 days. The minimal scars after the surgery usually disappear within 6-12 months.
The excess energy is stored in our body’s fat tissue, so fat is necessary for our body. It sometimes makes this task extremely intense, causing changes in regional areas and adversely affecting the aesthetic appearance. Locally, fat removal operations aimed at getting rid of increased fat tissue are called liposuction. In the majority of non-surgical methods, fat cells cannot be destroyed, non-surgical methods that provide fat cell destruction provide regional weakening but remain inadequate in body shaping. Therefore, similar appearance is reversed after non-surgical applications. In fact, the most important factor that regulates the body fat and body fat is the healthy nutrition and exercise. Despite diet and exercise, the most reliable and effective way to get rid of regional fat liposuction surgery.
Liposuction operation is a method of absorbing and removing fat tissue by entering cannulae through small holes. Since there is a decrease in the total fat cell number in all liposuction methods, there is no return to preoperative condition. In liposuction operation, fat cells are disintegrated by vacuum, vibrations, ultrasound energy or laser energy and removed from the body. In laser liposuction, skin tightening can be applied during the same procedure. The laser liposuction method, which is FDA approved, also reduces the amount of bruising and shortens the recovery time after the operation.
It is an operation known as VASER liposuction. Since VASER only emits sound waves that affect fat cells, the surrounding tissues, veins, etc. are not damaged. The liquefied oil can be safely removed. Because it only liquefies the fat cells, it has the opportunity to remove more fat than normal liposuction. Aspirated oil can be used for filling by oil injection. With the method defined as Hi-Def, the abdomen appearance can be created.
VASER method is less pain after the operation and the formation of bruises is minimal compared to classical liposuction.
VASER can also be used in the treatment of gynecomastia in men. VASER can be safely removed in any area with regional fat accumulation in the body.
Surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia. Local anesthesia may be preferred in small area applications. It is recommended to use the corset especially after the first month after the operation. Postoperative edema disappears within an average of 10 days and a significant tightening begins from the 3rd week onwards.
