In adults, the number of fat cells in the body is constant and does not increase with age. In the case of weight gain, the volume of the cells increases, not the number. The volume of these cells decreases with diet and exercise. Belly region, hip, hip, inner and outer sides of the legs and inner knees are areas of resistant lubrication. Diet and exercise have limited effects on these areas.
Liposuction is the operation of removing the subcutaneous adipose tissue that disrupts the body contour and shaping the body under negative pressure using various special cannulas. Liposuction is not a weight loss method. It is a regional body shaping surgery in resistant areas where diet and exercise cannot affect.
Liposuction is mostly performed with general anesthesia. Local anesthesia may be a suitable method for small amount of vacuum liposuction. The duration of the operation varies between 1-3 hours depending on the amount of liposuction.
It is necessary to avoid smoking for 2 weeks before the operation, to regulate the use of blood thinners such as aspirin, etc. for 7-10 days, and to avoid using herbal medicines, tea, etc.
Liposuction is surgery and carries risks. There are risks related to general or local anesthesia, bruising in the applied area, sensory changes, contour irregularities due to wound healing, damage to vessels, nerves and deep organs, asymmetries, edema, and wound healing problems.
In a safe liposuction procedure, 4-5 liters of fat can be removed in one session.
