What is Liposuction and How is it Applied?
Liposuction, which we can define as body shaping, is applied to areas of the patient’s body that they are not happy with. It is possible to achieve the look you want with this surgical procedure which is performed to ablate the excessive fat in areas such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, or neck.
You should not choose liposuction as a weight-loss method. If you are complaining about your weight, you can choose diet, sports, or stomach surgery methods. When you have too many fat deposits in certain parts of your body and have stable body weight, you might be a good candidate for liposuction. Liposuction is preferred to ablate excessive fat from irresponsive parts of the body.
In Which Areas of the Body is Liposuction Applied?
Liposuction, which can be applied to many parts of the body, is performed as a result of the patient’s preference and medical advice. This process which is one of the advised methods for getting rid of undesired fat in the body is applied to areas such as;
- Abdominal area,
- Upper arms,
- Calves and ankles,
- Chest and back area,
- Hips and thighs,
- Chin and neck.
Liposuction, which is among the most popular aesthetic interventions from the past to the present, is mostly applied to areas such as the hips, abdomen, waist, knees where lubrication is more intense.
The procedure is performed by vacuuming and ablating the fluidized fat tissues through 1-2 mm incisions by using thin and long cannulas with a diameter of 2-3 mm.
Who Should Prefer Liposuction?
Liposuction is not a weight-loss way. It is a method that provides regional thinning and makes the body lines smoother. Over-weight patients, not have regional fat deposition, should not prefer this method.
If you want to benefit from the liposuction operation, you should first see a doctor. Unless you have a systemic health problem or you are pregnant or gave birth, you can take advantage of this procedure. Liposuction, which can be applied at any age, is not recommended at older ages not to cause some health problems.
What are the Pre- and Post-Operation Procedures?
- How to Prepare the Patient?
First of all, you can start the procedure by deciding on the doctor and clinic where you will undergo the operation. Your doctor will check your medical history and decide whether you are suitable for the operation and what you should pay attention to. You should not take certain medications such as blood thinners, three weeks before the surgery.
Before starting the liposuction procedure, the surgeon can mark the areas of your body with circles and lines. The procedure varies depending on how it is done and the technique used. Your surgeon will select the suitable technique for you based on your medical past.
After the surgery, you should prefer specially produced corsets. It is recommended to use special corsets between 4 and 8 weeks. One week after the operation, the stitches are removed and the transition to normal life begins.
- Are There Risks of Liposuction?
Some risks might arise in liposuction as with any operation. Procedure-specific complications might include risks such as fluid accumulation, infection, internal perforation, kidney and heart problems, numbness, and contour irregularities.
If an emergency occurs after the surgery, you should contact your doctor as soon as possible and take the necessary precautions!
