Liposuction

Liposuction

Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery

Liposuction is a surgery that removes fat from the body by absorbing fat deposits in certain parts of the body with a special vacuum or special injectors. It is definitely not a weight loss surgery, but a body contour correction surgery. With this surgery, while the fat tissue that is increased in volume and resistant to diet and exercise is removed from the body, the number of existing fat cells is also reduced. In liposuction surgery, the stubborn fat area is inflated with a special liquid injection. Then, several incisions of a few mm length are made on or near this area. From these incisions, metal pipes called cannula with a diameter of 2-6 mm are inserted into the subcutaneous layer, depending on the patient's condition, and the cannulas are connected to the vacuum device with transparent hoses.

Before & After Operation

The operation is performed in hospital conditions in the operating room and under the supervision of an anesthesiologist. A combination of local anesthesia and sedation (intravenous sleep) is preferred. Only local anesthesia can be applied in very limited small areas. The operation takes between 1-5 hours, depending on the condition of the areas where vacuum will be applied. Cannula entry holes are usually not sutured or 1-2 sutures are placed. Sometimes, special thin tubes (resistors) are placed in the areas by using cannula holes, this helps to drain the serum accumulated inside. Depending on the extent of the surgery, it is possible to leave the hospital on the same day or after 24 hours. Post-surgery is usually comfortable. The pain is very minor and can be relieved with medication. At the end of the surgery, a special bandage is applied to the vacuum applied areas and the patient is dressed in a special corset. After the operation, the patient is dressed. The patient continues to wear the corset for 5-6 weeks. There may be purplish color changes in the vacuum applied areas. There may be swelling, tingling and burning sensation. These disappear spontaneously within 3 weeks. The scars of the operation also become vague within 2-6 months.
