Liposuction provides the removal of excess fat that does not melt in the body despite the ideal weight. The purpose of these procedures is to shape the body rather than weaken the patient. Liposuction, which can be applied to almost every part of the body, is most commonly applied to the abdomen, hips, thighs and knees in women; In men, it is most frequently applied to the waist, abdomen and breast areas.
With techniques such as liposhaping, lipoplasty, liposculpture, suction assisted body contouring, suction lipectomy, liposhifting, fat is essentially removed by liposuction and re-injected where necessary.
The person who will undergo liposuction must first be in good general health. Because the process is not a simple process; on the contrary, it is a serious surgical procedure. Post-operative exercise and nutrition are very important.
As in all surgeries, it is necessary to stop smoking 3 weeks before the operation in liposuction surgery. It is necessary to avoid blood thinners and similar substances in the last week.
How is it applied?
Oil absorption is done with the help of vacuum. Either injectors or motor systems are used to create a vacuum. The liposuction process can be facilitated by breaking down the fatty tissue before sucking. Usually ultrasonic energy or lasers are used for this purpose.
It consists of liposuction or injection procedures. In this technique, a large amount of serum is mixed with some anesthetic drug, adrenaline and sometimes bicarbonate and injected into the areas where liposuction will be performed. In this way, numbness is provided in the injection areas. The cannulas used in the process both absorb the fat tissue while opening holes in the fat tissue to be liposuctioned and destroy the surrounding fat cells in the area it passes through. If fat is to be injected to shape the body, the absorbed fat is collected in a sterile environment, washed, filtered and concentrated by centrifugation if necessary. The prepared oil is given to the areas that need to be added with thinner cannulas.
Ultrasound-assisted liposuction is a popular technique in recent years. Before liposuction, pipes transmitting ultrasonic energy are inserted through the holes opened to the skin and the adipose tissue is broken down. It tightens the skin and shortens the recovery process.
Before liposuction, the fat tissue is fragmented with laser using cannulae inserted through small holes. After this process, oil is removed with the help of vacuum. If it is to be applied in limited areas and a very small amount of fat will be removed, only laser is applied and the fat is not absorbed, the fat is expected to melt on its own. The biggest advantage of laser lipolysis systems is rapid tightening of the skin. It is especially advantageous in areas where skin looseness is a problem, such as the inside of the legs and neck, and where there is limited fat accumulation.
Although Vaser Liposuction is basically similar to liposuction, that is, the fat vacuuming operation, it is the ultrasound technology that makes it different, by breaking the fat first. With vaser liposuction, also called ultrasonic liposuction, the adipose tissue under the skin is liquefied and broken down with a special sound wave that only affects the fat cells. Thin tubes called fat cell cannula, separated from the skin surface, are pulled out. Thus, it is possible to remove more adipose tissue in one go compared to classical liposuction.
