Liposuction is a body shaping, slimming and fat removal operation. Liposuction is recommended to those who want to get rid of their regional fats permanently. With this procedure, excess fat can be removed from the people’s’ body by vacuuming. You can bid farewell to your fats which you cannot get rid of sport exercises and diets. Liposuction which is fat vacuuming is not a weight losing technique. You can use Liposuction for fats in your buttocks, hips, upper legs, arms and abdomen that you cannot manage to melt down. Liposuction is not fit for those whose body-mass index is over 30 and those who have obesity.

Liposuction can also be used in gynecomastia operations in men. Fat removal by liposuction is recommended to people with oversize breasts as well. This way, the oversize breasts in men are reduced and a fit look is created.
Effects of Liposuction
As people gain weight, fat cells in their body increase and enlarge. The purpose of the liposuction application is to remove the person’s excess fat cells. Fat cells more than normal lead to a disruption in person’s body contour and make him/her look thicker. With liposuction, you can make your body contours look thin and more aesthetic. After the liposuction operation, skin tightening operations can be made as well. When excessive amount of fat is removed, the persons may have drooping skin. Where the skin elasticity cannot wrap up this drooping, liposuction can be combined with cosmetic surgeries such as abdomen tightening or neck lift.
Liposuction does not lead to an increase in cellulites and cracks, and is not used for treating cellulitis.
How is Liposuction Applied?
Before the liposuction operation, the patient and physician discuss how much fat is to be removed from which region. The application site is marked. Depending on the fat to be removed, the operation may be realized under local or general anesthesia. Tiny incisions are made in the application site. Then, a solution containing salt and water is transferred to fat cells through this incision. This solution will help fats to dissolve faster and will make the operation easier. Fats dissolved are taken out through thin cannulas. Incisions are closed with aesthetic sutures and the operation is completed.
Post-Liposuction Operation Recovery Process
Duration of the liposuction operation may vary depending on the amount of the fat to be removed. This operation generally takes 5 to 7 hours. You are recommended to stay at the hospital for one day after the operation. Corset is worn in the fat removal area to accelerate the recovery process. It is important to wear that corset for 30 days. This way, the dermal tissue in the application site will get used to its new place faster and edema will disappear sooner.
The effect of liposuction is visibly noticed within 4-5 weeks. People look slimmer and curvy body lines become prominent.
