Liposuction: What You Need to Know?

Plastic surgery is one of the fastest developing and growing fields of medicine. Behind this is people's desire to be happy with themselves and their appearance. Although it is not considered as important as major health problems, I think a very justified desire is people's desire to be at peace with themselves. My belief in this desire has a great share in my research and writing about aesthetic operations.

Liposuction also occupies a large place in these surgical operations. Because one way to get rid of the resistant fats in their bodies and have a healthier life, what is required for liposuction to become permanent is adopting a regular and healthy life.

Turkey is the center of liposuction and aesthetic surgery with its world-renowned specialist surgeons, clinics and hospitals equipped with the latest technology, as well as very reasonable prices. Turkey ranks second in Europe and ninth in the world in terms of the number of plastic surgeons. This number will definitely tell you something about the operations performed.

I have prepared this article about those who are curious about liposuction, in line with the information I received from the experts. In this article, you can find what you are wondering about liposuction, different techniques, application and healing processes, as well as what needs to be considered. At the end of the page, I have added a Frequently Asked Questions section that consists of both me and other people's curiosity about liposuction. If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact and ask questions.



What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is one of the most applied aesthetic operations for many years. But what makes liposuction so popular?

Liposuction is a surgical method applied to remove the excess fat tissue and give a better shape to the body in people whose weight problems are not caused by obesity but cannot be eliminated by weight loss methods. It is popularly known as liposuction. But in these processes, fat cells are taken, not fat. Therefore, fat formation is prevented in the areas where liposuction is performed. This application is especially applied to areas where stubborn lubrication is seen, such as hips, hips, abdomen, waist and knees.

Liposuction is generally applied by vacuuming the fat tissues, which are made more fluid by various methods, through 1-2 mm incisions, using thin and long cannulas with a diameter of 2-3 mm.

Popular Liposuction Types

Liposuction is a form of plastic surgery that has been used for a long time. Therefore, it has undergone many changes and transformations over the years. With the development of technology, new techniques have emerged and much more advanced methods have been developed. In Turkey, these techniques are generally used in hospitals and clinics where the latest technology is used. The most popular techniques are:

In the classical technique, which is the most applied liposuction technique, a mixture of liquid is injected into the area where the fat will be removed before the operation. The application can be performed under full anesthesia as well as under local anesthesia. 3 mm from the 2 mm incisions opened in the region after anesthesia. The oil extraction process is performed by entering with cannulas of diameter. This classical method also has different sub-types that vary according to the people and the regions where the structures will be taken.

The second technique is Laser Liposuction. Here, fats are broken down not by liquid but by laser beam; liquid oil pieces are taken from the area they are in with the help of cannulas. The fact that these cannulas are thinner than those used in the classical technique eliminates the problem of postoperative scarring.

The third type is Vaser or Ultrasonic Liposuction, which draws on the technology the most. In this method, the area to be operated is reached with the help of small tubes used during the surgery, and the fat cells are softened by applying ultrasonic vibrations. Thus, the softened fat cells are more easily absorbed.

Another method is Laser Lipolysis. This process is one of the later ones among the liposuction methods. The difference from the above liposuction methods is this: In liposuction, the fat tissues are completely removed, while in lipolysis, the fat tissues are melted, but they are left inside the body and they are excreted in the urine. As the name suggests, the melting of adipose tissues is carried out with a laser. Since the fats are left inside the body, this method is applied in areas where there is little fat such as the jowl. Let me also say that this method prevents sagging and tightens the skin.

Who are Suitable for Liposuction?

Like any surgical operation, it should be your priority to talk to a specialist doctor in liposuction. You should know that liposuction is not a weight loss method. This process is a method that provides regional thinning and body lines to become smoother. If you have a weight problem other than regional lubrication, experts recommend that you apply a controlled diet and sports program first. It is best to apply to liposuction for resistant fats that you cannot get rid of as a result of these.

Liposuction can be applied to anyone over the age of 18 who does not have a systemic health problem, is not pregnant or has just given birth. But heart disease, diabetes, etc. Before giving an indication for application to people with systemic health problems, tests are definitely applied and necessary precautions are taken. If compelling situations arise in these tests, liposuction cannot be performed on those people.

Although age is not an obstacle for liposuction, some elderly patients cannot undergo liposuction due to loss of skin elasticity.

Liposuction Surgery Process

Liposuction surgeries take an average of 1 to 3 hours. The amount of fat that is considered medically appropriate to be removed in an operation is between 2.5 and 4.5 liters.

Before the application, the area to be shaped and fat removed is marked by the surgeon. Afterwards, general or local anesthesia is applied according to preference. In order to alleviate the pain in the area where the application will be made, the mixture liquid solution is injected into the area. This liquid not only numbs that area but also hardens it so that the application can be made more comfortable.

Afterwards, 1-2 mm incisions are made on the skin and cannulas are placed on the oily area from there. The vacuum machine to which the cannulas are attached sucks the relatively liquefied oil. The vacuum pipe is moved on that surface in order to break up the oil. After the surgery, the incisions are left open for a short time in order to prevent the fluid from flowing out and the formation of edema. Afterwards, the cuts are stitched and the area is tightly bandaged.

In Vaser Liposuction, the fat in the area where the operation is performed is softened by ultrasonic vibrations and thus they are easily absorbed. The remaining processes of the procedure are the same as the classical liposuction method we described above.

In Laser Liposuction, laser beams are sent to the excess fat cells in the area to be operated with 2-3 mm fiber cannulas and these cells are liquefied. Then, the absorption process is performed with thin cannulas that are transmitted under the skin through the millimetrically opened incisions. The fact that these cannulas are thinner than those used in the classical technique eliminates the problem of postoperative scarring.

Healing Process after Liposuction Surgery

Local or general anesthesia can be applied in liposuction surgery. General anesthesia is preferred in laser liposuction and the person stays in the hospital for one night after the operation. In other methods, patients do not need to be hospitalized if there are no complications in the surgery. Patients under general anesthesia can go home after a few hours of rest.

Post-operative pain can last for 3-4 days. During this time, your doctor will give you pain relievers. Patients who can return to work in 3-7 days, remove their dressings after two days, have their stitches removed one week later, and use a liposuction corset in three weeks.

People start walking 2 weeks after the surgery. For heavy sports exercises, it is necessary to wait at least 6 weeks. Although the swelling and stiffness that occurs after the surgery usually disappears within 2 months, the desired results are generally seen 6-9 months after the surgery.

What You Should Be Careful About in Liposuction

Doctors state that lymph drainage massage performed before and after surgery makes patients feel better. Recovery and post-operative care after liposuction surgery may vary depending on the area treated and the amount of fat removed.

It is of great importance that you follow the doctor's instructions for the healing process to be successful and short-lived. Your doctor may prescribe antibiotics and pain relievers during this time to prevent the risk of infection.

It is very important to get up early and move a lot to speed up the recovery period.

The positive results of liposuction usually last longer if you maintain your weight and can be permanent. The thing to remember here is that liposuction does not prevent weight gain. It is up to you whether or not to regain these weights. For this reason, following a healthy diet that includes lean protein, fruits and vegetables, whole grains and low-fat milk after liposuction surgery will accelerate your healing process and increase the success and permanence of the operation.

Liposuction Prices in Turkey

Especially in recent years, Turkey has become the health tourism center of Europe, the Middle East and even the Americas. The biggest factor in this is the world-renowned doctors who are experts in their fields and the latest technology equipment, as well as very reasonable prices.

In the field of plastic surgery, Turkey is the 2nd country with the highest number of doctors in Europe and 9th in the world. Therefore, every year thousands of people from different parts of the world prefer Turkey for liposuction and other operations.

Prices vary according to the liposuction technique to be applied and the area where the fat will be removed. A liposuction operation in Turkey costs between 3000 € and 7000 €. The differences in these prices are due to the facilities and equipment of the hospital or clinic, and mostly the experience and competence of the surgeon who will perform the operation.

Frequently Asked Questions

The duration of the operation varies according to the number of areas to be operated on and the amount of fat. The duration of the operation also varies according to the technique to be applied. On average, it takes between 1 hour and 3 hours.

Liposuction can be performed on any patient over the age of 18. However, it is important that the areas where liposuction is performed do not lose their elasticity. For this reason, sagging can be seen after liposuction in patients with advanced age. Liposuction is not applied to people who are too old and have lost their skin elasticity.

As long as excess fat is not removed from the body in the liposuction process, there is no harm. However, those who adopt an unhealthy diet after this procedure or use this method as a short-term slimming tool instead of getting rid of regional fat cells may be disappointed because they cannot achieve the result they expect in the long term.

Although liposuction surgery is the same for both men and women, the areas applied vary. This surgery, which is applied to the lower neck, belly and waist parts of men, can be applied to larger areas such as the lower neck, legs, arms, hips, waist and belly in women.

After the operation, doctor checks are generally done on a weekly basis. Your doctor will give you a timetable for check-ups. The success of the operation will be determined by the results of these checks. It is of great importance to go to these controls regularly in order to accelerate the recovery process of the patients and increase the success rate of the surgery.

People who work in non-difficult and non-strenuous jobs can return to work 3 days after the liposuction surgery. For people who work in demanding and tiring jobs, doctors recommend returning to work after a week.

According to the liposuction technique, it is possible for patients to have scars on their bodies. In order to take the fat out, 2-3 mm incisions are made in certain places and aesthetic sutures are used to close these incisions. Depending on the area where these stitches are placed, the probability of scarring also varies. In some areas the remaining traces are indistinct, while in others they may be more pronounced. However, since these traces are very small, they are not visible unless carefully looked at from the outside.

Some diseases such as respiratory problems, heart problems, and vascular occlusion prevent liposuction. Before the application, the necessary analyzes and tests are performed on the patients and it is decided whether the patients are suitable or not as a result of these examinations.

The scars left on the body after liposuction are quite unclear, but more obvious scars may remain in some areas. Patients can have aesthetic applications in order to remove these scars. It is also possible to perform another aesthetic application later on in areas with liposuction.

After liposuction, a corset should be used to collect and tighten the regions. This corset should be used at all times for approximately a month. Afterwards, it should be used only during the day for up to 3 weeks.

With liposuction, fat can be removed from any desired area. The only area that liposuction cannot be operated on is the lower butt area. The reason for this is, in these areas, collapse and thus a bad appearance may occur.

The amount of fat to be taken varies from person to person and the number areas to be operated on. However, it is possible to get 5000-6000 cc of fat from a person. But it is not possible to get that much fat from everyone. The amount of fat taken varies according to body structure, weight and region.
