It is a surgery to provide contouring for people with regional fat deposits. The goal is not to make individual lose weight. However, in some cases, it can be used to motivate the patient or to prepare for a surgery planned at the next step. (Abdominal lift etc…)
Liposuction is the procedure of removing excess fat in the body with vacuumed fine tubes with the help of 4-5 mm incisions made near the areas from which fat will be removed. I use the tumescent or ultrasonic technique (vaser). The suitable technique is decided after the examination of patient.
A corset is used for 4-6 weeks after the surgery. Postoperative pain is easily taken under control with painkillers. Depending on the amount of fat removed, patient can return to work within 3-7 days.
It can be applied to many areas such as the face, jowl, arms, abdomen, waist, leg, thigh, breasts. If patient needs, some of the fat tissue taken can be injected into the collapsed areas to ensure the contours to look better. The best result is obtained in cases where the skin has not lost its elasticity.
It is one of the surgeries in which patient satisfaction is the highest among the cosmetic surgeries.
