Liposuction (fat removal) method is a plastic surgery method for the surgical removal of stubborn fat tissues that are located in certain parts of the body such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, arms and chin, which do not respond to diet or exercise, and reshape the body lines. Liposuction is done to reduce fat, not for weight loss.

 

 

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not have liposuction. It should also be noted that, due to the decrease in skin elasticity as age progresses and aged skin cannot achieve as effective results as younger skin, additional aesthetic operations such as skin stretching after liposuction or applications to help tighten the skin may be needed. In addition, in the case of advanced age or the presence of excess weight, the possibility of complications due to surgery increases.

For women giving birth, the ideal time would be the end of the first year following birth. In this period, both swelling and excess weight will decrease, and the condition of sagging and cracks in the skin will be clarified. In addition, breastfeeding must have ended and at least two months have passed since. However, if a second pregnancy is considered, this operation should be considered after the second birth. Liposuction is not recommended between two deliveries.

 

After the liposuction operation, the fluid balance in the patient's body should be closely monitored. Since the patient loses a certain amount of fluid during the operation and the drugs used during the liposuction operation are blood pressure lowering, it is recommended to be followed up in the hospital for one day. In order for the skin to recover after the operation, the liposuction area is tightly plastered with a regional corset; When the patient starts to stand up and walk, corset is used. Not wearing a corset can lead to an indented appearance in the liposuction area.

Bruises, swelling or numbness may be experienced in these areas due to the suction of the fat in the area by vacuum by entering the subcutaneous tissue with the help of very thin cannulas. All of these situations will pass in a few weeks. There is no permanent situation. However, the numbness may last longer.

After liposuction, it is recommended that you continue with your sports and healthy diet after the time allowed by the doctor. It would be more beneficial to seek help from a dietitian in this regard. Never forget that not all the fat under the skin is removed during liposuction, only the excess amount is removed. Liposuction is permanent, but weight gain and lubrication can be experienced in other areas. Care must be taken to prevent this.
