Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, liposculpture or lipo, is applied for shaping problem areas, not for weight loss.

  • Overview of Liposuction Operation

    Patients who cannot get results from different methods and positive lifestyle changes, have a stable weight, have a general health condition, and have regional excess problems are a good option for liposuction. Liposuction ensures that the desired area of fat removal becomes firm and elastic, so it is important to approach the operation with reasonable indications. Liposuction is not a sensible method to lose weight and fat gain is usually limited to 3 kilos. Taking too much fat from the application can cause the skin to look saggy. Liposuction is generally not applied to people with a BMI greater than 30.

  • How is Liposuction Performed?

    Liposuction operation usually takes 1-2 hours on average. It can be performed under general or local anesthesia depending on the patient's condition. The incisions applied in liposuction surgery usually do not exceed one centimeter and are applied by the surgeon in such a way that they can be hidden by the natural folds of the skin. The larger the area requiring liposuction, the more incisions need to be made. Generally, after the liposuction procedure, patients can return to their homes on the same day. It is recommended to wear a special compression garment for the period recommended by the specialist after the operation. These special garments help reduce swelling and speed up the recovery process after liposuction.

After having liposuction, patients should receive individual advice from the specialist physician regarding rest, special clothing and time to return to work. In general, patients can return to work after 7 to 10 days. Patients may continue to gain weight after liposuction, so it is important for patients to maintain a healthy diet and a stable weight.
