Liposuction is an operation where fat deposits in certain parts of the body are absorbed by a special vacuum or with special injectors, discharging from the body. It is definitely not a weight loss surgery but a body contour correction surgery. With this operation, high in volume fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise are removed, while the number of fat cells present is reduced.
The operation can be done under general anesthesia or sedation, known as semi-unconscious. In order to minimize the bleeding and reduce the risks, a solution called tumesent liposuction is given and excess deposits of fat is aspirated by applying the vacuum using special cannulas. Up to 10% of the body weight can be aspirated at a single time.
In certain patients, laser liposuction using laser heads is preferred for restricted areas to provide faster recovery and tightness in skin tissue.
The surgery can be done under general anesthesia or sedation. There will be protective covers and corsets for liquid leakage from the operated areas after the surgery. You may need to stay in the hospital for 1 night. You can return to your daily life after 1 day. You should wear a corset for 4-6 weeks. During this period, the swelling in the operated area will gradually decrease. There may be bruises that will last for a few days.
