Liposuction is the aspiration of the fat tissue in our body from small holes with the help of cannulas. Depending on the body characteristics, every person may have some fat deposition that he/she cannot lose with healthy diet or exercise. Some people bear fat in their bellies, some in their hips, some in their back and breasts and some in their thighs and legs, or combination of these all. If a person is not able to give these weights away with diet and exercise, a liposuction procedure will be of help for body shaping. Excessive fat tissue is removed from small incisions with a specific kind of surgical cannula. Techniques may vary in liposuction as laser-assisted liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, conventional liposuction and lipomatic liposuction. The technique and technology is selected considering the patient and his/her body characteristics. Dr. Guner Clinic has a specific approach for body shaping with technologic instruments that he has in his clinic.
The patient should know that liposuction is not a surgery to lose weight or treat obesity but a body contouring procedure instead. The patient should not expect to be transformed from a fat body fat into a thin one only with a surgical operation. A good-looking healthy body is the combination of a healthy diet, a moving body, a positive mindset and correction of the structural fat deposition.
If liposuction is decided for a combination of body areas, it may be done in more than one session to reduce the possible complications. The fat taken by liposuction may be given as fat transfer to the other parts of the body, including face.
Detailed pre-operative consultation is significant to share opinions between the patient and the plastic surgeon, and the liposuction areas and the technique are decided. Medical history, medications, comorbidities, tobacco use and allergies are of importance and should be declared. The pre-operative photographs are taken before the operation and the surgical sites for liposuction are marked. The operation can be under general anesthesia or deep sedation. An anesthetic solution is given to the fat areas so the operation is done with patient comfort. The time of operation may vary between 1-3 hours. The patient can go home on the same day after having rest and can go back to work and social life very soon. The effect is both immediate and late. Immediate change is seen right after the bandages are off and the final shape sets after a few months.
You can get rid of unwanted fat that insist to stay despite diet and exercise. You can have a natural looking and fit appearance with a liposuction procedure in the expert hands.
