Liposuction (Yağ Aldırma) Nedir?


These are the applications performed to eliminate the unbalanced appearance of the body due to the accumulation of fat in certain parts of the body. In cases where, it is difficult to get rid of fat through sports and exercise, especially in people with regional fat accumulation, surgical methods come into focus and aim to save patients from this image. One of the most effective techniques developed to save patients from regional fat accumulation is liposuction, which is the application of a fat removal method.


Liposuction is a medical term that essentially refers to the removal of fat from the body through surgical methods, although there are many variations. The goal is not to lose weight, but to get rid of regional fat accumulation that unbalances the body’s appearance. Today, the classic liposuction and, more recently, Vaser liposuction techniques are the most commonly used. The development of the technique is aimed at removing fatty tissue in the least damaging way possible and increasing patient comfort.


The main objective of liposuction is based on the regional removal of fat. The procedure can generally be performed for anyone who is bothered by the problem of regional fat accumulation. Patients complain of regional fat accumulation due to genetic predisposition and eating habits. To achieve the most effective result of the application and make it permanent, it is necessary to pay attention to the doctor’s recommendations after the operation.


Liposuction is also performed for the filling procedures to be carried out with the fatty tissues of the person’s body. The main purpose of liposuction application for this purpose is to remove fat from the area with regional fat accumulation and inject it into the depressed areas.

Liposuction (Yağ Aldırma) Nasıl Yapılır?


Before starting the liposuction application, an analysis is made of exactly what types of problems exist in which areas. Once the analysis is complete, it is decided whether liposuction should be combined with other operations. In the following process, it is determined how much fat will be removed from which area. The surgical process is initiated by preparing the patient’s psychology for the operation.


Liposuction is a serious operation performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the case, lasting an average of two hours. The fat cells are broken down by injecting a liquid into the area where the fat will be removed or by sending ultrasound waves. With the disintegration of the fat cells, small incisions are made in the area, through these incisions, with the help of a special vacuum cleaner, the disintegrated fat tissue in the area is meticulously aspirated.


If necessary, the removed fat can be injected into another area. This removal and re-injection of fat can extend the duration of the operation. Recently, many techniques such as Vaser liposuction have been developed based on the classic liposuction technique and have allowed us to obtain successful results in clinical practice.


Surgeries performed using the liposuction technique require careful work and effort on the part of the practicing surgeon. Before the operation, physical preparation must be ensured by strictly following the recommendations given by your surgeon. Blood thinners and habits such as smoking and alcohol should be avoided. The diet list given by your doctor before and after the operation must be followed to the letter. Initially, the patients can resume their social life within 5 to 7 days.
