What is liposuction and who is a suitable candidate for the surgery?

Although we pay attention to diet and exercise, there are cases where the fat between the abdominal muscle and the skin is permanent. Here, the most suitable solution for this situation is Liposuction./p>

Liposuction is not a weight loss method, it is the removal of the local fat tissue by vacuuming through a thin cannula by creating a very small, scar-free incision.

Liposuction surgery is the most preferred aesthetic operation all over the world. In addition to classical liposuction surgeries, Vaser liposuction and Laser Liposuction are frequently applied recently.

The difference of Vaser Liposuction is that fat tissue is aspirated by making it liquid with the help of ultrasonic waves. Thus, more fat is removed in a short time and the operation is completed so that less swelling and bruising occur. With Vaser Liposuction, the veins, nerves, muscles and skin structure are directly targeted to adipose tissue without being traumatized, so that a faster recovery is achieved compared to other techniques and the fat taken is not damaged, so it can be used in another area that the body needs.

Laser Liposuction is the suction of fat by breaking it down with laser frequency.

The use of a medical corset after all operations will increase the effectiveness of the operation by creating an integrity between the muscle and skin tissue after liposuction.

Although liposuction is generally applied to women, it is frequently applied to the chest (gynecomastia) and around the navel in men. Some men who are interested in fitness and lose weight with regular exercise, whatever they do, can not see the full response of their work because the subcutaneous fat tissue around the navel and nipple remains. In this case, the best solution would be liposuction.

In which areas is liposuction applied?

  • Abdomen and belly area
  • Sides and back of the waist
  • Breast (Gynocomasty in men)
  • Breast (in women)
  • Hips
  • Lower arms
  • Nape
  • Double Chin
  • Inside and outside of the leg
  • Butt
  • Knees
  • Ankle
  • Back

Before liposuction, your surgeon will plan the areas to be treated and how many liters of fat will be removed according to your expectations and ensure you get the best look. The elasticity of your skin is important for liposuction and affects success after the surgery. Skin dimples may occur after the surgery in people whose skin tissue is loose.

Although the fat cells removed through liposuction are permanently removed, a healthy diet and exercise are crucial for maintaining your new appearance.

What changes with liposuction?

Liposuction is one of the aesthetic operations that will change your appearance in the fastest and most dramatic way. Women get a more fit appearance when the fat around the belly, waist, and hip area is removed. In BBL (Brazilian butt) application, since the fat removed from the belly and waist area is transferred to the butt area, you will both get rid of the fat in the belly and waist area and have a more rounded and voluminous butt.

With the fat taken from the belly and waist in men, the true shape of the shoulders emerges. Also, nipple sagging and breast volume, which are often seen with Gynecomastia application, will disappear and they will look as they should.

What does not change with liposuction?

Although this application allows you to reach a fit appearance, it is not a weight-loss application. Our new appearance after the aspiration of the subcutaneous fat tissue with the help of a cannula should be supported by diet and exercise, otherwise, the fat cells in other areas will start to expand because of unhealthy nutrition and a sedentary lifestyle. This application does not prevent cellulite in people with cellulite problems.

Will the removed fat come back after liposuction?

You will get excellent results with proper nutrition and exercise after liposuction. If you maintain your weight after the surgery, no negative changes will occur. Even a few pounds you gain after the surgery will not change your appearance. However, attention should be paid to the weight gain of 10% or more of the bodyweight as it will activate new fat cells. Even if there is a rapid and high weight gain after liposuction, the liposuction area will look much better than before the surgery because there is no fat tissue in this area.

What is Six Pack surgery and who is a suitable candidate for it?

For the abdominal muscles to become prominent, the body fat ratio should be below 10% in men and 18% in women. The areas where our body stores fat vary according to everyone. In some cases, no matter how much weight you lose, the fat deposit in the belly area prevents your abdominal muscles from appearing. In this case, Six Pack surgery is a very practical type of surgery where the abdominal muscles are made prominent.

Generally, Six Pack surgery is suitable for men, and Two Pack surgery will also be suitable for women who people who have sagging in the belly area after losing weight, who do regular sports activities but who have not achieved a significant abdominal muscle appearance due to the fat ratio in the belly area.
