Instead of suffering from problems due to regional fat deposits and difficult-to-lose body weight; you may choose to benefit from liposuction. This is a very safe method to perform in today’s clinical practice.
How is Liposuction Performed?
A special mixture is injected into the planned area of intervention under the skin before the removal of fat. This mixture is responsible for accomplishing two tasks. One is to reduce bleeding and the other is to facilitate fat removal. Fat cells are, then, removed from very small holes in the skin using a small metal cannula.
Depending on which part of the body will be intervened, the duration of liposuction may vary. During the procedure, fat depositing compartments will also be resected along with the fat cells. Therefore, significant slimming is possible.
Which Body Regions Are Suitable For Undergoing Liposuction ?
Until recently, liposuction could only be performed in a limited selection of different body parts. However; with the advances in technology, it is now possible to perform liposuction in any selected area of the body.
In men, liposuction is most commonly performed in the waist, abdomen, and the jowl.
In women; the abdomen, butts, hipline, inner thighs, and the upper parts of the legs are the common areas of liposuction.
However, the procedure can also be applied to knees, ankles, the submental area called the jowl, armpits, and the back of individuals.
Who is the right candidate for liposuction?
We recommend liposuction to people who have no loss of skin elasticity. If the skin is not elastic enough, a skin lift intervention in the area may be necessary to prevent any sagging that may occur after the liposuction.
Furthermore, smokers should stop smoking before undergoing liposuction. Because smoking can impose risks on the patient, as well as preventing skin recovery.
Also, dieting individuals can undergo liposuction after they lose weight and complete the dieting schedule.
What are the characteristics of the recovery process?
Exercising care on a few points may ensure a very comfortable recovery process. You may need to rest for 4 to 5 days after liposuction. At the end of this period, you can get back to your daily life, engaging in light physical activities.
The healing process after liposuction is actually 2 months. After 2 to 3 weeks after the procedure, you can start performing your entire set of daily activities. After the procedure, you should pay attention to skin hygiene to prevent the small entry points of laparoscopy from getting infected.
