Liposuction is a method of obtaining smoother body lines by vacuuming of excess adipose tissues in some parts of the body. In this way, the fats in the areas where these stubborn fat accumulations are found are taken and the body is given a more proportional appearance. Liposuction, contrary to popular belief, is not a slimming surgery, but contour correction surgery.

The success of surgery in liposuction depends on the elasticity of the patient’s skin, weight and determination of what to expect from the surgery. This surgery should not be seen as a miraculous slimming method. While the volume of fat cells in the body decreases with exercises and strict diets, there is no decrease in the number of fat cells. In liposuction surgeries, the number of fat cells decreases by removing fat cells from the body.

What are the considerations in the postoperative period?

There is not much pain after surgery. Mild pain is eliminated with painkillers. Patients are usually discharged on the same day or a day later. It is possible to return to work in 2-3 days.

There may be swellings and bruises in the period after surgery. He usually gets better in two weeks. However, it takes about 6-12 months for all swelling in the surgical area to come down and take the final shape of the area. During this time, massage application and some other treatments can be applied for support purposes.

In order for the surgery to give effective results, it is appropriate to use a corset in the 1 month period after the operation.

It is useful to pay attention to diet and exercise in the postoperative period. It is important to remember that if overeating continues, weight can be regained in other parts of the body, although not as much as before in the places taken. However, in case of weight gain, the areas that have not been done with liposuction gain weight proportionally.

What are the complications that can be seen after liposuction?

Although liposuction surgeries are very rare, fat embolism occurs. Early mobilization after surgery is recommended to the patient to prevent this life-threatening condition as a result of the fat being mixed into the circulation.

The most important of the long-term complications is that there are fluctuations and dents in the area where the oil is taken. These fluctuations and dents occur due to excessive or irregular fat removal or lack of good skin elasticity.
