Cosmetic Surgeries


Liposuction is the surgical procedure for “fat removal.” This surgery is one of the most frequently performed surgeries by aesthetic surgeons. Fat accumulations in different parts of the body are removed either by the classic method, using thin cannulas to vacuum the fat, or by using auxiliary devices. Although different names are given or promoted as being performed by different methods, the basic procedure is the removal of fat. In recent years, device-assisted liposuction surgeries have been performed, facilitating the removal of fat with ultrasonic (VASER LIPOSUCTION), vibration, or laser methods. Each method may have different disadvantages and some complications.

Liposuction cannot be a method for losing weight. After gaining a significant amount of weight, you cannot say, “I’ll have my fats removed and return to my old shape.” Liposuction surgery can remove fats in limited and specific areas. This partially provides thinning and shaping, but it does not make you lose weight. The biggest complications in this surgery occur when the patient has high expectations and desires, leading to aggressive and excessive fat removal. It is one of the surgery classes where surgeons need to be very careful.

Liposuction can be applied to both women and men. The areas of fat accumulation are different in men, but the procedure is performed in the same way. It is often combined with tummy tuck surgeries.

Which areas can liposuction be applied to?

  • Chin
  • Breast
  • Front of the abdomen
  • Sides of the abdomen
  • Hips
  • Inner thighs and knees, front of the thighs
  • Ankles
  • Back

Precautions before liposuction surgery and the surgery process

Determining the suitable patient for this surgery is very important. It should not be performed on patients with advanced diabetes, bleeding disorders, uncontrolled severe hypertension, or serious chronic diseases (heart, kidney, lung). Serious complications such as bleeding and wound healing disorders may occur.

The surgery can be performed in the summer, but the patient should be informed that wearing a corset during this period may be a bit inconvenient. If you are using blood thinners or have started a medication like Roaccutane, you should inform your surgeon. You should also provide information about your previous surgeries and allergies.

The surgery is generally performed in a hospital setting. General anesthesia should be preferred. Cannulas are advanced through small incisions. Before that, a special prepared mixture called tumescence is given to the area where fat will be removed. After an appropriate waiting period, fats are removed with a special vacuum system. A corset is worn after the procedure. You will stay in the hospital for 1 day. The next day, your control will be performed, and your prescription will be given, and you will be discharged. Your control will be done in the clinic. For small area liposuction procedures such as chin liposuction, you can go home the same day.

Post-surgery process:

Your control and dressing will be done at the clinic 3 days after the surgery. You will wear the corset for 1 month. You should be careful with your movements and rest as much as possible in the first week. We recommend sitting upright and not walking too much. There may be slight bruising in the treated areas, which will disappear shortly. You can take a warm shower after 1 week. We can allow you to fly 1 week to 10 days after the surgery.

You should be careful not to gain weight after liposuction. The more careful you are, the longer you can maintain the results we achieve.
