Liposuction is the process of removing the fat stored in certain areas of the body (abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, arms, back, chin and neck) by vacuuming and creating more aesthetic body frame. Vaser liposuction which is applied in Can Hospital, is a method preferred in famous aesthetic centers in the world because it causes much less bruising and pain compared to other liposuction procedures (classical, ultrasonic or laser liposuction) and provides better recovery and stretching of the skin.
Who is a good candidate for liposuction?
Liposuction is suitable for patients who have fatty tissues resistant to diet and genetically stored in their bodies. The best results are obtained by removing of localized fat tissues that can not be dissolved by diet and exercise. An acceptable body contour is obtained as a result of the procedure. Liposuction is not recommended for obesity treatment. Patients who are close to their ideal weight but have excess fat are suitable for this procedure.
Before appliying the procedure, a detailed physical examination of the patient should be performed. Body areas with excess fat are marked to provide an easier and safer process. Body mass index is also a critical factor. Being close to the ideal weight for the patient is also a critical factor.
• The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia and sedation as well as under general anesthesia.
• Incisions (3-4 mm) that are made on the skin to place the cannulas can heal without leaving a scar.
• With the help of cannulas, fat tissue melted by laser are removed.
After the surgery, elastic corsets are used for 2-3 weeks in order to heal smoothly. After the procedure, the patient can go home and get back to normal life within 1-2 days.
Bruises and Swelling
It may take 3-4 weeks for the bruises to disappear and 6-8 weeks for the swelling to fade after the procedure.
Maintaining aesthetic appearance
In order to maintain aesthetic body frame, physical exercises and LPG application may be recommended after liposuction. Very rarely, in the area where the fat tissue is removed, especially in patients who have less skin elasticity, an undulation may occur which can not be removed.
