Liposuction removes fat from body parts such as the abdomen, hips, hips, arms, and neck using the vacuuming technique. 1-2 mm incisions are made in the fat tissues and the procedure is performed by vacuuming. It is an operation that aims to reduce lubrication in some people who have weight loss and does not decrease in case of exercise. With the liposuction operation, the number of fat cells is reduced and it helps remove excess fat accumulation in certain body parts. Liposuction application is frequently preferred not only by women but also by men.

How is liposuction surgery performed?

A liposuction operation is performed by making a few millimetric incisions on the skin and vacuuming. The word “suction” means vacuuming. Fat cells begin to gain volume as people enter puberty. The purpose of this operation is to reduce the number of fat cells. Liposuction operation is performed under general or local anesthesia. Depending on the number of fat cells to be removed, it varies from thirty minutes to six hours. Self-melting sutures are placed on the incision areas. Usually, one stitch is sufficient for each entry point.

What should be done after liposuction surgery?

  • Iron is a substance that helps the production of blood cells and balances the color tone of the skin. For this reason, iron consumption is very important in removing the bruising that occurs in the postoperative period. Excess tea and coffee consumption will slow down this process.
  • Vitamin C also plays an important role in this process. It will increase the rate of healing while regulating capillary blood circulation.
  • Zinc consumption plays a major role in the healing of internal and external wounds after the operation while accelerating the process with its fat-burning feature.
  • Not consuming products such as salt and sugar after the operation will accelerate fat burning and prevent edema.
  • Care should be taken to consume fresh vegetables, nuts, and legumes.
  • You can drink plenty of water, unsweetened natural fruit juices, and herbal teas. Fluid intake plays an important role in the healing process.
  • Alcohol consumption should be avoided.

How much fat is removed with liposuction?

It is possible to remove a large amount of fat with liposuction. This operation can be performed in a session. 8-10 kilograms of fat mass can be removed from the body in one session, but high fat intake can disrupt the balance in the body. For this reason, it is considered safe to take 2.5-4 liters of oil in a single session.

What are alternative fat removal methods?

Liposuction is an operation performed under general or local anesthesia. Today, it is also possible to use different technologies and devices such as vaser liposuction, laser liposuction, and cryolipolysis.

Laser Liposuction

Laser liposuction is an operation that is not required to be performed under general anesthesia. It aims to melt the fat mass under the skin. FDA-approved devices using laser beams should be used in the process of melting fat. Another advantage of laser liposuction, which directly targets fat cells, is that the healing process is shorter.


Cryolipolysis is performed by freezing the fat cells under the skin without surgical intervention using FDA-approved cold lipolysis. Sessions can be applied. In cryolipolysis, edema and bruises caused by capillaries are not seen. At the same time, the person can continue his normal life during the day.

Vaser Liposuction

Vaser liposuction is one of the operation methods that do not require general anesthesia. The process of melting or removing fat is carried out by transmitting ultrasonographic sound waves under the skin. Vaser liposuction is generally preferred because the fats to be taken from the person’s body are also used in other applications such as face filling, breast filling, and hip filling.

When does liposuction take effect?

After the operation, the use of a surgical corset should not be shorter than 20 days. It is very important to continue for as long as your doctor deems appropriate for you in terms of body shape and recovery of the skin. After the recovery period after liposuction surgery, the intended tightening and body shape change will settle over time. Within 6 months, this change becomes clear and reaches the maximum level.
