The number of fat cells in the adult human body is constant. After puberty, the number of fat cells does not increase, but the volume of fat cells. This results in weight gain. Eating habits and lifestyle are the main factors in people's weight gain. Liposuction, the method of fat removal, is one of the most requested and requested operations in aesthetic surgery.   Liposuction is a surgical method of removing fatty tissue that cannot be lost through diet or exercise. 

First of all, liposuction is not a direct weight loss method. 

Who needs liposuction surgery?

First of all, a good candidate for liposuction should have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure. We must not forget that liposuction surgery is not weight loss, but a regional method of thinning and shaping the body. The person who decides on this operation must know about it. Liposuction is a systemic solution to health problems that can be applied to anyone who is not pregnant or has given birth. Before the procedure, the risk factors should be thoroughly investigated and the patient should not be at risk from the procedure.

(Liposuction - Review)

How is it done?


Liposuction is applied by removing the excess fatty tissue under the skin using a thin metal cannula and removing it from small holes. For this process, incisions of 3-5 mm are made at the appropriate points on the skin. The amount of fat to be extracted from the region and the correct cannula to be selected. 


The cannulas used for this procedure are 2-5 mm in diameter and 10-45 cm in length. Prior to the process, a specially prepared liquid is given to the area to be ingested. The purpose of this fluid is to loosen the connective tissue between the fats in that area and make the procedure easier. Classic liposuction cannulas are used in these methods and are called a classic method. 


In addition to this method, another method is used. Vaser liposuction, this method has two purposes. The first is to break down the connective tissues between the fatty tissues and facilitate the process. But the second main reason is that during the liposuction process, the collagen under the adipose tissue is heated to some extent. 

In which regions can liposuction be applied?






Back-inner parts of arms, hips, thighs, sides of abdomen and waist, inner and outer areas of knee and inner and outer parts of ankle, gland area.



More fat deposits are seen in the abdominal area, abdomen, side of the waist and other areas in the chest area. Occasionally, there may be fat deposits in the regions that require liposuction.

Recovery after Liposuction

Remember that having this application does not mean that you will not gain weight. In order not to gain weight again, it is very important to pay attention to lifestyle, diet and exercise after the operation. If there is frequent weight gain, it will not be possible to achieve success. 

If sagging skin is present in addition to local fat surpluses, existing sagging cannot recover. Abdominal wall prolapse in women having childbirth cannot be removed by liposuction. In addition, this application does not provide the ability to get rid of cellulite.

After the operation

After surgery, the corset should be used during the recovery time recommended by the doctor. These corsets prevent bleeding in the liposuction area thanks to the elastic compression they provide. They also prevent accumulation of blood, hematomas and seroma. 

It is inevitable that there will be some edema and bruising in and around the liposuction. They decrease significantly within 6-8 weeks. After the operation, the procedure of the treated area takes about 8 weeks and the traces of the operation are corrected for up to 6 months. 

Patients who have undergone liposuction surgery usually have a standing period of 4-6 hours. When they are in a stable condition, they can stand and walk around the clinic. After the operation, the patient can immediately return to social life. It is enough to stay in the hospital for one night after the operation.
