Where is liposuction be performed?
Areas where there is excess fat. Chin, upper arms, breast, abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs (inner + outer), knees, calves and ankles.
Liposuction is one of the operations that has been in the field of plastic surgery for more than 40 years. Liposuction is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure used to remove localized areas of fat from the body through a small thin tube called a cannula. The fat from the targeted area is suctioned from the body through this tube to help patients achieve a slim and balanced appearance. This is the classical liposuction method we know about.
This is not a weight loss procedure; instead, it is a way to remove the excess fat that is not responsive in otherwise healthy individuals. The fat cells removed during liposuction are permanently removed. It is important to note, however, that patients can still gain new fat cells, so following a healthy diet, lifestyle and exercise plan after treatment can help prevent new fat gain.
High Definition Liposuction can be called a new perspective. Liposction, previously known as just a fat removal operation, has gained a new definition aimed at revealing body contours with the development of technology. HD lipo or Vaser is a new ultrasound liposuction procedure that takes traditional lipo to the next level. Just like with regular lipo, HD removes fat strategically from some places in the body, to show off the natural structure beneath.
VASER is short for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy of Resonance. This procedure uses a device that liquefies the fat cells before removing them from the body. We are also applies tumescent fluid to the area, which helps break down the fat even more and also sedates the location.
After the fat is totally broken down, with using suction to remove it from the body completely. This method can be used on almost any body part, such as the arms, chest, shoulders, abs, buttocks, and inner thighs. HD lipo sculpts the body to the perfect natural shape, removing fat from select areas and, if necessary, re-injecting the fat into other areas for the best possible contours. On top of that, in classical Lipusuction, we avoid fat removal and uneven irregular appearance on its surface. This is its most important advantage.
Who Are The Best Candidates for High Definition Liposuction?
First of all, we need to remind that this is not a weight loss method. This is a body shaping method and therefore patients who are overweight, if the body mass index above 32 for example, are not suitable for this method.
The ideal candidate for HD lipo is in good shape, has a solid underlying musculature, and don't have much fat that needs removing. If you want a "shredded" look, this procedure can help you get it.
Patients whose body fat level has decreased to a certain level, for example, patients who do sports, who already have infrastructure, are more suitable for HD Lipo. When the patient is a suitable candidate for the operation, it is possible to shape the body after a mild fat removing. It does not matter whether a woman or a man. Applying the Vaser Liposuction method to reveal body contours gives much better results.
Women are mostly visiting to our clinic for to create the waist line or to provide the waist-hip ratio. In order to give the body a curve, we usually injecting the fat taken after liposuction into other necessary areas. In men, this method can be preferred to give the abdominal muscle appearance we call six pack.
How does a patient prepare for liposuction surgery?
The preparation process is of course very important. First of all, it is necessary to stop smoking at least two weeks before the operation. Smoking is a big risk in both classical Lipo and ultrasonic Lipo.
Also, ertain medications like aspirin and blood thinners may need to be paused before the procedure. In some cases, blood work is done ahead of time to ensure that the client is a good candidate for anesthesia. Finally, the day of surgery, there will be a period where no food or drink should be taken; this is typically about 12 hours before the appointment time.
How long the operation will take?
The duration of the operation varies according to the width of the area, but we usually finish it within 2-4 hours. The length of stay in the hospital is 1 or 2 days.
What is the recovery like?
Since there are very small incisions, there is no serious scar problem. As we said before, this is a surgical procedure that involves making small incisions in the skin and inserting a tool called a cannula into the fat pocket. This cannula is attached to a suction device or a syringe to extract the fat.
Patients should wear corsets for 3 weeks. Patients start walking the next day, even in the evening of the surgery. We may have various position restrictions. A surgery with a smooth recovery process. It is an operation that it is recovery takes a short time compared to classical liposuction, and also the recovery time for swelling and bruises is very short.
What kind of results should a patient expect after the procedure?
There are no serious restrictions on this matter. As I said before, corset should be used for 3 weeks, so swimming is not recommended during this period.
What kind of postsurgical care is involved for the target area?
1. The use of corsets is very important. About 3-4 weeks.
2. Patients should pay attention to their diet, constipation should be avoided and fiber nutrition should be taken into consideration.
3. Weight should not be gained. In fact, the most suitable candidates for this surgery are patients who keep their weight for a long time.
The fat cells removed during liposuction are permanently removed. It is important to note, however, that patients can still gain new fat cells, so following a healthy diet, lifestyle and exercise plan after treatment can help prevent new fat gain.
How long the patients should stay in Istanbul?
They should stay in the hospital for 1 or 2 days, including the day of operation. Considering the controls, a 1-week period is a very suitable time for the patient to successfully perform this surgery and return to their country.
