What is Liposuction

In essence, liposuction is a procedure that uses a suction tool to remove excess fat from the desired areas of your body. These areas may include the abdominal area, hips, thighs, arms, or neck. It is utilized to shape and contour the operation area.

Even though it removes fat from one’s body, liposuction should not be considered as a weight loss method. It only helps with the shaping of the body and does not provide dramatic weight loss.

How is Liposuction Performed?

A liposuction procedure is done under general anesthesia. Once the anesthetic is administered, the surgeon will insert a thin tube, called cannula through very small incisions to loosen and suction the excess fat. The incisions are generally placed in the natural folds of the skin, so they are not obvious once healed.

The surgeon will move the cannula with controlled motions under the patient’s skin to target the body fat. The duration of the surgery depends on the patient’s anatomy and how many areas will be targeted with liposuction. On average, it takes 1-3 hours. Patients need to wear a compress garment after the surgery to minimize swelling and discomfort.

What to Expect from Liposuction

Excess fat deposits that cannot be addressed with diet and exercise can be removed with liposuction. What to expect from liposuction treatment in Turkey is as follows:

  • Preparation: Before the liposuction procedure, you will see the surgeon to go over your expectations, medical history and any medications you are on. He/she will explain what can or cannot be done, and will mark which areas will be targeted with liposuction. You might be required to stop taking certain medications, avoid certain food and drinks and smoking.
  • Procedure: Liposuction in Turkey is performed as an inpatient procedure. The patient will be required to stay at least one night at the hospital. The total duration of the operation might extend up to 3 hours depending on the patient’s goals and anatomical limits. The surgery is performed through very small incisions which are closed with dissolvable stitches afterwards.
  • Recovery: So as to aid with the recovery, you will be required to wear a compression garment after the surgery. You might feel swollen, sore, numbed or aching in the post-operative period. Your surgeon will prescribe pain relief medication to minimize the discomfort stemming from the operation. You must follow the surgeon’s instructions strictly, so as to have a smooth recovery.
  • Results: After the operation, the operation site will be swollen. Depending on the patient’s anatomy, it may take up to 6 months for the swelling to go down completely. So, the results are expected to be visible a couple of months after the surgery. Generally, the results of liposuction treatment are long-lasting. However, gaining or losing weight, aging, and other factors that affect your body shape can impact the results.

What Should Be Done After Surgery?

After having a liposuction in Turkey, you need to keep a few things in mind about your recovery process.

·       The first few weeks

After having a liposuction treatment in Turkey, you will need to put on a compression garment that will put pressure on the operation site. It will help with swelling and minimizing the discomfort. The operated area will be swollen and bruised, but it will gradually heal in a few weeks. In the early recovery period, you will need to avoid strenous physical activity. However, it is important that you don’t stay totally immobile. Taking small walks around the house to promote blood circulation will help with the healing and will reduce the risk of developing blood clots.

·       Swelling in a few months

Like you would after any other surgical procedure, you will experience swelling to a certain extent after liposuction. It might give the delusion that the surgery was not successful, but as the swelling goes down, you will start seeing the actual results. It may take up to six months for the swelling to fully go down, so, you need to be patient.

Is Surgery Scar Left After Liposuction?

Liposuction is done through very small incisions, 3-4 milimeters in size. So as to conceal them, the surgeon places the incisions on the natural folds of the body, so, after the operation, the incisions will be barely visible.

Is Liposuction Permanent?

Liposuction is basically the removal of the fat deposits from certain areas of the body. Once performed, it permanently removes the fat cells in the targeted areas. However, your habits, lifestyle and general physical health can affect your results. So as to have long-lasting results, you need to maintain a stable weight. As the surgeon basically shapes the body fat during a liposuction surgery, gaining or losing weight will affect your results. So as to maintain your results, you can exercise regularly, follow a healthy diet, stay hydrated and try to keep your weight stable.

Is Liposuction Painful?

Liposuction treatment in Turkey is performed under general anesthesia. That means you will be unconscious during the operation, thus feel no pain. However, you might experience minimal aching and discomfort after the surgery. Even though it is not an unbearable pain that will stop you from concentrating on other activities like reading, watching TV, or anything else, it will be there. In order to help you with this, the surgeon will prescribe you painkiller medications to make the experience more bearable. So, you will need to take the medications as prescribed without skipping.

Who can Have Liposuction?

Patients who would like to get rid of the excess fat on their body, that does not go away with diet and exercise can have liposuction. However, there are several factors that make you the ideal candidate for the procedure. Firstly, you need to have a good physical health. Having any health problems might hinder your recovery, which will affect your results.

Another thing that would make you an ideal candidate for liposuction is not having harmful habits. Smoking, consuming alcoholic beverages, or consuming caffeinated drinks excessively might cause complications during and after the surgery. So, you might need to avoid them for a while.

Lastly, having realistic expectations from the surgery is very important. You should be aware that this is a surgery and has limitations. Having unrealistic expectations might lead you to a delusion and may cause you to get disappointed after the procedure.

How Long Does Liposuction Surgery Take?

Depending on how many areas it will address, the liposuction surgery might take up to 3 hours. The procedure’s duration depends on the patient’s anatomy, expectations, the number of areas to be addressed, and the surgeon’s technique.

After the Liposuction Operation

Once the operation is complete, you will be brought to a recovery room where you will be monitored until you are conscious. The anesthesia might make you feel drowsy once you wake up. To help with the swelling, you will be provided a compress garment which you will need to wear for a few weeks. The swelling, soreness and bruising are expected to heal gradually after the operation.

The aim of this article is to give you a general information about the surgical intervention in question. You need to make more research about possible complications and risks of this selected procedure in order to make an informed decision. Please note that complications occur more frequently with patients who are obese, smoke, and have a history or lung or other chronic underlying medical conditions.

Smokers are recognized to have a significantly higher risk of post operative wound healing problems with a subsequently higher potential of infection as well as operative and post operative bleeding. Patients should discontinue smoking for two weeks before and two weeks after surgery. Although it helps to stop smoking before and after surgery, this does not completely eliminate the increased risks resulting from long­ term smoking. Smoking also has a long term adverse effect on the skin and ageing process.
