Liposuction (fat removal with vacuum) is the surgery of removing regionally accumulated excess fat by vacuum. It is used in reducing, removing the excess fat in any area of the body containing excessive fat. It is an excellent method for regional slimming, maybe the best known in practice; but it is not a weight loss procedure. In any case fat removal surgery should not be used for weight lost procedures.
What to Consider Before Liposuction Surgery?
If you are planning to undergo liposuction surgery , the first step you should take is to consult an aesthetic plastic surgeon. Keeping in mind that the desired result is correction, not perfection, the patient should openly discuss their expectations about looking, feeling good and results after liposuction.
Liposuction can improve your appearance and problem, but the results will be unique to you. Plastic surgery can change your appearance and restore the confidence in yourself, but it will not change you tottally.
Fat removal is not a method that can replace weight loss with diet and excercise, also not a solution for obesity. Liposuction is an ideal surgical technique for suitable patients. Your plastic surgeon may recommend abdominoplasty , a tummy tuck surgery, an operation in which the skin and fat tissue are removed together.
"Fat removal surgery gives excellent results in people with good skin elasticity, only have regional excessive fat, without excessive sagging and looseness of the skin". Fat removal surgery permanently reduces fat receptors along with fat cells. This is why liposuction is permanent for life. While planning the surgery, it is important to evaluate the whole area and give the exact decision where the liposuction will be performed.
Patients can request to see the before and after photos of the liposuction surgeries performed before the surgery. In this way, there will be no question mark in their minds.
How Much Fat Can Be Removed By Liposuction?
Although it varies from person to person, weight and the number of areas, a maximum of 7-8 liters of fat should be taken in a liposuction surgery.
While 5 liters may be a maximum amount for a 50 kg person, 6-7 liters can be easily taken from a 100 kg man. Therefore, the amount to be taken is unique to every patient.
Again, there is no rule that the maximum amount will be taken in every patient. For example, 2-3 liters of fat from your stomach can be enough, and this will be even better than when you lost 20-25 kg. Some problems may occur if liposuction surgery is excessively performed as a weight loss procedure.
Liposuction Surgery Methods
Fat removal can be done in 4 different ways
1- Dry technique

Liposuction is frequently performed with superwet and tumescent techniques. By injecting liquid and medications in the body with these methods, it is provided not to be cases like pain and it is provided the fatty tissues to be removed more easily. The liposuction surgery is applied often with sedation anesthesia and outpatient surgery according to the size of the area in which fat is removed.
Liposuction is often performed with super wet and tumescent techniques. With these methods the fat cells are removed much more easier and also it prevents bleeding and pain.
Liposuction surgery is often performed as outpatient or 1 night hospitalisation with sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the amount of fat to be taken.
If general anesthesia is used, you will sleep during the entire operation. Depending on the extent of the liposuction surgery, the procedure can take from 45 minutes to 3-4 hours or even longer. The surgery starts with very small incisions of about 0.3 cm made in the area where liposuction will be done. The incisions will not leave any scar.
After liposuction, special corsets are worn to ensure better adhesion of the treated areas to the underlying tissue, to prevent swelling, and to prevent fluid accumulation.

Numbness, swelling, mild pain may continue for a while. Swelling and bruising may occur in the surgical field, depending on the tightness or looseness of your skin. The swelling and bruising reaches its max level in 5-6 days and will begin to decrease after about 1 week.

There may be some stiffness under the skin after 1 month, and these stiffness will improve in an average of 3 months. After 6 months, you will be able to see your final result.
If there are surface defects such as ripples, bumps, orange peel appearance, which are usually called "cellulite" before liposuction, they will decrease, but not completely disappear after liposuction.

Especially when the deepening of the line from the groin to the waist is done together with abdominal muscle aesthetics, it creates a more balanced and harmonious result.
There are cases where hi def lipo is usually performed together or separately with six pack abdominal aesthetics. Adding more definition to the back line, creating the border of the latissimus dorsi muscle, sculpting the waist line are high definition procedures in this region.
This procedure is especially suitable for men. High definition liposuction is performed to reveal the pectoral muscle line, to eliminate the excess on the sides, and to define the pectoral muscle.
If the patient has gynecomastia, it should be corrected with liposuction. In order to look much musculen, fat can be injected under the pectoral muscle in the upper pole, making the muscle appear more hypertrophic.
For hi def liposuction in this region; the process of sculpting the deltoid muscle, defining the muscle transition line, removing excess fat in the arms, and removing the borders of the biceps and triceps muscles are performed. The deltoid muscle can be enlarged by injecting fat for more hypertrophy.
Thigh high def liposculpture procedure is done more rarely. It is especially used to highlight the muscle lines on the upper part of the thigh.
