Liposuction can be defined as a method of regional fat removal body contouring. In a nut shell, it is the process of removing fat tissue from the areas of the body that are seen as excess with special cannulas after applying a special solution prepared under the skin. It is performed under general anesthesia. The patients have to wear corsets suitable for the treated area for at least 3 weeks.
Although there are claims that this procedure increases life risks such as fat embolism, studies have shown that there is no risk difference in terms of embolism with operations performed in similar periods. However, it is still necessary to keep the amount of fat removed at reasonable levels for the health of the patient.
In this respect, it can be said that liposuction is not a slimming method. It is more appropriate for patients to have this surgery for regional fat excesses after they have lost enough weight to have an ideal height-weight ratio (body mass index, BMI). (for example, abdomen, hips, waist sides)
