Not every weight problem is linked to obesity. Excess weight may pile up in certain body parts because of fat cells. Diet and exercise may not help to lose excess fat. Naturally, this can cause you to be unhappy with your physical appearance. Liposuction is a solid option to eliminate such a problem.
On the other hand, laser liposuction (smart lipo) is an alternative to traditional procedure as it removes fat and tightens the skin by melting the fat.
The most commonly operated parts of the body are the hip, abdomen, buttocks, arm, or neck.
At Istanbul Med Assist, the cost of procedures that we mediate conventional liposuction, laser, and Vaser liposuction is very reasonable, considering the remarkable results.
Why is liposuction done?
Liposuction is effective for losing weight that does not respond to diet and exercise. However, patients who are overweight or obese should prefer diet and exercise or weight loss surgery.
Some body parts are relatively more prone to fat accumulation. Surgeons apply this intervention to the abdomen, upper arm, butt, ankle, hips, chin, neck, chest, and back.
Additionally, this procedure is helpful in breast reduction or gynecomastia procedures. Also, it can remove the problems in the skin resulting from bariatric surgery.
Surgeons mark the areas where they will perform liposuction. You may take photographs to make a Before-After comparison later.
Your surgeon determines the type of anesthesia according to the width of the area.
General anesthesia is essential for large areas. For a small area, local anesthesia is enough. If you feel pain in local anesthesia, you should tell your surgeon. Thus, they can apply sedatives via IV.
The removable fat amount determines the duration of the liposuction procedure. The number of areas is an important factor too. As a result, it may take several hours.
Naturally, bruising and swelling will happen. There will be numbness in the surgery area for 6-8 weeks. Also, doctors may leave the incisions open to allow the fluid flow to continue.
You need to wear tight clothing for several weeks to relieve swelling.
After a few weeks, the swelling will begin to go down. Operating areas will start to look smaller every day. After a few months, the same regions will appear thinner.
Although your fat is permanently removed, it may return because of inactivity and a bad diet. Therefore, maintaining the benefits of the procedure depends on your lifestyle. If you exercise regularly and eat well, you can preserve liposuction results, even in the advanced stages of aging.
