Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgery in which fat deposits in specific areas of the body are removed by suction using special vacuum or special injectors. It is a surgery aimed at correcting body features and it is definitely not a weight loss surgery. By this surgery, fat tissue with increased volume which is resistant against diet and exercise is removed from the body as well as number of existing fat cells is reduced.

Ultrasound energy has begun to be exploited in recent years. In this method, the excess fat tissues are crushed by ultrasonic waves, then removed by vacuum in a similar manner.

It has become possible to remove accumulated fat in many areas of the body, including jowls, cheeks, neck , inner side of upper arms, breasts, chest, abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, inner side of knees, behind the legs using vacuum.

Maximum 4-5 liters of fat can be removed without disturbing balance and body functions of the patient. But some people remove more by giving fluids and blood. This depends on the surgeon's preference. In patients with large areas, surgery can be performed once every 3-6 months. In the case of obesity called morbid obesity, it has become possible to remove fat up to 28 liters in a single session by taking necessary precautions in patients.
