The number of fat cells in the adult human body is constant. The number of fat cells does not increase after puberty, but the volume of fat cells increases .This results in weight gain. .Eating habits and lifestyle are the most important factors for people to lose weight.
To get rid of excess weight, proper diet and exercise and a regular lifestyle are essential. However, even in people who meet these conditions, there may be stubborn fat deposits that don’t disappear. Certain areas of the body, such as the abdomen, waist, buttocks, thighs and the outer and inner sides, knees, are diet and exercise-resistant fat deposits . The more fat in these areas is eliminated to some extent by diet and exercise. More exercise and diet may result in deterioration of the overall metabolism of the body instead of thinning in these areas.
What is Liposuction ?
Liposuction is an operation in which fat deposits in certain areas of the body are absorbed with a special vacuum or special injector and removed from the body. It is definitely not a slimming surgery, it is a body contour correction surgery. With this surgery, the volume has increased, while the fat tissue that is resistant to diet and exercise is removed from the body, the number of fat cells is reduced.
In liposuction surgery , the stubborn fat zone is inflated with a special liquid injection. A few stitches are then made on or near this area. Depending on the patient’s condition, 2-6 mm diameter can be called metal tubes are inserted into the subcutaneous layer and the cannulas are connected to the vacuum device through transparent hoses .
The vacuum device is operated, the cannulas are moved at the appropriate depth in the fat accumulation areas and the process of removing excess oils starts. The suction of the fat through the vacuum is the desired body contour and continues until a smooth skin surface is achieved . Ultrasound energy has been used in recent years. In this method, excess fat tissue is fragmented with ultrasound waves, then taken with vacuum in a similar manner.
Liposuction and deep layers of stubborn oils are taken, however, in the last 1 0 years developed in the method called Surface liposuction or liposculpture, which causes contour irregularities can be eliminated fat accumulation .Liposculpture technique has also become a method that gives definite results in the removal of sagging skin and the removal of stubborn cellulite .
The cannula diameters used in the 1970s were quite large and sharp, resulting in serious problems due to the lack of vacuum devices used. The process can cause significant loss of fluid and electrolyte in the body .After this surgery, my life has been lost patients. These problems are left behind today. With the techniques that have been applied for the last 10 years, Iiposuction has taken an indispensable place in body contour correction. The aim is not to weaken, as long as contour correction is performed, in a well-selected patient, with a well-applied technique in hospital conditions, there is no risk if the safety limit is exceeded. Today, the safety limit is accepted as 2,5-4,5 liters in different sources. There are also more fat areas. In this case, the patient’s fluid and electrolyte balance is taken to complete measures, sometimes blood transfusion may be necessary. Morbid obesity, called obesity in patients taking the necessary measures in one session up to 28 liters of fat has become applicable .
Surgery is performed under the supervision of anesthesiologist in the operating room and under the supervision of anesthesiologist under the conditions of hospital .The combination of local anesthesia and sedation (sedation by Vein) is preferred. Only local anesthesia can be applied in very limited areas. The operation takes between 1-5 hours depending on the condition of the areas where the vacuum will be applied. Cannula entry holes are usually not sewn or placed 1-2 stitches. Sometimes thin tubes (Diren) are placed in the areas using cannula holes, which can drain the accumulated serum. Depending on the extent of the operation, it is possible to leave the hospital on the same day or 24 hours later.
After surgery, it usually goes away comfortably. Pain is minimal and can be relieved with medication. At the end of the surgery, special bandage is applied to the vacuum applied areas and special corset is applied to the patient. After the surgery, the patient is dressing. The patient continues to wear corset 5-6 weeks. There may be purple discoloration in vacuum applied areas. Swelling, tingling and burning sensation may be there .They disappear spontaneously within 3 weeks .Surgery and scar scars can also become indistinct within 2-6 months .
