What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction means extraction of the fat from the body by the definition. Surgery is the procedure of taking out the fat tissues from specific areas. Procedure is operated with the help of a special vacuum or special injectors. The operation is done by Plastic surgeons and it is classified as a body contouring. It shouldn’t be considered as a weight loss surgery. The surgery aims to remove fat tissues that become excessive and resistant to diet or exercise. Amount of fat tissues get lower as an outcome of the surgery.

A large spectrum of body parts are commonly preferred for liposuction. Facial ones are chin, cheeks and neck area. Internal arm side, breasts, chest, abdominal area are the popular upper body parts for procedure. Buttock, knee rear, back of the legs are popular lower body parts for operating.

How is Fat Extraction Performed?

Wet and dry techniques can be used for fat extraction. Tiny cannulas with 1-5 mm diameters is used to extract the excessive body during surgery. 4-5 kg of fat is accepted as the highest limit of extraction. Total amount of fat removal shouldn’t exceed the mentioned that. A good candidate for liposuction should be on a healthy diet. People who exercise regularly have a higher chance of a better result after surgery. Rare weight fluctuations also signs to have better results after surgery. Skin elasticity and the body weight before liposuction are also important success factors. Fat removal is a “silhouette contouring” operation.

What are the Fat Removal Techniques?

Ultrasound energy is used to shred the fat layer and then cannulas are used to remove homogeneous fat tissues. Loose skin is tightened by the cannulas after removal procedure. Vaser liposuction is an FDA validated technique which is especially useful for patients who already has low fat layer under their skin.

Laser beam is applied to under-skin fat layer to heat the tissues then heated homogenous tissues are extracted with the help of the cannulas. The minimal invasive method is FDA approved and healing time is generally shorter compared to traditional liposuction procedure. The loose skin that will appear after the fat removal, is tightened with the laser afterwards.

Lipomatic liposuction technique is done by using a specific cannula which uses vibrations to shred fat layer under the skin. Small incisions on the skin is used to drain the fat tissues with vibrating cannulas. No heat is applied to under the patient’s skin.

What Should Be Taken into Consideration after Surgery?

  • Corset usage is important to avoid looseness of the skin after the procedure. Corset also helps to reduce the edema. Average time of corset usage is 3 weeks but it may differ according to body type.
  • There may be some swelling and/or bruising after liposuction but it is expected to go away after 3-4 weeks. Body is expected to be fully settled after 3-4 months.
  • Patients should pay attention to continue a healthy diet and exercise routine after the surgery. Continuing a healthy life style will help not to regain unwanted fat tissues.

Liposuction prices vary for each country. Average cost for a vaser-lipo in UK is in the region of 6.000 to 8.000 £. Prices may go up to over 12.000 £ according to surgeon’s experience and facility qualifications. Fat extraction cost in Germany is seen at a close range with UK which are approximately around 5.500 € to 7.000 €. Liposuction in Turkey has become quite popular in recent years.

This price may go up or down according to surgeon and facilities’ capabilities.
