Service Details


Liposuction also called lipectomy or lipoplasty is a type of cosmetic surgery that removes fat from under the skin. The procedure is not a weight-loss method and does not remove fat from other parts of the body, such as visceral fat around the organs. Liposuction changes the shape of certain areas of the body by removing fat from those areas. It is most commonly used for the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, arms, neck and under the chin, but also for the back, inner knee, chest, cheek, calves and ankles. Some people have liposuction at the same time as other cosmetic surgery procedures such as a facelift, a breast augmentation or an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). Liposuction generally consists of aspirating and removing fatty tissue, made more fluid by various methods, through 1 to 2 mm incisions, using long, fine cannulas with a diameter of 2 to 3 mm.

Who Can Benefit From Liposuction?

As with any surgical operation, specialist medical advice is required for this procedure. Liposuction is not a weight loss method, but rather a method of achieving regional slimming and smoother body contours. If you have a weight problem other than significant fat accumulation, it would be more appropriate to get rid of your excess weight by applying a controlled diet and sports program, and then apply this method to excess fat that can’t be resolved by diet. Liposuction is a method that can be applied to anyone who has no systemic health problems, is not pregnant and has not recently given birth. However, before indicating the application of the method to people with systemic health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, etc., a number of tests must be carried out to determine the risk factors and the necessary precautions must be taken to avoid putting patients’ lives at risk. Although age is not a barrier to this application, it cannot be applied to some elderly patients due to age-related loss of skin elasticity.

What Is The Recovery Period After Liposuction?

After the operation, personalized corsets must be used. These corsets are used for approximately 4 to 8 weeks, depending on the amount of adipose tissue removed and the individual’s characteristics. Swelling and bruising are to be expected and will disappear over time. One week after the operation, the stitches are removed and after one to three weeks, the patient can return to work and daily life if there are no general health problems. Normal exercise can be resumed 3 to 4 weeks after the application.

Can Liposuction Be Performed On Sagging Skin?

It’s important to remember that just because you’ve received this application, it doesn’t mean you won’t put on weight again. To keep the weight off, it is very important to pay attention to lifestyle, diet and exercise after the operation. If weight is gained and lost frequently, the application will not be successful. If there is sagging skin in addition to excess fat, the existing sagging cannot be recovered with this method. The sagging of the abdominal wall observed in women who have given birth can’t be eliminated by liposuction. So, liposuction can’t get rid of cellulite.

What Is Laser Liposuction?

Laser liposuction, also known as laser lipolysis, is a method of directly destroying fat cell membranes using a diode laser. Like liposuction methods, laser liposuction is also used effectively to get rid of excess regional fat, particularly in areas where there is skin laxity, such as under the chin and the facial area. Laser liposuction of the armpits can also help prevent excessive sweating in people with perspiration problems.
