Liposuction – Reshaping Your Body
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty or fat removal surgery, is a surgical procedure designed to remove stubborn fat deposits from specific areas of the body. It is not a weight-loss method but rather a contouring procedure to achieve more proportional body contours. Liposuction can effectively target areas such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, back, and neck.
Suitable Candidates for Liposuction Surgery
Ideal candidates for liposuction surgery are individuals who have localized areas of excess fat that have been resistant to diet and exercise. Candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure. Liposuction is not suitable for individuals seeking significant weight loss or as a treatment for obesity.
Pre-surgery Considerations for Liposuction
Before undergoing liposuction surgery at Egemed Hospital, it is essential to have a thorough consultation with our experienced plastic surgeons. During this consultation, your medical history, current medications, and aesthetic goals will be discussed. The surgeon will evaluate your body’s specific areas of concern to determine if liposuction is the appropriate procedure to achieve your desired results.
Duration of Liposuction Surgery
The duration of liposuction surgery varies depending on the amount of fat to be removed and the number of areas treated. Generally, the procedure can take anywhere from one to several hours. Our skilled surgeons at Egemed Hospital will discuss the estimated surgery time during your consultation.
Risks of Liposuction Surgery
Liposuction is generally considered a safe procedure when performed by experienced surgeons. However, as with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved. Potential risks of liposuction include infection, bleeding, fluid accumulation, contour irregularities, changes in skin sensation, and scarring. Choosing a qualified surgeon and following post-operative care instructions can minimize these risks.
Different Liposuction Techniques – Laser Liposuction / Vaser (Ultrasonic) Liposuction / Lipomatic
At Egemed Hospital, we offer various liposuction techniques, including:
1. Laser liposuction: Uses laser energy to liquefy fat before removal, making it easier to extract.
2. Vaser (ultrasonic) liposuction: Utilizes ultrasonic waves to break down fat cells for gentler fat removal.
3. Lipomatic: Involves using a vibrating cannula to dislodge and remove fat with precision.
Anesthesia Options in Liposuction Surgery
Liposuction surgery is typically performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the procedure and your surgeon’s preference. Your anesthesia will be administered and monitored by a qualified anesthesiologist to ensure your safety and comfort during the surgery.
Recovery Process After Liposuction Surgery
The recovery period following liposuction varies for each individual. You may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated areas. Our surgeons at Egemed Hospital will provide detailed post-operative instructions, including wearing compression garments to support healing and reduce swelling. Most patients can resume light activities within a few days, but it may take several weeks to fully recover and see the final results.
Traces After Liposuction Surgery
Scarring from liposuction is minimal as the incisions are typically small. The scars will fade over time and become less noticeable. Our skilled surgeons place incisions strategically to ensure the best aesthetic outcome.
Areas of Application for Liposuction Surgery
Liposuction can be applied to various areas of the body to target localized fat deposits. Common treatment areas include the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, back, and neck. During your consultation at Egemed Hospital, your surgeon will discuss the areas that can be treated to achieve your desired body contour.
Results of Liposuction Surgery
You will notice initial improvements in the treated areas shortly after the surgery. However, it may take several months for the full results to become visible as swelling subsides and the body settles into its new contours. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a balanced diet will help ensure long-lasting results.
Post-surgery Fat Accumulation
After liposuction surgery, fat cells are permanently removed from the treated areas. However, it is essential to maintain a stable weight to prevent fat accumulation in other areas of the body. Weight gain after liposuction may lead to a change in body proportions.
Pricing for Liposuction Surgery
The cost of liposuction surgery varies depending on factors such as the extent of the procedure, the number of areas treated, and the surgeon’s expertise. At Egemed Hospital, we provide a detailed cost estimate during your consultation, including all associated fees.
