Liposuction is a method used to remove unwanted fat tissues from under the skin. In this process, a thin tubular cannula is used to absorb unwanted fat from the body. In fact, this process is similar to that of vacuuming with a vacuum cleaner. Other names used for this method are Lipoforming, Liposculpting, Body Shaping and Lipoplasty.
The purpose of this technique is not to lose weight but to reduce the amount of fat found in the body in order to provide a more aesthetic appearance in certain parts of the body. In this way, a more proportional overall appearance or more evenly appearing limbs or body regions are obtained. The male gynecomastia problem is usually treated by this method. So, liposuction is definitely not a weight loss method, but a body shaping process. Results appear in the mirror, not as a measure.
Vaser Liposuction is a liposuction method based on the melting of subcutaneous fat by applying different types of energies. The most commonly used energy types are radiofrequency, laser and ultrasound. The aim of these three techniques is the same: the softening or melting of hard fat tissues which makes it easier to absorb them in order to give the body an aesthetic appearance.
The Vaser method mainly uses ultrasound. Fat tissue is treated by thin tubes, similar to those used during the Liposuction treatment to apply the required amount of energy. This softens the fat tissue, which is then removed from the body by Liposuction. This method is extremely effective because a large amount of body fat can be removed. The use of this method is more comfortable for both the surgeon and the patient. The surgeon’s work is facilitated by the softening of the fat, and the patient has less bruising and swelling after the procedure, which enables a shorter recovery time.
Liposuction is performed under general anaesthesia where 2-4 small incisions are placed. The area of the body where the procedure is performed is also anaesthetised during the operation. Therefore, no pain is felt when waking up after the operation. The pain felt after leaving the hospital is like muscle pain after sports and can be relieved with simple painkillers. A corset should be worn about 6 weeks after the operation to speed up and support the healing process. Even if the results appear immediately after the operation, the actual effect can be observed approximately 3 months after the operation.
Liposuction or laser liposuction has no direct effect on weight gain. If the patient gains weight after the procedure, there is no weight gain in the treated areas, but in other parts of the body and the aesthetic appearance is affected again. It is therefore necessary to pay the utmost attention to lifestyle and nutrition after the treatment.
