Fat removal surgery is a surgical procedure to remove persistent fat from certain parts of the body. The other name of this surgery is liposuction.
Fat removal surgery is an effective method for removing fat that cannot be reduced by diet and exercise. The surgery involves sucking fat cells out of the body using a vacuum cannula. The cannula is inserted into certain parts of the body by making small incisions. Then, with the help of a vacuum device, the fat cells are taken through the cannula.
The surgery is usually performed under local or general anesthesia and the duration of the procedure may vary depending on the area to be treated. Fat removal surgery is usually performed in areas such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, waist, back and neck.
Surgery Methods for Fat Removal
Fat removal surgery is a surgical method used to remove excessive fat accumulated in different parts of the body. The most commonly used liposuction surgery methods are:
The vacuum method is a method used in liposuction surgery. Vacuum method for fat removal is performed by the surgeon making a small incision in the specified area or areas, entering the adipose tissue with a special cannula and sucking the fat with the help of a vacuum device. These cannulas are connected to a vacuum device that disintegrates the fat cells under the skin allowing the fat to be collected.
Laser liposuction is a type of liposuction (fat removal) procedure used to reduce excessive fat in the body. In this method, fat cells are broken down using laser energy, and then the dissolved fats are absorbed with the help of a vacuum device.
Laser liposuction procedure allows the surgeon to penetrate under the skin and dissolves the fat tissue using a special laser device. Laser energy heats and breaks up fat cells, facilitating the absorption of fat without damaging the surrounding tissues.
Laser liposuction is considered to be less invasive than other liposuction methods, and the recovery time is usually shorter. In addition, thanks to this method, skin tightening can also be observed.
VASER liposuction is a liposuction method used to reduce excessive fat in the body. In this method, fat cells are disintegrated and then absorbed using a special ultrasonic device.
The VASER liposuction procedure allows the surgeon to penetrate under the skin and to dissolve the fat tissue using a special VASER device. VASER technology facilitates the absorption of fat by breaking down the fat cells in a targeted manner without damaging the surrounding tissues.
VASER liposuction is considered to be less invasive than other liposuction methods, and the recovery time is usually shorter. In addition, thanks to this method, skin tightening can also be observed.
Fat removal by Lipomatic is a method used to reduce excessive fat in the body. In this method, by the help of a special device, the fat cells are disintegrated and then absorbed.
In the Lipomatic fat removal procedure the surgeon places a cannula with a special vibration effect on the determined area and disintegrates the fat tissue by vibrating it. Vibrations break down the membranes of fat cells, making it easier to absorb fat without damaging the surrounding tissues.
Lipomatic liposuction, like other liposuction methods, is a method used to reduce excessive fat. The difference of this method from other methods is that it is less invasive and also results in less pain, swelling and bruising.
Plasma liposuction provides an easier and less invasive disintegration of fat cells by injecting local anesthetic and a type of plasma (a gelatinous substance) under the skin. Then, these disintegrated fat cells are absorbed.
Fat removal surgery should not be used as a surgery for weight loss. This procedure is appropriate for people who want to achieve a better body shape and who are generally in healthy condition. However, patients with any medical condition or who wish to take the necessary precautions to reduce the risks beforehand to surgery should speak to their doctors prior to surgery.
Recovery Period After Fat Removal Surgery
The recovery period after fat removal may vary depending on the treated area, application method and general health status of the patient. However, it is generally recommended that patients rest for a few days after surgery and slowly return to normal activities. Depending on the size of the treated area, full recovery may take several weeks to several months.
In the first days after the operation, pain, swelling, bruising and tenderness may be seen in the treated area. Specialists may prescribe pain relievers or other medications to reduce pain during this period. Wearing a tight-fitting garment (corset) can also reduce swelling.
In the first week after the operation, cleaning and care of the operation area should be carried out as recommended by the doctor. It is also important for patients to ensure that their scars remain clean and dry to reduce the risk of infection.
In addition, strenuous exercises should be avoided during this period. Instead, slow-paced walks or light exercise can be taken. It is also recommended that patients follow a healthy diet and consume sufficient fluids in the postoperative period.
It is important for patients to act and rest in accordance with the doctor’s recommendations in order to accelerate the post-operative recovery process. You can ensure a healthy recovery process by making regular check-ups with your doctor throughout the recovery process.
