Liposuction is a procedure used to remove accumulated fat in certain parts of the body using vacuum technique. It can be applied in many different parts of the body, including thighs, hips, abdomen, chest, waist, upper arm and neck.
What Does The Liposuction Process Contain?
Before liposuction, the surgeon will mark the areas of the person’s body to be treated. How liposuction is performed varies depending on the specific technique used. The surgeon will determine the appropriate method by taking into account factors such as the individual goals of the person, the area of the body to be treated and whether he already had liposuction in the past.
In general, during the procedure, the surgeon makes small incisions on the person’s skin and vacuums the accumulated lubrication using an aspirator with a hollow tube. Depending on the content of the procedure, it can be applied under local or general anesthesia. The surgical team will monitor the patient’s heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen levels throughout the procedure. Liposuction is an outpatient procedure, which means that the person will be discharged on the same day.
Who are the Suitable Candidates for The Liposuction?
Liposuction is not a weight loss method in people with obesity problems. The most suitable candidates are people who have fat problems in certain areas but have relatively normal weight. The process can offer a permanent solution for fats that do not go with diet and exercise. For liposuction, the person should be healthy and have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure. However, each liposuction procedure is specially designed according to the personal needs of the patient.
Some health conditions may prevent patients from becoming liposuction candidates. People with chronic conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure are more likely to achieve less aesthetic results than desired. People who have all kinds of health problems, such as heart or diabetes that put the immune system at risk, may not be suitable candidates for liposuction. Before the procedure, the person will be evaluated on whether he is suitable for the procedure. If the individual has undergone different surgery before, they should wait for the healing process to be completed before deciding on liposuction.
