Liposuction Surgery in İstanbul

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction, which is a very popular body shaping surgery, can be applied to both men and women. People who have fat deposits that resist regular diet and sports in certain parts of their body, especially in the abdomen, hips and thighs, although they are at or close to their ideal weight, are suitable candidates for liposuction. However, since some different factors such as the general health status of the person and skin elasticity affect the decision of liposuction, the suitability for the operation should be given after the evaluations made specifically for the person.

Liposuction is a procedure that can be applied with different techniques. The techniques applied may cause different levels of stiffness and swelling in the patient's body. Compared to the classical liposuction technique, it can be said that the laser liposuction technique will cause less stiffness and swelling.

In order to obtain the most effective results and to experience a fast and healthy recovery process after liposuction, the patient must fully comply with the doctor's recommendations. After the application, it is possible to see swelling and stiffness in the treated area. Swelling in the application area usually lasts for 1-2 weeks. During this period, patients should use compression garments recommended by the doctor, and apply the recommended diet and massage. Thus, it may be possible to reduce the swelling in the area and accelerate the healing process.

Most of the swelling in the application area occurs within 1 to 3 weeks after liposuction surgery. At the end of the first week, patients usually start to feel a little better with each passing day. 1 to 2 weeks after liposuction surgery, swelling in the area turns into hardness, which lasts for an average of 3 months. This stiffness is actually an indication that the treated areas are healing. The stiffness softens over time, excess fluid and swelling go away from the body. Meanwhile, the patient's new figure begins to become more prominent in the mirror.
