ABOUT LIPOSUCTION IN TURKEY

.
LIPOSUCTION IS LIPOPLASTY, LIPOSCULPTURE AND SUCTION LIPECTOMY, THE SAFE COSMETIC SURGERY THAT REMOVES UNWANTED OR EXCESS FAT FROM A SPECIFIC AREA OF THE BODY. AN INSTRUMENT CALLED CANNULA IS INSERTED UNDER THE SKIN AND A HIGH PRESSURE VACUUM IS APPLIED TO THE CANNULA TO REMOVE THE UNWANTED FAT. LIPOSUCTION CAN BE PERFORMED ON NEARLY EVERY PART OF THE BODY WHERE THERE IS FAT.
.

.
Liposuction is mainly performed on the body areas as;

  • Abdomen
  • Waistline
  • Hips
  • Buttock
  • Inner / outer thighs
  • Above the knees
  • Upper arms
  • Under the chin
  • Neck
  • Back

Other surgeries can be performed the same time with liposuction types if required as;

Wet Liposuction – small amount of fluid with less volume than the amount of fat, which is going to be removed, is injected into the target area. The fluid helps loosen the fat cells and is suctioned out.

Super-wet Liposuction – this technique uses less liquid than tumescent Liposuction but about the same amount of liquid as fat is removed.

Dry Liposuction – there is no fluid injected before the fat is removed. There is a higher risk of bruising and bleeding than other techniques.

Ultrasound-assisted Liposuction – also known as ultrasonic liposuction, the Cannula is energized with ultrasound. This makes the fat melt away on contact, the ultrasound vibrations burst the walls of the fat cells emulsifying the fat and making it easier for suction. Longer incisions are needed for this technique and there is a risk of skin or internal burns.

Power assisted Liposuction PAS – uses a specialized Cannula with a mechanized system that rapidly moves back and forth allowing the surgeon to pull out fat more easily.

Laser assisted Lipolysis LAL – requires the use of tumescent fluid. A microcannula is inserted through a small incision to deliver laser energy and heat to subcutaneous fat (fat under the skin).

Tumescent Liposuction – several liters of saline solution with local anesthetic lidocaine and vessel-constrictor epinephrine (adrenaline) is pumped subcutaneously (below the skin) in the area that is to be suctioned. The fat is suctioned through small suction tubes called microcannula.
