The number of fat cells in the human body is constant. After puberty, the number of fat cells does not increase, but the volume of fat cells increases . This results in weight gain. Eating habits and lifestyle are the most important factors in people’s weight gain and loss

A proper diet and exercise and a regular lifestyle are essential to get rid of excess weight. However, even in people who meet these conditions, there may be stubborn fat accumulations that do not disappear. Certain areas of the body such as the abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, outer and inner side, knee are areas of fat accumulation that are resistant to diet and exercise. Excess fat in these areas is eliminated to some extent by diet and exercise , more exercise and diet results in deterioration of the overall metabolism of the body instead of thinning in these areas.

what is

Liposuction ?

Lliposuction is an operation in which fat accumulations in certain parts of the body are absorbed with a special vacuum or special injectors, removing fats from the body. It is definitely not a slimming surgery, but a body contour correction surgery. With this surgery, the volume is increased, diet and exercise-resistant adipose tissue is removed from the body, while the number of existing fat cells is reduced

The stubborn lubrication zone inliposuction surgery is inflated with a special injection of fluid. Then several incisions with a length of several mm are made on or near this area. From these incisions, metal pipes called cannulas with a diameter of 2-6 mm are inserted into the subcutaneous layer and the cannulas are connected to the vacuum device with transparent hoses (

Vakum device is activated, the process of removing excess fat begins by moving the cannulas at the appropriate depth in the fat accumulation areas. The process of absorbing fats through vacuum continues until the desired body contour, as well as a smooth skin surface, is provided. In recent years, ultrasound energy has been used. In this method, excess adipose tissues are broken down by ultrasound waves, then similarly vacuumed.

Although excess stubborn fats on deep layers can be removed withliposuction, fat accumulations that cause contour irregularity can also be eliminated by the superficial liposuction or liposculpture method developed in the last 10 years. Liposculpture technique has also become a definitive method of removing skin sagging and eliminating stubborn cellulite (

As the cannula diameters used in the 1970s when the classic liposuction process first appeared, were quite wide and sharp, causing serious problems due to the lack of vacuum devices used. The procedure can cause significant loss of fluids and electrolytes in the body. There have been patients who have lost their lives since this surgery. These problems are behind us today. With the techniques applied for the last 10 years, Iiposuction has taken its indispensable place in body contour correction. As long as the goal is not attenuation, but contour correction, it is an operation in a well-selected patient that does not have any risk if the safety limit is not exceeded, with the technique well applied in hospital conditions. Today, the safety limit is considered to be 2.5-4.5 liters in different sources. There are also those who take more fat. In this case, measures are taken to complete the fluid and electrolyte balance of the patient, sometimes blood transfusions may be necessary. It has become feasible to take up to 28 liters of fat in a single session by taking the necessary precautions in patients with excessive obesity called morbid obesity .


Ameliation is performed in the operating room under hospital conditions and under the supervision of an anesthesiologist. The combination of local anesthesia and sedation (intravenous sedation) is preferred. Only local anesthesia can be applied in very limited small areas. The operation lasts between 1-5 hours depending on the condition of the areas to be vacuumed. Cannula entrance holes are usually not erected or 1-2 stitches are put. Sometimes special thin pipes (resist) are placed in the areas using cannula holes, which helps to drain the serum accumulated inside. Depending on the width of the surgery, it is possible to leave the hospital on the same day or after 24 hours

It’s usually comfortable after surgery. The pain is quite small and can be eliminated with medications. At the end of the operation, special bandages are applied to the vacuumed areas and the patient is dressed in a special corset. After the operation, the patient is dressing. The patient continues to wear a corset for 5-6 weeks. There may be purpleish color changes in vacuum-applied areas. There may be swelling, tingling and burning sensation. These disappear spontaneously within 3 weeks. Surgical scars become vague within 2-6 months (
