Unable to lose weight despite all efforts is a common problem for most people. Liposuction has been developed for the treatment of resorption-resistant and abnormally located fat deposits despite all regimens and exercises. In the following times, the application area has expanded and it has been used for slimming and correction of body contours, provided that certain rules are not exceeded.
With the effect of some news in the press, liposuction is known as both a magic wand for excess weight and a procedure with deadly results, and it is perceived by people with a lot of question marks.
Liposuction is often performed under sedation or general anesthesia, except in limited situations. Basic logic; The body area that is planned to be thinned is first inflated with a special liquid, this liquid is made ready to be absorbed by inflating the fat cells, and then the fat cells are sucked with the help of special cannulas and negative pressure. The fact that only 1 cm long scars are left on the skin where the cannulas enter, these scars can be hidden and 4-6 liters of fat can be removed from the body in one session make this process extremely attractive. After the procedure, the patient does not need to stay in the hospital and can be discharged after a few hours. The patient can easily return to his daily life within 1-2 days.
Depending on the area of application, the patient should use special corsets or bandages for 6 weeks.
I think that explanation with question titles will be more effective for a clearer understanding of the subject.
Who are suitable patients for liposuction? In fact, liposuction can be applied to people of all age groups for various purposes. The main point here is in which patient groups the liposuction procedure provides satisfactory results. I think the ideal woman is the patient; A patient who has not given birth yet, does not have a disease for which he has to be treated continuously, has no movement disability, has excess fat in areas such as waist, abdomen, hip, hip, inner thigh, knee circumference, under the chin, and cannot get rid of them despite all his efforts. Although the ideal male patient has similar characteristics, the most common fat accumulation area in men is around the waist and belly. In both sexes, being non-smoker has a positive effect on the result.
Does liposuction cause death? It is possible to say both yes and no. Namely; In healthy people who do not have additional risk-enhancing diseases (heart diseases, vascular diseases, cancer, uncontrolled diabetes, diseases that make the patient bedridden), aspirating oil in safe amounts defined in the literature does not pose a greater risk than other surgeries.
However; If the physician aspirates 10-12 liters of oil from a middle-aged patient, who has uncontrolled diabetes or heart disease, who is extremely obese and has limited movement, it will mean ‘heeeyyy! It’s nothing more than an invitation to shout, ‘We’re here!
Can the fat tissue destroyed by liposuction reappear?
Fat cells in the human body continue to divide and increase in number until the end of puberty. However, an adult person has a fixed number of fat cells in their body. As the person gains and loses weight, the number of these cells does not increase, but there is an increase in their volume. Because a fat cell can store fat up to 6-7 times its own volume. Weight loss achieved by many methods such as exercise, diet, cavitation, radiofrequency; this consists of discharging the oil inside the fat cells. Therefore, as soon as we stop the method we use to lose weight, these cells start to store fat again and we regain the weight we lost in 3 months in 3 days. In the liposuction process, the fat cells are directly removed from the body. Imagine you had 10 fat cells in your abdomen. When these were at full capacity (6 times oil storage), they were storing 60 units of oil. You’ve been dieting or exercising and these cells have emptied most of the fat inside them. But you still have 10 fat cells and they can store up to 60 units of fat when you start eating. However, with the liposuction process, you removed 7 of these 10 fat cells. There are 3 fat cells left.
Even if you continue to eat, at worst, you can store up to 18 units of fat. As a result; The liposuction process is not content with getting rid of your unwanted fat deposits, it also significantly reduces the fat storage capacity of that area.
