Stubborn Oils

Liposuction is a plastic surgery operation that allows the removal of subcutaneous fat tissues collected in certain areas of the body by means of a vacuum and cannulas. During adolescence, our subcutaneous fat cell count reaches its maximum level and mostly remains at this number. The distribution of fat cells in our body and how many fat cells there will be in which region is usually determined structurally. As we gain or lose weight, our number of fat cells does not change, but the amount of fat stored in our fat cells increases or decreases. The fat cell can store up to 90% of its volume and grow 1000 times in volume. This increase in subcutaneous fat cell volume appears as bodily enlargement. Fat accumulation is common especially in the armpits, upper arms, anterior abdominal wall, waist, hips, inner and outer thighs, above the kneecap and ankle areas. With liposuction, the amount of regional fat cells is reduced. The procedure can be performed under general anesthesia or, in selected patients, with sedation or local anesthesia depending on the region. By making small incisions of approximately 1 cm, regional fat cells are separated and absorbed with the help of special cannulas. The methods used today allow to take a large amount of oil. Suitable candidates for this surgery are people with normal body weight but excess fat in certain areas and good skin elasticity. Suitable areas for liposuction are the neck, sides of the breasts, arms, abdomen, back and upper legs. This is not a weight loss surgery. It is a surgical method to remove fat accumulations that do not respond to diet and other weight loss methods and to improve body contours. In this surgery, there are no scars other than the entrance holes of special cannulas. Since the amount of regional fat cells decreases, the old fullness does not occur in this region. After the operation, special corsets are worn for an average of 4-6 weeks.
