Liposuction is the process of removing excess fat under the skin with special tools called cannulae. Liposuction is not a weight loss surgery, it is effective in areas of stubborn fat that do not go away despite weight loss. Although these areas are often the waist, abdomen, hip, thigh, inner part of the knee, liposuction can be performed almost anywhere, such as face-jowl-arms.
How is liposuction done? How does the process proceed?
Special fluids that cause the veins to shrink are given to the fat area. The excess fat is absorbed and removed from the body with the help of a cannula and negative pressure by entering through a small incision made near the same area. Tight corsets should be worn after the procedure and should not be removed for about 4 weeks. One day of hospitalization is sufficient after the procedure performed under general anesthesia.
