What is Liposuction?

Liposuction which has been applied for many years in Aesthetic Plastic and Reconstructive surgery , is an operation to redesign the face and body contour by removing excess fat cells from the face and body area. Although liposuction, popularly known as a liposuction procedure , is generally thought of as an aesthetic solution option for regional lubrication problems, it is also a surgical procedure used in the treatment of gynecomastia , which occurs in the form of abnormal growth in breast tissues in men, and lipedema , which is defined as painful lubrication syndrome .

It is not considered a correct approach to associate the regional adiposity problem only with obesity . In normal limits, regional fat deposits can be observed in people with ideal weight, which will disrupt the body proportion. Therefore, it should be noted that liposuction is not a slimming and weight control procedure. The purpose of this application is to remove unwanted stubborn fat from the face and body area.

There may be some areas where body fat is stored and resisted, not only during the processes where weight control is attempted, but also due to genetic factors. Although it varies according to the body structure of the person, the areas where the fats hold tightly can be listed as follows:

  • Tummy
  • Hips and hips
