Liposuction (Fat Removal)
Liposuction is a method of removing excess fat tissues in some parts of the body by vacuum method and obtaining smoother body lines. In this way, the fat in the areas where these stubborn fat accumulations occur are removed and a more proportional appearance is given to the body. Contrary to popular belief, liposuction is not a weight loss surgery, it is a contour correction surgery.
The success of surgery in liposuction depends on the elasticity of the patient’s skin, weight and determination of what he / she expects from the surgery. This surgery should not be seen as a miraculous weight loss method. While the volume of fat cells in the body decreases with exercises and strict diets, the number of fat cells does not decrease. In liposuction operations, the number of fat cells decreases by removing fat cells from the body.
What is Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Surgery?
It is possible to see excessive weight gain and loss, hormonal conditions, fat accumulation in the abdominal area after previous pregnancies, sagging of the skin, formation of skin cracks and looseness of the abdominal muscles. In these cases, tummy tuck surgery is applied.
Especially people with abdominal skin sagging and abdominal laxity that do not improve with proper diet and exercise are suitable candidates for tummy tuck surgery. Abdominoplasty should be seen as an abdominal contouring surgery other than losing weight surgery.
Before deciding on tummy tuck surgery, if the patient is overweight, it is recommended to lose weight and fall to the ideal weight. Since the thickness of the abdominal skin is also higher in overweight patients, it is not easy to obtain good results as in normal weight patients. Therefore, firstly diet and exercise are recommended. Patients who come for sagging problems after losing weight with exercise and diet are among the most suitable patient group.
What is Arm and Leg Lift?
It is possible to see sagging and cracks in the arms and legs after excessive weight gain and loss, in cases of sagging caused by a decrease in the elasticity of the skin in older ages, or in cases due to genetic predisposition at an earlier age.
Conditions such as loosening and reduction of the subcutaneous support tissue in the arms and legs, excessive and inappropriate accumulation of adipose tissue may cause the need for this surgery in the arms and legs.
With arm and leg stretching, you can have more tense, younger-looking arms and legs.
What is butt lift (gluteal augmentation)?
There are various techniques in butt lift and lift operations. Fat injection, prosthesis, filling material injection can be used during the procedure. In patients with volume loss, natural prosthesis created from their own body can also be applied. Usually fat is taken from the hip area and given to the butt area.
Butt lift, butt lift surgery can be performed under local or general anesthesia. The operation takes about 2 hours.
In operations with incision, the butt is surgically pulled up and a flap prepared from the body is used. This serves as a natural prosthesis. This method is mostly used in patients of advanced age.
