It can also be called fat removal surgery. Liposuction is a surgical operation that removes fat tissue that cannot be removed by diet and exercise.
In the operation, 1-2 mm incisions are made in the target tissue and thin cannulas with a diameter of 2-3 mm are passed through and the fat tissue melted by various methods is vacuumed and removed from the body.
There are different liposuction applications according to the methods of melting the fat tissue in the body.
Classical Liposuction: Fat tissue is broken down directly by mechanical energy; it is removed from the body with the help of cannulas by breaking down the fat tissue under the skin by hand control.
Laser Liposuction: Fat cells in the target tissue are given a laser beam at a certain wavelength and this energy is held only in the target tissue to allow the fat cells to explode. Laser liposuction is more preferred in tickle and arm areas because it is better in skin tightening. It is not preferred in large fat intake because energy use is limited.
Vaser Liposuction; Ultrasonic sound waves are applied to the fat cells in the target tissue to dissolve the fat cells and the melting fat tissue is removed from the body with the help of cannulas.
Lipomatic (Infrasonic Tickle Liposuction): Lipomatic device called the cannula in the body by applying an egg whipping movement separates fat and connective tissue and pulls away the fat tissue separated from the body at the same time. Since it has a partial tightening effect on the skin and connective tissue, it may be preferred in cases where the skin partially loses its elasticity.

Liposuction Pre-operation How is the examination done?
Appropriate method is determined by drawing
Excess fat accumulation in the body is determined and drawings are made in the areas where fat will be taken. Information is given about the methods and alternatives to be applied by considering the expectations and physical condition of the person and the region to be applied.
Are the results temporary?
Regionally permanent operations
Since the number of fat cells in the region undergoing liposuction will decrease, the effect of the surgery is permanent, but it is not an operation that prevents weight gain. After liposuction surgery, weight gain and tightening of connective tissue and skin in the region by performing regular sports provides a much longer term and efficient operation results.
Is Liposuction Safe?

What is the Difference Between Classical Liposuction and Vaser Liposuction?
Vaser Liposuction is a more comfortable and safer method
The main difference between the two methods is the fat melting method.
- While classical liposuction is mechanical, this ultrasound technology is used in vaser liposuction. Since these ultrasonic sound waves focus only on adipose tissue, they do not damage other tissues and blood vessels, so swelling and bruising are seen less and healing process is much faster.
- Another advantage is that it can be used for fat injection, since it does not damage the fat taken. Skin tightening is also provided in the area where Vaser Liposuction is applied.
Daily Life - Work Life
Daily needs can be met from day one
Movement can be started 4-5 hours after the operation, but in the first days, depending on the operation area, there is a restriction in the movements.
