Everyone regardless of their age, or gender might want to give their bodies a makeover or contour from time to time. Liposuction in Turkey is a great alternative for those who wish to achieve this. In the liposuction procedure, stubborn fat deposits are removed from the body, leaving the shape slimmer, contoured, and more emphasised. Liposuction, however, should not be considered a weight-loss alternative. It can only support the end result of the weight loss journey to correct any imperfections one wishes to change. Yet slimming will be visible on stomach liposuction before and after photos or arm liposuction before and after shots. Even though it is mostly considered an aesthetic procedure, liposuction is only a supporting fat removal surgery that is useful for gynecomastia, gigantomastia, and many other surgeries with reconstructive purposes.
As it is not a weight loss alternative, it works great with people who are in a healthy weight range. It works the best when stubborn fat is targeted in a specific area as in armpit fat removal. Some other common examples might be chin liposuction, and arm liposuction while face liposuction and neck liposuction are also preferred by many. The most predominant one for women however is stomach liposuction. This type of liposuction helps get rid of stubborn or genetically inherited tummy fat and might be accompanied by thigh liposuction as well. Liposuction as you can see can be applied to a great variety of areas on our bodies and is suitable for anyone regardless of their gender therefore liposuction for men is also a common procedure as much as it is for women.
As with many other cosmetic procedures, liposuction has various types and it can be a rather individual process. Therefore, your doctor will guide you on the best alternatives for your unique body type after a thorough examination. They will take liposuction before and after photos to show you the effect of the procedure. Before you get there, it is always useful to have some prior knowledge about the procedure and what you can expect. A good start would be knowing the types of liposuction;
- Tumescent liposuction is the most common liposuction type. The process includes the injection of a sterile solution that dissolves fat pads. It is possible to experience stiffness and swelling after the procedure. Then the surgeon implements small incisions onto the area to insert the tube which is also known as a cannula. With the help of this tube, excess fat is removed from the body through suction.
- Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) is sometimes used as a supporting method in addition to tumescent liposuction. The process involves a surgeon inserting a metal device that produces ultrasound energy under the skin. This energy then fractures the fat cells under the skin and dissolves them eventually. A newer generation of this type of procedure is called vaser liposuction. With this new and more advanced technique, skin injuries are minimised while the body is also contoured.
- Laser liposuction (LAL) is a laser lipo that uses a high-intensity laser to rupture fat cells under the skin. A small incision or cut is made onto the skin to insert the cannula where the laser would reach the fat cells under the skin.
- Power-assisted liposuction (PAL) requires the tube to move in a back-and-forth motion to extract the fat even faster. The vibration created in the meantime helps surgeons to remove fat more effectively and faster. This process is mostly preferred when the amount of that to be removed is a lot.
Needless to say, technology constantly keeps advancing at full steam. The cosmetic industry is also developing synchronically. Every day a new technique is being developed to address the needs faster, more effective, and more advanced. Smart lipo being replaced by slim lipo, vaser lipo, non invasive lipo are only some of those examples. As Vanity, we are here to help you find the best and most effective solution for you.
