Liposuction is the process of vacuuming fat from excess fat areas that distort the body shape with the help of thin cannulas. It is used to reduce excess fat in any area of the body where there is fat.
There may be subcutaneous fat accumulation in various parts of our body due to genetic reasons, hormonal reasons and certain amounts of weight gain. It is a surgical method performed to remove resistant fat tissues that do not respond to diet and other weight loss methods in certain parts of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, hips and face, and to better shape the body lines.
“Liposuction is definitely not a weight loss surgery, it’s a body contouring surgery.”
In Which Areas Is Liposuction Often Applied?
On our face, cheeks and under the chin, and on our body, our breasts, around the navel, the sides of the waist, the upper outer and inner parts of the back, upper arms and thighs, and the inner knees are the areas where liposuction is most frequently applied.
While correcting the growth of the breasts, which we call gynecomastia, in men, the belly and waist circumference are the most frequently applied areas, while in women, the waist circumference and hips are the areas where liposuction is most frequently applied.
Vaser (Ultrasonic) Liposuction
With the help of a thin cannula in classical liposuction, a special solution is given to the area where fat will be removed. Thanks to this fluid, the procedure is less bleeding and the operation area is anesthetized. Then, the fat cells that were tried to be liquefied are taken with another cannula.
In laser liposuction, a step is added in between. Fat cells are tried to be melted with a cannula with laser energy at the tip. In Vaser liposuction, on the other hand, the fat cells are tried to be melted with a cannula that emits an ultrasonographic sound wave at the end of the inserted step. Thus, a less bleeding operation can be performed. Since the procedure is more specific to fat cells, the probability of nerves being affected is reduced and the loss of sensation in the post-operative areas is expected to be less. Less edema is expected, which leads to shorter corset use and a faster return to social life.
There are alternatives that can be considered especially for patients who want skin tightening, in the treatment of breast enlargement called gynecomastia in men and in patients who want to have a muscular abdomen appearance by clarifying the lines in front of the abdominal muscles (six-pack surgery), that is, in patients who will undergo liposuction to the arm and jowl area with operations called high-def liposuction. is a preferable alternative.

With the Smart Lipo Triplex laser device, a cannula is sent through a small hole to the area to be lipolysis. By sending laser energy to the tissues in this area, the fat is broken down. The melted fats are taken out in a bloodless way. In other methods, the procedure ends here, while the sagging skin is stretched by throwing a laser under the skin thanks to the 3 different wavelengths of the Smart Lipo Triplex device. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia, depending on the size of the area to be performed. While you can return to your daily life immediately after the procedure, it takes 1-2 months to see the result after the procedure. There is less chance of fat accumulation in the area where the laser lipolysis device is applied. In laser lipolysis application with Smart Lipo Triplex, the vessels in the laser applied area are constricted and the risk of bleeding and embolism is reduced.
