LIPOSUCTION IN TURKEY
Liposuction, also referred to as lipoplasty and suction lipectomy, is a plastic surgery procedure that removes excess or unwanted fat in order to sculpt the body and improve the body shape. Liposuction can be ideal for improving areas of the body that have not responded to diet and exercise, including the abdomen, buttocks, cheeks, chin, hips, knees, neck, thighs, upper arms, and waist. The result is a slimmer, smoother, more contoured body shape.
Liposuction is the most commonly performed cosmetic surgical procedure in Turkey and one of the most popular procedures performed at Get Well Healthcare by the best surgeons in Istanbul, Turkey.
Liposuction in Turkey is the standard method to produce permanent spot reduction and contour improvement in areas affected by excess fatty deposits. Your fat cells are distributed throughout your body early in life, as determined by your genetics. Fat cells cannot migrate or multiply, and once they are removed, they cannot come back. Therefore, any contour improvement achieved with liposuction is a permanent improvement and will persist, even if a patient gains weight.
This treatment is not, however, an appropriate method for achieving weight loss, although it can, and often does, help motivate patients to improve their diet and exercise patterns post operatively.
This is the default type of liposuction and the oldest kind as well. In this type of liposuction, small incisions are made over the area to be suctioned. A hollow needle, called a cannula, is inserted through these incisions to suction out fat cells.
The recovery time for this procedure can be 1-3 months, depending on the extent of the procedure and how you heal. In addition, it can take three to six months for your shape to become final. However, most people in lipo recovery are able to return to their normal duties after just a few days.
This type of lipo can be used in a variety of areas of the body, including the bottom, thighs, legs, abdomen, back, and arms. Most people do not use it for small areas, such as under their chin, because it is one of the less precise types of liposuction.
The main advantage of this type of liposuction is that it is the least pricey type of liposuction. In addition, it has been used for a long time and is a “tried and true” procedure that many physicians can perform.
There are several suction lipo disadvantages as well. First, it causes more bleeding and bruising than any other type of liposuction. Second, it is harder to control fat removal, so there is a higher rate of lumpiness, dimpling, and other imperfections. People often have to have several treatments in order to get the results that they want with this type of liposuction. One of the major lipo disadvantages is that many people require general anesthesia in order to go through it. Although the newer types of liposuction usually can be done with just local anesthesia, many patients have to be put under general anesthesia for this type. This introduces a new range of potential complications and side effects.
Tumescent means “swollen.” Tumescent liposuction is similar to traditional liposuction except that lidocaine and epinephrine are used to make fat swollen and thus easier to identify and remove. Lidocaine is a powerful anesthetic and also can cause minor swelling in fat cells. In addition, epinephrine is usually added because this constricts blood vessels and can dramatically reduce bleeding.
An anesthetic is injected into pockets of fat, which makes them swell. A small needle called a cannula attached to a suction device is then used to remove fat cells. Tumescent liposuction can be used on almost any part of the body that commonly receives liposuction. Most of the swelling and pain from this procedure will be gone in about a month. However, as with normal lipo it can take 3-6 months to see your final, newly trim shape. One of the main tumescent lipo advantages is that it does not cause as much bleeding and bruising. In addition, it is one of the cheaper options available for fat removal. This is generally considered the gold standard in liposuction procedures. However, it lacks some of technological enhancements and advantages of other methods.
Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction UAL
Ultrasound has been around for about 40 years. Although it is often used as a means of imaging, it also can be a treatment.
Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves that can create high amounts of energy in tissues where it is focused. This can dissolve fat cells, which makes it easier to remove using suction. Ultrasound-assisted liposuction is often used in areas of tougher fat, such as in the male chest, on the back, in ‘saddlebags’, and in other areas where traditional liposuction may be difficult. The recovery is similar to tumescent liposuction, although people may experience occasional blistering or burns. One of the key advantages of ultrasound-assisted liposuction is that is can more quickly remove fibrous or otherwise stubborn fat that otherwise might require several treatments. In addition, a larger volume of fat can be safely removed using this type of liposuction since it is liquified and less likely to bruise or bleed.
There are also a few disadvantages. Because ultrasound does produce high energy rays, there is a higher chance of developing blisters and burns. There is also a higher chance of numbness and of developing small blood clots. Nonetheless, many people feel that this type of liposuction is the right choice for them, particularly if they have fat that is fibrous or otherwise more likely to be stubborn.
Laser Assisted Liposuction LAL
Laser-assisted liposuction is similar to ultrasound-assisted liposuction except that it uses a laser to break down fat. In this type of procedure, a laser probe is inserted through the suction cannula. Anesthetic and epinephrine are then injected into the area to control pain and bleeding. The plastic surgeon then makes several tiny cuts and inserts the cannula and laser probe. Lasers break down fat very efficiently so it can be removed as a liquid oil through the cannula. Any liquefied fat that is not suctioned is then absorbed by the body. Like ultrasound-assisted liposuction, it has a recovery time of about one month. There are several advantages to this kind of fat removal. First, the laser fiber is extremely small and only a tiny cannula is needed to suction the liquefied fat. As a result, this type of lipo requires only very small incisions that heal quickly and without a scar.
In addition, lasers are very small and easy to control, which means that this type of liposuction can be extremely precise. Your surgeon will be able to fine-tune and give you the natural and beautiful shape that you desire. Another advantage is that this method is fine enough that it can be used anywhere on the body, even unusual areas such as the face. Last, lasers also tighten the skin, so many people who get this procedure find that their skin is firmer and more youthful in addition to losing fat. In addition to the advantages, there are disadvantages as well. Recovery times can be longer, with many people requiring pain relievers for several weeks and taking 6 weeks or more to assume their final shape. In addition, there is a rare but present risk of burns because lasers create heat and are extremely powerful.
Smart Liposuction or SmartLipo
SmartLipo is a type of liposuction that uses lasers. However, it is different from traditional laser- assisted liposuction because it uses two distinctive frequencies. One is used to liquefy fat in areas where sculpting is needed. The other wavelength is one that is known to tighten tissues and skin in the area, as well as stimulating collagen production. SmartLipo is a type of liposuction that uses lasers. However, it is different from traditional laser- assisted liposuction because it uses two distinctive frequencies. One is used to liquefy fat in areas where sculpting is needed. The other wavelength is one that is known to tighten tissues and skin in the area, as well as stimulating collagen production. This specialized type of laser liposuction has several distinct advantages. First, it tightens skin more than any other method, whereas other types of liposuction can leave people with loose or sagging skin. Second, it is much faster. One treatment is sufficient for many people, and the recovery time can be as short as just a few days.
Smart Lipo is the most precise type of liposuction on the market. This is one of the main Smart Lipo advantages. People can get sculpting in any area of their body, even in the face, and expect a tight and smooth result. In addition, it has the shortest recovery time of any type of liposuction. The Smart Lipo recovery time is so short that many people only miss one to two days of work. However, there are similar lipo disadvantages to those seen in laser liposuction. As with all procedures, there are potential risks and side effects. Lasers use a great deal of heat so there is always a risk of burns or blistering. However, a skilled plastic surgeon knows how to use the equipment so this risk will be minimal.
