How Much Weight Can I Lose with Liposuction?
“How many pounds will I lose with liposuction?” Or “How much weight can I lose?” Are the most frequently asked questions to us. Due to the created perception, liposuction is believed to be a slimming method.
It’s not the case.
Liposuction, otherwise called fat removal, is a surgical procedure performed to remove local fat deposits and better balance your body’s contours.
Therefore, liposuction aims not to lose weight but to correct the shape of the body.
How Much Fat is Removed From My Body During Liposuction Surgery?
To answer questions such as how much weight can I lose? or how much fat is removed? First of all, your BMI (Body Mass Index) must be determined following your height and weight. The result is assessed, then other factors are considered.
The most crucial factor is the surgeon’s advice. The number of liters of fat that is removed can be determined after answering a few questions. The maximum fat that can be drawn is 7 percent of the weight. But this may not be suitable for every patient.
The health of the patient is essential and monitored.
The use of medicines, previous operations, and chronic illnesses such as; heart problems, diabetes, and thyroid problems are important diagnoses that need to be investigated.
The surgeons decide following these criteria. Age is also an essential factor. It should be noted that every operation has its risks. The priority during operations is to keep the risks to a minimum.
After all checkups, the doctor examines whether it is possible to remove 7 percent fat from the weight. This is entirely at the discretion of the physician.
Does the Removed Fat Come Back After Liposuction?
The goal of liposuction surgery is to remove body fat and reduce the number of fat cells. After reaching adulthood, the body completes the formation of fat cells. New fat cells no longer form.
With increasing weight, the fats are stored in the fat cells.
If the fat cells are removed here, fat can build up in the fat cells left in this area. The fewer fat cells there are, the less fat is created again. As long as the patient pays attention to his diet after surgery, the chance of fat reforming will be meager.
How is Liposuction Operation Performed?
Regardless of which technique is performed, the purpose of liposuction surgeries is to remove fat from the body. The technique/method is entirely the choice of the physician. Much liposuction surgery is performed under general anesthesia. The patient completes some preparations that require attention before surgery. You can find these preparations in the Surgical Processes section.
The patient is admitted to the hospital 1 to 2 hours before the operation, where a blood test occurs. The anesthetist completes the examination. After all, assessments are completed, the patient will undergo surgery.
The duration of the surgery can vary depending on the number of body parts where fat is removed. The amount of fat in the patient also determines the period of the operation. It can take an average of 2 to 4 hours. This length of time includes taking the patient from the room to the operating room and waking the patient after surgery.
A patient’s operating time removing 2 liters of fat is not the same as a patient removing 7 liters of fat.
The operating time with five body parts liposuction will not be the same as a patient with one body part liposuction.
Liposuction uses thin cannulas (tubes) to suck the fat away.
These tubes are placed through tiny cuts in the skin. The small scars that develop will be barely visible with time. The question, will there be scars after liposuction? It can be answered as NO.
The tubes placed under the skin suck up the fat just like a vacuum cleaner. Whether it is done with a vacuum device or with the surgeon’s physical force, its sole purpose is to suck the fat out of the body.
After the operation, the patient is awakened and then taken to his / her room. The necessary follow-up treatment starts, and the patient stays in it for a day.
What Happens After the Liposuction Surgery?
After liposuction, patients experience pain comparable to the problem that occurs after heavy sports. This pain can vary from person to person. This process is made comfortable with painkillers.
During liposuction, as much fluid is given as the amount of fat removed from the body. These fluids can continue to come out of the holes in the body, especially the first night. This is entirely normal. Don’t be alarmed if the juices coming out are bloody.
A day after surgery, the doctor will visit you and provide detailed information about your latest condition. After the checkups, your discharge from the hospital is complete.
Your final checkups will be done two or three days after surgery. Medicines given during this time should be taken on time, and due care should be taken for a speedy recovery.
After the last check, patients are allowed to return to their country. After a few days, patients should start walking. Light exercise should be exercised. The most crucial thing after liposuction is the massage. Thanks to the massage, the moisture in the body are removed faster. It also has an essential role in the formation of the body.
It takes an average of 5 to 6 months to see the result of Turkey’s liposuction. Sports, massages and healthy nutrition assures you to achieve the desired body shape.
