Belly Liposuction (Removal of Belly Fat)
How Do I Lose Belly Fat With Liposuction?
The liposuction operation is done in Istanbul, Turkey. We bring our patients together with Plastic Surgeons who have a high reference and the highest recommendation rate.
One of the most requested operations among our plastic operations is liposuction. At the top of our patients’ questions is the question, “What can I do to get rid of my stomach?”
Many of us follow diet programs to lose belly fat or do abdominal exercise. But do not lose the belly fat.
In plastic surgery, liposuction is the most successful way to get rid of fat in the abdomen. It removes the fats in the abdominal area and the fat cells using the vacuum method.
How Many Liters of Belly Fat is Removed?
Another question from our patients is how many liters of belly fat is removed with liposuction. The answer to this question is different. Treatment is done based on BMI (Body Mass Index).
If the health and pre-surgery tests are positive, 7 percent of the fat of the body’s weight can be removed. Of course, this doesn’t just cover belly fat. All fat parts can be taken, such as the back, the belly side.
How is Belly Liposuction Done?
The purpose of liposuction is to remove fat and fat cells from the body. While this is happening, plastic surgeons can use a variety of methods and devices. With classic or Vaser liposuction, fat in the abdomen can be best removed.
Gastrointestinal liposuction is done under general anesthesia. The patient does not feel pain during the operation. Before your surgery, your plastic surgeon will determine the areas of your body where fat will be removed and will draw these off. Thin cannulas are connected to the liposuction device in the selected regions. Fats are sucked up with the help of these cannulas.
Abdominal liposuction takes an average of 2 hours. If there are several places where fat will be removed, the operation time will be longer. The patient is awakened after surgery and taken to his / her room.
An after-treatment plan has been drawn up to make the patient feel better.
After liposuction, it is quite familiar for the pain to occur in the areas where fat has been removed. It is advisable to spend the night in the hospital. If the doctor considers it necessary, the patient can stay in the hospital for two nights.
Are Drains Inserted During Belly Liposuction?
Not every patient receives drains for liposuction. Your plastic surgeon will decide this. The preference for drains has increased in liposuction operations.
This is because the control of bleeding in the body is more comfortable, and the fluid is more easily removed from the body. If the drain is put in, it can be removed by the doctor the next day.
What Should Be Paid Attention to After Belly Liposuction?
During the operation, you will wear a corset. Thanks to this corset, the moisture is removed from your body faster. You must wear this corset for the time recommended by your doctor.
It would be best if you took your medicines regularly. Painkillers and antibiotics are on the doctor’s prescription. On the second day of the surgery, you will begin to return to your daily life. After one week, we recommend you to start walking. With light exercises, you can go through this process faster.
Another method we recommend is massage. After liposuction, you can lose the moisture in your body faster with an experienced masseur. The massages also help shape your body.
Will I Gain Weight Again After Liposuction?
Especially after belly liposuction, if you prefer an unhealthy diet and a sedentary lifestyle, it may be possible to gain weight after a long time. For this reason, you should continue your diet and exercise habits.
Fat cells are also removed along with the fat in the abdominal area. It is, of course, challenging to replenish fat in a non-fat cell area. However, excessive and unbalanced eating habits can cause fat to build up into the fat cells left in that area.
