Who is suitable for the operation?
Establishing expectations from the surgery. Whether the drugs, vitamins and herbal supplements being used will have any effect during the liposuction operation. Whether alcohol and tobacco use will have any effects Whether there is any effect if there is previous surgery
Before Deciding on the Operation:
It is very important that you have determined your goals for liposuction in consultation with your surgeon. Along with having knowledge about the procedure before liposuction, you should also be clear about the physical and psychological results you expect. You should be prepared to discuss your diet and exercise regimens, your overall health, and any inherited issues that may underlie the cause of the fatty areas you want to disappear. Today, there are many different liposuction techniques. Among these techniques, the most suitable technique for you will be selected by your surgeon according to the condition of the fatty area.
It is very important for the person to have information about the liposuction recommended by the surgeon and to talk with the surgeon about this issue. As in all aesthetic operations, it should be known that the application of liposuction will have some effects on the person. It is necessary to consider the effects of these effects on health both today and in the longer term. In addition to all these, the person should have knowledge about what he can do to maintain the new body shape he will have.
What to Perform by Your Surgeon:
Evaluation of your general health. Evaluate any health condition. Examination of regional fat masses and determination of the areas to be treated. Discussing the possible outcomes of the surgery. Evaluating possible complications that may occur with liposuction and informing the patient about these complications. Informing the patient about the type of anesthesia used and its effects
Determining whether certain medications are needed. How can I best prepare for the operation? Will I need any treatment after the operation? What results can I expect after the operation? What side effects or complications can occur after liposuction? Will I have any discomfort after liposuction? What will the treated area look like in terms of swelling and swelling after the operation? Are there any activities or situations that I should avoid during the recovery process? When can I resume my normal exercise routine after the operation? What other aesthetic procedures can I consider in connection with liposuction? What instructions should I follow after the operation?
What to Expect After the Operation
Many patients can go home on the day of the operation, but depending on the size of the area where the operation is performed, some patients may need to stay in the hospital for 1 or 2 days. The hospital stay may be considered appropriate by the doctor in order to prevent the possibility of fluid accumulation under the skin in the treated area, infection or emergency complications such as excessive swelling and pain.
All dissolvable sutures are absorbed within 10 days. However, if the patient sees that these stitches are embedded or protruding into the skin, the patient should inform the doctor. Using a support, compression bandage or wearing supportive clothing for 6 weeks from the operation helps prevent swelling.
To prevent the risk of thrombosis (blood clot), it may be helpful to take light walks shortly after surgery. Although long-term care liposuction results are satisfactory, it will take some time for your body to adjust itself to its new structure in the first post-operative period.
