A sedentary lifestyle produces an increase in obesity and an increased interest in liposuction surgeries, just as it does during COVID-19 pandemic periods. For this, you may wonder what to know about liposuction procedures. Here are the five things you should know about liposuction procedures.
First and foremost, let us define Liposuction. Liposuction is commonly used to improve the shape of the body lines in areas such as the waist, hips, belly, inside of the legs, and jowl. Here are five facts about liposuction that you should be aware of.
1. Liposuction is NOT a cellulite treatment
Liposuction is definitively not a cellulite treatment. The appearance of cellulite will not improve as a result of this procedure. If your skin is not of good quality, the appearance of cellulite most probably will persist after the operation.
2. Liposuction is NOT a weight loss procedure
Seeing liposuction procedures as an alternative to diet and sports to lose weight is one of the most common misconceptions. However, before liposuction procedures, it is stated that you should have a balanced diet and movement pattern to be healthy and to lose excess weight.
3. Liposuction does NOT remove stretch marks
Human skin consists of two layers. On top is a thin layer called the epidermis, and below it is a thick layer called the dermis. Rapid weight gain, drug use, or structural cracks occur in the skin. When the thin skin layer on the top remains intact, cracks or cracks form when the thick elastic layer on the bottom is torn, and a cracked appearance occurs from the outside. With liposuction, the crack formed in that area cannot be treated by removing fat from the bottom. In other words, the cracks that existed before the degreasing process will continue to remain after the process.
4. Liposuction is a body contouring surgery
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure. These surgeries aren’t done to help people lose weight. The removal of five liters of fat from your body does not imply a weight loss of five kilograms. Because the liter’s reflection as a kilo isn’t exactly the same. Liposuction is used to remove regional protrusions or deformities in the body lines.
5. Maintain a healthy diet and exercise after liposuction
After liposuction, the statement “No matter what I do from now on, I’ve already had my fat removed” is not true. Since 80-90% of the fat cells in the liposuction area are removed, there is no easy lubrication in that area. However, it is a fact that the way patients gain weight has changed. While the weight gain of a patient who has liposuction in the waist region does not affect this line much, it may cause lubrication in the hip or belly area. For this reason, it should be kept in mind that people may gain weight again after the operation and experience lubrication problems.
