People, who want to get rid of excess fat must exercise regular and pay attention to their diet. But in some cases people are not able to get rid of stubborn fat despite regular exercise and diet. In such cases liposuction, in other words fat removal, can be carried out. Liposuction is also called fat absorption.

The liposuction method, which is applied in cases of resistant fat, should not be considered a procedure for weight loss. In the contrary, this method should be considered by people that lost weight but are not able to get rid of excess fat. People, who do not observe their weight, do not exercise and keep an unhealthy diet shouldn’t see liposuction as a means to lose weight.

People Suitable for Liposuction

The following cases are suitable for liposuction:

Women who haven’t given birth yet
People who don’t have a disease that is still treated
People with excess fat accumulation in the body
People who are not able to get rid of fat despite dieting and exercise

How is Liposuction Carried Out?

Liposuction is not only applied to the abdominal region. Liposuction can also be applied to the cheeks, jaw edge, neck, upper part of the arms, hips and inside the knees and ankle areas.

The procedure is carried out under general anesthesia. Prior to liposuction the area to be treated is bloated with a special liquid. After that, thin end hollow cannulas are entered under the skin and the fat is removed from the body by suction. It is possible to extract up to 10 liters of fat during a liposuction procedure. But the patient mustn’t have any diseases. Generally 4 liters are accepted as limit.

Healing Process after the Procedure

After you wake up from the anesthesia after the liposuction procedure, you need to get up and walk in order to prevent possible blood clotting. No heavy work should be performed for 4-6 weeks. Within 10 days the stitches are removed and generally it is possible to resume daily activities in 1 week. The swelling in the body will disappear within 1-2 months after the procedure. If you pay attention to your diet and exercise regularly, you will be able to keep your form for many years. However, pregnancy after liposuction may require a repetition of the procedures.
