Liposuction is the method of obtaining fat body tissues which are more in some parts of the body by vacuum method and obtaining more smooth body lines.
In this way, the stubborn fat accumulation in the region by taking the body fat is given a more proportionate appearance. Contrary to what is known , liposuction is not a slimming operation, it is a contour correction surgery.
The success of surgery in liposuction depends on the elasticity, weight and determination of the patient's skin. This surgery should not be seen as a miraculous slimming method. Exercises and strict diets do not decrease the volume of fat cells in the body, while the number of fat cells does not decrease. In liposuction surgery, the number of fat cells decreases by removing fat cells from the body.

It is possible to return to work within 2-3 days.Swelling and bruises may occur in the postoperative period. It usually improves in 2 weeks. However, all the swelling in the surgical site descends and the final shape of the site takes about 6-12 months. During this period, massage and some other treatments can be applied for support purposes. It is appropriate to use a corset for 1 month after the operation in order to give an effective result. It is useful to pay attention to diet and exercise in the postoperative period.

However, in the case of this weight gain, the areas where liposuction has been made and the regions that have not been made will gain weight proportionally.
