Liposuction removes stubborn regional fat, which the person cannot get rid of despite exercise and diet, with the help of a vacuum device and thin cannulas. There are assistive technological devices used for this purpose. The most frequently used of these devices is the Vaser device. The Vaser device helps to protect the veins while breaking the fat in the liposuction area with the help of
sound waves. As there is less bleeding with this method, the patient’s recovery process is faster. Another technology that enables the breakdown of fats, such as the Vaser device, are Laser devices. Laser devices break fat with the help of heat. The fat taken with Vaser liposuction can be used to be injected into other parts of the body. However, using the fat extracted with Laser liposuction for fat injections is incorrect, as its survival rate will be affected due to the heat.
Liposuction is not a weight-loss surgery; it is a body-shaping surgery. Liposuction can be performed on specific areas like under the chin, arms, abdomen, legs, etc. When we speak about “360 Liposuction” specifically, we talk about liposuction applied 360-degrees around the abdomen. In this way, we treat the front of the abdomen, flanks, back, and waist. After the fat taken by the Vaser liposuction method is purified, it can be used to treat the lack of
volume in other parts of the body, as mentioned in Facial Fat Grafting or BBL procedures.
Another technology combined with liposuction surgeries are devices that work with Plasma energy, like Argon Plasma and J Plasma. These devices are used in combination with liposuction to tighten the skin in the treated area, helping us prevent skin sagging that may occur after fat removal.
For this procedure, small incisions are made in discreet locations to allow for the insertion of the liposuction cannulas. After healing, the scars become barely visible.
