Information about the procedure

Liposculpture surgery is a contour reshaping operation that is constantly confused with liposuction surgery but these two processes require different types of techniques to be performed. Liposuction means fat suction; and it is a surgical procedure to remove unwanted fat cells, liposculpture is not intended to act as a weight loss solution, its intention is to remove whole fat cells from problem areas and transfer back to desired areas to contour your physique for a more pleasing shape.

Doctor B performs Liposculpture applications using the Lipomatic device. This raises the level of the operation to an advanced level. Liposculpture operation involves the removal of fat from different parts of the body; including the back, waist, belly, inner thighs, hips, inner parts of the knees, and jowl, using a vacuum. During the fat removal process, reshaping is performed. Liposculpture can be performed as a stand-alone procedure or included in a set of aesthetic surgical procedures as a contributor. The vibrating head at the tip of the device and the design of the device, enabling the surgeon to maneuver easily and allows to achieve unique contouring outcomes. It is a significantly safe technique as the device stops automatically when it encounters a vessel.

Ideal candidates for Liposculpture

The suitable candidates for liposculpture are those; who have fat deposits in certain areas of their bodies, who cannot resolve these regional fat deposits with diet and exercise, and who have realistic expectations.

Liposculpture is a more refined form of liposuction. It is a more advantageous contouring and fat removal procedure both for the surgeon and the patient.

At the beginning of the liposculpture procedure, fine incisions are made as the entry ports. The thin metal tube at the tip of the device transfers the fat cells to the cannula to remove the fat deposits. A special syringe is used to create a negative pressure to vacuum the fat from these areas. An anesthetic solution is injected under the skin during the procedure. This solution is injected into the adipose (fat) tissue and causes the area to swell and numb. The solution also has a softening effect on the fat tissue; thereby, the removal of the fat is facilitated. Blood loss is minimal in this process, making the procedure quite a safe one. After the operation, the anesthetic effects of the swollen tissue can also last up to 12 hours. This also enables a comfortable healing process to experience.

There are limits to the amount of fat that can be safely removed in a single operation. If a large amount of fat needs to be removed, multiple sessions may be required. Removal of five liters of fat is considered to be the upper limit for liposculpture. However; for a heavier person, higher amounts of fat can be removed in stages. Nevertheless, it is important not to cause minor contour errors at this point, such as undulations or pallor. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to reshaping the contours rather than to the amount of fat removed.

Since the fat is light in weight, you may not experience a significant weight loss. But most of the time, and of course, more importantly; there will be a big change in the shape and contours of your body.

Depending on the region and the size of the patient, the procedure may take two to four hours.

The Doctor B Team will give you detailed information about the use of compression garments and will inform you about how long you are going to wear them. We generally recommend the use of compression garments for at least 3 weeks following the procedure. Many patients continue to wear compression garments for further comfort and safety.

You may feel some degree of discomfort. While some patients get through this process without using painkillers, we give painkillers to some patients at minor or higher dosages. During the first two days, there may be fluid discharge through the small holes in the skin. The fluid will be pinkish but the actual blood loss will be minimal or will not happen at all. Absorbent pads are provided to overcome this leakage and a plastic sheet is laid over the mattress. Wound pads help to contain the fluid discharge.

Most patients may return to work on the second day. At the end of the first week, most patients will feel quite comfortable. If you have experienced any bruising or edema, it will gradually resolve over the next three weeks.

You can start doing daily activities the next day. You can continue to perform them, gradually increasing their intensity approximately every two to four days or as your doctor recommends.

You are going to be able to see 70% of the outcome within 48 hours. One month after the procedure, most of our patients seem to have fully recovered and they feel very well. It may take up to three months for the final results to be obvious.

Most patients experience only a minimal degree of discomfort. Pain or some discomfort may last for several days. If excessive pain occurs, this may be a sign of an upcoming complication and should be reported to the Doctor B Team immediately. Skin discoloration, pallor or black and purple areas will disappear within a few weeks.
