The word liposuction, which has always been popular among aesthetic applications from the past to the present, is formed from the combination of the words “Lipo” fat and “Suction” suction, and is defined as “Oil absorption”. The purpose of the application is to give the body a more aesthetic appearance and to remove excess fat from the areas where the patient is uncomfortable. The application can be applied in many areas where fat is seen in the body, especially in areas such as the hips, hips, waist and abdomen.

- Varieties such as Vaser assisted liposuction (VAL) can be mentioned.
The method called “Wet Technique” or “Tumescent Technique” is generally used for the process. This method is to fill the fat cells in the area with a liquid and inflate them. The liquid contains substances with properties such as Lidocaine (pain reliever) and Adrenaline (stopping bleeding). After the swelling of the cells is completed, the fat cells are reached through incisions made on the skin. In this process, the vacuum process made through thin-ended pipes is used and the absorption of unwanted oil is made possible.

Liposuction is an ideal application for patients suffering from high amounts of fat. The application can be repeated in different parts of the body where there is an increase in fat. Generally, it is recommended to repeat the application in 3 to 6 months for large areas. However, if the patient does not pay attention to the diet after liposuction, it will pave the way for the formation of regional lubrication again. For this reason, it is recommended to continue exercise and diet after the procedure. The application can also be repeated for people who have taken oil from the relevant area before, but who have had lubrication in the same place again.
