Liposuction is a method of taking up excess fat deposits under the skin by means of special cannulas using vacuum or specially prepared injectors. With this method, excess fat can be removed comfortably and safely. While local anaesthesia is preferred for fat removal from several localised areas, general anaesthesia is appropriate for several areas. Liposuction can be performed on more than one area in a single session. The operation takes between 1-3 hours. Although the patient does not need to stay in hospital to remove fat deposits in one or two locations, the patient may need to stay in hospital for 1-2 days if more fat is removed. Wearing of the corset for liposuction should be started within 1-2 days. The corset should be worn for two months. If there is a suture, it will be removed in 5-10 days. It takes 8 weeks for the swelling to go down and the body shape to become visible. Surgical scars also become indistinct within 2-6 months.
