Liposuction is the removal of excess fat tissue from one or more body parts by surgical methods. This process is often used to reduce fat in areas that are not corrected by diet and exercise.


This procedure can be performed under local or general anesthesia and the duration of the procedure may vary depending on the size of the applied area and the amount of adipose tissue.

Can be applied to reduce fat tissue, especially in the abdomen, hips, waist, thighs, lower legs, arms, face, neck and back.

Can be done with various techniques. Among them:

  1. Traditional Liposuction: It is the oldest  method in which excess adipose tissue is removed through a vacuum tube.
  2. Ultrasonic Liposuction: It is done by dissolving and then removing the fat cells with the help of sound waves.
  3. Laser Liposuction: Fat tissue is melted with laser beams and then removed.
  4. Water Jet Liposuction: Fat tissue is removed using water jet.

After the procedure, there may be swelling, bruising, pain and slight bleeding. These symptoms will subside in a few days. The healing process may vary depending on the person’s age, health status, the treated area and technique applied.
