Liposuction is one of the best ways to get rid of your excess fat cells. In liposuction, surgeons take excess fat cells via special cannulas. Although excess fat is taken by liposuction, this procedure is not a weight-loss technique. However, some patients who want to lose weight, use this technique for helping their diets and exercise programs. But, you need to remind that liposuction is mainly used for the removal of non-aesthetic fat masses in people with ideal weight, in areas that are unlikely to be given by exercise and other methods.
People who want to undergo liposuction should be generally healthy. Because, liposuction is not an easy procedure, in contrast, it is a serious procedure.
If you have one of those diseases or addictions that are given below you are not eligible for liposuction:
- Connective tissue diseases
- Problems with blood clotting and bleeding disorders
- Heart-lung disease, high blood pressure
- Problems with wound healing
- Alcoholism and drug addiction
The health of the patient is the first condition to be sought. Therefore, the patient’s medical history and illnesses should be questioned with precision. In case of a systemic disease, the feasibility of the procedure and the measures to be taken should be determined by consulting the patient’s doctor and the anesthesiologist who will be involved in the surgery. Drugs that affect blood clotting, such as aspirin, should be discontinued at least two weeks before the procedure, otherwise, there may be excessive blood loss, congestion, and excessive bruising. Although some of these are temporary, blood collection, ie hematoma formation, may cause unwanted results and irregularities. Some herbal products may also cause bleeding tendencies. In such a case, the patient should consult his physician and discontinue the use of these substances. There are some important diseases in which anticoagulants used in these cases cannot be stopped. In such a case, liposuction should not be done.
