In the classical liposuction procedure, fluid is injected into the fat area by using sharp and large cannulae to fragment the fat tissue with the surgeon’s physical force and subsequently vacuumed with negative pressure. Liposuction is usually performed in hospital and under anesthesia. It is also common to have bruising for 20-30 days because it is carried out with mechanical impact. Subsequently a corset needs to be worn for up to 1 month. Even in light liposuction a recovery period of at least 3-6 weeks is required. In classical liposuction, fat is removed in lumps are and therefore a rough surface remains in the application area. As the edema recedes and the skin gets more and more settled in the application area this rough surface becomes more profound, any weight gain takes on a fluctuating and cellulite-like appearance. Since there is no application to provide skin tightening in classical liposuction, the skin sags after it has been emptied of localized fat and appears wavy. In addition to risks such as embolism, classical liposuction is a procedure causing severe tissue damage and therefore depending on the degree of damage the pain and distress are much more intense. 3D Laser lipolysis is a more effective and less traumatic method. The cannula is very thin and the tips are not sharp but blunt. It does not damage the veins and nerves. The application surface area is smooth because the fat is emulsified and extracted. Since the skin is tightened, no fluctuation occurs. On the contrary, it is accepted as a skin tightening method. The likelihood of bruising after application is minimal since the lasers make the microvessels in adipose tissue contract. It is not necessary to wear a corset for a long time after the application, it is enough to wear a corset only for 5-7 days. It can be applied with ease to the whole body for body shaping including areas such as the shoulders and outer arms, the under-chin, neck, upper abdomen, back, front thigh surface and ankles which react poorly to classical liposuction methods. Patients with loose and sagging skin who are not considered for classical liposuction, patients with excess fat (over 2lt in one area), patients with thick subcutaneous tissue and very high levels of connective tissue, patients with very compact fat tissue can easily and safely be treated with 3D Laser Lipolysis without causing defects such as unwanted rippling, sagging, dimpling.
