How can I loose abdominal fat fast?
First of all, you need to know that this procedure is mostly effective on patients who have stubborn fat in specific areas, like waist or belly, or outer thighs. If you have proportionally excess fat in combined areas like belly and thighs together, you should try loosing weight first. Because this is actually the kind of fat which would go away by dieting, this means you just have a few extra pounds on your body and the true solution for that is to diet.
Now on the other hand, if you have a stubborn fat in a certain area and the other areas are proportioned, then you will be a good candidate for liposuction surgery.
Because liposuction is actually not aiming to make you lose weight, but it aims to change your body shape when you look in the mirror.
If you are proportionally larger in many areas of your body, even if you try liposuction, without dieting and having a healthy lifestyle, you will gain back that fat once again.
After Liposuction, Is The Sucked Out Fat Gone Permanently?
Well, once again, liposuction is not a weight-loss surgery, of course it cannot guarantee that you will not gain back that fat, if the calories you take is more than the calories you burn, of course
you will gain weight. When you gain weight, the body will not replace the new fat cells with the old ones which were suctioned. If you gain weight, the operated areas will not become as big in size
as before liposuction procedure was applied. Those sucked fat cells have already been disappeared.
Another common known mistake is the liposuctioned fat appears in another place if weight is gained, this is also not true. But, on the other hand, it is also crucial to keep a healthy lifestyle
after liposuction. If you start eating junk food and think ‘oh the fat was removed and there is nothing for me to worry’ THIS IS WRONG! Because the remaining fat cells can become bigger
through gaining weight. However, the new gained weight shows up less in the operated areas compared to not operated areas.
Is The Surgery Painful? How Is The Recovery?
Rather than pain, most patients tend to feel soreness like they started going to the gym after a long break. However, we cannot forget the fact that the more areas are involved, the pain will be
worse. It is very important to keep the treated areas under the safety limits. There is a restriction about how much fat can be removed from each specific anatomy differently. Removing very large amounts of fat can be life-threateningly dangerous, that is why you should listen to your surgeon’s approach and comments about your case and how he/she decides to proceed.
During the recovery process, the swelling might become very annoying, you might even look bigger than how you were before the surgery. This is just oedema and the body is trying to get used to its new shape. Please do not be bothered by the swelling. The swelling will start to reside one month post surgery.
Due to trauma caused through liposuction surgery for breaking down fat cells, you will have bruising as well, this will fade away in time from week 1.
You would be wearing a tight corset garment after surgery for at least 3 weeks, this is to provide the best possible shape through the surgery, it is important to keep the corset on at all times after the surgery. After 3 weeks have passed, some patients continue to wear them, there is no harm in wearing the corset longer if you can. 🙂
Preparing For Liposuction Surgery
It is recommended to stop smoking 1 month before the surgery. Smoking effects the healing process negatively.
You should avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements because these meds increase blood circulation pace and it will cause bleeding to increase. You will go through a series of health tests before the surgery.
If you live abroad and planning to come to Turkey for liposuction surgery, you should stay in Istanbul for 7 days after the procedure.
