Mega Liposuction


What does mega liposuction mean?
Fat removal of more than 6-7 liters in a single procedure is called mega liposuction.

In which patients does mega liposuction provide good results?
In classical liposuction to be performed on patients with excessive fat, 3-4 liters of fat intake will not provide much benefit for correction of body contours. Mega liposuction will be very pleasing in patients, who are above normal weight, cannot go on a diet, do not want to undergo gastric surgery, cannot do sports, and have no problems with the required health checks performed before the surgery.

What are the benefits of mega liposuction?
With mega liposuction, up to 15-20 liters of aspiration can be performed in a single procedure. This amount provides a surgery that will reveal body contours (waist, abdomen) and eliminate excess protrusions (breast, armpit, hip).

There will be a noticeable improvement in the body considering that the amount of dress size lost and the extent to which the body lines get slimmer is more important compared to the amount of total weight loss.

Positive developments are observed in patients with diabetes after the removal of this amount of fat from the body.

Fat is a tissue that stores estrogen; therefore, the decrease in libido also improves with the proportional increase in testosterone level after surgery in male patients.

The decrease in body weight makes it possible to increase the number of movements and facilitates exercising.

The positive change in body appearance after the surgery increases the motivation to diet and makes dieting easier.
