FQA about liposuction in South Korea:

This is a surgical procedure to remove fat deposits in certain areas of the body.
This surgery is not a treatment for obesity, as it does not eliminate the original cause. The main task of liposuction is to give the figure a beautiful outline. However, liposuction is often the most effective method of correcting the body line.

Most often liposuction is performed on parts of the body such as the abdomen, arms, buttocks, shins, back, outer and inner thighs, as well as the neck and chin.

It is not necessary to focus on such an indicator as weight in liposuction. This procedure is not a way of losing weight or weight loss, it is aimed at improving the contours of the body. With liposuction, you can create a beautiful and natural body contour by reducing the volume of fat tissue.

In the case of the removal of more than 10% of body weight, the procedure can be dangerous for the health condition. Thus, it is very important not to remove large amounts of fat, but to pick up the optimal amount to create a beautiful body without causing harm. It is very important to find an experienced plastic surgeon, as if you remove fat far from the excess, there is a possibility of an undesirable side effects.

This amount is calculated based on your body’s mass index, the higher it is, the more fat you can safely remove. In plastic surgery clinics in South Korea, a body composition examination is mandatory before consultation to determine the exact ratio of body fat and muscle mass.
Also, the amount of fat that can be removed with liposuction depends on the volume, body part and quality of fat. It is very important to find an experienced plastic surgeon, as if you remove fat far from excess, there is a possibility of undesirable side effects.

While maintaining a stable body weight, the effect of the procedure is constant. Even if you add fat (in small size), the form created by liposuction will remain the same. In some cases, when gaining weight, fat appears on other parts of the body.
When you gain some weight, fat cells increase in size and volume. With liposuction it is possible to reduce the number of fat cells in certain areas of the body.
An effective liposuction procedure will remove fat cells forever, but with a heavy weight gain you may develop new fat cells. Therefore, even after liposuction, proper nutrition and exercise are recommended.

After liposuction, the skin itself adapts and takes on a new shape according to the contour of the body. If your skin is elastic enough, the surface will be smooth and smooth. With low skin elasticity, after the procedure it may look flabby, so additional procedures may be required to give the skin elasticity.

With liposuction it is impossible to get rid of cellulite and stretch marks on the skin. Liposuction helps to improve the contours of the body, but not the structure of the skin.
