Etiler Esthetique Center and Private Etiler Hospital Medical Director Prof. Dr. Alper Çelik said, “During the pandemic, our body was attacked by stubborn fats, which especially love the abdomen, lower belly and waist region. Increasing concerns with deformations have made aesthetic operations no longer a luxury.”

Plastic surgeries have the power to improve mental health
Stating that the increasing concerns about physical health in the pandemic, combined with aesthetic concerns due to the deformations in our body, Prof. Dr. Alper Çelik said, “As important as strengthening our body's immunity is for our physical health, it is so important for us to be at peace with our body in terms of our mental health. Aesthetic operations are not only beautifying or rejuvenating, but also have the power to improve our mental health.”
Patient satisfaction and short recovery period success criteria
Noting that liposuction is not a weight loss process, it provides removal of deformations by removing stubborn fat accumulated in different parts of the body under anesthesia. Dr. Alper Çelik said, “There are 2 criteria that make an aesthetic operation successful. One of them is recovery in a short time, and the other is patient satisfaction. After completing the necessary health checks of our patients who apply to us with aesthetic concerns, we determine the areas where liposuction will be performed. After the liposuction surgery, our patients can return to their homes and return to their social lives after a short rest period.”
A healthy diet and regular exercise are essential for weight control!
Etiler Esthetique Center and Private Etiler Hospital Medical Director Prof. Dr. Alper Çelik said, “If it is not done carefully by the experts, fat cells may form again in the area where the liposuction operation is applied. Liposuction greatly reduces the fat cells in the area where it is performed, but if an irregular diet is continued, lubrication may occur in these areas. Therefore, healthy eating habits after the operation kazanExercising and exercising regularly are important for weight control. After all, liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, it is a body shaping surgery," he added.
