Medical Aesthetic

Lipolysis comes in the name of removing the fats by increasing the permeability of the membrane surrounding the fat cell wall. It is the process of removing the broken down fats and fatty acids from the body by transporting them to the liver through the circulation, kidney and metabolic pathway by the lymphatic system. Lipolysis can provide the opportunity to get rid of fat without the need for surgery. As in liposuction, it is aimed to remove the fat from the body instead of taking it to the outside, so that irregular intake that may occur with surgery is prevented and the person’s body shaping is provided in a natural way as he/she desires. As a result of this treatment method, regional fat accumulations in the body are reduced, and laxity loss and laxity that cause loosening in the skin can be eliminated.
