Liposuction Surgery in Turkey


Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery used to remove excess fat from specific areas of the body that are hard to lose from traditional exercise or diet. This is not a weight loss procedure and is more commonly performed to reshape certain areas of the body such as stomach, hips, thighs, and buttocks for aesthetic appearances.

Preparing for Liposuction Surgery

Before Liposuction surgery the surgeon will do a medical examination to assess your eligibility for this procedure. They will discuss your overall goals and aesthetic preferences, as well as any underlying health conditions, and current medications or supplements that you may be taking.

The doctor will assess if you have good skin elasticity, take photographs for your medical history, and check your weight and BPI. They will also need to undergo some laboratory tests where the doctor will take a full blood count and book you in for a mammogram to check for the percentage of fatty tissue.

It is important to share accurate information with the surgeon before the procedure and follow the preoperative process. This may include some of the following:

– Stop Smoking
– Avoid Anti Inflammatory drugs
– Maintain a healthy diet and hit your weight goal

Liposuction Procedure


The Liposuction procedure starts by the surgeon making marks on the body where the fat will be removed. They will then inject the area with anesthetic and make an incision to allow the suction tube to be inserted so they can loosen up fat and suck it out. The process typically takes about 1-3 hours and is done under general anesthesia.

Depending on the type of liposuction the surgeon may use a few different techniques.

Traditional Liposuction – A cannula is used for this procedure and holes the sizes of between 2 to 3 millimeters are created. This leaves minimal scarring on the patient’s body and is used to remove fat in all areas but mainly the hip, back, and belly sections.

Laser Liposuction – Known by all three names – Laser liposuction, laser-assisted liposuction, or SmartLipo, this is a modern technology that allows the breakdown of fat cellular deposits, before they are extracted. One of the great advantages of this particular procedure is that it not only reduces the fat deposits but it also helps to tighten any loose skin when extracted.

Vaser Hi-Def liposuction – VASER stands for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance where waves of ultrasound are used to disrupt the bonds between fat cells. The Vaser method makes use of ultrasound wave technology. It helps to melt the fat first. Used primarily as the preferred method to remove belly fat.

Liposuction Recovery

Typically it can take 4-6 weeks for the body to fully recover from liposuction, but you should be able to do some gentle exercise 3-4 weeks after surgery. After one week the stitches will be removed and usually you can return to work one week after the operation.

Immediately after surgery you will experience some pain and swelling, but you will be prescribed painkillers and antibiotics to help reduce any discomfort. It is advised not to drive 24 hours after surgery and to wait 48 hours before taking a bath.

From six weeks and beyond you will see the majority of swelling and bruising subside and will most likely not need to use the compression garment. The corset should be removed when taking a bath and be worn for at least six weeks.
