What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that is used to remove fat with the help of the suction technique from one targeted area, such as:

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Under Chin

By using a cannula, a tube, excess fat is pumped out of the body. The goal is to achieve a better shape of the body by removing fat deposits. Therefore, the surgery only corrects the body shape and is not a way to lose weight.

Types of Liposuction

While there are several techniques for liposuction, we present below three of the most preferred techniques for liposuction:

  • Vaser Liposuction: Most of the plastic surgeons use Vaser Liposuction since this technique is considered the gentlest liposuction method and significantly cheaper than J-Plasma. This technique is a kind of ultrasonic liposuction.
  • J-Plasma: The J-Plasma, also known as Renuvion, is a very popular technique as it not only removes the fat but also tightens the skin. That is why this technique is more expensive.
  • Smart Lipo: This type is the least invasive laser liposuction procedure. This technique uses a thin tube that holds a 1 mm laser fibre, which is why only small incisions are made, leaving no or very minimal scars. Unlike regular liposuction, this method can reduce cellulite and tighten sagging skin. Since Smart Lipo is gentler and can also be performed under local anesthesia and sedation, this method is very popular.

Things you should know before your Liposuction in Istanbul:

  • Please be aware that you can only undergo liposuction if you are overall healthy and have a certain Body Mass Index (BMI). Otherwise the procedure will be too risky.
  • Poor liposuction can result in serious complications. Choosing a trusted, certified clinic and experienced surgeons is highly recommended. 
  • The liposuction procedure is not for weight loss. If you are severely overweight or obese, you are not a candidate for liposuction. Individuals under 18 years of age and patients with chronic diseases are also not suitable.
  • Since smoking increases the risk of complications during surgery and slows the healing process, you should stop smoking.
  • Liposuction will help to remove fat from your body, but afterwards, you need to take care of your body or the fat will return. To keep your body in good condition, you need to watch your diet and exercise after the procedure.
  • You should plan at least 4 days for your liposuction surgery in Istanbul.
  • On average, a regular liposuction surgery takes 3.5 hours.
  • Liposuction leaves a very small scar at the incision site, but in many cases it tends to fade away over time.
  • You should take into account that you will have to wear a compression garment for several weeks after the procedure. Therefore, it is recommended to perform liposuction in the winter months.
  • Normally, you only need one session for liposuction.
  • Recovery takes several weeks. Note that you will need to wait one to two months for the swelling to go down completely.
  • Please be aware that if your skin elasticity is insufficient, it can result in loose skin. Some patients therefore opt for the procedure called Tummy Tuck (see below).

Procedure of Liposuction in Istanbul

Since Smart Lipo is one of the most preferred liposuction techniques, we will describe the procedure of liposuction in Istanbul using Smart Lipo as an example:

The first step is to submit your medical history and pictures of your body, so your surgeon can analyze whether you are a good candidate for Smart Lipo. During an online consultation with your doctor, you will discuss your expectations as well as the risks and benefits of the procedure.

Once you arrive in Istanbul, you will come to the clinic, where you will undergo a comprehensive examination and determine the type of correction you desire. If your Smart Lipo is performed under general anesthesia, remember not to eat or drink anything after midnight the day before your procedure.

Usually, the Smart Lipo surgery takes place the day after your examination. After a blood test and consultation with your attending physician, you will be prepared for the surgery. Typically, the duration of a Smart Lipo procedure ranges from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the complexity of the surgery. After several hours, patients can often leave the hospital and go home.

The next day, you will come to the clinic for a follow-up checkup and receive instructions for post-treatment care.

Procedures that are often combined with Liposuction:

Below are 4 of the most popular procedures in Istanbul that are combined with liposuction:

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

A Tummy Tuck, also called Abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that combines liposuction of the abdomen with removal of excess loose skin. At the same time, abdominal muscles are tightened. As a result, you have a flatter and firmer abdomen.

This surgery takes about 4-5 hours and is more expensive than liposuction aloneBe aware that the procedure leaves a large scar across the lower abdomen.

This special technique is used to create a six-pack for male patients during liposuction, thus achieving a natural and fit appearance.

If you want to add a six-pack procedure to your liposuction, you have to expect an extra charge of about €500.

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

Brazilian Butt Lift is a very famous surgical procedure that is becoming more and more popular. During BBL, fat is removed from the abdomen, thighs or other parts of the patient's body via liposuction and injected into the buttocks.
