Liposuction in Turkey

People who do not have weight-related problems such as obesity but have fat that cannot be removed by regional slimming methods are wondering “What is liposuction?”. Liposuction is a type of surgery that increases self-confidence with its aesthetic aspect, for fatty areas that cannot be removed after all diet, sports and weight loss efforts. Thanks to lipo surgery, which is effective in eliminating the inequalities between the lower body and the upper body, fat can be removed from both the upper body and the necessary places in the lower region. Weight inequalities that affect clothing style and affect a person's mental health can be easily eliminated. Although it is generally thought of as a liposuction weight loss method, liposuction is a body-shaping surgery. Liposuction techniques are among the most preferred aesthetic surgery operations in our country and in the world.


Liposuction, also known as fat removal, is a surgical method applied to remove excess fat tissue and give the body a better shape. Liposuction is generally applied by vacuuming and removing fat tissues, which are made more fluid by various methods, through 1-2 mm incisions, using thin and long cannulas with a diameter of 2-3 mm. This application is especially applied to areas where fat and regional excesses are observed, such as hips, abdomen (abdominal liposuction), waist and knees.

First, liquid is injected into the areas to be treated. This injection liquefies and swells the fatty tissue, allowing the fat cells to be easily removed. Then, the fat cells are suctioned using a thin cannulated device. Liposuction can be used to correct body contours, reduce unwanted fat accumulation or for aesthetic purposes.

Turkey has become the medical centre of the world due to its affordability and technical development. But there are some other reasons why so many people choose the operation of liposuction, also known as fat removal surgery, in Turkey. Due to Turkey's geographical location, many patients from European countries, Gulf countries and North Africa come to visit our country for lipo operations. But Turkey's geographical location is not the only reason for this interest. Patients who come to Turkey every year for fat reduction surgery leave our country satisfied and happy, as liposuction reviews show.

When asked about the opportunities and services they have taken in Turkey, liposuction reviews are almost %100 positive and grateful for the results, thanks to Turkey’s correct use of developing technology, effective selection of the liposuction weight loss options and affordable price policy.  The fact that liposuction cost is affordable and that the healthcare sector has technical equipment at international standards makes Turkey a preferred choice for foreign patients. Comparing a liposuction cost UK to a liposuction in Turkey price, a huge gap can be clearly seen. Moreover, in countries like the UK or the USA, you have to wait an average of 2-3 months for an appointment to have a liposuction. In Turkey, however, you can make an appointment for a cosmetic treatment in a very short time.

In Which Situations is Liposuction Surgery Performed?

Liposuction is a method that can be applied to anyone who does not have a systemic health problem and is not pregnant or has just given birth. But for people with heart disease, diabetes and other systemic health problems, risk factors should carefully be determined by performing some tests, and necessary precautions should be taken. Liposuction is not a general slimming method, it is a method that enables regional slimming and smoother body lines. If you have a weight problem other than regional resistant fat, it would be more appropriate to first get rid of your excess weight and then apply this method for excess fat that does not go away with diet.

People who can have liposuction are as follows:

Normal or slightly overweight,

Does not have any health problems,

Unable to get rid of resistant fat despite diet and exercise,

Skin structure is also important for the success of liposuction surgery. Liposuction may not be suitable for people with loss of elasticity in their skin. A specialist will decide whether liposuction is suitable for you or not.

Liposuction Techniques

There are mainly three types of liposuction operation: Tumescent liposuction, Vaser liposuction and Laser liposuction.

Tumescent (Wet) Liposuction

In this method, before the suction process, the fat cells in the relevant area are filled with liquid and these cells are inflated. After the process of inflating the cells with liquid is completed, thin tubes with a diameter of 2-6 mm extending under the skin through the incisions made on the skin reach the relevant fat cells. The vacuum device to which these pipes are connected is moved over the body, allowing the body to absorb excess fat cells.

Ultrasonic (Vase) Liposuction

In this method, the area to be operated on is first reached with the help of small tubes used during the surgery. By applying ultrasonic vibrations in this area, the fat cells are softened and thus can be absorbed more easily. After the softening process, the liposuction process is completed with classical applications. Since ultrasound technology is used, the damage to the surrounding tissues can be minimized, thus creating a much more natural appearance. 

Laser Liposuction

Laser Liposuction is a method of directly blasting the membranes of fat cells using a diode laser. Just like fat removal methods, the laser liposuction method, which allows you to get rid of regional excess fat, is also used effectively to eliminate looseness, especially in areas where skin looseness can be seen, such as under the chin and on the face. In addition, in people with sweating problems, excessive sweating can be prevented by applying laser liposuction to the armpit. In this method, laser beams are sent through 2-3 mm fibre cannulas to the excess fat cells in the area to be operated on, allowing these cells to change from solid to liquid. Then, the absorption process is carried out with thin cannulas inserted under the skin through millimetric incisions. The fact that these cannulas are thinner than those used in the classical technique eliminates the problem of post-operative liposuction scars.

Liposuction Surgery Recovery and Results

After the operation, specially produced corsets are used for approximately 4 to 8 weeks during the liposuction recovery time, depending on the amount of fat tissue removed and the characteristics of the person. Edema and bruising are expected and will disappear over time. The stitches are removed one week after the procedure, and if there is no problem in the patient's general condition after one to three weeks, the patient can return to work and daily life. In order for the liposuction results to be permanent and to prevent the area where the application is applied from becoming fatty again, a balanced diet should be adopted, such as more vegetables, fibrous foods and low-fat proteins. Although most of the fat cells in the area where liposuction was applied were removed by vacuum, this does not mean that fat will not form again in the same place.

Liposuction scars will become less noticeable over time as the skin repairs itself and it takes approximately 6-9 months after the surgery to fully achieve the desired result.
