Depending on the surgery complexity, it takes 2 - 4 hours to complete the surgery.
The liposculpture procedure has a short recovery period. You will need a week off from work; most of your activities should be minimal for the first two weeks. Swelling and bruising are expected during this period and may last between four to ten weeks after the procedure.
You can return to exercise after four to six weeks after the procedure. But full recovery will differ from one patient to another; it might take several months up to a year to see the final results. You should follow up with your doctor and follow the post-operation instruction.
Liposculpture surgery has a success rate of 85-95%
The surgeon removes the fat from the targeted area and transfers it into the areas that need better reshaping to improve your body's contour. Liposculpture helps to highlight the abdominal muscles or narrow the waist. Most surgeons prefer the tumescent technique to minimize scarring and blood loss.
Many patients combine other procedures like tummy tuck with liposculpture to get better results.

We will plan and arrange the procedure to suit your personal preferences and match you with the best liposculpture surgeon available in Turkey. There are a few primary steps involved in this procedure. Here is what you can expect:
Depending on your case, your surgeon might decide on general or local anesthesia. To make you feel comfortable during the surgery, you will need intravenous sedation.
Once you are anesthetized, your surgeon will start the procedure by making small incisions on the targeted areas then insert small thin tubes to remove the fat; the tube will create a negative pressure area.
Once the fat is removed, the surgeon will transfer it to a machine to purify the fat cells and remove other fluids like blood.
The surgeon will pump the fat into the selected area to enhance the muscle shape in this stage.
After removing the fat cells, your surgeon will suture the incisions and place temporary drain tubes underneath the skin to drain excess fluids. It also helps minimize the risk of being infected.
After the surgery, you will have to spend the first night at the hospital –under the supervision of well-trained medical assistants. The next day, your surgeon will make post-op check-ups and give you instructions to follow during the recovery period.
Liposculpture treatment targets areas that are unresponsive to exercise and diet. Some of the most common areas liposculpture surgery is used for are:
There are four main techniques your surgeon might use while performing liposculpture surgery:
Tumescent liposculpture: This is the most common type of liposuction. During the procedure, your surgeon will inject a sterile solution that helps remove fat, an anesthetic (lidocaine) to relieve pain, and a drug that causes your blood vessels to contract (epinephrine).
Ultrasound-assisted liposculpture (UAL): In this type of ultrasonic liposculpture, the surgeon will use a cannula that uses sound waves to rupture the fat cells. Since the fat will be liquified, it will be easier to extract it.
Laser-assisted liposuction (LAL): Your surgeon will use a laser to rupture the fat cells to liquefy them during LAL. Once the cells are liquefied, the surgeon will remove them.
Water-jet-assisted liposuction: This type requires the surgeon to use pressurized saline to loosen the fat cells instead of rupturing them. It will make the fat removal process smoother and quicker.
What's the difference between liposculpture vs liposuction?
Liposuction targets broad areas to remove the fat, while liposculpture targets smaller areas. Liposculpture focuses on highlighting the muscles by manipulating your body fats. In comparison, liposuction removes fat deposits to give your body a slimmer look.
How safe is liposculpture?
Any surgery carries risks, especially with surgeries requiring anesthesia. But liposuction procedures have been around for a while, and the latest available techs have reduced these risks significantly. Also, it is vital to choose the right surgeon who has experience in liposculpture.
What is the recovery time for liposculpture?
The recovery period will vary from one patient to another, but typically, the recovery will take 4 - 6 weeks.
Is liposculpture cost abroad affordable?
In general, yes the procedure will be more affordable abroad and cost less in popular medical tourism locations like Turkey. But there are some factors that affect the liposculpture cost abroad like the location of the clinics, the surgeon's experience, and the technique used.
