How Does it Work?

Liposuction is a very popular procedure among both men and women. This procedure aims to remove stubborn fat tissue that people can’t get rid of with diets and exercises. It can be performed on the face, hips, abdomen, tights, and buttocks either alone or in combination with a facelift or tummy tuck.

For your online consultation, we will kindly ask you to send your photos as shown in the Photography Guide down below, so we can evaluate your case.

How Many Types of Liposuction are There?

There are 4 types of liposuction, and these are:

Tumescent liposuction: 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 liposuction (UAL): In this type of liposuction, 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 suck the fat out.

Laser-assisted liposuction (LAL): During LAL, your surgeon will use a laser to rupture the fat cells to liquefy them. Once the cells are liquefied, the surgeon will remove them.

Water-jet-assisted liposuction: This type requires the surgeon to use pressurized saline. The saline stream will be used to loosen the fat cells instead of rupturing them. This will make the fat removal process smoother and quicker.

What Does Liposuction Surgery Involve?

Once you have decided to undergo Liposuction, we will plan and customize the whole procedure so as to suit your personal preferences, needs, and the clinics’ practices. When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your Liposuction surgeon.

Part of the discussions will be about your expectations and goals. Here is what you should expect during the Liposuction procedure:

1.     Taking the Anesthesia

Liposuction can be done while you are under local anesthetic, but if the surgery is too complex and it requires the surgeon to remove a large amount of fat from multiple locations, your surgeon can opt for general anesthesia.

2.     Making the incisions

Once you are anesthetized, your surgeon will start the procedure by making small incisions on the predetermined areas. The incisions will be minimal and tiny, this also translates to minimal scarring. If your surgery involves complementary surgeries such as tummy tuck, then your surgeon can make large incisions.

3.     Reduction of the fat tissues

After your surgeon makes the incisions, the next step is to remove unwanted fat. This is done using a medical tube known as the cannula. The surgeon will loosen the fat tissue by moving the cannula back and forth. This makes it easy to suction the fat cells.

4.     Assisted techniques

Your surgeon may use ultrasound or laser-assisted techniques to make the suction process easier as these techniques liquefy the fat cells.

5.     Closing the incision sites

After removing the fat deposits, your surgeon will suture the incisions. Your surgeon may decide to put temporary drain tubes underneath the skin so as to drain excess fluid. This also helps minimize the risk of being infected.

6.     Check-up after the operation

When the operation is done, you will have to spend the first night at the hospital –under the supervision of well-trained medical assistants. On the next day, your surgeon will make post-op check-ups, and it is during this period that you will be given instructions to follow during the recovery period.

 

What Should I Expect After Liposuction Surgery?

  • You are required to rest for a couple of days after the surgery.
  • You should expect to have some swelling for a few days after the surgery.
  • You are required to wear a compression garment for a few weeks after the surgery. Your surgeon will give you the garment.
  • You should take your medications in time so as to reduce swelling, pain, and prevent infections.
  • You will begin to notice 90% of the results four weeks after the procedure.
  • Even if the fat cells are removed permanently via Liposuction, it would be best if you watch what you eat since fat cells might begin to grow somewhere else in the body.

Things You Should Do Before Surgery

  • A week before the procedure, you should stop taking Aspirin and any other meds associated with blood thinning.
  • If you are allergic to any drugs, you should inform your surgeon as soon as possible.,
  • Patients are advised to avoid smoking 24 hours before the surgery.
  • Consuming any alcoholic beverages can affect anesthesia. So you should not take in anything alcoholic 24 hours prior to surgery.
  • If you are taking meds for chronic or acute diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, you should inform your surgeon before the surgery commences.  

FAQ

Is Liposuction Painful?

Patients don’t feel any pain during the liposuction surgery because it requires going under anesthesia for the procedure. Possible postoperative pain can easily relieve with the help of prescribed medicines.

Is Liposuction Safe?

Although it looks like an easy and relatively safer cosmetic procedure, Liposuction carries major risks as well. It's not a weight loss surgery, and there are certain requirements to be a good candidate for it.

Patients should choose an experienced and certified plastic surgeon and clinic for the procedure and get informed about all of the potential complications and risks before the surgery.

How Long Does It Take to See Results After Liposuction?

Liposuction typically causes postoperative swelling. The majority of swelling improves after four weeks up to a few months, and the final result will not be visible until the swelling is gone.

    Coming from Canada to Turkey made me think a lot, but I'm glad I came. I came a few days before my surgery. I had a very nice holiday in Izmir. Afterwards, I met Dr. Sema Ozden and had my surgery. I had the surgery that I want AND took a vacation... I couldn't be happier... Hit two birds with one stone! lol

    I just came back from the trip last week. Everything was pleasant in general. I like the fact that there is always someone to contact. Both clinic and the Flymedi team were very helpful with every question. My coordinator still checks on me if I am doing good. That shows that I made the right choice because they made me feel like they care about their patients. I would recommend it to anyone. I didn't have to worry about the trip details while preparing myself for the surgery. That saved me a lot of trouble mentally. Trust me, you wouldn't want to deal with the commute in Istanbul, especially during winter. Airport was a little far. I am grateful they arrange all the pick ups. It's %100 worth it.

    As I was so concerned between doing my surgeries in the UK or Turkey and since everyone you speak to says they are the best but you end up being surprised later. I started looking online for my liposuction surgery and I found Flymedi.com. As soon as I registered my inquiry, Abud directly calls me and was so friendly. I felt like I know him for a long while and he was so helpful and open to all questions and concerns. As soon as he got my information he started looking for the best choices for me. I literally didn’t expect he would get what I was looking for accurately. He sent me 3 offers and they all fitted my budget and all my concerns. I have decided to go with Luna clinic because they really had the most qualified surgeon and best results. I got all the information of my medical diagnosis and the difference between all the techniques. After doing some research, I really found that Luna clinic is just the best place. Abud was able to organize everything needed and was available days and nights that for a moment I was wondering if he takes any rest or has time for himself. All I had to do is to buy my flight ticket otherwise my hotel, surgery, and transfers was all sorted. I came all the way and it was all provided as we spoke before. Abud even didn’t leave me alone and was always checking on me. The hotel was so quiet and clean as well. I really had a memorable stay and I’ll definitely recommend it to all my family and friends. Thanks a lot, Abud and Flymedi from my deep heart

I was assigned to a coordinator; Mr. Can, who was very helpful when I was in Turkey. My only concern was the transportation and the hotel stay after the surgery. But the flymedi team also helped me to arrange those and everything went fine. Dr. Sema was very professional. I have already recommended her clinic to my friends. Thank you for everything!

    For about a year and so I was thinking about getting Vaser Liposuction, and luckily when I was ready to move forward with the procedure I came across Flymedi in which I was contacted by Nadia. As I was planning to travel to Istanbul alone It was important for me to find an agency or a clinic in which I wouldn’t feel alone and I would feel comfortable.The minute I spoke with Nadia I got a very good vibe and she was very comforting and helpful.What I liked the most about Nadia specifically she was not pushy or aggressive rather she provided me with options and left it up to me to decide in which I felt she was very genuine and actually cared about her customer’s comfort rather than just trying to sell a deal.Nadia was available at all times whenever I had a question, she checked on me before, during and after the procedure. I am still recovering, but I am very happy with the results so far and the clinic that I went with.I would definitely go with Flymedi again for any future procedures.

    Great experienceThis is my first time communicating with a company overseas (out of states). To be honest it was kind of risky at the beginning, specially that I didn’t know anyone who used their services. I have applied online through their website, and within a very short time I had a response from them via WhatsApp. Geumana was a great communicator, she did her best to answer all my questions. She wasn’t pushy at all. She reviewed my situation with more than one doctor and gave me their opinions. She was with me from day 1 till today (after procedure)! She made sure that the communication with the clinic is okay and transportation and arrangements ...etc. Now after my procedure and going through all the experience, as she had informed me the staff in the clinic and the doctor were great! Still healing but I can tell that I am satisfied from the results! Very happy I had this experience and would highly recommend it to my friends and family! Thank you so much Geumana from FlyMedi
