Liposuction in Istanbul

Compare 13 clinics

Liposuction, also known as lipo or lipoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure through which excess fat is removed from different areas of the body in order to achieve a better, more aesthetically pleasing body contour.

The procedure can be done under local, regional or general anaesthesia, depending on the sensitivity of the area and the amount of fatty tissue that needs to be removed. The amount of tissue that can be removed safely depends heavily on the patient’s state of health, the area where the fat is located and other factors.

Below are some of the most popular types of liposuction a patient may turn to in order to achieve a better body contour:

● Buttocks Liposuction
● Neck Liposuction
● Arms Liposuction
● Abdomen Liposuction – with or without a Tummy Tuck
● Thighs Liposuction
● Breasts Liposuction
● Hips Liposuction
● Gynecomastia – known as male breast tissue liposuction

Liposuction Candidates

Any patient that is a bit overweight or has certain fat build ups in certain areas such as belly fat can benefit from a liposuction procedure. The most important requirement is that the patient has a stable weight before going in for surgery.

Am I Suitable for Liposuction?

Liposuction is not recommended for obese individuals or patients considering liposuction as a weight loss method. Patients suffering from heart problems, diabetes or certain infections are at risk of developing complications from liposuction surgery and they may not be good candidates for this procedure.

Preparing for Liposuction

The patient should avoid the intake of vitamins, herbal tea, any aspirin based medicine and should quit smoking at least 10 days before the liposuction surgery.

How is Liposuction Performed?

During the first part of the procedure, the patient is administered a local, regional or general anaesthetic, depending on the area where the liposuction will be performed. Once the anaesthetic sets in, the surgeon will create a few small incisions and proceed to use the cannula to break down fatty deposits in the area. Laser or ultrasound may also be used in order to liquefy fat and make it easier to extract. Once enough fat is extracted, bandages are applied to keep bleeding down to a minimum and to prevent infections.

There are a few types of liposuction available for patients, depending on their needs and the area where it needs to be done:

● Vaser Liposuction
● Laser Liposuction
● Ultrasound Liposuction
● Water assisted Liposuction

Liposuction Recovery

During the recovery period it’s essential to follow the doctor’s instructions carefully. Patients can usually return to work within a couple of days but this depends on the area where the liposuction is performed. A special type of compression garment will be worn by the patient during the recovery period. It may take a few months before the post-operatory swelling fully recedes and the patient’s new body is revealed.

Scars after Liposuction

Scars after liposuction surgery are generally small and they are barely noticeable when fully healed. Wearing the compression garment as instructed also helps reduce scarring. The scars are usually smaller than 1 cm, about the size of the cannula used in the procedure.

Liposuction Side Effects

During the first 5 to 10 days after the surgery patients may feel discomfort, swelling, bruising and inflammation. Depending on the type of anaesthesia, some patients may feel nausea or dizziness.

Liposuction Success Rates

Around 87% of patients report being satisfied with the procedure and around 86% would recommend it to family and friends.

Before and After Liposuction

Before and after liposuction photos might look appealing but patients need to keep in mind that the body needs a few months to adjust and reduce all the swelling. The patient will also need to continue following a diet in order to maintain the new body contour.

Istanbul

Istanbul is the biggest city in Turkey and In Europe, according to population – it has over 14 million inhabitants. Istanbul is Turkey’s financial, cultural and healthcare hub – it’s the city with the most JCI accredited private hospitals. The city spreads on both sides of the Bosphorus – The strait that divides the Marmara Sea and the Black Sea. Istanbul also connects Europe to Asia forming a very interesting mix, both gastronomically and culturally.

Over 11 million tourists visited Istanbul in 2012, making it the fifth most popular tourist destination in the world.

Sights to See

The Blue Mosque
The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, also called the Blue Mosque incorporates Islamic architecture and Byzantine Christian elements in its design. It is considered to be the last great mosque of the classical period. The Mosque got its name from the 20,000 Iznik blue ceramic tiles used to line its interiors. The Blue Mosque is also the final resting place of Sultan Ahmed which commissioned the building in 1609, with work finishing in 1616.

Basilica Cistern
The Basilica Cistern is one of the most popular tourist sites in Istanbul. The Cistern is huge, with a total of 336 columns arranged in 12 rows. It was built in order to store water during the Byzantine time – in the 6th century. Most of the columns feature decorative carvings, as they were re-used from other classical-age structures. Some of the most interesting columns on the site are the Medusa stones, in the north-west corner of the Cistern.

Topkapı Palace
Topkapı Palace is one of the finest examples of Islamic art and architecture. The palace itself was built by Mehmet the Conqueror in the 15th century and has been the residence of Ottoman Sultans for over 400 years. The palace is a vast complex of richly decorated courtyards and rooms. The palace features a Harem, the Imperial Treasury room, the Imperial Council Chamber, the Second Court, the Third Court (the Sultan’s private rooms) and the Palace Kitchens. The palace became an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985 and has been described as “one of the best examples of palaces of the Ottoman period”.

Tourists can enjoy a wide range of shopping centres and bazaars such as the Grand Bazaar, the Egyptian bazaar and many modern shopping malls all around Istanbul.

Things to Know

● Tourists arriving in Istanbul will be required to purchase a tourist Visa – the procedure can be easily done online or at a visa machine before the immigration section of the airport. The Visa costs around 20 USD.

● There are 3 main airports in Istanbul. Hazerfen Airport is a private airport with limited traffic. Atatürk Airport is located on the European side of Istanbul and Sabiha Gökçen Airport is located on the Asian side of Istanbul. Usually planes land at the Atatürk Airport (IATA:IST) which is just 20 km from the city centre. From there a visitor can take a taxi to Taksim Square for around TRY60. Tourists can also use a local airport service called Havataş which runs express bus services every 30 minutes for around TRY11 to Taksim Square and Aksaray.

● Food and drink at the airport is quite expensive and may cost 4 times more than in the city. It is advisable to bring your own meals from the town if you have a lot of waiting to do at the airport. There is also a supermarket close to the airport metro entrance where you can buy reasonably priced food and drink.

● You can change any sort of currency into the Turkish Lira (TRY) just about anywhere across Istanbul. Most shops and supermarkets also accept credit cards for payment.

● Roaming fees in Turkey are expensive, but you can simply buy a new SIM card when you reach Istanbul and use it for the duration of your stay.

● Istanbul has a humid subtropical climate, so the summer months are generally warm and in winter temperatures differ from place to place.

Liposuction FAQ

?
Is liposuction painful?

Liposuction is not painful, as anaesthesia is administered before the surgery begins. There may be soreness and pain during the recovery period but painkillers can be used to handle it.

?
Can I have liposuction if I’m obese?

Definitely not - liposuction is not a treatment for obesity. Patients need to have a stable weight and be in good health before liposuction surgery.

?
What’s the difference between a tummy tuck and liposuction?

A tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin tissue from the body. Liposuction is used to remove fatty tissue only and scarring is almost unnoticeable.
