Laser liposuction or laser lipolysis is a technique commonly used for destroying accumulated fat in the body. The laser radiation by its thermal effect allows the destruction of fat cells and the obtaining of a skin retraction. Comparing with the traditional liposuction procedure, laser liposuction is a less invasive and less bloody procedure in which a small tube is inserted through a tiny incision to deliver laser energy and heat into the excessive fat that is under the skin. The increase in temperature in the dermis induces excitation of the fibroblast which will produce collagen. This skin stretching effect constitutes a definite advantage of laser liposuction, in particular in certain delicate areas where liposuction gives often disappointing results: the inner face of the thighs, arms, neck, stomach area or back. When the quantity of fat to be treated is large, it may be more effective to combine laser liposuction and conventional liposuction to improve the results. The choice between these different techniques will be the result of clinical examination and discussion between the plastic surgeon and the patient.

Laser liposuction is recommended for healthy adults who want to look thinner and sculpt their bodies with the help of non-surgical treatment. People who are obese are not suitable for this treatment as laser lipo helps to contour and shape the body rather than provide significant weight loss.

I travelled all the way from US by myself to come here and get rhinoplasty done, my surgery was a week ago by Dr Hasan duygulu he is extremely professional and excellent at his job. My whole stay was made very easy and comforting by Kate, Sultan and Enes. I have been coordinating with Kate this whole time from the start till the end. She has been amazing throughout and ensuring. They all were there for me when i needed them and even after. It was a great decision for me and i m totally proud of myself that i was able to find the best and proceeded with it. I thank everyone part of luna clinic and the hospital for your kind and loving hospitality. I will recommend coming to Dr Hasan to everyone and anyone without any hesitation

I would highly recommend Flymedi and Abud

I would highly recommend Flymedi. My mom had a gastric balloon fitted at the Luna clinic and everything went smoothly. When I was looking for a clinic in Turkey I found Flymedi as medical tourism, I contacted them by email and they got back to me in a short time. I was assigned Abud as health coordinator and I don’t have enough words to thank him. He’s professional but on top of that he loves what he’s doing and he does really care. As I said before I don’t have enough words to thank Abud and Flymedi and I’m so happy I made the right decision by choosing them. If you want to have the bed experience choose Flymedi and you won’t regret it.

Rhinoplasty 12 days ago- Luna Clinic- Dr. Hasan Duygulu

I had my rhinoplasty done exactly 12 days ago with doctor Hasan Duygulu. Before flying to Istanbul, I was very scared of doing this somewhere far from home but , from the first day of our arrival I knew I chose the right clinic; we met Sultan at the gate of the hospital, she was extremely nice and accommodating and organised, she comforted and still comforting me with answering every question and concerns possible and was with me through the whole before, during and after process which I am still experiencing btw. At the day of the surgery we met doctor Hasan, he is very nice and professional, I told him what I wanted and he took pictures of my face and showed me what my nose could approximately look like after the surgery and addressed my concerns and questions which were a lot btw :) he came to visit me right after I woke up and the next morning as well. The hospital was very luxurious and the nurses were very nice and all our needs were met perfectly, everything was super organised and easy. Today I removed my cast and I am very happy with the results as early as it is with the swelling I am very satisfied and I cant wait to see the final results which seem to be very close to the pictures he showed me. Thank you Luna clinic and especially Sultan for making this life changing decisions the best decision I made. The whole experience was easy, trusted and comfortable thanks to you

I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi.

If you are thinking about surgery in Turkey, I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi. Abud was my contact and is there for you 24/7. He was quick to respond and did his very best to answer every question and keep me calm in what can be, a new and scary experience. I would highly recommend and you can be sure you are lucky if he is your contact. The hospital was very clean and staff were very professional and kind. The doctor did an amazing job and I am thrilled!!

Totally recommend

The whole process went really smooth from the beginning, it was really easy to communicate with them. I had my mommy makeover done in June, 2021 and the only thing I regretted is putting off my surgery for some years because I did not want to travel abroad, but in the end it was all worth it. The prices are much lower and I was happy with my surgeon (Prof. Omer), he is such a friendly person and an amazing surgeon as well. I love my results and I've never felt so confident in my body, even before the pregnancy. I can recommend Flymedi and my surgeon in particular.

Preparation

Before a laser fat removal or laser liposuction, patients should be healthy, at an acceptable weight, properly hydrated, and should not use blood thinners and anti-inflammatory drugs. It is recommended to consult your physician before you choose this laser treatment. Smoking should also be avoided at least two weeks before the procedure.

How It Is Performed

Laser liposuction is generally done under local anesthesia. During the procedure, surgeons make a small incision and insert a tiny laser under the skin that liquefies the fat. Then they insert a tiny tube, called a cannula, which sucks the melted fat out from beneath the skin.

 

Laser liposuction or laser fat removal, stimulates the collagen and elastin stimulating rejuvenation and giving the skin a firmer, more youthful appearance. One session of laser treatment lasts between 1 and 4 hours depending on the scope of the procedure.

Recovery

Laser liposuction treatment is associated with a shorter recovery time than traditional liposuction. Most patients may return to normal daily activities within 1.5 days. During recovery, patients should rest, apply a healthy diet and avoid stressful situations as much as possible. 

The results are immediate but the best effects can be seen a few months after the surgery when the post-operation inflammation disappears.

Risks

Like any other procedure, laser liposuction involves some risks and complications but they are usually very rare: 
• Small risk of infection 
• Minimal swelling 
• Minimal bruising 

• Skin irritation and/or rash

 

Choosing the right doctor can help decrease the possibility of risks and side effects.

Side Effects

The possible side effects of laser fat removal are: 
• Mild pain and bruising 

• Skin irritation
• Some post-op discomfort 
• Numbness from anesthesia

Success Rates

Laser liposuction treatment has an 89% success rate according to patients’ reviews.

Before And After

Laser liposuction can shape the body by eliminating excess fat tissue and reversing some of the effects of aging. This procedure is one of the minimally invasive surgical techniques so that patients can return to work and routine life activities immediately after the procedure. The best way to maintain results is to follow a balanced diet and regular exercise plan.
Before opting for this surgery, you should consult with a specialist and get informed on the procedure, its costs and decide if your expectations can be achieved through this treatment.

Faq

Is Laser Liposuction Painful?
