Liposuction Surgery Fundamentals

Liposuction is a fat removal procedure including a silhouette reshaping known as body sculpting. Often referred to as ‘liposculpture’, the operation consists in giving patients a proportional and pleasant physical appearance. Surgeons can target specific areas of your body, including the arms, hips, thighs, neck, jaw and the lower and upper back. The standard 360 vaser procedure targets the belly, waist and lower back areas.

Statistics show that tummy tuck and BBL combination is the most popular option for patients looking for a body sculpting.

Key Insights: How is Liposuction Performed?

Liposuction targets areas of stubborn fat accumulation that resist removal through exercise and diet. The operation is performed under general anesthesia and may be applied using several techniques detailed below. In all such techniques, fat is absorbed through aspiration with the use of a cannula connected to a vacuum machine. The duration of the surgery and the recovery time vary depending on the surgical method employed.

Where on the body can fat removal be performed?

Lipid extraction can be performed anywhere in the body where fat accumulation takes place. The most common body areas are the following:

  • Abdomen Liposuction
  • Chin/Submental Liposuction
  • Neck Liposuction
  • Arm Liposuction
  • Face Liposuction
  • Thigh Liposuction
Abdomen Liposuction

Proven Fat Removal Techniques

Turkish medical facilities employ the most effective techniques, including vaser, laser and more:

Traditional Liposuction

Traditional lipo is the most standard fat reduction surgery, allowing for the greatest fat removal at the lowest cost. The traditional method is a fat extraction process working through the insertion of a cannula in the fat removal areas. Because of the size of the insertion holes (2-3 millimeters wide), no visible scars are left.

Vaser Liposuction

The vaser procedure uses ultrasound-wave-technology to melt fat tissue prior to extraction, facilitating the whole process. The benefits of the vaser technique include more naturally-looking results and a shorter recovery time. For more information, make sure you read this article about the advantages of vaser.

Laser Liposuction

The laser method, also known as laser-assisted or SmartLipo, consists in the breaking down of fat cells with a laser prior to their extraction. The main advantage of the laser technique is that it reduces fat cells while tightening the skin. Due to its advantages in skin tightening, plastic surgeons prefer to employ lasers in areas such as the face, the neck and jowls.

What is High-Definition Vaser?

High-definition Vaser is the Non Plus Ultra of body sculpting. Unlike standard Vaser, High-Def Vaser uses resonance on top of ultrasound wave technology. This enables surgeons to extract fat tissue and perform body sculpting simultaneously. High-Def Vaser lipo is particularly effective as a belly fat removal technique, making it the preferred method of men undergoing a six-pack liposuction in Turkey.

Determine the Cost of your Liposuction in Turkey

The final cost of the operation cannot be established without a prior medical consultation. It can vary depending on the techniques employed, the number of areas to be treated, the amount of fat to be extracted, the medical condition of the patient and the surgeon performing the operation.

As a general guideline, you may consider that the average cost for liposuction in Turkey is €2900, while the minimum is €2500, and the maximum €3400. The price covers the whole hotel and hospital fees, transportation and all medical services, pre and post-operatory, consultation and aftercare.

In the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe, prices range between €3000 and €12000, not including hospital fees. The affordable prices for liposuction in Turkey attract more patients to Istanbul than to any other European city, which explains why Turkish plastic surgeons are usually more experienced than their European colleagues.
