Liposuction in Turkey


Diets and workouts may not get you anywhere after some point, Clinic Center can assist you to find a solution right at that crossroad! Liposuction, also known as lipo, is a procedure that is used to remove excess fat from different areas of the body to achieve a ideal, more aesthetically pleasing body image.

It is crucial to emphasize that liposuction is not a weight loss surgery; but rather it is a body contouring surgery. Lipo is not a treatment for obesity, cellulite or a weight loss surgery and can not be replaced with exercise and good eating habits.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that removes fat from the certain areas of the body using a special vacuum and is one of the most popular plastic surgery preferred by both men and women who are struggling with stubborn fat pockets. This condition may cause health problems also may make people feel unhappy about their body image and limit the freedom to dress in a desired way. Enlarged fat cells which are resistant to diet and exercise are taken out from the body with this surgery.

Lipo can be used in many areas including; abdomen, waist, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, neck, inner knee,  chest, chin, calves and ankles, and the amount of fat tissue that can be removed depends mostly on the health condition of the patient and the area where the fat is located.

Liposuction surgery takes about one to four hours depending on the extent of the procedure and is performed under general anesthesia. For the surgery, a narrow tube is inserted into a small incision nearby the targeted area. Then this tube is attached to a strong vacuum which is drawn back and forth within the excess fat in order to draw it out while keeping the blood vessels and nerves intact.

There may be some pain, swelling and bruising after the procedure and your doctor may suggest wearing a compression garment to help hold the tissue together and provide support for two to four weeks. You should be able to return to work in just a few days and resume normal activity in about a week or two. The final results will be noticeable after three months.

Liposuction can be performed alone or along with other plastic surgery procedures, such as a facelift, breast reduction or a tummy tuck. Click here to learn more about tummy tuck Turkey.

Liposuction Recovery in Turkey

During the recovery period it is essential to follow the instructions of your surgeon carefully. Most patients can return to work within a few days and return to routine activities after about three weeks. 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 to fully subside and as it does, new body contour and enhanced self-image should continue to develop. Also, temporary drains may be placed on incisions beneath the skin to remove any excess blood or fluid. Click here to learn more about pre and post-operation instructions for liposuction Turkey.

I traveled to Turkey with Clinic Center in October 2017 to have a tummy tuck with liposuction. I had an amazing experience from start to finish. To start off with before I made my decision to go abroad for surgery, I was communicating back and forth with a few different clinics in London and I just couldn’t make a decision and was not 100% sure as the before and after results, I had been shown was not what I was looking for.

Once I had decided that I wanted to improve the way my body presented, it was a matter of finding a surgeon who understood my needs, worked on bodies that looked like mine (black/brown skin that scares easily, petite with curves that needed refining) with great success and, not overwhelm me with useless information and suggestions of interventions that I do not feel I need. The arrangements were pretty straightforward.

Sarina, UK

Treatment was successful. Surgeon very professional and well known individual. Preparation for surgery was thorough. Was given chance to ask questions and they were answered accurately. Recovered sooner than expected. Clinic was clean and modern. Receptionists were nice. Located near hotel and can be reached from there easily. Staff were lovely.

Bianca, Switzerland

Came to Clinic Center to have a breast augmentation and lipo with fat transfer. I can honestly say the whole exprience has been amazing. From the airport transfers to after surgery, the painent coordinators, nurses have been amazing. I will definetley recommend Clinic Center to anyone having surgery.

April, USA

From when I first made contact with the clinic the communication was excellent, always responding promptly to any questions and reservations I had. The surgeon we had Dr Ihsan Basaran is a magician. I am thrilled with the results so far the koc University hospital is wonderful they give you a full medical review before your op and are quite attentive through out your stay. The only negative I have is the pain management after the op was a bit tough for me they are not big in pain killers here so if you are sensitive like I am, Id strongly advice you to bring your own as paracetamol and ibuprofen was not enough for me having had a lot of lipo and a BBL. Overall I’m very happy with the experience so far. I have had cosmetic surgery else where and it was nowhere near as good as the service I received. I’ll definitely be back as I have other work in want done. Thank you to all of the staff that helped me whilst I was in Istanbul.
