What is Liposuction?
Fat removal surgery is a surgical intervention that removes excess fatty tissue from specific areas of the body to improve its shape and contour. The surgery for fat removal is designed for individuals who are in good physical health but have stubborn deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise. The patient candidates must note that the operation is not a weight loss solution.
There are several different techniques available for fatty tissue removal and every one of these has its own advantages and disadvantages depending on the requirements of each case. The choice of surgical technique depends on the patient’s individual needs as well as the desired outcome. The most commonly performed liposuction techniques can be explained as follows.
Tumescent liposuction in Istanbul is the traditional body contouring technique, in which a sterile solution is injected into the targeted area to numb it, and the fat is removed mechanically by moving a cannula (thin tube) back and forth.
Laser liposuction in Istanbul uses heat generated by lasers to liquefy fat by rupturing the membranes of fat cells, making it easier to extract. Laser lipo is more likely to damage surrounding skin, nerves, and blood vessels than Vaser lipo, but the damage is most often minimal when it does.
Vaser liposuction in Istanbul uses ultrasound energy to liquefy fat before suctioning. Vaser lipo is more precise than laser lipo and, therefore, less likely to damage any skin, nerves, and blood vessels surrounding the fat.
Body contouring surgery is usually sought by patients with excess fat remaining in the body regardless of diet or exercise. You should be healthy, at a stable weight, have firm skin, reasonably toned muscles, and ideally a nonsmoker in order to have a surgical body contouring. Patients with health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, a weak immune system, or blood flow problems are not encouraged to have lipoplasty surgery.
Costs of the procedure can vary widely according to the surgeon’s experience and the exact type of procedure. Costs of surgical body contouring in Turkey and many other cosmetic procedures are much lower compared to Europe and the US.
In most cases, fatty tissue reömoval is considered cosmetic surgery and, therefore, not covered by health insurance.
Always inquire about the full price, which considers the price of surgery and additional costs such as anesthesia fees, operating room facilities and hospital costs, examinations, second procedure cost if necessary, etc.
During consultations, the following is discussed: surgical goals; medical history; substances used currently, including medications, supplements, alcohol, drugs, and tobacco; current health status; the expected outcome; postoperative care and potential complications.
Photographs are taken, and options for the treatment method are discussed, after which the surgeon recommends an appropriate course of treatment.
It is advised to make full use of the consultation appointment in order to make as informed of a decision as possible. It is essential for the procedure’s success to honestly answer all of the surgeon’s inquiries and openly ask about anything requiring clarification.
