Many of us desire a toned body with a natural-looking fat distribution that looks simply beautiful. Sometimes we make vigorous efforts to get our desired look, but some persistent fat cells make sure that we’re frustrated to no ends. This shouldn’t be the case when there is an option out there that can help, namely liposuction in Turkey.
A common misconception that prevails around the cosmetic procedure, liposuction is that it helps with obesity. This is certainly not the case. The reason why many people opt for this particular procedure is to remove stubborn pockets of fat. It can rid the body of fat in areas that are resistant to exercise regimes and diet plans. Therefore, one cannot see it as a solution for losing weight rapidly. At most, it will help enhance the contours of your body and balance your weight. Still, it is one of the most common procedures with more than 300,000 procedures alone being carried in the United States each year.
An essential requirement for those seeking liposuction is that they should have stable body weight. However, it is usually observed that the body fat gets distributed, most commonly, to areas such as thighs, hips, stomach, neck, and arms. The procedure can be performed on both men and women. Although there is an additional procedure called gynecomastia that men can undertake. It is when the fat gets accumulated under the nipples such that the man’s chest starts bearing a resemblance to that of a woman. Liposuction can deftly take care of that.
Through minor incisions, fat dissolving liquid enters those parts of the body where fat is to be removed. After that, excess fat is extracted from the body through the use of a vacuum.
Will liposuction in Turkey help me in any way?
Many people go through strenuous exercise and diet regimens to lose weight, and despite those efforts, some parts of the body retain the fatty cells resiliently, no matter what. This can dampen the results of your effort as the fatty area may stand out more than the others with you being helpless in the face of it. To resolve that problem satisfactorily, liposuction can be sought.
You will be able to attain a more shapely body and a figure that you desire. Liposuction works to produce subtle effects, but it can make a profound difference in how one sees themselves. It is also a part of the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure (BBL) since the fat that is injected to the buttocks is taken from the belly via liposuction. At Longevita, liposuction in Turkey will cost you much less than in the United Kingdom and many other European countries.
Moreover, the package doesn’t simply include the surgery cost, but it is inclusive of accommodation costs in four or five-star hotels in Istanbul, airport transfer services, aftercare, and meeting with the surgeon for the consultation etc. The same operation can cost four times higher in the United States, which is why liposuction in Turkey offers a better, cheaper yet high-package.
What Determines Whether or Not I Can Get a Liposuction in Turkey?
There are quite a few factors that are considered before a candidate is given the green light for the procedure. A few things that are evaluated while deciding on the candidacy of a patient, concerning their medical background, are:
Do you Smoke?
The ideal candidates for getting liposuction are non-smokers. However, if the patient does smoke, then he/she should stop doing so a week or two before the surgery. This is because the nicotine present in cigarettes can cause the blood vessels to constrict. This results in decreased flow of blood or any other helpful medicines to the target area. The healing and recovery times will be longer.
Are you Taking Certain Drugs?
There are some drugs that act as blood thinners. Their consumption can be harmful before the surgery. Aspirin or other anti-inflammatory drugs can increase the chances of bleeding. If someone has been taking them, then they should have the surgery later.
Do you Have Elastic Skin?
An important thing that should be kept in mind is that the elasticity of the skin determines the final results of your procedure. The ideal candidate has high skin elasticity, and in this case, the skin will give a smooth appearance as it’ll mould to the new body shape. Otherwise, wrinkles might develop around the surgical areas. In those cases, tummy tuck surgery is also recommended. Your surgeon should also recommend you exercises to strengthen the tummy area instead of getting a tummy tuck surgery. However, what’s eventually decided will be determined during the consultation session.
Do You Have Any Blood Diseases?
It is essentially checked whether the patient has certain blood diseases. If it is so, liposuction cannot be performed. Having HIV infection or hepatitis, for instance, makes the patient quite vulnerable during the surgery. This can potentially put their life at risk. Therefore, we don’t perform liposuction in those cases since the patient’s health is the most important thing for us.
How Much Do You Weigh?
An important aspect of determining whether you’ll be a suitable candidate for liposuction is the weight. It is not recommended for those who weigh more than 100 kg. In this case, where they are getting surgery, the patient is near or already at their ideal weight and are going through the procedure to get rid of resistant fat pockets only.
Do You Have Hernia?
Another situation where it becomes impossible to do liposuction in Turkey is the presence of a hernia. Those areas simply can’t be operated upon. The cannula used in liposuction can risk injury to the body in herniated areas which is why it isn’t done in their presence.
Is There Anything Else that You Should be Careful About?
Most importantly, a good candidate for liposuction in Turkey will have the right mindset before they even make the decision to get the surgery. The following will explain what that exactly means.
You Should Have Realistic Expectations from the Surgery
As mentioned earlier, many people mistakenly think that liposuction can be used for losing massive amounts of fat. That is not the truth. When you decide to get surgery, you should have realistic expectations from it and should not see it as a cure to obesity.
You certainly can’t expect to lose tons of weight. Many people think that if their current weight is 90 kg the, surgery will help them get to 80 kg. Nothing could be further from the truth. In order to make sure that the patient isn’t getting surgery due to any false hopes, we do everything that we can to clear up any misunderstandings. At Longevita, we provide consultation sessions prior to the surgery. In it, we put great emphasis on informing the patient about what to expect. This way, there’ll be no disappointment post-op.
You Should Be Open to Discussions
The best way to learn more about anything is through discussions. If liposuction is something that you’re getting for the first time, then naturally you may have many questions and even feel anxious at times. Therefore, an ideal candidate is the one who is open to discussions. Not just that, but they should also feel a sense of safety when being operated upon by the surgeons.
You can completely rely on their expertise and should be open to receive recommendations from them. They will all be in your best interests. Our plastic surgeons have more than three decades of experience in their fields. Since they are professional and knowledgeable about every latest trend in procedures, you can trust them to advise you with the most suitable option. They have been accredited with various certifications, corroborating their qualifications. Therefore, they will know what is best for each case so you can be completely at ease and be willing to listen to what they have to say.
You Should Be Aware of Post-Op Care
When you’re getting liposuction in Turkey, we’ll make sure to provide you with clear guidelines about everything, including post-op care. Detailed instructions will be provided to you. It is important because following them can make a difference to your final results. An ideal candidate should be aware of post-operative instructions before having the surgery, and they should comply with them.
A very common complaint that we get after surgery is regarding gaining weight back again. It usually stems from not supporting a healthy lifestyle with a good diet and exercise plan. Naturally, in those cases, the patients are likely to gain weight and get unhappy as a result.
Deciding to get liposuction in Turkey is not the only hard part. You have to become aware of the intricacies of the procedure, and that includes getting to know whether you can even get the surgery or not. Once you’ve gotten it, it’ll be required of you to maintain your weight so that the results can be long-lasting.
It’ll take some time and patience, but it’ll be worth it. You can expect inflammation and swelling to take place after surgery, but it isn’t a cause for concern. Both will subside in a few weeks, and with the time you’ll be able to see the results through proper care.
