Questions and answers

How long do liposuction results last?

Selçuk Aytaç
17 years of experience
Istanbul , Turkey
Estetik International

The results are permanent and last for a lifetime.

Will a stomach become flat after a liposuction?

If a patient’s skin is elastic enough, yes. But if not then we recommend tummy tuck in such cases.

Is it possible to perform fat transfer from the stomach to the breasts? When is this procedure indicated?

We sometimes do this operation. Some patients do not want to place any implants, so we perform a fat transfer.

I needed to have a spinal mri in Italy, and couldn’t find any clinic that could do it. It was either a 4 month wait, clinic never called me back, or they hung up because my Italian wasn’t very good. I contacted Bookimed and within hours they responded and put me in touch with a lovely woman in Milan who got me an appointment at a private clinic in Milan in 2 days. She accompanied me throughout the appointment and translated when necessary. Something I dreaded ended up being a smooth and easy process. Thank you.

Thanksfull to bookimed for help me for my surgery in my brain they support me by one of best doctor in that section and he advised me many choices of surgery and hospital offers . I hope see them in top always they deserve 5 Stars. 😊

После предварительного собеседования. Предоставиди выбор из несскольких клиник. Связали с представителем выбранной клиники. Дали контакты. Все дальнейшее общении и информацию получал напрямую от представителя клиники. Никаки предоплат не требовалось. Все договоренности были выполнены по заранее договоренным датам, без каких либо накладок. Договор на мед обслуживани заключался в клинике непосредственно перед госпитализацией. Спасибо сайту за грамотную оценку необходимых услуг и быстрый выход на необходимую клинику.

I had to book 3 appointments in a hospital at Istanbul for my brother and his wife, both with serious health problems. I have contacted Bookimed who had reacted immediately and put me in touch with Dr Emad Hussein. After listening to the description of the sicknesses of my relatives, Dr Hussein explained very clearly what are the medical documents to have for the day of appointment as well as all administrative steps to follow. Then he put in touch with Mrs Farah from Liv Hospital for the appointments and she has been very efficient and helpful. I do not know how to thank Dr Hussein and bookimed for the excellent service provided. Nadia

Очень и очень довольна взаимодействием с Букимед. Прошла лечение от рака молочной железы. В ноябре 2018 года летала на обследование в Стамбул, клиники Медиполь и Анадолу. Помогли с билетами, организацией поездки, всегда оставались на связи. Координатор от Букимеда имеет медицинское образование, может качественно проконсультировать по поводу клиник, врачей. Лично для меня это большой плюс. До этого я лечилась в Израиле, организовывала все своими силами и потратила несравнимо больше времени, сил и нервов. Буду работать с Букимед в будущем и рекомендовать знакомым.

Very helpful and nice people. They’re quick on response, and they give the best recommendations.

My experience with bookimad was great; the thing that I appreciate is the high sense of humanity of the staff, especially Dr Farruk Ahmed. He answer all my questions in time, he read my poor English and make me feel comfortable, such thing is so important for someone that suffer. I know they do their best to help. Thank you Dr.

From initial stages of contact with Abdul in Bookimed things went very smoothly. He explained in great detail the procedure, costs, extras included. Extremely efficient. The hotel was of a lower standard than I expected, but clean and food was very good. The surgeon was clear and straight forward and managed my expectations very well given my body shape. Nursing and care staff were exceptionally kind. I had a tummy tuck and liposuction, and results far exceeded my hopes and dreams. I would strongly recommend Bookimed and Dr. Ergin. And a special thanks to Abdul who provided support throughout.

Verified review. The patient underwent liposuction in Istanbul Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center

I am grateful to the manager Alexey, from Bookimed, for the support and assistance provided during my stay in Turkey. It's been a month since my surgery. The opinion about the clinic leaves much to be desired. The level is low, everything is very sherpotrebno. A simple conveyor without attention to patients and a turnover of op. There was no consultation as such, no one even asked me anything, the doctor just examined me, drew crooked circles at the waist, laid me down and did not even warn me that they were already immersed in anesthesia, even in the public corridor. When I woke up after the operation, they told me that for the BBL procedure they did not have enough fat taken from my stomach, although it was possible to take it from other places, it would definitely be enough, but no one spoke about this at the consultation. WAKE UP FROM ANESTHESIA! I did not get the desired result, for which I would have paid extra if the doctor had warned me about this during the consultation. The junior medical staff is not very experienced, it seemed to me, since everyone had a problem getting into a vein, they punctured all their arms and legs, at night it was very noisy in the corridor, just a bird market because of the nurses, I couldn’t sleep at all for 2 days. The doctor came into the ward for an examination, from the street in outerwear, even without a bathrobe! Inspected my stitches without gloves and with a strong cigarette smell. On the pain that arose from the previous operation due to edema, they told me that it seems to you and I just panic. There is no diet food in the clinic, which should always be after the operation. They feed 3 times a day, but heavy carbohydrates are the national Turkish food, there is no other way to order food for your money. They did not even take into account the documents that I sent in advance, that I have intolerance to some products. I stayed hungry and had bowel problems from the antibiotics! After the first day when I needed medical help and I still could not stand on my feet, they wanted me to go to the hotel, although according to the contract there should have been two days. As for the transfer, I had to force them every time and demand it. During the rehabilitation period, I’m already at home, at the moment I have a hematoma in the inside of the buttocks, to which they answered me in correspondence just to smear with bipanthen, which will not help for these purposes. This is called after operation support! In Ukraine, I had 2 plastic surgeries in private clinics at a much higher level! And I went to Turkey so as not to see negligence and problematic consequences! The result is not justified. Благодарна менеджеру Алексею, из Букимед, за поддержку и оказанную помощь во время моего нахождения в турции. Уже прошел месяц после моей операции. Мнение о клинике оставляет желать лучшего. Уровень низкий, все очень шерпотребное. Простой конвейер без внимания к пациентам и текучка оп. Консультации как таковой не было, меня никто, не о чем даже не спросил, врач просто осмотрел нарисовал кривые круги на талии, уложили и не предупредили даже что уже погружают в наркоз, ещё в общественном коридоре. Когда я проснулась после операции мне сказали что для процедуры BBL им не хватило жира взятого с моего живота, хотя была возможность взять его из других мест, точно хватило бы, а на консультации об этом никто не говорил. ПРОСНУВШИСЬ ОТ НАРКОЗА! Я не получила желаемый результат, за который я бы доплатила еслибы на консультации об этом врач предупредил. Младший мед персонал не очень опытный как мне показалось, так как у всех проблема была попасть в вену, искололи все руки и ноги, ночью очень шумно в коридоре просто птичий рынок из-за медсестер, я за 2е суток не смогла поспать вообще. Врачь заходил в палату на осмотр, с улицы в верхней одежде, даже без халата! Осматривал мои швы без перчаток и с сильным запахом сигареты. На возникшую боль от прошлой операции из-за отеков, мне говорили что вам кажется и я просто паникую. В клинике нет диетического питания которое должно быть всегда после операции. Кормят 3 раза в день, но тяжелые углеводы - национальная турецкая еда, другой возможности заказать еду за свои деньги нет. Даже не приняли во внимание документы которые я присылала заранее , о том что у меня не переносимость некоторых продуктов. Я оставалась голодной и у меня были проблемы с кишечником от антибиотиков! После первых суток когда мне требовалась мед помощь и я еще не могла стоять на ногах хотели чтобы я уходила в отель, хотя по договору должно было быть двое суток. По поводу трансфера приходилось каждый раз их заставлять и его требовать.
В период реабилитации уже дома, у меня на данный момент гематома в нутри ягодиц, на что в переписки мне ответили просто мазать бипантеном, который не поможет для этих целей. Это наз. после операционная поддержка! Я в Украине лежала на 2х пластических операциях в частных клиниках намного выше уровнем! И ехала в турцию чтоб не увидить халатности и проблемных последствий! Результат не оправдан.

Hi, ich hatte eine Bruststraffung mit Implantaten und möchte meine Erfahrungen gerne teilen. Ich wurde vom Flughafen abgeholt und ins Hotel gefahren, was super geklappt hat!Da ich erst am nächsten Tag den Op Termin hatte, habe ich die erste Nacht im Hotel geschlafen und wurde dann morgens von meiner Dolmetscherin Nevin abgeholt und in die Klinik gebracht die wirklich nur zwei Minuten zu Fuß entfernt war! Dort angekommen wartete mein Op Arzt Dr. Ergin Er schon auf mich um die Op endgültig nach meinen Wünschen vorzuplanen ich fühlt mich sehr gut aufgehoben! Seine Art beruhigt einen also mich hat sie beruhigt. Alles abgesprochen ging es weiter zur Blutabnahme die Ärztin für die Narkose stellte mir einige Fragen ob ich Medikamente nehme oder an Krankheiten leite etc. halbe Stunde später war ich schon in der Op. 3 Stunden war ich in Narkose die üblichen Dinge die sich kaum vermeiden lassen zb Übelkeit oder schmerzen nach der Narkose sind auch mir passiert aber dem sollte man sich im Klaren sein wenn man plant eine Operation zu machen! Genauso wie man nicht kalt kochen kann kann man auch schmerzen nach einer Operation nicht vermeiden, lindern durch schmerztabletten. Man bekommt Antibiotika und Schmerzmittel. Ein Tag später konnte ich im Hotel schon schlafen und zwei Tage später wurden die drainagen gezogen (unangenehm aber auszuhalten, müssen sowieso raus). Das Hotel sehr schön sauber riecht so lecker irgendwie und die Hotelfachangestellten super nett und zuvorkommend. Sie wissen das man eine Operation hatte und sind sehr hilfsbereit. Essen top! Man geht dann ab und zu so wie es der Dr. veranlasst zu Kontrolle ansonsten you need to rest und am letzten (7.) Tag geht man zum verbandwechsel und wird dann zum Flughafen von den zuständigen gestellten Taxen gebracht auch nette Leute sehr hilfsbereit! Ich habe nichts negatives zu sagen weil nichts vorgefallen ist was mich verärgert oder enttäuscht hat! Wer sich hier behandeln lassen möchte macht alles richtig 👍 ich bin sehr zufrieden und froh das ich durch bin 😁 An die Raucher man soll nicht rauchen ja, aber wer raucht sollte sich vorher um Zigaretten kümmern es gibt keine Automaten oder Zigaretten zu kaufen in der Nähe! Ciao 👋

FAQ about Liposuction in Turkey

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a plastic operation to remove a certain amount of fatty tissue through small punctures on the skin using specialized equipment. The lipo is divided into different types depending on the area should be operated (abdominal liposuction, buttock liposuction, neck lipo, knee liposuction, and so on).

BMI (body mass index)

under 35 kg/m2

Duration

1-5 hours

In-hospital stay

2 days

Recovery period

2-3 weeks

Who benefits the lipo?

The main indication for the surgery is excess fat that deforms the body contours. Surgeons perform liposuction locally, in particular on the abdomen, thighs, knees, neck, buttocks, etc.

The procedure is suitable for people who have excess weight with BMI (body mass index) under 35. For overweight people, lipo is an excellent option to get a perfect body and regain your figure factly.

Liposuction is best for people with the right skin tone and elasticity because it forms a new contour of the body without wrinkles.

A person must be over 18 years old and have good health status. Those with severe chronic illnesses cannot undergo this procedure.

What is preoperative preparation for liposuction?

Before liposuction, a patient undergoes the lab tests. They include blood and urine analysis, ECG.

A plastic surgeon examines a patient and discusses the volume of intervention. Then an anesthesiologist determines the type of anesthesia.

If there are no contraindications, the liposuction is assigned the next day.

What is the liposuction process?

Doctors conduct liposuction under local or general anesthesia. The anesthetic type depends on the location of the problem area and its size.

Then a plastic surgeon starts liposuction. A specialist uses a thin tube-shaped instrument called a cannula. Through the 3-6 mm incisions, fat is pumped out.

The procedure is carried out very slowly and carefully to avoid the nerves and vessel injuries, to save asymmetry of body contours.

The liposuction of one area takes 1-1.5 hours. If a doctor operates several areas, the duration of the procedure is prolonged up to 5 hours.

In some cases, specialists perform abdominoplasty after abdomen liposuction. It helps to achieve a better result and avoid asymmetry.

Find out more information on the lipo surgery process in the video.

What rules should I follow during postoperative rehabilitation?

Just after the surgery, a doctor places a special bandage on the operating area. It speeds up the recovery of tissues, reduces swelling, and improves skin retraction. This bandage is prescribed to be worn for 4-10 weeks.

The hospitalization after liposuction is 2 days in most cases. If there are no complications, and the area for surgical intervention is small, a patient is discharged after the procedure. In other cases, liposuction takes up to 2 days.

A patient stays in the country for 10 days. The sutures are removed in 7 days. A patient can return to the usual lifestyle in 2-3 weeks.

To maintain the new body shape, it is necessary to keep a diet and lead an active lifestyle — otherwise, the overweight returns.

What results can I expect after liposuction?

Liposuction results are not noticeable until the swelling decreases. In some cases, this process may take several months. Most of the edema (swelling caused by fluid retention) reduces in about 4 weeks, and the area where the fat has been removed becomes less extensive.

People keeping fit usually get excellent and consistent results. Those gaining weight after the procedure may find that their fat distribution changes. For example, people who previously have had fat accumulation in their thighs may find that their buttocks are becoming a new problem area.

What are the risks of lipo?

Any serious surgery is associated with a risk of bleeding, infection, and an adverse reaction to anesthesia.

The risk of complications is usually related to the procedure extensiveness and surgeon’s skills.

The following risks, unpleasant side effects or complications are possible:

  • bruising — can last for several weeks
  • inflammation — may take up to 6 months
  • thrombophlebitis — a blood clot in a vein formation
  • contours roughness — if the skin has low elasticity, the skin may look saggy and wavy
  • numbness — the affected area may feel numb, but usually, it is temporary
  • infections — rarely, skin infection may occur after liposuction surgery; sometimes it needs to be treated surgically, with the risk of scarring
  • kidney or heart problems — as fluids are injected during the operation, changes in fluid levels in the body can cause kidney or heart problems (therefore, there is a limit on the amount of fat removed)
  • pulmonary embolism — fat enters the blood vessels and lungs, blocking blood circulation in the lungs
  • allergic reaction — the patient may be allergic to drugs or materials used during the surgery
  • skin burns — the cannula movement can cause injuries on the skin that is especially characteristic for ultrasonic and laser liposuction.

What is the level of medicine in Turkey?

Healthcare is the key development sector of the Turkish government. The Turkish authorities are convinced that care for the citizens' health should be an absolute priority of state policy and spend about 77 billion liras for healthcare annually.

As a result, 28,000 medical facilities provide excellent medical care in the country. About 50 centers have certificate of JCI (Joint Commission International), the international improver of healthcare quality and safety across the globe. The index of certificates obtained is the largest. To compare,Israel has 20 JCI-accredited facilities, and Germany — only 10 clinics of this type.

Why is Turkey trendy for medical tourism?

Turkey is also a well-known country globally due to high-skilled doctors that undergo internships in American and European institutions. Patients from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, the UAE, Jordan, and Lebanon prefer treatment in Turkey to other places.

Highly developed medical centers and first-rate therapeutic services at affordable prices attract people from all over the world. Over 1 mln international patients travel to Turkey annually. So Turkey is among Top 10 countries with the most developed medical tourism sector.

Turkey is a top destination for medical tourists because of low-costs. You may save up to 50% on services compared to European countries or the USA due to the average local citizens' income and general price policy within the country.

What hotel services are provided here?

In Turkey, hotels of different price ranges and service levels are presented. The level of Turkish hotels is comparable to hotels in Tunisia, Morocco or Egypt. Most tourists choose 4 and 5 star hotels with all-inclusive meals. Such hotels have everything for a comfortable stay: varied food, a large well-groomed territory, animation for children and adults. Some hotels have their own water park, which guests can use for free. Budget travelers can afford to book an economical 3-star hotel with half board or no meals at all.

When is the best time to travel to Turkey?

The main advantage of Turkish resorts is the long beach season. On the Mediterranean coast, it starts in April and lasts until November. In the resorts of the Aegean Sea — from May to October. The most comfortable time for swimming is from mid-June to the end of October. A large influx of tourists is in July-August, when the air temperature is +38°C, and the water warms up to +27°C.

Do I need a visa?

Today the Republic of Turkey has visa-free agreements with 89 states. Some foreigners are exempted from obtaining entry visas, others are required to receive an electronic visa (e-Visa), and still others must apply for a visa at Turkish missions abroad.

What states need a visa for treatment in Turkey and what countries can cross the border free and easy read here.

What documents are required to apply for a visa to Turkey for treatment?

Visas for travel to Turkey require a number of documents. The necessary papers can be submitted 90 days before the planned departure. Lists of documents includes:

  • ID card
  • confirmation of online registration and filling out the questionnaire
  • certificate of income and availability of funds ($50 per day per person)
  • insurance policy for a stay in Turkey (original and copy)
  • 2 photos (5x6)
  • visa receipt
  • booking of flight and hotel
  • medical opinion about the need for treatment.
