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.

I'm very happy with the all experience since day one contacting the clinic
I’m very happy with the all experience since day one contacting the clinic .I’ve been in contact with Mariia Bondar since first enquire , and I must say she’s excepcional . She always answers my questions and try to help me the best way she could . Passing by the representative of the hospital that picks us up at the hotel on the day of the operation and takes us to the clinic, a big thank you too. Besides speaking perfect English, is a super friendly person and ver helpful . My doctor was Dr Ergen, which i can only say it was 5 stars in every respect . My procedure was vaserlipo , that I can say that I’m still swollen as only been a week , but very happy so far with the results . The only negative point is some and most of the staff don’t speak English , but Abdul even finishing his shift he made us comfortable about that as he said if something that we needed , we just call him and he could help on translating to the nurses. Well, thank Istanbul aesthetic Center and the staff .

I would strongly recommend Bookimed and 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.

"I think the experience would have been vastly different (in a bad way) if I weren't to have used them
The medical team were great, very attentive. They did a wonderful job of making me feel safe immediately post operation and when I can back for a review Bookimed have been excellent in this process, I think the experience would have been vastly different (in a bad way) if I weren't to have used them. As I was travelling abroad to get my surgery done, I felt lost and clueless in the plethora of clinics and doctors out there. Hugo done a great job of shortlisting the best clinics suited to me and produced a package which I would not of been able to do on my own.

The only thing to improve is that it would be nice to have some follow-up after the surgery is done, specially once you are home
The medical team is very nice but people should have in mind that only a few nurses speak some English, anyway this is not a real problem. I am happy with my results and the hospital is comfortable, modern and the rooms very clean and spacious. The only thing to improve is that it would be nice to have some follow-up after the surgery is done, specially once you are home.

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

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.
