The short answer to this question is “YES”. For a relatively long and detailed answer that would be useful for the readers who want to make an informed choice, it is best to start with the basics.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction, also known as lipo or fat removal, is a form of plastic surgery aiming to remove unwanted fat from different parts of the body including but not limited to the abdomen area (belly), back, buttocks, waist, legs, and arms. And a majority of liposuction patients would include the removal of belly fat in their treatments. This is no surprise, and belly is one of “the most popular” areas for fat to settle down!
But why would someone need to undergo liposuction instead of going to the gym to burn the fat? Is not it best to workout anyway to become healthier?
It certainly is! Regular workouts for sure improve the body posture and shape and also lead a healthier life. But for deposited fat, workouts may not be very helpful.
It is because fat deposited in different parts of the body in time may become “stubborn” and not disappear no matter how hard we work out. And when this is the case, liposuction comes for help. After liposuction, the fat tissues are removed permanently, which means that as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and keep your ideal weight, your body will not welcome and store unwanted fat. By removing unwanted fat from your body, liposuction also results in enhanced body shape and contour.
So, by having liposuction, you will get rid of unwanted fat and achieve better body contour and shape. In short, liposuction offers the best and durable solution for getting rid of stubborn fat and improving body contour.
Am I the right candidate for liposuction?
Liposuction is one of the most performed plastic surgery treatments globally. It is one of the frontrunners, coming right after breast enlargement surgery. Both women and men choose to undergo liposuction with the aim to get rid of fat and improve body shape.
As long as you are healthy with no medical condition that would prevent you from having surgery, you would be a good candidate for liposuction.
It is essential to know that liposuction is not a weight loss surgery. The aim is body reshaping. So, if you want to lose weight, then it is best to postpone liposuction until you reach your ideal weight.
How much is liposuction in Turkey?
The cost of liposuction varies greatly depending on the location, the plastic surgeon, the number of areas to be treated. But just to give an estimated figure, in the UK and most other European countries, the cost of liposuction is between £4000 – £6000. And this only covers the surgery cost; it usually does not include fees for consultation and aftercare support or other related costs such as accommodation and internal transfers.
The prices in the UK or elsewhere in Europe are not very affordable. Therefore, most patients look for options overseas. Turkey is one of the most popular destinations for liposuction. Because Turkey offers high-quality liposuction performed by qualified and experienced surgeons at very affordable costs. Turkey can provide affordable liposuction because labour and operational costs are lower in the country.
You may enjoy up to 50% lower cost for liposuction packages, including accommodation and internal transfers. Medical travel companies like MCAN Health go one step further for excellent patient care and offer an in-house nurse who would support you after discharge from the hospital, during your hotel stay in Turkey.
