The way we look and feel about our body has a significant impact on our confidence and mental health.
From getting a fresh haircut to styling out a new fashion trend, most of us take pride in our appearance.
So, if we become self-conscious of a particular area of the body, it can ruin the confidence we have spent years building up.
For some, particularly women, as we get older, a change in metabolism and hormones means we begin to naturally carry more weight.
And as we try to get back ‘into shape’, some people can learn to hide certain parts of their body that they’re self-conscious of, longing for the figure, or confidence, they once had.
But, there are ways to achieve the desired body shape you’re looking for once again; one way is with liposuction.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a procedure that involves the removal of unwanted fat from specific areas of the body.
Liposuction can be performed on many areas, including the cheeks, chin, upper arms, neck, breasts, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves and ankles.
Being a complicated procedure, only experienced surgeons must fulfil this type of surgery, as it involves intricate incisions and precise cannula insertion.
The surgeon will begin by creating a tiny incision into the area where the fat is being removed.
A cannula will then be inserted into the incision, which will suction the fat layer beneath the skin.
From here, the cannula will then be pushed and pulled through the layer of fat to break up the fat cells. These damaged cells will then be removed by suction via a vacuum pump.
A liposuction procedure requires around two to five hours to complete the surgery, which often depends on the size of the area being operated on.
So, what changes will liposuction make?
After understanding how the liposuction procedure works, you’ll most likely also be interested in how the process will change your body shape.
Firstly, it’s important to note that liposuction is NOT a ‘quick fix’ for fat removal or those with obesity.
Most reputable surgeons will, in fact, only perform liposuction on a patient who is a healthy weight.
Liposuction is only suggested to those struggling to lose weight in certain areas after maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
The main aim of liposuction is to alter the body shape to create a more defined figure, not as an easy way to lose fat.
So, if you were to go ahead with a liposuction procedure, what could you expect from the final result?
Below are some liposuction before and after images from happy MedicoTrips customers, that show just how much a simple change can make a dramatic difference to your body shape.
Liposuction Before & After
As you can see, the results following liposuction are very noticeable and can create the figure you desire.
It’s important to note that although the results are long-lasting, it’s vital to ensure that the patient maintains a healthy weight.
And with an effective treatment like liposuction, there typically is also a considerable price tag.
To undergo a liposuction procedure in the UK, you can expect to be paying anything from £5,000 to £12,000.
Of course, many people can’t afford to pay out this extortionate amount on a cosmetic procedure, so invest their time finding a more cost-effective alternative instead.
For this reason, cosmetic tourism has become hugely popular for people looking for more affordable surgery options, with Turkey being a top destination for cosmetic procedures.
And it’s popularity is down to many factors.
All surgeons in the country have completed the same training and experience as medical professionals across Europe.
As the country can also work on lower labour costs and operational fees, procedures can also be offered at highly competitive prices.
With highly qualified medical teams and lower cost structures, liposuction in Turkey allows many people to get their dream body shape for less.
With this in mind, if you’re looking to undergo liposuction in Turkey, you can expect to pay as little as £2,300 for this type of treatment.
And with a reputable aesthetic centre such as MedicoTrips, a patient can also expect to have accommodation and transfers included in this affordable price.
Here at MedicoTrips, we work closely with top surgeon, Dr Abdullah Etöz, associate clinical doctor of Plastic Surgery at Acıbadem Hospital Groups in İstanbul.
