About the Doctor

- Hello, Ercan. Our patients are interested in the modern methods of liposuction that you use. Tell us more about them.
Good afternoon Maria, it's very nice to see you again. We use many technologies for liposuction. First of all, this is a vibratory liposuction machine, a laser, and the Vaser ultrasound system. After liposuction, there is always a risk of a decrease in skin tone. To avoid this, we carry out a complex procedure, combining different techniques. Thanks to this, we manage to prevent the risk of sagging skin. For example, when I extract fat from the abdomen, I always use a laser to increase skin tone.
- Is it a painful operation?
Liposuction is an operation, in which tissue injury occurs. Now there are modern techniques that minimize trauma and pain. These include vacuum, ultrasonic, and laser liposuction. I want to warn your patients that we use only high-quality anesthesia, this guarantees that they will not experience any discomfort.
- Doctor, I think you have reassured our patients. How long is the recovery period after liposuction?
Usually, our patients return home 5 days after the operation. If we have done liposuction of the arms or abdomen, they can start working in a week. These procedures do not require large incisions, so they are less restrictive than, for example, abdominoplasty. After a major tummy tuck, I recommend returning to work after 10 days. If the area of liposuction is small, you can start working after 3 days.
About Weight Loss
- How many kilograms can be lost in one procedure?
There are medical restrictions on the amount of fat that can be extracted. We cannot neglect them so as not to harm the patient. For example, if a patient weighs 70 kilograms, then 5 kilograms can be taken without any problems. If you take more than 10% of your body weight, it can be dangerous. Therefore, we prefer not to do so. However, there is no need for a big fat loss, because even losing 5 liters of fat will already lead to a huge transformation. It will look like a loss of 15-20 kilograms. We take fat in the most visible places - from the arms, the abdomen, and the inner thighs. If everything is done correctly, we will get a very good result.
About the Result After the Operation
- What result can we expect after liposuction? How much will the appearance of a person change?
First of all, you need to understand that liposuction is not a method of weight loss. Liposuction is an effective body contouring technique. We have local fat deposits in the body. In the process of liposuction, we remove them and get a beautiful body shape. Without any doubt, the patient will see a very large reincarnation in the mirror and this will please him. Photos before and after the procedure confirm this.
When a patient loses, for example, 12 kilograms, this will be 5 kilograms of pure fat. That is, weight loss with liposuction is equal to twice the amount that a person loses as a result of diet. Thus, if your patients have local fat deposits, then the best way to give them a beautiful body shape is liposuction. This is body sculpting that brings amazing results.
- Is it possible that the fat will come back?
Yes, sure. After the operation, this possibility does not disappear anywhere. Liposuction is the perfect place to start. But if patients continue to overeat after we have removed the excess fat, then naturally the weight may come back. Therefore, they need to control their food intake and be physically active.
We always give advice to our patients on how to eat after liposuction. First of all, you need to monitor your diet, especially after dinner. If everything is done correctly and not relaxed, patients after liposuction will always remain in good shape.
- Let me ask you the most important question. How is it possible to come to you for surgery?
The most convenient and reliable way is to contact you. We have been working together for a long time and I think that this is an ideal option. It is desirable that patients give you their photographs, which you will send to me. Together we will make a detailed preoperative assessment.
We will also make video consultations with patients with your help. Most importantly, after the operation, they can always contact you to resolve any issues. For a long time of working together, we have not had any problems.
Your specialists take full responsibility for organizing the stay of patients in Turkey for the entire period of the operation, including transfer, hotel booking, travel. We are grateful to you for this help. Therefore, I think that patients just need to call and everything will be organized.
Dr. Ercan, thank you for such a high assessment of our work. We are always happy to help our patients.
