Liposuction is a surgical procedure carried out to remove excess fat from under the skin of any part of the body. The removal of fat results in better body contour or shape. The procedure of fat removal includes the usage of vacuum-suction ‘canula’, a hollow-shaped pen-like apparatus or an ultrasonic probe which blends the excess fat into small pieces and eliminates it with the help of suction. You must pay heed to the fact that Liposuction is just a method to enhance the silhouette of the body and it does not in any manner, help to lose weight.
Liposuction is basically done in many parts of the body such as thighs, buttocks, arms, neck, chin, abdomen, back, calves, and many more. You can either choose to get the liposuction done in just a single body part or more than one body part at once.
In the year 2015, Liposuction became the most popular cosmetic surgery in the United States of America. In general, the number of men undergoing Liposuction surgery is very low as compared to women. However, in India, many men opt for Liposuction surgery without any kind of hesitance. That is why the ratio of women undergoing Liposuction to men is 60:40 in India.
As the Liposuction is becoming popular with every passing day, the cost of the same has become quite affordable in many parts of the world as well. Even the cost of Liposuction surgery in Turkey is highly-reasonable as compared to the well-developed countries like USA, Canada, UK, Singapore, etc. The approximate Liposuction price in Turkey is $1,300 to $ 4,000. Meanwhile, in the United Kingdom, the average cost of the same surgery is $3,200 to $6,500. The Liposuction cost in the United States of America is $1,300 to $4,000 on an average.
However, one important thing to keep in mind while calculating the price of Liposuction is that there are many factors which affect the final cost of Liposuction surgery. For instance, liposuction of the buttock will cost you much higher than the liposuction of the neck. Likewise, you have to pay more for the body parts where it is quite challenging to operate such as cheek or chin. There are many more factors influencing the total cost of Liposuction, but here are some of the most common of them –
Area of surgery

Liposuction and tummy tuck: The liposuction and tummy tuck are used for the removal of extra fat from the tummy. While liposuction is used to remove excess fat, a tummy tuck involves removal of excess skin. Although both the surgeries are different from each other but when done simultaneously, may result in enhanced effects.
Traditional surgery: This is the oldest and effective method for removing excess fat from the body. The procedure is done under general anesthesia. The general anesthesia is administered in the body through intravenous route. The cannula is used for scraping out excess fat from the body.
Laser liposuction: This technique of liposuction is done through a laser beam. The laser beam generates heat and liquefies the fat of the body. After the laser beam procedure, the liquified fat is extracted out from the body. This is a safe and painless technique which can be performed under local anesthetics.
Ultrasound-assisted liposuction: The techniques involve the use of a large volume of the tumescent fluid acting as an anesthetic, ultrasound energy, and heat. This procedure is effective in removing fat from the upper and side abdomen and also from the back.
Take antibiotics: The surgeon may prescribe antibiotics for reducing the risk of infection.
Pain killers: The patients may experience pain and swelling at the site of surgery. For reducing the pain and swelling, analgesic drugs are prescribed which can be taken as and when directed.
Wear loose clothes: After the surgery, the patient should wear loose clothes. It is because there is a bandage on the incision and tight clothes may compress the incision leading to pain at the site of surgery.
Physical activity: The best physical activity is slow-walking post-surgery. More quickly the patient starts walking, more the chances of early recovery. However, any movement after the surgery should be done strictly under the guidance of the surgeon. The walking accelerates the healing process and prevents the formation of a blood clot in legs.
