Liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in Turkey.

Liposuction in Turkey is performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Your plastic surgeon will make a small incision in the skin, where a cannula is inserted through the incisions and moved back and forth to loosen fat. A surgical vacuum is attached to the cannula is used to help as power suction to dislodge fat out of the body.
