How can liposuction enhance your life?
Cardio exercise is great, but even the highest incline or most steps can’t address some of the body’s most stubborn arera of fat. Every size is beautiful – yet even with the most balanced lifestyle and workout routine. Whether in the mirror, or in your “favourite black dress” for a night out – our surgeons have the experience and meticulous technique to help you dazzle from every angle and discover The Best You.
You can have liposuction under general anesthesia, or with IV sedation. A small incision will be made by the surgeon to insert a cannula. The surgeon will loosen the fat cells and vacuum them out. Patients often combine liposuction and other treatments such as fat grafting or a Brazilian Butt Lift.

Dr. Akyurekli's Transformation
Before and after Liposuction
My turn! Dr. Deniz Akyurekli decides to go for Liposuction
Listen to him speak!
Why did I decide to have liposuction now?
After years of providing liposuction, I finally decided to have it done myself. My motivation was similar to the reasons that have motivated countless others to have liposuction in this area. I have a good diet, stable weight and I exercise regularly, but the fat under my chin wasn’t going anywhere and I felt it aged me at a time in my life when I felt a bit age-sensitive.
What made me a good candidate?
Being in good health and having good skin elasticity and not much in terms of jowls along the jawline, I was a good candidate for liposuction in the submental region (area under the chin).
The Liposuction Procedure…
I put my trust in my talented plastic surgery colleague. After marking the area to be treated, I made myself comfortable in the treatment chair.
The anesthetic solution was administered gradually to expand the fat and numb the area. This felt like a tightness under the chin and the skin felt numb. Three small puncture wounds, one under the chin and one below each earlobe. Then, a small thin tube called a canula was inserted in the three areas and used to suction out the fat without any pain.
The whole procedure took about 1 hour and in the end I felt great. I had the procedure at the end of a work day on a Friday and I was back to work on Monday. Recovery was pretty easy and I only felt a little tender, but nothing too noticeable.
For the next 3 months, it felt a bit weird to shave in the area due to numbness but this gradually resolved.
I have to say, I love it! It was quick, easy and had very little downtime. The result was what I expected – fantastic!
WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
On the day of the surgery, I went home and relaxed for a couple of hours before going for a short walk. The next day was even better, and I walked more and even drove. I only used Tylenol for pain which I'm not even sure was needed, but I was being proactive, for the day of surgery and the next day only. The only struggle I had was doing up the garment for the first 2 days. Every day was better and better enabling me to get back into my routine within just a few days. It's been 6 weeks since my surgery but immediately I felt newfound confidence, I can wear the clothes I want to and feel great doing it! I was told I would have a flat tummy and that's exactly what I got. I couldn't be happier, it was such an amazing experience with fantastic results. My only regret is not doing this sooner."

For the initial 2 weeks, you will need to rest and over time the discomfort will subside, and compression garments will be required.
