Why is liposuction in Turkey so popular? If we compare the countries of the Middle East, we will see that Turkey best combines these two factors – tourism and medicine. Today, going on vacation to Turkey, you can both relax and use modern clinics that ensure European quality.

According to statistics, in 2019 the number of foreigners who came to Turkey to provide medical services was 8% higher than in 2018. This increase is due not only to the high level of qualifications of Turkish doctors, but also to competent medical tourism organizations.

Before liposuction is performed, your doctor may run several of tests. They include: blood count, group and blood coagulation indices (APTT, INR), ESR, creatinine, glucose, urine, electrolytes (Na, K), vaccination against hepatitis B.

2-4 weeks before the procedure, you should give up smoking (or limit it significantly), follow the diet recommended by the surgeon, and immediately inform about infections and colds. If the anesthesia is general and not regional, then you should be on an empty stomach on the day of the procedure.
