It may sound a vague question or a question with too many possible answers. Actually, it is not! It is a simple question with a simple answer!
The best country to have liposuction is the country that is the eastern neighbour of Europe; the one that literally connects the west and east. Can you guess the country? OK, one last hint: the country that has one of the most stunning cities in the world; Istanbul! Yes, it is Turkey. It might be surprising for some but there is neither exaggeration nor favoritism here. It simply is a fact. And, I will explain what makes Turkey the best country for liposuction in detail!
What is liposuction?
But before we dive into details that make Turkey the best, let’s start with the basics; what is lipo? Liposuction is a plastic surgery that aims to improve body shape by removing fat in different parts of the body such as tummy, arms, waist, chin, thighs, and buttocks. The operation usually takes around 1 to 3 hours and is performed under local or general anesthesia. The results of liposuction may be permanent as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained. Therefore, it is one of the most popular plastic surgery treatments around the world, and it is popular not only for women but also for men.
How much does good liposuction cost?
It is such a popular treatment that this is one of the most frequently asked questions about liposuction. Yes, money matters! The cost of having liposuction may vary depending on the number of areas to be treated and most importantly depending on the location where you have your lipo. Just to give you a general idea; in the UK, the cost of liposuction is around £4K to £5K which would be about the same in the rest of Europe. Not so much affordable, is it?
And here comes another question that is asked by many patients from the UK just before they make their decision on where to have their lipo:
How much is Liposuction in Turkey?
The average cost of liposuction in Turkey is around £2K to £3K that is almost half of the price of lipo in the UK. And medical travel companies like MCAN Health offer all-inclusive options that include accommodation at 4 or 5-star hotels, VIP transfers, English-speaking patient host and after-care. Indeed, there is a jaw-dropping price difference.
Turkey offers liposuction at so affordable prices that the following question comes along naturally:
Why is Turkey surgery cheaper?
Actually, the right question should be: why/how Turkey offers affordable plastic surgery treatments including liposuction? I will explain this in 3 simple points:
- The support of the Turkish Government: The government of Turkey offers incentives for medical tourism in Turkey. Therefore, medical travel companies in Turkey can offer plastic surgery treatments at affordable and competitive costs
- Low labour and running costs: the cost of labour and running costs are way cheaper in Turkey compared to the UK which inevitably affects the costs in favour of the patients
- Purchasing power of Sterling (£) against the Turkish Lira (TRY): currently, £1 equals to TRY 7.80. Yes, Sterling is very powerful against the Turkish Lira which puts patients from the UK in a highly favourable position when it comes to getting any kind of service in Turkey including accessing plastic surgery treatments
Why is Turkey best for liposuction?
Unarguably, Turkey offers affordable liposuction treatment. And yes, money matters but is it enough to make Turkey the best place to have liposuction? Not really! The competitive prices are like gravy sauce on a sunday roast or vanilla custard on a sticky toffee pudding!
The most important reason why people choose Turkey to have their liposuction is the fact that Turkey offers high-quality liposuction treatment performed by experienced plastic surgeons. The plastic surgeons in Turkey are not only well-educated but also highly experienced. Along with having local patients, thanks to rising medical tourism, plastic surgeons in Turkey get to treat a high number of patients from diverse backgrounds coming from all corners of the world.
Turkey also offers the latest technology liposuction treatments. Medical travel companies like MCAN Health work with experienced and talented plastic surgeons who perform liposuction surgery by using a variety of latest technology techniques including Laser Liposuction, Vaser Liposuction, Traditional Liposuction.
In short, offering high-quality liposuction; liposuction performed by experienced plastic surgeons by using the latest technology and on top of it offering this for very affordable prices make Turkey the famous destination to have liposuction. And it seems like Turkey will keep its leading position for some more years. At the end of the day, who could say ‘no’ to a sticky toffee pudding with vanilla custard on top? On that note, I will have one now!
