What is saddlebags liposuction?

Saddlebags is another term for the outer thighs. Large pockets of fat are often located in this area, which can make the outer thighs appear wider and more protruding. The tops of the thighs can appear wider than the hips.

Saddlebags are also an area of the body that is difficult to target with a healthy diet and exercise programme. This area can worsen over time as we age and our metabolism begins to slow down. As a result, it is often a very unloved area of the body.

Fortunately, liposuction in Turkey is an option for eliminating saddlebags.

How effective is liposuction in reducing saddlebags?

Liposuction is a very effective solution in Istanbul for those who have been unable to lose their saddlebags through a healthy lifestyle. Liposuction is able to eliminate stubborn fat, while leaving you with a feminine figure.

Can I have liposuction of the saddlebags?

If you have tried to reduce the size of your outer thighs through methods such as diet and exercise, without success, and would like to have the fat removed, you may be a suitable candidate.

You must also have a BMI of less than 30. For health reasons, we cannot offer this procedure to people with a BMI over 30, as the risk of complications is too high.

You must also be aged 18 or over and be a non-smoker or be able to stop smoking at least two weeks before the operation and throughout the recovery period. You must have reasonable expectations of the results of the operation.

How is saddlebags liposuction performed in Turkey?

Saddlebags liposuction in Turkey is performed using a technique called PAL lipo. This is a very commonly used liposuction method.

Unlike other liposuction methods, PAL lipo does not use heat. This means you avoid external and internal heat damage, as well as the hallmarks of liposuction, such as skin rippling.

PAL lipo involves injecting a solution containing a local anaesthetic and a vasoconstrictor into the outer thighs. This not only softens the fat, but also reduces the risk of bleeding, haematoma and swelling.

Next, assisted liposuction is used to suction out the fat globules. This avoids damaging the stromal network and blood vessels, which reduces the risk of haematomas. A vibrating cannula is then used to ensure that the fat cells are separated from the connective tissue.

The final stage is redistribution, where the remaining fat is equalised and moved to other areas without being reinjected, leaving the outer thighs contoured and smooth.

The procedure is performed under AIVT anaesthesia. This is a more advanced type of intravenous anaesthetic. You’ll be able to wake up more quickly after the procedure and you’ll feel a greater sense of well-being.

What is the recovery period like?

After liposuction of the saddlebags in Turkey, it is normal to feel some swelling, which should subside after 7 to 10 days.

You will need to take at least two to three days off work to recover fully. You should avoid strenuous exercise for at least two weeks. After that, you can resume light exercise. You will be able to resume your usual daily activities after a total of six weeks.

You will be asked to wear a compression garment around your hips. This will help speed up the recovery period by reducing swelling and keeping your thighs in the best possible shape.

You will need to wear the compression garment at all times for three weeks, except when bathing. After that, you will need to wear the compression garment for a further three weeks, but only during the day.

The results of this cosmetic surgery in Turkey are immediately noticeable. However, it will take three to five months for the swelling to disappear completely.
