We all have insecurities; perhaps you’ve experienced a life-altering accident or have been unhappy with a specific part of your body for as long as you can remember. These can make you feel insecure and uncomfortable in your own skin and impact the overall quality of your life causing disruptions in your personal, professional, and social circles. It’s only natural to desire to look your best self, and when there’s no other way to achieve that, many people turn to plastic surgery Turkey.
Plastic Surgery Turkey Overview
Plastic surgery Turkey can be for both functional and cosmetic reasons. There are two broad categories of plastic surgery:
This aims to restore normal functioning and appearance of a part of the body which has been affected by surgical treatment (mastectomy for breast cancer), physical trauma, burn injury or congenital abnormality. For instance, rhinoplasty (nose job) is reconstructive if it is for correcting structural damage to the nose, which may impair breathing for the patient. However, it can also be cosmetic.
Cosmetic Surgery/Aesthetic Surgery
This aims to improve the appearance of a part of the body by changing its shape, size, or position. Usually, there’s no problem with the functioning of the body part, but sometimes it can cause some medical problems. For instance, rhinoplasty is an aesthetic surgery if you want to alter the shape, size and length of the different parts of the nose because you’re unsatisfied with its appearance.
There are different types of plastic surgery Turkey that you can get, including breast enlargement, rhinoplasty, liposuction, tummy tuck, facelift, eyelid surgery and bum lifts, amongst many others.
Breast augmentation, commonly referred to as boob job, can be performed using round or teardrop implants.
Mastopexy, also known as boob uplift, helps drooping or sagging breasts to achieve fullness. It can be performed together with breast enlargement.
Large breasts causing neck or back pain and limiting physical activity can be brought back in proportion with your body frame by breast reduction.
The bridge, tip or nostrils of your nose can be reshaped by rhinoplasty. In case of breathing problems, septorhinoplasty is advised.
Surgical liposuction, laser lipo and VASER liposuction are available depending on the area and the amount of fat to be removed.
Abdominoplasty removes excess skin and fat toning the muscles on the tummy area. It can be combined with liposuction.
Rhytidectomy is the removal of lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth and jaws by tightening loose and inelastic skin for youthful appearance.
Eye bag removal or blepharoplasty is the removal of puffiness under the eyes and excess fat or skin from above the eyes.
Transferring unwanted fat from tummy, flanks, hips or thighs and depositing to buttocks makes them look natural with less risk of rejection as it is your own fat.
Plastic Surgery Turkey Journey
There are three phases of the plastic surgery journey. These are as follows:
Before arriving at the medical company for your plastic surgery Turkey, you will have to make the following arrangements:
Fill Out the Enquiry Form for Initial Consultation
To initiate the booking process, first, you need to fill out the online enquiry form, after which we will have an initial consultation with you. We will discuss the type of cosmetic procedures you are seeking, possible treatment options, and you can ask any questions you may have.
In order to get a medical assessment from our plastic surgeons and determine your suitability for a plastic surgery Turkey procedure, we might ask you to send us a few pictures of the concerned area. After this, we will send you a customized treatment plan along with a price quote for it. Before you make the booking, we can go over different finance options for aesthetic surgery.
Apply for a Visa
After you’ve made the booking, you should look into the visa requirements for medical treatment in Turkey. Citizens of some countries are exempt, while some can get a visa on arrival. However, others are recommended to apply for an e-Visa online. You can also get a visa from the embassy.
Flight Bookings & Hotel Arrangement
Once this is done, you’ll have to make flight bookings, and we’ll arrange your accommodation and transfers according to your package. You can let us know if you have any other specific needs so we can make the bookings accordingly. It is also possible for you to arrange the hotel and transfer privately for your plastic surgery Turkey.
Once you arrive at the airport in Turkey, our driver will pick you up and take you to your hotel. And the next day, you’ll have a consultation at the hospital, but first, you’ll meet the host.
Meeting the Host
On the day of the consultation, you’ll first meet your host or personal interpreter. S/he will act as the point of contact between you and your surgeon, accompanying you to your appointments and providing assistance during the recovery process.
Face-To-Face Consultation with the Surgeon
This takes place with your plastic surgeon, usually a day before the plastic surgery Turkey. In this, you can ask any questions that you have about the surgery. It’s better to prepare these in advance. Your surgeon will go through the procedure itself and give you an idea of how it will change your body. Here, there’s also a small chance of changes to your treatment plan. Your doctor may recommend alternative aesthetic surgeries to better meet your needs.
Surgery & Discharge
You may have the procedure the next day, and depending on the surgical procedure, you can either go back to your hotel the same day or may need to stay in the hospital for 1-2 days. The clinic will provide you with any support garments and medications that you need for recovery.
In this plastic surgery Turkey appointment, the surgeon will check the surgical wounds and, if needed, change your dressing. In this, you’ll also get details about the aftercare process, which you need to follow for normal recovery. After going back home, you can get free consultation online for your aftercare.
After you travel back home, you need to ensure normal recovery.
Following the aftercare instructions will help you get the best results from the plastic surgery Turkey procedure. If you encounter any problem during recovery, you can always get in touch with our team online or call us. On our end, we will be following your recovery for a year after the surgery to make sure that you’re healing normally.
Choosing Turkey for Plastic Surgery
The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) reported that more than 10 million people underwent cosmetic surgery in 2020; nearly 400,00 of these surgeries took place in Turkey. More and more people are travelling for plastic surgery Turkey, mainly because of the affordable prices made possible by the exchange rate, cheaper healthcare and all-inclusive packages.
Many of the surgeons performing plastic surgery Turkey have memberships of ISAPS, the General Medical Council, the British College of Aesthetic Medicine, and the Turkish Society of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons, etc. In addition, there are internationally accredited hospitals and clinics where the highest standards of hygiene and excellence are maintained.
Finding A Clinic For Plastic Surgery Turkey
When looking for a plastic surgery clinic/hospital in Turkey, you should ask the clinic if a plastic surgeon will perform your surgery. They need to be board-certified, and you should verify this by checking it out on the medical registers of the healthcare bodies.
Most clinics offer very low prices due to the inexperience of the medical staff or “hidden costs,” which they deliberately fail to disclose in the treatment plan. Here, too, you need to make sure to ask the clinic about all the things that are a part of the package. You shouldn’t feel pressured into making a booking, as that’s one of the biggest red flags.
You should ensure that your surgeon is covered by malpractice insurance and that the clinic is licensed. You can also see before/after pictures of patients, read their testimonials, and, if possible, speak to them either virtually or in person. As plastic surgery Turkey is life-altering and, in most cases, permanent, we encourage you to ask questions.
A good surgeon will always ask you questions to understand your medical history and expectations, and goals from the surgery to deliver the best results. Ask yourself if you can trust your surgeon. These things will help you in choosing the clinic for plastic surgery Turkey.
