I travelled all the way from US by myself to come here and get rhinoplasty done, my surgery was a week ago by Dr Hasan duygulu he is extremely professional and excellent at his job. My whole stay was made very easy and comforting by Kate, Sultan and Enes. I have been coordinating with Kate this whole time from the start till the end. She has been amazing throughout and ensuring. They all were there for me when i needed them and even after. It was a great decision for me and i m totally proud of myself that i was able to find the best and proceeded with it. I thank everyone part of luna clinic and the hospital for your kind and loving hospitality. I will recommend coming to Dr Hasan to everyone and anyone without any hesitation

I would highly recommend Flymedi and Abud

I would highly recommend Flymedi. My mom had a gastric balloon fitted at the Luna clinic and everything went smoothly. When I was looking for a clinic in Turkey I found Flymedi as medical tourism, I contacted them by email and they got back to me in a short time. I was assigned Abud as health coordinator and I don’t have enough words to thank him. He’s professional but on top of that he loves what he’s doing and he does really care. As I said before I don’t have enough words to thank Abud and Flymedi and I’m so happy I made the right decision by choosing them. If you want to have the bed experience choose Flymedi and you won’t regret it.

Rhinoplasty 12 days ago- Luna Clinic- Dr. Hasan Duygulu

I had my rhinoplasty done exactly 12 days ago with doctor Hasan Duygulu. Before flying to Istanbul, I was very scared of doing this somewhere far from home but , from the first day of our arrival I knew I chose the right clinic; we met Sultan at the gate of the hospital, she was extremely nice and accommodating and organised, she comforted and still comforting me with answering every question and concerns possible and was with me through the whole before, during and after process which I am still experiencing btw. At the day of the surgery we met doctor Hasan, he is very nice and professional, I told him what I wanted and he took pictures of my face and showed me what my nose could approximately look like after the surgery and addressed my concerns and questions which were a lot btw :) he came to visit me right after I woke up and the next morning as well. The hospital was very luxurious and the nurses were very nice and all our needs were met perfectly, everything was super organised and easy. Today I removed my cast and I am very happy with the results as early as it is with the swelling I am very satisfied and I cant wait to see the final results which seem to be very close to the pictures he showed me. Thank you Luna clinic and especially Sultan for making this life changing decisions the best decision I made. The whole experience was easy, trusted and comfortable thanks to you

I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi.

If you are thinking about surgery in Turkey, I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi. Abud was my contact and is there for you 24/7. He was quick to respond and did his very best to answer every question and keep me calm in what can be, a new and scary experience. I would highly recommend and you can be sure you are lucky if he is your contact. The hospital was very clean and staff were very professional and kind. The doctor did an amazing job and I am thrilled!!

Totally recommend

The whole process went really smooth from the beginning, it was really easy to communicate with them. I had my mommy makeover done in June, 2021 and the only thing I regretted is putting off my surgery for some years because I did not want to travel abroad, but in the end it was all worth it. The prices are much lower and I was happy with my surgeon (Prof. Omer), he is such a friendly person and an amazing surgeon as well. I love my results and I've never felt so confident in my body, even before the pregnancy. I can recommend Flymedi and my surgeon in particular.

Overview

Excessive sweating or Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition caused excessive, uncontrollable sweating. Normal sweating has lots of benefit for our bodies. It basically helps to cool the body and it prevents us from overheating. However, people who have hyperhidrosis, sweat even when the body does not need this function at all. Most of the people who have hyperhidrosis sweat from one or two areas of the body. The most often excessive sweating areas are palms, feet, underarms, faceor head.

 

As it is a difficult condition, people always look for a successful excessive sweating treatment. There are medical treatments, as well as natural remedies for getting rid of Hyperhidrosis. The most common medical extreme sweating treatments are:

  • Antiperspirants— The first excessive sweating treatment the dermatologists use for this condition.
  • Iontophoresis—A device is passed through the ionized water to treat the excessive sweating of hands and feet.
  • Botox injections—Botulinum toxin A (Botox) is injected to release of a chemical that signals the sweatglands to activate.
  • Prescription medicine—These medications inhibit the transmission of parasympathetic nerve impulses
  • Surgery—Surgeons can use one of those surgical excessive sweating treatment techniques; 
  • Excision
  • Liposuction
  • Curettage
  • Laser surgery 

Preparation

Preparations for excessive sweating treatment will vary depending on the procedure to be applied. If you have just started treatment, you will be offered methods of excessive sweating that require less preparation before choosing surgery if none of them is satisfied. In surgery, doctors will tell you what to avoid before surgery. For example, tobacco and tobacco products, blood thinners, or some of the herbal supplements should not be used in the preparation stage of excessive sweating treatment.

How It Is Performed

Although there is increased awareness with the use of botulinum toxin injections as a non-surgical treatment of hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating, the results are generally not durable beyond 14 months. However, ETS (endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy) is a minimally invasive and permanent technique that has increased the interest in excessive sweating treatment. ETS is generally performed under general anesthesia and during the surgery, a portion of the sympathetic nerve trunk in the thoracic region is destroyed to treat excessive sweating in certain parts of the body (usually in the palms or face). Surgeons use a miniature camera to insert into the chest under the armpit and then they cut or otherwise destroy the nerve paths associated with the overactive sweat glands. This procedure usually has successful outcomes and is very useful to treat excessive sweating.

Recovery

Initial or non-invasive excessive sweating treatment options do not require any recovery period, but surgery does. Recovery is usually a couple of days, although patients may feel pain and discomfort for up to a week and need to limit their activity during that time. If the surgery has not been sufficient enough, it is also possible to perform secondary surgery or to use Botox or antiperspirants to control sweating from remaining sweat glands.

Risks

Some of the most common risks and complications of excessive sweating treatments are:

 

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Soreness
  • Damaging the nerves
  • Inability to tolerate heat
  • Abnormal heartbeat

Side Effects

There are mild to severe side effects can occur during or after the excessive sweating treatment such as: 

  • Loss of feeling in the underarm
  • Scarring
  • Bruising
  • Compensatory sweating
  • Low blood pressure
  • Muscle weakness (Botox injections)

Success Rates

Excessive sweating treatment options have high satisfaction rates from initial drug treatments to surgery. Experienced doctors play a big role in increasing the likelihood of satisfaction by offering the most appropriate treatment option depending on the patient's complaint and general condition.

Before And After

2 to 3% of Americans suffer from excessive sweating of their armpits, feet, palms or faces. Armpit problems usually begin in adolescence, while palms and floor sweating usually starts around the age of 13. If left untreated, these problems may persist throughout life and have an impact on quality of life. After excessive sweating treatment options, patients feel more comfortable and confident because they get rid of the problem that affects their lives so much.

Faq

What causes excessive sweating?

It is not accepted yet, but hyperhidrosis seems to stem from a minor malfunction in the nervous system. There's also some evidence that genetic susceptibility is another reason to have excessive sweating.

 

Is Excessive Sweating Treatment Painful?

No, non-invasive treatments have not any potential to create pain and patients do not feel anything during the surgery. If any discomfort such as post-operative pain is occur, doctors may prescribe medicines to release the pain. 

 

Are there any natural remedies for excessive sweating?

Natural remedies to treat excessive sweating include herbal substances such as sage tea, chamomile or valerian root. Acupuncture, biofeedback, hypnosis, and relaxation techniques have also discussed as potential treatments. Recently it is believed that eating a completely gluten-free diet can cause excessive sweating to stop. There is little research to recommend such natural remedies and they have not proven yet, so it would be better to visit a dermatologist to start an excessive sweating treatment by his or her guidance.
