Turkey is a treasure trove of traditions, spices, street food delights and destinations for any intrepid tourist. It’s a mix between the familiar and the exotic, ranging from the bustling streets of Istanbul to the serene and relaxed Roman ruins spread around Turkey’s Western and Southern coast. Turkey is a fairly large country with 75 million inhabitants. The country spreads between Europe and Asia, with 97% of the country on the Asian side – Asian Turkey. Turkey is encircled and enjoys access to three different seas: The Black Sea, The Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean. Istanbul is the largest city in Turkey and the largest city in Europe, regarding population – It has over 14 million people.
Turkey’s medical infrastructure has improved greatly beginning with the early 2000s and now is one of the biggest medical tourism hubs in Europe and Asia. Turkey has the largest number of JCI-accredited hospitals, second only to the USA and hospitals are more often than not part of international healthcare groups, following strict European protocols and regulations. Turkey has 28.000 medical institutions spread across the European and Asian side but some of the biggest private hospitals and medical centres are in Istanbul, Ankara, Antalya and Bodrum – these also happen to be some of the best tourist destinations in Turkey.
Bodrum is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Turkey, with its sandy beaches and small streets littered with traditional shops and elegant restaurants. The town used to be called Halicarnassus, and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is one of the World’s Seven Ancient Wonders. Bodrum also features a castle built by the crusaders in the 15th century.
Istanbul is the home of several architectural treasures, including the Blue Mosque. The Blue Mosque was built on the orders of Sultan Ahmed between 1609 and 1616 and the Sultan’s body still resides within the mosque. The high ceiling is lined with more than 20000 handmade ceramic tiles, hence the name – The Blue Mosque.
Pamukkale, meaning “The Cotton Castle” in Turkish is a surreal destination in the country’s western region of Denizli, world renowned for its white terraces with warm spring water. The ancient Greek city of Hierapolis was built over the springs and Pamukkale was a renowned destination in antiquity as well. Tourists can visit the ancient Roman and Greek ruins of the baths, temples and theatres dating to the second century BC.

● You can change any sort of currency into the Turkish Lira – the Turkish currency just about everywhere. Most supermarkets and shops also accept credit cards.

● Driving in Turkey can be a hassle sometimes, but very pleasurable at other times. Roads are usually in good shape and some roads actually lack traffic, so it can be a relaxing experience. In Turkey, people drive on the right, so that’s a detail you will need to keep in mind. In some areas, villagers made cardboard and marker pen signs in order to help lost tourist on their way.

● Turkish street food is very diverse, from the simple bagel-type snack Simit to the familiar pizza-type Lahmacun, there are tons of variants to just about anything.
● Turkish coffee is world renowned, but it’s also a bit different than say, its American counterpart - It is usually a strong coffee with a rich aroma, served very hot from a small traditional cup. Be careful not to drink any of the coffee grounds still in the cup.
● Turkish delight, as the name suggests, can be a really sweet delight for tourists. It is made from sugar, starch and just about any fruit or aroma imaginable, including walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, dates, lemon, orange, rosewater and many others. Turkish delight is usually served with coffee and it became popular all around the world, including in the Balkans region and as far as Brazil and North America.
Breast implant surgery, also known as a “boob job” is a type of breast augmentation in which a prosthesis is used to change the shape, size and texture of a woman’s breast.
Breast implants are not recommended for patients that suffer from any type of infection in the body, women who are breast feeding or pregnant and women battling cancer.
The patient should not take any medications containing aspirin, vitamin E, anti inflammatory medication or ibuprofen for at least 10 days before the surgery. Smoking is prohibited for at least 2 weeks before and after the surgery as it can interfere with the anaesthesia. Alcohol is prohibited at least 1 week before and after the surgery.
Firstly, the surgeon will discuss the procedure with the patient and decide on the type of implant, incision site and the final location of the implant. A mammography is necessary before the procedure can begin. Any irregularities in the breast tissue can interfere with the surgery.
The patient is then administered general anaesthesia and the surgeon can begin creating the necessary incisions and the pockets where the implants will be placed.
The incision can be done around the areola, in the armpit, along the lower portion of the breast or through the navel.
There are three types of breast implant surgery, according to the placement of the prosthesis:
● Subglandular breast implants
● Submuscular breast implants
● Subpectoral breast implants
Under muscle breast implants seems to be one of the most popular breast implant options as it has a positive effect on the look and feel of the breast, as well as on the post-op recovery time.
Under the muscle best suited for:
● Patients with limited breast tissue to cover the prosthesis
● Patients with little or no drooping of the bust
● Thin women
Over the muscle best suited for:
● Patients with enough breast tissue to cover the implant entirely
● Patients with drooping breasts that wish a larger bust
● Patients looking for a faster recovery period.
Once the implants are placed in their final position, the incisions are sutured up and the area is bandaged in order to prevent infection and bleeding.
Local or General anesthetic
Usually overnight stay is not required
5 to 7 days
Around 1 hour
5 to 7 days
2 - 3 weeks
There are two types of breast implants:
● Silicone breast implants
● Saline breast implants
Some of the most popular breast implant shapes are conical breast implants, round breast implants and teardrop (anatomical) breast implants.
The patient can usually return to work and normal activities in around 5-7 days. Physical exercise is allowed around 2-3 weeks after surgery. During the recovery period the patient will be provided with a medical bra and a set of instructions from the doctor. These instructions need to be followed very carefully in order to ensure the success of the procedure.
Scars depend heavily on the area where the incision will be made. Scars made in the inframammary fold will fade away in a couple of months but they will never disappear completely.
A 2017 survey on breast implant complications sets the rate at around 2%. Complications can include:
● Developing capsule contracture
● Difficulty in breast feeding
● Implant ruptures
● Breast ptosis
The patient may feel nausea from general anaesthesia, inflammation, bruising and a lot of swelling during the first 2 or 3 weeks after surgery. Painkillers can be used to soothe some of these post-operatory effects.
A survey based on 225 breast implant reviews sets the satisfaction rate at 98%.
Women experience a higher self esteem, an increase in libido, higher feelings of attractiveness and a general increase in life satisfaction after a breast implant surgery.
Types of Breast Implants
Traditional Silicone Gel Breast Implants
Traditional silicone gel breast implants are made from silicone gel. These implants are approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for use in breast reconstruction procedures as well as breast enhancement surgery for patients over the age of 22. Silicone gel implants feel more lifelike, mimicking natural breast tissue compared to saline solution implants.
Form Stable Implants
Form stable breast implants, also known as “Gummy Bear Implants” or highly cohesive silicone gel breast implants are made from a highly cohesive gel that makes them firmer and thicker compared to traditional silicone gel implants. These types of implants are becoming more and more popular among patients due to the results they offer.
Saline Breast Implants
Saline breast implants are implants filled with sterile salt water. These implants usually less popular among patients nowadays.
