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.

Calf augmentation surgery is a cosmetic procedure which uses calf implants in order to enhance the lower portion of a patient’s legs. Patients who have a smaller lower leg due to an injury, disease or both. The calf implants procedure is a great way to minimize the discomfort of deformity and to provide the patient with more aesthetically pleasing lower legs.
Calf implants surgery is considered by some to be reconstructive surgery, although the leg’s functions are not improved or restored in any way – the only goal of this procedure is to provide the lower legs with a normal looking appearance.
Although calf augmentation surgery is one of the least popular procedures among plastic surgeons, it is also one of the most satisfying procedures among patients. It is particularly satisfying if performed by experienced surgeons. Patients may consider calf implants options abroad, to find cost-effective treatment packages as well as skilled and experienced surgeons in countries such as Turkey. Mainly when the priceadvantage is achieved apart from the success of the surgery, patients can quickly answer yes to the question 'Is it worth it?'
Calf augmentation through calf implants surgery is recommended for a wide range of individuals, including bodybuilders, patients who suffered trauma or injury to their lower legs or patients have skinny legs or generally dissatisfied with the look of their calves.
Heavy smokers or heavy drinkers who are unwilling to quit are not good candidates for calf augmentation through calf implants surgery, as in any surgical procedure. Smoking and heavy drinking can have a negative effect and create dangerous outcomes on the body's healing process, thus on the results of the system itself. Other contraindications include patients suffering from morbid obesity, heart disease, lung disease or diabetes.
While preparing the calf implants surgery, patients need to avoid smoking at least a month before the procedure. Omega 3 capsules, anti-inflammatory medicines, blood thinners such as aspirin, and herbal teas also need to be avoided for at least 2 weeks before the procedure is set to begin.
Calf implants surgery is quite similar to any implant surgery. Patients and surgeons decided about having two implants in one leg or just one implant in each before the surgery. The patient’s legs are measured and necessary medical tests have been applied. Based on the measurements, implants are ordered and sterilized in order to insert during the surgery.
Calf augmentation through calf implants surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, but in some cases, intravenous sedation can also be used. Once the anesthesia kicks in, calf implants surgeons create small incisions generally in the creases behind the knee. A special type of instrument is used at this stage, to create a pocket between the fascia and the muscle tissue underneath. The pocket must be big enough for the implant to fit in but small enough so the implant will be secured. The surgeon will then check the patient’s legs, with the implants in place. If the desired position and result is achieved, the incisions are stitched back together. If not, the surgeon can make little adjustments. The area is then wrapped in bandages and a compression garment is applied. Sometimes drains can be placed as well, in order to facilitate healing and the removal of unwanted fluids from the surgery area.
1 night stay in the hospital is required
1 to 2 hours
During the first 12 hours of the calf implants recovery period, the patient's legs must be kept in an elevated position. Surgeons will give the compression bandages that patients will need to keep on for two weeks post-surgery, according to the ISAPS (The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery). During the second week of the calf implants recovery period, patients can return to minimum physical activity and work (if the job requires minimum effort).
Heavy lifting, standing and/or walking for long periods need to be avoided for at least 3 weeks after the calf implants surgery. Most patients take 3 weeks off work for this procedure to get a comfortable recovery period. Patients also need to follow the doctor's instructions carefully. The legs need to be massaged daily in order to avoid capsular contracture.
Calf implants surgery risks and complications can include:
● Capsular contracture
● Infection of the operation area
● Unfavorable scarring
● Excessive bleeding
● Skin Discoloration
● Rupture or misplacement
● Revision surgery
Calf implants surgery side effects can include:
● Pain which can be soothed with painkillers
● Temporary numbness
● Side effects from the anesthesia
Calf implant surgery reviews set the average success rate at 97,2%.
After around two weeks, patients will notice less bruising and swelling and feel their skin begin to adjust to the implants. The results of this procedure are visible immediately, but it will take some time for the legs to heal and reach their final form and contour.
Can Calf Implants Surgery Be Combined with Another Procedure?
Yes, liposuction, thigh lift, and cellulite treatment are popular choices to be combined with calf implants.
When Can I Resume Sports Or Exercise?
Patients can engage in any sports 8 weeks after the calf implants surgery, waiting patiently and carefully is of great importance during recovery.
Will There Be Scars?
Yes, there will be scars, but they will be hidden in line with the natural creases of the leg area, so they won’t be visible.
