What's Cosmetic Surgery? 

Cosmetic surgery is a surgical or non-surgical procedure that improves your aesthetic look. Cosmetic surgery is performed on all body areas, including the head, neck, and body, that need enhancement.

Cosmetic Surgery Vs. Plastic Surgery 

Cosmetic surgery prioritizes the enhancement and improvement of body parts. In comparison, plastic surgery prioritizes reconstructing damaged body parts due to birth disorders, injuries, burns, and diseases.

Who Can Have Cosmetic Surgery?

You're an ideal candidate to have cosmetic surgery if you're:

  • Unhappy with how your body looks or feels. 
  • Healthy, non-smoker, and not suffering from a severe illness that will impair healing. 

But you must be considered eligible by your doctor, depending on the cosmetic surgery you want

Cosmetic Surgery Treatment Duration

The duration of cosmetic surgery procedures varies depending on the treatment. For example, breast augmentation takes 1 - 2 hours. While facelift surgery takes 2 - 4 hours.

Cosmetic Surgery Side Effects & Risks 

Like any other surgical procedure, cosmetic surgery side effects include:

  • pain and discomfort
  • bleeding
  • infection

Cosmetic Surgery Recovery Time 

The recovery period will differ from one patient to another, and it depends on the extent of the procedure. Before you're discharged, your doctor will provide you with the instruction you need to speed up your recovery.

Most cosmetic surgeries need a recovery period between two to four weeks. Expect to return to normal activities within four weeks.

Cosmetic Surgery Success Rate:

The cosmetic surgery success rate varies depending on the procedure. For instance, rhinoplasty has a success rate of 85% - 90%, while Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) has a success rate of 90%- 95% 

Cosmetic Surgery Alternative Treatments

Best alternatives for cosmetic procedures are non-invasive, non-surgical treatments like:

How Does Cosmetic Surgery Work?

The procedures, techniques, and principles of cosmetic surgery focus entirely on enhancing a patient's appearance. Improving aesthetic appeal, symmetry, and proportion are the key goals. 

Since cosmetic procedures treat areas that function correctly, cosmetic surgery is designated as elective. Cosmetic elective procedures are performed by doctors from various medical fields, including plastic surgeons.

Types of Cosmetic Surgery: 

 What Cosmetic Surgery Involve?

We will plan and arrange the procedure to suit your preferences and needs and match you with the best cosmetic surgeon available in Turkey. There are a few primary steps involved in this procedure. Here is what you can expect:

  1. Final consultation with your surgeon

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a consultation with your cosmetic surgeon. During this session, you are expected to inform the surgeon about your medical history, allergies, and if you're currently taking any medication.

You must go through medical tests. Then, you will discuss the procedure in detail and share your expectation with your doctor.

2. Taking the anesthesia

Depending on your procedure, your surgeon will administrate local or general anesthesia.

3. Operation

Once the general anesthesia is applied, your surgeon will make incisions if needed, start the treatment, and close the incision with absorbable sutures.

4. Post-Op Instructions

Your surgeon will prescribe medication to manage the pain. You will need to do post-procedure medical tests to monitor your recovery.

Follow your doctor's aftercare instructions to speed up your recovery and maintain the surgery results.

What Should I Expect After Cosmetic Surgery Treatment?

  • When you wake up, you will probably be feeling tired, exhausted, and disoriented.
  • When you are discharged from the cosmetic surgery clinic, you will need someone to accompany you.
  • We also recommend that you have someone – at home – who will help you for a couple of days after the surgery.
  • There is a high chance of experiencing bruising and swelling in the treated areas.
  • Your surgeon will prescribe medication to relieve any discomfort and pain.
  • You are expected to wear the compression garment for a few weeks to ensure swift and proper healing in the treated areas.
  • After four to three weeks, you can return to do your normal activities. 

Things You Should Consider Before Cosmetic Surgery

  • A week before the procedure, you should stop taking Aspirin and any other medication that causes blood thinning.
  • If you are allergic to any drugs, you should inform your surgeon as soon as possible.
  • Avoid smoking before the surgery.
  • Consuming any alcoholic beverages can affect anesthesia. So it would be best if you did not take in anything alcoholic before surgery.
  • Follow your doctor-prescribed medication that adjusts your current medicines.

    While doing a price search for plastic surgery in my own country, I came across flymedi and had my surgery at esteworld for a much more reasonable price and I am very happy. The team and flymedi were very professional.

    Ana was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Ana made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    I highly recommended flymedi.com. Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
