My experience was great!

I was worried that I would have my surgery in a foreign country alone, but Luna Clinic made me feel right at home. They attended to my every need right away, and I didn’t feel alone even for one second. Thanks for everything. My experience was great!

Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Overview

A hernia is a tissue that protrudes from a weak point in the abdominal wall. Your intestines may overflow from this weakened area. Inguinal hernia repairor inguinal hernia surgery is a procedure performed to repair and treat this hernia. 

Most often, hernia affects the inguinal and umbilical area, and it is a consequence of a weakened abdomen, skin tissue, and muscles. It can also appear in other areas like the groin and upper thi

Preparation

If after a thorough examination, the surgeon determines that inguinal hernia repair is right for you, you should know:

• You may need further medical evaluations
• You need to be informed fully and clearly over the risks and complications of this type of surgery
• Before the operation, you should stop any medication that involves blood thinners such as aspirin. You should avoid intaking anti-inflammatories, vitamin E or some herbal supplements
• You will be asked to quit smoking before and after the surgery to prevent its negative effect in the healing process
• Immediately after the surgery, you may need extra help to drive you home or for your daily activities

How It Is Performed

If left untreated, this disease can cause serious complications, and if you have any symptoms, it is recommended that you go for a check-up as soon as possible.

There are two types of surgical inguinal hernia treatments

The laparoscopic method or Laparoscopic treatment: 


The laparoscopic method or Laparoscopic treatment is a surgical procedure performed under general anesthesia with a tool named laparoscope and a special camera that allows the surgeon to visualize the hernia and surrounding tissue on a video screen. The surgeon will perform the operation with the help of cannulas inserted through three tiny incisions. A small piece of surgical mesh will be placed to reinforce the abdominal wall over the hole produced by hernia. When structures are placed in their proper locations, your surgeon will cover the opening with sutures, staples, or adhesive glue. This is a less invasive procedure, and it has a shorter recovery period than open surgery, although the risk of hernia recurrence may be greater with laparoscopic repair.


Inguinal Hernia Surgery:
For inguinal hernia repair surgery, the doctor will perform a deeper incision by suturing the hole in the stomach and tighten the abdominal muscles. Open hernia repair can be done under general, spinal, or local anesthesia, while Laparoscopic repair requires general anesthesia. This type of procedure requires longer recovery time and involves the risk of not being able to move normally for a period of up to six weeks.

Recovery

Inguinal hernia surgery recovery time depends on the type of procedure performed. Laparoscopic treatment is less invasive and is associated with a shorter recovery period (1 to 2 weeks) than an open inguinal hernia surgery (up to 6 weeks).

Risks

Inguinal hernia repair complications are rare, but they can occur: 
• Bleeding 
• Infection 

• Blood clots
• Difficulties at urination 
• Bruising and swelling 
• Recurrence 

• Pain

• Risk of injury for other organs like intestines, blood vessels, and bladder.

Side Effects

Inguinal hernia surgery is associated with the following side effects
• Pain or soreness in the first 24 to 48 hours after the surgery
• Difficulties at urination
• Difficulties in moving normally

• Wound infection

Success Rates

Inguinal Hernia Repair has a very high success rate if it is diagnosed and treated in time.

Before And After

After an inguinal hernia repair or inguinal hernia surgery, patients are transferred to a restroom until they wake up, and if they can walk, drink water and urinate, they are released from the hospital. Pain or discomfort is normal within the first 24 to 48 hours after inguinal hernia repair. After a laparoscopic treatment, the patient will be able to return to normal activities in about a week. Open inguinal hernia surgery is associated with longer and more difficult recovery time. A follow-up appointment is recommended two weeks after inguinal hernia repair.
