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

Hymenoplasty surgery, also known as hymenorrhaphy or hymen reconstruction surgery, is a medical procedure that is performed to restore the hymen.The hymen is a small membrane positioned close to the entry point of the vagina. There is no function of the hymen for the human body. Generally, females have an intact hymen before having intercourse, but there are exceptions.

What causes the hymen to break? 
Sexual intercourse is the initial main reason for the hymen to rupture. In some cases, masturbation can also cause the rupture of the hymen. Some of the heavy physical activities may cause the rupture of the hymen as well, such as horseback riding, riding a bicycle, exercise, or sports. Also, the hymen can be ruptured as a result of trauma, a heavy fall, or simply tampon use.

Why do women from all around the world want their hymen “back”? 
There are several reasons for a woman to decide on a hymen reconstruction surgery:
● Cultural or religious requirements – In some cultures before the marriage, the woman is expected to be a virgin. Therefore, she is inspected.Women can choose hymenoplasty to regain their intact hymen. 
● Healing from sexual abuse –Women who are the survivors of sexual assault may decide on having a hymen reconstruction surgery or hymenoplasty surgery.Hymenoplasty surgery has the role of empowering the woman and restoring their old stronger self. 
● Accidental rupture – Hymen can be ruptured by using a tampon in addition to some physical activities.Women can opt for hymenoplasty surgery a few days before marrying. ● Revirginization – Certain women, have this procedure in order to offer their partners a special gift.

Preparation

Before the hymenoplasty operation, doctors perform examinations to check for hepatitis or genital infections such as ureaplasma, mycoplasma, or chlamydia. Doctors also look for the inflammatory diseases that might influence the genital area. Also, the hymenoplasty is suggested at least a week before the menstruation.

How It Is Performed

Hymenoplasty surgery can be performed in several different methods, such as:

● The first technique is the simplest – the edges of the hymen are simply stitched together. After this procedure, patients might feel pain and bleeding during sexual intercourse.
● With the second technique, a flap of the vaginal mucosa is used to repair the hymen. This operation’s effects remain for around a week.
● With the third technique, the hymen is reconstructed from membranous vestiges or caruncles. This technique is the most common and most efficient one.

Hymenoplasty is mostly performed with local anesthesia. However, some patients may request general anesthesia. Usually, hymenoplasty lasts for around an hour.

Recovery

The recovery period of hymenoplasty lasts for around 4-6 weeks. Although hymenoplasty operation is a relatively easy practice, patients should pay attention to the recovery period as well. During the recovery period of hymenoplasty, hygiene is a very important factor. During the recovery phase, patients should observe their body for the signs of infection, which may involve sudden pain, excessive bleeding, and excessive tenderness. Also, during the recovery period, patients should avoid sexual intercourse as well. Additionally, after the operation, patients should avoid tight underwears for around 2-3 weeks.

Risks

There are several complications and risks related to hymen reconstruction surgery, such as:

● Infection 
● Excessive bleeding 
● Complications related to anesthesia use
● Over-correction, leading to problematic intercourse

Side Effects

Even though the side effects differ depending on the type of method used, patients might experience pain, discomfort, and soreness.

Success Rates

The success rate of hymenoplasty operations is around 96%.

Before And After

After the hymen reconstruction surgery, during the first sexual intercourse, patients might experience some amounts of bleeding and pain.

Faq

- Is general anesthesia required for hymen reconstruction surgery? 
During the hymen reconstruction surgery, mostly local anesthesia is used. However, some of the patients may demand general anesthesia specifically.

- Which hymenoplasty surgery technique is recommended for me? 
Depending on the patient’s expectations from the operation, the type of technique is chosen. While some methods provide more permanent results, other techniques last for about a week.
- Do I need to spend the night in the hospital? 
Generally, it is not necessitated for patients to stay at the hospital after the operation.
