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.

Not Recommended For Gastrectomy

If you experience stomach cancer or tumor, have health or life-threatening polyps and ulcers, or suffer from morbid obesity, you may be qualified for gastrectomy. In any case, your professional will be taking the decision regarding stomach removal.

Number Of Trips Abroad

1

Discharge From Hospital

6-10 days

Duration Of Operation

Several hours

Preparation

Preparation for gastrectomy has a couple of stages. Firstly, when the decision about partial or total gastrectomy is taken, your professional needs to be aware of every kind of diseases and medical conditions that you are suffering, just as all the drugs you take regularly. Then, the ones that can affect your stomach removal surgery will be identified. Also, put away all blood-thinning medications such as aspirins are crucial, about a week prior to your surgery. Lastly, a few days before gastrectomy, you need to fast and not take neither food nor even a sip of water.

How It Is Performed

Gastrectomy has four categories
•Total gastrectomy – doctor erases whole of the sufferer’s stomach during stomach surgery 
•Partial gastrectomy – generally stomach’s lower part is taken from the sufferer
•Sleeve gastrectomy – left the side of the stomach is removed alone in gastric surgery, it is carried out generally as a weight loss procedure 
•Oesophagogastrectomy – both the top of one's stomach and some part of the gullet is removed Apart from this, there are two main techniques of gastrectomy, regarding the way the doctor accesses the patient's stomach. In the classical method, the abdomen of the patient is opened in order to carry out the gastrectomy. On the other hand, the newer approach is the laparoscopic gastrectomy, where rather than a bigger cut, small incisions are made, and the abdomen is entered with the use of laparoscopy. This strategy for stomach medical procedure results in a shorter recovery period, and the scar of it will be less noticeable.

Recovery

After a day or two from your gastrectomy can be a fairly distressing experience. A tube will be put in your stomach through your nose in to gather fluids created by it. For the following days after stomach surgery, you will have to remain at the hospital for your recovery period. Then, there comes a normal life with a completely new diet – the doctor will introduce you into details, but shortly, food will need to be vitamin-rich while high-fiber foods are forbidden. This eating routine may be needed for a few months after your stomach operation or even longer than that.

Risks

Operation of Gastrectomy is a complicated surgery, during which you may be exposed to some risks. Which includes infections, internal bleeding, leaking of stomach acid, and complications related to your digestive system. On the other hand, these complications are uncommon, and if you accompanied by a good professional, you won't be experienced during your gastrectomy.

Side Effects

Dumping syndrome is one of the most crucial side effects of partial or total gastrectomy. Many patients who treated for stomach removal operation are also experiencing it. Eating too much or choosing foods that are unsuitable will make your gastric system reacted with nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Nevertheless, if you use a personalized diet after your surgery, the dumping syndrome will be restrained. 

Success Rates

Gastrectomy operation’s success relies on the type of stomach removal carried out. As for partial or sleeve gastrectomy, the rate of success is estimated to be approximately 99%, with a 75% rate of success as for weight loss outcome. As for total gastrectomy, the 5-year survival rate is thought to be around 70%.

Before And After

The essential difference after gastrectomy is eating habit. Adjusting to it might take some time. Aside from it, stomach removal should affect a patient's well-being, regarding both health and (in the case of patients suffering previously from morbid obesity) weight loss positively.

Faq

Is Gastric Sleeve a Good Weight Loss Treatment?  Most of the specialists use a gastric sleeve or other techniques such as lap band and gastric bypass only if more traditional, non-invasive methods such as diet and active lifestyle fail. Therefore, sleeve gastrectomy is rather the last attempt at weight loss treatment. 

How does your Life Look Like after Gastrectomy? 
It relies on the scope of your operation. However, usually, patients get used to their new eating habits and can lead to a better quality of life. 

Is Gastrectomy a Good Method of Fighting a Stomach Cancer? 
It relies on cancer, its size, position, and improvement. Your doctor will choose whether stomach removal is an appropriate method for battling with cancer.
