Istanbul is the biggest city in Turkey and In Europe, according to population – it has over 14 million inhabitants.

The city spreads on both sides of the Bosphorus – The strait that divides the Marmara Sea and the Black Sea. Istanbul also connects Europe to Asia forming a very interesting mix, both gastronomically and culturally.

Over 11 million tourists visited Istanbul in 2012, making it the fifth most popular tourist destination in the world.

Sights to See

The Blue Mosque
The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, also called the Blue Mosque incorporates Islamic architecture and Byzantine Christian elements in its design. It is considered to be the last great mosque of the classical period. The Mosque got its name from the 20,000 Iznik blue ceramic tiles used to line its interiors. The Blue Mosque is also the final resting place of Sultan Ahmed which commissioned the building in 1609, with work finishing in 1616.

Basilica Cistern
The Basilica Cistern is one of the most popular tourist sites in Istanbul. The Cistern is huge, with a total of 336 columns arranged in 12 rows. It was built in order to store water during the Byzantine time – in the 6th century. Most of the columns feature decorative carvings, as they were re-used from other classical-age structures. Some of the most interesting columns on the site are the Medusa stones, in the north-west corner of the Cistern.

Topkapı Palace
Topkapı Palace is one of the finest examples of Islamic art and architecture. The palace itself was built by Mehmet the Conqueror in the 15th century and has been the residence of Ottoman Sultans for over 400 years. The palace is a vast complex of richly decorated courtyards and rooms. The palace features a Harem, the Imperial Treasury room, the Imperial Council Chamber, the Second Court, the Third Court (the Sultan’s private rooms) and the Palace Kitchens. The palace became an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985 and has been described as “one of the best examples of palaces of the Ottoman period”.

Things to Know

● Tourists arriving in Istanbul will be required to purchase a tourist Visa – the procedure can be easily done online or at a visa machine before the immigration section of the airport. The Visa costs around 20 USD.

● There are 3 main airports in Istanbul. Hazerfen Airport is a private airport with limited traffic. Atatürk Airport is located on the European side of Istanbul and Sabiha Gökçen Airport is located on the Asian side of Istanbul. Usually planes land at the Atatürk Airport (IATA:IST) which is just 20 km from the city centre. From there a visitor can take a taxi to Taksim Square for around TRY60. Tourists can also use a local airport service called Havataş which runs express bus services every 30 minutes for around TRY11 to Taksim Square and Aksaray.

● Food and drink at the airport is quite expensive and may cost 4 times more than in the city. It is advisable to bring your own meals from the town if you have a lot of waiting to do at the airport. There is also a supermarket close to the airport metro entrance where you can buy reasonably priced food and drink.

● You can change any sort of currency into the Turkish Lira (TRY) just about anywhere across Istanbul. Most shops and supermarkets also accept credit cards for payment.

● Roaming fees in Turkey are expensive, but you can simply buy a new SIM card when you reach Istanbul and use it for the duration of your stay.

● Istanbul has a humid subtropical climate, so the summer months are generally warm and in winter temperatures differ from place to place.

Facelift

Facelift surgery, also known as a rhytidectomy procedure (literally translating as the surgical removal of wrinkles) is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the USA. According to latest data released by American Society of Plastic Surgeons, facelift surgery or face lifting is 6th most common surgeries performed in 2018 with the number of 121,531 procedures, after top 5 plastic surgeries which are breast augmentation, liposuction, nose job (rhinoplasty), eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) and tummy tuck (abdominoplasty).

Facelift surgery is mostly preferred by patients that wish to have a more youthful facial appearance. There are a few different techniques which can be applied during facelift surgery – usually, excess facial skin is removed, and the underlying tissue is tightened for a better and long-lasting effect. Facelift surgery is often combined with an eyelid surgery procedure for a better effect.

Facelift surgery can also be combined with the following procedures to enhance the youthful appearance of the patients: 

  • Eyelid surgery
  • Neck lift
  • Brow lift
  • Forehead lift
  • Fat transfer
  • Skin peels

Facelift Candidates

Facelift surgery is recommended for patients with: 

  • Wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Jowls
  • Eye bags
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Deep creases around the mouth and nose
  • Excess skin under the chin and in the neck

Am I Suitable for Facelift?

Facelift surgery is not recommended for patients who have diabetes, high blood pressure, and other serious health conditions. Heavy smokers are included in this category as well – smoking can influence the recovery period and ultimately, the result of the facelift procedure. Healthy patients who do not have medical conditions that impair healing and have realistic expectations are generally accepted as good candidates for the facelift procedure. 

Preparing for Facelift

The patient should avoid vitamins, herbal teas and blood thinners such as aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs for at least 2 weeks before the facelift surgeryas those supplements and medications can increase bleeding and bruising during and after the surgery. The patient should also stop smoking, as it can have a negative effect on the healing process.

How is Facelift Performed?

A facelift procedure is an effective way to help patients rejuvenate their facial appearance. The procedure is done under general anesthesia. Once the anesthesia applied, the surgeon will create an incision behind the hairline and around the front of the ear. The surgeon will then proceed to lift the skin and fatty tissue and separate it from the underlying muscle and tissue. The excess skin is then carefully removed, and once a satisfactory result is achieved, the surgeon will proceed to close the incision with sutures. Drains may be applied in some cases, to help eliminate excess bodily fluid and facilitate the recovery process. 

The whole area is then bandaged in order to prevent infection, and the facelift recovery period can begin. The surgery usually takes 4 hours, and the patient will be required to spend a night in the hospital.Mini facelifts, which have more slender effects than the standard facelift procedure, use shorter incisions at the temples that continue around the ear.

Facelift Recovery

The facelift recovery period lasts around a week in most cases. During the facelift recovery period, the patient should not use makeup for at least 4-5 days after the surgery. Once the dressings are removed in around 7 days, the patient can return to normal activities.It generally takes about two weeks for resuming a normal level of daily activity same with the patient did before the surgery. For more strenuous activities, like exercise, patients should wait about four weeks.

Facelift Risks and Complications

One of the most common facelift complications is developing an infection. 

Other facelift complications can include: 

  • Anesthesia risks
  • Blood clots
  • Pain or scarring
  • Damage to facial nerves
  • Hematoma
  • Skin necrosis – smoking can increase the risk of this happening
  • Hair loss – due to incisions

Facelift Side Effects

The patient may feel discomfort, pain, and nausea from the anesthesia for 1-2 days after the surgery. Patients also experience inflammation, problems with wound healing, prolonged swelling, and bruising, but these post-op effects will gradually pass in around 5 to 10 days after the facelift surgery. If not, the patient should inform the doctor in case of any extraordinary condition. 

Facelift Success Rates

A survey based on 131 facelift surgery reviews sets the satisfaction rate at 97.8% (87 patients), one year after the procedure was performed. A follow-up 12 years later, after the facelift surgery sets the satisfaction rate at 68.5% (61 patients). 

While there are many non-surgical choices to get a more youthful look, such as Botox, dermal fillers, laser lifts or face tape, facelift surgery provides the most permanent results with the high satisfaction rates.

Before and After Facelift

Facelift surgery is a long-lasting solution for patients wishing a more youthful appearance. The results of this procedure last for around 10 years.

A thread facelift or facelift threading is a safe and effective alternative to traditional facelift surgery in particular cases. This procedure is designed to be less invasive, more quickly, and with less risk than the standard approach. 

Facelift FAQ

Are Facelift Scars Visible?  Facelift scars are hidden in the hairline or the natural creases of the skin, so they are not visible.


If I Have Facelift Surgery, Will My Face Look Too Tight?
The patient will have a natural looking facial appearance after facelift surgery. It’s a good idea to see a couple of facelifts before and after pictures in order to get a good idea of what the procedure can achieve. 

How Long Until The Permanent Facelift Surgery Results Are Noticeable? It can take up to a year before the permanent results of facelift surgery are visible. During this time, the swelling gradually subsides, and small changes take place.There are also some long-term recommendations for the patients to keep the results long-lasting, such as maintaining a healthy weight and adopting a consistent and quality skin care regimen.
