Turkey is a treasure trove of traditions, spices, street food delights and destinations for any intrepid tourist. It’s a mix between the familiar and the exotic, ranging from the bustling streets of Istanbul to the serene and relaxed Roman ruins spread around Turkey’s Western and Southern coast. Turkey is a fairly large country with 75 million inhabitants. The country spreads between Europe and Asia, with 97% of the country on the Asian side – Asian Turkey. Turkey is encircled and enjoys access to three different seas: The Black Sea, The Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean. Istanbul is the largest city in Turkey and the largest city in Europe, regarding population – It has over 14 million people.
Turkey’s medical infrastructure has improved greatly beginning with the early 2000s and now is one of the biggest medical tourism hubs in Europe and Asia. Turkey has the largest number of JCI-accredited hospitals, second only to the USA and hospitals are more often than not part of international healthcare groups, following strict European protocols and regulations. Turkey has 28.000 medical institutions spread across the European and Asian side but some of the biggest private hospitals and medical centres are in Istanbul, Ankara, Antalya and Bodrum – these also happen to be some of the best tourist destinations in Turkey.
Bodrum is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Turkey, with its sandy beaches and small streets littered with traditional shops and elegant restaurants. The town used to be called Halicarnassus, and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is one of the World’s Seven Ancient Wonders. Bodrum also features a castle built by the crusaders in the 15th century.
Istanbul is the home of several architectural treasures, including the Blue Mosque. The Blue Mosque was built on the orders of Sultan Ahmed between 1609 and 1616 and the Sultan’s body still resides within the mosque. The high ceiling is lined with more than 20000 handmade ceramic tiles, hence the name – The Blue Mosque.
Pamukkale, meaning “The Cotton Castle” in Turkish is a surreal destination in the country’s western region of Denizli, world renowned for its white terraces with warm spring water. The ancient Greek city of Hierapolis was built over the springs and Pamukkale was a renowned destination in antiquity as well. Tourists can visit the ancient Roman and Greek ruins of the baths, temples and theatres dating to the second century BC.

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, after liposuction, breast lift, tummy tuck and breast augmentation.
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 a blepharoplasty procedure for a better effect.
Facelift surgery can also be combined with the following procedures:
● Eyelid surgery
● Neck lift
● Brow lift
● Fat transfer
Facelift surgery is recommended for patients with:
● Sagging skin
● Eye bags
● Nasolabial folds
Facelift surgery is not recommended for patients suffering from 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.
The patient should avoid vitamins, herbal teas and blood thinners such as aspirin for at least 2 weeks before the facelift surgery. The patient should also stop smoking at least a week before going in for facelift surgery, as it can have a negative effect on the facelift procedure’s outcome.
A facelift procedure is an effective way to help patients rejuvenate their facial appearance. The procedure is done under general anaesthesia. Once the anaesthesia kicks in, the surgeon will create an incision point at the temple hair and continue it towards the earlobe and around it, under the ear before finally ending in the hairline behind the ear. The surgeon will then proceed to lift the skin and fatty tissue and separate it from the underlying muscle and connective tissue. At this point, the surgeon may strengthen and tighten the underlying muscle by using sutures, but this is only done in certain cases. The excess skin is then carefully removed and once a satisfactory result is achieved, the surgeon will proceed to close the incision with sutures or staples. Drains may be applied in some cases, to help eliminate excess bodily fluid and facilitate the facelift 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.
Patient may spend one night in hospital
2 to 5 hours
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. Certain activities can loosen the sutures – it’s best to wait for 2 weeks before engaging in contact sports. Once the dressings are removed in around 7 days, the patient can return to normal activities.
One of the most common facelift complications is developing an infection.
Other facelift complications can include:
● Damage to facial nerves
● Skin necrosis – smoking can increase the risk of this happening
● Hair loss – due to incisions
The patient may feel discomfort, pain and nausea from the anaesthesia for 1-2 days after the surgery. Patients also experience inflammation, swelling and bruising but these post-op effects will gradually pass in around 5 to 10 days after the facelift surgery.
A survey based on 131 facelift surgery reviews sets the satisfaction rate at 97.8%, one year after the procedure was performed. A follow-up 12 years later after the facelift surgery sets the satisfaction rate at 68.5%.
Facelift surgery is a long lasting solution for patients wishing a more youthful appearance. The results of this procedure last for around 10 years.
