You can see Incisional hernia in where your former incision is. Patients that had incisions has about 20% rate of developing incisional hernia although the incidence may look uncommon. Numerous web pages propose a myth for treating the hernia without surgery; in fact, there is no scientific evidence behind it. Therefore, incisional hernia repair carried out in the traditional way or with a laparoscope, are the most favored ways.

The most apparent symptom of incisional hernia is when it is discolored and occasionally aching bulge which results from part of an organ generally intestine, to stick out of the gap in abdominal muscles. If the incisional hernia becomes strangulated hernia, where the bulging tissue is out of its bloodstock and looks deep red or purple, then it is an emergency. In addition, hernia symptoms may come up with digestive system problems such as nausea, vomiting, and some other problems. Therefore, we should consult on a professional to get an appropriate diagnosis.

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.

Preparation

Preparation starts with, speaking to your professional about your medical histories like the conditions you have and your medications. Then, leaving blood-thinners like aspirins days beforehand about your treatment. For the other preparations, you should speak out with your professional.

How It Is Performed

Incisional hernia repair surgery is performed by two methods: Traditional and Laparoscopy. Creating a new incision to move the organ back to abdomen and closing it with mesh is the traditional method but since it is an open surgery, it has a higher risk of infection than laparoscopy (a thin tube with a camera) has. On the other hand, laparoscopic hernia repair needed an accomplished professional. Therefore – choose wisely.

Recovery

The recovery period of hernia surgery is somewhat long. 2 to 5 days of hospital stay is awaited after your surgery. In addition to that, approximately 4 weeks of rest as being apart from work and sport is a must need for you to heal appropriately. Also to prevent the hernia from developing again, a special compression belt needed to be wear in this recovery period.

Risks

Repeated emergence of hernia is the most frequently seen complication of the repair. It makes the new surgery a requirement. Also, the infection may be another complication but is uncommon, especially if laparoscopy was the method of repair. Nerve damage or intestine damage are some uncommon cases that can result from the repair as well

Side Effects

No other side effect is seen beside the requirement of compression belt and avoidance of exhausting work.

Success Rates

As the techniques developing, the success rate of this repair seems moderate for now. Symptoms of hernia reappearance and requirement of surgery are 40% of former patients. However, it does not mean that you can resign from having your hernia operated. Still, leaving your hernia untreated, will eventually make your hernia strangulated and endanger your health and life.

Before And After

After incisional hernia repair, you should feel much better – after all, your appearance is improved, and you do not need to worry about possible complications related to this medical condition.

Faq

What is the Difference between Incisional Hernia and Other Hernias? 
Other types of hernias are resulting from damage to your abdominal wall, whereas an incisional hernia is resulting from your former medical treatments and the incisions that healed incorrectly.

What is Better: Laparoscopic Hernia Repair or Classic Hernia Repair? There is no ultimate "better" and "worse" in this case. For some patients, laparoscopic hernia repair is better while in another classical method will bring better results. Moreover, extra expertise inability and care from your professional is required for laparoscopic hernia repair.

Can I Leave My Hernia Untreated? You can, but it is not a reasonable choice. The untreated incisional hernia will sooner or later turn into a strangulated hernia, which is a serious medical condition, leading to health problems and in extreme cases – to death.
