My experience was great!

I was worried that I would have my surgery in a foreign country alone, but Luna Clinic made me feel right at home. They attended to my every need right away, and I didn’t feel alone even for one second. Thanks for everything. My experience was great!

Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Recommended For Vaginal Hysterectomy

Vaginal hysterectomy is performed for the following reasons, involving:
• Abnormal bleeding and pelvic pain without a specific cause – Doctors may also find hysterectomy appropriate for the solution of certain gynecological problems.
• Cancer of several types, involving uterine cancer and cervical cancer.
The main reason why vaginal hysterectomy is preferred to abdominal hysterectomy is that it is less painful, and the healing process is faster

Not Recommended For Vaginal Hysterectomy

Vaginal hysterectomy is not the first choice if cervical and uterine cancer is suspected. In addition, endometriosis is treated by abdominal hysterectomy.In cases where it is not possible to remove from the vagina due to the size of the uterus, abdominal hysterectomy is carried out.

Overview

Vaginal hysterectomy is the procedure of removing the uterus and other organs through the vagina and not through an incision such as in the abdomen or laparoscopic hysterectomy. As is generally accepted, the recovery time of vaginal hysterectomy is faster and does not have the risk of complications as abdominal hysterectomy.

The method used in vaginal hysterectomy allows the application of different types, like:

• Subtotal hysterectomy – It is the most limited type of hysterectomy. Only the uterus of the patient is removed.

• Total hysterectomy – both uterus and cervix are removed from the patient.

• Radical hysterectomy – In this procedure of hysterectomy, uterus, cervix, surrounding tissues, glands and parts of the vagina are removed.

• Hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy – radical and total hysterectomy may additionally involve the removal of fallopian tubes and ovaries.

In some cases, vaginal hysterectomy may be supported by laparoscopy. This procedure is called laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy. Specialists who do not wish to undergo total laparoscopic hysterectomy due to lack of experience or different situations use laparoscopy to provide a clear view of the uterus and other organs.

Scars After Surgery

Vaginal hysterectomy does not result in scarring, as in abdominal hysterectomy, because organs are removed through the vagina. The experience of the doctor and the fact that the medical condition does not require abdominal hysterectomy can be considered as an advantage.

Risks

As vaginal hysterectomy positively impacts hysterectomy recovery period and minimizes the infection risk attributable to lack of open cuts, it likewise has negative sides. These involve an increased risk of damage to other organs.
