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.

Recommended For Thigh Lift

Thigh lifting surgery is recommended, especially for patients who have lost significant amounts of weight by bariatric surgery or exercise. Because these patients usually have a large amount of drooping tissue around the thigh area after their excess weight loss experience. Some patients may have sagging skin around the thighs even without any weight loss. It can only be due to genetics.

Not Recommended For Thigh Lift

Thigh lift procedure is not recommended for those with an unstable weight as fluctuations can interfere with the success of the surgery results. 

Thighplasty patients need to be in good general health without any severe medical conditions. For example, patients who have diabetes, lung disease or heart disease may not be good candidates for thigh lift surgery. Individuals wanting this surgery also need to have a clear understanding of the procedure and what it can achieve.

Overview

Thigh lift surgery or thigh plasty is a type of plastic surgery procedure which can effectively tighten the skin around the thighs area, thus reducing any sagging in the inner and outer thighs regions. This procedure aims to achieve firmer and more attractive upper legs. Thigh plasty surgery is usually performed on patients that have lost a considerable amount of weight, but it can also be performed on individuals that have excess fat and loose skin tissue around the thighs.

There are two main types of thigh lift surgery

● Inner thigh lift surgery or inner thighplasty 
● Outer thigh lift surgery or outer thighplasty 

 

An outer thigh lift procedure can be performed as part of a body lift procedure. The inner thigh lift is usually performed as a single procedure. Patients often combine outer thigh lift surgery with tummy tuck or abdominoplasty. This is called an extended or vertical thigh lift procedure.

Preparation

Patients must avoid smoking for at least 2 weeks before the thighplasty surgery. They should inform their surgeons of previous surgeries, any medical conditions, and medications. Avoiding blood-thinning medications, anti-inflammatory drugs or herbal supplementations is also very important at this stage, as they can increase the risk of excessive bleeding during the thigh lift surgery. It's a good idea for patients to have a physical examination from their GP before traveling abroad for the surgery.

How It Is Performed

The anesthesia choices for thigh lift surgery can be general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. At first, the incision areas are shaved and cleaned with betadine. After the anesthesia kicks in, the surgeon begins making the necessary incisions that he or she determined before the procedure.At this stage, several techniques can be used. One technique places incision in the groin, extending downward and wrapping around the back of the thigh. Another technique uses an incision along the inseam and removes excess skin from the groin down to the knee.

There are two main types of thigh lift surgery: 

● Inner thigh lift surgery – the incision is made in the groin crease 
● Outer thigh lift surgery – the incision is made horizontally, just under the hip bone 


There are also alternative types of thigh lift procedure called medial, anterior, and lateral thigh lift.
After the surgeon creates the incisions, any excess skin and fat tissue from the thighs area are started to remove. Once the desired result is achieved, the incisions are closed up with dissolving stitches and the area is wrapped in bandages in order to avoid any potential infection in the thigh area. The thigh lift recovery period can begin.

Recovery

The average thigh lift recovery period lasts around 5 weeks. When the patients wake up from their thigh lift surgery, their incisions will be bandaged and will most likely have drains to prevent blood and fluid from accumulating. 

Patients need to avoid any movement during the first week of the thigh lift recovery period. Sitting during the recovery period will also not be allowed because it can put pressure on incisions and compromise healing. Compression garments need to be worn during the first 2 weeks after rhinoplasty surgery. Patients can usually return to work in around 3-4 weeks, but physical activity and sitting need to be kept at a minimum, as it can lead to complications.

Risks

Thigh lift surgery risks and complications can include: 

● Infection 
● Excessive bleeding 
● Scarring 
● Wound separation 
Revision surgery 
● Asymmetry

● Deep vein thrombosis

● Fat necrosis

Side Effects

Thigh lift surgery side effects can include: 

Pain 
● Discomfort 
● Swelling 
● Numbness 
● Bleeding

● Infection

● Fluid accumulation (seroma)

Success Rates

Thigh lift reviews set the average success rate at 93%.

Before And After

The swelling will gradually reduce during the first 2 weeks after surgery. Results will start to become visible from the second week onward but it’s important to note that patients should maintain their weight after the procedure. Just because the fatty tissue has been removed, it doesn’t mean that it can’t grow back. A healthy diet and regular exercise can help patients maintain their newfound look following their thigh lift surgery.

Faq

When Can I Resume Sports or Exercise After the Thigh Lift Procedure?
Patients can return to exercise or sports in around 6 weeks after the procedure. 

Are the Thigh Lift Scars Visible?
No, the scars are well hidden, especially if a skilled surgeon performs the surgery. The scars are located in the skin's natural folds and creases.

Can the Procedure Be Combined with Other Types of Surgery?
Yes, body contouring and tummy tuck are popular choices among patients to combine with thigh lift procedure.A thread thigh liftin which absorbable threads are used to lift the inner thighs can also be used in some particular cases.
