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 Myomectomy

Female patients who are suffering from uterine fibroids (also called myoma or leiomyoma of the uterus) can be the candidates for myomectomy. It does not happen often, but sometimes leiomyoma of the uterus develops cancer, and it may cause bleeding, pain, and infertility.

Not Recommended For Myomectomy

If the patient's leiomyoma did not turn into cancer, which rarely happens, then the patient is suitable for the operation. It is relatively a safer and less complex operation than a hysterectomy.

Overview

Myomectomyis a surgery for the removal of uterine fibroids. Also, this treatment lets patients avoid hysterectomy operation. There are different kinds of myomectomy, which are hysteroscopic myomectomy, laparoscopic myomectomy, an abdominal myomectomy (or laparotomic myomectomy). In contrast to hysterectomy, patients who had myomectomy can get pregnant after the operation.


Types of Myomectomy Surgery

There are three main types of myomectomy procedure: 

• Hysteroscopic Myomectomy – hysteroscopic myomectomy is usually used to remove uterine fibroids growing inside the uterus. Hysteroscopy is a medical device inserted through the vagina and allowing for operation without external incisions. 

• Laparoscopic Myomectomy – This method is very useful in cases of minor uterine fibroids which are located on the outer wall of the uterus. Laparoscopic myomectomy is performed with a medical tool called laparoscope. It involves a camera and a light. Surgeons make several small incisions instead of a single big one.

• Abdominal Myomectomy (Laparotomic Myomectomy) – In this method, surgeons make a large incision in the abdomen. This method finds its use in complicated cases of leiomyoma of the uterus, with large numbers of uterine fibroids in different locations.

Preparation

Before the surgery, some patients may need hormonal therapy with so-called GnRH-a. It would be effective in reducing the bleeding from the uterus. Also, before the operation, you should always inform your doctors about the medical conditions you have and the medicines you are taking. Therefore, your doctors may want you to stop taking some of the medicines which may affect the process negatively. 

How It Is Performed

Even though there are different methods (hysteroscopic myomectomy, laparoscopic myomectomy, and abdominal myomectomy) to perform myomectomy, their purpose is the same, which is to the removal of the uterine fibroids. After the operation, surgeons pay attention to the operated area in case of extreme bleeding to stop it, and they might make stitches. (like in the abdominal myomectomy and, to a smaller extent, in the laparoscopic myomectomy).

Recovery

The myomectomy recovery period varies depending on the type of the myomectomy performed. Hysteroscopic myomectomy has a very short recovery time, which is a couple of days while the recovery period for abdominal myomectomy is around 6 weeks. In general, during the myomectomy recovery period, patients may experience pain, but it would not require any medical intervention.

Risks

Even though the myomectomy surgery is a safe one, still there are some risks and complications. For example, surgeons may cause harm to surround organs during the operation. Also, infection is one of the complications of myomectomy. Rarely, this surgery may cause infertility in some of the patients. Yet the most important complication of myomectomy is extreme bleeding. Surgeons may need to perform a hysterectomy to be able to stop it.

Side Effects

Myomectomy surgery has no known side effects.

Success Rates

There is no clear data about the success rate of myomectomy operation, but it is known that many patients who had myomectomy are pleased. 

Faq

What Is Myomectomy? 

Myomectomy is performed as a treatment for uterine fibroids. Myomectomy can be performed in three different ways. During the hysteroscopic myomectomy, surgeons remove uterine fibroids from the vagina while in laparoscopic myomectomy several small cuts are made and in abdominal myomectomy, there is a big cut made to perform the operation. There are different kinds of methods for the different needs of the patients.

 

 

Myomectomy vs. Hysterectomy – Which Is Better? 

The answer depends on the patient's expectation. If the patient is willing to get pregnant, then myomectomy is the best choice. However, hysterectomy enjoys higher success rates when it comes to the overall satisfaction of patients. 

 

Is There a Connection between Fibroids and Pregnancy? 

Many patients have uterine fibroids without even realizing it. Yet there might be issues caused by leiomyoma of the uterus which can lead to performing of myomectomy surgery.
