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 Canthoplasty

Canthoplasty surgery is recommended for patients who have excessive, sagging, or wrinkled upper or lower eyelid skin. The procedure is also recommended for patients who have puffy pouches of fat in the lower lids that create a tired or aged appearance and have baggy lower eyelids or simply patients who wish to rejuvenate their appearance.

Not Recommended For Canthoplasty

Canthoplasty surgery, also known as lower eye lift surgery, is not recommended for patients suffering from one or more of the following:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Glaucoma
  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Detached retina
  • Overactive thyroid gland

 

Smoking can affect blood vessels; thus, it may reduce the blood flow to your eyes. Therefore, it is also advised that patients do not smoke; they ideally need to quit smoking before the surgery.

Discharge From Hospital

Usually overnight stay is not required

Duration Of Operation

1 to 3 hours

Overview

Canthoplasty surgery, also known as lateral canthoplastyor eyelid lift surgery, is a type of cosmetic procedure usually performed to make the eye bigger and improve the aesthetic appearance of the eye’s region. The definitionof these surgeries that refer to the eyelids may sometimes interfere with one another: epicanthoplastyor medial canthoplastyis another surgical procedure which enlarges the eye horizontally, is performed at the inner corner of the eye, whereas lateral canthoplasty enlarges the outer edge of the eye.

Canthoplasty surgery can correct sagging, drooping, or bagginess of the lower eyelids. Some individuals may be born with drooping lower, but the natural aging process can also cause lower eyelid droopiness – the skin becomes less elastic after a certain age, and small bags begin to develop under the lower eyelids. Exposure to the sun may also cause the lower eyelids to sag. This brings a tired expression to the patients' faces. The primary aim of canthoplasty surgery is to remove all the bags under the eye and to remove the fatigue on the patient's face and to provide a more youthful and fresh expression. This procedureis also known as lower eyelid surgery.

Preparation

Apart from quitting smoking, oral supplements, herbal teas, and blood thinners such as aspirin need to be avoided for at least 2 weeks before canthoplasty surgery. Alcohol consumption is prohibited for at least 48 hours before and after the lower eye lift surgery.

How It Is Performed

Canthoplasty surgery can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. Surgeons discuss these options with the patient and decide the most appropriate approach according to the patient's condition.

After anesthesia is applied to the patient, the surgeon begins to mark the incision points. The incisions are usually formed in a bend in the corner of the eye so that the scars can be hidden.

A thin plastic shield is used to protect the patient's eyeball. Canthoplasty operation varies from patient to patient but is usually cut by the lower canthal tendon, repositioned, and tightened to obtain a more pleasant appearance. When the procedure is finished, the plastic shield is removed, and the incisions are carefully closed. Bandages are applied to the area that is operated to prevent infection.

Recovery

The canthoplasty surgery recovery period usually lasts around 2 weeks. If normal stitches are used, they will be removed in around a week after the procedure. If soluble sutures are used, they do not need to be removed. Approximately one week after Canthoplasty surgery, patients can return to work and normal activities. Eye drops can be used to keep the eyes moist. Patients will be provided with a special type of gel that can be used to keep the eyes region clean. 

Makeup should be avoided for at least a week after the canthoplasty surgery. Patients can also use cold compresses to help reduce swelling during the canthoplasty recovery time.

Risks

Canthoplasty surgery complications can include: 

  • Bleeding
  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • Damage to deeper structures
  • Hematoma

Success Rates

Before And After

The procedure’s results are visible immediately. After canthoplasty surgery, patients can enjoy a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. The patient’s eyes will be bigger, and any droopiness or sagginess will be a thing of the past. These results usually continue between 10 and 15 years. Some patients prefer revision surgery to wipe out the effects of aging during or after this time.

Faq

Can Canthoplasty Surgery Be Combined with Other Procedures?
Yes, canthoplasty surgery can be combined with blepharoplasty surgery and canthopexy surgery. 

What Is the Difference Between Canthopexy, Blepharoplasty, and Canthoplasty Surgery? 
These procedures are very similar, and all three aim to improve the aesthetics of the eye area. The main difference is the technique used in the surgery. Different methods are better suited to different patients, and it depends on the problem they are facing. 

Can Canthoplasty Surgery Help Me Get Rid of The Dark Circles Under My Eyes?
It may be helpful, but only if dark circles appear as a result of drooping eyelids or eyes bags under the eyes. Usually, dark circles under the eyes are caused by pigment problems, and canthoplasty is not a solution.
