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.

Not Recommended For Silhouette Lift

Some patients may have allergies which will not allow them to be good candidates for a silhouette lift procedure.

Duration Of Operation

1 to 2 hours

Overview

Silhouette lift is a minimally invasive procedure, mostly done to rejuvenate the appearance of the middle face, neck and brow region. The process effectively elevates and corrects drooping tissues in these areas with the help of very fine threads that are inserted under the skin. The threads themselves are very similar to those used in facelift surgery – they are made from polypropylene, a material which is currently used for sutures and stitches inside the body.The special facelift procedure called the silhouette InstaLift is an FDA-approved procedure and also used commonly. Surgeons use absorbable sutures with tiny bi-directional cones in this "instant" procedure in order to lift and suspend the deeper layers of the skin. 

 

Silhouette lift is a very safe and effective procedure which offers immediate results. The procedure also has considerable advantages to traditional facelift surgery: 

● No incision – a silhouette lift is a minimally invasive procedure; it means that there is no incision used during the operation. Patients will have no visible scars as well as the risk of infection is minimized as well.

● Speedy recovery – the average silhouette lift recovery period is much shorter than with full facelift surgery. 

● Anesthesia – there is no need to use general anesthesia for a silhouette lift as it used in traditional facelift surgery, local anesthesia is used instead. Therefore, more people can have this procedure, since some people are incompatible with the risks associated with general anesthesia. 

● Good results – a silhouette lift provides immediate remarkable results which last for a certain period before other procedures may become more necessary.

Preparation

Vitamins, blood thinners, anti-inflammatory drugs, some herbal supplements, and herbal teas should be avoided at least 1 week before the silhouette lift. In addition, smokers should stop smoking at least one week before the procedure. If the patient suffers from any infection around the face or neck region, it needs to be treated before the silhouette lift.

How It Is Performed

Local anesthesia is firstly used in the area where the sutures or threads will be placed. Once it applies, the surgeon creates a micro-incision before starting to insert the threads into the treated area. Typically, a long needle is used for this part of the procedure. The threads used have a small umbrella-like part which latches on to tissue, lifting and repositioning it accordingly.

Once the desired appearance is achieved, the needle is removed, and the thread is knotted under the skin. This cannot be seen or felt at this point. There is no need for bandages or sutures for this procedure.

Recovery

Patients usually return to normal activities in around two days after the silhouette lift procedure. The skin needs around a week to 10 days to completely recover from the procedure. All marks relating to the silhouette lift are invisible by this point. During the first two days, if the patients may experience swelling, discomfort, and pain, they can use icepacks and painkiller to ease these post-op side effects. 
For around 3 weeks after the procedure, some restrictions need to be taken into account. Patients must avoid rubbing their face too much or trauma to the face or neck. No pressure should be applied to the face as it can move and remove the silhouette threads.
