Turkey

Turkey is a treasure trove of traditions, spices, street food delights and destinations for any intrepid tourist. It’s a mix between the familiar and the exotic, ranging from the bustling streets of Istanbul to the serene and relaxed Roman ruins spread around Turkey’s Western and Southern coast. Turkey is a fairly large country with 75 million inhabitants. The country spreads between Europe and Asia, with 97% of the country on the Asian side – Asian Turkey. Turkey is encircled and enjoys access to three different seas: The Black Sea, The Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean. Istanbul is the largest city in Turkey and the largest city in Europe, regarding population – It has over 14 million people.

Healthcare

Turkey’s medical infrastructure has improved greatly beginning with the early 2000s and now is one of the biggest medical tourism hubs in Europe and Asia. Turkey has the largest number of JCI-accredited hospitals, second only to the USA and hospitals are more often than not part of international healthcare groups, following strict European protocols and regulations. Turkey has 28.000 medical institutions spread across the European and Asian side but some of the biggest private hospitals and medical centres are in Istanbul, Ankara, Antalya and Bodrum – these also happen to be some of the best tourist destinations in Turkey.

Sights to See

Bodrum is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Turkey, with its sandy beaches and small streets littered with traditional shops and elegant restaurants. The town used to be called Halicarnassus, and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is one of the World’s Seven Ancient Wonders. Bodrum also features a castle built by the crusaders in the 15th century.

Istanbul is the home of several architectural treasures, including the Blue Mosque. The Blue Mosque was built on the orders of Sultan Ahmed between 1609 and 1616 and the Sultan’s body still resides within the mosque. The high ceiling is lined with more than 20000 handmade ceramic tiles, hence the name – The Blue Mosque.

Pamukkale, meaning “The Cotton Castle” in Turkish is a surreal destination in the country’s western region of Denizli, world renowned for its white terraces with warm spring water. The ancient Greek city of Hierapolis was built over the springs and Pamukkale was a renowned destination in antiquity as well. Tourists can visit the ancient Roman and Greek ruins of the baths, temples and theatres dating to the second century BC.

Things to Know

● If you don’t feel like waiting in a queue, you can get a VISA for Turkey online. The VISA usually costs around $20 for US travellers.

● Turkey’s population is predominantly Islamic so it’s a good idea to wear a headscarf while visiting mosques. Shorts or any other garments that fit under the knee are not prohibited by law but it’s considered good etiquette not to wear shorts for men or short skirts for women.

● You can change any sort of currency into the Turkish Lira – the Turkish currency just about everywhere. Most supermarkets and shops also accept credit cards.

● Roaming fees in Turkey can be somewhat expensive, so it’s a good idea to simply buy a new Turkish SIM card and use it while staying in Turkey.

● Turkey’s international calling code is +90.

● Electrical installations usually operate on 220 volts, 50 Hz and use European style plugs and European style sockets. Four and Five star hotels usually provide North American - 120 volts, 60 Hz sockets as well.

● Driving in Turkey can be a hassle sometimes, but very pleasurable at other times. Roads are usually in good shape and some roads actually lack traffic, so it can be a relaxing experience. In Turkey, people drive on the right, so that’s a detail you will need to keep in mind. In some areas, villagers made cardboard and marker pen signs in order to help lost tourist on their way.

● Renting a car in Turkey is quite simple and cheap. If you have the budget for a full insurance, you should definitely take it – if anything happens, at least you won’t have to worry about money.

● The Turkish Airlines Company, THY offers destinations to just about anywhere in the world with a total of 261 destinations. The company was founded in 1933 and features 285 passenger and cargo planes.

● Turkey uses the metric system which is easy enough to understand – 1 Km = 1000 meters, 1 Kg = 1000 grams, and so on. One mile equals 1.60 Km.

● Turkish people are warm and very hospitable - It is customary for people to hug and kiss both cheeks regardless of their gender.

● Turkish street food is very diverse, from the simple bagel-type snack Simit to the familiar pizza-type Lahmacun, there are tons of variants to just about anything. 



● Turkish coffee is world renowned, but it’s also a bit different than say, its American counterpart -  It is usually a strong coffee with a rich aroma, served very hot from a small traditional cup. Be careful not to drink any of the coffee grounds still in the cup.

● Turkish delight, as the name suggests, can be a really sweet delight for tourists. It is made from sugar, starch and just about any fruit or aroma imaginable, including walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, dates, lemon, orange, rosewater and many others. Turkish delight is usually served with coffee and it became popular all around the world, including in the Balkans region and as far as Brazil and North America.

Neck Lift

Neck lift surgery, also known as platysmaplasty surgery, is a type of plastic surgery performed widely all around the world in order to improve the pleasant appearance of the neck region. 

Sometimes platysmaplasty surgery or neck lift surgery is used to remove excess tissue as well as tightening the skin and underlying muscle tissue in the region. Although non-surgical techniques are often used with products such as laser, tape, cream or botulinum toxin, the surgery offers a more permanent and long-lasting solution. Ultherapy, which is one of the non-surgical lifting procedures, is safe enough to be applied to almost any area of the face and neck. Surgeons may maximize the overall amount of skin firming patients receive and create more lifting by combining this procedure with a thread lift. Scarscould also be minimized in this way. 


Many people feel self-conscious about the appearance of their neck because it is obvious. Sagging excess skin and tissue around their necks can make them feel unattractive or undesirable.

What Can Lead To An Unattractive Neck? 

Being overweight, even by a few pounds, can lead to an unattractive neck. The neck area can be too fleshy or obtuse. On the other hand, losing excess weight can also cause excess sagging skin in the neck area. Some patients have a genetic predisposition for fatty tissue growth and accumulated in the jaw area. Aging is another factor that can lead to an unattractive neck, as the skin loses its elasticity, and it begins to sag in time.  


When platysmaplasty surgery or neck lift surgery is combined with the following procedures, more successful results can be achieved:

 

● Facelift - also known as rhytidectomy, can eliminate the appearance of aging and wrinkles in the face area

● Chin augmentation - weak jaw patients can have more aesthetic jaws with this procedure

● Brow lift - this procedure is performed to elevate the eyebrows in order to make the forehead skin appear smoother and younger

Neck Lift Candidates

Neck lift surgery, also known as platysmaplasty surgery, is recommended for patients with one or more of the following: 


  • Excess loose skin or fatty tissue in the neck area 
    Submental fat also is known as a double chin 
    The droopy neck also is known as turkey wattle neck

Am I Suitable for Neck Lift?

Platysmaplasty surgery is typically not recommended for morbidly obese patients or patients suffering from severe health conditions such as heart disease, lung disease or cancer. Other restrictions may also apply to patients suffering from any underlying health conditions; therefore, the final decision will be given by the doctors themselves.

Preparing for Neck Lift

Platysmaplasty surgery patients need to have realistic expectations from the procedure– this is the first preparation step for neck lift surgery. As with any surgery, patients need to stop smoking at least a month before and after the procedure. Herbal teas, herbal supplements, vitamins, anti-inflammatory drugs, and aspirin are forbidden at least 2 weeks before and after the procedure is performed.ed.

How is Neck Lift Performed?

Platysmaplasty surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, making it practically painless. The procedure itself lasts around 2-3 hours. The surgeon will begin the operation by creating incisions under the ear and under the jaw. Subsequently, a portion of excess skin is removed. At this point, fat tissue and muscle tissue can also be removed. In order to achieve a better result, different neck lifting techniques can be applied to meet the needs of the patient. When the desired result is achieved, the surgeon closes the incision and the neck lift recovery time can begin.
