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 Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty should only be taken into consideration by patients that have already reached a stable weight but are looking to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the abdominal area. Pregnant women or women planning to have children should postpone the surgery for a while. Tummy tuck scars should also be taken into consideration before choosing to undergo this procedure.

Discharge From Hospital

Patient may spend one night in hospital

Duration Of Operation

Between 2 to 3 hours

Preparation

Once reaching a stable weight, an abdominoplasty becomes an option. The patient should stop the intake of any vitamins, herbal teas and aspirin at least 10 days before surgery. The patient should also quit smoking at least 14 days before the procedure.

How It Is Performed

The patient is first put under general anaesthesia and the surgeon proceeds to outline the incision, which usually runs from one hip to the other. Next, the doctor will separate the loose skin from the abdominal wall and tighten the abdominal muscles through stitches. This will create a narrower waistline and a firmer abdomen. Once the extra skin is removed, the incision is stitched up and bandages are applied on the area to prevent infection.

Recovery

Tummy tuck results are noticeable in 2-3 weeks after surgery, when the swelling subsides. The tummy tuck recovery period lasts between 2 and 4 weeks with patients usually being able to return to work in 1-2 weeks. The patient will be provided with a special compression garment that needs to be worn as instructed by the doctor. This garment will speed up recovery and also reduce scarring in the surgery region.

Risks

Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck surgery carries some risks and the possibility of complications, just like any other plastic surgery procedures. The average tummy tuck complications rate is around 4% and can include: 
● Bleeding 
● Scarring which can lead to tummy tuck scar revision 
● Complications from anaesthesia 
● Nerve damage in the surgery area 
● Suture ruptures 
● Infection 

Side Effects

Patients may feel nausea from anaesthesia, numbness in the surgery area, swelling, bruising and pain which can be soothed with painkillers.

Success Rates

A survey based on tummy tuck reviews set the patient satisfaction rate at 86%, with 86% of patients recommending this procedure to family or friends.

Before And After

Before and after tummy tuck pictures may look appealing but the doctor’s guidelines are crucial to a successful abdominoplasty procedure. The patient can lose a considerable amount of fat and excess skin but these results need to be maintained through a strict diet and exercise plan.

Faq

Is tummy tuck worth it? 
Yes, 86% of abdominoplasty patients seem to believe so. It’s worth noting that severely overweight patients tend to suffer more from complications after an abdominoplasty, so it’s essential to reach a healthy weight before considering this procedure. 

Mini Tummy Tuck vs Tummy Tuck – What is the difference? 
The main difference between a mini tummy tuck and a full abdominoplasty is the incision length and the amount of fat and skin that can be removed. 

Tummy Tuck vs Lipo – What’s the difference? 
In an abdominoplasty surgery, excess skin and fat is removed – in lipo or liposuction, just fat is removed. Liposuction is minimally invasive and the incisions are very small.

Back To Work

1 to 2 weeks

Traditional Tummy Tuck Surgery

A traditional tummy tuck procedure, also called a “full tummy tuck” is the standard surgery for patients who want a flatter abdomen above and below the belly button area. During this procedure, the doctor will make a long horizontal incision from one hip to the other and around the umbilicus. Excess skin and tissue is then removed, with the remaining skin and underlying muscle tissue being pulled tightly over the stomach. The belly button is repositioned before the incision is closed with sutures. This procedure is recommended for patients with excess skin in the bellybutton area and weak abdominal muscles. General anaesthesia is administered to the patient before the procedure can begin. The recovery period usually lasts around 2 weeks with swelling and bruising gradually going down over a longer period of time.

Mini Tummy Tuck Surgery

Mini tummy tuck surgery is less invasive than a standard tummy tuck procedure, but the overall objectives are the same. This technique is better suited for patients with excess skin and tissue below the belly button, making it ideal for slender individuals with a so called “belly pooch” – a small bulge of skin and underlying tissue in the lower abdomen. The surgeon will create a smaller horizontal incision under the belly button before removing excess skin and tightening the stomach muscle beneath. The incision is then closed with sutures. Repositioning of the belly button itself is not necessary, due to the smaller incision made with this technique. Since a mini tummy tuck is less invasive than standard tummy tuck surgery, it can be done under twilight anaesthesia and the recovery period is shorter, at around a week.

Extended Tummy Tuck

An extended tummy tuck, also known as a circumferential lower body lift is a more invasive type of procedure used to address issues of the abdomen, lower back and hips region. This surgery is recommended for individuals who lost a lot of weight and are in good health – this procedure can completely reshape the look of the patient’s body. A long horizontal incision is required to perform this procedure – the incision stretches across the lower belly and the lower back. A vertical incision is made from the lower belly to the bellybutton as well. These incisions will allow the doctor to remove any surplus skin tissue and fatty tissue while tightening the underlying abdominal muscles. Liposuction can be also applied to further reshape the body’s contour for a more aesthetically pleasing result. The belly button is repositioned and all incisions are closed with sutures. Being more invasive than other techniques, extended tummy tuck surgery requires general anaesthesia in order to be performed and a recovery period of at least four weeks.

Which technique is better?

Abdominoplasty techniques differ from patient to patient according to several different factors including the patient’s weight, amount of excess skin and fatty tissue and their expectations from the procedure. Scarring from previous procedures can also play a role in determining which technique will be used.
