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 Sinus Lift

Patients with the following problems can benefit from a sinus lift procedure:

  • Patients who need multiple implants in their upper jaws
  • Patients who are missing teeth due to genetics or birth defects
  • Patients suffering from bone loss in the posterior maxilla
  • Patients with one or more missing teeth in their posterior maxilla due to any reason

Most patients with a lowered sinus can benefit from this procedure. The lowering of the sinus is most often caused by:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Tooth loss
  • Trauma in the jaw region

Not Recommended For Sinus Lift

A sinus lift procedure is not recommended for the following categories of patients:

  • Patients who use tobacco excessively
  • Patients with severe allergic rhinitis
  • Chronic topical steroid use
  • Patients with tumors in the sinus
  • Patients suffering from a sinus infection
  • Radiation therapy can have a negative effect on the sinus lift procedure. Patients undergoing radiation therapy should postpone the sinus lift procedure until the body has fully healed

Duration Of Operation

90 to 120 minutes

Overview

Sinus augmentation, also known as sinus lift surgery is a dentistry procedure used to increase the bone density and amount of bone in the posterior maxilla, commonly called the upper jaw. In order to make room for new bone growth, the maxillary sinus needs to be lifted – this is where the procedure gets its name – sinus lift surgery

When patients lose bone height and width in their upper jaw, this procedure becomes a necessity. Most patients usually suffer bone loss in this area due to losing a tooth or teeth. The most common reasons for tooth loss are:

  • Tooth decay
  • Trauma in the teeth or jaw area
  • Periodontal disease

 

The loss of bone volume makes it impossible to perform a dental implant in the area, as dental implants require a stable and strong bone foundation in order to cope with daily pressure from chewing. 

Preparation

Patients need to undergo several testing phases before the sinus lift surgery can be performed. The role of these tests is to determine the health of the patient's sinuses. Most of the time, these tests include x-rays of the sinuses and upper jaws before leaving for treatment. CT scans can also be recommended by doctors in order to get a better understanding of the sinus's height and width.

How It Is Performed

The procedure begins with the dental surgeon administering the patient a local anesthetic. Once the anesthetic kicks in, an incision is created into the upper gum tissue, right beneath the sinus area. The gum tissue is raised, and the upper jaw bone is exposed. The dental surgeon then creates a small window right into the bone, exposing the sinus' membrane. The sinus' membrane is pushed up, with bone graft material tightly packed into the newly created space.  

Sinus lift surgery can use different types of bone graft materials, including:

  • Biomaterials
  • Autogenous bone - a bone graft from the patient
  • A combination of both

Once the bone graft material is introduced into the cavity, the dental surgeon will close the incision with stitches. Over time, the new bone graft material will begin merging with the patient's natural bone tissue.

Recovery

For most patients, the average sinus lift recovery experience involves dealing with swelling in the gum tissue around the incision area. Bleeding from the mouth or nose is also common during the first few weeks after the procedure. Blowing your nose or sneezing needs to be avoided as the stitches can get loose, and the bone graft material can move inside the sinus cavity.

Most patients use antibacterial mouthwashes, antibiotics, and painkillers during the recovery period.

Risks

Sinus lift complications can include one or more of the following:

● Torn or punctured sinus membrane 
● Infection 
● Sinusitis 
● Tissue or nerve damage 
● Graft failure 
● Hematoma 
● Revision surgery 

Side Effects

Sinus lift surgery side effects include: 

● Bleeding 
● Pain 
● Discomfort 
● Swelling 
● Inflammation 

Success Rates

Surgery reviews set the average sinus lift success rate at around 90%.

Before And After

After performing the sinus lift for a dental implant, the body needs time to heal properly. After five to nine months pass, the implants can be placed in the jaw. 

In some cases, the dental implant procedure and sinus lift procedure may be performed simultaneously, but it depends on the patient’s existing bone structure. 

Faq

– What happens if my sinus membrane gets torn during the sinus lift surgery? 
The surgeon will first stitch it or place a patch over it. If that doesn’t work, the procedure is postponed until the membrane heals itself. 

– What happens if the graft material doesn’t integrate with my bone after the sinus lift? 
In this case, the sinus lift surgery may need to be repeated. 

– Is sinus lift surgery safe? 
Definitely – sinus augmentation is a safe and reliable procedure. Less than 10% of patients develop complications following this procedure. Following the surgeon’s instructions and taking any medications as prescribed is essential for the success of this procedure.

– How long does sinus lift take to heal?

The body will fully heal in around 5 to 9 months after the procedure is done.
