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.

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty surgery, also known as a “nose job” is a type of reconstructive plastic surgery that can be used to aesthetically enhance the nose or restore the nasal functions to their fullest.

There are two types of rhinoplasty: open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty.

Am I Suitable for Rhinoplasty?

Nose reshaping or rhinoplasty is not recommended for individuals whose physiological development is not complete – children and teenagers fall into this category.

Preparing for Rhinoplasty

The patient should avoid any intake of vitamins, herbal teas, and aspirin for at least 10 days before the procedure. Drinking, eating, and smoking are prohibited for at least 8 hours before a nose surgery.

How is Rhinoplasty Performed?

Local or general anaesthesia is administered to the patient before the nose surgery can begin. Rhinoplasty is a very safe procedure – rhinoplasty complications are rare, with 1,56% to 2,73% of patients requiring reoperations, according to a study by Paulo Fernando Tormin Borges Crosara and his team from 2016.

Once the anaesthesia sets in, the surgeon proceeds to separate the nasal skin from the rest of the nasal structure. 

In a closed rhinoplasty surgery, the surgeon will use the nostrils as entry points to correct the underlying nasal structures consisting of bone and cartilage. 

In an open rhinoplasty procedure, the surgeon will cut the columella and then proceed to make the necessary changes. Once the nasal structure is changed according to the patient’s wishes, the surgeon will suture the incisions and apply a stent to further stabilize the nose surgery result. The area is then wrapped in bandages and the rhinoplasty recovery period can begin.

Rhinoplasty Recovery

The rhinoplasty recovery period is not restrictive at all, but there are certain things that the patient needs to keep in mind after the procedure. Patients can usually return to work and normal activities in about a week but contact sports should be avoided for a few months. Rhinoplasty post op tips also include wearing the nasal splint or rhinoplasty cast for a few weeks after the procedure, especially at night. Rhinoplasty healing time is up to a year in most cases, as the swelling will gradually reduce and the final nose shape will be revealed in around 11-12 months.

Scars after Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty scars are very limited, but it depends on the type of nose surgery – an open nose surgery will require cutting the columella but if the closed rhinoplasty technique is used, scars will be practically non-existent.

Rhinoplasty Risks and Complications

The patient will experience bruising, discomfort and swelling for a few weeks after the nose surgery. Painkillers can be used during the rhinoplasty post op period. It’s important to note that the swelling will gradually reduce during the course of a year. A study on rhinoplasty complications by Paulo Fernando Tormin Borges Crosara reveals that between 1,56% and 2,73% of patients may experience breathing disturbances which will require reoperation after surgery.

Rhinoplasty Success Rates

rhinoplasty success rates survey by Guyuron B. and Bokhari F., based on 468 nose surgery reviews sets the satisfaction rate at around 91%. Males generally tend to be less satisfied with rhinoplasty results.

Before and After Rhinoplasty

While rhinoplasty before and after pictures may look appealing it’s worthy to note that the nose will take its final shape in around 12 months after the surgery, so patience and carefully following the doctor’s instructions are the key to a successful rhinoplasty procedure. Patients are generally more satisfied with their look and overall life – this is one of the reasons why rhinoplasty is so popular among men and women around the world.

Rhinoplasty FAQ

- At what age can I have a rhinoplasty procedure?
Patients need to have a complete physiological development before undergoing nose surgery – this usually means around 16 years old for girls and around 17 years old for boys.

- When will the swelling go down?
Swelling after a rhinoplasty procedure will gradually go down from the first days of the recovery period up until 5-6 weeks after the procedure. At 6 weeks, some swelling will remain but it shouldn’t be very visible. The swelling will be fully reduced in around a year.

- Is rhinoplasty painful?
The nose surgery itself is not painful, as the patient will be administered anaesthesia but patients can feel discomfort, stuffiness of the nose and nasal pressure during the recovery period.

Types of Rhinoplasty

Closed Rhinoplasty

Closed rhinoplasty is the most popular choice for doctors and patients alike since the incisions made by the plastic surgeon are all hidden away inside the nose, leaving the patient with no external scars. Once the necessary incisions are made, the soft tissue of the nose is lifted, leaving the doctor with access to the cartilage and bone. Changes are then done to the nose according to the patient’s wishes. From this point onward, a closed rhinoplasty is very much similar to an open one, but a closed rhinoplasty offers certain advantages in comparison to other types, such as:

  • Faster and easier recovery period for the patient once the procedure is done
  • The surgery itself takes less time than other types of rhinoplasty
  • Less visible scarring for the patient after the recovery period
  • Less chance of swelling
  • Less chance of post-op nasal irritation

Open Rhinoplasty

Patients who require extensive changes to their nose may opt for an open rhinoplasty. Your plastic surgeon will decide if this is the best option for you, depending on your wishes and expectations from the procedure. Open rhinoplasty requires an incision in the columella – the skin area between the nostrils, just underneath the nose itself. This incision allows the doctor to lift the skin and reveal the cartilage and bone inside the nasal cavity, adding or removing tissue as necessary. While some surgeons will recommend an open rhinoplasty from the start, certain doctors will only use this technique in certain cases such as revision surgery or extensive changes to the nose. Most of the time, the best candidates for open rhinoplasty include patients with one or more of the following:

  • Severe deformities in the nose caused by trauma
  • Structural or genetic deformities of the nose
  • Dissatisfaction with previous nose surgery procedures
  • Collapsed valves from nose hump removal

 

Filler Rhinoplasty

Filler rhinoplasty or injection rhinoplasty is a relatively new non-surgical technique which uses injectable fillers to correct and improve the appearance of the nose. Since it doesn’t require any incisions, this procedure can be performed by a wide range of specialists, including general plastic surgeons, cosmetic surgeons, assistants as well as dermatologists. The biggest disadvantage of filler rhinoplasty is the fact that the results are not permanent and patients will be required to make another visit to the doctor in a few months. Although rare, fillers can also produce scarring within the skin.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty refers to opting for another nose job surgery after patients were dissatisfied with the results of their primary rhinoplasty or seek other changes not originally mentioned during the first rhinoplasty. Most patients have another rhinoplasty performed for minor touch ups such as irregularities or bums on the nose bridge while other patients may opt for this procedure due to breathing problems. All established plastic surgeons have a revision rate – if a certain doctor doesn’t have a revision rate or has a very low one, it’s due to patients opting for another doctor for their revision. The average rhinoplasty revision rate is between 10 and 15%.
