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.

Preparation

If you have other medical problems, first you should inform your doctor. Then, a CT scan and different tests may require. Eating something before the operation is forbidden just as drinking anything hours before the operation. In some cases, mechanical bowel may be performed, but there are alternatives, and some doctors have doubts about this procedure has positive effects.

How It Is Performed

Cystectomy operation may be performed in two pays; partial or total bladder removal. In partial removal, doctors remove only scar tissue on the bladder and stitch up. In total bladder removal, the whole organ is removed. The second type of cystectomy generally performed if a patient has bladder cancer. During the operation, other organs and tissues may be removed with bladder as well. Cystectomy may be performed as open surgery through an incision on the abdomen. If partial bladder removal is performed, doctors may perform laparoscopic surgery, and it can be performed with a few small incisions. After the whole bladder removal, doctors have a few options to choose for the reorganization of a urinating system according to patient’s needs. A way to reorganize urinating system that becoming popular is called neobladder, a new bladder constituted from a piece of intestine. Another popular way is the ileal conduit or cystostomy. Patients can urinate with a created stoma and catheter. 

Recovery

The recovery period after cystectomy operation based on the type and extent of one’s bladder removal. Partial cystectomy’s healing process more rapid than radical cystectomy operation, due to chemotherapy and radiation therapy which needed after radical cystectomy. Generally, it takes to rest in the hospital for about a week. While you rest in hospital you’ll take strong painkillers and doctors will focus on your healing process. After this week, patients can leave the hospital. When you get into your normal function, doctors recommend you to walk and exercise, in case of neobladder creation, it will be more important to increase the time of urine kept in neobladder. The recovery process may take 6-8 weeks for the whole period of cystectomy.

Risks

Success Rates

This operation’s success rate is based on the problem and the extent of bladder removal. The success rate depends on the stages and kinds of bladder cancer, changing from %50 to %90.
