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 Pacemaker

While pacemaker procedure is relatively safe, some patients may take other treatments into consideration. For example, patients with atrial fibrillation can decide for catheter ablation procedure instead of pacemaker surgery. During the visit in doctor’s office, you are free to ask about other irregular heartbeat treatments available.

Additionally, some older patients may not be able to undergo pacemaker placement. If it is the case, doctors will suggest other ways of dealing with their abnormal heart rhythm.

Preparation

Preparation for pacemaker surgery consists mainly of a series of tests, aiming at gathering data about your heart rhythm and health. These usually include electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, Holter monitoring and stress test.

Additionally, you will be asked to produce a list of your medical conditions and medicines you take in order to exclude potentially damaging medicines around the time of your pacemaker operation. You will be asked to fast for the day of the pacemaker surgery and take a long shower using special soap.

How It Is Performed
The pacemaker procedure is conducted under local anaesthesia. Firstly, the wires are inserted with the help of a needle into one’s veins and then to heart. In the second phase of pacemaker surgery, doctors connect the wires with pacemaker device which is inserted under one’s skin or deeper into the abdomen. Then the incisions are closed and the pacemaker operation comes to an end.
Recovery
Pacemaker surgery recovery is rather easy to stand. Initially, patients may feel uneasy with pacemaker device but this feeling passes with time. Similarly, patients may feel pain during first days after pacemaker operation but it is manageable with painkillers. Usually, after the first night, they are free to go home. For the first 4-6 weeks of pacemaker surgery recovery, patients are dissuaded from engaging in strenuous physical activities. Sometimes they may be advised against spending a long time next to electrical devices.
Risks

While pacemaker procedure is thought to be a relatively safe one, still there are pacemaker risks worth taking into consideration. These include:

• Infections

• Neural damage

• Damage to veins

• Repositioning of wires or pacemaker which often necessitates another pacemaker procedure to adjust their positions.

• Lung collapse (very rare)

• Heart puncturation (very rare)

Additionally, on rare occasions patients may experience pacemaker problems – it may not work properly due to its own faulty or influence of other electrical devices. For this reason, patients are advised to not stay close and for long period of time next to strong electricity generators as well as body scanners.

Side Effects
Living with a pacemaker means that we need to accept some pacemaker side effects. First of all, to pacemaker side effects belongs feeling uneasy, being aware of the pacemaker. Additionally, security scanners will often beep as a reaction to metal parts of your pacemaker device. Finally, you need to stay away from devices generating strong magnetic and electric field in order to prevent the occurrence of any pacemaker problems.
Success Rates
Success rates for pacemaker procedure are extremely high at more than 99%. This shows that there is basically nothing to worry when it comes to pacemaker surgery and surgery-related pacemaker risks.

What Is a Pacemaker?

A pacemaker is a medical device which helps to stabilise abnormal heart rhythm. It is inserted under one’s skin and connected to the heart by wires, through which an electric signal is sent every time the heart rhythm becomes abnormal.


Is Living with a Pacemaker Hard?

No, living with a pacemaker is not as hard as one would think. New pacemaker types offer the possibility to intervene only if they detect an abnormal heart rhythm. Apart from some minor pacemaker side effects, life goes pretty much the same for people after pacemaker operation.


How Long Does the Pacemaker Battery Last?

It depends on the patient but a pacemaker battery’s lifespan may be from 5 to 15 years, with 6-9 thought to be a standard.
