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

You need to follow some instructions before your cochlear implant surgery such as:

•             Do not take aspirin or ibuprofen for 10 days before surgery.

•             Wash your hair the night before surgery. Do not wear any makeup or jewelry the day of surgery.

•             Do not eat or drink anything (including water) after midnight before surgery. 

•             You may brush your teeth, but do not swallow any water. 

How It Is Performed

A cochlear implant is an electronic hearing device to produce useful hearing sensations to a person with severe to profound nerve deafness by electrically stimulating nerves inside the inner ear.

These implants usually consist of 2 main components:

•             The external microphone, sound processor and transmitter system.

•             The inner receiver and electrode system, which contains the electronic circuits that receive signals from the external system and send electrical currents to the inner ear. 

Materials

Cochlear implants are highly innovative medical devices and the only technology that is capable of functionally restoring one of the five senses. The two main components of cochlear implants surgical procedure include the implant and the external component. 

Recovery

Recovery process contain some warnings and precautions such as:

•             You may not do any heavy lifting and you may not do any vigorous exercises 

•             Do not bend. If you need to bend over to pick up something, bend at your knees.

•             You may shampoo your hair 48 hours after surgery carefully. 

•             Do not take any medication containing aspirin or ibuprofen for 10 days after surgery 

•             You may attend travel flights usually one week after surgery. 

Side Effects

People with a cochlear implant may come across some cochlear implant risks such as:

•             Sound impressions from an implant differ from normal hearing, according to people who could hear before they became deaf. At first, users describe the sound as "mechanical", "technical", or "synthetic". This perception changes over time, and most users do not notice this artificial sound quality after a few weeks of cochlear implant use.

•             The implant may destroy any remaining hearing in the implanted ear.

•             The cochlear implant stimulates the nerves directly with electrical currents. Although this stimulation appears to be safe, the long-term effect of these electrical currents on the nerves is unknown.

•             There is no test a person can take before surgery that will predict how well he or she will understand language after surgery. 

Before And After

Cochlear implant should implement as early as possible in a case of sudden single sided deafness, and that it is an excellent therapeutic option for patients with single-sided deafness and tinnitus, especially when the tinnitus appears after the deafness after evaluating its pros and cons.
