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 Breast Cancer Treatment

If the patient is suffering from breast cancer symptoms and is diagnosed by an oncologist, the patient is suitable for breast cancer treatment. However, the doctor would decide on the exact type of treatment.

Discharge From Hospital

One night or out-patient

Duration Of Operation

It is up to breast cancer treatment type

Preparation

There is no certain preparation needed for both chemotherapy treatment and radiation therapy. It is generally advised to undergo any scheduled medical procedures (such as a visit in dentist’s office) before deciding for them – during breast cancer treatment and for some time after it, it may be impossible to undergo other medical treatments. In the case of other types of treatment, such as breast cancer surgery, it is advised to talk to your oncologist to get suggestions about the proper preparation.

How It Is Performed

For patients with early stages of breast cancer, local, less invasive treatments are performed, such as radiation therapy and breast cancer surgery. Performing radiation therapy as a breast cancer treatment might require a few sessions while breast cancer surgery may be a one-time procedure. Still, it is subjected to cancer diagnosis and developments during and after the treatment.
For patients who are suffering from advanced stages of breast cancer, holistic procedures are performed. During chemotherapy treatment, drugs are injected into the patient’s body. However, during chemotherapy, healthy cells get harmed as well. Therefore there is a need for a long recovery period. Other alternative treatment methods include targeted therapy and hormone therapy, which harms the patient’s body less. Depending on the patient’s condition, these treatments may take one or several sessions.

Recovery

The recovery period of breast cancer treatment depends on the type of treatment performed. For instance, performing radiation therapy for breast cancer might be related to the recovery period that lasts for months because of the side effects of radiation. The patient might experience the effects of chemotherapy treatment for years, but most of the time, patients return to their regular life during the first months of the recovery process.

Risks

Even though all kinds of breast cancer treatments involve certain risks and complications, these are not very significant since breast cancer treatment’s main goal is to save the patient’s life. However, breast cancer treatment risks involve damage to vital organs such as lungs or liver as well as paint, either real or phantom (in the case of performed breast cancer surgery – mastectomy).

Side Effects

Breast cancer treatment methods cause some side effects to the patient. Chemotherapy treatment and radiation therapy have several side effects that include:
• Chronic pain – abdominal, joint, chest, breast, and other places
• General weakness
• Damage to organs and probable complications associated with this situation
• Sweating
• Swelling
• Vomiting

Success Rates

As medicine progresses, the results of breast cancer treatment improve. It was found that the 5-year survival rate of breast cancer treatment is at 89% while the 10-year survival rate is around 83%, and the 15-year survival rate is around 78%.

Before And After

e patients who are suffering from breast cancer and had breast cancer treatment experiences changes in their lives. The patients might experience the side effects of chemotherapy, radiation treatment, or targeted therapy for months or years. Also, it is possible that the patient’s general life quality might never be as good as it was before cancer treatment. Additionally, the patients who had breast cancer surgery might experience problems with social stigma associated with mastectomy. However, rising awareness of breast cancer makes this problem increasingly irrelevant.t.

Faq

Which Treatment is the Best for Breast Cancer?
There is no certain answer for “the best” breast cancer treatment. The type of breast cancer therapy depends on cancer diagnosis, stage of breast cancer as well as patient’s condition. Therefore, the doctor might recommend breast cancer surgery for a patient and chemotherapy treatment for another.

Is there such a Thing as Male Breast Cancer?
Yes. Even though it is thought that breast cancer is a female disease, male patients can also suffer from it. Yet, many patients who are suffering from breast cancer treatment are females.

Aren’t Side Effects of Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy MoreDamaging than Breast Cancer?
Even though, there are several severe side effects of radiation therapy or chemotherapy treatment, it is not worth risking your life to avoid them.
