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

Before opting for a full tummy tuck surgery or a complete abdominoplasty, it is recommended that patients inform themselves over the risks and complications of the procedure. Patients should have good general health, apply a healthy diet and stop smoking at least one month before and after the operation.

How It Is Performed

A full abdominoplasty or traditional tummy tuck surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, and it takes between two to five hours. 
The surgeon makes a horizontally-oriented incision in the area between the pubic hairline and belly button. A full tummy tuck surgery involves a second vertical incision in order to change the position of the navel and to create a more appealing result.The shape and length of the incisions will be determined by the amount of excess skin patients have. During the surgery, surgeons can tighten the muscles by pulling them closer together and stitching them to give a more toned look and to create a smaller waistline.This is the muscle repair stage of the surgery. Sometimes liposuction might be used to improve the results by removing the undesired fat tissue, and the excess skin is also removed.

After the full abdominoplasty is complete, the incisions are closed using surgical stitches and the full tummy tuck recovery period can begin

Recovery

Depending on the scope of the procedure and the patient's condition, the average full tummy tuck surgery recovery may last from one to four weeks. During this process, patients should avoid heavy lifting and are advised to take at least a few weeks off from work. Patients should wear a compression garment that can reduce swelling and bruising. This garment helps the skin conform to the new body shape. Also, smoking should be avoided for several weeks after the procedure.

Risks

Possible full tummy tuck risks and complications include: 
• Bleeding 
• Anesthesia complications 
• Fat necrosis 
• Asymmetry 
• Pulmonary embolism

• Delayed healing
• Thrombosis 
• Infection 
• Possibility of revision surgery 
• Skin discoloration 
• Suture rupture 
• Fluid accumulation

• Visible Scars

Side Effects

A full abdominoplasty can have several side effects, including: 
• Swelling 
• Bruising 

• Soreness or tenderness
• Post-surgical tummy tuck scars 
• Temporary discomfort

• Low back pain

Success Rates

The procedure has a 95% success rate according to patients’ reviews

Before And After

If patients follow their doctor's instructions carefully, they will be more satisfied with the results. If patients adopt a healthy lifestyle and maintain their weight in a stable and healthy range, the results of the surgery may last for years.

 

The benefits of the full tummy tuck operation are: 
• Improved self-confidence

• Improved appearance and body proportion

• Tighter abdominal muscles

• Tight and flat abdominal skin

Faq

Full Tummy Tuck Vs. Mini Tummy Tuck
Complete abdominoplasty is more complex and involves two incisions and sutures while affecting a larger area of the abdomen. While a mini tummy tuck needs only a small incision, the skin shaped on the lower abdomen will be more limited in size.

Are There Any Alternatives to A Full Abdominoplasty Or Full Tummy Tuck?
Cosmetics can be used to tighten the skin but they do not remove the excess skin and they are not as effective as full tummy tuck surgery. Also, some non-surgical alternatives like coolsculpting, lasers, and thermage can be chosen but only for minor changes. 

What’s the Difference Between A Liposuction And Full Tummy Tuck?
With a full tummy tuck, both excess fat and skin are removed while with liposuction, only the excess fat is removed.
