FaQ – Plastic Surgery

People opt for plastic surgery in Turkey because it is often more affordable than in many Western countries. Additionally, Turkey is home to many renowned and experienced plastic surgeons who operate in state-of-the-art hospitals and clinics. Beyond the medical advantages, Turkey offers the opportunity to combine the surgical experience with a vacation, and patients can also benefit from quicker appointment and procedure scheduling due to shorter waiting times.

Yes, plastic surgery in Turkey is generally cheaper than in many Western countries due to lower operational costs and the competitive medical tourism market.

Preparation for plastic surgery can involve several steps, including undergoing a medical evaluation or lab testing, stopping smoking well in advance of the procedure, avoiding taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding, and arranging for someone to drive you to and from surgery and to stay with you for at least the first night following surgery.

Risks can vary depending on the specific procedure but may include infection, scarring, complications from anesthesia, unsatisfactory results, and the need for revision surgery. Discussing potential risks with your surgeon is crucial.

Choosing the right plastic surgeon involves verifying their board certification in plastic surgery, reviewing before-and-after photos of their work, considering their experience in the specific procedure you’re interested in, and ensuring you feel comfortable with their approach and communication style.

During a consultation, the surgeon will assess your health, discuss your surgical goals, recommend a course of treatment, discuss potential outcomes of the surgery and any risks or potential complications, and answer any questions you may have.

The recovery period can vary widely depending on the procedure. Minor surgeries may require only a few days of recovery, while more extensive procedures might require several weeks to months for full recovery. Your surgeon will provide specific guidelines based on the procedure.

While many plastic surgery results are long-lasting, factors such as aging, weight fluctuations, and lifestyle choices can affect the longevity of the results. Maintenance procedures might be necessary to retain the desired outcome.

Many surgeons offer financing plans, and there are medical credit cards and personal loans available through financial institutions. It’s important to understand all costs involved and your payment options before proceeding with surgery.

Cosmetic plastic surgery is performed to enhance or change a healthy, normal body to improve appearance and self-esteem. Reconstructive plastic surgery is performed to correct abnormal structures of the body caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors, or disease to restore function and appearance.
