Спасибо что вы есть!!!
I needed to have a spinal mri in Italy, and couldn’t find any clinic that could do it. It was either a 4 month wait, clinic never called me back, or they hung up because my Italian wasn’t very good. I contacted Bookimed and within hours they responded and put me in touch with a lovely woman in Milan who got me an appointment at a private clinic in Milan in 2 days. She accompanied me throughout the appointment and translated when necessary. Something I dreaded ended up being a smooth and easy process. Thank you.

Thanksfull to bookimed for help me for my surgery in my brain they support me by one of best doctor in that section and he advised me many choices of surgery and hospital offers . I hope see them in top always they deserve 5 Stars. 😊
После предварительного собеседования. Предоставиди выбор из несскольких клиник. Связали с представителем выбранной клиники. Дали контакты. Все дальнейшее общении и информацию получал напрямую от представителя клиники. Никаки предоплат не требовалось. Все договоренности были выполнены по заранее договоренным датам, без каких либо накладок. Договор на мед обслуживани заключался в клинике непосредственно перед госпитализацией. Спасибо сайту за грамотную оценку необходимых услуг и быстрый выход на необходимую клинику.
I had to book 3 appointments in a hospital at Istanbul for my brother and his wife, both with serious health problems. I have contacted Bookimed who had reacted immediately and put me in touch with Dr Emad Hussein. After listening to the description of the sicknesses of my relatives, Dr Hussein explained very clearly what are the medical documents to have for the day of appointment as well as all administrative steps to follow. Then he put in touch with Mrs Farah from Liv Hospital for the appointments and she has been very efficient and helpful. I do not know how to thank Dr Hussein and bookimed for the excellent service provided. Nadia

Очень и очень довольна взаимодействием с Букимед. Прошла лечение от рака молочной железы. В ноябре 2018 года летала на обследование в Стамбул, клиники Медиполь и Анадолу. Помогли с билетами, организацией поездки, всегда оставались на связи. Координатор от Букимеда имеет медицинское образование, может качественно проконсультировать по поводу клиник, врачей. Лично для меня это большой плюс. До этого я лечилась в Израиле, организовывала все своими силами и потратила несравнимо больше времени, сил и нервов. Буду работать с Букимед в будущем и рекомендовать знакомым.
Very helpful and nice people. They’re quick on response, and they give the best recommendations.
My experience with bookimad was great; the thing that I appreciate is the high sense of humanity of the staff, especially Dr Farruk Ahmed. He answer all my questions in time, he read my poor English and make me feel comfortable, such thing is so important for someone that suffer. I know they do their best to help. Thank you Dr.

Verified review. The patient underwent facelift surgery in Istanbul Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center

I did face lift in Aesthetics hospital end of June 2021. It’s small but clean facility and the main asset in this hospital are the doctors and staff. My face lift was done by doctor Ergin and although I need long time to fully recover I can see great improvement in my looks. I highly recommend dr Ergin for any type of surgery, he’s kind , understanding and professional. Nursing staff are kind but they lack basic English . Bookimed staff and Abdul from Istanbul took very good care of me and I really appreciate it . Thank you to All

Hi, ich hatte eine Bruststraffung mit Implantaten und möchte meine Erfahrungen gerne teilen. Ich wurde vom Flughafen abgeholt und ins Hotel gefahren, was super geklappt hat!Da ich erst am nächsten Tag den Op Termin hatte, habe ich die erste Nacht im Hotel geschlafen und wurde dann morgens von meiner Dolmetscherin Nevin abgeholt und in die Klinik gebracht die wirklich nur zwei Minuten zu Fuß entfernt war! Dort angekommen wartete mein Op Arzt Dr. Ergin Er schon auf mich um die Op endgültig nach meinen Wünschen vorzuplanen ich fühlt mich sehr gut aufgehoben! Seine Art beruhigt einen also mich hat sie beruhigt. Alles abgesprochen ging es weiter zur Blutabnahme die Ärztin für die Narkose stellte mir einige Fragen ob ich Medikamente nehme oder an Krankheiten leite etc. halbe Stunde später war ich schon in der Op. 3 Stunden war ich in Narkose die üblichen Dinge die sich kaum vermeiden lassen zb Übelkeit oder schmerzen nach der Narkose sind auch mir passiert aber dem sollte man sich im Klaren sein wenn man plant eine Operation zu machen! Genauso wie man nicht kalt kochen kann kann man auch schmerzen nach einer Operation nicht vermeiden, lindern durch schmerztabletten. Man bekommt Antibiotika und Schmerzmittel. Ein Tag später konnte ich im Hotel schon schlafen und zwei Tage später wurden die drainagen gezogen (unangenehm aber auszuhalten, müssen sowieso raus). Das Hotel sehr schön sauber riecht so lecker irgendwie und die Hotelfachangestellten super nett und zuvorkommend. Sie wissen das man eine Operation hatte und sind sehr hilfsbereit. Essen top! Man geht dann ab und zu so wie es der Dr. veranlasst zu Kontrolle ansonsten you need to rest und am letzten (7.) Tag geht man zum verbandwechsel und wird dann zum Flughafen von den zuständigen gestellten Taxen gebracht auch nette Leute sehr hilfsbereit! Ich habe nichts negatives zu sagen weil nichts vorgefallen ist was mich verärgert oder enttäuscht hat! Wer sich hier behandeln lassen möchte macht alles richtig 👍 ich bin sehr zufrieden und froh das ich durch bin 😁 An die Raucher man soll nicht rauchen ja, aber wer raucht sollte sich vorher um Zigaretten kümmern es gibt keine Automaten oder Zigaretten zu kaufen in der Nähe! Ciao 👋

Questions and answers

What is facelift?

Facelift is a cosmetic surgery that allows giving a face a more youthful appearance. During a facelift, excessive skin is removed, and then a doctor forms a “youthful” contour of the face or neck. As a result, the skin becomes smooth, young, and without wrinkles.

Facelift can be performed both in a surgical and a non-surgical way.

What are the indications for facelift surgery?

Facelift surgery is recommended for people aged 40-60. Rarely, but it can be also performed for patients aged over 70. Indications for a facelift procedure may be the following:

  • double chin
  • droopy eyelids
  • deep facial wrinkles
  • drooping eyes corners
  • vertical wrinkles on the cheeks
  • facial soft tissue ptosis
  • excessive fat and loose skin on the neck.

If you are not satisfied with your appearance and want to do facelift surgery, consult with a doctor to decide whether you are a good candidate for the procedure. 

What are contraindications for facelift?

Modern facelift techniques are safe and do not have many contraindications. However, in the case when a surgical facelift is performed, a procedure is not recommended for people with:

  • neoplasms (especially, malignant ones)
  • bleeding disorder
  • severe diseases of the internal organs
  • some disorders of the nervous system
  • severe hypertonia
  • epilepsy.

To the relative contraindications may be included the following conditions:

  • pregnancy
  • lactation
  • infections
  • inflammatory processes
  • skin diseases.

If you have any of these conditions or other health disorders, inform your doctor to discuss the possibility of facelift surgery in your case.

What is a preoperative preparation for facelift in Turkey?

Preoperative preparation for facelift surgery in Turkey can differ depending on the type of procedure. Fora  surgical operation, it consists of the following steps:

  1. A doctor surveys a patient; the future result is discussed.
  2. Analysis (blood and urine tests, ECG, examinations for blood clotting, etc.). 
  3. A patient needs to give up smoking, drinking alcohol, taking some pills for 2 weeks before surgery.
  4. 8 hours before a procedure, a patient does not eat and drink.

What is a facelift process?

The facelift process depends on the type of the procedure. This an outpatient operation, so admission is not required. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia or sedation. The process takes 2-5 hours.

First of all, an anesthesiologist applies a chosen type of anesthesia. Then, a plastic surgeon makes an incision in front of the ear, extending it to the hairline. If the reduction of the chin is planned, a doctor also makes an incision under it.

When all incisions have been made, a plastic surgeon separates the skin from other tissues. Then, skin is lifted with special instruments, and its excess is removed.

When all manipulations are done, a surgeon fixates and lifts tissues and muscles, all punctures are stitched up with absorbable sutures. Then, special bandages are applied.

How long does a full recovery from facelift take?

An intensive recovery period takes 1 month.

After surgery, small hematomas and swelling occur. However, they disappear soon. A patient can feel a discomfort in the places of stitching. If necessary, a doctor prescribes painkillers.

In 2 days, the bandage is removed. 

A patient can return to a normal lifestyle in about a month. 

The final result is observed in half of the year. 

What are the side effects of facelift?

Despite the fact that facelift is considered a quite safe procedure, side effects may also take place. Among them are:

  • hematomas. They usually occur in 24 hours after surgery. Luckily, they disappear soon.
  • Scarring. In most cases, scars are hardly visible or hidden under the hairline.
  • Nerve injury. The doctor’s manipulations may damage nerves, so a patient can lose the sensitivity of some skin areas. Normally, it recovers after some time.
  • Bleeding (rare).
  • Infections (rare).
  • Hair loss. Temporary or permanent hair loss is possible around the places of incisions.

How many times is it possible to have a facelift in Turkey?

You can do facelift as many times as you need. Note that the result of facelift lasts about 7-12 years.

How many years will I look younger after facelift?

Facelift cannot slow down or stop facial aging. It allows you improving your face making it younger at the moment. The result completely depends on your age, bone and skin structure, hereditary, lifestyle. Also, you need to be realistic about the result: it is impossible to look 20 years old when you are 60 in fact.

Are the scars noticeable after facelift in Turkey?

After facelift surgery, scars remain. However, they are almost invisible. The deal is that a doctor makes incisions in the hairy area to hide the traces. Also, the professionalism of a plastic surgeon plays a crucial role: experienced doctors in Turkey manipulate very accurately, so scars are tiny and almost inconspicuous.

What is the level of medicine in Turkey?

Healthcare is the key development sector of the Turkish government. The Turkish authorities are convinced that care for the citizens' health should be an absolute priority of state policy and spend about 77 billion liras for healthcare annually.

As a result, 28,000 medical facilities provide excellent medical care in the country. About 50 centers have certificate of JCI (Joint Commission International), the international improver of healthcare quality and safety across the globe. The index of certificates obtained is the largest. To compare, Israel has 20 JCI-accredited facilities, and Germany — only 10 clinics of this type.

Why is Turkey trendy for medical tourism?

Turkey is also a well-known country globally due to high-skilled doctors that undergo internships in American and European institutions. Patients from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, the UAE, Jordan, and Lebanon prefer treatment in Turkey to other places.

Highly developed medical centers and first-rate therapeutic services at affordable prices attract people from all over the world. Over 1 mln international patients travel to Turkey annually. So Turkey is among Top 10 countries with the most developed medical tourism sector.

Turkey is a top destination for medical tourists because of low-costs. You may save up to 50% on services compared to European countries or the USA due to the average local citizens' income and general price policy within the country.

What hotel services are provided here?

In Turkey, hotels of different price ranges and service levels are presented. The level of Turkish hotels is comparable to hotels in Tunisia, Morocco or Egypt. Most tourists choose 4 and 5 star hotels with all-inclusive meals. Such hotels have everything for a comfortable stay: varied food, a large well-groomed territory, animation for children and adults. Some hotels have their own water park, which guests can use for free. Budget travelers can afford to book an economical 3-star hotel with half board or no meals at all.

When is the best time to travel to Turkey?

The main advantage of Turkish resorts is the long beach season. On the Mediterranean coast, it starts in April and lasts until November. In the resorts of the Aegean Sea — from May to October. The most comfortable time for swimming is from mid-June to the end of October. A large influx of tourists is in July-August, when the air temperature is +38°C, and the water warms up to +27°C.

Do I need a visa?

In 2020, the Republic of Turkey has visa-free agreements with 89 states. Some foreigners are exempted from obtaining entry visas, others are required to receive an electronic visa (e-Visa), and still others must apply for a visa at Turkish missions abroad.

What states need a visa for treatment in Turkey and what countries can cross the border free and easy read here.

What documents are required to apply for a visa to Turkey for treatment?

Visas for travel to Turkey require a number of documents. The necessary papers can be submitted 90 days before the planned departure. Lists of documents includes:

  • ID card
  • confirmation of online registration and filling out the questionnaire
  • certificate of income and availability of funds ($50 per day per person)
  • insurance policy for a stay in Turkey (original and copy)
