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.

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.
Nadia
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
Марі Сірик
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.
Vex
Very helpful and nice people. They’re quick on response, and they give the best recommendations.
Yamina BOUTICHE
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 tummy tuck in Istanbul Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center

Good afternoon, I arrived on August 5 at night, the transfer took me to the hotel (included in the package), and on 6 in the morning I was at the clinic. After meeting with all the doctors and taking tests (blood), I was operated on (duration 3.5 hours). clinic, no complaints about the service, everything is fine. The doctor Ergir Er is a professional, speaks to the point, does not pour a lot of text, I liked it. After the operation, nothing hurts, now two weeks after the operation there is swelling on the genitals and under the seam, but everything will pass. There was a hernia on diastasis - the doctor changed everything, repaired Добрый день, прилетела 5 августа ночью, трансфер довез меня в отель( включено в пакет), и 6 утром была в клинике.после встреч со всеми врачами и сдачи анализов ( кровь), меня прооперировали( длительность 3.5 часа).2 дня была в клинике, жалоб на обслуживание нет, все хорошо. Врач Эргир Эр профессионал, говорит по делу, много текста не льёт, это мне понравилось. После операции ничего не болит, сейчас две недели после операции есть отёк на гениталиях и под швом, но все пройдёт. Была грыжа на диастазе- врач все перешил, отремонтировал

Verified review. The patient underwent tummy tuck in Hisar Intercontinental Hospital

I am a Registered Intensive Care Nurse in the US so knowing that Hisar Intercontinental Hospital is JCI certified( main reason I choose this hospital) gave me some assurance! I made the booking through bookimed who by the way were so accommodating with my dates , bookimed gave me more than two options in two countries and allowed me to choose what was best for me. I choose Hisar intercontinental hospital . After the decision was made I was contacted by a international coordinator from the hospital who tells you about airport pickup and coordinates your appointment with the surgeon, labs and appointment with anesthesia. The appointment with the surgeon was scheduled the day before the surgery unfortunately due to the European strikes I missed my flight and only arrived late the day before the surgery ( lab work and the anesthesia appointment was still done on that day). Appointment day- I met the surgeon and after consent surgery was done! I spent 3 days and 2 nights in the hospital because I needed it, I was given blood transfusions when needed, the nurses were agreeable Pros:hospital is clean, food is ok, up to date equipment( bp machines, iv catheters, hospital bed, )tv in room, toiletries and slippers provided, hot water in showers, cleaning service twice a day,Wi-Fi available, etc, all medications were given on time, nurses responsive to patient( I had them change my IV 4 times) Cons:language. Almost nobody speaks English! Get yourself the translator app. Translator only works day shift so you are on your own at night. 2.be your own advocate, if you feel something is off or if you know something should be done e.g lab work etc insist on it and it will be done.being a nurse I knew when my vitals were off and when interventions were needed so I insisted on the interventions and they were eventually done Overall good hospital.✅

I'm giving 5 stars for a great job! The clinic turned out to be even better than I expected, and the staff was so caring that it was worthy of all praise! Very kind and responsive everyone who helped me on my way to surgery. I really want to emphasise that Chengiz (clinic manager) was like my mom and dad. I hope we will remain good friends! The clinic is clean and beautiful, the medical staff is just the highest class, and that's the minimum I could say about them. And of course, the cherry on the cake is amazing Dr. Ali Nurkhan, a virtuoso of his business! Thank you all very much, I got a wonderful experience!! I'm giving 5 stars for a great job!

What an amazing experience. As many if you, few google search and I landed on bookimed among other sites, after few message exchanges with the lot, I decided to go with bookimed, what influenced my decision the most was Dr Bakr, who was amazingly caring and understanding and helpful all the time, I have literally bombard him with so many questions still all my queries were answered with no delay regardless the time. My experience in turkey was nevertheless the same , very welcoming and warm reception at the airport to the hotel and to the hospital the next day , met by cengiz then doctor mehmet ( the best doctor ever ), thereafter it was cengiz turn to be bombard

Verified review. The patient underwent tummy tuck in Estetik International

The building is 5 stars, clean and decorated in the best possible way. Alot of patient assistants, but at the same time, it is actually a problem. When a patient approaches the clinic through email, he is responded to from a russian no. Then the patient is forwarded to a public relations employee that will talk to him in detail about what procedures he want to do and is told the prices and when he arrives at the clinic he is forwarded to a third individual which is the patient assistant. While in process you do not know who should follow up with you. Dr. B is a good plastic surgeon, but lacks patient communication. You just are allowed to see him once and not more, incase you need reassurance. Dr. Gina on the other hand is a fabulous dermatologist and has great patient doctor communication and has great work ethics. Regarding the clinic's finances prices are not unified for each procedure, they have multiple prices depending on the patient's status and can even change for the same patient depending on their mood. For example blood investigation costs $65 if you will have surgery and $150 if you will not, even if they told you its $65 they change their mind later. They give you a price for ultraformer and then the prices shoots up a 100% when you arrive to the clinic based on your looks. In my humble opinion, health should not be considered a business because you need to trust the facility and Doctors before submitting your body to them. Revising this opinion might help the clinic on the long run.

Istanbul Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center

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 👋

will not say that so much the administrative staff is not so good, more arrogant , see interact with the beauty of people only more speak, and therefore cancel the operation,

FAQ about Tummy tuck

What is a tummy tuck?

Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is an operation for the abdominal saggy skin removal, stomach defects elimination, and proportions restoration. With the help of tummy tuck, you get rid of the hanging belly fat that appears after a sharp weight loss or childbirth. Quite often, abdominoplasty is combined with liposuction to remove excess fat and saggy stomach skin.

What result can you expect after the procedure?

Tummy tuck helps to cope with:

  • skin stretching and loss of its elasticity after the significant fetus birth or multiple pregnancies
  • sagging skin caused by significant weight loss
  • excess subcutaneous fat layer (the deepest skin layer which cannot be otherwise disposed of)
  • stomach apron.

Abdominoplasty is not a way to get rid of obesity. This operation may be associated with liposuction. In this case, tummy tuck helps to lose excess weight, but not itself.

Who is the right candidate for a tummy tuck?

The main reason for a complete abdominoplasty is the individual desire of the person. Such a primary method is prescribed when nothing helps to correct the abdominal area, and there is no way to go in for sports intensively and regularly.

Abdominoplasty is performed when the lower abdomen is saggy. This occurs after liposuction, childbirth, sudden weight loss with a huge initial weight.

The list of indications for this operation includes:

  • the presence of excess adipose tissue on the anterior abdominal wall and on the body sides (if it cannot be removed by diet and sports)
  • a large number of stretch marks on the abdomen
  • a protruding belly and large waist
  • pregnancy
  • the hereditary weakness of the connective tissue.

How does a patient prepare for a tummy tuck?

There are several steps of the patient's preoperative period:

  • consultation with a plastic surgeon to determine possible contraindications and identify patient's psychological condition
  • examination of the anterior abdominal wall to determine skin turgor, muscle tone and the thickness of the subcutaneous fat layer
  • 3D modeling to predict the outcome of the operation
  • lab tests and screenings (ECG, blood and urine analysis)
  • 2-3 weeks before surgery, a patient stops taking anticoagulants and starts taking vasoconstrictor drugs
  • having received the test results, the patient consults with the anesthetist
  • the doctor can prescribe a special diet
  • during the month before surgery, the patient refrains from alcohol and smoking
  • a week before abdominoplasty, it is worth restricting the use of products that promote the gas formation and fatty, sweet, spicy foods
  • for a couple of days, the patient should reduce physical activity, stop using decorative care cosmetics
  • intake lung sedatives
  • arrival at the clinic on an empty stomach
  • marking on the patient’s body
  • anesthesia introducing.

How is a tummy tuck performed?

On average, abdominoplasty takes about 2-5 hours. The patient is under general anesthesia. Depending on the operated area and the body fat volume, plastic experts choose the most effective type of tummy tuck.

During the complete tummy tuck, not only the abdomen changes but also the area of the back, sides, and buttocks. Plastic surgeons carry out the full abdominoplasty in several steps:

  • the surgeon marks the incisions and areas that are to be removed on the abdomen, sides, and back
  • the specialist administers the anesthesia
  • the doctor cuts the excess skin, and subcutaneous tissue exfoliates the tissues and carefully reduces the navel
  • the plastic surgeon sutures the muscles with non-absorbable threads to completely restore the standard abdominal wall, back, and sides
  • after the excess skin removal, the incisions are sutured, imposing self-absorbable sutures. The surgeon washes wounds and installs drainages.

How long is rehabilitation after a tummy tuck?

Plastic surgeons apply early recovery techniques to shorten the rehabilitation period. In general, it takes about six months, but only the first 1.5 months are the most difficult.

  1. On the first day, the patient is in the ward. To restore bowel function, the patient has light meals.
  2. On the second day, the patient gets out of bed.
  3. On the third day, the surgeon examines the patients, gives recommendations, and discharges the patient.
  4. The patient wears compression underwear, keeps a diet, and limits physical activity. Also, the patient will have to minimize water procedures and independently treat the suture with antiseptics.

What types of abdominoplasty are performed?

There are 2 main types of tummy tuck performed:

  • Mini abdominoplasty — a removal of sagging skin and stretch marks in the lower area of your belly button. This is a procedure for those who do not need to correct the whole stomach zone.
  • Full abdominoplasty — the most common procedure to remove the sagging skin and fat from the lower or the middle area of the abdomen. During the process, a doctor can replace the belly button and tighten muscles to achieve the perfect result.

Only a doctor can determine what type of tummy tuck is the best for you. Please take photos of your belly and send them when you submit a request to get more extensive consultation and accurate prices.

How long will I need to stay in other country after a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is considered a quite complicated procedure, so a patient needs to stay in the clinic for few hours or 1-3 days according to the surgery method. Then, a patient stays in the hotel for 2-4 days to visit a doctor and control the recovery process.

It takes up to 10 nights overall to stay in a particular to process tummy tuck.
