Istanbul Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center

My experience with Istanbul aesthetic centre was amazing. I had to go to turkey alone so I was very anxious but Abdul coordinated everything well.

Estetik International Clinic

What an absolutely amazing experience. The ambiance of the clinic is excellent , staff were very professional from reception all the way to the doctors. Procedure was as expected and they continued to follow up with after care calls everyday since the procedure. The doctor was amazing I could not have been happier with everything from beginning to end.

Istinye University Liv Hospital Bahcesehir

I went to Turkey for diagnostics at the Istinye clinic, there are many impressions and, unfortunately, they are not very good. To begin with, the clinic itself is good and the equipment is also at the level, everything went quickly and waited for the result. Because quarantine began in Turkey, flew home, and here it began, although the coordinators promised to keep in touch with me. In short, they discouraged all the desire to go there again and do the operation there! Because it all depends on your coordinator and translator. They only work well with people who pay a lot and no questions asked. I do not advise you to go there, just because everything is decided not by the doctor, but by the coordinator, he even provides you with the prices !!!! There is only one negative left !!!! Ездила в Турцию на диагностику в клинику Истинье, впечатлений много и к сожалению они не очень хорошие. Начну с того, что сама клиника хорошая и оборудование тоже на уровне, все прошла быстро и ждала результат. Т.к. в Турции начался карантин, вылетела домой, вот тут и началось, хотя обещали держать со мной связь координаторы. Если коротко сказать, то отбили все желание ехать туда повторно и делать там операцию! Т.к.все зависит от вашего координатора и переводчика. Они работают хорошо только с теми, кто платит много и без вопросов. Не советую ездить туда, только потому, что все решает ни врач а координатор, даже цены вам предоставляет он!!!! Остался один негатив!!!!

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.

  • certificate of income and availability of funds ($50 per day per person)
