Last but not least, the facilities are on the highest level designed to put the patient fully at ease.

Hello! All liked it. At the airport I was met by the driver and taken to the hotel. The hotel is comfortable next to the clinic. In the morning, the same driver brought me to the clinic. My English is bad, so at the clinic I was met by a manager with an interpreter. After consultation, I passed a blood test and after 15 minutes began the procedure. The most unpleasant thing is when anesthesia is administered, the transplant process itself is painless. After the transplant, they were given all the necessary medicines and taken to the hotel. In the next two days, they were brought to the clinic for treatment of the head for 30 minutes, the rest of the time was free. On the fourth day after the final examination, I purchased a hair care kit (shampoo, oils and vitamins) at the clinic and the driver took me to the airport. A month has passed since the transplant, so I can't say for sure about the result, but in my opinion everything is taking root well and the result will be visible in a few months. The staff is well-coordinated and friendly, they did everything quickly and professionally. I traveled on the recommendation of a friend who transplanted at this clinic a year ago. Здравствуйте! Всё понравилось. В аэропорту встретил водитель и отвёз в отель. Отель комфортный рядом с клиникой. Утром этот же водитель привёз в клинику. У меня плохой английский поэтому в клинике меня встречал менеджер с переводчиком. После консультации, сдал анализ крови и минут через 15 начали процедуру. Самое неприятное это когда вводят анестезию, сам процесс пересадки безболезненный. После пересадки выдали все необходимые медикаменты и отвезли в отель. В последующие два дня привозили в клинику для обработки головы минут на 30, в остальное время был свободен. На четвертый день после заключительного осмотра я приобрёл в клинике набор для ухода за волосами (шампунь, масла и витамины) и водитель отвёз меня в аэропорт. С момента пересадки прошёл месяц, поэтому о результате точно не могу сказать, но на мой взгляд всё хорошо приживается и результат будет виден через несколько месяцев. Персонал слаженный и доброжелательный, делали всё быстро и профессионально. Ездил по рекомендации знакомого, который делал пересадку в этой клинике год назад.

Hotel, transfer, communication at the highest level. I still have a week after the operation, so I can't say anything about the quality, etc. But everything seems to be done efficiently. Don't expect to find yourself in white large chambers. In Turkey, hair transplant is a cosmetic procedure, an ordinary office, nothing supernatural. A doctor + 3 specialists + an accompanying person worked with me. In general, let's see how it will take root. Photos after the operation are asked every 5-7 days and they say that everything is fine. Overall my recommendation. Average price and good clinic plus help. PS there are several floors dealing with pure hair transplant in the clinic, and experience matters. Therefore, it is better to go where the "hand is full". Don't let the photos scare you, everything is standard. The operation is practically painless. 4500 grafts were transplanted to me. It's only unpleasant when injections of an anesthetic are injected. Lots of YouTube videos to watch. I'm glad I went. Отель, трансфер, коммуникация на высшем уровне. У меня пока прошла неделя после операции, потому по качеству и тд не могу сказать ничего. Но вроде как все сделано качественно. Не ожидайте, что вы попадете в белые большие палаты. В Турции пересадка волос косметическая процедура, обычный кабинет, ничего сверхестетсвенного. Со мной работал врач + 3 специалиста + сопровождающий. В общем посмотрим как приживется. Фотографии после операции просят раз в 5-7 дней и говорят что все отлично. В целом моя рекомендация. Средняя цена и хорошая клиника плюс помощь. P.S. там несколько этажей занимается чисто пересадкой волос в клинике, а опыт имеет значение. Потому лучше ехать туда, где "рука набита". Фотографии пусть вас не пугают, все стандартно. Операция практически безболезеннная. 4500 графт мне пересадили. Неприятно только, когда вводят уколы обезбаливающего. Масса видео в ютьюбе для просмотра. Я рад что поехал.

Diagnostics is at the level, but you will not receive a conclusion and diagnosis, there will also be problems with translation into Russian, you will not wait for them. The clinic is not interested in treating you, it is possible to operate, there is no medication. Диагностика на уровне, но вы не получите заключения и диагноза, с переводом на русский язык так же будут проблемы, вы их не дождётесь. Клиника не заинтересована вас лечить, оперировать возможно, медикаментозно нет.

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.

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.

Benim yüzümde kazadan kalan kesik izleri vardı. Maalesef çok kızarık ve kötü gözüküyordu, düzensiz olduğu için hiç bir estetik cerrah ameliyat olamayacağını söyledi. Arda bey lazerle izlerin hafifleyeceğini söyledi. Şuana kadar 4 seans lazer tedavisi gördüm, izlerim hafifledi, artık aynalara daha rahat bakar oldum. Lazere artık gitmiyorum ama tıpta herhangi bir gelişme olursa tekrar Arda beyin yanına gideceğim.

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.
