I really liked how I was met and accompanied during my entire stay in Istanbul. In the morning they took me away from the hotel, during the operation the manager assigned to me was always nearby for transfer, if necessary. I was escorted everywhere, even a detailed plan was made on how to spend free time in the city center. The only thing that disappointed me was the support of the bookimed site. It was stated that you can write on vatsap at any time, but when I had a need to ask about a transfer, no one answered, although it was clear that they were reading messages. Only after 4 hours I was asked again in the chat is everything all right. I did not even give an answer. So support bukimeda absolute zero, you can not count on it. Очень понравилось как меня встретили и сопровождали во время всего моего пребывания в Стамбуле. Утром меня забирали с гостиницы, во время операции менеджер, закрепленный за мной всегда был неподалеку для перевода, если случалась необходимость. Меня всюду провожали, даже подробно составили план как провести свободное время в центре города. Единственно, что меня разочаровало - так это поддержка сайта букимед. Было заявлено, что писать по ватсапу можно в любое время, но когда у меня случилась необходимость - спросить о трансфере - никто не отвечал, хотя было видно, что сообщения читают. Только по прошествии 4 часов меня переспросили в чате все ли в порядке. Я даже не стал давать ответа. Так что поддержка букимеда абсолютный ноль, можете на нее не расчитывать.

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.

I really liked the clinic. Everything is top notch, comfortable rooms, helpful staff. The only thing is that after the eyelid surgery, edema appeared that did not go away for a long time. But a month later, everything fell into place, so I am very pleased with the clinic. Клиника очень понравилась. Все на высшем уровне, удобные палаты, отзывчивый персонал. Единственное, что после операции по подтяжке век появился отек, который долго не сходил. Но спустя месяц все встало на свои места, так что клиникой я очень довольна.

Did rhinoplasty of the tip of the nose. In general, I really liked everything: a good clinic, the staff is friendly and sociable. The anesthesiologist was very inclined to himself. He explained everything and put it on the shelves. The result of the operation itself makes me happy, although there is still swelling. The only negative: if you are flying from another country, make sure and discuss the lines of stay near the clinic before removing the stitches so that there would be no complications when you return home Делала ринопластику кончика носа. В общем все очень понравилось: хорошая клиника, персонал приветливый и общительный. Очень расположил к себе анастезиолог. Объяснил все и разложил по полочках. Результат самой операции меня радует, хотя ещё присутствует отек. Единственный минус: если летите с другой страны, убедитесь и обговорите строки пребывания вблизи клиники до снятия швов, что бы не было осложнений, когда вернётесь домой

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.

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.

The patient underwent tummy tuck in Estetik International Clinic

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.

I've only had good experiences here. It's pricey but you can make actual appointments, for which you are generally seen on time, and the checkout process is efficient. The staff are well-trained and the bureaucratic process is well-refined. Of course, the doctors are top notch. Value added: it's a very nice hospital in aesthetic terms.

Bumrungrad International Hospital

I did my full medical checkup here on Friday(with prior appointment). It was really amazing 5 stars experience and here are the positive things about this hospital -Free transportation for the patients from Bangkok international airport to the Hospital or hotels nearby. -Professional and enough staff available to help you. -Amazing ambience, clean, decorated like a 5 stars hotel!! -It took around 4 hours to complete the whole checkup including meeting the Doctor for the results (written report will get after 2 days) -If you speak Arabic, this is best place for you as they have translators and some staff knows some Arabic words. -open mini-buffet included if you take the medical checkup. Here are the only 2 negatives -This hospital prices are high compared to other hospitals in bangkok. But it worth it as you will feel at home!! Clean, helpful and always smiling and welcoming staff!! Well organized place. -It takes more waiting time at the x-ray and ultrasound, however, it is mentioned that the whole checkup takes around 4 to 6 hours. It took 4 hours. Five stars to the best hospital I have ever been!!!

FAQ about Tummy Tuck

Fahad Mawlood

Medical editor

15.12.2014 · Updated 04.03.2020

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.
