Plastic surgery includes reconstructive surgery – which deals with the functional area of tissue reconstruction and the correction of deformities – and aesthetic surgery – which deals with the more specifically aesthetic area of tissue reconstruction and the correction of deformities. deformities and usually deals with minor cases.

The aim of plastic surgery is therefore to repair congenital defects (present from birth) or acquired defects (caused by previous surgeries, illnesses, traumas or injuries) in order to restore the function of the tissues as close to normal as possible.

 Sometimes finally changing a nose that has always been considered ugly or a breast that has been difficult to live with and with great psychological conflicts completely improves how people interface with others and with their own lives.

STEP 1: The Consultation Process

Getting a free consultation can be done via the website or by contact us directly. In this first consultation, the general procedure for the operation is discussed. This clarifies points such as your medical history, whether you are eligible for this surgery or not, whether it is the most appropriate option for you if there are several ways to perform the surgery, answering all your questions and concerns.

It is important that concerns and desires of what the end result should look like are considered and included in the decision-making process. An integral part of the consultation is also an explanation of the possible side effects and the rules of conduct to be observed.

STEP 2: Day Of Plastic Surgery

Since most plastic surgeries are performed under general anesthesia, an anesthesia consultation with an anesthesiologist should be performed before the operation. The procedure can then be carried out. Each operation takes a special time to perform, depending on its nature and complexity.

After the operation, in most plastic surgeries in Turkey, the patient usually spends one night in the hospital where she was treated.

Accommodation and meals are already included in the final price with no hidden fees. If the next day it is possible to confirm that the operation went according to plan, the patient can be accompanied by a pre-selected companion.

STEP 3: Recovery and Postoperative Care

After discharge from the clinic, it is extremely important to follow the care instructions provided by your surgeon. It’s also important to follow-up your appointments, which take place after one, three and six-eight weeks ( depending on the surgery performed).

The final check-up appointment is usually made four to six months after the operation.

Risks & Complications in Plastic Surgery

Like all operations, plastic surgery also involves risks that are generally related to intolerance reactions to anesthesia or possible post-operative complications, such as hematomas, infections, or healing problems.

 There is always a risk of complications even if the surgeon has operated perfectly, as there are factors that can increase the risk of complications, such as smoking as it interferes with the healing process, or taking various types of medications.

It is essential to adhere strictly to the surgeon’s instructions before and after plastic surgery to minimize potential risks.

Sometimes, after plastic surgery, a small surgical touch-up may be necessary to perfect the result, as the outcome is not always entirely predictable, and no aesthetic plastic surgeon will ever be able to guarantee you a risk-free operation and a perfect result.
