Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery in Turkey | Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Cost in Turkey

People nowadays prefer to get treatment in Turkey, one of the cheapest medical destinations in the world. This preference has been made possible because of increasing surgery costs in western countries such as Europe, North America, the US, the UK, Singapore, etc.

Why do medical tourists choose Turkey for cosmetic surgery?

Cosmetic surgery is a subcategory of plastic surgery which improves a person’s physical appearance and boosts self-confidence. 

People are knocking at the doors of Turkish cosmetic surgeons and doctors for cosmetic surgery due to affordable prices and geographical proximity. 

After years of hard work and efforts, Turkish surgeons and dermatologists have been able to make a good reputation among their patients and now, mushrooming their patient service and care internationally. Every year, hundreds of patients come to Turkey for facial aesthetics. The recent studies show a rising trend among both men and women. 

According to a Global Report, Turkey is among the top three countries for aesthetic treatment. 

 

Turkey, becoming a hub for cosmetic surgery, due to the following reasons:

  1. Cost of Treatment: Surgical treatment in Turkey is 90 percent cheaper than in other countries. Patients from the US, UK or Europe find Turkey cheaper for their medical treatment as compared to other western countries. 

  2. Frequent Inspections: The Turkish hospitals and clinics are always under the radar by medical associations including the International Medical Association and the Turkish Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (TSAPS). These medical associations frequently check clinics’ cleanliness level, doctors’ certification, accreditation certification, etc. 

  3. Plastic Surgeon’s Credentials: The Turkish medical associations keep an eagle’s eye on surgeons’ credentials and certifications. Meanwhile, the patient can also lookup for the surgeon’s medical license, past complaints and disciplinary actions from the Internet. One can also verify board certification(s). Also, look for memberships in surgery ‘society’ or ‘association’ section on the surgeon’s official website if any. 

  4. Accommodation, Food and Other Basic Amenities: The cost of living is comparatively affordable for medical tourists in Turkey including accommodation, food, transportation and sight-seeing. There are many hotels and restaurants offering budget-friendly, luxurious rooms along with multi-cuisine food as per requirement. Also, if after treatment, one wants to explore the city, there are many modes of transportation available within budget. 

  5. Locally Manufacturer Medical Equipment: As Turkey favors the manufacturing of any goods and products within the country rather than importing, this concept leads to lower medical care costs and surgery prices. To support this concept, Turkey sells its products and goods at a much higher rate. This helps in higher manufacturing and less importing.

  6. Finest Quality Implants: As there are various cosmetic procedures where the surgeons need to fix implants in the body such as breast augmentation. In such cases, the surgeons ensure to use qualitative implants with a lifelong warranty.

  7. Purchasing Power Parity Differences: It is a fact that Europe and the US manufacture their own medical goods; however, the surgical prices are still high. Domestic manufacturing is one of the factors contributing to the process. Therefore, considering purchasing power parity (PPP) differences, the equation is simple. PPP says that since the manufacturing goods are the same, the purchasing power in the countries should be the same as well.

    The PPP ratio between the US and Turkey is 1.451. This means that even though both countries locally manufacture their products, the resources available in Turkey are cheaper which translates to higher manufacturing costs in other countries as compared to Turkey.

What are the benefits of cosmetic surgery in Turkey?

Be its lips, eyes or any other body part, if one feels an urgency to correct it, then cosmetic surgery is the option. For instance, your nose can rate your look from average-looking to jaw-dropping. As a matter of fact, your nose can be the most attractive or subjected to either criticism or appraises. Well, in such cases, rhinoplasty is a popular surgical treatment to correct such situations. This applies in other cases as well say facelift, butt lift, breast augmentation, etc. So, how did Turkey became the go-to option for cosmetic surgery? The explanation is as follows: 

  1. Cost-Efficient: The demand for cosmetic surgery has tremendously grown in the last decade. The factor that is holding many people from getting treated is the ‘cost’. For example, rhinoplasty in the US costs around $5,000 to $10,000 which is at least two times more than Turkey. The cost of rhinoplasty in Turkey ranges between $2,000 to $2,500. This gap difference does not make any kind of compromise with medical care quality. 

  2. An Unforgettable Experience: Apart from cost-efficient treatment, Turkey offers an unforgettable experience that lets you past through a long-awaited makeover. You get to recover from your physical insecurities and rebuilt a better you with Turkish culture by visiting different places, making stories from your trip.
    Plastic surgery is an experience that helps you get over your emotional barrier, insecurities and building a stronger version of yourself. Such kind of experience can only be attained by traveling and exploring the country post-operative treatment. This is the reason why people consider Turkey for their cosmetic surgery. 

  3. Privacy: Cosmetic surgery is a procedure when one goes through a major physical change and therefore, they prefer to have alone-time during this period. There is no shame in going through many physical changes through cosmetic surgery, but that does not mean one has to be under limelight to discuss it.
    Getting treatment abroad gives privacy to recover from the treatment. But if you’re going solo for your medical treatment, consider staying at the hospital until your recovery. Also, the hospital authorities won’t allow you to stay alone after the first few weeks of the surgery.
     

Cosmetic surgery in Turkey is a perfect option if you’re looking for affordable options as it values your privacy, and offers limitless opportunities for medical tourism.

What precautions should be taken before and after cosmetic surgery?

As cosmetic surgery contributes to your physical appearance, therefore, precautions must be necessarily taken before and after undergoing the surgery.

 

  1. No Cosmetics: People nowadays have become conscious of their facial features and physical look. Therefore, they are ready to go under the knife for facial aesthetics. However, one should completely avoid the application of cosmetics post-surgical treatment as it can lead to infections or allergies. The treated area should be cleaned and washed with medicated water as instructed.

  2. Healthy Diet: Like any other surgery, the surgeon prescribes medications which could lead to gastric problems sometimes. Therefore, one must have a proper diet including fruits, toned milk, light, and healthy food. In the case of facial surgery, one might have difficulty in gulping down food, a liquid diet must be followed. Also, there should be no consumption of alcohol and smoke until recovery. There should be no recovery even before the surgery.

  3. Consume Aloe Vera Juice: Aloe vera has been known for its medicinal properties. As surgeries including facial surgeries lead to loss of skin glow, intake of aloe vera restores the glow. However, it should be consumed with the doctor’s prescription.

  4. Stay Indoor: It is important to stay indoor as the ultraviolet radiation can harm the surgical stitches and the treated region. In fact, applying sunscreen is no solution. The application of any ointment should be done as prescribed. 

 

Conclusion:
Turkey is a good option for cosmetic surgery. Also, one can explore various cities, ancient monuments, Turkish culture, and enjoy its warm hospitality.
