PROCESS FLOW: How is everything organized?

Before your arrival:

Please check our Patient Guide section from the website as soon as you book your surgery to start with the necessary preparations. Your patient coordinator will be in touch one week before your arrival to go over the details of the organization. Our driver will be in touch one day before your arrival to give you some instructions about your airport pick up.

Day 1: Arrival

You will be picked up from our driver in a private Mercedes Van and will be transferred to your hotel. We recommend to exchange some money into Turkish Lira and if necessary to do a PCR test before leaving the airport. You will need a negative PCR test which, on the day of the surgery is not older than 48 hours. This can be done at the airport upon landing or we can organize a nurse to come to your hotel. Please let us know in advance if you would need our help with this.

Day 2: Consultation Day

Our driver will pick you up from your hotel and bring you to our clinic. The exact appointment time will be given right on time. You will meet the doctor and our whole team. The doctor will examine you in detail and will consult you. For Rhinoplasty patients this includes also simulations of the nose. After your detailed consultation we will give you the consent forms of the surgery to be signed and we will also collect the surgery fee. You will get some last information about the surgery day, like the exact surgery time etc. so you can start fasting 8 hours before that. The driver will drop you back to your hotel.

Day 3: Surgery Day

You will pack your luggage and check out from the hotel (if you like, you can leave your luggage back at the luggage room and bring only a small bag to the hospital). The driver will pick you up and bring you to the hospital. Your patient coordinator will be waiting at the hospital when you arrive. We will start with your pre-operational check-ups and have another consultation with the doctor before you go down to the surgery room. You will spend the night at the hospital, if you have company with you, he/she will also stay in your room (there is a sleeping couch).

Day 4: Discharge Day

Your patient coordinator and the nurse will be visiting you in the morning to check you up and give you your medication and information about what to do after the surgery. You will get discharged and be driven back to your hotel.

Day 5-6: Aftercare

According your departure date, your last aftercare appointment will be scheduled to be done at our clinic. You will be picked-up and dropped back to your hotel. The doctor will check you up once more and give you all necessary information about your recovery.

Day 7: Departure

If you need a new PCR test for your departure flight this can be organized to be done one day before your departure at your hotel. You will be picked-up and dropped to the airport.

What To Bring With You?

Pack your luggage lightly, take only what is absolutely necessary, don’t forget that you will not be able to lift and carry heavy things after the surgery!

Bring soft, comfy clothes with you (you will have swellings after the surgery).

Front fastening tops and easy to slip in shoes without laces are advisable for almost every surgery.

For Rhinoplasty surgeries you can bring a hat to protect yourself from the sun (you will not be able to wear sunglasses).

For Blepharoplasty and Facelift surgeries you can bring large sunglasses to cover your eyes after the surgery.

For your hospital stay you will need a pair of slippers, button-up pyjamas or night gowns (for Liposuction surgeries you might need 2-3 night gowns. Due to leakage of the incision points they get dirty) and warm socks. After the surgery you will be walking on the hospital corridors, you can bring something like a bath robe to wear over your night gown.

Bring an universal adapter/charger for your phone, tablets or laptop.

Bring anti-bacterial wipes to clean up after surgery (you will not be able to take showers for 4 days)

Having books & magazines with you is advisable.
