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.
