Aesthetic plastic surgery remains extremely popular. In Turkey, the clinics offer breast augmentation, abdominoplasty, nose job (rhinoplasty) and other interventions. Some plastic surgery centers successfully perform even the most complex reconstructive operations after injuries, cancer, or in congenital malformations. Among patients after 40 years, anti-aging treatments are popular.
Facelift is a surgery that is aimed at correcting the signs of aging on the neck and face (e.g. excessive skin folds, sagging, changes in the face shape). During the procedure, a surgeon pulls back a flap of skin on each face side and performs the necessary manipulations on muscles, fasciae and subcutaneous fat. Cosmetic surgery in Turkey includes filament facelift, SMAS-lifting, mini facelift, surface or circular lifting, and endoscopic or closed facelift.
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is another anti-aging intervention that is aimed at correcting the droopy eyelids. Depending on the cause of sagging, a surgeon removes the excessive skin and fat, and corrects size and position of muscles. Blepharoplasty in Turkish hospitals has the stable result that may last a lifetime.
Nose job (rhinoplasty) in Turkey may be performed for aesthetic reasons, as well as in case of hampered nasal breathing, birth defects or acquired injuries. Aesthetic nose job is carried out according to the wish of a patient, without obligatory medical indications. Specialized Turkish hospitals offer few types of nose job that will meet the needs of each patient: open and closed rhinoplasty, sparing ultrasound rhinoplasty and reshaping with fillers, septoplasty.
Otoplasty is aimed at changing the size, shape or position of the ears. In Turkey, medical specialists perform otoplasty in both adults and children. In patients with small ear defects non-surgical techniques may be applied.
Breast augmentation can be performed with the help of breast implants or transferring a woman's own fat. Breast augmentation is indicated after breast cancer treatment with mastectomy, breast injuries or in congenital deformities. Breast implants can be made of silicone gel or be saline-filled. Both saline and silicone breast implants have pros and cons, so a surgeon discusses all of them with the woman before the procedure.
This is a type of cosmetic surgery in Turkey that is aimed at removing the excessive subcutaneous fatty tissue, reducing the volume and improving shape of the target body regions (e.g. arm liposuction, liposuction of the hips, neck liposuction, etc.). In many patients, combined liposuctions or plastic interventions are performed. For instance, abdomen liposuction may be combined with abdominoplasty, neck liposuction may be combined with facelift, arm liposuction may be combined with interventions on the breasts.
