Am I a good candidate?
Aesthetic surgeries are very personal operations and it should not be done to please someone else or get a popular look. You should get it only for yourself.
Aesthetic Surgery Prices
The prices of aesthetic procedures are rather variable. Costs will vary according to many factors. That’s why we suggest out patients to make financial plans firstly. For example, prices may include the following costs:
• Surgeon fee
• Hospital or clinic costs
• Anesthesia fees
• Medications to be used
• Medical tests
The issue more important than these finances is the experience of the surgeon and how equipped is the clinic. Therefore, while choosing a clinic or a surgeon for aesthetic surgeries, remember that the doctor’s experiences are more important than the final costs. Experience and expertise are invaluable elements in aesthetic surgery. Don’t forget this: when you get negative results after the operations you have chosen due to the lower price, you may hurt your body and after revision treatments you pay the same prices in total and the price of the operation arises.
Most health insurances and SGK (Social Security Institution) do not cover aesthetic surgery.
How the Examination Of the Aesthetic Surgeries Is Done?
After you decide it, you can take your photographs from different angles as instructed and send us before coming to Doctor B’s clinics. Even though the final costs and procedures are going to be clear when you come to our clinics, getting prior knowledge by sending photographs is beneficial for you to have an idea. When you come to the clinic, you are firstly met by Doctor B’s private patient consultants. Our professional and expert patient consultants provide you with prior knowledge and they prepare your file. Afterwards, we come to the Doctor B’s examination. After getting information about your health and health history, he answers your questions. You should tell Doctor B about the medications you use, chronic diseases and you should answer all other questions. After your pre-operation photos are taken for the examination, he will tell you all the necessary details.
Pre-operation interview and examination and patients’ trust to their doctor are as important as the operations. Therefore, it is beneficial asking questions mutually between doctor and patient.
Doctor B’s questions you will be asked during the interview:
• Why do you want this operation and what are the results you expect?
• Do you have any allergies to any medications?
• What are the vitamins, drugs, herbal supplements you are currently consuming?
• Do you smoke or drink alcohol?
• Have you undergone surgery before?
Also Doctor B answers your questions about the operations and mentions about the methods he is going to use. Don’t forget to get information from Doctor B about risks or complications that may occur.

Aesthetic surgery is a science. Even though people mostly get good and positive results, there is no guarantee. In some cases, it may not be possible to get the best results with only one surgical procedure. Another operation may be needed.
It’s the key of surgical success to follow Doctor B’s instructions. After the operation, it is your responsibility to protect the area during the healing process. Doctor B will give you special instructions to protect yourself and take care of the operation area.

• Am I going to get dressing? If yes, when should I come to the hospital?
• Which cream and active cosmetic products should I use?
• When can I start my normal activities and work out?
• Will there be any swelling, edema, bruising?
Return to Normal Life after the Aesthetic Surgery
All techniques used by Doctor B are planned to get over the healing process comfortably. After the aesthetic operation, it is very normal to observe edema for approximately 5 days. Between 5 and 21 days, remission period starts. Edema is no longer observed after the 5th day. From 21st day to 6th month is the recovery time. From the 3rd week you can fully continue to your social and business life. After the 6th month, you observe 80% of the result and at the end of the 2nd year you observe the final result. That’s why, for all operations you should be patient and revise your nutrition and exercise habits by following Doctor B’s suggestions.
