The medical tourism industry in Türkiye is witnessing robust growth, driven by the increasing demand for aesthetic surgeries like the Mommy Makeover, Brazilian butt lift, tummy tuck, liposuction, rhinoplasty, and breast aesthetics. Prominent plastic surgeon Dr. Salih Onur Basat observes the surge in these comprehensive procedures and foresees an ongoing rise in demand through 2024.
Türkiye’s health tourism sector is making significant strides. The EY (Ernst & Young) Tourism Sector Assessment 2023, published in November, reveals a growing appeal in health tourism in Türkiye, with nearly 750 thousand individuals visiting the country for health services in the first half of 2023.
Dr. Salih Onur Basat, a renowned plastic surgeon in Türkiye, investigates the factors contributing to Türkiye’s increasing prominence in aesthetic surgeries. “I anticipate that the increasing demand for Brazilian butt lift (BBL), tummy tuck, liposuction, rhinoplasty, and breast aesthetic surgeries in Turkey will persist into 2024.”
Türkiye rapidly evolving into a global benchmark for elective surgery
Dr. Basat asserts, “Türkiye has become a global destination for high-quality, affordable elective, reconstructive surgery, thanks to its state-of-the-art facilities and the expertise of our medical professionals.” He highlights Türkiye’s health infrastructure’s exceptional standards and its commitment to advancing quality with its team of proficient medical personnel.
A holistic approach to post-pregnancy body transformation
The Mommy Makeover, incorporating breast surgery, tummy tuck, and liposuction, is gaining widespread popularity among international patients. Dr. Basat emphasises its individualised approach, designed to address the unique changes in a woman’s body after childbirth. He advises patients on the importance of rest and strict adherence to postoperative guidelines for optimal recovery. In addition to the Mommy Makeover, Dr. Basat notes Türkiye’s popularity in other cosmetic surgeries like breast aesthetics, BBL, liposuction, tummy tuck, and rhinoplasty.
International patients seeking an integrated medical experience in Türkiye: choose accredited clinics
“To achieve desired results, it’s crucial to select a specialised surgeon and have realistic post-operative expectations,” Dr. Basat counsels those planning surgery in Türkiye. Türkiye’s health tourism sector, with a target of US$ 20 billion, is driven by its robust health infrastructure and the exceptional skills of its medical staff.
As Türkiye continues to advance in health tourism, offering premier cosmetic and medical procedures, it stands as an attractive destination for patients globally, seeking a blend of quality, cost-effectiveness, and medical expertise.
