About the department
The Department of Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Medicine at the Anka Plastic Surgery Clinic Istanbul offers the full service range in its field of specialization. The department performs both reconstructive interventions for correction of defects in appearance according to clinical indications (for example, after accidents, removal of tumors, in case of congenital anomalies), as well as aesthetic plastic surgeries for correction of certain area of the face or body according to the wishes of the patient. More than 250 surgical interventions are performed in the department annually. The therapeutic options are complemented by a wide range of innovative cosmetic rejuvenating and toning procedures, which do not require the use of a scalpel.
The Chief Physician of the department is Dr. med. Gamze Bektas. The specialist has over 15 years of clinical experience and is widely known in professional circles both in Turkey and abroad. The high professionalism of Dr. Bektas is marked by the certificates of the Turkish and European Boards of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery.
Surgical interventions for correction of appearance defects are carried out using the most advanced technologies. In most cases, local anesthesia or sparing general anesthesia is used, after which patients recover quickly. The minimally invasive techniques used by the department's specialists are characterized by low injury rate, which makes it possible to shorten the period of postoperative rehabilitation and reduce the risk of complications. More than 250 surgical interventions are performed in the department annually.
It is also important that the department practices an individual approach to each patient. During consultations, the plastic surgeon listens carefully to the patient's wishes, and after a comprehensive diagnostics and study of the anamnesis, he elaborates the optimal treatment regimen for achievement of the most aesthetic and natural result. If necessary, modern computer modelling systems are used here, as they allow the patient to see the expected result of the intervention even before it is performed. In some cases, when the patient sees the final result, for example, with a new shape of the nose, he realizes that he does not like it. In such case, the surgeon gives his recommendations and models a new image that satisfies the patient.
