About the Department of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery at Liv Hospital Istanbul

The Department of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery at the Liv Hospital Istanbul offers the full range of services in its field of ​​expertise. The department's specialists perform plastic surgery to correct both face and body. To achieve an optimal result, an individual treatment program is developed prior to the intervention. Each patient undergoes a preliminary diagnostic examination to assess the general condition and exclude complications. Thanks to state-of-the-art equipment and the experience of specialists, a preliminary computer simulation of the final result is possible. This approach allows the patient along with the doctor to choose the optimal solution to the problem and adjust the treatment regimen. The main task of the medical staff is to provide each patient with maximum comfort during the treatment process and ensure the desired result. The department is headed by Assoc. Prof. Dr. med. Zeynep Sevim.

The department specializes in plastic and aesthetic interventions, namely, nose and ear reshaping, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, correction of the consequences of burns and accidents. All operations are performed in accordance with nationally and internationally approved clinical protocols. If possible, the doctors use sparing surgical techniques to promote a speedy recovery of the patient and minimize the risk of postoperative complications.

In addition to the surgical options, the department's specialists can also offer modern cosmetic procedures for skin rejuvenation, which in some cases are not inferior in terms of the effectiveness of classical aesthetic surgery. For example, the department uses the innovative Ultherapy technique for face and neck lift. The procedure was developed by American scientists and is an ultrasound lifting, which increases the tone not only of the superficial layers of the skin, but also of the deep muscle layer. Ultrasound waves do not damage the skin and subcutaneous fat, they selectively heat tissues at different depths and trigger the synthesis of new collagen and elastin fibers. The duration of the procedure varies depending on its volume and is on average from 40 minutes to one hour. This method allows the doctor to carry out lifting without surgery, which eliminates tissue trauma.
