Helen was looking for a cosmetic surgery clinic to have her tummy tuck surgery. She found out FlyHealth from the internet. She also talked to someone who had booked her surgery through FlyHealth. Helen was able to see the final results which made her feel better and she chose FlyHealth for her tummy tuck.

Before coming to Turkey to have her surgery, Helen was worried about the language barrier. But the stay helped her throughout her surgery and she experienced no language problems with the nurses or doctors. The staff and the doctor guided Helen throughout her entire process by continuously engaging and communicating with her.

She enjoyed her hotel and clinic and she expressed that the clinic was very clean and everybody helped her when it comes to speaking to other people. Helen stayed 8 days in Istanbul but she wasn’t able to take a tour due to the nature of her surgery. Her overall experience with FlyHealth was amazing.
