I don't know anything about Turkey either but I did have my surgery in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and it was the best decision I have ever made. Have you googled the surgeon's name? Any reviews there...? I know that seems pretty simple but many Australians and Brits travel for this type of surgery so there may be some reviews of him/her. I picked my surgeon based on the reviews that I saw of him online because a LOT of Australians used him. My total surgery was, including everything, was $6600. This did not include airfare or hotel but we were going there anyway so it was not an issue for me. I would ask the same thing as SusieQ2019, why Turkey? Are you already traveling there? Do you have family or friends there? That would make a big difference for me.

Hi! I am an American currently living in İstanbul- I had sleeve surgery here about 8 months ago. It went very well and I could have never afforded to do it back home in the US. I can try to answer any other questions you have.

Hi,

Thank you all for your replays really appreciated

I have chosen Turkey because of course is much cheaper than uk and because its a Medical Tourism destination for lot of people , and I have been there many times but never did a medical treatment or surgery .

The hard thing is deciding wich hospital .

I have contacted many , the big hospitals like MEDIPOL , LIV, ABICADEM , their prices are just like uk , and found others cheaper like Erdem hospital wich I am considering at the moment but still not sure , for the reviews I found some in WhatClinic and their Facebook page .
