“I was thinking of tummy tuck abroad. I chose Turkey because I read somewhere that Turkey is the 2nd globally at having JCI accredited hospitals. I chose MCAN Health because their cosmetic surgeons had very qualified backgrounds. My hospital was hygienic, equipped with state-of-the-art technology. MCAN Health treats each patient with care. But at the same time, you don’t feel like an ordinary patient. They offer a package to you by carefully considering your needs and expectations.”
“The reason that I chose MCAN Health was their confidence about what they offer. I remember the first that I contacted MCAN Health; they assured me that they have the top surgeons in Turkey. They also told me that if I have a tiny dissatisfaction from my tummy tuck job, they will offer another free of charge tummy tuck treatment. After I had a look at the CVs of MCAN Health surgeons, I booked my flights to Turkey. I had 100% satisfaction from my tummy tuck job thanks to my highly talented surgeon. I strongly recommend MCAN Health’s tummy tuck job to everyone.”
“I was so unhappy with my tummy after 3 births that I decided to have a tummy tuck in Turkey. I did not say it to my husband because I wanted to wow him. He knew that I was on holidays. It was true actually. I was on holidays in Turkey and I had my tummy done at the same time. My MCAN Health surgeon did an excellent job. I feel much more confident now and I can even see how amazed my husband as well with my new look.”
“To be perfectly honest, I had big question marks in my mind about having a surgery in Turkey. I have not been to Turkey before and reliability and quality was my biggest concern. Especially the things that were promised with such low costs… But I was fascinated with the level of quality and service offered by MCAN Health in Turkey. Everything was so organized and professional that I did not even lift a finger. It was all flowing and smooth. I have no complains at all. Thanks a lot!”
“Excellent quality and service with affordable prices; MCAN Health is the best in tummy tuck!”

Prolonged redness to the scalp is more common for those with light skin types.

You can have haircuts 1 month post the FUE hair transplant operation only with scissors and after 6 months with shaving machine.
Physical Activities, Sun & Holiday
In the first month after your hair transplant surgery, you should abstain from all physical activities such as football, basketball or any kind of sports that have body contact as well as weight lifting, cycling and running.
You shouldn’t expose yourself to direct sunlight as it can damage your scalp and its skin. To avoid the sunlight, it is always suggested to use an umbrella or wear a special loose hat if necessary.
If you plan to go on holiday after your surgery, you should not swim in the swimming pools or in the sea until you have completed your first month after the FUE hair transplant surgery.
Smoking and Alcohol
Alcohol and smoking may thin the blood causing more bleeding which increases the time needed for the wounds to heal. It is better if you wait 2 weeks post the FUE hair transplant before consuming Alcohol and Smoking.
Shock Hair Loss
Shock Hair Loss starts within the first week after the transplant and lasts up to 4 months. During this period, transplanted follicles loose hair. This is normal. The lost hair will regrow again with time. Around 60% will be re-grown on the 6th month and the end results should be evaluated only 10-12 months post-op.
