Last Updated on: 27th February 2024, 03:53 pm

Zubeyde Akdas, the architect behind iMed Medical in Istanbul, shared their innovative approach towards health tourism, offering services that resemble a personal assistant for those visiting Türkiye for medical reasons. She highlighted the cost-effectiveness of medical procedures in Türkiye, which are substantially lower by at least 30-40% compared to those in the UK, Europe, and the US, making Istanbul an attractive hub for health tourists.

Akdas discussed their pivotal role in enhancing Türkiye’s footprint in the health tourism arena by establishing connections between international patients and the country’s leading health institutions and specialists, affirming: “We have the International Health Tourism Authorization Certificate issued by the Turkish Ministry of Health. We provide services in plastic surgery, obesity and hair transplantation. Those who prefer Istanbul can plan their course of treatment by phone, online, or in consultation with our personal counselors in the Netherlands and Belgium.”

Growth in Türkiye’s Health Tourism

A report by Future Market Insights, a US-based analytics firm, projects a 6.6% growth in Türkiye’s health tourism revenue, from 3,751.6 million dollars in 2023 to the end of 2033.

Akdaş addressed Türkiye’s ascending trajectory in health tourism, stating:

“With its geographical location, cultural beauties, professional health personnel, and clinics, Türkiye, and mainly Istanbul, is the address of choice for people who desire to have better treatment services at more affordable prices. Turkish clinics that follow world trends enhance patient satisfaction with innovative treatments.” 

Extensive Support: Interpreters and Personal Nurses

Zubeyde Akdas, founder of iMed Medical, highlighted their broad spectrum of services in the medical tourism sector, ranging from cosmetic procedures to hair restoration and weight-loss surgeries, elaborating:

“Procedures do not only refer to surgical procedures for us. It is also a step towards redefining the beauty standards of individuals on their own terms. With the latest surgical techniques and a patient-centered approach, we offer a journey that is both transformative and comfortable. We have a wide choice of hospitals, surgeons, and medical staff. That’s why we don’t have a waiting list. After the necessary and desired treatments are determined, we quickly schedule and invite our foreign patients to Istanbul. Our patients are accommodated in 5-star luxury hotels. During your stay, we provide personalized services with the support of our interpreter, private nurse and team. Our patients can easily integrate their visits with vacations or business trips.”

Natural Aesthetics on the Rise

“We follow all developments and innovations in the rapidly developing health tourism sector with about 45 colleagues. We prioritize the wishes of our patients. The preferences of celebrities have a great influence on foreign patients coming to Türkiye,” says Zubeyde Akdas, 

“There is a comeback to the natural in aesthetics. The exaggerated look gave way to a natural appearance. Particularly celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Cardi B, who decided to undergo hip reduction made statements supporting the natural appearance by expressing their experiences. These statements have not only raised awareness but also helped to normalize those reversing cosmetic regulations is a common choice. Women embraced natural body aesthetics. Especially buttock implant removal and BBL reduction operations have increased in popularity. The smaller and shaped butt appearance has become the new favorite of patients.”  

Commitment to Natural Beauty and Patient Well-being

In her concluding remarks, Akdas reiterated their focus on patient satisfaction and premium service in collaboration with top-tier doctors, clinics, and hospitals:

“We listen to our patients and take their wishes into consideration to provide quality healthcare. Many women now seek comfort, natural beauty, and inner peace. In this regard, we have recently encountered mostly patients wishing to farewell their implants. 

“Fashion and beauty standards change over time. Women who want to keep up with fashion may want smaller buttocks. Some women care too much about societal expectations. Others undergo surgery due to physical ailments. Overall, due to many external factors, women now prefer a firmer and smaller butt.”
