iMed Medical strives to increase Türkiye’s share of health tourism with its custom services
ISTANBUL, Turkey. February 27th, 2024 — Zubeyde Akdas, founder of iMed Medical, an Istanbul-based health tourism agency, stated that they provide services by taking into consideration the latest trends like a personal assistant for health tourists in Türkiye. She pointed out that the cost of medical services in the country is at least 30-40% lower than in the UK, Europe and the US, thus inviting health tourists to Istanbul.
She added that they strive to increase the country’s share of health tourism by acting as a bridge between patients abroad and professional health institutions and experts in Türkiye, and said: “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.”
Türkiye grows in health tourism
A report on health tourism in Türkiye prepared by Future Market Insights, a US-based research company, forecasts a 6.6% growth in the country’s revenues from 3,751.6 million dollars in 2023 to the end of 2033. 
Stating that Türkiye attracts attention with its ever-rising graph in health tourism, Akdaş said: 
“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.” 
Interpreter and personal nurse support 
Underlining that they are one of the largest agencies in many areas of the medical tourism industry, ranging from plastic surgery to hair transplantation and obesity surgery, Zubeyde Akdas, Founder of iMed Medical, continued:
“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.”
Return to the natural look in aesthetics 
“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.”  
Say goodbye to implants for natural beauty
Stating that they have taken patient satisfaction as their mission to provide VIP service and that they cooperate with specialist physicians, clinics, and A+ hospitals, Akdas concluded: 
“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.”
