If you undergo two surgeries, then a combined 4-6 inches (10-15 cm) height gain is possible. We have many services included in the surgery price, such as caretaker, hospitalization etc. Also, if you plan to stay in Turkey for the post-surgery recovery period, we have service packages that include essential things you need.
