Patient Consultation Expert
1. Individualized Patient Consultation
Contact us via Mail, WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, Telegram, or Viber to receive a FREE consultation as well as detailed information on limb lengthening methods, pre and post-surgery procedures, and services. We offer free consultations because we believe you have the right to learn everything there is to know about limb lengthening before making a decision and proceeding with it.
2. Making a Decision and Making a Reservation
After gathering all the necessary information, you can choose your surgery method, the part of your limb you want to operate on (femur or tibia for legs, forearm/humerus for arms), set a date for your surgery, and decide whether you want to stay in Turkey for the duration of treatment or return home after a brief hospital stay. By correctly completing the form provided by our patient consultant, you will inform us of your decisions and preferences. As a result, we are able to provide you with the highest quality services in the shortest amount of time. If you are having difficulty making a decision, you can always contact your patient consultant for more information and guidance.
3. Visa Application
Before traveling to Turkey, patients must apply for a visa/e-visa. Typically, applications are submitted online or through embassies. Some citizens of the country are exempt from visa requirements and can visit the country without a visa. They are allowed to stay for a total of 90 days beginning on the day they arrive. However, visa procedures can be difficult for some people. Furthermore, procedures and paperwork may take time to collect. In this case, the Wannabetaller team can send you a medical invitation letter from here to expedite your visa procedures. We are able to send official invitation letters to foreign patients due to our membership in the Turkish Service Exporters Association. Please contact the patient consultant for more information.
4. Planning Your Trip to Turkey
It is critical to learn what type of documentation is required to enter Turkey. We can assist you in obtaining e-visas/regular visas or residence permits if you intend to stay for an extended period of time and your visa does not allow you to do so. It is also recommended that you book your plane ticket well in advance so that you do not miss your surgery date due to tickets being sold out on that date.
5. Pre-Operative Procedures and Surgery
Our team will meet you at the airport. When you arrive, you will be taken to Days Hotel by Wyndham Esenyurt for some well-deserved rest. The following day, you will be taken on a guided city tour of our beautiful Istanbul, where you will enjoy local cuisine and see the best sights. The driver will then take you to the hospital for important tests to ensure your eligibility for this surgery. Test results are usually scheduled later that day or the next day. Finally, you will be taken to a doctor's clinic for an in-person consultation.
What better way to journey through history than through Turkey? Turkey sits at the crossroads of centuries and civilizations that have shaped its history, from the Hittites to the Ottoman Empire, from the Greeks to the Romans. This country is made up of distinctions and paradoxes that make it distinctive and fascinating. It is located between Europe and Asia, antiquity and modernity, religion, and secularism.
You will be quite fortunate to be receiving treatment in Istanbul! We will give our patients a free Istanbul city tour just for choosing us. You will do the following with the assistance of a friendly guide who speaks your language:
Visiting the Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sophia, Galata Tower, and other Istanbul sights.
Take a relaxing boat ride on the Bosphorus.
Tasting delectable Turkish regional dishes, snacks, and desserts.

We will provide you with a walker the next day after surgery to help you take your first steps (the Precice 2.2 method is an exception because you cannot walk for the first 2-2.5 months in this method).

When you are about to be discharged from the hospital after 4-5 days, your doctor will provide you with instructions on how to make daily lengthening, how to clean pin sites and change bandages, and what to do to improve your walking and reduce pain. We will double-check to ensure that you can complete these tasks on your own.

8. Service of Psychological Counseling
It is imperative that patients prepare themselves financially and psychologically before undergoing limb lengthening surgery. While financial issues can be easily resolved, mentally preparing ourselves may be more difficult. Our specialist psychotherapist will provide you with psychological counseling prior to surgery as part of the Wannabetaller Team. The goal is to determine what patients expect after surgery and whether they have realistic expectations. We ensure that it is available both before and after surgery. Patients may experience psychological distress as a result of the major surgery. That is why we provide this service to ensure that the process runs smoothly.
9. Dietitian Services
Nutrition is undoubtedly one of the most important factors during the lengthening process. In the process, your psychological state may lead to an unhealthy diet, which may have a negative impact on your health. As a result, as Wanna be taller Team, we provide our dietitian service so that our patients' nutritional routines can be monitored by our dietitian twice a month.
10. Several Months Following Surgery
Patients are usually expected to return to their normal lives and be able to walk without assistance within 4/5 months of surgery. However, depending on the recovery process, the duration may be extended. We'd like to share an inspiring real-life story from one of our patients. He had two surgeries and returned to his normal life. Please visit his YouTube channel, where our patient shares his experience with leg lengthening.
11. Service of Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy is very important during the lengthening process. For the first two or three months after surgery, at least three physiotherapy sessions should be scheduled per week. The doctor should be consulted to determine how many physio sessions should be scheduled in the coming months. Wannabetaller Team provides this service in the best possible way for our patients. Your recovery will continue during your stay here in Istanbul.
Every single patient is assisted by a member of the WBT team throughout every stage of the lengthening procedure, beginning with the initial contact. The WBT team members are accessible for the duration of your stay in Turkey. Every patient receives first-rate care from our dedicated and skilled staff.
