Please visit Personalized Patient Consultant page for more detail.

Visa Application

3. Visa Application

Patients must apply for a visa/e-visa before coming to Turkey. Applications are usually made online or from embassies. Some citizens of the country are exempt from visas and can enter the country easily for touristic purposes. They are entitled to a total stay of 90 days from the first day of arrival. However, for some, visa procedures can be a bit challenging. In addition to this, procedures and paperwork may take time to collect. In this case, as the Wannabetaller team, we can send you a medical invitation letter from here to shorten your visa procedures a little bit more. Thanks to our membership in the Turkish Service Exporters Association, we are able to send invitation letters to foreign patients officially. For more information, please contact the patient consultant.

Please visit Turkey Visa Assistance page for more detail.

Health Tourism Guarantee Insurance

4. Health Tourism Guarantee Insurance

If you wonder what this insurance is for or how it may help you, it is the first health insurance that is prepared for patients from abroad who come to Turkey for health tourism to cover the patient’s complication expenses after the surgery if it happens. Thanks to this insurance policy, if revision surgery is needed due to the possibility of a complication for foreign patients, or Turkish patients that live in a different country, after the surgery, it is securitized.

Please visit Health Tourism Guarantee Insurance page for more detail.

5. Preparing for Your Visit to Turkey

It is very important to obtain information about what kind of document you need to enter Turkey. We are able to provide help in getting e-visas/regular visas, or residence permits in case you plan to stay for long periods and your visa doesn’t allow you to do so. It is recommended to book your airplane ticket long before your travel as well so that you do not miss your surgery date due to tickets being sold out on that date.

We have also included a caretaker service in the surgery cost you pay. A caretaker speaking your language will be around whenever you want during your hospital stay.

Please visit Pre-Operative Procedures page for more detail.

6. Pre-Operative Examination and Surgery

Our staff will wait for you at the airport. Once you arrive, you will be taken to a quality hotel where you can enjoy a comfortable and high-standard stay. On the next day, you will be taken on a guided city tour to see our beautiful Istanbul city, enjoy local meals and the best sights. Then, the driver will take you to the hospital for taking important tests to make sure you are eligible for this surgery. Test results are usually arranged later on the same day, or on the next day. Finally, you will be taken to the doctor’s clinic to have face-to-face consultation.

When every step before the surgery is completed, a consent form will be presented to be signed by you. Once you give consent for the surgical operation to be performed, you will be taken to the hospital for the surgery.

Please visit Pre-Operative Procedures page for more detail.

7. Hospital Process

The hospital where you will have limb lengthening surgery determines the quality of your surgery. That’s why we work with one of the best hospitals in Turkey for you.

Once your doctor confirms that you are eligible, you are now ready for the surgery. You will be admitted to BHT Clinic Istanbul Tema Hospital for about 5 days, which has proven itself with advanced technological facilities, hygienic surgical environments, and advanced health service delivery. During your stay in the hospital, your caretaker whom arranged by our company, will accompany you in all matters. To be noted, most private hospitals’ Quality Management System in Turkey were created in line with Joint Commission International (JCI) Accreditation Standards and Ministry of Health Quality Standards in Health.

Please visit Hospital Process and Surgery page for more detail.

8. Shortly After Surgery

Congratulations on having your limb lengthening surgery successfully! On the next day after surgery, we will provide you a walker to make your first steps (Precice 2.2 method is an exception because you cannot walk for the first 2-2.5 months in this method. You will be gifted a wheelchair to move around). A caretaker will be at hand for your additional needs. After 4-5 days, when you are about to be released from the hospital, your doctor will give necessary instructions about how to make daily distractions (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 make sure you can do these on your own.

Please visit Hospital Process and Surgery page for more detail.

Physiotherapy Service

9. Physiotherapy Service

Physiotherapy is quite significant in the course of the lengthening process. At least 4-5 physiotherapy sessions should be taken per week for the first 2 or 3 months after the surgery. The doctor should be consulted about how many physio sessions should be taken in the following months. As Wannabetaller Team, we provide this service in the best way for our patients. During your stay here, your recovery progress will proceed more efficiently and healthily with the help of our experienced physiotherapist.

Please visit Physiotherapy page for more detail.

10. Several Months After Surgery

Patients are usually expected to return their daily lives and be able to walk unaided within 4/5 months after the surgery. However, the duration may prolong depending on the recovery process. We would like to give an inspiring real-life experience from one of our patients. He had undergone two surgeries and went back to his normal life. Please visit his Youtube Channel which our patient shares his experience throughout his leg-lengthening journey.

Ezgi Tanıl

11. Psychological Counseling Service

Before getting limb lengthening surgery done, it is crystal clear that patients prepare themselves financially and psychologically. Whereas financial issues can be arranged easily, preparing ourselves mentally might not be that simple. As Wannabetaller Team, we provide you psychological counseling service before surgery by our specialist psychotherapist. The aim of it is to be certain what patients expect after surgery and if they have got real expectations. As well as pre-surgery, we make sure to provide it for post-surgery. Since it is major surgery, patients may go through a rough time psychologically. That’s why we offer this service so that the process can proceed healthily.

Please visit Additional Services page for more detail.

Dietitian Services

12. Dietitian Services

During the lengthening process, one of the most important factors is undoubtedly nutrition. Your psychological state in the process can lead to an unhealthy diet, and this may affect your health negatively. Therefore, as Wannabetaller Team, we offer our dietitian service that the nutritional routines of our patients can be monitored by our dietitian twice a month.

Hello, thank you for reaching us. Detailed information regarding the surgery methods, quotes, recommended stay time and services offered will be sent to your email address. Regards, WBT.

Hello, I’m interested in the Precise Stryde bilateral femur lengthening to 8cm. What is the cost with the insurance & what does time frames look like? I saw the 3mos stay at $10,540, but what about the removal process, what does that look like? Thanks


Wanna Be Taller - Makbule2023-09-14 10:54

Hello, thanks for your comment. Considering the 8 cm increase in height, you are advised to stay here for 3,5 months. Depending on your recovery and range of motion, it could be up to 4,5 months. The current insurance fee is 500 USD, however, it may increase in the coming weeks due to the price hikes. When it comes to nail removal, it is advised to be removed in 1,5-2 years after the surgery. Regards, WBT.

Pedro 2023-09-11 01:43:25

Hi sir, I\'m 1.72 cm and wanna be 186 in 2 surgerys with Lon method. So gained 8cm on femur and 6 on tibia.

I would like to Do the second surgery maybe a week after my recovery for the first after 3 months. finished. It\'s possible.


Wanna Be Taller - Makbule2023-09-14 10:56

Hello, our doctor prefers giving a gap of 6 to 12 months between leg lengthening surgeries for several reasons. Firstly, it allows the bone to heal and form a strong callus, providing stability during lengthening and reducing complications. Secondly, it gives time for the surrounding soft tissues to recover from surgery-related stress, preventing potential complications. Thirdly, it helps avoid problems like infection, nerve damage, and poor bone consolidation that could occur if the second surgery is rushed. Additionally, the gradual lengthening process allows the bone to adapt effectively, leading to better outcomes with reduced fracture risk. Lastly, the recovery time enables patients to undergo thorough physical therapy and rehabilitation, ensuring better preparation and increased comfort for the subsequent surgery, thus improving overall well-being and pain management. Regards, WBT.

Hassan Malik 2023-08-29 17:40:33

Sar 2023-08-19 05:53:17

Wanna Be Taller - Makbule2023-08-21 16:53

Wanna Be Taller - Makbule2023-08-11 10:39

Hello, thanks for your comment. Prior to the surgery, we advise patients to do stretching and light-pace walking to increase the flexibility in the muscles. It is crucial to prepare them for the distraction. If you are interested, you can get in touch with a patient consultation expert and require a pre-op exercise file. Regards, WBT.

Balear 2023-07-23 17:31:12

Hi, Do you also do humerus lengthening? if so can i do humerus and femurs lengthening surgeries both at the same time or there should be a time between them? also i couldn't find anything about humerus lengthening costs.


Wanna Be Taller - Makbule2023-07-24 11:21

Hello, Our doctor also performs humerus lengthening surgery, but not at the same time as leg lengthening. There should be at least a year between those two operations. The current cost for humerus lengthening varies depending on the surgery method. For LON: 14 850 USD and Precice 2: 47 850 USD. It is noted, the prices may change at different times. Regards, WBT.
