Medical procedures for which foreigners travel to Iran


In neighboring countries, Iranian doctors are known as skilled and experienced doctors. Doctors who are able to treat any difficult disease; This reputation attracts many patients from other countries to Iran for treatment. Not only private hospitals but also government hospitals have become the destination for some of these patients.
Most of the foreign patients who came to Iran for treatment are from Iraq, the Kurdistan region, Azerbaijan and Oman. Before they come, they email the medical documents to the hospital, and after receiving a positive response, they plan to travel to Iran for several days. In order for the examination process not to take long, we accept these patients without an appointment.
On the other hand, the medical staff keeps in contact with foreign patients who undergo treatment and return to their country, and follows up on their condition. On the other hand, if patients need information or assistance, the medical staff responds to them via e-mail and WhatsApp.
We have 4,000 non-Iranian outpatients and inpatients every year, and in recent years, most of them are from Iraq and Iraqi Kurdistan. Of course, we also have tourists from Azerbaijan, Tajikistan, Turkey, Europe and even America.

Foreign patients who come to Iran for treatment are of two groups: 1. The first group is looking for Cosmetic Procedures 2. The second group is looking for Medical Procedures, in this article we talk about both groups in detail.

The first group travels to Iran to undergo the following plastic surgeries:

The operation can include nose reduction, augmentation, or reshaping of the cartilaginous tip or arch. Surgeons use precise techniques to achieve results that are natural and consistent.
    In the field of rhinoplasty, we must say that the types of noses are performed in the best way in Iran. Meaty nose surgery, bony nose, Arabic nose, fantasy (dummy) nose, snub nose, damaged or broken nose, nose that needs restoration and correction (reconstructive or secondary nose), all in Iran and the cities of Shiraz, Tehran and Mashhad, are performed at the best and cheapest prices.

    Facial plastic surgery aims to rejuvenate and tighten the face and neck for a more youthful appearance. Excess skin is removed and the connective tissues under the skin are tightened to reduce wrinkles and sagging. The surgery may be combined with other procedures such as a forehead lift and eyelid surgery to achieve comprehensive results.
    Facelift is done in several ways in Iran. Those who do not have a lot of sagging at a young age can get a laser facelift or thread facelift. As for those over 40 years old, they are performed through microsurgery, and the result of facelift surgery remains for 10 years if it is performed by a skilled and skilled doctor in Iran.
