Turkey has seen significant growth in the industry of medical tourism in recent years. Almost one million people visited the country as medical tourists in the first three quarters of 2022.

The country’s target for 2023 is to reach 1.5 million health tourists with an income of 10 billion dollars.
This photo documentary explores the world of medical tourism in Istanbul, Turkey, as it gives a glimpse of what goes on inside some of the capital’s aesthetic clinics.
