(Chin and neck liposuction) great experience with Abud

I found flymedi while I was looking for a doctor in Istanbul to do a chin and neck liposuction. Abud from Flymedi contacted me and he was great from the beginning until even after I went back home, he took care of everything and was always available, definitely the right person for this experience! My doctor (Dr Ozge Ergun) was also great, I'm very satisfied and I can only recommend Flymedi, the best place to find your treatment!

5* service

From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

Great Service

After a long research for hair transplant, I came across Flymedi. I had several reasons to get this service from them such as getting rid of the bureaucratic process, handling accommodation issues, personal assistant, etc. I felt comfortable once it is done by Flymedi as full of customer-oriented style, I was just worried about the surgery which went well too! Thank you Flymedi team. Make sure that I will be letting people know your passion for helping patients who admit to have surgery done in Poland.

Overview

CT scan is a very common medical procedure that is used to identify injuries and diseases.CT stands for Computed Tomography and is comprised of numerous X-ray photographs compiled together in order to give a detailed picture of one’s body or body part. CT scan is one of the main techniques to identify tumors and injuries, but it is not a recommended procedure for healthy patients just to look for undiagnosed medical conditions. Usually, the CT scan with contrast is performed to recognize better the anomalies. The most common types of CT scan are: 
• Abdominal CT scan 
• Heart CT scan • CT scan of the brain

Preparation

Before the procedure, you should inform your doctor about your medical conditions as well as the allergies you are suffering from(usually the CT scan with contrast is performed – a dye may cause allergy). Before the CT scan, you need to fast for several hours so that a dye can be used to improve the quality of the CT. Lastly, before entering the CT scanner, you need to take away all the metal objects in your body, such as jewelry. During the procedure, wearing a gown might be required.

How It Is Performed

CT scan procedure is a very short medical procedure. Patients would be lying on the CT scanner’s examination table as the dye is given to them either in the form of a pill or injection (unless the patient is allergic to the dye). Sedatives would be given to the patients who experience anxiety or those who have trouble staying still, including younger children. After that, the patient needs to stay still as the CT scan is being performed. When the procedure is completed, the patient can leave the hospital.

Recovery

CT scan procedure does not require a recovery period. After the procedure, you can leave the hospital and continue your daily routine.

Risks

Even though the CT scan machine involves a small dose of radiation, there is no enough proof for stating that it causes any complications regarding the radiation. However, it is not suggested for pregnant women to have a CT scan.Some people may have an allergy to the dye used in a CAT scan, but this is usually ruled out before the procedure.

Side Effects

CT scan procedure has no known side effects. It is thought to be a very safe medical procedure.

Success Rates

CT scan is a very common medical procedure because of its benefits like identifying tumors in addition to injuries caused by accidents

Before And After

Because of the CT scan, doctors can identify the medical problems patients are suffering from, and they can come up with a treatment plan accordingly.
