(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

Belly button surgery, also known as umbilicoplasty, is a surgical procedure that changes the appearance of the bellybutton. It was initially used to treat umbilical hernias in infants; however, it's become a popular cosmetic surgery to improve the appearance of the belly button in recent years. The main purpose of belly button surgery is to give the belly button a more vertical shape instead of a horizontal one. Women, after pregnancy or people who have to scar from an old bellybutton piercing, have mostly used this procedure.

Preparation

Patients need to quit smoking at least a month before the belly button surgery procedure to reduce the risk of complications. Stop taking certain medications or supplements in the weeks or days before the surgeons also advise the surgery. If the procedure will be performed under general anesthesia, patients also need to avoid eating anything in the hours before the belly button surgery.

How It Is Performed

Depending on the scope of the procedure and the patient condition, the surgeon may apply either local or general anesthesia. Once the anesthesia kicks in, the surgeon removes any extra skin around the belly button. Depending on the patient's expectations, the surgeon may trim its angles to appear either higher or lower. Once the desired result is achieved, the stitches are used to hold everything together during the recovery period. The procedure takes less than an hour.

Recovery

The recovery period from a belly button surgery procedure may last from 24 hours up to two weeks, depending on the complexity of the surgery. Patients can typically resume daily routine, work, showering, and light activities within 1-3 days after the procedure. Special garments may be recommended to help the healing of treated area as well as a bulky cotton dressing for five days after the belly button surgery.

Before And After

Belly button surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is performed on the navel to improve the appearance of the belly button. Especially women desire a more pleasing belly button after their pregnancy and find their solution in the belly button surgery. This procedure is also recommended to the individual who does not have their belly button piercing anymore and wants their navel to look naturally beautiful again. Belly button surgery makes these two groups of candidates very satisfied after having it. However, some other conditions could be the reasons for undergoing a belly button surgery. Doctors will consult and guide you if you consider this effective cosmetic surgery procedure.
