Angela went above and beyond my expectations. She is very friendly and you can always feel at ease contacting her. She made sure I was comfortable with our choice of surgeon Dr. Can Karaca and set up a video call for me. Always ready to help and answer any questions (she would always be available despite the 7 hour time difference)! I wasn’t really sure about traveling to Istanbul, Turkey for my procedure until I met Angela and she explained everything from start to finish and stood behind her words to always be of assistance. Mind you I have been researching for months now for a good doctor and went back and forth between waiting 2 years to get my surgery done in Canada or even traveling to Mexico for it! I was thinking Turkey would be a difficult route due to time difference and the distance but I’m very happy I chose to go to Turkey with Flymedi and I’m glad my agent was Angela Sabou! Do not hesitate to work with Flymedi and especially request Angela if you can!!! - a very satisfied client

Adonis Fertility International Caring Professionals

After trying IVF unsuccessfully in the US for many years Maria from Adonis Fertility International gave me hope. I was very impressed by her work ethic and I trusted she would work hard at helping us become parents. Her communication was top-notch. I choose Adonis because of Maria and then worked with Amy, Nancy, and Ivanna and ALL were Amazing. Everything is broken down for you in steps and very organized. There was always someone there to answer a question you may. Its been a very smooth process, with all the legal documents and made transporting the biomaterial stress-free. We are still in our beginning stages and I will give another review at the end but everything so far has been excellent and I would recommend Adonis to any US couple looking to try IVF and hopefully become parents.

Excellent service

Excellent service. I was really hesitant at first, because I’ve never done anything like this before, but Kirstie did a great job of answering all my questions & concerns, in a timely manner. I would highly recommend using this service.

At the beginning, I was very hesitant about having my surgeries, especially the idea of having them in Turkey, which is a country located across the ocean of where I come from, the United States of America. When I initially started my research, I came across Flymedi, and I strongly believe that connecting with them was the best decision I have made in regards of having my desired surgeries. After entering my contact information, I was contacted from Flymedi by an agent named Abud. On one hand, Abud has been a great assist and support to my journey, as he was involved in every step throughout the process. He was very responsive to all my concerns and inquiries before and after the operations. On the other hand, everyone at the clinic that I was referred to (EstEthica) was very nice and welcoming. The in-person consultant on site (Lamia) was extremely helpful and kind. She, along with the whole clinic staff, made me feel so comfortable and made the whole trip seem as smooth as possible, despite the discomfort after the surgeries. In terms of the results, I can not speak of this just yet as it has only been a week since I have had my operations. However, I will definitely come back within a couple of months to update my review and speak about the results and any other additional notes along the way. In a nutshell, all I can say that I am grateful for everything so far, and I truly appreciate everyone that was involved in this process! P.S. as a word of advice, if you are having a hair transplant operation, I highly recommend having it at least 3 - 4 days before your departure flight back home, as the post operation instructions are a bit intense and not being in a rush would significantly help with the recovery process.

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.
