Abud exceeded all my expectations

Abud exceeded all my expectations for Flymedi. He was readily available to answer my questions and put my mind at ease. I was never made to feel like I asked too many questions or rushed at all, he spoke to me as if he were a long time friend. He was also very clear about everything I am going to expect on my trip, from accommodations to the procedure, down to the weather and beautiful things to see in Turkey. Abud makes things so simple and takes the stress away from traveling. I could not and most likely would not have done this without Abud and his help!

First time plastic surgery experience with FlyMedi

I contacted Flymedi about getting a breast augmentation done and I was contacted by Abud shortly thereafter who was helped me through the initial planning phase so well. Since I am coming all the way from Africa and have never traveled alone, Abud organized a video call with the surgeon to go over some of the questions I had as well as my expectations of the surgery. I am very pleased with the service so far and already feel safe about traveling to Istanbul for my surgery

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

Recommended For Male Breast Implants

Candidates for the male to female breast implant surgery are usually people who do not consider their biological sex to be representing their gender. In order to achieve harmony between their biology and gender, they decide for male breast implant surgery despite the use of feminizing hormones may not be satisfied with the size of their breasts.  

A male getting breast implant has ceased to be a scandal, and such a situation becomes more and more acceptable in many societies. Breast implants for males are available in many clinics.

Not Recommended For Male Breast Implants

Hormone treatment applied, which usually takes for 18 months or more, may have already increased the amount of breast tissue, and it would be advantageous. However, individual assessment is always of the main importance.

Also, many doctors expect from a male getting breast implants to provide an opinion of a psychologist stating that the patient is struggling with biological sex and wants to change the gender. Only when they decide to perform a male breast augmentation surgery.

Overview

Male breast implants are usually a part of the male to female sex reassignment surgery. Male getting breast implants rarely make it for a temporary whim but instead tries to express new gender identity. Male breast augmentation surgery procedure is literally as same as with the general breast augmentation procedure, despite may differ in some steps due to the differences in anatomy. Breast augmentation surgery with implants is an operation to change and enhance the physical form of the breasts to provide a proportionate, feminine shape.

Male breast implants are a way to achieve better harmony between body and mind for people who do not consider themselves male anymore and want to explore their new identity fully. 

Preparation

Male breast augmentation surgery preparations do not vary from those for female breast augmentation. Patients wishing to get male breast implants shall inform their doctors about medical conditions they suffer from as well as provide a list of medications taken by them in order to avoid any circumstances that can affect the results of male breast implants surgery. Smoking and drinking alcohol are not really recommended before male breast augmentation surgery. The patients also avoid taking aspirin and certain anti-inflammatory drugs as they can increase bleeding. Additionally, patients are asked to fast for a few hours prior to the surgery. 

How It Is Performed

Male breast implants may be of a few types, including: 
• round implants, teardrop implants (shape-based categorization)

• saline implants, silicone implants (material-based categorization) 

A male who will get the breast implants chooses the type and size of breast implants for males before the surgery with the consultation with his doctor. Additionally, male breast augmentation surgery may vary also depending on the location of the implants where they place under or over the muscle.

Doctors performing the male to female breast implant surgery perform a cut, through which they are able to insert male breast implants and position them properly in order to keep them still and prevent further changes. Then, the incisions are stitched carefully, and the breast augmentation recovery process may start.

Recovery

Recovery for patients getting male breast implants will take a few weeks. First weeks after male breast implant surgery usually causes swelling and bruising together with specific amounts of pain, but these are manageable with prescribed painkillers and special garments. The patients also shouldn't do any heavy lifting for up to six weeks after getting their breast implants.

Male getting breast implants may come back to work after 1 to 4 weeks, depending mostly on the type of job.

Risks

Breast implants for males may, similarly to breast implants for females, lead to certain complications, including infection, bleeding, bruising, scars, bad reaction to anesthesia, numbness of nipples, deformation, deflation or change of position of male breast implants and others. 

Side Effects

To major side effects of male breast implants belong initial swelling and bruising, which should fade as the time from surgery passes.

Success Rates

The exact success rates for male breast implants surgery is not known, but an absolute majority of male breast augmentation surgery cases are successful. However, over time, many people who have undergone a male breast augmentation surgery decide on a breast implant revision in order to obtain a better form of male breast implants or to correct their position.
