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

Neck liposuction, also known as neck lipoplasty is a simple and popular plastic surgery procedure, usually performed in order to improve the aesthetics of the neck region. Neck liposuction aims for improving the appearance of a “double chin” or fullness underneath the jowls.

It also helps to refine the jawline to enhance the chin or provide harmony in proportion and balance with the facial features.

The procedure can be performed at the same time as neck lift surgery or by itself. The difference between two procedures is that the neck liposuction is only used to remove excess fat from the neck area and the neck lift also aims to tighten the underlying skin and muscle tissue. According to the needs of the patient, the surgeon considers the scope and decides the most appropriate procedure among them.


There are many reasons which can lead to excess and sagging fat tissue in the neck region, including: 

● Being overweight 
● The natural process of aging and gravity
● Genetic heritage

Preparation

Patients should be in good health before undergoing a neck liposuction procedure. If the patient suffers from an active infection in the neck region, it’s better to wait for its treatment is finished first before having neck liposuction. Patients are also required to be in a stable weight, within 20% of their ideal or normal body weight. 

 

The liposuction surgeon needs to know about any medications including antidepressant the patient may have been taking. Blood thinners such as aspirin, omega 3 capsules, anti-inflammatory medicines, and herbal teas are prohibited at least 2 weeks before the neck liposuction procedure. Smoking is also not allowed during this period, as it can have a serious negative effect on the process of surgery and also healing.

How It Is Performed

The neck liposuction procedure is done under general anesthesia. Sometimes it can be performed under local anesthesia, as well. Once the anesthesia kicks in, surgeons insert a small liposuction cannula through 1 or 2 tiny incisions, concealed beneath the chin or behind the ears for removing excess fat on the neck and sculpting the chin and neck. 

 

There are several techniques which can be used to improve the appearance of the neck and contour this region, including: 
● Laser-assisted liposuction 
● Power assisted liposuction 

● Ultrasound-assisted liposuction

Micro neck liposuction

 

Once the desired result is achieved, the incisions are closed with dissolving stitches and the area is wrapped in bandages. Finally, the patient can begin the neck liposuction recovery period which takes around 1-2 weeks.

Recovery

Since the neck liposuction procedure is minimally invasive, patients can usually return to work in less than a week. A special type of compression garment needs to be worn for a few days after the neck liposuction procedure. Patients can experience some degree of pain and discomfort, but prescribed painkillers can easily handle it. Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption are prohibited for at least 2 weeks after the procedure.

Risks

Although neck liposuction is not a dangerousoperation, it has still some risks and complications such as: 

● Allergic reaction to anesthesia 
● Infection 
● Bleeding 
● Excess skin tissue in the neck area 
● Damage to surrounding tissues

Side Effects

Neck liposuction is a safeand popular procedure, but as in any surgical procedures, it has its side effects as well: 

Swelling 
● Bruising 
● Discomfort 
● Pain 
● Temporary numbness 
● Nausea 

● Delayed healing

Success Rates

Neck liposuction reviews set the average success rate at around 90%.

Before And After

Patients will notice the liposuction results in about a week, when most of the swelling will go down. Neck liposuction results can last up to 10 years but it’s up to the patient to maintain a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle.

Faq

When Can I Resume Sports After A Neck Liposuction Procedure? 
Patients can turn back their sportive activities or regular exercises after the incisions are fully healed, in around 2 weeks. 

Are There Any Visible Scars?
Scarring is minimal with the neck liposuction procedure because a few incisions are created around the neck and they are also small. 

Is Neck Liposuction Permanent?
The fat cells are removed permanently during liposuction, but if you gain lots of weight, new fat cells may again accumulate in different areas of your body, for example, in your neck. In order to keep the new enhanced shape after surgery, follow a proper diet and exercise regularly.
