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

Silhouette lift is a minimally invasive procedure, mostly done to rejuvenate the appearance of the middle face, neck and brow region. The process effectively elevates and corrects drooping tissues in these areas with the help of very fine threads that are inserted under the skin. The threads themselves are very similar to those used in facelift surgery – they are made from polypropylene, a material which is currently used for sutures and stitches inside the body.The special facelift procedure called the silhouette InstaLift is an FDA-approved procedure and also used commonly. Surgeons use absorbable sutures with tiny bi-directional cones in this "instant" procedure in order to lift and suspend the deeper layers of the skin. 

 

Silhouette lift is a very safe and effective procedure which offers immediate results. The procedure also has considerable advantages to traditional facelift surgery: 

● No incision – a silhouette lift is a minimally invasive procedure; it means that there is no incision used during the operation. Patients will have no visible scars as well as the risk of infection is minimized as well.

● Speedy recovery – the average silhouette lift recovery period is much shorter than with full facelift surgery. 

● Anesthesia – there is no need to use general anesthesia for a silhouette lift as it used in traditional facelift surgery, local anesthesia is used instead. Therefore, more people can have this procedure, since some people are incompatible with the risks associated with general anesthesia. 

● Good results – a silhouette lift provides immediate remarkable results which last for a certain period before other procedures may become more necessary.

Preparation

Vitamins, blood thinners, anti-inflammatory drugs, some herbal supplements, and herbal teas should be avoided at least 1 week before the silhouette lift. In addition, smokers should stop smoking at least one week before the procedure. If the patient suffers from any infection around the face or neck region, it needs to be treated before the silhouette lift.

How It Is Performed

Local anesthesia is firstly used in the area where the sutures or threads will be placed. Once it applies, the surgeon creates a micro-incision before starting to insert the threads into the treated area. Typically, a long needle is used for this part of the procedure. The threads used have a small umbrella-like part which latches on to tissue, lifting and repositioning it accordingly.

Once the desired appearance is achieved, the needle is removed, and the thread is knotted under the skin. This cannot be seen or felt at this point. There is no need for bandages or sutures for this procedure.

Recovery

Patients usually return to normal activities in around two days after the silhouette lift procedure. The skin needs around a week to 10 days to completely recover from the procedure. All marks relating to the silhouette lift are invisible by this point. During the first two days, if the patients may experience swelling, discomfort, and pain, they can use icepacks and painkiller to ease these post-op side effects. 
For around 3 weeks after the procedure, some restrictions need to be taken into account. Patients must avoid rubbing their face too much or trauma to the face or neck. No pressure should be applied to the face as it can move and remove the silhouette threads.
