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

Overview

Excessive sweating or Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition caused excessive, uncontrollable sweating. Normal sweating has lots of benefit for our bodies. It basically helps to cool the body and it prevents us from overheating. However, people who have hyperhidrosis, sweat even when the body does not need this function at all. Most of the people who have hyperhidrosis sweat from one or two areas of the body. The most often excessive sweating areas are palms, feet, underarms, faceor head.

 

As it is a difficult condition, people always look for a successful excessive sweating treatment. There are medical treatments, as well as natural remedies for getting rid of Hyperhidrosis. The most common medical extreme sweating treatments are:

  • Antiperspirants— The first excessive sweating treatment the dermatologists use for this condition.
  • Iontophoresis—A device is passed through the ionized water to treat the excessive sweating of hands and feet.
  • Botox injections—Botulinum toxin A (Botox) is injected to release of a chemical that signals the sweatglands to activate.
  • Prescription medicine—These medications inhibit the transmission of parasympathetic nerve impulses
  • Surgery—Surgeons can use one of those surgical excessive sweating treatment techniques; 
  • Excision
  • Liposuction
  • Curettage
  • Laser surgery 

Preparation

Preparations for excessive sweating treatment will vary depending on the procedure to be applied. If you have just started treatment, you will be offered methods of excessive sweating that require less preparation before choosing surgery if none of them is satisfied. In surgery, doctors will tell you what to avoid before surgery. For example, tobacco and tobacco products, blood thinners, or some of the herbal supplements should not be used in the preparation stage of excessive sweating treatment.

How It Is Performed

Although there is increased awareness with the use of botulinum toxin injections as a non-surgical treatment of hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating, the results are generally not durable beyond 14 months. However, ETS (endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy) is a minimally invasive and permanent technique that has increased the interest in excessive sweating treatment. ETS is generally performed under general anesthesia and during the surgery, a portion of the sympathetic nerve trunk in the thoracic region is destroyed to treat excessive sweating in certain parts of the body (usually in the palms or face). Surgeons use a miniature camera to insert into the chest under the armpit and then they cut or otherwise destroy the nerve paths associated with the overactive sweat glands. This procedure usually has successful outcomes and is very useful to treat excessive sweating.

Recovery

Initial or non-invasive excessive sweating treatment options do not require any recovery period, but surgery does. Recovery is usually a couple of days, although patients may feel pain and discomfort for up to a week and need to limit their activity during that time. If the surgery has not been sufficient enough, it is also possible to perform secondary surgery or to use Botox or antiperspirants to control sweating from remaining sweat glands.

Risks

Some of the most common risks and complications of excessive sweating treatments are:

 

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Soreness
  • Damaging the nerves
  • Inability to tolerate heat
  • Abnormal heartbeat

Side Effects

There are mild to severe side effects can occur during or after the excessive sweating treatment such as: 

  • Loss of feeling in the underarm
  • Scarring
  • Bruising
  • Compensatory sweating
  • Low blood pressure
  • Muscle weakness (Botox injections)

Success Rates

Excessive sweating treatment options have high satisfaction rates from initial drug treatments to surgery. Experienced doctors play a big role in increasing the likelihood of satisfaction by offering the most appropriate treatment option depending on the patient's complaint and general condition.

Before And After

2 to 3% of Americans suffer from excessive sweating of their armpits, feet, palms or faces. Armpit problems usually begin in adolescence, while palms and floor sweating usually starts around the age of 13. If left untreated, these problems may persist throughout life and have an impact on quality of life. After excessive sweating treatment options, patients feel more comfortable and confident because they get rid of the problem that affects their lives so much.

Faq

What causes excessive sweating?

It is not accepted yet, but hyperhidrosis seems to stem from a minor malfunction in the nervous system. There's also some evidence that genetic susceptibility is another reason to have excessive sweating.

 

Is Excessive Sweating Treatment Painful?

No, non-invasive treatments have not any potential to create pain and patients do not feel anything during the surgery. If any discomfort such as post-operative pain is occur, doctors may prescribe medicines to release the pain. 

 

Are there any natural remedies for excessive sweating?

Natural remedies to treat excessive sweating include herbal substances such as sage tea, chamomile or valerian root. Acupuncture, biofeedback, hypnosis, and relaxation techniques have also discussed as potential treatments. Recently it is believed that eating a completely gluten-free diet can cause excessive sweating to stop. There is little research to recommend such natural remedies and they have not proven yet, so it would be better to visit a dermatologist to start an excessive sweating treatment by his or her guidance.
