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

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.
