Flymedi- Abud Alielah

I found flymedi based on a recommendation by a friend of the family, I was given Abud contact with high recommendation of his service and I was not disappointed at all ! From day one Abud was very helpful and professional. Abud found for me the suitable medical center and the perfect surgeon! He was always available day and night and on weekends as well and very patient with my unlimited questions and inquiries :) and very clear with provided information. After agreeing on the price, place, doctor and dates of the surgery, Abud took care of and planned everything from the day of arrival until the departure, including the hotel, driver, dates of surgery, consultations and more. I am very satisfied, everything was great 👍🏻 I would definitely use his services again I definitely recommend ✅ ✅ ✅

Never expected such a great hospitality…

Never expected such a great hospitality from Flymedi as a foreigner. From the time I landed in Turkey to the time I come back in my country I was treated as a friend. Thank you Yasmin for guiding me all the way. As you promised, I was not placed on the wait list.

Made my trip overseas so much easier!

Yasmin was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! She told me how to get a travel visa and luckily warned me of any travel restrictions that were going on! I had to rebook my trip twice due to covid & restrictions and Yasmin handled everything on the hospitals end. One of the times I had to rebook it was because my layover was in london and Turkey banned all incoming travel from the UK. The airline never notified me so if it wasn't for Yasmin warning me I would have gotten on the plane and been stuck in london! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Yasmin made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

Recommended For Tip Plasty

For people with a narrow, boxy, bulbous or broad nose, tip plasty or nose tip surgery is recommended. Patients who are not satisfied with the shape or size of the tip of their noses are good candidates for nose tip plasty if they do not have any condition that would interfere with surgery as a result of a medical examination. Patients with breathing problems caused by the tip of their nose can also benefit from nose tip surgery.

Not Recommended For Tip Plasty

Nose tip surgery or tip plasty is a safe and less invasive plastic surgery procedure, but as with any surgery, some precautions should be taken into account. Individuals suffering from severe health conditions such as heart problems, lung disease or morbid obesity may not be the ideal candidate for this operation. Children and adolescents cannot have tip plasty because their physical development is not over. Some patients may require a full rhinoplasty instead of a tip rhinoplasty.

Discharge From Hospital

Patient may spend one night in hospital

Duration Of Operation

1 to 4 hours

Overview

Tip plasty, also called nose tip surgery or tip rhinoplasty, is a kind of rhinoplasty procedure preferred by patients from all over the world to change the nose tip to obtain an aesthetically pleasing image.

Preparation

Patients should avoid any blood thinners such as aspirin, vitamins, herbal supplements, or herbal teas at least 2 weeks before going in for nose tip surgery. As smoking can have a negative impact on the tip plasty surgery result, patients should stop smoking at least a month before and after surgery. 

How It Is Performed

There are two main types of rhinoplasty: Closed rhinoplasty and open rhinoplasty. Depending on the patient's wishes, the doctor may opt for one or the other, but for nose tip surgery, only the open technique can be used. In the case of anesthesia, there are two options that the surgeon can choose for this surgery: general anesthesia and local anesthesia. Once the anesthesia has started, the surgeon can proceed to make an incision in the columella. A cartilage graft may be required for the tip plasty. The surgeon then begins to change and reshape the cartilage, skin, and other nasal tissues according to the patient's wishes, expectations, and general facial features. 

Once the desired result is achieved, the surgeon will close the incision by using stitches, and then bandages are applied to the area. The tip plasty recovery period can begin.In some cases, tip plasty and alarplasty for alar base reduction are performed together.

Recovery

The recovery time of the tip plasty lasts about 2 weeks. Patients usually return to work within about a week, but contact exercises and activities should be avoided for up to 4 weeks. In some patients, it may be necessary to wear a nasal splint in the period of healing.

Risks

Tip plasty surgery is a safe procedure but complications can occur in some cases. Tip plasty surgery complications can include: 

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • A small scar on the columella
  • Difficult breathing during the tip rhinoplasty healing time
  • Some patients may require revision surgery after tip plasty

Side Effects

Patients can feel some pain during the recovery period. Swelling and bruising can also be seen, but postoperative side effects spontaneously decrease and disappear within a few days. The swelling will be sufficiently reduced in around 4 weeks after nose tip surgery.

Success Rates

The average nose tip surgery satisfaction rate is around 90%.

Before And After

Nose tip surgery is a reliable and safe way of turning the nose tip into a more pleasant and attractive shape. It is of vital importance to comply strictly with the doctor's instructions throughout the process. Patients need to follow guidelines thoroughly and stop smoking at least a month before and after the nose tip surgery.

Rhinoplasty vs. Tip Plasty – What is the Difference?
Rhinoplasty surgery can be performed in order to modify several structures of the nose, including the radix, bridge and also the tip. A tip plasty procedure can only aim to improve the shape or size of the nasal tip. 

What Are the Advantages to Tip Plasty?
Nose tip surgery has different advantages, including: 

  • Less bruising and swelling than the whole rhinoplasty after the procedure
  • Lower possibility of developing risks and complications
  • Low chance of damaging other structures such as the septum
  • Shorter recovery period



How Old Do I Have to Be for Tip Plasty?
To be a right candidate for the surgery depends on many factors apart from the age but generally speaking, boys can have tip plasty once they reach 17 and girls should be at around 16. Because the nose should reach full size before the surgery.
