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.

Overview

Neck lift surgery, also known as platysmaplasty surgery, is a type of plastic surgery performed widely all around the world in order to improve the pleasant appearance of the neck region. 

Sometimes platysmaplasty surgery or neck lift surgery is used to remove excess tissue as well as tightening the skin and underlying muscle tissue in the region. Although non-surgical techniques are often used with products such as laser, tape, cream or botulinum toxin, the surgery offers a more permanent and long-lasting solution. Ultherapy, which is one of the non-surgical lifting procedures, is safe enough to be applied to almost any area of the face and neck. Surgeons may maximize the overall amount of skin firming patients receive and create more lifting by combining this procedure with a thread lift. Scarscould also be minimized in this way. 


Many people feel self-conscious about the appearance of their neck because it is obvious. Sagging excess skin and tissue around their necks can make them feel unattractive or undesirable.

What Can Lead To An Unattractive Neck? 

Being overweight, even by a few pounds, can lead to an unattractive neck. The neck area can be too fleshy or obtuse. On the other hand, losing excess weight can also cause excess sagging skin in the neck area. Some patients have a genetic predisposition for fatty tissue growth and accumulated in the jaw area. Aging is another factor that can lead to an unattractive neck, as the skin loses its elasticity, and it begins to sag in time.  


When platysmaplasty surgery or neck lift surgery is combined with the following procedures, more successful results can be achieved:

 

● Facelift - also known as rhytidectomy, can eliminate the appearance of aging and wrinkles in the face area

● Chin augmentation - weak jaw patients can have more aesthetic jaws with this procedure

● Brow lift - this procedure is performed to elevate the eyebrows in order to make the forehead skin appear smoother and younger

Preparation

Platysmaplasty surgery patients need to have realistic expectations from the procedure– this is the first preparation step for neck lift surgery. As with any surgery, patients need to stop smoking at least a month before and after the procedure. Herbal teas, herbal supplements, vitamins, anti-inflammatory drugs, and aspirin are forbidden at least 2 weeks before and after the procedure is performed.ed.

How It Is Performed

Platysmaplasty surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, making it practically painless. The procedure itself lasts around 2-3 hours. The surgeon will begin the operation by creating incisions under the ear and under the jaw. Subsequently, a portion of excess skin is removed. At this point, fat tissue and muscle tissue can also be removed. In order to achieve a better result, different neck lifting techniques can be applied to meet the needs of the patient. When the desired result is achieved, the surgeon closes the incision and the neck lift recovery time can begin.

Recovery

The average neck lift recovery period lasts around 2 weeks. During this time, patients are required to wear a special compression garment that facilitates the healing process and limits any potential scarring from the neck lift surgery. Patients usually return to work and their daily routines after approximately 2 weeks of platysmaplasty, but sporting activities should be avoided for at least 3 weeks. It is forbidden to smoke and drinks excess alcohol during the neck lift recovery period as the risk of postoperative complications may increase.

Risks

Neck lift surgery complications can include the following: 
 


  • Allergic reactions to anesthesia 
    Infection in the neck area 
    Hematomas 
    Nerve injury in the neck area 
    Scarring

Numbness, pain or poor wound healing are other neck lift surgery side effects. In around a week or two these post-op effects will pass, if it will not, patients should inform their surgeons. 

Success Rates

Neck lift surgery reviews set the average platysmaplasty surgery success rate at around 94%.

Before And After

Patients will be able to notice their neck lift surgery results in around a week. The effects of platysmaplasty surgery last between 5 and 10 years, but patients should pay attention to some precautions in their lifestyle to maintain their results.
