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

Chin implant surgerychin augmentation surgerygenioplasty surgery and mentoplasty surgery are closely related procedures, usually performed in order to improve contours of the chin, neck and jawline.


Although these procedures are technically different, chin implant surgery, chin augmentation, genioplasty surgery and mentoplasty surgery can be performed in just one setting. 

What is the difference between them? 
Chin implant surgery – This procedure uses an implant prosthesis to provide both men and women patients with better facial features balance – usually, it adds more projection to the chin 
● Chin augmentation surgery - The jaw bone is directly enhanced in order to achieve the desired result
● Sliding genioplasty surgery – The chin bone is cut and then repositioned to a more appropriate location – this procedure typically adds more vertical height to the chin 
● Mentoplasty surgery – This procedure is performed in order to reduce the sizes of the chins or correct any malformations of the chin caused by abnormal jaw bones 

Chin augmentation surgery, chin implant surgery, sliding genioplasty surgery and mentoplasty surgery are very popular choices among both patients and surgeons from all around the world because of the effectiveness as well as the simplicity and safety of the procedures. These surgeries can be performed either individually or in coordination with rhinoplasty or a neck lift procedure.

Patients who want to benefit from the advantageous cost of medical tourism abroad, travel to countries such as Turkey for their chin implant surgeries to meet the skilled surgeons, to have the best healthcare and to get a comfortable recovery. 

Preparation

Patients need to quit smoking at least a month before and after the surgery. Blood thinners such as aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, herbal teas and supplements are forbidden for at least 2 weeks before the procedure.

How It Is Performed

Prior to surgery, x-rays of the chin and face are taken and the surgeon decides on which parts of the chin area to modify based on these x-rays.

Depending on the patient’s expectation and his or her facial balance, one of these procedures can be performed: mentoplasty surgery, sliding genioplasty surgery, chin augmentation surgery or chin implant surgery.


Anesthesia choice for these procedures can be local or general. Incisions can be created inside, in the mouth or outside, right under the chin.

If the patient requires a chin implant, the surgeon will create a small pocket in front of the chin bone but under the muscle in order to place the implant. 

Different types of implants can be chosen, general options are: 
● Bone grafted from the patient 
● Fat tissue 
● Silicone implant 
● Biological inserts 

An artificial chin implant is one of the most preferred options as it has a lower risk of developing complications such as infections. The surgeon may also create cuts into the jaw bone or remove and reposition the chin bone for a better effect.

Recovery

The average chin implant surgery recovery period lasts around 3 weeks. Patients usually return to work and normal activities in around 2 weeks. Patients need to sleep face-up, their heads should be elevated, for a minimum of 1 to 2 weeks after surgery. It helps control post-op swelling and protect the incisions. 

Around 80% of the post-op swelling will gradually disappear in 3 weeks. Patients should avoid chewing for the first few days after the procedure – liquid or soft foods can be consumed during this time.

Risks

Chin implant surgery risks and complications can include: 

● The shift in implant position
● Asymmetry 
● Infection 
● Scarring around the incision area

Side Effects

Chin implant surgery side effects can include: 
 

● Anesthesia side effects
● Swelling 
● Lower lip numbness 
● Hematoma (internal bleeding)

Success Rates

Chin implant surgery reviews set the average success rate at 94%.

Before And After

Results are immediately noticeable after chin implant surgery. Patients need to avoid chewing for a few days and also avoid smoking for a month after the operation. These precautions will help reduce surgical scar and allow the body to heal better. The post-op swelling will pass in around 3 weeks, but the bone, if altered, will continue to heal over the course of a year.

Faq

Can Chin Implant Surgery Be Combined With Other Procedures?
Definitely – plastic surgeons recommend combining chin implant procedure usually with rhinoplasty. That way, it is easier to achieve a pleasing facial balance and harmony.  

When Can I Resume Sports?
Sports or any other effortful physical activities need to be avoided for at least 3 weeks after chin implant surgery. 

Can The Implant Affect Shaving?
Absolutely not – male patients will be able to shave as normal, approximately one week from the operation. Electric razors or shavers can be used again around 10 days after the procedure.
