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 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.
