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.

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.

Faq

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.
