The first time I had some doubts about the intervențion , Due to the fact that the hair regenerates periodic,what I can say is that the result of a hair transplant is 100% successful. This revival comes after a period of 9 months waiting to see the result of the intervention. I recommend Flymedi and of course I recommend the person who was near me during the intervention Mr Mustafa. Mr. Mustafa is a person I rarely met. I can say that everything related to professionalism is on his side. I recommend to all those who want to have professional interventions, to have the highest confidence in Flymedi. Thank you Flymedi !

I came across FlyMedi online while looking for medical tourism options for septorhinoplasty in Turkey. I was contacted by FlyMedi's Nadia via email within hours of submitting for more information on their website. Nadia made herself available 24/7 via email and WhatsApp, even as I traveled across multiple time zones. Nadia provided multiple options in multiple locations with pros and cons and for each and stayed in touch throughout the process. I already recommended FlyMedi and specifically Nadia to friends and family considering Turkey for any medical tourism they may be considering. Thank you Nadia!

I'd been researching the procedure for a while and the cost in Australia was significantly higher than in Turkey. I came across the Flymedi website and within hours of submitting an enquiry, Nadia had reached out. She provided multiple quotes with different options, background on the doctors and hospitals. Nadia was available 24/7 and really helped me through everything from start to finish. Great business idea, exceptional staff and great customer service

I am really happy that I have planned my operation through Flymedi. Robin took great care of me and was always there for me and made everything possible. I had a breast lift and tummy tuck and had liposuction by Dr. Asli Datli. MedicalPark in Istanbul. she is a super doctor, the results has become very nice and was also there well cared for. Nurse Yeliz is adorable and has always been by my side. She was also always available and answered all my questions. I have felt very well, thanks again to all I am very satisfied.

Recommended For Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is mostly performed as a result of the gallstones. Although gallstones usually cause no problem sometimes, they may cause pain and irritation and cholecystitis, which is a condition of an infected gallbladder. Gallbladder removal surgery is recommended for patients who are suffering from pain caused by the gallstones. Even though there are other options for the treatment of gallstones, laparoscopic cholecystectomy remains to be the best one.

Not Recommended For Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

Not all of the patients who have gallstones experience repetitive, strong pain. Therefore, sometimes, patients do not realize their gallstones. Also, occasionally, gallbladder removal is not needed to get rid of the gallstones. However, most of the time, cholecystectomy is performed for the cholecystitis.

Overview

Laparoscopic cholecystectomyis a type of cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder) operation which is performed with the medical tool called laparoscopy. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is often performed for the treatment of cholecystitis or inflammation of the gallbladder. Gallbladder storages and collects the liquid called bile, which produced in the liver. Just like the appendix, the gallbladder can be removed from the body without the experience of any serious side effects.

Preparation

Before the laparoscopic cholecystectomy, it is important to talk to your doctor about the medical conditions you have and medicines you are taking. Your doctor may want you to stop taking some of the medicines. Also, some surgeons suggest a diet to follow before the operation. In addition, you should not eat anything for a couple of hours before the surgery.In this way, the risk of laparoscopic cholecystectomy complications will be kept lower.

How It Is Performed

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is becoming to be the most popular way of performing cholecystectomy. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is shown to be an effective way with fewer risks for the management of cholecystitis. During the laparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery, surgeons make several small cuts rather than a single big one like made in the open surgery. Through one of the cuts, laparoscope is inserted so as to see the incision site. Different medical tools are inserted through the other incisions to perform the surgery.

Recovery

Recovery from the laparoscopic cholecystectomy takes several weeks. It usually takes about 2 weeks to go back to work after the surgery. After the gallbladder surgery, there might be some pain experienced, but it can be eased by the painkillers. Also, surgeons may give you antibiotics for your recovery period.

ScarsAfterSurgery

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy scars should fade with time and be hard to spot since laparoscopic cholecystectomy incisions are small, unlike in open gallbladder removal surgery.

Risks

Even though there are few complications regarding the laparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery, patients should be informed about them. Complications of the laparoscopic cholecystectomy include infection, damage to the bile duct, and bile spilling into the abdomen. However, these complications are not very common since the use of laparoscopy causes smaller incisions. 

Success Rates

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a very effective way of performing gallbladder removal with a success rate of 95%.More than that, 90% of patients undergoing removal of gallbladder leave for home within 24 hours after gallbladder removal.

Before And After

Diet after Gallbladder Removal 

To initial gallbladder removal side effects may belong problem with proper digesting the food due to the lack of stocked bile. Though surgeons do not suggest any specific diet to follow after the operation. Side effects of the surgery would pass in a short period of time.Instead, it is advised to keep a balanced, healthy diet after gallbladder removal, without any specific conditions.
