(Chin and neck liposuction) great experience with Abud

I found flymedi while I was looking for a doctor in Istanbul to do a chin and neck liposuction. Abud from Flymedi contacted me and he was great from the beginning until even after I went back home, he took care of everything and was always available, definitely the right person for this experience! My doctor (Dr Ozge Ergun) was also great, I'm very satisfied and I can only recommend Flymedi, the best place to find your treatment!

5* service

From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

Great Service

After a long research for hair transplant, I came across Flymedi. I had several reasons to get this service from them such as getting rid of the bureaucratic process, handling accommodation issues, personal assistant, etc. I felt comfortable once it is done by Flymedi as full of customer-oriented style, I was just worried about the surgery which went well too! Thank you Flymedi team. Make sure that I will be letting people know your passion for helping patients who admit to have surgery done in Poland.

Recommended For Kidney Transplant

A Kidney transplant operation, otherwise called a renal transplant, is suggested for patients experiencing a final-phase renal illness.

There are various health circumstances that may result in a final-phase renal illness, involving: 

● Infections
● Malicious hypertension
● Diabetes mellitus
● Polycystic kidney illness

Diabetes is the most widely recognized reason for final-phase liver illness. Around 25% of renal transplant patients experience the ill effects of diabetes.

Not Recommended For Kidney Transplant

A kidney transplant operation is not suggested for patients experiencing a liver, heart, or lung illness. Kidney transplantation is not suggested for patients smoking excessively or experiencing morbid obesity because they have an increased risk of arising complications from the kidney transplant operation.

Duration Of Operation

3 to 4 hours

Overview

Kidney transplantation, otherwise called a renal transplant or kidney transplant procedure is a kind of organ transplant where a healthy kidney of a healthy donor is transplanted into a patient suffering a final-phase renal illness.

Two kinds of renal transplant can be seen: 

● Cadaveric renal transplant – the kidney transplant operation from a deceased donor
● Living donor kidney transplantation – the kidney transplant operation from a living donor, generally an individual from the receiver’s family.

While numerous receivers usually receive kidneys from members in the family, the donor does not need to be biologically related to the recipient. Renal transplant necessities are basic: 

The donor and recipient must have a congruent ABO blood group and a congruent HLA (Human Leukocyte Antigen) system.

Preparation

Patients have to quit smoking beforehand the kidney transplantation operation. Also, blood thinners should be avoided. Some patients may need to lose weight before the kidney transplant can start.

How It Is Performed

The kidney transplant operation is carried out under general anesthesia and often lasts 3 or 4 hours to finish. The surgeon will make an incision in the abdomen area and then will start attaching the donor kidney to the veins and arteries in the receiver’s lower abdomen. The ureter will then be attached from the donor's kidney to the receiver’s bladder. After the new kidney acquires a stable supply of blood and is attached to the bladder, it will begin operating immediately, generating urine. The incision area is then shut with sews, and the patient may start their recovery process from a kidney transplant.

Recovery

During the recovery period of a kidney transplant, the patient will be prescribed immunosuppressant drugs, which ceases the recipient’s immune system from refusing the new kidney. Patients generally remain about 5 to 7 days in the hospital. The new kidney will begin functioning at full potential about 5 to 10 days after the renal transplant.

Patients have to stay away from green teas, pomegranate, or grapefruit since these foods are recognized as interacting negatively with the kidney transplantation operation.

Risks

Complications of a kidney transplant can involve:

● Infection
● Proteinuria
● Ulceration of the abdominal
● Gastrointestinal inflammation
● Transplant refusal – chronic, acute or hyperacute

Kidney transplant refusal happens in 10 to 15% of renal transplant patients throughout the initial 2 months after the kidney transplant operation. In such a situation, medicinal changes or alternative treatments are necessary..

Side Effects

Patients can experience pain, discomfort, a sense of weakness after the renal transplant operation. The patient’s immune system would require to be suppressed and this can result in additional health issues.

Success Rates

90% success rate is seen, 5 years after the renal transplant is done.

Before And After

Kidney transplantation can lengthen the life of people experiencing a final-phase renal illness. Patients of renal transplant generally live 10 to 15 years longer than patients remained on dialysis. Mostly, younger kidney transplantation patients experience a more significant increase in longevity. Patients generally have more energy, less limited diets, and struggle with fewer health difficulties after a kidney transplant operation.

Faq

– What can I do to avoid transplant refusal after a renal transplant?
Patients need to follow the immunosuppressant drug plan thoroughly in order to avoid kidney transplant refusal. Even if the new kidney is healthy, it doesn’t mean it cannot get diseased if the renal transplant patient has an unhealthy lifestyle.

– What is a perfect match kidney?
A perfect match is when there is a degree of kinship between the donor and the receiver – e.g. a brother or a sister.

– If I get a new kidney through a kidney transplant procedure, will the diseased kidney be removed?
The diseased kidney will not be removed during the renal transplant procedure – it can result in more medical complications.
