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.

Long waiting times in UK…

Because of long waiting times in UK hospitals due to Covid19, I hit upon the idea of having my bilateral hernia surgery done while on a 2-week holiday in Antalya. After making inquiries through Yasmin, I had a short but comprehensive consultation with an eminent surgeon Prof Alihan Gürkan and my operation was scheduled for a day halfway through my stay in Antalya. It went well with keyhole surgery, I stayed in overnight and was discharged the next day, which gave me 6 days to recover before my flight home to Scotland. Yasmin kept in touch throughout, making sure I had transport to and from the hospital, and a special thanks to Fatma, my mentor and guide at the Memorial Hospital on my day of tests and examinations. I telephoned my surgeon a few days after the operation for advice on removing my plasters and he was most helpful and reassuring about my complete recovery. I was not too fond of the breakfast, but considered it as another form of medicine! My flight home was amazingly comfortable without painkillers, although they were definitely needed for a few days after my operation. In conclusion, I would be happy to have other treatment like this, though in a nice sort of way I hope never to set eyes on the Memorial Hospital again. 🙂

A very positive outcome

A very positive outcome, following my decision to pursue in having dental cosmetic surgery/treatment carried out in Turkey. Excellent advisory skills by Flymedi rep Abud. He was professional, well informed, and followed me up with total attention throughout the whole process. Last but not least, I thank Dr Ahmed Kumsan and his team at Infinity Smiles Dental Clinic for their commitment and professionalism. Highly recommended.

Thank you Flymedi

I was considering several different options, however Abud was by far the most committed and helpful of all the agents I'd been in discussions with. Everything was organised for me and I was guided throughout and if I was feeling apprehensive about anything or had any questions Abud was always on hand to answer my questions and give reassurances. I'm so happy with the results of my operation and I was left overwhelmed by how friendly and supportive everyone was throughout. If you're considering using flymedi then I can honestly say you'll be delighted with the service both before during and after your surgery.

Recommended For Myomectomy

Female patients who are suffering from uterine fibroids (also called myoma or leiomyoma of the uterus) can be the candidates for myomectomy. It does not happen often, but sometimes leiomyoma of the uterus develops cancer, and it may cause bleeding, pain, and infertility.

Not Recommended For Myomectomy

If the patient's leiomyoma did not turn into cancer, which rarely happens, then the patient is suitable for the operation. It is relatively a safer and less complex operation than a hysterectomy.

Overview

Myomectomyis a surgery for the removal of uterine fibroids. Also, this treatment lets patients avoid hysterectomy operation. There are different kinds of myomectomy, which are hysteroscopic myomectomy, laparoscopic myomectomy, an abdominal myomectomy (or laparotomic myomectomy). In contrast to hysterectomy, patients who had myomectomy can get pregnant after the operation.


Types of Myomectomy Surgery

There are three main types of myomectomy procedure: 

• Hysteroscopic Myomectomy – hysteroscopic myomectomy is usually used to remove uterine fibroids growing inside the uterus. Hysteroscopy is a medical device inserted through the vagina and allowing for operation without external incisions. 

• Laparoscopic Myomectomy – This method is very useful in cases of minor uterine fibroids which are located on the outer wall of the uterus. Laparoscopic myomectomy is performed with a medical tool called laparoscope. It involves a camera and a light. Surgeons make several small incisions instead of a single big one.

• Abdominal Myomectomy (Laparotomic Myomectomy) – In this method, surgeons make a large incision in the abdomen. This method finds its use in complicated cases of leiomyoma of the uterus, with large numbers of uterine fibroids in different locations.

Preparation

Before the surgery, some patients may need hormonal therapy with so-called GnRH-a. It would be effective in reducing the bleeding from the uterus. Also, before the operation, you should always inform your doctors about the medical conditions you have and the medicines you are taking. Therefore, your doctors may want you to stop taking some of the medicines which may affect the process negatively. 

How It Is Performed

Even though there are different methods (hysteroscopic myomectomy, laparoscopic myomectomy, and abdominal myomectomy) to perform myomectomy, their purpose is the same, which is to the removal of the uterine fibroids. After the operation, surgeons pay attention to the operated area in case of extreme bleeding to stop it, and they might make stitches. (like in the abdominal myomectomy and, to a smaller extent, in the laparoscopic myomectomy).

Recovery

The myomectomy recovery period varies depending on the type of the myomectomy performed. Hysteroscopic myomectomy has a very short recovery time, which is a couple of days while the recovery period for abdominal myomectomy is around 6 weeks. In general, during the myomectomy recovery period, patients may experience pain, but it would not require any medical intervention.

Risks

Even though the myomectomy surgery is a safe one, still there are some risks and complications. For example, surgeons may cause harm to surround organs during the operation. Also, infection is one of the complications of myomectomy. Rarely, this surgery may cause infertility in some of the patients. Yet the most important complication of myomectomy is extreme bleeding. Surgeons may need to perform a hysterectomy to be able to stop it.

Side Effects

Myomectomy surgery has no known side effects.

Success Rates

There is no clear data about the success rate of myomectomy operation, but it is known that many patients who had myomectomy are pleased. 

Faq

What Is Myomectomy? 

Myomectomy is performed as a treatment for uterine fibroids. Myomectomy can be performed in three different ways. During the hysteroscopic myomectomy, surgeons remove uterine fibroids from the vagina while in laparoscopic myomectomy several small cuts are made and in abdominal myomectomy, there is a big cut made to perform the operation. There are different kinds of methods for the different needs of the patients.

 

 

Myomectomy vs. Hysterectomy – Which Is Better? 

The answer depends on the patient's expectation. If the patient is willing to get pregnant, then myomectomy is the best choice. However, hysterectomy enjoys higher success rates when it comes to the overall satisfaction of patients. 

 

Is There a Connection between Fibroids and Pregnancy? 

Many patients have uterine fibroids without even realizing it. Yet there might be issues caused by leiomyoma of the uterus which can lead to performing of myomectomy surgery.
