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.

Great experience using Flymedi to find the perfect surgeon and operation for me. Abud answered all my questions and helped so much!

Recommended For Breast Implant Revision

Women who are unhappy with size, shape or appearance of their breast implants and are concerned about the integrity or condition of their implants are good candidates for breast implant revision surgery. 

This plastic surgery offers a possibility of changing the breast implants size and as a result – ensuring that a patient will feel good in her body.  

Not Recommended For Breast Implant Revision

If you are physically healthy and at a stable weight and feel that your current breast implants are not the right size and you want a breast increase or breast reduction without total breast implant removal, a breast implant revision surgery seems like a right choice. Nevertheless, contact with a breast implant revision specialist in order to get full information and have a medical examination.

Duration Of Operation

Overview

Breast implant revision is a common cosmetic surgery among women who have breast implants. It is a corrective surgical procedure included change of implant type, change of implant location, change of implant size, and scar revision. 

Both silicone breast implants and saline implants do not adjust themselves to the changing body. To the contrary – they have a tendency to change shape in a way which doesn’t make women satisfied. 

There are two solutions for misshapen breast implants. One of them is the complete removal of the breast implant, which causes a reduction in the size of the breast. It is preferred by patients who are not satisfied with their large breast implants and who are looking for a natural appearance. However, many patients with breast implants aim at breast reduction without coming back to their previous breast size. Others seek even breast increase to a larger scale. For both these groups, breast implant revision surgery is a perfect solution.

Preparation

The first step you take when preparing for a breast implant revision surgery should be to provide your doctor with information about the medical conditions you have and provide a list of medicines you receive for them. In this way, medicines which may affect the breast implant revision surgery results may be ruled out. Additionally, you should share with your breast implant revision specialist the documentation regarding your previous breast enlargement surgery. Finally, it may be deemed necessary for you to stop smoking for some weeks and fast for some hours before your breast implant revision.

How It Is Performed

There are a few types of breast implant revision. Among them are:

  • Breast Enhancement or Augmentation– when patients think that their breast size is still too small and they decide to increase breast size with larger breast implants.
  • Breast Reduction – for patients who want small breast implants but not a breast implant removal without replacement.
  • Breast Implant Revision for medical or aesthetical reasons – some patients want or need breast implant revision surgery without changing the size of their breast implants. The reason in such a case may be a rupture in the breast implant or its deformation. For example, double-bubble deformity is one of the most common problems in breast augmentation. It occurs when a breast implant is placed lower than the old inframammary crease.

Sometimes also the excessive scar tissue around breast implants is removed in order to make breasts softer. It can be also combined with a breast lift procedure.

Recovery

The length of the breast implant revision recovery depends on the type of surgery performed. As it is a case with the first breast augmentation, the surgery may result in bruising and swelling, which should recede within the first 3 weeks. However, if the breast implants are removed entirely, the recovery is usually shorter, with minimal discomfort. 

Generally, breast implant revision specialists dissuade from strenuous physical activities in this period. You may need to wear a compression garment in order to keep swelling at bay. Additionally, pain after this breast augmentation surgery should be bearable with medicines prescribed by your doctor.

Risks

While many breast implant revisions finish with success, still complications rarely occur. In some cases, breast implant revision surgery may lead to: 

  • Infection
  • Excessive scar tissue
  • Breast Deformation
  • Bleeding
  • Poor healing of incisions
  • Anesthesia risks
  • Fluid accumulation (seroma)
  • Asymmetry

However, keep in mind that such events are unlikely to happen as a result of breast implant revision surgery.

Success Rates

While there is no exact data available, breast implant revision specialists agree that the success rate of this type of surgery is quite high, somewhere above 90%.

What Is a Breast Implant Revision?
Breast implant revision surgery is a procedureduring which doctors replace old breast implants with new ones. It can lead to breast reduction, breast increase or leave the same size of implants and only fix the problem occurred after the initial operation. 

What Is Better: Breast Implant Revision or Breast Implant Removal?
They are two different medical procedures. It depends on what you want – if you want to resign totally from breast implants, breast implant removal without a replacement could be a good option for you. Breast implant revision with breast reduction may be an option for patients who want smallerbreasts but still enhanced according to the pre-implant situation. 

Which Is Better: Saline Breast Implants or Silicone Breast Implants?
It is again up to you and your surgeon’s decision, both saline implants, and silicone breast implants can give splendid results in the hands of an experienced and skilled breast implant surgeon.
