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 Calf Implants

Calf augmentation through calf implants surgery is recommended for a wide range of individuals, including bodybuilders, patients who suffered trauma or injury to their lower legs or patients have skinny legs or generally dissatisfied with the look of their calves.

Not Recommended For Calf Implants

Heavy smokers or heavy drinkers who are unwilling to quit are not good candidates for calf augmentation through calf implants surgery, as in any surgical procedure. Smoking and heavy drinking can have a negative effect and create dangerous outcomes on the body's healing process, thus on the results of the system itself. Other contraindications include patients suffering from morbid obesity, heart disease, lung disease or diabetes.

Discharge From Hospital

1 night stay in the hospital is required

Duration Of Operation

1 to 2 hours

Overview

Calf augmentation surgery is a cosmetic procedure which uses calf implants in order to enhance the lower portion of a patient’s legs. Patients who have a smaller lower leg due to an injury, disease or both. The calf implants procedure is a great way to minimize the discomfort of deformity and to provide the patient with more aesthetically pleasing lower legs. 

Calf implants surgery is considered by some to be reconstructive surgery, although the leg’s functions are not improved or restored in any way – the only goal of this procedure is to provide the lower legs with a normal looking appearance.

 

Although calf augmentation surgery is one of the least popular procedures among plastic surgeons, it is also one of the most satisfying procedures among patients. It is particularly satisfying if performed by experienced surgeons. Patients may consider calf implants options abroad, to find cost-effective treatment packages as well as skilled and experienced surgeons in countries such as Turkey. Mainly when the priceadvantage is achieved apart from the success of the surgery, patients can quickly answer yes to the question 'Is it worth it?'

Preparation

While preparing the calf implants surgery, patients need to avoid smoking at least a month before the procedure. Omega 3 capsules, anti-inflammatory medicines, blood thinners such as aspirin, and herbal teas also need to be avoided for at least 2 weeks before the procedure is set to begin.

How It Is Performed

Calf implants surgery is quite similar to any implant surgery. Patients and surgeons decided about having two implants in one leg or just one implant in each before the surgery. The patient’s legs are measured and necessary medical tests have been applied. Based on the measurements, implants are ordered and sterilized in order to insert during the surgery. 

Calf augmentation through calf implants surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, but in some cases, intravenous sedation can also be used. Once the anesthesia kicks in, calf implants surgeons create small incisions generally in the creases behind the knee. A special type of instrument is used at this stage, to create a pocket between the fascia and the muscle tissue underneath. The pocket must be big enough for the implant to fit in but small enough so the implant will be secured. The surgeon will then check the patient’s legs, with the implants in place. If the desired position and result is achieved, the incisions are stitched back together. If not, the surgeon can make little adjustments. The area is then wrapped in bandages and a compression garment is applied. Sometimes drains can be placed as well, in order to facilitate healing and the removal of unwanted fluids from the surgery area.

Recovery

During the first 12 hours of the calf implants recovery period, the patient's legs must be kept in an elevated position. Surgeons will give the compression bandages that patients will need to keep on for two weeks post-surgery, according to the ISAPS (The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery). During the second week of the calf implants recovery period, patients can return to minimum physical activity and work (if the job requires minimum effort). 

 

Heavy lifting, standing and/or walking for long periods need to be avoided for at least 3 weeks after the calf implants surgery. Most patients take 3 weeks off work for this procedure to get a comfortable recovery period. Patients also need to follow the doctor's instructions carefully. The legs need to be massaged daily in order to avoid capsular contracture. 

Risks

Calf implants surgery risks and complications can include: 

● Seroma 
● Capsular contracture 
● Infection of the operation area 
● Unfavorable scarring 
● Excessive bleeding

Success Rates

Calf implant surgery reviews set the average success rate at 97,2%.

Before And After

After around two weeks, patients will notice less bruising and swelling and feel their skin begin to adjust to the implants. The results of this procedure are visible immediately, but it will take some time for the legs to heal and reach their final form and contour.

Faq

Can Calf Implants Surgery Be Combined with Another Procedure?
Yes, liposuction, thigh lift, and cellulite treatment are popular choices to be combined with calf implants. 

When Can I Resume Sports Or Exercise?
Patients can engage in any sports 8 weeks after the calf implants surgery, waiting patiently and carefully is of great importance during recovery.


Will There Be Scars?
Yes, there will be scars, but they will be hidden in line with the natural creases of the leg area, so they won’t be visible.
