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 Single Breast Teardrop Implants

If there is any difference in breast size and the breasts are already fully developed, single breast teardrop implants may correct the problem. Candidates for this operation should not have any severe health condition to avoid undergoing surgery.

Not Recommended For Single Breast Teardrop Implants

If you are bothered that one of your breasts are too small or asymmetrical, if you are physically healthy, also if you aren't pregnant or breastfeeding, you are probably a right candidate for single breast teardrop implants procedure.

Overview

Teardrop breast implants have a more natural look than round implants. Because the bottom of the implant is fuller than the top of the breasts. As the name suggests, this type of implants gives the breasts a more tear-dropped shape which suits the natural shape of the breast. Women who want their breast to look very natural often choose this type. The fullness of the breast is not lost with teardrop implants, and it is suitable for more anatomical choices such as single breast implants. 

 

Women in some particular cases only need to have a single breast implants surgery, for example, after the single mastectomy surgery, and it presents a challenge that is matching the reconstructed breast to the other breast. Although the plastic surgeons may use a tissue flap procedure as opposed to an implant, single breast teardrop implants procedure also gives a good result in such cases. 

Preparation

Breast implant operations involve almost the same preparations, regardless of the type or number of implants. These are:

  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid taking blood thinners such as aspirin and herbal supplements
  • Avoid taking certain anti-inflammatory medicines
  • Inform your doctor about the medications you already use 

How It Is Performed

Single breast teardrop implants surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and takes between 30 and 60 minutes. After anesthesia, the surgeon cuts the skin at the base of the areola or under the chest, removes a pocket under the chest, and usually cuts the pectoralis muscle and places the implant. They then suture the cuts before dressing the breast.

Recovery

Single breast teardrop implants procedure recovery period lasts a few weeks after the surgery. Patients generally need to take a week or two off work. It may be recommended wearing a special bra 24 hours a day for up to three months following the surgery. Patients also need to avoid strenuous exercise for at least a month and keep their breast scar out of direct sunlight for about a year.

Risks

Single breast teardrop implants procedure may also have some risks and complications as in other surgical procedures, some of the most common risks are:

  • Rupture
  • Collapse
  • Herniation
  • Capsular contracture
  • Implant associated hematoma
  • Infection
  • Breast implant failure

Side Effects

Typical side effects of single breast teardrop implants surgery include:

  • Temporary pain
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • A feeling of discomfort and tightness in the breast

Success Rates

Breast augmentation surgery generally pleases women. Whatever the purpose, women with the desired breast shape and size feel better and are satisfied with the operation. Single breast teardrop implants surgeries have the same effect if performed by an experienced and skilled surgeon. The success rate of breast augmentation surgery is around 95% based on the feedback from the patients.

Before And After

If you need to change your healthy breast to achieve symmetry or balance surgically, it is not always easy to match an implant to the remaining natural breast. However, single breast teardrop implants are one of the most suitable choices to provide a balance between two breasts.

After the surgery, patients feel satisfied to have the same shaped and sized breasts and this creates comfort and self-esteem.

What is Single Breast Teardrop Implants?

Single breast teardrop implants procedure is effective for the patients whose single breast has been surgically removed for prevention or result of cancer, as well as for women with asymmetry between their breasts which means one breast is smaller than the other.

 

Is Single Breast Teardrop Implants Painful?

Since you will be under anesthesia during the surgery, you will not feel any pain or discomfort, and if you have pain during the recovery period, you can use medication to relieve it.

 

Are Single Breast Teardrop Implants Safe?

In the past, breast implants carried a greater risk of rupture and associated risks and complications. For example, when the breast implants rupture, gel material could leak into the surrounding tissue. After years of developments, breast implants are considered safe. To make sure, surgeons apply regular screenings to the implants for them to remain in the right place and haven’t ruptured.
