(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 Laparoscopic Appendectomy

A patient with appendicitis may experience pain in the abdomen region, loss in the appetite, diarrhea, fever, frequent and painful urination, nausea, and so on. There might be a different kind of reasons for appendicitis to occur such as cancer, infections, or stool remaining in intestines.However, why in some people these factors become the causes of appendicitis and others do not suffer from it remains largely unknown. It is estimated that as much as 5% of the population will suffer from appendicitis during their lifetime.

Not Recommended For Laparoscopic Appendectomy

For some situations, clinicians choose antibiotics for the treatment of appendicitis. Though, patients usually need emergency appendectomy to be performed so as not to have an internal infection and ruptured appendix.Many of them will be treated with laparoscopic appendectomy procedure due to its being a superior form of appendix removal. Furthermore, if the appendix was ruptured because of acute appendicitis, surgeons would choose to perform open appendectomy surgery over laparoscopic appendectomy.

Overview

Laparoscopic appendectomy surgeryis a medical procedure performed for removing the appendix. The infected appendix is called appendicitis, and when a patient experiences appendicitis, appendectomy is recommended. Appendicitis is a very common medical problem. Appendicitis may occur unexpectedly, or it may progress in time. Before the laparoscopic appendectomy surgery was developed, appendectomy surgery was being performed as open surgery. With the option of laparoscopic appendectomy procedure, numerous surgeons decided to perform laparoscopic appendectomy surgery because of its advantages like; short recovery period and fewer risks related to appendicitis treatment.

Preparation

Since many appendectomies are performed on an emergency basis by the surgeons, there is usually no time for the preparation. Yet, some people experience symptoms of appendicitis which develop in time; therefore, they have enough time for the preparations. It is recommended to stop taking any medication which might involve blood-thinning qualities such as aspirin. It is also advised to fast before the laparoscopic appendectomy procedure for a couple of hours. 

How It Is Performed

Laparoscopic appendectomy procedure is fairly an easy one. Since it is laparoscopic surgery, rather than making a single big cut surgeon make several small cuts to perform the operation. Laparoscopic surgery involves a laparoscope, which is a medical instrument with a light and a camera on it. There are also other different medical tools used to perform laparoscopic surgery. During the laparoscopic appendectomy operation, surgeons observe the location of appendectomy surgery on the screen and continue to cut out the appendix and close its connection to intestines.

Recovery

The laparoscopic appendectomy recovery period is shorter than an open appendectomy recovery period. People who had laparoscopic appendectomy surgery can go back to work 1-3 weeks after the operation. There might be a necessity of taking antibiotics or painkillers for the phase of recovery from the laparoscopic appendectomy.The total appendix surgery recovery time is estimated at 4-6 weeks.

Side Effects

It is possible for people to live without the appendix without any problem. Therefore, patients experience no side effects.

Success Rates

For the laparoscopic appendectomy cases without any complications success rate is assessed as 94%. Also, the success rate of laparoscopic appendectomy with appendicitis causing separation of the appendix was estimated as 90%.
