The first time I had some doubts about the intervențion , Due to the fact that the hair regenerates periodic,what I can say is that the result of a hair transplant is 100% successful. This revival comes after a period of 9 months waiting to see the result of the intervention. I recommend Flymedi and of course I recommend the person who was near me during the intervention Mr Mustafa. Mr. Mustafa is a person I rarely met. I can say that everything related to professionalism is on his side. I recommend to all those who want to have professional interventions, to have the highest confidence in Flymedi. Thank you Flymedi !

I came across FlyMedi online while looking for medical tourism options for septorhinoplasty in Turkey. I was contacted by FlyMedi's Nadia via email within hours of submitting for more information on their website. Nadia made herself available 24/7 via email and WhatsApp, even as I traveled across multiple time zones. Nadia provided multiple options in multiple locations with pros and cons and for each and stayed in touch throughout the process. I already recommended FlyMedi and specifically Nadia to friends and family considering Turkey for any medical tourism they may be considering. Thank you Nadia!

I'd been researching the procedure for a while and the cost in Australia was significantly higher than in Turkey. I came across the Flymedi website and within hours of submitting an enquiry, Nadia had reached out. She provided multiple quotes with different options, background on the doctors and hospitals. Nadia was available 24/7 and really helped me through everything from start to finish. Great business idea, exceptional staff and great customer service

I am really happy that I have planned my operation through Flymedi. Robin took great care of me and was always there for me and made everything possible. I had a breast lift and tummy tuck and had liposuction by Dr. Asli Datli. MedicalPark in Istanbul. she is a super doctor, the results has become very nice and was also there well cared for. Nurse Yeliz is adorable and has always been by my side. She was also always available and answered all my questions. I have felt very well, thanks again to all I am very satisfied.

Not Recommended For Laparotomy

Laparotomy surgery of any kind may not be really suitable for people who are allergic to general anaesthesia. Doctors check it before every laparotomy procedure in order to get sure that they do not put the patient at high risk.

Overview

Laparotomy surgery is a medical procedure during which doctors perform a large abdominal cut in order to gain access to patient’s internal organs. Laparotomy procedure was once a very common diagnostic method. However, in the advent of modern diagnostic procedures such as laparoscopy, the importance and prevalence of laparotomy surgery in diagnostics has dwindled.

Still, it doesn’t mean that laparotomy incision stopped to be popular. It is performed as part of other surgeries, including abdominal hysterectomy, stomach, liver, bowel surgeries and others. It also is used as a diagnostic tool from time to time.

Currently, we can divide laparotomy procedures into 3 major types:

• Exploratory laparotomy – diagnostic laparotomy, performed in search of medical issues impossible to detect with other methods or invisible due to the lack of proper equipment

• Emergency laparotomy – doctors often decide to perform laparotomy for abdominal pain. They hope to quickly find sources of abdominal pain and deal with them

• Laparotomy procedure as a part of bigger surgery – laparotomy may be the first step in a medical procedure such as operation on stomach, bowels or other internal organs


Laparotomy vs Laparoscopy

Laparotomy constantly loses its position as a diagnostic tool and operation method to laparoscopy procedure. It is so primarily because of laparoscopy recovery time being shorter than laparotomy recovery time. Additionally, laparoscopic surgery involves 3 or more small cuts, while laparotomy incision creates a one, long laparotomy scar.

Still, some diseases and medical conditions cannot be solved through laparoscopic surgery and old school laparotomy surgery becomes necessary. Additionally, if laparoscopy procedure goes wrong and leads to complications, doctors often decide to continue the surgery through a laparotomy incision.

Preparation

If laparotomy is performed as an emergency laparotomy or exploratory laparotomy, often there is not enough time to properly prepare. However, if it is a part of a larger medical procedure, patient’s doctors will inform about a specific type of preparation one needs to undergo.

How It Is Performed

Laparotomy incision is performed under general anaesthesia. Abdominal laparotomy involves a quite large laparotomy incision, which allows doctors to see the inside of one’s abdomen and search for sources of medical issues and, having found them, start the treatment.

After the laparotomy surgery is finished, doctors clean the abdominal cavity and stitch the laparotomy incision.

Recovery

Laparotomy recovery time is generally longer than laparoscopy recovery time. However, laparotomy recovery is also dependent on the type of laparotomy (exploratory laparotomy, emergency laparotomy, as a part of other surgery). In general, total laparotomy recovery time may take weeks or even months, not to mention the issue of laparotomy scar.

ScarsAfterSurgery

Laparotomy incision inevitably leads to the laparotomy scar. Still, laparotomy procedure is not performed for cosmetic reasons and the possibility of saving somebody’s life or health is more important than the appearance of laparotomy scar.

Risks

Laparotomy surgery may lead to some laparotomy complications, including infection, bleeding, damage to internal organs. Among laparotomy complications are also hernias and long-term pain. However, laparotomy procedure may also be performed as a response to laparoscopy complications.

Success Rates

The success rates of laparotomy surgery depend primarily on the type of surgery and treated disease. For this reason, it is hard to calculate a general success rate for laparotomy of any kind, be it exploratory laparotomy, emergency laparotomy or laparotomy procedure as one of the stages of other surgery.

Faq

What Is Laparotomy Surgery?

Laparotomy surgery is an abdominal incision performed in order to examine the patient with unknown sources of pain (exploratory laparotomy union help in an urgent medical issue (emergency laparotomy) or as a part of a larger surgery.


How Long Is the Laparotomy Recovery Time?

Laparotomy recovery time depends on the type of surgery performed but it is usually longer than analogic laparoscopic surgery.


Is There a Way to Avoid Laparotomy Scar?

Laparotomy scar is an inseparable part of laparotomy surgery. Laparotomy procedure is performed as a solution to serious medical issues and it is usually more important than possible scarring.
