Made my trip overseas so much easier!

Yasmin was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! She told me how to get a travel visa and luckily warned me of any travel restrictions that were going on! I had to rebook my trip twice due to covid & restrictions and Yasmin handled everything on the hospitals end. One of the times I had to rebook it was because my layover was in london and Turkey banned all incoming travel from the UK. The airline never notified me so if it wasn't for Yasmin warning me I would have gotten on the plane and been stuck in london! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Yasmin made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

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.

Men who have one or more of gynecomastia symptoms and have a good overall health are the best candidates for male breast reduction with Slim Lipo procedure. For undergoing this procedure, breast development needs to be stabilized.

Not Recommended For Male Breast Reduction with Slim Lipo

If you are bothered by the feeling that your breasts are too large and also you are physically healthy and of relatively normal weight, you can be a candidate for male breast reduction with Slim Lipo procedure.

Overview

Gynecomastia is a condition leads to enlarged breasts or swelling of the breast tissue in boys or men and it is treatable. Pubertal gynecomastia usually resolves by itself, but the condition continues to adulthood up to 20 percent of individuals. This condition caused by an imbalance of the hormones of estrogen and testosterone. There are two types of male breast reduction procedure. For a small degree of breast growth in men, surgeons prefer to use a little liposuction. In such cases, there will be little scarring and recovery period is shorter. However, a larger, more fibrous breasts needs an open procedure called gynecomastia surgery or male breast reduction. During this procedure, surgeons cut around the areola, the colored skin around the nipple and it leads to visible scars so the healing process is getting longer. 

Nowadays, there is another effective procedure used for gynecomastia treatment called Slim Lipo or laser-assisted liposuction. Male breast reduction with Slim Lipo has the advantages of both no scars, in other words, shorter recovery time and bigger changes in the breast size.

How It Is Performed

Male breast reduction with Slim Lipo works on the same principle as other laser assisted liposuction methods. It can be performed in the doctor’s office under local anesthesia. In this technique, two different wavelengths (924 nm and 975 nm) are used in the same device to liquify the fat by gently heating the skin and to tighten the skin. Of these wavelengths, 924 targets fat cells and 975 targets water. The wavelength 924 is directed into the desired fat layer. The targeted fat cells in the treated area are liquefied by fine adjustments. The liquefied fat cells are sucked through a thin cannula and vacuum and collected in an empty tube. 

Recovery

After the male breast reduction with Slim Lipo procedure, most patients immediately feel ready to return to their normal routines within couple of days. Exercises should be limited for at least a week or two after surgery. Results are easily visible after treatment, however the final outcomes are typically seen a few months after surgery, once all swelling has reduced.
