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.

Great experience using Flymedi to find the perfect surgeon and operation for me. Abud answered all my questions and helped so much!

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.

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.

Preparation

If the patients smoke, they should consider quitting before and after the surgery, since smoking can delay the healing of the tissues. Blood thinners such as Aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs should be avoided on the week before the male breast reduction with Slim Lipo procedure. 

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.
