Flymedi- Abud Alielah

I found flymedi based on a recommendation by a friend of the family, I was given Abud contact with high recommendation of his service and I was not disappointed at all ! From day one Abud was very helpful and professional. Abud found for me the suitable medical center and the perfect surgeon! He was always available day and night and on weekends as well and very patient with my unlimited questions and inquiries :) and very clear with provided information. After agreeing on the price, place, doctor and dates of the surgery, Abud took care of and planned everything from the day of arrival until the departure, including the hotel, driver, dates of surgery, consultations and more. I am very satisfied, everything was great 👍🏻 I would definitely use his services again I definitely recommend ✅ ✅ ✅

Never expected such a great hospitality…

Never expected such a great hospitality from Flymedi as a foreigner. From the time I landed in Turkey to the time I come back in my country I was treated as a friend. Thank you Yasmin for guiding me all the way. As you promised, I was not placed on the wait list.

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.

Recommended For Slim Lipo

Slim Lipo is the perfect choice for patients who have excess fat and who want to undergo liposuction surgery but do not want to have visible scars after surgery. Additionally, as with conventional liposuction procedure, Slim Lipo can be used as a part of a fat transfer or breast augmentation procedure, with liquefied fat tissue to enhance the appearance.

Not Recommended For Slim Lipo

Slim Lipo seems to be a good choice for you if you want to undergo liposuction surgery, but are afraid of surgery and possible scars. Laser fat removal guarantees you less visible marks of operation as well as improved liposuction recovery.

Overview

Slim Lipo’s name comes from liposuction surgery. However, it is far from a traditional liposuction procedure. The main difference between these two fat removal surgeries is in tools used. While in traditional liposuction fat tissue is directly removed with a tube inserted through a quite big incision, Slim Lipo allows for much smaller tube and incisions, since fat is first liquefied with a laser. The "Slim" in Slim Lipo stands for “Selective Laser Induced Melting” referring its wavelengths result in efficient fat "melting", skin tightening and smoothing. Slim Lipo is a minimally invasive procedure developed to be used for body sculpting.

For this reason, Slim Lipo is a quite revolutionary technique, minimalizing scarring, and length of liposuction surgery.

Preparation

The first step in the preparation of Slim Lipo will be a comprehensive consultation with the doctor. It is important to report all medical conditions and medications taken. You will need to stop using birth control pills two weeks before the operation, as it may cause blood clots to form. Likewise, all blood thinners, such as aspirin, should be discontinued for seven days prior to laser fat removal surgery. Finally, quitting smoking is a healthy choice for some time before and after Slim Lipo. By quitting, you increase your chances of proper liposuction recovery.

How It Is Performed

The Slim Lipo procedure is generally performed under local anesthesia. Once the anesthetic has been applied, the surgeon creates small incisions for being able to insert the laser and fat suctioning device. Then the device is inserted through the incisions and liquifying fatty tissue via wavelengths. The surgeon gently manipulates the device to remove excess fat and contour the treatment area.

 

Unlike Smart Lipo, Slim Lipo does not cause damage to other body cells and burns. After fat removal, the excessive tissue may be used in a fat transfer or other cosmetic surgery such as breast augmentation. 

Recovery

Recovery from Slim Lipo is much shorter and less painful than in the post-operative period of conventional liposuction. This is due to the size of the incisions made during the procedure - they are smaller in the case of Slim Lipo than traditional treatments. To fully recover, you are usually asked to rest for three days and then return to work. 

However, some specialists advise that during the first two weeks of Slim Lipo recovery you should wear a compression garment to achieve the better and quicker result. Around one-two weeks after your laser fat removal procedure, you can start thinking about sports.

Risks

Although Slim Lipo is relatively safer and less invasive than conventional liposuction surgery, there are risks of excessive bleeding, bruising, and swelling, as in almost any procedure. Besides necrosis, there is also the possibility of a small infection. If you experience strong pain or changes in your body such as discoloration etc. you should contact the specialist who conducted your Slim Lipo.

Side Effects

Right after Slim Lipo procedure is performed, patients may experience some swelling, bruising,irregular skin pigmentation, or infection. However, in the case of Slim Lipo, these signs are milder and pass faster.

Success Rates

Slim Lipo is thought to be a generally successful procedure, with its success rates outperforming these of normal liposuction surgery. As an answer to the question of “does slim lipo work?”, it is claimed that this procedure achieves success in more than 90% according to patients' reviews.

Before And After

After Slim Lipo, patients enjoy their enhanced appearance; they feel very fit and pleasant. If you are considering liposuction, Slim Lipo allows you to avoid visible scars and shorten your recovery time.

What is the Difference Between Slim Lipo and Smart Lipo? 
Slim Lipo and Smart Lipo are two very similar procedures. The main difference between them is the wavelength of the laser used during operations. Smart Lipo may take less time, but there is more risk of complications and side effects than Slim Lipo. Slim Lipo, with its laser specifically calibrated to liquefy fat and not burn other tissues, is a safer alternative. 

What are the Advantages of Slim Lipo over Normal Liposuction?
Slim Lipo allows you to avoid visible and bigger scars and longer and usually more painful recovery period, compared to traditional liposuction surgery. 

How Quick is Slim Lipo Recovery?
Slim Lipo recovery is very quick. 1 to 3 days after the procedure, patients are able to come back to their work or daily activities, while they need to wait with doing sports or other strenuous activities for around 1 to 2 weeks.
