Abud exceeded all my expectations

Abud exceeded all my expectations for Flymedi. He was readily available to answer my questions and put my mind at ease. I was never made to feel like I asked too many questions or rushed at all, he spoke to me as if he were a long time friend. He was also very clear about everything I am going to expect on my trip, from accommodations to the procedure, down to the weather and beautiful things to see in Turkey. Abud makes things so simple and takes the stress away from traveling. I could not and most likely would not have done this without Abud and his help!

First time plastic surgery experience with FlyMedi

I contacted Flymedi about getting a breast augmentation done and I was contacted by Abud shortly thereafter who was helped me through the initial planning phase so well. Since I am coming all the way from Africa and have never traveled alone, Abud organized a video call with the surgeon to go over some of the questions I had as well as my expectations of the surgery. I am very pleased with the service so far and already feel safe about traveling to Istanbul for my surgery

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

Recommended For Cheek Implants

Cheek implants surgery, also known as cheek augmentation, is recommended for any individuals dissatisfied with the look or shape of their cheeks. Individuals with flat cheeks, with traumatic facial injuries or birth defects usually prefer this surgery. 

Not Recommended For Cheek Implants

Cheek augmentation is not recommended for patients with unusual round faces. Patients with very little soft tissue in the cheek should not have this procedure, as implants may become apparent. Persons suffering from any type of infection in the body, especially in the mouth and sinus, should wait before undergoing cheek implants surgery. Certain patients with serious underlying health conditions such as diabetes or heart problems may not be good candidates for cheek augmentation surgery.

Overview

Cheek implants surgery, also known as cheek augmentation, is a plastic surgery procedure used to make fuller, change or enhance a person’s cheeks in order to provide harmony in the facial proportions. 

Cheek augmentation or cheek implants techniques include: 
● Cheek implants – the plastic surgeon uses solid silicone implants in this procedure to enhance the patient’s face 
● Dermal fillers, also known as cheek fillers – the surgeon can also use dermal fillers, a material based on hyaluronic acid, to gradually improve the appearance of the patient’s cheeks 
● Autologous fat transfer for cheek augmentation – in this particular procedure, surgeons can inject the patient's fat into the cheeks 
● Cheek augmentation through osteotomy – surgeons can change the zygomatic bone of the cheek, commonly known as the cheekbone in order to achieve the desired effect. 

There are three different types of cheek implants: 
● Malar – This is the most common type of cheek implant used in this field. These implants are placed directly on the cheekbone and provide a more pleasing contour in the cheek area. 
● Submalar – Submalar cheek implants usually used to enhance the appearance of the midface. 
● Combined – As the name suggests, these implants can enhance the cheekbones as well as the midface.

 

Cheek implants surgery is a safe procedure and can be combined with a facelift procedure, neck lift, rhinoplasty but the most common choice is chin implant surgery.Cheek implants surgery is also an increasingly popular surgical procedure, and abroad options are often preferred considering the price advantage. For example, in the countries well-experienced in the field of medical tourism such as Turkey, patients can find more affordable check implants surgery options compared to the US or most European countries.

Preparation

Patients need to avoid blood thinners such as aspirin, oral herbal supplements, alcohol, and smoking for at least 2 weeks before the cheek implants surgery.Patients may be advised to take a particular medication or change the dose of an existing medication while preparing the surgery. 

How It Is Performed

Cheek implants surgery is done under sedation or general anesthesia. Once the anesthesia applies, the cheek implants surgeon creates the incision to insert the implants. If the procedure is combined with eyelid lift surgery, brow lift, facelift or rhinoplasty, the implants can also be inserted through the incisions already made for these procedures. 

If the cheek implants procedure is performed stand-alone, incisions can be created either through the lower eyelids or in the mouth, according to the surgeon’s decision. The surgeon will then create “pockets” in the cheek tissue and proceed to place the implants carefully. Once the desired position is achieved, stitches are set to close the incision site. 

As an alternative treatment, dermal fillers can be used instead of implants. The dermal fillers allow the surgeon to gradually enhance the cheek area until the desired result is achieved. It’s important to note that dermal fillers are not a permanent solution and another intervention will be necessary in around 6 to 12 months after the initial surgery.

Recovery

The cheek implants recovery period lasts around 3 weeks. Most patients return to work in around a week after the procedure. A facial compression garment will be advised and provided to patients in order to speed up the healing process, it needs to be worn for 3 days after the cheek implants surgery.

Risks

Cheek implants surgery risks and complications can include: 

● Cheek implants surgery revision 
● Implant displacement 
● Allergic reaction to anesthesia 
● Asymmetry of the cheeks 
● Infection 
● Scarring 

●Hematoma

●Fatty cysts

Risks and complications for cheek augmentation with dermal fillers are different than those of cheek implants surgery

Side Effects

Cheek implants surgery side effects can include: 

● Swelling 
● Bruising 

●Facial edema
● Sore cheeks 
Pain

Success Rates

Cheeks implants surgery reviews set the average success rate at 92%. The success rate for dermal fillers is almost the same with 89%, but this one is not a permanent solution.

Before And After

With either technique, patients will enjoy fuller cheeks and more appealing facial proportions.If it is necessary to answer the question of “can cheek implants be removed?”, the answer is yes: If you will not feel good with your cheek implants anymore, you can have another surgery to be removed them.

Faq

Can Cheek Implant Surgery Be Combined with Other Procedures? 
Yes, cheek implants procedure can be combined with rhinoplasty, neck lift, brow lift, or chin implants in order to achieve a pleasing facial proportion. 

Cheek Implants Vs. Fillers – What Is the Difference? 
Cheek implants are one of the permanent cheek augmentation techniques. Dermal fillers are also preferable and satisfying procedure and provide the same result, but it only lasts around 6 months. 

How Much Time Do I Need Off Work?
The exact time needed for work off may vary depending on the surgical outcome and patients themselves but it is usually needed just a week off work for cheek implants surgery.
