(Chin and neck liposuction) great experience with Abud

I found flymedi while I was looking for a doctor in Istanbul to do a chin and neck liposuction. Abud from Flymedi contacted me and he was great from the beginning until even after I went back home, he took care of everything and was always available, definitely the right person for this experience! My doctor (Dr Ozge Ergun) was also great, I'm very satisfied and I can only recommend Flymedi, the best place to find your treatment!

5* service

From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

Great Service

After a long research for hair transplant, I came across Flymedi. I had several reasons to get this service from them such as getting rid of the bureaucratic process, handling accommodation issues, personal assistant, etc. I felt comfortable once it is done by Flymedi as full of customer-oriented style, I was just worried about the surgery which went well too! Thank you Flymedi team. Make sure that I will be letting people know your passion for helping patients who admit to have surgery done in Poland.

Full abdominoplasty, also known as full tummy tuck surgery, is a kind of complex cosmetic surgery performed in the abdomen area with the aim of making it look more firm, toned or thinner. There are many benefits of a full tummy tuck such as much flatter and smoother abdomen and reduced appearance of stretch marks.

Full tummy tuck surgery is popular among patients that had one or several pregnancies, or have excess sagging skin due to the aging process or a major weight loss. A complete abdominoplasty or full tummy tuck surgery often involves liposuction in order to improve the final results. 


Before opting for a full tummy tuck surgery or a complete abdominoplasty, it is recommended that patients inform themselves over the risks and complications of the procedure. Patients should have good general health, apply a healthy diet and stop smoking at least one month before and after the operation.

How It Is Performed

A full abdominoplasty or traditional tummy tuck surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, and it takes between two to five hours. 
The surgeon makes a horizontally-oriented incision in the area between the pubic hairline and belly button. A full tummy tuck surgery involves a second vertical incision in order to change the position of the navel and to create a more appealing result.The shape and length of the incisions will be determined by the amount of excess skin patients have. During the surgery, surgeons can tighten the muscles by pulling them closer together and stitching them to give a more toned look and to create a smaller waistline.This is the muscle repair stage of the surgery. Sometimes liposuction might be used to improve the results by removing the undesired fat tissue, and the excess skin is also removed.

After the full abdominoplasty is complete, the incisions are closed using surgical stitches and the full tummy tuck recovery period can begin


Depending on the scope of the procedure and the patient's condition, the average full tummy tuck surgery recovery may last from one to four weeks. During this process, patients should avoid heavy lifting and are advised to take at least a few weeks off from work. Patients should wear a compression garment that can reduce swelling and bruising. This garment helps the skin conform to the new body shape. Also, smoking should be avoided for several weeks after the procedure.


Possible full tummy tuck risks and complications include: 
• Bleeding 
• Anesthesia complications 
• Fat necrosis 
• Asymmetry 
• Pulmonary embolism

• Delayed healing
• Thrombosis 
• Infection 
• Possibility of revision surgery 
• Skin discoloration 
• Suture rupture 
• Fluid accumulation

• Visible Scars

Side Effects

A full abdominoplasty can have several side effects, including: 
• Swelling 
• Bruising 

• Soreness or tenderness
• Post-surgical tummy tuck scars 
• Temporary discomfort

• Low back pain

Success Rates

The procedure has a 95% success rate according to patients’ reviews

Before And After

If patients follow their doctor's instructions carefully, they will be more satisfied with the results. If patients adopt a healthy lifestyle and maintain their weight in a stable and healthy range, the results of the surgery may last for years.


The benefits of the full tummy tuck operation are: 
• Improved self-confidence

• Improved appearance and body proportion

• Tighter abdominal muscles

• Tight and flat abdominal skin


Full Tummy Tuck Vs. Mini Tummy Tuck
Complete abdominoplasty is more complex and involves two incisions and sutures while affecting a larger area of the abdomen. While a mini tummy tuck needs only a small incision, the skin shaped on the lower abdomen will be more limited in size.

Are There Any Alternatives to A Full Abdominoplasty Or Full Tummy Tuck?
Cosmetics can be used to tighten the skin but they do not remove the excess skin and they are not as effective as full tummy tuck surgery. Also, some non-surgical alternatives like coolsculpting, lasers, and thermage can be chosen but only for minor changes. 

What’s the Difference Between A Liposuction And Full Tummy Tuck?
With a full tummy tuck, both excess fat and skin are removed while with liposuction, only the excess fat is removed.
