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 Mini Tummy Tuck

Mini tummy tuck procedure can benefit patients who have a small amount of excess skin and fat or protruding of the lower abdomen.

Not Recommended For Mini Tummy Tuck

If you have a small amount of excess skin and fat below the belly button and do not need a full abdominoplasty procedure, if your general health is also suitable for undergoing a surgery, you may be an ideal candidate for mini tummy tuck surgery. The final decision will be made by your surgeon. 

Overview

Tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, can be a great option in case of excess sagging of the skin and loose muscle tissue in the abdominal area that is resistant to both diet and exercise.

Full tummy tuck is usually used to rejuvenate the entire abdominal area, both above and below the belly button. A tummy tuck is considered a less extensive variation of full abdominoplasty and is typically used in cases where the abdominal muscles and the minimum amount of excess skin are limited to the lower abdominal region under the belly button.

Preparation

There are several things that patients are required to do during the preparation stage of mini tummy tuck procedure include stop smoking as well as avoiding of drugs and herbal supplements that could increase bleeding such as anti-inflammatory medicines, fish oil and aspirin.

How It Is Performed

This surgery can be performed by sedation under general, epidural or local anesthesia according to the preference of surgeon and patient. Surgeons apply a small incision above the pubic area and usually some liposuction is also performed. Abdominal fat is absorbed, excess supra-pubic skin is removed, and in case of muscle laxity, the medial part of the abdominal skin is also removed. Finally, the skin is sutured with umbilicus preserved.

Recovery

As a result of the more limited treatment area, typically a smaller incision is used for a mini tummy tuck, and the recovery time is usually slightly shorter and the scar is less than the full one. 

Risks

Risks and complications related with the mini tummy tuck include:

  • Hematomas (blood collections) 
  • Infections
  • Blood clots (venous thromboembolism)
  • Lung-related problems

Side Effects

Possible side effects of mini tummy tuck may include:

  • Infection
  • Bruising
  • Delayed healing of the wound
  • Numbness

Success Rates

Mini tummy tuck procedure creates so many satisfied and happy patients which can easily be seen in the patients’ ratings of around 96% satisfaction.

Before And After

Mini tummy tuck or mini abdominoplasty is performed to remove excess skin and tissue from the area between the belly button and pubic area, to create a smoother, firmer abdominal profile. As it can be seen in before and after photos and read in the patients’ reviews on the websites, the outcomes of this procedure are quite effective and satisfying.

Faq

What is Mini Tummy Tuck?

A mini tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery procedure which can give the patients' lower abdomen a smoother look with less scarring than a full tummy tuck.

Is Mini Tummy Tuck Painful?

Mini tummy tuck procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia, although it can be performed under local anesthesia, as well. In either case, patients do not experience any pain or discomfort during the procedure. If pain is felt during the recovery period, painkillers prescribed by the doctor will be effective enough.

What Is the Difference Between Mini Tummy Tuck Vs Full Tummy Tuck?

Full tummy tuck is usually used to rejuvenate the entire abdominal area, both above and below the belly button. A tummy tuck is considered a less extensive variation of full abdominoplasty and is typically used in cases where the abdominal muscles and the minimum amount of excess skin are limited to the lower abdominal region under the belly button.
