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.

Overview

Excessive sweating or Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition caused excessive, uncontrollable sweating. Normal sweating has lots of benefit for our bodies. It basically helps to cool the body and it prevents us from overheating. However, people who have hyperhidrosis, sweat even when the body does not need this function at all. Most of the people who have hyperhidrosis sweat from one or two areas of the body. The most often excessive sweating areas are palms, feet, underarms, faceor head.

 

As it is a difficult condition, people always look for a successful excessive sweating treatment. There are medical treatments, as well as natural remedies for getting rid of Hyperhidrosis. The most common medical extreme sweating treatments are:

  • Antiperspirants— The first excessive sweating treatment the dermatologists use for this condition.
  • Iontophoresis—A device is passed through the ionized water to treat the excessive sweating of hands and feet.
  • Botox injections—Botulinum toxin A (Botox) is injected to release of a chemical that signals the sweatglands to activate.
  • Prescription medicine—These medications inhibit the transmission of parasympathetic nerve impulses
  • Surgery—Surgeons can use one of those surgical excessive sweating treatment techniques; 
  • Excision
  • Liposuction
  • Curettage
  • Laser surgery 

Preparation

Preparations for excessive sweating treatment will vary depending on the procedure to be applied. If you have just started treatment, you will be offered methods of excessive sweating that require less preparation before choosing surgery if none of them is satisfied. In surgery, doctors will tell you what to avoid before surgery. For example, tobacco and tobacco products, blood thinners, or some of the herbal supplements should not be used in the preparation stage of excessive sweating treatment.

How It Is Performed

Although there is increased awareness with the use of botulinum toxin injections as a non-surgical treatment of hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating, the results are generally not durable beyond 14 months. However, ETS (endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy) is a minimally invasive and permanent technique that has increased the interest in excessive sweating treatment. ETS is generally performed under general anesthesia and during the surgery, a portion of the sympathetic nerve trunk in the thoracic region is destroyed to treat excessive sweating in certain parts of the body (usually in the palms or face). Surgeons use a miniature camera to insert into the chest under the armpit and then they cut or otherwise destroy the nerve paths associated with the overactive sweat glands. This procedure usually has successful outcomes and is very useful to treat excessive sweating.

Recovery

Initial or non-invasive excessive sweating treatment options do not require any recovery period, but surgery does. Recovery is usually a couple of days, although patients may feel pain and discomfort for up to a week and need to limit their activity during that time. If the surgery has not been sufficient enough, it is also possible to perform secondary surgery or to use Botox or antiperspirants to control sweating from remaining sweat glands.

Risks

Some of the most common risks and complications of excessive sweating treatments are:

 

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Soreness
  • Damaging the nerves
  • Inability to tolerate heat
  • Abnormal heartbeat

Side Effects

There are mild to severe side effects can occur during or after the excessive sweating treatment such as: 

  • Loss of feeling in the underarm
  • Scarring
  • Bruising
  • Compensatory sweating
  • Low blood pressure
  • Muscle weakness (Botox injections)

Success Rates

Excessive sweating treatment options have high satisfaction rates from initial drug treatments to surgery. Experienced doctors play a big role in increasing the likelihood of satisfaction by offering the most appropriate treatment option depending on the patient's complaint and general condition.

Before And After

2 to 3% of Americans suffer from excessive sweating of their armpits, feet, palms or faces. Armpit problems usually begin in adolescence, while palms and floor sweating usually starts around the age of 13. If left untreated, these problems may persist throughout life and have an impact on quality of life. After excessive sweating treatment options, patients feel more comfortable and confident because they get rid of the problem that affects their lives so much.

Faq

What causes excessive sweating?

It is not accepted yet, but hyperhidrosis seems to stem from a minor malfunction in the nervous system. There's also some evidence that genetic susceptibility is another reason to have excessive sweating.

 

Is Excessive Sweating Treatment Painful?

No, non-invasive treatments have not any potential to create pain and patients do not feel anything during the surgery. If any discomfort such as post-operative pain is occur, doctors may prescribe medicines to release the pain. 

 

Are there any natural remedies for excessive sweating?

Natural remedies to treat excessive sweating include herbal substances such as sage tea, chamomile or valerian root. Acupuncture, biofeedback, hypnosis, and relaxation techniques have also discussed as potential treatments. Recently it is believed that eating a completely gluten-free diet can cause excessive sweating to stop. There is little research to recommend such natural remedies and they have not proven yet, so it would be better to visit a dermatologist to start an excessive sweating treatment by his or her guidance.
