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

Overview

Neck lift surgery, also known as platysmaplasty surgery, is a type of plastic surgery performed widely all around the world in order to improve the pleasant appearance of the neck region. 

Sometimes platysmaplasty surgery or neck lift surgery is used to remove excess tissue as well as tightening the skin and underlying muscle tissue in the region. Although non-surgical techniques are often used with products such as laser, tape, cream or botulinum toxin, the surgery offers a more permanent and long-lasting solution. Ultherapy, which is one of the non-surgical lifting procedures, is safe enough to be applied to almost any area of the face and neck. Surgeons may maximize the overall amount of skin firming patients receive and create more lifting by combining this procedure with a thread lift. Scarscould also be minimized in this way. 


Many people feel self-conscious about the appearance of their neck because it is obvious. Sagging excess skin and tissue around their necks can make them feel unattractive or undesirable.

What Can Lead To An Unattractive Neck? 

Being overweight, even by a few pounds, can lead to an unattractive neck. The neck area can be too fleshy or obtuse. On the other hand, losing excess weight can also cause excess sagging skin in the neck area. Some patients have a genetic predisposition for fatty tissue growth and accumulated in the jaw area. Aging is another factor that can lead to an unattractive neck, as the skin loses its elasticity, and it begins to sag in time.  


When platysmaplasty surgery or neck lift surgery is combined with the following procedures, more successful results can be achieved:

 

● Facelift - also known as rhytidectomy, can eliminate the appearance of aging and wrinkles in the face area

● Chin augmentation - weak jaw patients can have more aesthetic jaws with this procedure

● Brow lift - this procedure is performed to elevate the eyebrows in order to make the forehead skin appear smoother and younger

Preparation

Platysmaplasty surgery patients need to have realistic expectations from the procedure– this is the first preparation step for neck lift surgery. As with any surgery, patients need to stop smoking at least a month before and after the procedure. Herbal teas, herbal supplements, vitamins, anti-inflammatory drugs, and aspirin are forbidden at least 2 weeks before and after the procedure is performed.ed.

How It Is Performed

Platysmaplasty surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, making it practically painless. The procedure itself lasts around 2-3 hours. The surgeon will begin the operation by creating incisions under the ear and under the jaw. Subsequently, a portion of excess skin is removed. At this point, fat tissue and muscle tissue can also be removed. In order to achieve a better result, different neck lifting techniques can be applied to meet the needs of the patient. When the desired result is achieved, the surgeon closes the incision and the neck lift recovery time can begin.

Recovery

The average neck lift recovery period lasts around 2 weeks. During this time, patients are required to wear a special compression garment that facilitates the healing process and limits any potential scarring from the neck lift surgery. Patients usually return to work and their daily routines after approximately 2 weeks of platysmaplasty, but sporting activities should be avoided for at least 3 weeks. It is forbidden to smoke and drinks excess alcohol during the neck lift recovery period as the risk of postoperative complications may increase.

Risks

Neck lift surgery complications can include the following: 
 


  • Allergic reactions to anesthesia 
    Infection in the neck area 
    Hematomas 
    Nerve injury in the neck area 
    Scarring

Numbness, pain or poor wound healing are other neck lift surgery side effects. In around a week or two these post-op effects will pass, if it will not, patients should inform their surgeons. 

Success Rates

Neck lift surgery reviews set the average platysmaplasty surgery success rate at around 94%.

Before And After

Patients will be able to notice their neck lift surgery results in around a week. The effects of platysmaplasty surgery last between 5 and 10 years, but patients should pay attention to some precautions in their lifestyle to maintain their results.
