(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.

Overview

Endoscopy is a medical procedure that utilizes an instrument named endoscope so as to inspect the patient's internal organs without performing a surgery. Endoscopy is a broad name, below which numerous others, for instance, colonoscopy, gastroenterology, hysteroscopy and, sigmoidoscopy are covered. Kinds of endoscopy are rely on the organ inspected and the route through which endoscope accesses one's body. 

Preparation

Similar to several different procedures, the initial phase prior to your endoscopy is to let your specialist know about your medical circumstances and medications. Particularly blood-thinners, for example, aspirin usage should be stopped so as to ensure that your procedure will be carried out without difficulties. In addition, fasting for a few hours before and maybe taking laxatives to clean your system is a necessity for several kinds of endoscopy, for example, upper GI (gastrointestinal) endoscopy or colonoscopy.

How It Is Performed

There are numerous kinds of endoscopy, consisting of: 
•Upper endoscopy / upper GI (gastrointestinal) endoscopy/gastroscopy – an endoscope accesses your body over your mouth and examineyour upper digestive system up to small intestine 
•Colonoscopy – accesses your body over your anus and examine your colon
•Sigmoidoscopy– likewise concentrated onthe sigmoidal part of your colon 
•Enteroscopy – concentrated on yoursmall bowel 
•Hysteroscopy – an endoscope is placed into the uterus to scan for origins of uncommon bleeding
•Capsule endoscopy – a novel, experimental method,inwhich endoscope is swallowed by a patient in the form of a capsule.  

Mostly, endoscopy is carried outwithout general anesthesia; occasionally, local anesthesia is given.

Recovery

An endoscopy has no recovery period. In case of being under local or general anesthesia, after your endoscopy, someone should drive you home. A few people may feel disturbed quite a while after colonoscopy and other kinds of endoscopy, where the endoscope is placed over the anus. However, it should cease in a day.
