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

Chin implant surgerychin augmentation surgerygenioplasty surgery and mentoplasty surgery are closely related procedures, usually performed in order to improve contours of the chin, neck and jawline.


Although these procedures are technically different, chin implant surgery, chin augmentation, genioplasty surgery and mentoplasty surgery can be performed in just one setting. 

What is the difference between them? 
Chin implant surgery – This procedure uses an implant prosthesis to provide both men and women patients with better facial features balance – usually, it adds more projection to the chin 
● Chin augmentation surgery - The jaw bone is directly enhanced in order to achieve the desired result
● Sliding genioplasty surgery – The chin bone is cut and then repositioned to a more appropriate location – this procedure typically adds more vertical height to the chin 
● Mentoplasty surgery – This procedure is performed in order to reduce the sizes of the chins or correct any malformations of the chin caused by abnormal jaw bones 

Chin augmentation surgery, chin implant surgery, sliding genioplasty surgery and mentoplasty surgery are very popular choices among both patients and surgeons from all around the world because of the effectiveness as well as the simplicity and safety of the procedures. These surgeries can be performed either individually or in coordination with rhinoplasty or a neck lift procedure.

Patients who want to benefit from the advantageous cost of medical tourism abroad, travel to countries such as Turkey for their chin implant surgeries to meet the skilled surgeons, to have the best healthcare and to get a comfortable recovery. 

Preparation

Patients need to quit smoking at least a month before and after the surgery. Blood thinners such as aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, herbal teas and supplements are forbidden for at least 2 weeks before the procedure.

How It Is Performed

Prior to surgery, x-rays of the chin and face are taken and the surgeon decides on which parts of the chin area to modify based on these x-rays.

Depending on the patient’s expectation and his or her facial balance, one of these procedures can be performed: mentoplasty surgery, sliding genioplasty surgery, chin augmentation surgery or chin implant surgery.


Anesthesia choice for these procedures can be local or general. Incisions can be created inside, in the mouth or outside, right under the chin.

If the patient requires a chin implant, the surgeon will create a small pocket in front of the chin bone but under the muscle in order to place the implant. 

Different types of implants can be chosen, general options are: 
● Bone grafted from the patient 
● Fat tissue 
● Silicone implant 
● Biological inserts 

An artificial chin implant is one of the most preferred options as it has a lower risk of developing complications such as infections. The surgeon may also create cuts into the jaw bone or remove and reposition the chin bone for a better effect.

Recovery

The average chin implant surgery recovery period lasts around 3 weeks. Patients usually return to work and normal activities in around 2 weeks. Patients need to sleep face-up, their heads should be elevated, for a minimum of 1 to 2 weeks after surgery. It helps control post-op swelling and protect the incisions. 

Around 80% of the post-op swelling will gradually disappear in 3 weeks. Patients should avoid chewing for the first few days after the procedure – liquid or soft foods can be consumed during this time.

Risks

Chin implant surgery risks and complications can include: 

● The shift in implant position
● Asymmetry 
● Infection 
● Scarring around the incision area

Side Effects

Chin implant surgery side effects can include: 
 

● Anesthesia side effects
● Swelling 
● Lower lip numbness 
● Hematoma (internal bleeding)

Success Rates

Chin implant surgery reviews set the average success rate at 94%.

Before And After

Results are immediately noticeable after chin implant surgery. Patients need to avoid chewing for a few days and also avoid smoking for a month after the operation. These precautions will help reduce surgical scar and allow the body to heal better. The post-op swelling will pass in around 3 weeks, but the bone, if altered, will continue to heal over the course of a year.

Faq

Can Chin Implant Surgery Be Combined With Other Procedures?
Definitely – plastic surgeons recommend combining chin implant procedure usually with rhinoplasty. That way, it is easier to achieve a pleasing facial balance and harmony.  

When Can I Resume Sports?
Sports or any other effortful physical activities need to be avoided for at least 3 weeks after chin implant surgery. 

Can The Implant Affect Shaving?
Absolutely not – male patients will be able to shave as normal, approximately one week from the operation. Electric razors or shavers can be used again around 10 days after the procedure.
