Long waiting times in UK…

Because of long waiting times in UK hospitals due to Covid19, I hit upon the idea of having my bilateral hernia surgery done while on a 2-week holiday in Antalya. After making inquiries through Yasmin, I had a short but comprehensive consultation with an eminent surgeon Prof Alihan Gürkan and my operation was scheduled for a day halfway through my stay in Antalya. It went well with keyhole surgery, I stayed in overnight and was discharged the next day, which gave me 6 days to recover before my flight home to Scotland. Yasmin kept in touch throughout, making sure I had transport to and from the hospital, and a special thanks to Fatma, my mentor and guide at the Memorial Hospital on my day of tests and examinations. I telephoned my surgeon a few days after the operation for advice on removing my plasters and he was most helpful and reassuring about my complete recovery. I was not too fond of the breakfast, but considered it as another form of medicine! My flight home was amazingly comfortable without painkillers, although they were definitely needed for a few days after my operation. In conclusion, I would be happy to have other treatment like this, though in a nice sort of way I hope never to set eyes on the Memorial Hospital again. 🙂

A very positive outcome

A very positive outcome, following my decision to pursue in having dental cosmetic surgery/treatment carried out in Turkey. Excellent advisory skills by Flymedi rep Abud. He was professional, well informed, and followed me up with total attention throughout the whole process. Last but not least, I thank Dr Ahmed Kumsan and his team at Infinity Smiles Dental Clinic for their commitment and professionalism. Highly recommended.

Thank you Flymedi

I was considering several different options, however Abud was by far the most committed and helpful of all the agents I'd been in discussions with. Everything was organised for me and I was guided throughout and if I was feeling apprehensive about anything or had any questions Abud was always on hand to answer my questions and give reassurances. I'm so happy with the results of my operation and I was left overwhelmed by how friendly and supportive everyone was throughout. If you're considering using flymedi then I can honestly say you'll be delighted with the service both before during and after your surgery.

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.
