(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.

Recommended For Male Breast Implants

Candidates for the male to female breast implant surgery are usually people who do not consider their biological sex to be representing their gender. In order to achieve harmony between their biology and gender, they decide for male breast implant surgery despite the use of feminizing hormones may not be satisfied with the size of their breasts.  

A male getting breast implant has ceased to be a scandal, and such a situation becomes more and more acceptable in many societies. Breast implants for males are available in many clinics.

Not Recommended For Male Breast Implants

Hormone treatment applied, which usually takes for 18 months or more, may have already increased the amount of breast tissue, and it would be advantageous. However, individual assessment is always of the main importance.

Also, many doctors expect from a male getting breast implants to provide an opinion of a psychologist stating that the patient is struggling with biological sex and wants to change the gender. Only when they decide to perform a male breast augmentation surgery.

Overview

Male breast implants are usually a part of the male to female sex reassignment surgery. Male getting breast implants rarely make it for a temporary whim but instead tries to express new gender identity. Male breast augmentation surgery procedure is literally as same as with the general breast augmentation procedure, despite may differ in some steps due to the differences in anatomy. Breast augmentation surgery with implants is an operation to change and enhance the physical form of the breasts to provide a proportionate, feminine shape.

Male breast implants are a way to achieve better harmony between body and mind for people who do not consider themselves male anymore and want to explore their new identity fully. 

Preparation

Male breast augmentation surgery preparations do not vary from those for female breast augmentation. Patients wishing to get male breast implants shall inform their doctors about medical conditions they suffer from as well as provide a list of medications taken by them in order to avoid any circumstances that can affect the results of male breast implants surgery. Smoking and drinking alcohol are not really recommended before male breast augmentation surgery. The patients also avoid taking aspirin and certain anti-inflammatory drugs as they can increase bleeding. Additionally, patients are asked to fast for a few hours prior to the surgery. 

How It Is Performed

Male breast implants may be of a few types, including: 
• round implants, teardrop implants (shape-based categorization)

• saline implants, silicone implants (material-based categorization) 

A male who will get the breast implants chooses the type and size of breast implants for males before the surgery with the consultation with his doctor. Additionally, male breast augmentation surgery may vary also depending on the location of the implants where they place under or over the muscle.

Doctors performing the male to female breast implant surgery perform a cut, through which they are able to insert male breast implants and position them properly in order to keep them still and prevent further changes. Then, the incisions are stitched carefully, and the breast augmentation recovery process may start.

Recovery

Recovery for patients getting male breast implants will take a few weeks. First weeks after male breast implant surgery usually causes swelling and bruising together with specific amounts of pain, but these are manageable with prescribed painkillers and special garments. The patients also shouldn't do any heavy lifting for up to six weeks after getting their breast implants.

Male getting breast implants may come back to work after 1 to 4 weeks, depending mostly on the type of job.

Risks

Breast implants for males may, similarly to breast implants for females, lead to certain complications, including infection, bleeding, bruising, scars, bad reaction to anesthesia, numbness of nipples, deformation, deflation or change of position of male breast implants and others. 

Side Effects

To major side effects of male breast implants belong initial swelling and bruising, which should fade as the time from surgery passes.

Success Rates

The exact success rates for male breast implants surgery is not known, but an absolute majority of male breast augmentation surgery cases are successful. However, over time, many people who have undergone a male breast augmentation surgery decide on a breast implant revision in order to obtain a better form of male breast implants or to correct their position.
