EXCELLENT star star

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

Adonis Fertility International Caring Professionals

After trying IVF unsuccessfully in the US for many years Maria from Adonis Fertility International gave me hope. I was very impressed by her work ethic and I trusted she would work hard at helping us become parents. Her communication was top-notch. I choose Adonis because of Maria and then worked with Amy, Nancy, and Ivanna and ALL were Amazing. Everything is broken down for you in steps and very organized. There was always someone there to answer a question you may. Its been a very smooth process, with all the legal documents and made transporting the biomaterial stress-free. We are still in our beginning stages and I will give another review at the end but everything so far has been excellent and I would recommend Adonis to any US couple looking to try IVF and hopefully become parents.

Excellent service

Excellent service. I was really hesitant at first, because I’ve never done anything like this before, but Kirstie did a great job of answering all my questions & concerns, in a timely manner. I would highly recommend using this service.

At the beginning, I was very hesitant about having my surgeries, especially the idea of having them in Turkey, which is a country located across the ocean of where I come from, the United States of America. When I initially started my research, I came across Flymedi, and I strongly believe that connecting with them was the best decision I have made in regards of having my desired surgeries. After entering my contact information, I was contacted from Flymedi by an agent named Abud. On one hand, Abud has been a great assist and support to my journey, as he was involved in every step throughout the process. He was very responsive to all my concerns and inquiries before and after the operations. On the other hand, everyone at the clinic that I was referred to (EstEthica) was very nice and welcoming. The in-person consultant on site (Lamia) was extremely helpful and kind. She, along with the whole clinic staff, made me feel so comfortable and made the whole trip seem as smooth as possible, despite the discomfort after the surgeries. In terms of the results, I can not speak of this just yet as it has only been a week since I have had my operations. However, I will definitely come back within a couple of months to update my review and speak about the results and any other additional notes along the way. In a nutshell, all I can say that I am grateful for everything so far, and I truly appreciate everyone that was involved in this process! P.S. as a word of advice, if you are having a hair transplant operation, I highly recommend having it at least 3 - 4 days before your departure flight back home, as the post operation instructions are a bit intense and not being in a rush would significantly help with the recovery process.

Great experience using Flymedi to find the perfect surgeon and operation for me. Abud answered all my questions and helped so much!

Recommended For Canthoplasty

Canthoplasty surgery is recommended for patients who have excessive, sagging, or wrinkled upper or lower eyelid skin. The procedure is also recommended for patients who have puffy pouches of fat in the lower lids that create a tired or aged appearance and have baggy lower eyelids or simply patients who wish to rejuvenate their appearance.

Not Recommended For Canthoplasty

Canthoplasty surgery, also known as lower eye lift surgery, is not recommended for patients suffering from one or more of the following:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Glaucoma
  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Detached retina
  • Overactive thyroid gland

 

Smoking can affect blood vessels; thus, it may reduce the blood flow to your eyes. Therefore, it is also advised that patients do not smoke; they ideally need to quit smoking before the surgery.

Discharge From Hospital

Usually overnight stay is not required

Duration Of Operation

1 to 3 hours

Overview

Canthoplasty surgery, also known as lateral canthoplastyor eyelid lift surgery, is a type of cosmetic procedure usually performed to make the eye bigger and improve the aesthetic appearance of the eye’s region. The definitionof these surgeries that refer to the eyelids may sometimes interfere with one another: epicanthoplastyor medial canthoplastyis another surgical procedure which enlarges the eye horizontally, is performed at the inner corner of the eye, whereas lateral canthoplasty enlarges the outer edge of the eye.

Canthoplasty surgery can correct sagging, drooping, or bagginess of the lower eyelids. Some individuals may be born with drooping lower, but the natural aging process can also cause lower eyelid droopiness – the skin becomes less elastic after a certain age, and small bags begin to develop under the lower eyelids. Exposure to the sun may also cause the lower eyelids to sag. This brings a tired expression to the patients' faces. The primary aim of canthoplasty surgery is to remove all the bags under the eye and to remove the fatigue on the patient's face and to provide a more youthful and fresh expression. This procedureis also known as lower eyelid surgery.

Preparation

Apart from quitting smoking, oral supplements, herbal teas, and blood thinners such as aspirin need to be avoided for at least 2 weeks before canthoplasty surgery. Alcohol consumption is prohibited for at least 48 hours before and after the lower eye lift surgery.

How It Is Performed

Canthoplasty surgery can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. Surgeons discuss these options with the patient and decide the most appropriate approach according to the patient's condition.

After anesthesia is applied to the patient, the surgeon begins to mark the incision points. The incisions are usually formed in a bend in the corner of the eye so that the scars can be hidden.

A thin plastic shield is used to protect the patient's eyeball. Canthoplasty operation varies from patient to patient but is usually cut by the lower canthal tendon, repositioned, and tightened to obtain a more pleasant appearance. When the procedure is finished, the plastic shield is removed, and the incisions are carefully closed. Bandages are applied to the area that is operated to prevent infection.

Recovery

The canthoplasty surgery recovery period usually lasts around 2 weeks. If normal stitches are used, they will be removed in around a week after the procedure. If soluble sutures are used, they do not need to be removed. Approximately one week after Canthoplasty surgery, patients can return to work and normal activities. Eye drops can be used to keep the eyes moist. Patients will be provided with a special type of gel that can be used to keep the eyes region clean. 

Makeup should be avoided for at least a week after the canthoplasty surgery. Patients can also use cold compresses to help reduce swelling during the canthoplasty recovery time.

Risks

Canthoplasty surgery complications can include: 

  • Bleeding
  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • Damage to deeper structures
  • Hematoma
  • Allergic reaction to anesthesia
  • Dry eye problems
  • Asymmetry
  • Canthoplasty revision surgery

Side Effects

Canthoplasty surgery side effects can include: 

  • Dry eyes
  • Bruising
  • Increase in sensitivity to light
  • Teary and itching eyes
  • Eyelash Hair Loss
  • Pain
  • Discomfort
  • Allergic reactions
  • Swelling
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Unsatisfactory results
  • Blurred vision

Success Rates

The average canthoplasty surgery success rate is over 90%.

Before And After

The procedure’s results are visible immediately. After canthoplasty surgery, patients can enjoy a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. The patient’s eyes will be bigger, and any droopiness or sagginess will be a thing of the past. These results usually continue between 10 and 15 years. Some patients prefer revision surgery to wipe out the effects of aging during or after this time.

Faq

Can Canthoplasty Surgery Be Combined with Other Procedures?
Yes, canthoplasty surgery can be combined with blepharoplasty surgery and canthopexy surgery. 

What Is the Difference Between Canthopexy, Blepharoplasty, and Canthoplasty Surgery? 
These procedures are very similar, and all three aim to improve the aesthetics of the eye area. The main difference is the technique used in the surgery. Different methods are better suited to different patients, and it depends on the problem they are facing. 

Can Canthoplasty Surgery Help Me Get Rid of The Dark Circles Under My Eyes?
It may be helpful, but only if dark circles appear as a result of drooping eyelids or eyes bags under the eyes. Usually, dark circles under the eyes are caused by pigment problems, and canthoplasty is not a solution.
