Flymedi- Abud Alielah

I found flymedi based on a recommendation by a friend of the family, I was given Abud contact with high recommendation of his service and I was not disappointed at all ! From day one Abud was very helpful and professional. Abud found for me the suitable medical center and the perfect surgeon! He was always available day and night and on weekends as well and very patient with my unlimited questions and inquiries :) and very clear with provided information. After agreeing on the price, place, doctor and dates of the surgery, Abud took care of and planned everything from the day of arrival until the departure, including the hotel, driver, dates of surgery, consultations and more. I am very satisfied, everything was great 👍🏻 I would definitely use his services again I definitely recommend ✅ ✅ ✅

Never expected such a great hospitality…

Never expected such a great hospitality from Flymedi as a foreigner. From the time I landed in Turkey to the time I come back in my country I was treated as a friend. Thank you Yasmin for guiding me all the way. As you promised, I was not placed on the wait list.

Made my trip overseas so much easier!

Yasmin was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! She told me how to get a travel visa and luckily warned me of any travel restrictions that were going on! I had to rebook my trip twice due to covid & restrictions and Yasmin handled everything on the hospitals end. One of the times I had to rebook it was because my layover was in london and Turkey banned all incoming travel from the UK. The airline never notified me so if it wasn't for Yasmin warning me I would have gotten on the plane and been stuck in london! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Yasmin made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

Recommended For Chin Reduction

Chin reduction surgery or reduction genioplasty is generally recommended for patients in good health and with an oversized or protruding chin or simply patients with inharmonious facial proportions due to their relatively large chins.

Not Recommended For Chin Reduction

Chin reduction surgery is not recommended for patients with normal size chin. In some cases, surgeons can also refer to other procedures, such as neck lift or rhinoplasty, taking into account the needs and facial proportions of patients.


Other contraindications for chin reduction surgery include: 


  • Severe malocclusion 
    Periodontal disease 
    Age under 20

Discharge From Hospital

Patient is required to stay 1 night in the hospital

Duration Of Operation

1 to 2 hours

Overview

Chin reduction surgery, also known as reduction genioplasty or reduction mentoplasty is a type of plastic surgeryprocedure usually performed to improve the aesthetic appearance of the chin area. 
The purpose of chin reduction surgery is to improve the balance and facial harmony by changing the size or shape of the chin. This procedure is performed to remove some of the bone around the jaw to provide a sharper and more balanced appearance.

Most people have a prominent chin generally due to genetics. While a strong and prominent chin can be a good appearance for malepatients, females don't usually prefer a large chin as it is symbolized masculinity. As such, most patients requiring chin reduction surgery are females, but it's not a female-only procedure, some males may also feel that a smaller chin can be more balanced with their facial proportions. 


Other procedures related to chin area include: 
● Chin implant surgery 
● Chin augmentation or enhancement surgery 
● Sliding genioplasty surgery 

Reduction genioplasty or chin reduction surgery can be performed by itself or in conjunction with rhinoplasty surgery or a neck lift procedure – the latter being recommended for patients with excess skin and fatty tissue around the chin (also known as a double chin).

Preparation

Patients are required to avoid blood thinners, herbal teas, herbal supplements as well as anti-inflammatory medicines for at least 2 weeks before chin reduction surgery. Smoking is also prohibited for at least a month before and after the procedure.

How It Is Performed

Before the procedure, surgeons need x-rays of the chin area, so any anomalies can be checked. After anesthesia is applied, an incision is created in the mouth or under the chin. With the help of this incision, the bone at the end of the patient's chin is separated and then reshaped. The surgeon effectively removes excess bone until the desired result is achieved. The chin tip is repositioned with special plates and wires. Finally, the incision is closed with dissolving sutures and the chin reduction surgery is completed.

Recovery

The patient is given a post-operative compression bandage, which must be worn for several days. Postoperatively, some swelling, numbness and pain may occur, but prescribed pain relievers can help relieve the patient's discomfort. The swelling will go down in around 2 weeks and most patients can return to work in around a week. Heavy physical activities need to be avoided for at least 4 weeks – the bone needs time to heal.

Risks

Chin reduction surgery risks and complications can include: 


  • Infection 
    Scarring under the chin 
    Allergic reactions to general anesthesia 
    Nerve damage that causes mouth or lip numbness

Side Effects

Chin reduction surgery side effects can include:

  • Hematoma
    Swelling or bruising around the chin
    Numbness
    Pain

Success Rates

Chin reduction surgery reviews set the average success rate at around 90-95%.

Before And After

The results of chin reduction surgery can be seen immediately. The post-operative swelling will gradually decrease during the first 2 weeks of the recovery period. Patients will be able to enjoy a more harmonious balance of their facial proportions, especially if done in conjunction with a neck lift, facelift or rhinoplasty.

Faq

Are Reduction Genioplasty Results Permanent?
Yes, the results are permanent but, in some cases, patients will also have to deal with excess fatty tissue around the chin area – this problem can be solved through a neck lift procedure. Non-surgical techniques such as Botox or dermal filler will provide temporary results comparing with the chin reduction surgery.  

 

How Long Before the Swelling Goes Down?
The swelling will disappear completely after approximately 4 months of genioplasty surgery. Approximately 2 weeks after the procedure, almost 80% of the swelling will decrease.

 

When Can I Engage in Contact Sports?
Patients can attend in heavy physical activities such as contact sports in around 4 weeks, but it's still a good idea to protect the chin as much as possible because the bones need a certain period of time to heal completely.
