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!

Overview

Full abdominoplasty, also known as full tummy tuck surgery, is a kind of complex cosmetic surgery performed in the abdomen area with the aim of making it look more firm, toned or thinner. There are many benefits of a full tummy tuck such as much flatter and smoother abdomen and reduced appearance of stretch marks.

Full tummy tuck surgery is popular among patients that had one or several pregnancies, or have excess sagging skin due to the aging process or a major weight loss. A complete abdominoplasty or full tummy tuck surgery often involves liposuction in order to improve the final results. 

Preparation

Before opting for a full tummy tuck surgery or a complete abdominoplasty, it is recommended that patients inform themselves over the risks and complications of the procedure. Patients should have good general health, apply a healthy diet and stop smoking at least one month before and after the operation.

How It Is Performed

A full abdominoplasty or traditional tummy tuck surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, and it takes between two to five hours. 
The surgeon makes a horizontally-oriented incision in the area between the pubic hairline and belly button. A full tummy tuck surgery involves a second vertical incision in order to change the position of the navel and to create a more appealing result.The shape and length of the incisions will be determined by the amount of excess skin patients have. During the surgery, surgeons can tighten the muscles by pulling them closer together and stitching them to give a more toned look and to create a smaller waistline.This is the muscle repair stage of the surgery. Sometimes liposuction might be used to improve the results by removing the undesired fat tissue, and the excess skin is also removed.

After the full abdominoplasty is complete, the incisions are closed using surgical stitches and the full tummy tuck recovery period can begin

Recovery

Depending on the scope of the procedure and the patient's condition, the average full tummy tuck surgery recovery may last from one to four weeks. During this process, patients should avoid heavy lifting and are advised to take at least a few weeks off from work. Patients should wear a compression garment that can reduce swelling and bruising. This garment helps the skin conform to the new body shape. Also, smoking should be avoided for several weeks after the procedure.

Risks

Possible full tummy tuck risks and complications include: 
• Bleeding 
• Anesthesia complications 
• Fat necrosis 
• Asymmetry 
• Pulmonary embolism

• Delayed healing
• Thrombosis 
• Infection 
• Possibility of revision surgery 
• Skin discoloration 
• Suture rupture 
• Fluid accumulation

• Visible Scars

Side Effects

A full abdominoplasty can have several side effects, including: 
• Swelling 
• Bruising 

• Soreness or tenderness
• Post-surgical tummy tuck scars 
• Temporary discomfort

• Low back pain

Success Rates

The procedure has a 95% success rate according to patients’ reviews

Before And After

If patients follow their doctor's instructions carefully, they will be more satisfied with the results. If patients adopt a healthy lifestyle and maintain their weight in a stable and healthy range, the results of the surgery may last for years.

 

The benefits of the full tummy tuck operation are: 
• Improved self-confidence

• Improved appearance and body proportion

• Tighter abdominal muscles

• Tight and flat abdominal skin

Faq

Full Tummy Tuck Vs. Mini Tummy Tuck
Complete abdominoplasty is more complex and involves two incisions and sutures while affecting a larger area of the abdomen. While a mini tummy tuck needs only a small incision, the skin shaped on the lower abdomen will be more limited in size.

Are There Any Alternatives to A Full Abdominoplasty Or Full Tummy Tuck?
Cosmetics can be used to tighten the skin but they do not remove the excess skin and they are not as effective as full tummy tuck surgery. Also, some non-surgical alternatives like coolsculpting, lasers, and thermage can be chosen but only for minor changes. 

What’s the Difference Between A Liposuction And Full Tummy Tuck?
With a full tummy tuck, both excess fat and skin are removed while with liposuction, only the excess fat is removed.
