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.

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.

Recommended For Silhouette Lift

Silhouette lift is recommended for patients with sagging skin and wrinkles in neck, eyebrows and mid-face areas, or patients with jaws or eye bags. The procedure is also recommended for patients simply wanting a rejuvenated facial appearance.

Not Recommended For Silhouette Lift

Some patients may have allergies which will not allow them to be good candidates for a silhouette lift procedure.

Discharge From Hospital

Overnight stay is not required

Duration Of Operation

1 to 2 hours

Overview

Silhouette lift is a minimally invasive procedure, mostly done to rejuvenate the appearance of the middle face, neck and brow region. The process effectively elevates and corrects drooping tissues in these areas with the help of very fine threads that are inserted under the skin. The threads themselves are very similar to those used in facelift surgery – they are made from polypropylene, a material which is currently used for sutures and stitches inside the body.The special facelift procedure called the silhouette InstaLift is an FDA-approved procedure and also used commonly. Surgeons use absorbable sutures with tiny bi-directional cones in this "instant" procedure in order to lift and suspend the deeper layers of the skin. 

 

Silhouette lift is a very safe and effective procedure which offers immediate results. The procedure also has considerable advantages to traditional facelift surgery: 

● No incision – a silhouette lift is a minimally invasive procedure; it means that there is no incision used during the operation. Patients will have no visible scars as well as the risk of infection is minimized as well.

● Speedy recovery – the average silhouette lift recovery period is much shorter than with full facelift surgery. 

● Anesthesia – there is no need to use general anesthesia for a silhouette lift as it used in traditional facelift surgery, local anesthesia is used instead. Therefore, more people can have this procedure, since some people are incompatible with the risks associated with general anesthesia. 

● Good results – a silhouette lift provides immediate remarkable results which last for a certain period before other procedures may become more necessary.

Preparation

Vitamins, blood thinners, anti-inflammatory drugs, some herbal supplements, and herbal teas should be avoided at least 1 week before the silhouette lift. In addition, smokers should stop smoking at least one week before the procedure. If the patient suffers from any infection around the face or neck region, it needs to be treated before the silhouette lift.

How It Is Performed

Local anesthesia is firstly used in the area where the sutures or threads will be placed. Once it applies, the surgeon creates a micro-incision before starting to insert the threads into the treated area. Typically, a long needle is used for this part of the procedure. The threads used have a small umbrella-like part which latches on to tissue, lifting and repositioning it accordingly.

Once the desired appearance is achieved, the needle is removed, and the thread is knotted under the skin. This cannot be seen or felt at this point. There is no need for bandages or sutures for this procedure.

Recovery

Patients usually return to normal activities in around two days after the silhouette lift procedure. The skin needs around a week to 10 days to completely recover from the procedure. All marks relating to the silhouette lift are invisible by this point. During the first two days, if the patients may experience swelling, discomfort, and pain, they can use icepacks and painkiller to ease these post-op side effects. 
For around 3 weeks after the procedure, some restrictions need to be taken into account. Patients must avoid rubbing their face too much or trauma to the face or neck. No pressure should be applied to the face as it can move and remove the silhouette threads.

Risks

Patients may face some problems, risks and complications associated with a silhouette lift procedure can include: 
 


  • Infection
  • Nerve damage
  • Allergic reactions to used materials
  • Complications associated with local anesthesia
  • Asymmetry
  • Delayed or slow healing
  • Revision surgery

Side Effects

Silhouette lift side effects may include one or more of the following: 
 


  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Itching
  • Pain (not severe)
  • Mild bleeding
  • Bruising

Success Rates

The average silhouette lift success rate is over 90%.According to patients’ reviews, the average silhouette lift success rate is over 90%.

Before And After

A silhouette lift procedure offers immediate results. With this procedure, patients can successfully achieve 30 to 70% of the results of the traditional facelift surgery. Along with the cost advantage. The procedure itself can be combined with other non-invasive treatments or more traditional plastic surgery procedures such as liposuction.

Faq

Are Results Permanent?
No, silhouette lift results last between 3 and 5 years, depending on the patient’s aging process or lifestyle.
 

Is It Painful?
Not at all. Patients may experience slight discomfort during the recovery period, but that’s all.

 

Are There Any Silhouette Lift Alternatives? 
Yes, there are a surgical facelift, laser treatments, chemical peelings and skin resurfacing options but results of each procedure may differ.
