IQ FUE Hair Transplant
Trichoscopically Controlled FUE, IQ Guarantee per Follicle
At IQ Intensive Quality One Day Skin Clinics, we perform the latest FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique for men and women in order to produce an optimum natural and permanent result. Our technique allows an artistic approach in the distribution of grafts. With the help of special microscopes and surgical tools with a diameter of less than 1mm, hair follicles are extracted individually from the donor area without affecting their viability and transferred one-by-one to the recipient area at an angle and density to mimic the natural hair growth pattern. The procedure is carried out under local anesthesia and leaves no scar or any other mark at the donor area. Once transplanted, the hair will grow for lifetime while full results are seen after 9-12 months.
We have over 25 years of experience in hair restoration and have treated successfully over 15,000 patients, providing the highest level of outcome and post-treatment care. To ensure best results, we use sophisticated diagnosis methods, including trichoscopy to analyze the scalp and hair and calculate donor capacity prior to the hair transplant session, as well as to monitor treatment and follow-up evaluation. Also, we offer cutting-edge therapies such as PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) to enhance the viability and regrowth of hair follicles. For the health of the patient’s hair, we provide a lifelong e-hair health support offering patient the opportunity of using our e-health system to send us regular check-ups, pictures and lab tests and receive our recommendations on various therapeutic options and personalized treatment plans. Patient-medical tourist can safely travel back wearing a jockey hat without any other obstacle for his everyday life.
Minimally-invasive and safe procedure, with no visible scar at all
Sagging and droopy eyelids can cause aesthetic or functional problems. At IQ Intensive Quality One Day Skin Clinics, we offer patient a pioneering surgery technique for both eyelid problems in order to give eyes a healthy, younger-looking appearance. Blepharoplasty procedure is performed under local anesthesia in our one day clinic premises and usually lasts about 1 ½ hours or less. Depending upon each patient’s problem, surgery involves removing excess skin and fat from eyelids areas and can be combined with eyebrow lift, fat injection or eyebrow fixation. The incision is small and made along the natural folds of the eyelids, so scarring is unnoticeable. Since the procedure involves minimal discomfort, patient may be discharged about a couple of hours after the surgery.
Our experienced and specialized surgeons offer the highest level of expertise in plastic surgery, from diagnosis to treatment, safely performing blepharoplasty with no risk of complications. Afterwards, patient will be able to get outside wearing sunglasses, while a mild to moderate swelling and bruising around the eyes will be fully healed just in a few days. Following the post-surgery instructions, more patients-travelers can return to daily activities as quickly as possible enjoying their holidays in Greece. The effects of the eyelid surgery usually last up to 10-15 years.
Latest body contouring procedure with permanent results in one session
VASER® Lipo is the ideal liposuction technique, useful to sculpt the body by gently removing stubborn fat deposits from areas where diet and exercise fail to give the desired results. The procedure uses latest ultrasound technology to break down fat cells and liquefy fat making it easier to extract through a small needle leaving intact the nearby tissues, blood vessels and nerves. VASER® can be used selectively at areas where the fat is usually located, such as tummy, saddlebags, buttocks, hips, thighs, neck and chin, back, arms, knees and ankles, love handles. The “fat pockets” get empty just in one session while the body is contoured and skin is tightened without the need for further treatment. Procedure is performed under local anesthesia between 90 minutes to 3 hours depending on the treated area. As it only requires minor incisions and no any stitches to be made, treatment is less traumatic than traditional liposuction, causing less swelling and bruising and faster recovery period.
IQ Intensive Quality One Day Skin Clinics was the first to launch VASER® lipo in Greece with advanced surgical techniques. Our experienced surgeons perform hundreds of VASER® lipo each year to ensure a minimally-invasive procedure with the best natural looking results. For an athletic figure (an abdominal 6 packs definition) or a muscular shadow and curve enhancement, they specialize in VASER® 4D High Definition technique. Also, they can use VASER® to augment the size of breast or buttock by transferring the removed fat to the targeted areas. Patients usually leave clinic 1 hour after the procedure and return back to normal light duties, following the suggested recovery plan to allow body to reshape fully.
Breast Cosmetic Procedures
Natural-looking results without scars, short recovery time
Medical tourism for breast cosmetic surgery is becoming an increasingly popular phenomenon. IQ Intensive Quality One Day Skin Clinics offer breast cosmetic surgery procedures using the latest techniques to help patients achieve their desired breast appearance. Our experienced plastic surgeons provide patients personal consultation (online consultation if needed), respectful of their needs, about everything from the procedure itself to the aftercare routine. Our breast procedures include breast augmentation, breast lift and breast reduction, performed under general anesthesia. Surgery duration is usually from 90 minutes up to three hours depending on the procedure and patient’s individual case. Most patients return to light daily activities a few days after the surgery. Breast surgery carried out by our board-certified plastic surgeons lead to minimum tissue trauma, with no scarring and complications.
Breast augmentation involves enlarging the size of breasts with either breast silicone implants or fat transfer procedure utilizing unwanted fat from other areas of the body. Fat transfer technique is recommended for women who want a small increase in size or seek to correct any breast asymmetry. At our clinics, we perform both methods of breast augmentation to increase fullness and volume, as well as to improve projection and restore the breasts’ symmetry. We use high quality silicone implants that are 100% safe, approved by the FDA and are identified by a unique serial number. The silicone implants have a lifetime warranty and are characterized by a soft texture that gives breast a natural appearance. Breast augmentation is a minimally-invasive procedure, can be performed as a day case and can be combined with a breast lift procedure.
Breast lift is a procedure that intends to raise and reshape sagging breasts due to pregnancy, gravity or weight fluctuations. Our plastic surgeons can evaluate the patient’s condition and perform the suitable technique to create elevated and youthful looking breasts. During the surgery, excess skin is removed and breast tissue is tightened, while the position of the nipples and areolae is raised and the size of the areolae can be reduced to keep in proportion to the newly shaped breasts. Breast lift can be performed with or without the change of the breasts size. However, it can be done also in combination with breast reduction. Breast reduction can help women minimize problems including neck/back pain and skin irritation as well as breathing issues because of the weight of their breasts. At our clinics, this procedure involves the removal of the excess tissue, fat and skin from the breasts in order to obtain a new breast size in proportion with the body. The nipple and areola are moved to a higher position in the correct place.
Best, effective ways to reduce male breasts
Gynecomastia is a medical condition that affects men of all ages and causes excess fat and glandular tissue. It is developed in one or both breasts and leads to physical and emotional distress. At IQ Intensive Quality One Day Skin Clinics, the surgery usually involves liposuction with VASER® Lipo and surgical removal of glandular tissue in order to create a flatter chest and enhance the body shape. Excess fat is removed through a small incision made near the pigmented skin surrounding the nipples, so there is no visible scar after the surgery. Procedure is performed under general anesthesia in just one session and results are permanent. At our facilities, the procedure is outpatient, offering thus the patient the opportunity to leave clinic the same day without any need to remain overnight.
In mild-moderate cases and certain forms of gynecomastia, our professional team reduces enlarged male breasts by using CoolSculpting®, the authentic cryolipolysis process which eliminates the fat from the targeted zones in one session. It is a non-invasive and painless method based on the latest fat-freezing technology and it involves no recovery or downtime. CoolSculpting® is performed with the application of controlled cooling pads on the skin that freeze the fat cells which are eliminated from the body through the natural waste elimination process.
EndoLift, Mini Lift and Maxi Lift for a youthful face appearance
Cosmetic facial surgery aims to reverse the signs of aging such as loose skin, fine lines and deep wrinkles. Specialty trained facial plastic surgeons at IQ Intensive Quality One Day Skin Clinics can elevate the skin, tighten the underlying tissues and reposition contours of the face and neck using personalized facelift surgical techniques according to the unique needs of the patients. Facelift surgery is an outpatient procedure performed under local or general anesthesia in one session that usually takes up to 2 hours depending on the surgical plan. Results are immediately visible and can last up to a decade. Depending on the patient’s preferences our facelift methods include Endolift, Mini lift and Maxi lift options.
EndoLift is an advanced minimally-invasive facelift technique in cosmetic surgery, one of the most popular procedures in US and Europe performed for facial rejuvenation. It remodels the entire face and neck by the use of semi-elastic, absorbable surgical sutures and involves small incisions that leave no scars. Most patients return to normal activities immediately after surgery, however it is recommended to avoid strenuous exercise and exposure to sunlight 2 to 4 weeks until the healing process is complete. During Mini Lift, our surgeons can manipulate not only the skin but the underlying tissues to result a youthful contour that refresh the look and naturally rejuvenate the face. Facelift incisions are carefully made inside and around the ear, as the ear’s shape is ideal to hide scars. The procedure usually takes from 60 minutes to 90 minutes and is painless as it is performed under monitored anesthesia care or general anesthesia. After the surgery is complete, patient can return to daily activities. Maxi Lift is designed to reduce excess sagging skin achieving facial symmetry and natural appearance. Incision is marked to firmly pull neck skin and upper part of the face. The procedure generally takes 2 hours under local anesthesia and patient can leave clinic on the same day after surgery.
