The first time I had some doubts about the intervențion , Due to the fact that the hair regenerates periodic,what I can say is that the result of a hair transplant is 100% successful. This revival comes after a period of 9 months waiting to see the result of the intervention. I recommend Flymedi and of course I recommend the person who was near me during the intervention Mr Mustafa. Mr. Mustafa is a person I rarely met. I can say that everything related to professionalism is on his side. I recommend to all those who want to have professional interventions, to have the highest confidence in Flymedi. Thank you Flymedi !

I came across FlyMedi online while looking for medical tourism options for septorhinoplasty in Turkey. I was contacted by FlyMedi's Nadia via email within hours of submitting for more information on their website. Nadia made herself available 24/7 via email and WhatsApp, even as I traveled across multiple time zones. Nadia provided multiple options in multiple locations with pros and cons and for each and stayed in touch throughout the process. I already recommended FlyMedi and specifically Nadia to friends and family considering Turkey for any medical tourism they may be considering. Thank you Nadia!

I'd been researching the procedure for a while and the cost in Australia was significantly higher than in Turkey. I came across the Flymedi website and within hours of submitting an enquiry, Nadia had reached out. She provided multiple quotes with different options, background on the doctors and hospitals. Nadia was available 24/7 and really helped me through everything from start to finish. Great business idea, exceptional staff and great customer service

I am really happy that I have planned my operation through Flymedi. Robin took great care of me and was always there for me and made everything possible. I had a breast lift and tummy tuck and had liposuction by Dr. Asli Datli. MedicalPark in Istanbul. she is a super doctor, the results has become very nice and was also there well cared for. Nurse Yeliz is adorable and has always been by my side. She was also always available and answered all my questions. I have felt very well, thanks again to all I am very satisfied.

Recommended For Soft Tissue Grafts

The patients with the following symptoms can be the candidates for soft tissue grafting:

• Gum recession

• Tooth decay

• Family history of gum recession

•Root sensitivity

Not Recommended For Soft Tissue Grafts

If you are suffering from gum recession, your doctors would make a treatment plan according to your needs and choose the best treatment of soft tissue grafts.

Overview

Soft tissue grafting is usually performed to fight with gum recession. The patients can experience gum recession as a result of periodontal disease, trauma, aging, or aggressive tooth brushing. The patients with gum recession may experience increased sensitivity to hot and cold. Also, the decay becomes more prevalent in this condition.

To fight with gum recession, soft tissue grafts are used to either cover the exposed roots or develop gum tissue. By using soft tissue grafts the risk for further recession and bone loss, decay, and sensitivity is decreased.

Preparation

There is no detailed preparation needed before soft tissue grafts. There is no specific diet to follow nor need for fasting. However, the patient should arrange transportation since it would be difficult to drive with discomfort caused by the procedure.

How It Is Performed

Soft tissue grafts have three common types that include:

• Free gingival graft: This procedure is usually performed for thickening the present tissue. During this practice, a piece of tissue is taken from the palate and stitched to the grafting spot to help natural growth.

• Pedicle graft: In this technique, the existing local gum tissue is moved to the graft site where the gum recession is. This method is very successful since it does not cause to cut off blood flow in the mouth.

• Connective tissue graft: This type of graft is the most common one. While performing this procedure, the doctor removes a part of connective tissue from a small flap in the mouth and stitch up to the graft site.

Recovery

After the procedure, the recovery period of soft tissue grafting would take about six weeks in total. During the first couple of weeks of the recovery period, the patient should eat soft, cold foods that would not damage or irritate the graft. In order to prevent infections, your doctor might recommend you using an antimicrobial mouthwash for a few weeks. Also, it is possible to experience some amounts of pain after the procedure but with pain medications, it can be managed.

Risks

There are several complications related to soft tissue graft, but these are very rare. Infections after the soft tissue graft are very uncommon. However, if you notice any bleeding from your graft site you should contact your doctor.

Success Rates

Even though it is very rare, sometimes the procedure might be performed again when the graft tissue does not adapt to the graft site appropriately. However, this is very uncommon; usually soft tissue grafts give good results. 

Before And After

After the recovery process, the patients would notice positive changes in their life such as decreased sensitivity to hot and cold foods/drinks, increased comfort and an improved smile which also affects the patient’s self-confidence as well.

Faq
