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.

Recommended For DHI with Choi Implanter Pen

Both male and female patients suffering from pattern hair loss can benefit from this procedure. Female patients are often required to undergo several tests in order to rule out other causes for hair loss such as anemia or thyroid deficiency. Patients with hair loss in the eyebrows, eyelashes, or face region can also opt for this procedure. The only requirement for patients wishing to undergo this procedure has enough healthy hair in the donor area – usually the back of the head. 

Overview

Alopecia, commonly known as hair loss, can affect both men and women. Direct hair Implantation with Choi Implanter Pen can be a permanent solution for patients facing this issue.

Direct Hair Implantation or DHI for short is a cosmetic procedure very similar to Follicular Unit Extraction: The harvesting of hair follicles from the donor area is the same, while the implantation of hair grafts in the receiving area is done with an instrument specifically designed for this purpose – this instrument is called a CHOI Implanter. 

Preparation

Direct Hair Implantation with Choi Implanter Pen involves several steps, including:

  • Planning the procedure
  • Patient preparation
  • Anesthesia
  • Harvesting of the hair grafts
  • Securing the harvested grafts
  • Implanting the grafts in the desired area or areas
  • Applying bandages in the donor area and receiving area

Each step is heavily dependent on the patient's needs. The planning phase usually involves blood tests, a thorough investigation of the patient's medical history and marking the donor area, and the receiving area. The patient's hair can also be shortened to make it easier for the doctor to harvest the grafts. Antiseptic solutions can also be applied to the scalp area before local anesthesia is administered in the donor and receiving areas.

How It Is Performed

The Choi Implanter is a device built with the DHI technique in mind. This ingenious device is loaded with follicular bundles made up of 1-4 hairs. The hair transplant technician will place the needle on the receiving area and press the piston to place the new hair graft properly. A hair transplant team made up of three members, and two Choi Implanters can implant up to 12 grafts per minute, which means around 700 an hour. The Choi Implanter allows the hair transplant technician to carefully direct hair growth patterns and to place the hair follicles closer than with other techniques.

Materials

This revolutionary technology was introduced in 1992 by Chio. With procedures becoming faster paced, the use of a DHI – CHOI Pen Hair Transplant allows the surgeon to take out the hair from the scalp, while a second physician implants them into the specific area with a needle or needle-free CHOI implanter. This, therefore, reduces the amount of damage that is caused to the follicle as well as reducing the downtime following the procedure and increasing the speed of the procedure. 

Recovery

DHI hair transplantation provides consistent results. Surgeons use DHI-CHOI Pen to control depth, angle, and direction of the implant. New hairs grow as the natural hairs. There are no stitches and no scars with a DHI – CHOI Pen Hair Transplant, so patients recover quickly. 

Side Effects

Direct Hair Implantation with a Choi Implanter Pen is generally a very safe procedure, but nonetheless, side effects or complications can appear. Most patients will experience bruising, swelling, and small amounts of bleeding. Small cysts may also form after the procedure is performed, but these usually disappear by themselves or are treated quite easily.

Before And After

The first results will be visible after about four months. The full effect of a hair transplant operation should be apparent at the one-year mark. It's possible that the transplanted follicles will themselves eventually begin to shrink and produce smaller hairs, in which case another transplant procedure is an option.

What are the advantages of DHI Hair Transplant?

DHI procedure significantly reduces the transit time as compared to the current procedure of FUE, and thus minimizes the physical handling, mechanical trauma, chances of desiccation, hypoxia, infection, and grafts getting heated up. It is an effective surgical modality for hair restoration. Although it may appear slightly more difficult and long procedure for the traditional FUE surgeon in the beginning, with more practice and after improvement of expertise, it may take lesser time and turn out to be easier. 

What causes hair loss?

Hair loss, also known as androgenetic alopecia is a common problem which can affect men and women alike. This condition can be caused by systemic diseases, different dermatologic conditions as well as physical trauma, which can prohibit the hair from growing naturally. Hair loss can have a very negative effect on one's emotional wellbeing and self-esteem.
