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 Hair Transplant

An article by Aman Dua and Kapil Dua reveals that hair transplant procedures are not recommended for patients suffering from spot baldness, patients with insufficient hair at the donor site (the back of the head) or female patients suffering from diffuse pattern balding, as this condition tends to affect the donor area as well, making hair follicles unusable.

Discharge From Hospital

Overnight stay is not required

Duration Of Operation

4 to 12 hours

Minimum Stay

Patients can usually fly afterwards

Preparation

The patient should stop the intake of any soft drugs, alcohol, anti-inflammatory medicine, aspirin, vitamins, supplements and herbs at least one week before the surgery.

Side Effects

Patients may feel itchy sensations and some pain during the first weeks after a hair transplant. During this time some bleeding may occur but it’s unlikely. A study by M.A. Nilforoushzadeh and his team reveals that post-operative effects can include swelling, numbness or infections which can be easily treated with antibiotics.

Success Rates

The success rate of this procedure depends heavily on the recovery period and the patient’s ability to follow the surgeon’s guidelines. According to a study on hair transplant by Alfonso Barrera M. D., patients usually experience a success rate of 95% after a year – “success rate” refers to hair growing naturally in the recipient area.

Before And After

The patient must have a clear understanding of the procedure itself and what to expect from it. The immediate post-operative recovery period is essential for the success of the operation but results come into full effect only a year after surgery, when the hair in the recipient area starts growing naturally and is indistinguishable from the rest of the patient’s hair.

Back To Work

3 to 7 days after the surgery

Back To Sports

1 week after the surgery

Extra Content

DHI VS FUE VS FUT

FUT Overview

FUT or Follicular Unit Transplant is one of the more traditional hair restoration techniques still in use in certain medical centres around the world. The Follicular Unit Transplant procedure begins with the doctor outlining a thin strip of the scalp from the back of the patient’s head. This area is usually unaffected by alopecia and hair follicles have a higher chance of growing successfully after transplant. The hair follicles are then removed from the strip of scalp with the help of a microscope – they will be later divided into single units containing 1-3 hair follicles. The patient’s scalp is then sewn back together and the implant phase of the procedure can begin. FUT hair transplants are generally more affordable than other hair restoration techniques simply due to the fact that the extraction phase is much quicker but patients who prefer short hair usually opt for a different technique since FUT leaves a long scar along the patient’s back of the head. Patients prone to keloid scarring should opt for a different technique since the scar will be quite noticeable. 

FUE Overview

FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction is another established hair restoration technique where instead of a strip of scalp being removed to harvest hair follicles, a punch is used. The punch creates a circular mico-incision around a group of hair follicles or single hair follicle, removing it from the scalp. The Follicular Unit Extraction technique leaves small open holes in the scalp which will heal within a few weeks, leaving tiny white scars once fully healed. Once enough hair follicles are extracted through this method, the surgeon is ready to start implanting them into the desired area. The biggest advantage of FUE over FUT is the minimal scarring after the procedure and the fact that patients can resume their daily activities faster. Unfortunately, FUE is somewhat more expensive than FUT, since this technique is more time consuming. In some cases the survival rate of transplanted hair follicles can be lower with the FUE technique, if the hair follicle roots are affected during extraction. By opting for an experienced hair restoration surgeon, patients can minimise any risks and enjoy a higher survival rate for implanted follicles. 

DHI Overview

Direct Hair Implantation is sometimes called a “Micro-FUE” hair transplant since it uses the same basic technique but with some differences. DHI does not cut into the scalp as with FUE, using only very small micro punches with a diameter of 1 mm or less. These small punches are minimally invasive, ensuring no scars are left in the donor area. One of the differences between FUE and DHI is the fact that with DHI the hair follicles are carefully extracted one by one before being transferred to the receiving area. This procedure is always done by a highly trained specialist in order to ensure the best results. The hair follicles are then implanted in the receiving area in a process similar to the FUE technique – a technician will create reception holes in the receiving area before starting to implant the donated hair follicles.
