Our patient came from the Netherlands to have a hair transplant. Two days of hair transplantation were done. On the first day, hair follicles were taken from the back of the head. On the second day, hair was removed from his chest. Our patients benefited from both our hair transplant and body hair transplant services. Our patient is very satisfied with the treatment he received. That’s why he recommends us to everyone. Let’s listen to his experiences.
“Hi! I wanted to get a hair transplant so I was searching on the internet. I came across FlyHealth and I think so far so good. I’ve had transplants before but I wanted more coverage so ı was kind of losing hope that I’ll have full hair. But this is my fourth transplant in general and I can already see the difference. Everything was perfect. I was picked up from the airport and they dropped me off at the hotel. The reservations were made, and the staff was friendly. There was a translator on demand. Basically, everything was taken off. It was a very lavish and good experience. So I would recommend FlyHealth to everyone who wants to get their hair back. Thank you!”
Hair loss is a severe issue that causes sadness in both men and women and can have a negative impact on self-esteem. If the cause is not discovered early on and the required safeguards are not followed, hair loss may occur. Hair transplantation is a successful surgical method applied to regrow hair loss areas around the world for about 20 years.
Genetic causes and excess testosterone hormone are often the leading causes of hair loss that require transplantation. Hair loss caused by these reasons is classified as male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia). The roots that cannot be nourished weaken over time and become so damaged that they cannot produce new hair strands. Unfortunately, this situation results in hair loss. In addition, hair loss (Alopecia Areata), skin problems, some internal diseases, various drugs used, stress, psychological factors, and in some cases even environmental factors are among the factors that can cause permanent hair loss.
Due to its geographical location, Turkey is among the countries where androgenetic alopecia is most common. The fact that the problem of genetic hair loss is common in our country has paved the way for the presence of highly experienced and successful doctors and specialists in hair transplantation in Istanbul.
What is hair transplantation?
Hair transplantation is a surgical operation that usually involves transplanting the hair follicles of the person from the nape area to the areas where the hair is completely shed or the hair density decreases. FUT technique is not preferred because it causes scarring after hair transplantation operations. FUE, DHI, and Percutaneous methods are much more advanced than FUT. The technique to being applied to the patient in the transplantation process is decided after the hair structure and shedding density are carefully examined, and the needs of the patient are determined.
DHI hair transplantation technique, which was started to be implemented in 2016, is the first choice of women among other procedures, as it does not require cutting or shaving. DHI hair transplantation is an application in which quality hair follicles selected and collected from the donor area are placed in the planting area with the help of special pens. A pen-like medical apparatus that helps the placement of grafts in the DHI method; Since it can perform grooving and root placement at the same time, it enables roots to be planted in a shorter time. The DHI procedure, which is performed with local anesthesia, starts with loosening the hair follicles with the help of a special device and collecting them one by one. The grafts, which have a piece of tissue on them while being collected, are placed in the transplant area with the help of a special medical pen after being subjected to the separation process.
Body Hair Transplant
An intensive hair transplant is one of the most important factors that ensure success in the hair transplant process. In other words, even if you have very good technical knowledge and make the angle, direction, and hairline of the hair natural, if you cannot make an intensive hair transplant, this success will be overshadowed. Therefore, increasing the density is an important goal in hair transplant operations. For this, it is necessary to increase the source of the hair follicles to be transplanted.
- More intensive hair transplantation can be done by using body hair as a hair source apart from the traditionally used nape area. This is called a body hair transplant.
- By increasing the density in hair transplantation, more natural-looking hair transplantation results are obtained.
- To ensure naturalness, attention should be paid to the following issues besides density:
- To determine a hair transplant line compatible with the facial structure by the doctor,
- To use single grafts starting from the sowing line part in transplantation planning and to use multiple grafts in the middle parts or to use volume-providing grafts,
- To make the planting angle and direction of the hair compatible with the hair in its natural planting area. In general, it should be planted with an angle of 40-45 degrees and in the right direction.
- People who need body hair for hair transplantation are probably those who have more baldness problems. Therefore, each root collected and their planting planning should be done more carefully.

Afterward, no pain should be felt while performing the FUE removal procedure. The time is shorter than the extraction from the normal donor area. It is important that the grafts taken from the body during the transplantation process are distributed among the grafts taken from the donor area by the Micro Fue method.
