Since the average number of the men’s hair is about 100,000 hairs, it is totally normal to lose from 50 to 100 hair follicles a day, as it is considered a very small percentage, which might not be even noticed.
However, if you start to experience losing a larger amount of hair, which gets worse and worse every day while you are brushing your hair or taking a shower, you might suffer from hair loss.
In this case, you should think seriously about performing hair transplantation, which is the only powerful solution to bring your hair back!
Hair transplantation is a cosmetic operation in which you can grow thick and healthy hair, putting an end to a long frustrating journey of hair loss. Hair transplant is carried out by picking hair follicles from the donor area, which is the back and sides of the scalp, to be transplanted in the bald areas, which are called the recipient areas.
A hair transplant is a minimally invasive procedure that is done under local anesthesia. So, you can easily get rid of the baldness over the top of your head and restore healthy hair. Furthermore, a hair transplant is considered an effective treatment for people who experience hair thinning or even hairline receding.
Generally, the required number of follicles that are transplanted, differs from patient to patient according to the size of the baldness area. However, at our clinic, we use advanced techniques that can implant maximum hair follicles, ensuring the ideal depth and right direction. Let’s have a look at our hair transplant techniques:
FUE stands for Follicles Unites Extraction. A popular technique is basically performed by picking hair follicles one by one from the donor areas using a micro motor, transferring them into the baldness areas. The implant process is done by opening very tiny channels in the recipient areas using fine medical blades. At our clinic, the FUE hair transplantation procedure involves three sub techniques:
Sapphire technique is a special FUE technique whose medical blades, which are used for creating tiny channels in the recipient area, are made of valuable stone called “Sapphire”. By depending on this type of blade, the patient does not need to worry about the operation anymore. Thanks to the nature of the sapphire, it causes no damages or scars while the doctor making tiny incisions in the scalp. So, it is totally safe and highly recommended.
Berkutan method is a modern FUE technique, which aims to create very tiny channels using a microneedle made of titanium, unlike the classic FUE technique which is based on steel blades. By fine titanium needle, Berkutan technique can ensure safe transplantation with natural hair direction and depth.
OSL technique is a new hair transplant method that is developed by Turkish physician Yetkin Bayer. OSL which stands for Oblique Simi-Lateral is based on tiny and very sharp blades, which open tiny channels in the recipient area professionally. The operation using the OSL technique can be carried out successfully by our qualified doctors who have sufficient experience in dealing with this method.
DHI technique, which stands for "Direct Hair Transplant", is one of the latest high technology in the field of hair transplantation in Turkey. It has proved its powerful potential to offer quality results for patients who suffer from hair loss since it entered the cosmetic industry.
DHI is based on a stunning implanter called “Choi Pen” by which the hair transplant specialist can create tiny channels and implant the graft concurrently. He loads the implanter’s hollow needle with the graft gently, implanting it by just one click on the plunger. The operation usually involves a couple of Choi pens and several needles for the implantation process.
With DHI, the patient can get fast recovery and ensure no damage or scars due to using the Choi pen. Furthermore, DHI does not require shaving the recipient area, so it is an appropriate technique for people who want to keep their hair long.
Not everyone is capable of carrying out hair transplantation. There are a number of basic criteria which the right candidate should meet:
In order to ensure a successful operation with satisfying results, the qualified patients for hair transplantation in Turkey should follow the following instructions before the procedure:
Let’s have a deep look at how the mechanism of hair transplant works through the following stages:
Here some important aftercare notes which help the patient ensure ideal results and get a speedy recovery.
When you are thinking about performing a hair transplant, Turkey should be on your top priority countries list. Turkey is one of the best destinations in the world when it comes to hair transplant cost. The hair transplant cost in Turkey is considered cheap in comparison with the European countries and the USA.
Of course, it has nothing to do with the quality, Turkey is full of reputable cosmetic clinics which offer high-quality medical services at very reasonable prices. There are two crucial reasons behind the low hair transplant cost in Turkey, involving the low cost of living and continuous Turkish Lira depreciation against the dollar. Therefore, since Turkey can offer cosmetic services at very competitive prices, it will always be the powerful dominant country that attracts foreigners from all around the world.
The cost of hair transplantation is based on several issues; the required hair transplant technique, the number of follicles needed to cover the baldness area, and the number of required sessions. The patient’s condition is diagnosed by our private medical consultant who requests images of the patient's scalp to decide on the ideal technique and other details, including the prices.
The process goes through the exact stages using the same techniques, but the transplantation targets the facial area for men (beard).
Yes, the patient is given a certificate of guarantee for the hair transplant results as well. The hair is permanent because the hair follicles, which are extracted from the donor area, have the same original hair’s properties. Therefore when they are implanted in the baldness area, they maintain the same properties.
If the FUE technique is selected, the patient must shave the entire hair to enable hair transplantation to be performed with high accuracy. However, in the case of hair transplantation for women, the DHI technique is always adopted. With DHI, it doesn’t have to shave a woman's hair completely, only a small area in the back of the scalp is enough.
Yes, of course. Hair transplantation depends on the principle of picking the follicles from the donor area in the back of the scalp and transplanting them in the baldness area. Therefore, the transplanted hair is natural hair with the same characteristics as the person's hair.
From the first month to the second month, transplanted hair loss begins after the third week of transplantation, then the metabolism of the follicles begins with oxygen and hematuria, and new capillaries begin to form inside the follicle, then the hair begins to grow and continues until the fifth month, to obtain 40% From the results and at the beginning of the sixth month, the regular growth of the transplanted hair begins until the eighth month, so that 70% to 80 % of the transplant results are obtained up to a full year, until 100% of the transplant results are obtained.
There are many techniques for hair transplantation, and each of them has certain conditions depending on the condition of the person who is going to perform the hair transplant, which is most likely determined by the doctor. But in general, the FUE technique is used if you have a high degree of baldness, as more than 5,000 hair follicles are transplanted.
