Why hair transplantation in Turkey?

Turkey receives people from all over the world interested in hair transplants due to the quality of implant clinics, its qualified professionals and the advanced infrastructure of hospitals.

Financial cost is also taken into account. The surgery performed in Turkey is cheaper than making your own country, even if flight tickets, hotels, surgery, food and other expenses are added.

Eyebrow transplant

Technically, an eyebrow transplant is not much different from a beard transplant.

Although the number of hair follicles to be grafted is not high, the procedure requires great care in order for the procedure to be performed with great precision.

The direction of hair growth of all transplanted hairs must be coordinated and harmonious, so that they are compatible with each other. We must not forget that the follicles are removed from the nape of the neck, so they keep growing.

For this reason, the eyebrows need to be trimmed regularly. A patient who wishes to perform an eyebrow transplant should be aware of the need for such minor maintenance. Another important point that deserves to be highlighted is that the transplant does not require the need for hospitalization, although it does require some post-operative care.

– Surgery for women

Hair transplant surgery can be performed on both men and women who suffer from baldness. The operation can be done at any level, going through some variations due to the existing changes between the sexes.

Differences between female and male baldness:

– Female pattern baldness:

Hair loss among females is a reality. Although there is a predominance of male pattern baldness, there are some women who also suffer from this problem.

Some doctors estimate that 1 in 5 women have some degree of hair loss, which is usually caused by aging, illness or hormonal changes after menopause.

Female pattern baldness is caused mainly by hormonal disorders of genetic origin where testosterone predominates, known as Androgenetic Alopecia – also responsible for baldness in men. Usually, the region most affected is the upper part of the head (crown). Fortunately, the loss is not total, but depending on the degree of thinning, it is possible to see the scalp completely, covered only by a few thinner hairs.

In our clinic, using laser technology, we offer thickening treatment for this region of the crown for women.

Beard transplant

The beard transplant is done through extensions in the hair follicle.

These extensions are bag-like structures, which are located in the hypodermis (deep layer of the skin). Within these layers are the roots of the hair shaft. Each hair follicle has the capacity to produce and grow hair strands, with 90% producing one hair at a time and 10% producing two or more strands at the same time. 

How many follicles will be transplanted?

The procedure will be done according to the required density. Depending on the amount of hair present in the donor area, we will do our best to cover everything in just one session. However, it does not depend on our team or your will. If you have the appropriate follicles with several strands present, we can place up to 6,000 follicles, making almost 15,000 strands in one session. The evaluation will give a more adequate idea on this point.

If the donor part is insufficient to provide the necessary number of follicles, can they be used by those in the pectoral region?

In this situation, the hair would be used to fill the posterior part. If the donor part does not have enough threads, we can use the breast threads. But the preference is to use the wires from part of the head, because the wires transplanted from other points of the body may fall in the future.

Can wires be transplanted from one person to another?

No. Although it is not impossible to transplant hair between individuals, the chances are high that this action will generate future complications, since the implanted hairs will be seen as foreign elements by the body and will be rejected by the body.

What is the interval between hair transplant procedures?

 We recommend an interval between 8-12 months after the first procedure. Visual signs of hair growth allow the surgeon to transplant new grafts more accurately.

Will I feel pain during the surgery?

The patient will feel pain only at the time of injection of anesthesia. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. Being the skin anesthetized, there will be no pain or discomfort during the hair transplant operation. Complete sedation is not allowed.

Is hair transplantation also a good option for women?

With modern transplantation techniques, many women who face hair loss are now candidates for the operation. The main factors are a dense and healthy donor area and the patient’s expectations of results.

Why Mini Micro extractor FUE?

With the FUE Mini Micro Extractor, doctors can maintain control of the donor area, so that we can preserve and use the donor area as effectively as possible without damaging it or leaving any trace of the extraction. micro-bike equipment, With 0.6 or 0.7 mm diameter micro-punch (because of this expression, you will not feel the pain and nobody will notice that you were operated on right after 48 hours after surgery).

Is the growth of transplanted grafts in mega sessions affected?

Only an experienced team performs this surgery after the evaluation. Mega-sessions provide excellent density, coverage and natural results, but it is not an option for all patients.

What are the conditions of the clinics for the operation?

The first thing the clinic will ask for are photos of the affected region. They make a visual assessment to see the conditions and analyze whether the technique is the most suitable for your body and your condition.

If the person has any Cardiovascular Disease, and what is it?

If the person has advanced diabetes,

If the person has had any surgery in the past, do you have to report what it was?

If the person has an HIV virus, (it is not operated without authorization from relatives & family)

If the person has a keloid problem, and at what level?

If the person has any allergies,

If the person has a blood clotting problem, and at what level.

Is post-operative hair loss normal?

Transplanted hair loss is common after transplantation. It can start from the first week after the postoperative and can continue for up to six weeks. It is a normal issue and should not be a cause for concern. It is normal and occurs to everyone.

After a second or third week, these hairs will fall out. Depending on the case, it may not fall as well. But in general 70% or 80% of transplanted hair will fall out.

In the first two months, you may have the feeling that hair will not grow after you fall. However, after the third month, the new strands are already beginning to be born. In the sixth month, 70% of the transplanted hair will be visible, and by the eighth month, the result will reach 80% or 90%.

The complete result will appear one year after the procedure. In the case of men, the transplanted hair does not fall out.

Why don’t the transplanted threads fall out?

There are basically two types of hair: those that have the genetic code for baldness and those that don’t.

The micro implant transplants a healthy unit that maintains this characteristic throughout life.

How long do I need to rest after the hair transplant?

There is no need for rest.

There will be no swelling or scarring. Swelling can be prevented by using the prescribed medications.

A “crust” will probably be visible for 10 days after the postoperative period.

I need to wear a cap at my workplace. After the surgery, how long should I use it?

You must take care of the surgery for at least 20 days. In 20 days, the transplanted hair is already rooted. That is why every answer is individual and we have to see the case.

How can we perform hair transplantation?

We created a video and an explanatory post that talks step by step about everything about the procedure HERE

Watch my video where I answer common questions:

Is the operation dangerous?

This is a frequently asked question. The advanced technique of replantation does not leave large scars, but punctate scars, which are easier for recovery.

Do not worry! The clinic will be responsible for all necessary examinations prior to surgery.


Which technique is used?

The FUE technique is used, which consists of removing follicles from the donor region and placing them in the baldness area. 

How long does the surgery take?

It lasts on average 6-8 hours, but it can be faster or longer, depending on the conditions and number of follicles.

How many follicles are reimplanted per section?

It depends on the donor area and the affected area. The surgeon will analyze your conditions are good for a long section, but can range from 2000 to 5500 follicles. There are people who have to do more than one section because the area of baldness is greater.

Perfect surgery performed

It is one of the clinics that we work in Turkey for hair transplant surgery. The cost of the surgery package at this clinic is USD 1900 per person. The costs of hosting the companion of the person who is going to have the surgery is already included in the package price until the companion shares the same room with the person.

Will smoking affect my FUE hair transplant operation?

Smoking causes decreased blood flow to the scalp, contributing to poor wound healing. We do not recommend.


What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?

PRP is an autologous blood plasma preparation with platelets. Contains growth factors and other proteins that assist in wound healing. To prepare it, 10 to 20 cc of the patient’s blood are placed in a centrifuge that separates the solid from the liquid components. We also use the patient’s plasma to store the grafts until they are transplanted into the scalp, or injecting PRP into the scalp before the grafts are placed.

How are follicles stored?

Follicle storage is one of the main support techniques for follicle survival. We use a storage solution composed of HypoThermosol, Liposomal ATP and patient plasma.

These elements have two benefits: reduction of graft stress during storage and avoiding cell deficiency during and after graft storage. In addition, we use a storage device that cools grafts from 0C to 4C and maintains that temperature.

 After the surgery, how long will it take until I see the results?

It takes 7-8 months to start seeing a cosmetic difference.

In the first two months, you may have the feeling that hair will not grow after falls.

After the third month, the new threads start to be born.

Are there any complications associated with the procedure?

As the placement incisions are small, the risk of postoperative infection is almost zero. You will probably experience a little redness and perhaps some slight swelling in the treatment area.

How long does the procedure take?

The duration of the operation depends on the number of wires required. Typically, surgeries do not take more than 8 hours. In the case of DHI it can take between 14-15 hours. However, as there is not much difference between the result of FUE and DHI, we prefer to use the most practical and efficient technique – FUE.

DHI is a recommended solution for those who do not want to shave their hair or make an opening in the receptive bed.

Doctor explains frontline planning


Should I schedule the procedure in advance?

We can say that tomorrow we are already able to close the trip. But we can also say that in six months, we will not have vacancies. For this reason, we recommend that you schedule your ticket with us according to the availability of the clinic.

We recommend that you book the program two months in advance.

– Male pattern baldness:

In the vast majority of cases, baldness occurs due to genetics and causes a progressive hair loss that can reach 95% of the head area after 80 years of age. However, there are cases in which baldness manifests early in men over 20 years old.

Male pattern baldness (technically called Androgenetic Alopecia) affects approximately 50% of individuals during their lives.

The individual may have inherited sensitivity to DHT (dihydrotestosterone). High levels of DHT contribute to hair loss, interrupting the life cycle of the hair follicle in sensitive areas of the scalp. The frontal line and the altarpiece are the first areas usually affected.

In our clinic, from any age, you can carry out your assessment on the situation of your baldness to determine the restoration plan with hair transplant surgery.

Before surgery, we must fill out a form with the patient where we will ask the following questions (the patient must be frank in these answers).

FUE Hair Transplant Technique

What is the FUE Technique?

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is an innovative hair transplant technique, minimally invasive, without the need for hospitalization and with a very short recovery time.

The technique consists of manually extracting the follicular units from wire to wire directly from the donor area of ​​the scalp (sides and posterior of the head and neck mainly) using millimeter instruments that have sharp cylindrical edges (micro bikes). After the cut, the follicular units are removed from the scalp with the aid of extremely delicate forceps, replacing them in the bald area, without leaving visible scars. These small lesions are minuscule, so one of the advantages of the FUE method is that healing is extremely fast and there is no need for stitches at the site. Scars are also avoided.

Our clinic in Turkey values ​​to reach the largest number of follicles for transplantation. The goal is to perform a successful hair transplant in the first session. The conditions of each patient are individual and at this moment, the situation of the donor part is very determining to reach the maximum of follicles.

Hair transplant procedure

After removal of the donor area, the follicular units, the hair strand and their follicular families will be stored under saline cooled to 4 ° C below zero. Then, the wires are transplanted into the bald area with a 0.5 mm blade, special needles or microsurgery forceps.

These delicate instruments are important for naturalness and density.

The procedure is done with surgical loupes, as the structures are small and delicate – the smaller the hole to place the grafts, the smaller the residual scar. Consequently, the scar will not be evident to the naked eye. In addition, the method allows transplanting several grafts per 2 cm.

The strands are transplanted, one by one, in the frontal hair line, providing naturalness followed by the following strands where we want more volume. The hair and its respective hair follicles are respected, that is, the transplant does not harm the existing follicles.

As the follicles are the person’s own, there is no rejection of the organism.

It is impossible to use donor follicles, as they would die over time.

The vast majority of grafts integrate and develop, if the surgery is performed by trained teams and performed with the appropriate equipment.

The technique delivers rooted hair in 10-20 days. After the second or third week, these hairs will fall out. Depending on the case, it may not fall as well. But in general 70% or 80% of transplanted hair falls out during this period. In the first two months, you may have the feeling that hair will not grow after falls.

In the third month, the new threads start to be born. In the sixth month, 70% of the transplanted hair will be visible, reaching between 80% – 90% of visibility in the eighth month. The complete result appears at the end of a year. In the case of men, the transplanted hair no longer falls out.

Sapphire Blade is a new step in opening channels to start hair transplantation. With this facility, the patient does not see injuries due to the opening of funds. In the case of our clinic, new equipment is used by each patient. Some clinics use the same blade after sterilization but we prefer to use only one instrument for each surgery due to the sharpness of each sapphire.

– Implant

The implant is an artificially elaborated material that is inserted or grafted into an organic structure and becomes an integral part of it.

Examples of implant are: dental prosthesis, silicone prosthesis, etc.

The word hair implant would only be correct if it were referring to the implant of synthetic threads.


Hair transplantation is a minimal risk and very safe procedure.

Significant complications are extremely rare. Some patients refer to a “tension” in the donor area between one or two days. In this case, the doctor will prescribe a pain reliever to relieve the sensation.

The scar of the donor area due to the removal of the donor skin is usually very narrow and can be easily hidden by the surrounding hair.

The grafted sites in the frontal recipient area evolve without leaving visible scars and are covered by the transplanted hair.

In some patients, a larger or smaller swelling may occur on the forehead, in the first days, but it should not cause concern, as it disappears shortly afterwards with the use of cold or icy compresses.

Some patients report a small area of numbness above the donor incision and in the central area of the scalp for a few months. There is no loss of sensitivity, if it occurs, it will be momentary.

Small scabs form over each graft. They can be camouflaged by the pre-existing hair combed over them.

Even after surgery, the point the patient will experience will be local anesthesia that will take a few weeks.

The transplanted hair seems to grow, but soon comes off the scalp; the roots, however, remain in a dormant state for 03 months, when then the new hair begins to grow.

Small inflammations can occasionally occur around a newly transplanted follicle and are similar to an ingrown hair or spine. They usually regress spontaneously or with the use of hot compresses. If it persists, the doctor with the proper use of sterile instruments assists in the birth of hair.
