Things you should know before your Hair Transplant in Istanbul

Things you should know before your Hair Transplant in Turkey

  • Hair transplant surgery is possible for both men and women.
  • Hair transplantation solves the problem of 85% of patients with hair loss in a single session.
  • One visit to Istanbul is sufficient for the hair transplant procedure.
  • For the success of the procedure and a natural look, the doctor's touch in hair transplant is of great importance.
  • If the hair transplant surgery is not done properly, it can look unnatural and even damage the surrounding hair. 
  • The importance of good quality hair transplant becomes especially clear in the following years. It is very important that the hairs are transplanted one by one so that they do not fall out in places and look patchy later.
  • Many patients place the sole focus on the clinic, the attending doctor or the price when researching and booking hair transplant treatment. However, an often underestimated aspect is the stuff that takes care of the patient during the whole process.They play an equally crucial role as the doctor. If you are lucky enough to be taken care of by a good, fully dedicated staff, you can expect your hair transplant to be a greater success. A small gift to the staff, such as chocolates, can already ensure that you receive a little extra attention and full dedication from your assistant and the staff.

Procedure of Hair Transplant Surgery in Turkey/ Istanbul:

Before your hair transplant surgery in Turkey, you will be asked to send in pictures of your hair and your medical history. During an online consultation with your surgeon, you will talk about your expectations, your options, the risks and benefits of the procedure, as well as the aftercare.

Once you arrive in Istanbul, you will meet your medical consultant. Your surgeon will examine your scalp to determine the degree of hair loss. Together, you will decide how many grafts you need and which hair transplant method is best for your particular case.

The hair transplant is usually scheduled for the next day. Remember to come to the clinic on an empty stomach. A blood test will be performed and after another consultation you will be prepared for the procedure.

Hair transplantation is a cosmetic procedure performed under local anesthesia. Depending on the number of grafts required, the procedure can take between 6 and 8  hours. The procedure steps vary depending on the technique used. Generally, the first step in a regular FUE hair transplant is to extract donor hair from one or more areas of the body. Typically, the back of the scalp or the sides are chosen for this purpose.

After the surgeon has taken the largest possible number of these healthy hair follicles, also called grafts, from the donor site and placed them in a special PRP solution, he or she creates tiny holes in the area plagued by hair loss in order to relocate the grafts there.

In almost all cases, you can be discharged the same day as the procedure. The next day, you will come back to the clinic for a final check-up, where your doctor will inform you about the follow-up care.

It is possible to continue with your normal daily life as usual but take it easy for at least 1 or 2 days after the procedure. For the first 2 or 3 days, you may see small pink dots. However, these will disappear within a week.

Types of Hair Transplant:

Follicular unit transplantation

1. FUT (Follicular unit transplantation) Technique

This procedure is also called strip surgery. In this technique, a thin strip of donor skin with healthy hair is removed from the back of the head using a scalpel. After that the surgeon places the grafts on the desired area.

The surgeon closes the incision site with stitches, and a fine scar is left behind, which is usually covered by hair.

Due to new developments in the field of hair transplant in recent years, the FUT technique is no longer favored. 

Follicular unit excision

2. FUE (follicular unit excision) Technique:

The FUE technique is the most widely used hair transplant techniquein the world. It doesn’t require an incision and does not leave a linear hair transplant scar like the FUT method, but only tiny, less obvious dots. That’s why, this method is considered more popular and comfortable for the patient.

In this technique, donor hairs are taken one by one directly from the scalp and placed in a special solution. The surgeon then makes microscopic slits in the desired location to place the grafts.

With this method, a large number of grafts (up to 4000) can be extracted and transplanted in a single session. In addition, donor hair can also be harvested from the back, chest or beard using this method. However, this procedure is more expensive because the individual hairs are removed one by one.

There are different types of FUE methods. See below the most popular ones:

  • Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant: With Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation, pens with ends made from real sapphire blades are used instead of the regular steel slits, resulting in much smaller slits than in other FUE techniques. This in turn leads to a shorter recovery time.Sapphire FUE hair transplantation method can achieve an extremely natural look when it is done well, and is therefore very popular.
  • No Shave FUE: In FUE, the surgeon normally shaves the donor area before extracting the hair. Therefore, especially women and men who want hair transplant without shaving their head choose the No Shave FUE method.
  • Maxi Graft FUE: Maxi Graft FUE is mostly preferred by patients who need a high number of grafts. With this method, 3500 and 5500 grafts can be transplanted. On average, the procedure takes 1 hour longer than other FUE techniques.
  • High Volume FUE: This method is especially suitable for patients with thinning hair. The grafts are placed to fill the bald areas between existing hair.
Direct Hair Transplantation

3. DHI (Direct Hair Transplantation) Technique

The DHI method is the newest hair transplantation technique and very similar to the FUE method. However, the grafts are extracted one by one with the help of a Choi implanter pen and afterwards transplanted directly to the desired area.

DHI hair transplant method provides a high rate for achieving higher density. Another advantage is that it doesn’t require the recipient area to be shaved. This method is the most expensive hair transplant technique.

How much is Hair Transplant in Turkey?

  • The cost of hair transplant in Turkey depends on the experience of the surgeon, the hair transplant technique and the number of grafts needed. The prices for FUE hair transplantation in Istanbul range from 1500 to 3000€.
