What is a Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant is transferring follicular units from a healthy donor area (mostly from the back of the head) to the area suffering from hair loss. The hair follicles at the back of the head are immune from Dihydrotestosterone DHT (the hormone that causes hair loss), thus, they are not subjected to fall off. We can say that the donor follicles are resistant to hair loss, meaning that in the vast majority of cases a hair transplant constitutes a permanent solution for hair loss.

What to Expect from a Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant is the only solution to get natural hair that grows and can be shaped or cut the way you want. However, many men think hair transplant restores their hair to where it was when they were kids. While it gives them the confidence and peace of mind of a 12-year-old boy, it might not restore the same density.


The Techniques of Hair Transplant

There are two main hair transplant techniques available today: DHI and FUE with its derivatives; Manual FUE, Sapphire FUE, Gold FUE, Micro FUE, Percutaneous (Perkutan), Hyper FUE, Soft FUE etc.


FUE is the common technique for hair transplant nowadays, as it allows for the transplantation of the maximum number of grafts. FUE is an excellent all-around technique as it is suitable for the majority of patients. FUE involves extracting individual grafts from the donor area before opening microchannels in the transplanted area and placing the grafts in these channels. The advantage of extracting the grafts individually is that this leaves minimal scarring and leads to a swift recovery time.

DHI is a good technique for creating density in smaller areas, such as the front hairline, and is particularly useful for those seeking a minimal or partial transplant. It involves using an implanter pen to open the channels and position the extracted grafts in one movement. DHI has a faster recovery time than ‘Classic’ FUE but it can only be used for smaller quantities of grafts as it is more time-consuming.

    Frequently Asked Questions about Hair Transplant in Turkey

    The hair follicles at the back of the head are immune from Dihydrotestosterone DHT (the hormone that causes hair loss), thus, they are not subjected to falling off. We can say that the donor follicles are resistant to hair loss, meaning that in the vast majority of cases, a hair transplant constitutes a permanent solution for hair loss.

    You can wash your hair 24 hours after the procedure

    Although that sounds logical, it is impossible. Transferring somebody else’s hair follicles for your hair transplant is inconceivable. Your recipient area could reject somebody’s else grafts and cause serious infection. Hair restoration surgeons do not perform hair transplant operations using another person’s follicles.

    FUE and DHI Hair Transplants do not leave visible scars. The FUT technique leaves a linear scar at the back of the head.


    Most people who undergo hair transplantation processes have good things to say about the kind of results obtained.

    With modern hair transplantation processes, it is now possible for hair loss or hair thinning patients to get a hairline that looks natural and is dense in appearance.

    When performed in ideal circumstances, it has been found that a few doctors have managed to reach 99% graft survival.

    Many people who have undergone hair transplantation surgeries have responded with a resounding yes, for these reasons: Improved appearance Getting more confidence Improving their social media presence Advancement in the professional domain

    There is no limitation on the number of sessions. If there is a limitation, it is actually on the total number of healthy grafts.

    The injection of local anaesthesia can sting slightly, it can be avoided by applying an IV sedation to avoid any kind of pain during the operation.

    No! As a matter of fact, there is no such thing as hair loss insurance.

    The micro, round marks from FUE Hair Transplants are scattered in the donor area, which makes them less likely to be noticed.

    No! A hair transplant does not have any association with cancer.

    It’s not recommended for a certain period. Read More Here
