Hair Transplant Turkey

Hair transplant turkey, is the process of transferring the hair follicles extracted from the nape of the neck, which is called the donor area, to the areas with hair loss problems.

Who is suitable for hair transplant?

The cause of hair loss should be well investigated. If the hair loss problem is caused by genetic reasons, hair transplant should be preferred. There is no other treatment for hair loss problem, which is caused by genetic reasons, other than hair transplant.

Apart from genetic reasons, hair loss caused by external factor can be eliminated with supportive treatments. With the tests that must be done before the operation, it can be easily determined if the cause of hair loss is genetic or an external factor.

Is scalp care necessary before hair transplant?

After performing the necessary tests and making sure that there are no obstacles to the operation, the recipient area, the hair transplant technique to be used, the number of grafts to be studied and similar parameters are evaluated. No additional care is required before the operation. The postoperative schedule will be followed by your doctor.

What are the hair transplant methods?

Today, although there are sub-branches, there are two different extraction methods and two different hair transplant methods.

In the extraction;

  •  FUE technique
  •  FUT Technique

In the transplant;

  •   DHI technique
  •   FUE Sapphire Method

In the FUE technique, the hair follicles in groups in the donor area are collected by means of a special apparatus and a micromotor. The amount of hair loss of the person and the quality of the donor area are analyzed in the computer environment before the operation.

Determined hair follicles are removed without disturbing the integrity of the tissue. Since the integrity of the tissue is not disturbed, there is no scar or mark after the operation. In a short time like 10 days, the donor area recovers completely and the person can return to their social life.

FUT hair transplant

In the FUT technique, a finger-width piece of tissue is removed from between the two ears and the grafts are separated. The number of follicles that can be obtained is very limited. Due to the scar that will form between the two ears after the operation, it is not a preferred method of removal today. This scar is permanent and continues to bother the person constantly.

How to do a hair transplant?

When it comes to the placement part, the objective of both hair transplant techniques is to transfer the hair follicles taken from the donor area with the FUE method to the recipient area in the healthiest way.

The main difference between the two hair transplant techniques is that in the sapphire channel technique, the sites where the grafts will be placed are prepared in advance and then transferred to the open channels with the help of a special apparatus, while in In the Dhi technique, the preparation and placement of the grafts are carried out at the same time.

It should be known that there are positive and negative methods in both techniques. The planning carried out is taken as a basis when choosing the hair transplant method to use. Within planning, one technique may be more effective than another.

Is the sapphire channel hair transplant method or the Dhi hair transplant method better?

Although the objective of the two hair transplant techniques is to ensure the healthiest transfer of the roots collected from the donor area with the FUE method, one technique can be more effective than the other depending on the planning that is done from time to time.

To briefly explain;

In the sapphire channel hair transplant method, directions for the hair can be given more effectively as the hand never leaves the transplant area. While this sapphire channel is the positive aspect of the hair transplant method, the negative aspect of the technique is that it can damage existing hair follicles due to the sharpness of the sapphire tips used.

If the hair loss problem is completely solved in the recipient area or if it is thought that the existing hair follicles will fall out in the near future, the sapphire channel method will be effective because the directions for the hair can be given more easily effective.

The tips used in the DHI hair transplant technique are not cutting tips but piercing tips. Therefore, if there are hair follicles to protect in the recipient area, more effective protection can be achieved compared to the sapphire channel method.

Although this is the positive aspect of the DHI technique, since the implanter pens used are disposable, the hand is separated from the transplant area in each transfer while the directions of the hair are given, so the imbalance of the directions of the hair is the negative aspect of this technique.

If there are hair follicles to protect in the recipient area, the existing hair follicles can be protected more effectively with the DHI hair transplant technique.

What are the stages of hair transplant?

Although the logic of the stages in the operation does not change, the way in which it is carried out varies according to the technique used.

If the sapphire channel hair transplant technique is used;

The hair follicles, which are analyzed in the computer environment before the operation, are extracted from the donor area one by one with the FUE technique, without damaging the donor area. Subsequently, the places where the extracted roots will be placed are prepared one by one using sapphire points (according to the number, quality and planning made).

These prepared recesses are called ‘channels’, hence the name of the sapphire channel technique. After the preparation of the places is completed, the collected roots are placed in the prepared places with a special apparatus called a clamp, and the operation is completed in this way.

In the DHI choi-pen implanter hair transplant technique, unlike the sapphire channel hair transplant technique, the preparation and placement of the grafts is done at the same time. As in the sapphire channel technique, the roots, which are analyzed and determined in the computer environment before the operation, are collected one by one with the FUE technique.

Then, with the help of a special device called a choi-pen or implanter pen used in the DHI hair transplant technique, both places are prepared and placed at the same time. Hence the name of the DHI technique. It means ‘direct hair implantation’.

With which hair transplant technique can you obtain more density?

Another question that many people who investigate are wondering is the density of hair transplant. It is generally thought that the density changes depending on the technique used in the operation, but this idea is not correct. Due to the use of the latest technology and the most compatible device with human tissue in both techniques, the density of hairs in the operation does not change depending on the technique used.

The main factors that determine density are;

Planning of the doctor who performs the operation,

Quality of the donor area.

There are also two important factors regarding the quality of the donor area. The first one is the number of hair follicles in cm2 and how many cm2 the donor area consists of, and the other is the thickness of a single hair. Some people have fine hair, while others have thicker hair. The thickness of the hair is a genetic factor and is one of the main factors that influences the density in the transplant, the thicker the hair, the greater the density in the transplant.

Do you feel pain or pain during the hair transplant operation?

Regardless of the technique used, the entire procedure is performed under local anesthesia using painless anesthesia devices. A person’s consciousness is clear except when he sleeps voluntarily. No pain is felt during or after the operation.

What is sedation? Do I have to have sedation?

During local anesthesia in sedation hair transplant, the person falls asleep halfway and wakes up after anesthesia. With the advent of painless anesthesia devices, sedation has become an undesirable method.

Is the hair transplant operation comfortable?  

Contrary to popular belief, thanks to the technologies used, the person does not feel any pain during the hair transplant operation. During the operation, they can optionally watch TV, listen to music, read a book or sleep. Along with planned breaks (such as lunch breaks), a necessary break can be given when requested (such as to go to the bathroom, drink water) according to the person’s request.

Who does the hair transplant and where?

In the beginning, the issues that need to be considered are who will perform the hair transplant operation and where the operation will be performed. In order not to find a bad surprise, a good investigation should be done before the operation, references should be taken from people who have had a hair transplant operation before, the person who will perform the operation should be personally interviewed, and the place where the operation will take place must be seen. Since we will have to bear the consequences of a bad experience for the rest of our lives, maximum attention must be paid before the operation.

How long does hair transplant take?

The duration of the operation can vary depending on many variables such as the number of grafts, the size of the recipient area and the quality of the donor area. After an average of 8-9 hours of operation, there is no situation that requires hospitalization. The person is discharged the same day. The person can return to his social life directly.

How many days should I reserve for the hair transplant operation?

It will be enough to set aside one day for the operation. The same day the hair transplant operation is completed and the person is discharged. A direct return to social life can be achieved, but the implanted area must be protected against external factors, especially in the first 10 days. Subsequently, the hair healing process is completed and the person can return to their social life.

When is the result of the hair transplant seen?

Although it varies depending on the person’s metabolism and the supportive treatments applied after the operation, the scabs are generally eliminated by the tenth day. After removal, the person will have an image of having their hair cut to a number one.

There is no disturbing image and a return to social life can be achieved. In the next 2-3 weeks, the process called crashing begins and the transferred hair falls out rapidly. This loss is temporary and new hair growth begins towards the end of the fourth month.

Intense hair growth begins in the 6 -7 months range and continues throughout the year. It will take up to a year to get the final result. Subsequently, no new hair growth or loss occurs. Existing hair continues to live with the person throughout their life.

How to wash hair after hair transplant?

After the operation, washing is carried out using a specially prepared washing kit consisting of foam and shampoo for 10 days. The first day is the control day. Washing is not done. On the second day, the hair wash begins.

The point to consider is the protection of the implanted area against impacts and friction during the washing process. While the washing process can be done with the help of one person, it can easily be done alone.

The washing products used are in foam form and are very easy to use. During this period, the implanted area must be protected from impacts and abrasions. First, the scabs are softened with the help of softening foam.

The goal here is to create an area of movement for the hair by smoothing out the crusts. Subsequently, shampoo is applied to clean the remains of foam that remain and clean the implanted area of external factors to which we are exposed all day.

After applying the shampoo, rinse with warm water without pressure and pat dry. This process can be done once a day, at any time of the day that is available. The important thing is that the washes are done at approximately the same time.

This process continues for 10 days. At the end of the 10th day, the hair is fully attached to the weave and you can return to your normal washing routine.

What is the age limit for hair transplant?

Although there is no clear age limit, it is not recommended for very young or older ages. Since the map of hair loss can change in the transplant at a very young age, the person may find a bad appearance at later ages.

Hair transplant operation is not recommended due to chronic diseases that may occur at later ages.

Does hair transplant really work?

Although hair loss is mainly due to genetic reasons in women and men today, it is one of the most common problems due to stress, irregular diet, irregular life, use of cosmetics, etc. and negatively affects social life. In problems experienced due to an external factor the problem of hair loss can be eliminated with supportive treatments such as,

  • Otolog Treatment with Stem Cells
  •  Infusion treatment
  •  Capillar laser
  •  Capillar mesotherapy
  •  The care sets. There is no other treatment method to obtain a permanent solution other than hair transplantation in hair loss caused by genetic reasons. Although it may seem like a difficult operation at first because it is after a long operation, it is often preferred due to the technologies used, the painless procedure and the short time it takes to return to social life.

What months are suitable for hair transplant?

Although the general opinion is that the winter months are more suitable for hair transplant, the season does not have a direct effect on the growth of new hair.

There is no such parameter, since seasonal conditions can change depending on where a person lives. Since the problem of hair loss negatively affects our social life, regardless of whether it is a woman or a man, the earliest time to have surgery will be the most effective time for people, since our routine is based on daily.

Generally, people think that it will be very difficult after the operation, but under the current conditions, it has become very comfortable after the operation. After the operation, people can go about their daily lives. The hardest part is the psychological and physical pressure experienced before the operation.

How many years does hair transplant last?

Hair transplant is the only method that people with genetic hair loss can apply to obtain a permanent result with current technology. As the donor area is genetically coded not to fall out, the transferred hair follicles do not fall out again unless the person experiences a specific situation (such as long-term treatment, heavy drug use, cancer treatment).

What is a follicle? How many hairs does a follicle have?

In the hair-follicle dilemma, which is one of the most curious topics, the general opinion is that 1 follicle corresponds to 1 hair, but this is a misunderstood situation. A hair can come out of a follicle, or several hairs can come out.

Regardless of whether you are a man or a woman, the hair remains in groups in the nape of the neck, which we call the donor area. While some groups have 1 or 2, some groups have more hair follicles. Although it varies from person to person, the donor area that has groups of 3 or more hair follicles is considered a quality donor area.

In the FUE stage, which is the first stage of the operation, the goal is to target more multiple roots. Depending on the person’s donor site grouping, your doctor selects the device to be used in the FUE procedure. The more multiple grafts that can be extracted, the more intense the result will be.

How is the number of follicles determined? How many follicles do I need?

Although the analysis of the donor area is carried out in a computerized environment before the hair transplant operation, it is not possible to determine a precise number of grafts.

The anticipated number of grafts; The condition of the hair tissue can vary depending on many factors, such as the structure of the hair follicles and the composition of the donor area. During the extraction of hair follicles carried out with the FUE method, the planning is carried out in two main parameters depending on the situation of the donor area.

 If the extracted hair follicles can be collected as multiples, if the condition of the donor area allows multiple follicles to be collected, the number of follicles in a transplant is focused on increasing the number of hair follicles according to the planning made for the recipient area, with an adequate selection of tips, to avoid residues remaining in the donor area after the operation.

Instead of how many grafts are transplanted, the main factor that determines the success of the hair transplant operation is how many hairs are transferred.

With this study, the desired density is obtained by transferring the number of hairs necessary within the scope of the planning carried out, and the image disorder that can be produced by applying optimal stress in the donor area is avoided.

If the extracted hair follicles cannot be collected as multiples, if the condition of the donor area does not allow the collection of multiple follicles, then an attempt is made to increase the number of hairs collected by increasing the number of follicles within the planning made for the recipient area with a smaller tip selection, to avoid any trace in the donor area after the operation.

In this case, the density after the operation can be obtained in the form of more grafts and more hair.

Although in the analyzes carried out before the hair transplant operation an idea of the state of the donor area is obtained, the number of follicles to be studied is defined when the operation begins.

To briefly summarize,

The number of hairs needed for a dense appearance after the operation;

  •   It can be achieved by trying to increase the number of roots in a follicle,
  •   It can be achieved by increasing the number of follicles.

   The route to choose can be decided according to the condition of the donor area.

What are the advantages of hair transplant?

 Hair loss, especially in men and usually caused by genetic reasons, seriously affects people’s social life. Any hair problem, which has an important place in terms of aesthetics, leads to loss of self-confidence. Although not directly aware, the person with loss of self-confidence will experience negative effects in their normal life. Since these problems will disappear after the hair transplant, there will be a positive increase in the person’s social life.

Hair transplant results

Many clinics share before and after photos through social media with the permission of people who have had hair transplant operations before. Social media channels can be actively used in pre and post hair transplant research. Shared photos can give people an idea before the operation. You can analyze which clinic is more successful in what type of fall.

The point to consider is not to look only at the angle of the profile when evaluating the success of the operation, but to make an evaluation considering all angles.

Because while many people are satisfied with their appearance at the profile angle, they are uncomfortable with their appearance in the middle and top or donor area. For this reason, more care should be taken when evaluating clinics that share using only profile angles, and clinics that share results with all angles should be preferred.

Hair transplant prices 2022

There are many parameters that determine the price of the operation. Different clinics may apply different procedures (price per graft, planning according to the size of the recipient area, fixed price application). Although the issue of price is an important issue, it is necessary to agree on the parameters that should be evaluated first.

Clinical references, meeting with the person who will perform the hair transplant operation before the operation, clinical controls are some of the issues that must be discussed before the price. Thinking that it will be better when it is more expensive or worse when it is more expensive. cheap is not good.

I had the operations with Medpoint on 27th April 2022. The operation took around 12 hours and the team was working with high precision and patience. Also the team was very caring and you could easily communicate with the team thanks to the translator, Luca. After the operations, I was in touch with the team through WhatsApp and I could ask my questions easily and was getting the answers quickly. The team provides hotel and taxi as well to make it more convenient. After 10-14 days I could see very good results. Overally, I’m happy with Medpoint and recommend it.

I had my transplant with Medpoint on the 1.04.22 & I'm very happy with my progress so far. Having done alot of research on a number of clinics I decided to choose Medpoint having witnessed some of their results first hand. I would like to thank Dr Murat & his team for their professionalism & great care in undertaking my transplant. I would also like to thank Melda my host for all her assistance & continued support. Any queries were promptly answered by her & almost a month later herself & Dr Murat are in constant contact with me ensuring my recovery is as smooth as possible. I fully recommend this clinic & look forward to seeing my final result.
