Hair Transplant in Istanbul

What Is a Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant is the process of transplanting new hair follicles to the balding area in the head area. However, it is one of the most effective and permanent treatment methods for the problem of hair loss. Your doctor must be very experienced for this treatment to be successful.

However, we recommend that you have this procedure done in very high quality and approved health centers. Because your chance of achieving successful results in hair transplant under the stairs is very low. For this reason, we recommend that you be sure of the quality and awareness of the center where you will have the procedure.

Types of Hair Transplant in Istanbul

There are two techniques frequently used in hair transplantation procedures in Istanbul. These are FUE hair transplantation and DHI hair transplant techniques. You’ll decide together with your doctor which of these techniques you need.

DHI Hair Transplant

DHI hair transplant is performed using special devices called “implanter pen”. It is also one of the most advanced hair transplantation methods. It stands for Direct Hair Implantation. One of the most important reasons why the DHI technique has come to the fore in recent years is that it is a two-stage method that does not open an incision. In other hair transplantation techniques, hair transplantation, which is performed in three stages as graft collection, canal opening and graft transplantation, is carried out with two basic stages as graft collection and graft transplantation using the DHI method. The most important factor in reducing hair restoration to two stages is the use of implanter pen devices.

FUE Hair Transplant

FUE hair transplant is the removal of healthy hair follicles by a method called FUE and transfer to the balding area. The FUE method, which is a technique that has been applied since 2004, is a technique that is extremely open to technological developments and has continued to be developed since the day it was implemented. In the FUE technique, the hair follicles are taken one by one from the back of the hair, which is called the “donor area”, with the help of 0.7-1 mm micro motor tips and sutured to the area where the hair is sparse. Each root removed from the “donor area” contains 2 or 3 hair cells, and these units are called grafts. How much graft each patient will need is decided by your doctor during the examination to be performed before the operation.

Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant

Sapphire FUE hair transplant (follicular unit extraction) is the realization of the channel opening stage of the FUE hair transplantation technique, which is frequently preferred in the world in this field, with tips produced from sapphire, which is a very valuable substance. In the Sapphire FUE hair transplantation technique, hair follicles are collected again by using the FUE technique. However, the channels to the area where the hair transplantation will be performed are not opened with steel as in the FUE method, but with sapphire ore in the form of a pencil. Sapphire tips allow microchannels to be opened in the area where the planting will be done, much smaller, smoother and more frequent than steel. Micro-level opening of the channels minimizes tissue deformation and reduces crusting. Thus, after the application, the scalp heals quickly and there are no visible scars.

What You Should Pay Attention to Before Hair Transplant in Istanbul

Before you come to Istanbul before hair transplant, make sure you take everything you need with you. However, we recommend that you have a relative or friend with you. Because you may need someone to help you in the process after the procedure. You must have some cash with you for changing countries. Because sometimes there may be problems with credit card payments. Therefore, when you encounter a problem, you have cash to avoid being in a difficult situation.

Do not drink alcohol and do not smoking before the procedure. Eat light meals. Since hair transplantation is a procedure that takes more than 6 hours, you will not be able to meet your need to eat for long hours. Therefore, your stomach should be full when entering the procedure. If you are taking blood thinners, you need to discontinue this medicine 15 days before the procedure. Blood thinners cause bleeding during the procedure. Therefore, it is vital that you stop taking the medication.

After Hair Transplant

After the procedure, you will be under the influence of some sedation. Your doctor will give you pain medication so that you do not feel pain. If everything goes well, you move on to your hotel. Normally, you need to stay in Istanbul until the first washing process. Because the first washing process is done in the clinic. After that, the nurses will tell you how to wash your hair. However, if you need to return to your country immediately, we recommend that you have this procedure done in a clinic in your country. Instead, your doctor can describe in detail how to wash your hair. Make sure you understand this process.

You can see the first results after about three months. But you need a year to see the real result. About a year after the procedure, your new hair will grow in a lush and healthy way. Apart from that, in the first week after the procedure, your hair will fall out. This stage is called shock spillage. But don’t worry. This is a situation that happens in the usual course of the process. It’s not unexpected. The shock shedding is completed in about a month, and then your new hair begins to grow.
