Hair loss is one of the most common problems people have in the modern age. Today, between 50-100 hair strand loss per day is considered normal. However, more than this amount causes sparseness and even baldness. Hair transplantation is a permanent solution for these problems.
What is Hair Transplantation?
The hair transplant application is done to prevent sparseness or baldness problems, in order to make the patient have a more aesthetic look. The hair transplantation is a micro surgical operation by applying local anesthesia. The application must be done by a specialist in the field.

How is the Hair Transplantation Applied?
FUE Hair Transplantation is applied as transferring hair follicles from the nape area, which we call the donor area. The hair follicles are extracted one by one and put into a special solution. Then, channels are opened at the bald area to put the grafts in. The most important thing to pay attention to is the direction of the grafts, in order to have the most natural look. After the channels are opened, the hair follicles which were kept in the special solution, are transferred one by one to the area with the FUE technique.
FUE Hair Transplantation
FUE was started to be generally used in 2005. It is accepted as the gold standard of hair transplantation. The FUE technique guarantees you the natural hair look.
The most important difference of the FUE compared to the other techniques, it does not leave any scar behind and it heals pretty fast. The operation gets more successful with the quality of the tools which are used. There are several types of FUE:
• Classic FUE
• DHI Hair Transplant
• Sapphire FUE
Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant
Sapphire FUE is applied with sapphire points which developed in recent years and guarantees success. This is because sapphire is the smoother material and channels are opened with sapphire pointed needles, they are micro channels and they heal faster, leaving less scar.
DHI Hair Transplant
It stands for Direct Hair Implantation, applied with a Choi Pen. Opening channels and implanting hair follicles take place at the same time. The hair follicles contact less with the outer environment, causing grafts to stay healthier.
Classic FUE Hair Transplant
Hair follicles are eluted and added to the opened channels by our specialists.
How Long Does the Hair Transplant Take?
The application takes approximately 5-6 hours and local anesthesia is applied, instead of general anesthesia.
Is the Hair Transplant Application Painful?
Pain level of the application is so low. The sedation is only applied to the patients who have high levels of anxiety. It is not an application to be feared or worried about.
How Many Days are Required for the Hair Transplantation?
Only 3 days are enough to get the application done. It takes 10 days in total to complete.
• On the first day, hair transplantation and Prt (Platelet-rich Plasma) treatment are applied to the patient.
• Second day, our specialists check if there is any damage to the hair scalp.
• Third day, a special solution is applied to the patient’s hair at our clinic and washed by professionals after waiting a little.
• You can wash your hair yourself at home in the next few days.
• After the seventh wash, scabs fall out completely.
• On the 10th day, redness caused from the hair transplantation starts to decrease. After 6 months, you see the permanent results of the application.
