Hair Transplant in Istanbul

Hair is one of the most influencing characteristics when it comes to appearance! Sadder it is if we start to lose our hair, may it be due to disease, age, or different factors..

HELP! What is the solution to my problem?

Also called hair restoration, hair transplantation, or hair implants, hair transplantation is a cosmetic procedure that involves taking hair from a donor area, most commonly the back or sides of your scalp, and moving it to the recipient area where you experienced hair loss.

Thus, hair transplantation is the most popular baldness treatment in the world due to its simplicity and effectiveness.

Well, let’s take a look at the techniques available!

FUE = In hair transplantation using the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method, hair islands (follicular units; FU) are removed one by one without a linear incision.
It is the removal of islands of hair (follicular unit; FU) with circular incisions from the scalp using 1mm and smaller diameter instruments. The only difference between this method known as Fue Motor and the old method is that the doctor does not have to manually remove the follicular unit.

The basic logic is actually the same and with the new method, the doctor and the patient save a lot more time. The device at the end of the core biopsy pen is connected to a motor and the speed of the motor can be adjusted as desired. The thickness of the tips is changed and tips with the desired lumen diameter are applied according to the donor site. The only advantage of the fue engine is of course not only that you gain time. In addition, thanks to the motor, the tissue depth can be standardized as desired, eliminating the need to continuously control the tissue depth. Another advantage is that with the Fue Engine method, grafts can be taken at more frequent intervals and when the same amount of field scans are compared, more grafts can be removed from the field taken with the engine. Furthermore, an advantage of the motor is that it is less likely to break open grafts with multiple roots, i.e. 2-3 or even 4 roots. In other words, the success of the follicular unit in maintaining its integrity is higher.
For these reasons, it can be said that hair transplantation has become a more comfortable operation thanks to Fue Motors. Although the way the roots are taken is different, the opening of the canals and the stages of transplantation are the same as other methods.
Although now it is healthier and more comfortable with the FUE method, one must know that it is an operation that requires careful attention and very detailed work and experience. One should transplant at the natural growth angle and direction of the hair, and also transplant the removed hair follicles quickly without leaving them waiting outside for a long time. Subsequently, one of the most important factors in the health and success of this surgery is advising the patient on the process before and after the transplant. Since hair transplantation is a detailed and precise application that requires balanced medical equipment, you should choose well the center where the procedure will be performed.


Significantly less post-op discomfort or pain.
No linear scar.
Surgical wounds are much smaller and less obvious and only require days to heal.
Individual hair follicle harvesting allows for donor hair to be extracted from areas that have been impossible to harvest using the more traditional methods such as zones located on the sides of the scalp as well as the beard or body.
Extraction of hair from dense donor areas of the scalp and redistributing those hairs to the balding areas in order to minimize the contrast of balding and donor areas. This strategic extraction allows for a more even appearance of hair in donor areas that minimizes the appearance of balding.

FUE is limited by the number of grafts that can be extracted/placed in a single day. In some cases, a 2-day mega-session may be scheduled.
FUE is more operator-dependent and good hand-eye coordination is required in both extraction and placement of grafts.
FUE grafts are more delicate and special care is needed while handling and implanting them

Patients who prefer to wear their hair in a shorter style since FUE does not result in a linear scar
Patients with a small donor area from which to extract hair grafts or those who have a tight scalp
Patients with scarring from a prior FUT procedure may be able to conceal their scar during the second procedure with the option of placing FUE grafts directly into the scar line
Patients who have a limited amount of time set aside before returning to work
Patients who head towards more advanced classes of baldness and are willing to not only restore the balding areas but also minimize the visibility of the typical horseshoe pattern seen in people with advanced baldness ..

When performed by an experienced and skilled hair restoration physician, the final results should be so natural in appearance that others will not be able to tell that the hair was transplanted.

The number of grafts in an FUE procedure depends on the size of the area to be covered and the desired density. Thick hair and grafts containing larger numbers of 3’s and 4’s give the illusion of a fuller head of hair. Unfortunately, this is genetically predetermined. We review patient goals and possible options before determining the number of required grafts during the initial consultation.

DHI = The purpose of this technique is to transplant the grafts taken from the back of the head directly, without opening the canal. The grafts taken are immediately reinserted in order to achieve a healthy and strong result. Because the longer you wait for the transplants, the more the quality of this method suffers.

For hair follicles/grafts taken from the donor area to be transplanted, no holes are opened in the areas where the hair will be transplanted, and hair follicles are directly transplanted with special tips. Also this technique is more laborious and takes longer than the classic FUE technique. On the other hand, the healing process is faster because there is no incision.
The fact that no hole is opened in the area to be transplanted increases the number of roots that can be transplanted and allows for more intensive transplantation.
Besides the FUE technique, one of the new and very special techniques of hair transplantation is the DHI technique, which is used in only a few hair transplant centers in the world, especially in Türkiye.

Advantages of hair transplantation with DHI Technique ;

The most important feature of this technique is the latest hair transplant technique, which is the closest to natural hair. This method has a low risk of scars, denser hair density and, thanks to special needles, a high recovery rate. The density is twice that of the strip/side cut technique, 40-60 grafts per square centimeter. This density provides very good coverage in the buried area.
Moreover, this method offers the possibility of hair transplantation on different areas of the hair. It offers a more natural appearance and much more successful results when applied to sensitive areas, especially around the hairline.
Since it is a very delicate technique that must be applied individually, a team of experts, very successful in their field, work in hair transplant centers where this technique is used. Hair design in hair transplantation using the DHI technique achieves the most natural and successful results.
