Hair Transplant in Turkey

Compare 28 clinics

A hair transplant is a type of surgical hair restoration technique that involves moving individual hair follicles from a “donor site” to other places that generally lack hair growth. These areas are referred to as the “recipient site”.

Although hair transplants are mainly used to treat male pattern baldness, the procedure can also restore chest hair, beard and moustache hair, eyebrows and eyelashes.

There are two main hair restoration techniques currently in use today: Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).

Hair Transplant Candidates

Patients suffering from traumatic alopecia, male pattern baldness, receding hairlines, traction alopecia, and general alopecia can benefit from a hair transplant procedure.

Am I Suitable for Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant procedures are not recommended for patients suffering from spot baldness, patients with insufficient hair at the donor site (the back of the head) or female patients suffering from diffuse pattern balding, as this condition tends to affect the donor area as well, making hair follicles unusable.

Preparing for Hair Transplant

The patient should stop the intake of any soft drugs, alcohol, anti-inflammatory medicine, aspirin, vitamins, supplements and herbs at least one week before the surgery.

How is Hair Transplant Performed?

The first stage of the hair transplant procedure is an interview – the doctor will discuss with the patient, define the new hairline and answer any questions that the patient may still have.

During the second stage small injections with anaesthesia are administered in the donor area and the surgeon may begin extracting the hair grafts. A tiny micro motor with a micro punch is used for this part of the procedure and since the patient is administered anaesthesia, the whole process is painless.

In the third stage of the procedure, the doctor will create tiny incisions in the recipient site and start planting the harvested hair follicles. Once the hair follicles are planted, the area is wrapped in a bandage that prevents infection and bleeding.

Hair Transplant Recovery

During the recovery period, the patient should follow the doctor’s instructions very carefully and take antibiotics, sleeping pills and pain medications as prescribed. The patient should refrain from scratching, rubbing or combing the recipient area. The patient may wash his or her hair in at least 24 hours after the procedure – very hot water shouldn’t be used but instead the patient may use a gentle stream of lukewarm water and then carefully tap the area with a towel in order to dry it.

It may take up to 12 months before the full effects of a hair transplant procedure are noticeable.

Scars after Hair Transplant

The FUE hair transplant procedure leaves tiny scabs in the donor area but these will heal within a week. Other than that, there are no noticeable scars.

The FUT hair transplant technique usually leaves a large scar along the circumference of the back of the head.

Hair Transplant Side Effects

Patients may feel itchy sensations and some pain during the first weeks after a hair transplant. During this time some bleeding may occur but it’s unlikely. Other post-operative effects can include swelling, numbness and infections which can be easily treated with antibiotics.

Hair Transplant Success Rates

The success rate of this procedure depends heavily on the recovery period and the patient’s ability to follow the surgeon’s guidelines. Patients usually experience a success rate of 95-98% after a year – “success rate” refers to hair growing naturally in the recipient area.

Before and After Hair Transplant

The patient must have a clear understanding of the procedure itself and what to expect from it. The immediate post-operative recovery period is essential for the success of the operation but results come into full effect only a year after surgery, when the hair in the recipient area starts growing naturally and is indistinguishable from the rest of the patient’s hair.

Turkey

Turkey is a treasure trove of traditions, spices, street food delights and destinations for any intrepid tourist. It’s a mix between the familiar and the exotic, ranging from the bustling streets of Istanbul to the serene and relaxed Roman ruins spread around Turkey’s Western and Southern coast. Turkey is a fairly large country with 75 million inhabitants. The country spreads between Europe and Asia, with 97% of the country on the Asian side – Asian Turkey. Turkey is encircled and enjoys access to three different seas: The Black Sea, The Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean. Istanbul is the largest city in Turkey and the largest city in Europe, regarding population – It has over 14 million people.

Healthcare

Turkey’s medical infrastructure has improved greatly beginning with the early 2000s and now is one of the biggest medical tourism hubs in Europe and Asia. Turkey has the largest number of JCI-accredited hospitals, second only to the USA and hospitals are more often than not part of international healthcare groups, following strict European protocols and regulations. Turkey has 28.000 medical institutions spread across the European and Asian side but some of the biggest private hospitals and medical centres are in Istanbul, Ankara, Antalya and Bodrum – these also happen to be some of the best tourist destinations in Turkey.

Sights to See

Bodrum is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Turkey, with its sandy beaches and small streets littered with traditional shops and elegant restaurants. The town used to be called Halicarnassus, and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is one of the World’s Seven Ancient Wonders. Bodrum also features a castle built by the crusaders in the 15th century.

Istanbul is the home of several architectural treasures, including the Blue Mosque. The Blue Mosque was built on the orders of Sultan Ahmed between 1609 and 1616 and the Sultan’s body still resides within the mosque. The high ceiling is lined with more than 20000 handmade ceramic tiles, hence the name – The Blue Mosque.

Pamukkale, meaning “The Cotton Castle” in Turkish is a surreal destination in the country’s western region of Denizli, world renowned for its white terraces with warm spring water. The ancient Greek city of Hierapolis was built over the springs and Pamukkale was a renowned destination in antiquity as well. Tourists can visit the ancient Roman and Greek ruins of the baths, temples and theatres dating to the second century BC.

Things to Know

● If you don’t feel like waiting in a queue, you can get a VISA for Turkey online. The VISA usually costs around $20 for US travellers.

● Turkey’s population is predominantly Islamic so it’s a good idea to wear a headscarf while visiting mosques. Shorts or any other garments that fit under the knee are not prohibited by law but it’s considered good etiquette not to wear shorts for men or short skirts for women.

● You can change any sort of currency into the Turkish Lira – the Turkish currency just about everywhere. Most supermarkets and shops also accept credit cards.

● Roaming fees in Turkey can be somewhat expensive, so it’s a good idea to simply buy a new Turkish SIM card and use it while staying in Turkey.

● Turkey’s international calling code is +90.

● Electrical installations usually operate on 220 volts, 50 Hz and use European style plugs and European style sockets. Four and Five star hotels usually provide North American - 120 volts, 60 Hz sockets as well.

● Driving in Turkey can be a hassle sometimes, but very pleasurable at other times. Roads are usually in good shape and some roads actually lack traffic, so it can be a relaxing experience. In Turkey, people drive on the right, so that’s a detail you will need to keep in mind. In some areas, villagers made cardboard and marker pen signs in order to help lost tourist on their way.

● Renting a car in Turkey is quite simple and cheap. If you have the budget for a full insurance, you should definitely take it – if anything happens, at least you won’t have to worry about money.

● The Turkish Airlines Company, THY offers destinations to just about anywhere in the world with a total of 261 destinations. The company was founded in 1933 and features 285 passenger and cargo planes.

● Turkey uses the metric system which is easy enough to understand – 1 Km = 1000 meters, 1 Kg = 1000 grams, and so on. One mile equals 1.60 Km.

● Turkish people are warm and very hospitable - It is customary for people to hug and kiss both cheeks regardless of their gender.

● Turkish street food is very diverse, from the simple bagel-type snack Simit to the familiar pizza-type Lahmacun, there are tons of variants to just about anything. 



● Turkish coffee is world renowned, but it’s also a bit different than say, its American counterpart -  It is usually a strong coffee with a rich aroma, served very hot from a small traditional cup. Be careful not to drink any of the coffee grounds still in the cup.

● Turkish delight, as the name suggests, can be a really sweet delight for tourists. It is made from sugar, starch and just about any fruit or aroma imaginable, including walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, dates, lemon, orange, rosewater and many others. Turkish delight is usually served with coffee and it became popular all around the world, including in the Balkans region and as far as Brazil and North America.

Hair Transplant FAQ

?
How many hair grafts do I need?

Generally speaking, around 35 grafts are used for each square centimetre – a consultation is needed to determine the exact number of grafts needed for a hair transplant procedure.

?
Are hair transplant surgery results permanent?

Hair transplants last a lifetime as the transplanted hair follicles are resistant to going bald and they start growing naturally in the recipient areas. Some patients may experience slight hair loss in the recipient area as they progress through old age.

?
Does a hair transplant hurt?

Since anaesthetic is administered before the procedure begins, a hair transplant is practically painless.
