One of the most significant causes of hair loss is genetic features; however, it can also occur as a result of advancing age, traumatic injuries or various medical disorders. Regardless of the reason, hair transplantation is successfully applied to all people who have sufficient hair follicles in their safe zone. The transplantation method can be applied successfully not only to the scalp but also to eyebrows, mustache or beard.
For the procedure, the type of shedding is more decisive than the age. If there are visible gaps that cause discomfort when looking in the mirror, hair transplantation can be done. Hair loss can cause self-confidence problems that can affect every aspect of your lives, from your social life to success in your business life. Therefore, it is an operation that can be safely performed to anyone who does not have a medical disability and is disturbed by their appearance.
Hair transplantation processes take 4 to 10 hours depending on factors such as the amount of hair loss of the patient.
Days after surgery both recipient and donor area start to form crusts. Depending on your healing rate those crust fall off within 7-10 days after surgery. First month of the surgery the hair strands that came with grafts will shade away mostly. Again, it differs for each individual but generally within 2-3 months transplanted hair will start to regrow. In the first 2-3 month of the operation, you will be looking like the pre transplantation period. You will see a visible change 6 months after surgery. Total outcome will take 1 year. Even at the crown area it takes a little longer, takes usually 15-18 months.
Since the transplanted hair follicles are taken from the area coded not to fall out, the same feature continues in the transplanted area. In other words, your transplanted hair will stay with you for life as long as there is no illness or accident.

Today, the most reliable method used in hair transplantation is the “Folicular Unite Extraction” (FUE) method. It is a method in which follicular units (hair follicles) are removed one by one with personalized microsurgical instruments (without cutting and stitching Marks) from the donor area, where hair follicles are resistant to shedding and transplanted to bald areas on the same day. Those follicules also are called non-androgenic follociules. As transplantation method, hair transplantation techniques Sapphire FUE, DHI (Pen Technique) and Hybrid Hair transplantation methods are used in our clinic. Although Robotic Surgery procedures are used in some clinics, they are not used in our clinic because the method is expensive and has not been developed enough yet.
