Your Complete Guide to Hair Transplant in Turkey
From pre-consultation to the post operations consultations, we will be united.
Step by Step Process
Your hair/skin condition is analyzed and possible treatments are discussed via text messaging or in an online meeting. Specialists (in consultation with a dermatologist) will tell you whether you are a candidate for a hair transplant and explain the reasoning.
If you are suitable for the hair transplant, our customer success specialist will unite with you to make sure you are very well prepared for the operation. (pre-op instructions)
2. Meeting with a dermatologist in the Clinic
When you meet with the doctor, you can explain what you want to achieve. The doctor will examine your hair and scalp and ask questions to get more information about your family genetics, medical history, habits, and lifestyle since each patient is unique and personalized treatment is a must.
You will be informed about your scalp condition, hair quality, and density, and your donor/recipient areas. As a result of this step, you will be advised of
– Your unique hair density and quality
– The proper integrated treatment
– Expected results and operational forecast
3. Testing & Planning
Several medical tests will be done to examine your overall health to ensure the hair transplant operation’s safety.
After the medical check, the doctor will draw the natural hairline (based on your wishes and best practices concerning your head/face type and shape) and mark the sections that require a transplant. You will check them and ask for amending if you want.
4. Operation Setup
You will be accompanied to the operation room and change into a surgical gown. Then the team assists you to settle on the surgical chair. Next to the surgical chair. you will have a tablet you can use during the procedure with Netflix in it.
Standard local anesthesia, needle-free anesthesia, or sedation (by an anesthesiologist) will be done concerning your choice.
5. Follicular Unit Extraction
When your scalp is numb, the dermatologist surgeon starts to extract hair follicles from the donor area. To get the best result with the minimum possible damage, micro-motor punches that suit your hair follicle size is used.
The extraction continues until the necessary amount of grafts is extracted. The amount is defined by the size of the balding part, the capacity of the donor area, type of hair, and your expectations
6. Graft Analysis
Naturally, the hair grows in bundles called follicular unit grafts. The number of grafts per follicle and hair on each follicle changes. After extraction, each graft is analyzed under a microscope and categorized. They will be strategically used by the team for the best outcome.
While waiting to be implanted, these grafts are kept in a special solution and ideal temperature for bio-preservation.
7. Channel Opening
By using sapphire blades, tiny channels are opened. At this point, the team is concentrated on:
– The number of donor grafts
– Surrounding hair angle and density
– Proper angle of implantation
To create natural-looking and homogeneous hair patterns.
8. Graft Implantation
In the last stage, hair follicles are implanted into the previously prepared incision sites. Each graft is carefully placed in a channel using special tools to match the determined directions and preserve the graft structure.
After completion, the doctor checks all the implanted hair follicles to ensure the operations are successful.
8. Post Operation
You will get post-op instructions and an aftercare box. Then you will be free to leave the clinic.
2 days later, you can visit the clinic again or send us pictures of your head from all directions for dermatologists to check the situation.
