What Is Hair Transplant Surgery?

A hair transplant is a cosmetic procedure performed by a specialist to address the issue of thinning hair.

The goal is to restore hair to the areas of the scalp that are thinning or bald, creating a fuller head of hair. The donor site for the hair is typically the back of the head or the sides of the scalp, though in some cases, the front of the scalp can be used if there is not enough hair on the other areas.

The hair transplant procedure is typically quick and relatively painless, with local anaesthesia used to numb the relevant areas to ensure comfort. The length of the procedure will depend on the extent of the hair loss and the desired outcome.

Hair transplants have been performed for decades, with early versions dating back to the 1950s in the United States and even earlier in Japan in the 1930s. Today’s hair transplant procedures are highly refined and successful, providing a permanent solution for hair loss and the chance to regain a thick, full head of hair.

What's the Hair Transplant Surgery Process?

The hair transplant process at Simply Aesthetic involves a few key steps. Before the procedure, the surgeon will clean your scalp and administer a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort. They will then determine whether to perform follicular unit extraction (FUE) or follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) based on your specific needs and hair characteristics.

With FUSS, a strip of skin from the donor area is removed, divided into individual grafts, and then transplanted into the affected areas. With FUE, hair follicles are extracted one by one from the back of the scalp.

Once the grafts are prepared, the next steps are the same for both techniques. The surgeon will numb the recipient area and make tiny incisions with a needle or scalpel, carefully inserting each graft. This process can be time-consuming, often taking 8 hours or more, and may require a team of surgeons working on one head.

For clients seeking thicker hair, Simply Aesthetic may schedule additional procedures in the future. Throughout the process, Simply Aesthetic’s experienced and skilled surgeons prioritize precision and comfort to help you achieve your desired results.

Who is Eligible to get a Hair Transplant Procedure in Turkey?

To be eligible for hair transplant surgery in Turkey, it is important to meet the following criteria:

  • You should be at least 25 years of age
  • Your hair loss should be mainly concentrated across the hairline
  • You should not have any medical conditions that may affect blood clotting or blood pressure, or if you have diabetes, it should be well-managed
  • Your hair loss should not be due to medication or stress
  • Your hair fibres should be thick enough
  • The colour of your hair should be close to your skin tone
  • Both males and females who have lost hair due to a scalp injury or burn may be eligible

However, some conditions may make the surgery inappropriate:

  • If you are undergoing chemotherapy or taking medication that causes hair loss
  • If you do not have enough “donor” hair sites to extract hair from
  • For women with widespread hair loss across the scalp
  • For individuals with keloid scars on their scalp from previous surgeries or injuries.

Understanding Hair Transplant Surgery in Turkey

  1. Selecting FUT or FUE: Hair transplant procedures can be divided into two main categories: Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Our partner surgeons will advise you on which is best placed to deliver your perfect head of hair.
  2. Consultation and Assessment: During the consultation, the surgeon will assess the extent of your hair loss and discuss the best options for you.
  3. Pre-operative Preparation: our team will give you clear instructions to prepare for the surgery, which may include avoiding certain medications and alcohol.
  4. The Procedure: Hair transplant procedures typically take several hours to complete and are performed under local anaesthesia to ensure comfort. During the operation, the surgeon will carefully extract hair follicles from the donor site and transplant them to the areas of the scalp that need to be restored.
  5. Recovery and Aftercare: We take great pride in our aftercare and will give you specific instructions to ensure proper healing and the best possible results. This may include taking prescribed medications, avoiding certain activities, and attending follow up appointments, in person or by video call.
  6. Results and Maintenance: The effects of hair transplant surgery can take several months to become fully visible, but the transplanted hair will continue to grow and thicken over time. Maintaining a healthy scalp and hair care regimen ensures long-lasting results.

Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS) vs. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)?

There are two main techniques for transplanting hair, and it’s worth understanding the differences. These are Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) involves using a small punch instrument to extract individual follicles from the donor area, typically the back of your scalp. The procedure may result in some scarring, but the scars are often less noticeable due to their location under the hair. No stitches are needed for closure.

With Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS), the surgeon removes a strip of skin from the donor area (back of the scalp) and closes the area with stitches. The strip is then dissected under a microscope into individual follicular units containing one or several hair follicles and transplanted into the desired location.

The choice between FUSS and FUE depends on several factors, including the extent of hair loss, the desired results, and individual preferences. Some patients may prefer FUE for its minimally invasive nature, while others may choose FUSS for its ability to produce a larger number of grafts in a single session. Our specialist partners will help evaluate your specific needs and recommend the most suitable option.

Hair Implants Side Affects

The risks and side effects of hair transplant surgery in Turkey, as with any medical procedure, should be considered and discussed with a doctor before the procedure. Some common side effects and risks include:

  • Inflammation and swelling: This is a common and normal reaction to the procedure and should subside within a few days to one week.
  • Mild bleeding: Minor bleeding from the surgical incisions is also expected and should cease within 4 to 5 days. A dressing or head bandage will be applied to keep the area clean and free of external dirt or bacteria during the healing process.
  • Hair loss: The transplanted hair will fall out due to the “trauma” or shock to the scalp, which is normal. This usually occurs within a few weeks of the procedure and does not affect the newly transplanted follicles. New growth should be noticeable within six months.
  • Scabbing: Scabbing is a natural part of the skin’s healing process and helps protect the skin as it repairs itself. After the hair transplant procedure, scabs will form on the follicles but eventually fall off by themselves after one week to 10 days.
  • Stitches or staples: If a strip graft procedure is performed, staples or stitches may be used to close the incision. The surgeon should remove these after two weeks.

 

Recovery and Aftercare

After a hair transplant surgery in Turkey, the expected recovery period is ten days. During this time, you may experience sensitivity and discomfort in the scalp, which can be relieved with painkillers. You will wear a bandage on your head for the first day, and your surgeon will remove any stitches after a week to 10 days.

To ensure a quick and successful recovery, keeping the scalp clean and avoiding harsh treatments or chemicals is essential. Avoid direct water on the head during showers for a few days, and avoid touching or scratching the head if it itches.

While the initial healing process may take 2 to 5 days, the full results of the transplant can take anywhere from 12 to 18 months to show. You may experience hair loss during this time, which is normal and part of the natural hair growth pattern. After a few weeks, new hair growth may be noticeable, and some clinics may prescribe hair growth medications to improve results.

It’s essential to be patient and follow all post-operative guidelines provided by your surgeon to achieve optimal results. In many cases, patients have seen new hair growth within six months of the surgery.

Hair Transplant Costs in Turkey

The cost of a hair transplant depends on the chosen method and the number of grafts inserted, but the cost in Turkey is only a third of the costs in other regions, such as the United Kingdom. Prices can range from £1,200 to £2,5000.

FAQS

Why Choose Turkey for Hair Implant Treatment?

The success rates for hair transplants in Turkey are a whopping 98% percent when performed by a specialised team of experts.

There are over 45 Joint Commission International-Accredited hospitals in Turkey. Possibly more than any other country on the globe. The medical organizations in the country are highly regulated by their government, and ensure that all policies surrounding compliance with the global healthcare standards are met. You will be glad to know that most of the staff who work in clinics and medical institutions speak English or are multilingual.

At what Age Can you Get Hair Transplant Surgery?

Hair Transplants can be done on anyone from the age of 18 years old. However, if you can hold it out, the best time to get one is when you have reached the age of 25 years. The younger you are, the more likely it is that your hair is still going through its growing-out process, which means it may not have started or finished its balding or receding process. If done too early, you risk the surgery not working.

Who Can and Cannot Get a Hair Transplant Surgery?

Candidates who are eligible for a hair transplant are mainly those who are having issues with baldness, either around the entire head or in parts of it. Those especially that are affected by genetics, such as baldness re-occurring through families and generations would be more than likely good candidates for this procedure.
