Hair Transplantation

Today, there are new technologies to have a natural hair transplant. FUE is the best modern hair transplant technique. We perform hair transplant operations with the FUE technique in Euro Istanbul.

What is FUE Hair Transplant?

FUE Hair Transplantation (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a procedure that extracts hair follicles from the back of head and is transplanted into the frontal part. FUE is a process that involves extracting grafts using a micromotor and reimplanting them in the desired areas using Sapphire or DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) techniques.

Advantages ofHair Transplantation in Turkey

There has been remarkable demand for hair transplantation recently as in all health care services in Turkey. The most apparent reasons are the high-quality service, competitive prices, competent doctors and health care personnel at the clinics in Turkey.

Hair transplant clinics in Turkey perform ten times more operations than their counterparts in Europe or America. Other sub-sectors serving hair transplant surgeons have been highly developed over the years. Hair transplant prices in Turkey correspond to one-quarter of the USA, Canada and Gulf countries and one third of Europe.

Additionally, Istanbul is one of the most important tourism destinations. Therefore, it offers sightseeing and cultural trip opportunities for patients.

All-inclusive hair transplantation packages prevent patients from dealing with other unnecessary work (accommodation, transfer, etc.) and allow them to concentrate on their treatments.

    Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant


    Although new techniques have been developed recently, the Sapphire technique remains the most recommended and used technique.

    The V-shape of the Sapphire blades provides precise, tiny, and clean holes on the scalp. This feature ensures a successful natural-looking transplant.

    The smoothness of Sapphire blades is also a major advantage. Unlike the old metal blades, Sapphire blades do not lose their sharpness during the procedure. Therefore, it causes less damage to the skin tissues and provides painless, faster and safer healing and scarring.

    The antibacterial Sapphire blades mean that there is no risk of damaging the blood during the operation. Therefore, the risk of infections and postoperative pain is significantly low.

    Sapphire Hair TransplantProcedure Stages


    The first step is to extract the follicles. During this step, performed under local anaesthesia, we extract the follicles from the donor area, which is the crown.

    The doctors prefer the extraction from this area because the follicles of the hypocritic crown are not damaged by hormonal disorders and remain intact by keeping their density. The extracted follicles are kept in a special thermal solution at a specific temperature.

    The second step is the most important involving the transplant process. The doctor opens tiny holes on the scalp.

    This step is very delicate and decisive. Therefore, it should be performed by an experienced and certified surgeon.

    For the best result, each hole should match the angle and depth of the patient’s natural hair growth line.

    The third and final step is placing the grafts into the holes. Once the transplant is complete, the donor area will be covered to prevent swelling.

    The patient should follow the post-operative instructions and can return home safely.

    The procedure lasts between 6 and 8 hours. Each step takes about 2 hours.

    Hair Transplant Without Shaving with DHI


    As in FUE Sapphire, even with the DHI hair transplant technique, the operation can be performed avoiding the complete shaving of the patient’s hair. (only the donor area is shaved, where the bulbs are extracted)

    However, it depends on the case of the patient, as it is NOT always advisable to proceed without shaving. A patient who has a simple receding hairline or open localized thinning will have the option to proceed without shaving all the hair.

    Alternatively, if the patient has a general thickening and has already hair, it is recommended to completely shave the hair. This will allow the surgeon to operate with a better vision, create more channels and not risk ruining the hair already present. Furthermore, it is preferable to proceed with shaving to prevent the patient from involuntarily scratching the new bulbs during the hair washing in the first 12 days following the surgery.

    What is the main difference between theSapphire Method and the DHI Method?

    As the name suggests, DHI, Direct Hair Implantation: DIRECT HAIR IMPLANT. That means the surgeon can open the channels directly at the moment of the implanting in a single maneuver.

    The surgeon, once the bulbs have been taken, inserts them individually into the implanter pen which will then be used to graft each bulb directly, opening the channel and simultaneously grafting bulb by bulb through a single and simple "click" of the implanter pen!

    Once a nib is used, it is immediately refilled with another bulb by the team assisting the surgeon. For an operation, approximately 5-6 nibs are used, which are constantly recharged by the rotating team, thus ensuring the surgeon always has one loaded at the end of each graft.

    Generally with the Sapphire hair transplant it is possible to perform up to 5000 / 6000 follicular units, although this always depends on the case history and the donor area of the patient concerned.

    However, the DHI method takes longer than the normal FUE and hardly allows for grafts higher than 3000 - 3500 follicular units.

    The DHI technique is suggested by the specialist in cases where there is internal thinning and/or receding hairline requiring greater precision.

    This technique is more expensive than FUE because it requires a different medical equipment and qualified and experienced surgeons.

    DHI Hair Transplant

    Procedure Stages

    The first step is always the same. It is the collection of hair follicles to be transplanted.

    The second and the last step includes creating the channels and simultaneously transplanting the grafts with the help of the choi-pen. Once the transplant is complete, the donor area will be covered to prevent swelling.


    Hair Transplantation For Ladies


    Hair transplantation for women is performed the same way in men. However, total shaving of the hair is avoided for aesthetic reasons.

    Women also experience hair loss and thin hair, albeit in a smaller percentage. Therefore many female subjects choose hair transplant surgery. The most common reasons include anti-aesthetic hair thinning or alopecia. These problems cause psychological problems since the hair is fundamental for women that represent femininity. Except for rare situations (such as total alopecia) it is possible to solve these problems.

    When men have hair transplant operations, they mostly shave their hair. These do not create problems as it is not strange for a man to shave their hair. However, hair shaving could create aesthetic discomfort. For this reason, when women have this operation, only a small “window” in the donor area is shaved, and the surgeon extracts the graft from this small area.

    Hair Transplant


    When the surgery is over, the patient gets a hair wash to remove any residual fluid and some skin bloodstains.

    During the first 24 hours, the patient may notice redness in the treated areas. This is normal, and the redness will fade away within a few hours.

    In some cases, swelling may also occur, but it will disappear without any problems. If the patient feels any pain, it is possible to take painkillers.

    The next day, doctors do a routine medical check-up to confirm that everything is all right. The patient is informed how to get the first hair wash which should be done in 48 hours following the operation.

    It is important to avoid stinging, scratcing and touching the head in the first days.

    The patient will be clearly informed about after care. We also set up personalized follow-up for each patient with our customer service. The country manager will be at your disposal for all necessary information.

    Healing and Results


    Recovery from FUE surgery is faster and completely painless.

    It heals within ten to fifteen days, and all remaining crusts fall off during this period.

    Correct and good recovery firstly depends on the hair wash. For this reason, it is important that the hair wash is done properly, and that you do not skip any steps.

    The hair wash products will be provided in the clinic. The foam is applied directly to the planted areas and left on the head for 30 minutes, then the shampoo is applied directly on the foam and rinsed with warm water, never using a direct jet such as a shower.

    It is preferable to pour the water into a container and then gently pour it over the hair. Do not rub vigorously, massage gently with your fingertips and rinse.

    These washes should be repeated every day. The first wash will be done 48 hours after the operation. It should be done correctly so that the crusts can shed within fifteen days, and allow the scalp to grow new hair.

    When the crusts are left longer, it will block the outflow of hair resulting in negative consequences. The hair will decrease in number and become less thick.

    The donor area will have redness for the first few days, but in most cases, it disappears with repeated hair regrowth within a few weeks.

    Although rare, the redness may persist longer, and the hair may take longer to grow. In these cases, you need to be patient, and the donor area will be back to normal in a few months.

    In these cases, natural aloe vera can be applied to relieve redness and itching. If the doctor finds it necessary, cutaneous minoxidil can be applied to stimulate hair growth.

    After washing for fifteen days, the crusts will fall off, and the hair will begin to grow.

    Hair will grow up in one to two months and then fall out, this stage is called SHOCK LOSS. Shock shedding affects 95% of patients. This happens because the first hairs are the weakest and easily fall off.

    Hair will grow back in three to four months during the first year.

    Although it varies from patient to patient, it is possible to see the first results following six to eight months.

    For 100% results, it is necessary to be patient and wait until twelve to eighteen months.

    Hair Care and Supplements

    After care should be coupled with quality products and a healthy diet.

    Not every patient should be on medication for life after surgery, but each patient should be evaluated by the doctor.
