We live in the modern age where the aesthetics has a significant part both, for men and women.

The number of men and women dealing with hair loss has increased. Thanks to modern methods that in recent years have provided perfect long-term results in the field of medical aesthetics, we have a unique opportunity for hair regrowth and a high level of self-esteem.

Around the world, we have countless clinics that deal with this type of surgery, but the leader among them is Turkey, as a place where doctors from all over the world come for training to Turkey in order to expand business in their country. As for the prices for hair transplants, there are big differences between the rest of the countres and Turkey. The first and fundamental reason that affects the creation of prices is the economic standard of each country, and the way of creation of prices itself. When we compare the prices in Turkey with Europe and America, we have big oscillations and differences because here the prices are fixed and do not depend on the number of transplanted grafts but on the method which is applied, whether FUE or DHI. While in European countries, the final price differs drastically from the initial price once the consultation is finished. For this reason, in recent years there has been huge number of tourists coming to Turkey for hair transplantation, because patients can buy their new hair for very affordable pricesm, better quality and full package servicies. Hair transplant prices in Turkey range from €2500 to €4,500, depending on the clinic and the method itself.

What is hair transplant?

Hair transplantation is a treatment based on the transplantation of hair from the occipital region, where the follicular units have a genetically greater resistance to the action of androgens (donor region) to the area affected by alopecia (recipient region). Unfortunately, not all hair loss can be treated with a hair transplant.

There are some alopecias that cannot be treated or cannot produce the desired results after a hair transplant. Generally, the last resort for androgenic alopecia is a hair transplant. The limit of the number of grafts to be transplanted is always determined by the donor area. Patients with poor donor area relative to the degree of alopecia they have should not expect the same results as others with better donor area. If the hair in the donor area is strong, thick enough and of good quality, the hair gives the best results after hair transplantation, so the extraction will be better, and the feeling of coverage in the receiving area will be greater.    During the preoperative period, the patient should follow the preoperative instructions, which include instructions such as reducing sports, tobacco, alcohol, blood thinners, etc. However, depending on the hair transplant method and consultation with the doctor, the donor area will be shaved at the clinic when the patient arrives for treatment.

How long does hair transplant surgery take?

The intervention lasts between 6 and 8 hours. Hair transplantation is an operation that does not require admission, and the medical recovery is fast, although aesthetically we insist that patients pay attention in their social and work activities during the recovery process for at least 30 days (depending on the type of work). Already from the second month, patients can return to normal life activities.

What type of anesthesia is used?

Hair transplantation is performed under local anesthesia. The technician will prepare your scalp for local anesthesia by administering needle-free anesthesia using the Comfort-in device. The pain-free anesthesia machine consists of a high-pressure fluid that helps numb the area. The patient will only feel the pressure of the liquid on the skin. This device has a 0.15 mm opening and a very high speed jet application system.

Once the area is prepared, local anesthesia is administered. The needle used to administer the agent is very thin and causes minimal skin irritation. People describe the pain from this needle as similar to the first injection of local anesthetic experienced during dental surgery. To reduce the amount of injection that can cause discomfort, the needle is injected into the area where the diffusely spread nerves are located.

How many hair transplant techniques exist?

There are 2 types of hair transplant techniques that are most common ones as FUE and DHI.

1)FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplant technique

It consists of extracting the follicular units one by one from the occipital region using a micro-motor with small punches of 0.7-0.9 mm. This technique requires shaving the patient scalp in order to help the doctor and technicians to have better visualization during the operation.  Although it has the advantage that it does not leave any type of visible scar, it also allows us to obtain a greater number of follicular units.

FUE Sapphire

This method is variation of the FUE method. Instead of metal blade that is used for traditional FUE technique with FUE Sapphire method we use sapphire blades that are actually made from aluminium oxide, to open channels during the hair transplantation. Sapphire blades are more robust than steel blades, and their sharpness stays for a long time. Due to the cutting-edge technology of the blades used in sapphire hair transplantation increases the success rate. The surface of sapphire blades is hard and smooth, resulting in perfect cuts. Due to the unique nature of the blades, there is minor tissue damage. Since the micro incisions are smooth, recovery is better and faster. Since the ends of sapphire blades are V-shaped, our doctors can make more frequent incisions there for hair follicles to be planted closer together which gives more natural results than from traditional FUE hair transplantation. For anyone with a metal allergy, they cannot go through hair transplantation with steel blades so the FUE Sapphire technique is the best solution. Due to the smooth nature of the sapphire blades, there is less possibility of germs getting attached to this surface. Hence, the risk of infection is reduced. 

Sapphire hair transplantation, which has been applied since 2016, is relatively new compared to other methods. This technique, which has an efficient application style, is frequently preferred over other methods with its effective results. Sapphire hair transplant method is the best and comfortable method for patients compared to other methods.

2)DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) technique With the DHI method, follicle extraction is the same as with FUE. In other words, this technique is actually known as the hair implantation method, and only the second part of its procedure differs from the one with FUE method. In the DHI method, harvested hair follicles are transplanted using a special device called a CHOI pen. CHOI’s pen is an original device developed by Kyungpook National University in Korea. Initially, the hair transplant community did not use it much because the procedure takes longer. However, some surgeons prefer to use this pencil because of the greater control over the angle of graft placement. The CHOI pen has a needle size between 0.5 and 1.5 mm. The doctor chooses the size of the needle according to the capillary characteristics of the patient. After harvesting, the grafts are placed in this pen. This pen is used to open and implement channels at the same time. The stages of DHI hair transplantation are very similar to FUE hair transplantation, except that the preparation of the area and the implantation of the grafts are performed simultaneously.

5 STEPS OF HAIR TRASNPLANT PROCEDURE

1. Blood analysis and consultation with doctor

After your blood is taken for the blood analysis you will have the consultation with the doctor. During the consultation we will decide final number of maximum grafts that will be transplanted and draw the line of front line of your head. Depending on the hair transplant method you may be required to shave your hair even.

2. Applying the anesthesia

Before your procedure starts you will have local anaesthetic injected into the scalp in order to make the extraction and grafting of the hair painless and comfortable for the patient. This part may sting initially but many patients are surprised about how quick it takes and it will take affect almost instantly. You will be conscious during the entire procedure so if at any time you are feeling uncomfortable or want to take a break you will be able to communicate this.

3. Extraction

Once the anesthesiais being applied the extraction of the hair follicles may start. Hair follicles are extracted from the hair donor area using the most suitable micro-tips for hair follicles ranging from 0.6 – 0.7 – 0.8mm. Once the hair follicle bulb has been removed it is then placed into a glass tray and kept in a solution to keep them at a perfect range of hydration, temperature and humidity until the extraction process is complete.

4.Harvesting the grafts

Once the extraction process in complete then you are usually given a break for lunch where you will be given the chance to stretch your legs and have something to eat.

During this time your surgeon will be starting to examine the extracted grafts and make a selection into which ones are suitable for use and which are not. They are then separated into groups by thickness, size of the bulb and number of hairs to make sure that there is enough variation to provide the patient the most natural looking result.

5. Chanel opening

You may need to have your local anaesthetic topped up at this stage to ensure that the procedure is still pain-free and comfortable.The opening of the channel greatly affects the appearance of the hair and directly determines the angle, direction and density of the hair. Therefore, this process is the most important step for the success of the Fue hair transplant. The use of a sapphire blade instead of a steel one during Fue hair transplantation minimizes damage to the skin and significantly increases the success rate.

6. Implantation of the hair grafts

The hair roots are transplanted into the open channels with sharp, smooth and durable sapphire tips. Hair follicle size scratches allow multiple channels, even in the narrow area, and hair follicles can be seeded closer together. Hairs that are transplanted at the correct angle and direction provide a natural appearance.

7. Aftercare

A day after your surgery you will be shown  in the clinic how to wash your hair with special Hair Care Package after har transplant and will be given advices for your hair care once you go back hour home. At the Sava Hair your will be provided with the Hair Package Care Kit and all medicines you need to recover better after this procedure. You will also get the PRP treatment to support your hair growth. 

The initial healing of the donor area will take 5-7 days and at this point any redness or swelling should have subsided.

8. Final results

First month is totally normal to have hair loss and your shouldn’t be afraid of its all the part of recovery process. Between 4 or 6 months you may see the first better results of your new transplanted hair but the your hair transplant journey should be completed in 12 months. During this period you may have even your donor or front area numb until a year of your surgery. You will have noticed a difference to your hairline or hair density in the areas treated. A hair transplant is designed to last for decades as the hair taken from your donor area is known to be resistant to male pattern baldness. However, it is important to remember that other untreated areas of your scalp may still be prone to male pattern baldness so over time thinning and baldness may occur in these areas which could result in an additional hair transplant procedure being needed. Our surgeon at SavaHair are highly experienced and will take care to foresee any potential future hair loss patterns to ensure that your results are long-lasting.

When does the transplanted hair start to grow?

Candidates can usually see new hair growing within five to six months. It is necessary to wait 12-18 for the final result. Within 4-5 months, the regrowth of the hair will accelerate and within the 6th month you will see half of the result and notice the obvious changes. At this stage, you will also see that the newly transplanted hair has become quite thick.

You should avoid scratching your scalp after the operation. 4-5 days after the operation, the hair in the transplanted area will start to fall out and this will continue for 2-3 months. After that, new permanent hair will start to grow and after 2-3 months you will gradually start to see results.

How long do I have to stay in Turkey for a hair transplant?

To carry out a successful hair transplant, we recommend that you stay in Turkey for a minimum 2 days. After your arrival to Turkey, you may undergo an operation. If you book a flight early, on the same day you can undergo a hair transplant procedure. If you land in Turkey in the later hours, you may rest in your hotel room and the next day you get your operation.

The first thing to pay attention to is the correct collection and removal of the hair to be transplanted.

When can I go back to work?

This greatly depend on the type of work one is involved in. If the type of work is office related one can easily resume work after 2-3 days of rest. However if the work involves heavy labour which is physically intense we recommend a resting period of 7-10 days after which work can be resumed.

The legal age to have a hair transplant is 18. However, patients are expected to be at least 20 years old for beard transplantation. This is because beard hair continues to grow into the mid to late 20s.

There are factors that affect the success rate of hair transplant operation. If the procedure is done in a reputable clinic with an experienced doctor and highly trained medical staff, the success rate will be over 90%. Although the success rate of hair transplantation is quite high, it can still vary depending on the experience, technical expertise, minimal trauma to the hair follicles and the care to be applied after the surgery.

2000 grafts are equalto how many hair follicles?

2000 grafts contain approximately 5000 to 6500 hair follicles. Calculating the number of grafts in hair transplantation is a very important step in finding the number of follicles required to close the area where hair loss occurs.
