Hair loss is a very common problem among men and might be related to DNA heritage or other reasons. Hair transplant (also called hair restoration or hair implantation) restores hair by transplanting new follicles into bald or thinned areas. Healthy follicles are taken from other areas of the body, most often the back or the sides of the head. This can be done by removing a single strip of skin and hair or removing the follicles individually. The number of grafts needed depends on the patient and the size of the area being treated. Most common method is FUE method.

The examinations are performed by our esthetic surgeons and the whole process is realized under their supervision. Advanced methods of examination and up to date technology is used in our clinic in order to maximize patient satisfaction in a sterile, specially conditioned environment. Being a general hospital also helps us build trust among our patients, giving us the chance of working with a multidisciplinary perspective.
The question is actually “How many grafts do I need?”. Each patient has different thickness, amount and different emptiness. The graft numbers should be decided by the doctor and the team according the bald area and the donor area. There is no need to damage the blood circulation in the sculp in order to transplant more and more grafts. The best solution is the “ideal amount of grafts” for an optimal hair transplant. More grafts sometimes cause more hair loss.
There is actually no pain at all. Your sculp will be numbed with local anesthesia injections and after that you will not feel anything. Lying down for long time might be a bit discomfortable but our team gives small breaks during the procedure. You might also choose the “Comfort FUE” method and get sedation by our anesthesia specialists and have the whole process nearly sleeping.
Follicular unit grafting requires tiny incisions to the recipient area and any resultant scarring is generally invisible to the untrained eye. There will also be a small scar from the donor area at the back of your scalp, but it will be hidden under existing hair. So there is actually no scars at all.
Hair growth is a whole process starts by the operation and ends when all the new follicles grow. After you have the procedure, initial signs of growth can take anything from three to four months due to the hair’s natural growing cycle. The new implanted hair follicles will fall within 3 months and new ones will start growing! So no worries if you lose the new ones!
The hair follicles that are transplanted are genetically-resistant against baldness so they will continue to grow over your lifetime. That is why the new follicles are taken from the back or side of the head.
You’ll generally only need to take it easy for a couple of days after the procedure. Take it easy while allowing your body to recover. Nutrition, daily activities, water consumption is very important during the healing process. Our team will guide you about all the necessary points and you will have your Step to Step guide for the post operative period.
The follicles are collected randomly from the back or side of the head. So untrained eyes can not understand that you had a hair transplant or no one will notice any emptiness at the back of your head. Some patients might prefer leaving the hair a bit longer then normal at the back side.
