One of the most common cosmetic problems today is hair loss. Although it is believed to occur only in men, women also face this problem from time to time. It is normal for between 50 and 100 strands of hair to fall out per day. If the loss exceeds these numbers, a specialist should be consulted.


Hair loss in men and women can be genetic or caused by certain problems. These must be analyzed in detail.

The following treatments can be used for hair loss:

  1. Oral supplements
  2. Mesotherapy
  3. PRP
  4. Stem cell treatments

Although hair loss can be reduced or prevented with various hair treatments such as hair lasers and PRP, hair transplantation is performed as a solution for people who have experienced severe hair loss and whose hair loss is complete.

Hair transplantation can be performed in women when there is a deficiency in a certain area. It is not recommended if it is a general area of thinning and loss. It is recommended for men after the age of 30, when genetic hair loss is complete. At this age, hair loss decreases or stops. The borders of bald patches become clear. If the treatment is done before, empty patches may appear again. This causes the person to feel bad all the time.



Hair transplantation involves harvesting genetically resistant hair follicles from the back of the patient's neck and transplanting them into the canals that have been opened in the areas where baldness or thinning occurs.

Hair transplantation is a microsurgical procedure performed under local anesthesia. For this reason, hair transplantation should be performed by a licensed physician and his team in a clinic, medical center or hospital approved by the Ministry of Health.


The hair transplantation is carried out in three main stages;

1. Harvest of hair follicles

After the donor area is prepared for the procedure, the hair follicles are harvested one by one using the FUE motor. In the meantime, it is very important that the follicles are not damaged. Each of these follicles, called grafts, contains an average of 2-3 hairs.

2. Canalization

Canalization the right size and depth depending on the region affects the rate of hair growth. Care should be taken to ensure that the canalization is appropriate for the size and length of the hair follicle being transplanted. The angle of the canal should also be well adjusted to obtain the most natural image.

3. Transplant of the follicles into canals

In the final stage, the harvested follicles are inserted into the canals one by one at an angle of 40-45 degrees, and the hair transplantation is completed.

The most modern technology in hair transplantation is the FUE technique, a microsurgical procedure performed under local anesthesia, in which the follicles are harvested with the help of a micromotor. This technique is the basis for all hair transplantation methods.

The main stages are the same in all hair transplantation techniques. The follicles are harvested, canals are created and the harvested follicles are transplanted into these canals. The differences that distinguish the hair transplant methods from each other are the device used in the harvest the follicles, the medical instruments used in the canalization and transplantation, and these differences lead to different names for the hair transplant techniques.


  • The operation lasts 6-8 hours on average. In principle, general anesthesia is not performed during the procedure and the patient does not receive narcosis. The patient, who is given local anesthesia or sedation, completes the procedure while talking.
  • Since hair transplantation is performed under local anesthesia, the sensation of pain is minimal. Another method used in addition to local anesthesia is sedation.
  • The patient needs to allow only 3 days for the preparation and post-processing of the hair transplant. This 3-day process looks like this;

1st day:

Hair transplantation and PRP treatment are performed.

3rd day:

The patient is checked, the hair is washed and what to do next is explained.

It takes 6 to 12 months to see final results.
