What is a hair transplant?

Many people associate full, strong hair with youth and vitality. It is distressing when hair begins to thinn, affecting self-confidence and feelings about yourself. Whether it is due to family predispositions, lifestyle, or hormonal balance, men often suffer from hair loss at a young age. Many sufferers feel uncomfortable due to a receding hairline, bald spots, or baldness.

A hair transplant can fill in bald spots, which has improved the well-being of many of our patients. Scalp hair transplantation is a minimally invasive procedure in which we remove healthy hair from the donor area (usually the back of the head) and insert it into the bald areas affected by hair loss. This is how you get your formerly natural hair to look back without pain or lengthy treatments.

Our specialists at Turkeyana are not only experts in high-quality FUE head hair transplants but also passionate about helping you regain your confidence. With our many years of experience and tried-and-tested treatment methods, we offer solutions individually tailored to your hair type, type of hair loss, and wishes.

Types of hair transplantation

Hair falls out for various reasons in different areas of the body. A tonsure forms on the top of the head, the receding hairline grows on the sides, and later, a large bald area develops on the head, the bald head. However, the hair on the crown of the head, eyebrows, beard, or eyelashes can also become thin and fall out entirely.

Areas into which hair can be transplanted

Modern hair transplantation techniques at the Turkeyana in Istanbul can effectively treat hair loss, from receding hairlines and bald spots to thinning eyebrows and eyelashes. Our doctors are ready to advise you on permanently regaining thick hair.

Hair transplant procedure

The procedure begins with a detailed consultation and examination by a doctor. As always, in aesthetic and plastic surgery, the doctor and patient must agree on the wishes, expectations, and what is medically feasible and decide together on the best way to achieve this. This is assisted by before-and-after photos, which are shown during the consultation and which patients can use to see how successful a hair transplant can be.

In this way, the best method can be chosen in each case, with the required amount of transplantable hair obtained as gently and safely as possible to cover the sparse areas. We understand that each patient is unique and tailor our approach to meet your needs. Of course, the price is also discussed and calculated individually.

Once the patient has decided on a hair transplant, they only must come to the clinic once for treatment.

On the day of the operation, the exact procedure is determined, lines are finally drawn, and the donation area is shaved. The hairs are then removed individually (FUE) or as a strip (FUT), processed, and reinserted individually.

The duration of the operation varies between half a day and a full day, depending on the area or the amount of hair. The patient’s comfort is our priority; the procedure is performed under local anesthesia and, if desired, in semiconscious sedation. The same applies to the minimally invasive, non-surgical techniques. Both techniques can be performed on an outpatient basis. An overnight clinic stay is optional; you can go home after the final medical examination, but you should not drive yourself.

The new hairs only sometimes grow immediately. Often, the hair will fall out after some time. This is not a big deal because it is not isolated hair that has been transplanted but complete hair follicles with their roots. These roots sometimes repel the old hair, which is only a few millimeters long, before they start producing a new one, which remains permanent.

FUE – Follicular Unit Extraction

FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction and is currently the most modern and gentle treatment against hair loss.

The experienced specialists at Turkeyana are to use the manual and mechanical FUE methods in a single treatment. At Turkeyana, we use the FUE method because it is the gentlest treatment for the patient and provides the best and most natural result. Combining the two techniques makes it possible to extract more hair quickly.

Unlike some providers who still rely on the FUT method, an outdated and invasive approach with a high risk of complications, Turkeyana exclusively uses the FUE method. This modern technique, known for its quicker recovery and less visible scarring, removes individual hair follicles, ensuring a more comfortable experience for the patient and a more natural result.

At Turkeyana, we have pioneered new, innovative treatment methods. Our commitment to using only the best and most effective treatments sets us apart from other providers in the industry.

How does the FUE method work?

During an FUE hair transplant, the hair follicles are individually removed from areas with high, dense hair growth—usually on the back or side of the head—and then inserted into the exposed areas so the scalp is covered with hair growth again.

Our team of highly skilled and experienced doctors at Turkeyana specializes in treating hair loss. With their expertise, we can achieve natural results that consider both the hair structure and the direction of growth, ensuring the best possible outcome for our clients.

Turkeyana uses a unique motorized FUE instrument. This device has decisive advantages: the probability of a successful transplant is much higher, and the patient’s comfort is significantly improved. We can remove the hair much more quickly and precisely, reducing treatment time dramatically. In addition, the healing process is much faster, and the treatment only leaves microscopic scars that are not visible to the naked eye.



The Costs

The hair transplantation costs at the Turkeyana in Istanbul are always calculated individually, considering the area to be covered, the amount of hair (grafts) required, the removal technique, and costs for the duration, aids, and anesthesia. This transparent pricing approach ensures that you only pay for your needed services.

Patients at the Turkeyana in Istanbul receive a binding offer during the consultation once they have spoken to the doctor and he has examined them.

Hair transplantation costs largely depend on the number of grafts that must be transplanted. Fewer grafts are needed for small areas like the eyebrows than for a completely bald head, so the costs can range between € 2,000 and € 8,000.

Everything is to assure you that you are in safe hands…
