How is hair transplantation for women in Turkey?
Hair transplantation mainly depends on the transfer of hair follicles from one place to another, meaning that the doctor transfers the hair follicle from the back of the head or from the sides to the front of the scalp.
The dermatologist or plastic surgeon takes grafts from a hairy area called (the donor area), often the donor area is the back of the head where the hair is thick there. These grafts are placed in the front of the scalp and the front of the head is called (the recipient area).
The hair transplant process takes place through several sessions, where in each session a part of the follicles is transferred to the recipient area.
Recently, the techniques used to take and cultivate grafts have been developed. Where modern technologies have been introduced to assist in the operation, for example, a robot was used to perform the operation and to install grafts accurately and with better results.

- If the follicles were removed by robot, no linear scars were seen at the site of the excision
- In one session, the doctor can transplant thousands of follicles (hair roots)
- This method requires several sessions separated by months to allow for a full recovery

|Features||The least expensive method among the rest.||The latest method that can be performed with advanced minimally invasive robotic devices, gives better results and is less likely to have complications.||This method is considered somewhat safe, in addition to the fact that the recovery period after the operation is relatively short, and this method is often considered the best option in cases of androgenetic alopecia.|
