What happens during a hair transplant?
After your scalp is completely cleaned, the surgeon uses a small needle to numb an area of your head with local anesthesia.
Two main methods are used to obtain follicles for transplantation: FUT and FUE.
In Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT):
The surgeon will use a scalpel to cut a strip of scalp skin from the back of the head. The incision is usually several inches long.
This incision is then closed with surgical sutures.
The surgeon then separates the removed portion of the scalp into small sections using a magnifying lens and a surgical scalpel. When implanted, these sections will help in achieving natural-looking hair growth.
In Hair Transplant (FUE):
Hair follicles are ejected directly from the back of the head through hundreds to thousands of tiny incisions.
The surgeon makes small holes with a blade or needle in the area of your scalp where the hair will be transplanted. Then they gently put the hair in these holes.
During a single treatment session, the surgeon may transplant hundreds or even thousands of hair roots.
After that, you will cover your scalp with gauze or bandages for a few days.
A hair transplant session can take four hours or more. The lumps will be removed about 10 days after the surgery in the first method.
Sometimes you may need up to three or four sessions to get a full head transplant. When the sessions are spaced out for several months, it leads to a full recovery after each transplant.

Your scalp may be sore, and you may need to take medications after hair transplantation, such as:
- Pain killer.
- Antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection.
- Anti-inflammatory medications to prevent swelling.
- Most people can return to work several days after surgery.
It is normal for the transplanted hair to fall out two to three weeks after the operation.
This in turn makes room for new hair growth. Most people see some amount of new hair growth 8 to 12 months after the procedure.
Many doctors prescribe minoxidil (Rogaine) or finasteride (Propecia) to improve hair regrowth. These medications also help slow or stop future hair loss.
What are the complications associated with hair transplantation?
Hair transplant side effects are usually minor and disappear within a few weeks.
It can include:
- Swelling of the scalp.
- Bruising around the eyes.

Usually, hair growth continues in people who have undergone hair transplantation in Turkey in the transplanted areas of the scalp.
The new hair may appear thicker or less dense, depending on:
- Scalp sagging, or how saggy the scalp is.
- Density of follicles in the transplanted area.
- The thickness or quality of the hairs.
If you're not taking medications (such as minoxidil or finasteride) or have low-level laser therapy, you may continue to experience hair loss on untreated areas of your scalp.
It is important to discuss the expected outcome with your surgeon and set realistic expectations.
Types of hair transplantation via FUE technique
Hair transplantation via (Sapphire) FUE
The Sapphire FUE hair transplant method is an innovative, advanced version of the traditional FUE technique. The main difference is that the excised hair units are implanted using a sapphire blade, not a hard metal.
With the help of the new hollow V-shaped needle tip, the scalp is penetrated precisely and gently. As a result, the patient experiences significantly fewer secondary bleeding or scarring.
Sapphire FUE is the result of years of research for the benefit of patients.
With the help of this new approach, one can achieve up to 30% increase in hair thickness compared to the old methods. Moreover, wounds caused by it can heal up to 20% faster.
What are the methods of hair transplantation in Turkey that are practiced through Bimaristan Center?
Here are the different types of FUE that can be done:
After they are removed from the donor area, the grafts (hair with follicles) are placed outside the body for a period of time in a special organic nutritional solution.
This solution contains biotin, which aims to stimulate the growth of follicle cells. In this way, we increase the chance of the natural follicles becoming new, giving you full hair for a long time.
FUE hair transplantation
This hair transplant method is also a type of FUE. So, the way the surgery is performed itself. The only difference here is how the hair is treated before it is transplanted.
In this case, the grafts are really subjected to cold shock by placing them in a special solution and keeping them at a very cold temperature.
This biotin-rich solution protects individual hair from any damage and stimulates cell growth.
Low temperature helps extend the life and vitality of hair follicles.
Thus, ICE hair treatment has a higher success rate and gives more viable results in the long run.
Mega FUE Hair Transplant
With the traditional FUE method of hair transplantation, about 4000 grafts are removed and then inserted into the recipient area. But what if balding areas need more hair to restore the full look of your hair?
A new procedure called "mega FUE" is now taking place. With this advanced hair transplantation method, more than 5000 follicles can be removed and transplanted in one session.
This saves you from having to undergo the same procedure two or more times if you have multiple bald spots. Since the hair follicles are also removed with a hollow needle, you will not have scars after the surgery, as I explained studies.

Direct hair transplant technique via Dhi Choi Choi Pens
It is the latest method of hair transplantation done through the use of Choi Pens (Dhi Choi) so that the extraction is done in the classical way, but the cultivation is done directly without opening a channel.

As the goal of this application is to speed up the healing time, and contribute to reducing the side effects resulting from hair transplantation such as redness or swelling as well as pain in the transplanted area as it works to promote the fastest possible hair growth.

This device has a piston-driven motor and uses pneumatic pressure to essentially suction out individual hair follicles.
Then he applies controlled air pressure again to insert the grafts into the scalp.
This treatment is initially attractive to patients because it does not require scalpel incisions or sutures. However, the suction process of the device can damage the hair grafts.
They also use a larger piercing size, which may result in visible scarring.
While it may achieve a greater number of grafts in a single session, it offers much less control and accuracy when compared to the manual FUE technique.
Patients should also be wary of unqualified technicians performing this procedure.
In some clinics, there are doctors who are not specialized in hair transplantation who perform the entire process.
Hair transplantation in Turkey via ARTAS robot
It is another technique that some surgeons use to extract the follicle unit. In theory, enjoy ARTAS . system With an advantage because the robotic machine can't get tired during extraction.
However, this crucial step requires the kind of technical insight that can only be achieved when the actual surgeon performs the procedure.
Extracting with ARTAS is much slower, and does not offer the same level of accuracy.

The best hair transplant method for you depends largely on your current hair condition.
All methods aim to give you a full head of hair and confidence again. The old FUT method suggests that the surgeon takes a slice of the donor's skin and then extracts hair follicles from it.
