Patients wonder how hair transplantation is done as a natural behavior before deciding hair transplantation according to the researches, and they make investigation on this subject and they try to find answers for these questions by watching hair transplantation videos via social media.
Hair transplantation consists of two stages. First, the hair follicles existing on the non-shedding scalp are extracted one by one, then the extracted hair follicles are placed one by one along the hairless area desired to be haired. The operation is completed while the patient is in lying position in the first stage and he/she is in sitting position on an orthopedic armchair during the second stage. For this reason, the operation will be completed while the patient feels no pain during 6-8 hours in a comfortable way.
What does hair transplantation mean?
Hair transplantation, which can be applied on both men and women and performed under local anesthesia, is a surgical operation that offers a definite and permanent solution to baldness.
Are there any scars left after hair transplantation?
With the advanced methods there are absolutely no scars left on the scalp. Transplantations performed with the fue method are the best examples for this.
Is there an age limit for hair transplantation?
This procedure can be performed on anybody aged between 20-65. Unlike other surgical operations, there is not really an age limit for hair transplantation operation. The reason is usually hair loss that begins at an early age and later its spread to larger areas also becomes a factor.

Let us look at the steps of hair transplantation primarily in order to evaluate the methods of hair transplantation:
- To shorten or shave the hair
- To make planning on the area to be transplanted
- To anesthetize the area with local anesthesia
- To collect the roots
- To prepare the roots for transplantation
- To transplant the hair into new places

Hair transplant can only be made with hair follicles taken from the person’s own donor area. The person’s hair follicle resource is the hair follicles programmed not to shed in the area (donor area) between two ears.
Does hair color matter in respect of hair transplant? Is white hair suitable for hair transplant?
Hair transplant operation is a process that can be applied for everybody whose donor area is sufficient. Your hair color and shape don’t matter.

Limp appearance of hairs, thinning of hairs and the most important hair shedding are the major ones among the most significant disturbing issues. Some mistakes made in hair care during daily lives in addition to environmental, genetic and bodily factors, may lead to hair loss. Frequent use of chemicals such as hair dyes, jelly; tying hairs very tight and continuously in same way; always having blow-dries and particularly caring with hair shaper to wet hairs, are some of them.
To care our hairs with shampoo and cream will not be an adequate treatment. If the rate of loss is out of normal values, we have the chance to turn your hair into former condition through many supporting treatment methods as well as shampoo and cream and to provide a much more fresh appearance. According to the state of the person among them, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), Hair DNA and Fresh Cell Method are the treatment methods that can be applied in our clinic and recognized worldwide.
