Most Famous Hair Transplant Techniques in Istanbul
Hair transplant treatment can be performed with different techniques, depending on the needs of each patient.
FUE Hair Transplant
The most performed technique is FUE Hair transplant. It is one of the newest methods, thanks to the latest medical technologies. Every graft is extracted one by one, so no scars will appear at the donor areas at the back of the head. After the extraction, micro-cuts for canal opening are made on the bald and receding parts of the hair. The final step is the graft implantation into canals.
It lasts about 6 to 8 hours, and with FUE Hair transplant, a maximum of 5,000 grafts per session can be implanted. According to the ISHRS, over 90% of the surgeons chose this technique because of the excellent results patients can achieve.
DHI Hair Transplant
DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) is a technique used when the patient prefers Unshaven FUE, or the patient wants to have higher density at the frontline. It is the most performed technique for women’s hair transplant as there is no need to shave the head completely, just the donor area.
With this technique, the grafts are extracted and after extraction, the grafts implanted directly with Choi Pen. That means opening the canal and implantation of the grafts are done at the same time. Choi pen enables to implant the grafts with a very precise angle. With DHI hair transplant, the maximum number of grafts per session are 2,500. It is usually used for eyebrow, beard, and moustache or front hairline transplantation.
Sapphire Hair Transplant
Percutaneous Hair Transplant or Sapphire hair transplant follows the same procedure as the FUE hair transplantation. It uses a different method and material for the canal opening: a special sapphire blade. This superfine blade can make very tiny holes, just the exact size as the graft. This technique provides a faster healing process.
When Is The Best Moment To Travel For Hair Transplantation?
Spring is one of the best moments to travel to Istanbul for hair transplantation. The weather is good: not too hot, not too cold and the sun is not very intense. After a hair transplant, you should avoid sweating too much or being under the sun for a long time, affecting the healing process.
If you travel to Turkey for the treatment in spring and even in summer, you can still enjoy the city without worrying how the weather will affect the results of the treatment. It is also a great time to visit parks, monuments and have a çay in one of the cafes around the city.
