What is Hair Transplant?

Hair Transplantation is the outpatient surgical procedure of transplanting hair from one part of the scalp, called the donor site, to another, called the recipient site. In other words, a hair transplant operation is a hair redistribution process, consisting in the transplantation of hair from dense areas into hair loss areas.

It is a loss of hair treatment and a permanent cure for baldness, as donor hair is immune to the DHT hormone that causes male pattern baldness, also known as androgenic alopecia. Hair transplant in Turkey is the preferred choice of tens of thousands of patients who travel to Istanbul to restore thinning hair, receding hairline and boost hair regrowth every year.

At MCAN Health, we take care of our patients at every step of their journey, picking them up from the airport, scheduling all transportations, hotel bookings and medical services.

Hair Transplant Cost Turkey 2022

The cost of hair transplant in Turkey depends on a series of factors, including the selected hair loss treatment, the degree of hair loss, the different hair transplant packages and the hair loss clinic in Turkey. The average cost of a hair transplant in Turkey is €2350, which equals approximately 2015 Pounds Sterling. The minimum cost is €1400, and the maximum cost is €3300. The reasons explaining the affordable hair transplant costs in Turkey are the lower value of the currency compared to the euro, dollar and pound, along with Turkish government subsidies for hair transplant and hairline treatment operationsand the high competition in the market.

The incredibly high demand for hair loss treatments means that Turkish hair transplant surgeons are more experienced than their European or American counterparts. That’s why, to the question: how much is a hair transplant in Turkey? The answer is: hair transplant results in Turkey are not only better than in Europe, but also much cheaper. Remedies for hair loss are included in the different hair transplant packages designed for each patient.

Hair transplant prices vary depending on the packages, but the average cost of hair transplant in Turkey does not rise above the mentioned price. The highest hair transplant cost in Turkey is approximately 2800 euros, including a 4 night stay at a 5-star hotel, needleless anesthesia, the best graft extraction treatment and all after-care products, allowing the best hair transplant Turkey results.

HAIR RESTORATION TECHNIQUES

MCAN Health offers different hair implant methods, according to each patient’s needs and expectations.

FUE Hair Transplant (via micromotors)

FUE Hair Transplant (Follicular Unit Extraction) is the most modern hair harvesting method famous for producing very limited scarring. Each follicle is extracted one by one with the help of micromotors with a 0.5-0.7mm diameter. These hair follicles are implanted carefully on the receding parts. The surgery is performed under local anesthesia and lasts for 6 to 8 hours. The final results of FUE Hair Transplant are seen 12 months after the operation.

FUE is the overall preferred method because:
  • It leaves no visible scars on the donor or recipient area
  • Results are more natural-looking
  • It is minimally invasive
  • It allows to transplant the maximum number of grafts in One single session
Fue Motor
Sapphire Hair Transplant Technique

Sapphire Hair Transplant(Sapphire blades)

Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant is the upgraded version of traditional FUE Hair Transplant.

Sapphire FUE follows the very same steps as the FUE technique. The only difference is that surgeons use sapphire blades for channel opening instead of steel material.

Sapphire FUE provides a more natural look and a higher-density hair implant. This is because canals are opened in a V-shape, with a natural-looking angle. Find the advantages of Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant compared to FUE Hair Transplant below:

Sapphire blades minimize the vibrations during canal opening. Tissue damage and trauma is thus prevented.Sapphire blades enable surgeons to open much smaller incisions compared to steel blades, which results in a faster healing period and a higher density hair implantation.Sapphire blades allow the most natural-looking hair transplant results.

DHI Hair Transplant (with CHOI Pens)

DHI hair transplant is an avant-garde hair implantation technique that uses a CHOI Pen to implant grafts on the receding and bald areas. While the extraction phase is the same as in the FUE and FUE Sapphire techniques, the difference with the DHI technique appears at the implantation step of the procedure: channel opening and implantation take place simultaneously.

Specialists use the CHOI Pen to implant grafts one by one, to achieve the best and most natural hair transplant results. In the DHI method, patients do not have to shave all of their hair, but just the donor area, making it a preferred technique for female hair transplant.

Hair Transplant Recovery and Aftercare

A hair transplant is a minimally invasive surgical procedure with very little chances of complication. All pain and soreness will be gone within the operation day, or the day after the operation. All redness and swelling can be expected to disappear within the first 15 days.

The donor area will take a little longer to heal, its recovery will be complete within a month, whereas beard hair grafts (if transplanted) are liable to be shaven even 7 days after the operation.

Our surgeons will assist you personally and adapt their medical after-care consultation to your individual case. On a general note, these are the steps you will need to follow:

Before Hair Transplant

Morten Before

In this phase, it is important to check all your medical and health conditions with your doctor. Some medicines to prevent hair loss should be stopped in advance. In case you are under any other kind of medication, you need to let the medical team know about it to provide the best treatment and services. In order to get the best result, it is recommended to stop alcohol and smoking a few days before the operation.

First Two Weeks After Hair Transplant

Morten First Two Weeks

Redness and swelling are expected to occur within the first week. It might become slightly more acute on the third day, but will be gone completely after seven days. In the second week, small scars might still be noticeable but will disappear during the first half of the second week. Afterwards, there will be no visible signs of operation on your head. Itching might still be felt, particularly in the donor area. Avoid all scratching, everything is on its way and special care is no longer needed.

2 Weeks to 2 Month After Hair Transplant

2 Weeks to 2 Month After
Hair Transplant

In 1 to 2 months after the operation, the implanted hair will start to grow(not as fast as the normal hair). But soon after the ‘shock loss’ will take place. The new, transplanted hair will fall out, only to grow back again in the coming months. This is perfectly normal, so don’t worry!

3 to 4 Month After Hair Transplant

3 to 4 Month After Hair Transplant

After the shaded hair on the recipient area starts to grow again, in 3 months after hair transplantation you will be able to cut your hair, but only with scissors! Continue to avoid all chemical products, both at home or at the hairdresser. Now your new hairs are placed and fixed firmly and you will experience a huge improvement at this stage!

4 to 6 Month After Hair Transplant

4 to 6 Month After
Hair Transplant

At the beginning of the 4th month transplanted grafts will now be 4 to 6 cm long and much thicker. All itchiness on both your donor and recipient areas will be practically gone as well as the scarring. At the end of the 6th month, you will be able to cut your hair in your desired model. In general condition buzz cuts with a shaving machine can be possible, however, we recommend you ask your doctor's idea if you do not see the result as is expected.

6 to 12 Month After Hair Transplant

 to 12 Month After Hair Transplant

In this period your hair will continue growing and thickening more and more. Patients must bear in mind that the best hair transplant results depend also on their own aftercare and their strict following the doctor’s instructions, avoiding chemical products, shaving machines, avoiding all sports for the first month after the operation, having a healthy diet and taking vitamins to support regrowth. Once you choose a good medical service provider and you take good care of your hair during the recovery time, congratulations you got your handsome look back!

Hair Transplant FAQ’S

Why hair loss happens?

Hair loss is a natural condition that may affect anyone in certain periods in life regardless of age, gender, or sex. Hair loss can be caused by different factors such as stress, hormonal disorders, and diet. Furthermore, hair loss can be genetic, seasonal, or a side effect of certain medicines. While some types of hair loss are permanent, some can be temporary. MCAN Health’s first aim is to understand the type of your hair loss. If it seems to be temporary, it is suggested that your hair loss progress is observed, and monitored during a waiting period. If it is necessary for you to have a hair transplant treatment, MCAN Health offers the best solution for your individual hair loss. The most important factor in hair transplant is the correct diagnosis by which the present and future reasons for the hair loss should be understood perfectly. Please read the following article to see if you are a fitting candidate for hair transplantation: 5 Things That Makes You The Perfect Hair Transplant Candidate.

How does a Hair Transplant work?

Hair transplant redistributes hair grafts to the areas where your hair is thinning or is bald. Your healthy hair follicles are collected from your donor area (where you have hair) and transplanted into the recipient areas where hair is needed. Hair transplant offers a permanent solution to the hair loss problem.

Which Type of Hair Transplant is Best?

The best hair transplant type is the one that is the most suitable for you and your needs. FUE is the most commonly used hair transplant method globally. It offers a pain-free and scarless hair transplant. Similar to the FUE Hair Transplant, the DHI and Sapphire Hair Transplant methods also offer outstanding results. Each of these types come with their own pros and cons. Choosing one over another depends on your unique needs and circumstances.

How Long Does a Hair Transplant Take?

This depends on the type of hair transplant and the number of grafts you get. But generally, a hair transplant takes around 6 to 8 hours. DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) might take longer depending on the number of grafts.

Does Hair Transplant Have any Side Effects?

A hair transplant is a safe treatment as long as it is performed by a qualified team. There might be some minor side effects such as temporary swelling and achiness on your scalp. This is nothing to worry about. You will be provided with medication after your hair transplant in case you experience any minor side effects.

How much is the cost for hair transplant in Turkey?

The cost of hair transplant in Turkey varies depending on the clinic and the hair transplant method. Turkey offers very high-quality hair transplants for affordable costs. On average, hair transplant in Turkey is 80% cheaper compared to hair transplant in the UK.

What is a good age to get a hair transplant?

A hair transplant is not generally advised for men under the age of 21. This is because:

  • The pattern and progression of hair loss have usually not been fully revealed at this early age
  • Hair loss may continue on other areas of the scalp, the patient may need other hair transplant treatments in the future
  • Recurring hair transplant may weaken the donor areas.

How long does hair transplant take to heal?

MA hair transplant is not an invasive surgery. For instance, it does not require general anaesthesia, it is performed under local anaesthesia. Therefore, the recovery period is not long. Most people go back to work 3 days after a hair transplant. However, you need to follow the after-care guideline properly to get the most successful results of your hair transplant.

Is hair transplant painful?

The procedure is pain-free to a degree. In fact, patients can listen to music, or watch a movie, and even fall asleep during the operation. However, there is a tolerable presence of minor pain during the anesthetic injection. For patients who do not want any needles, there is a needle-free option with a sedative chemical applied in the scalp via high-pressured air. You will absolutely feel nothing with this option.

Why are hair transplants so cheap in Turkey?

Compared to the UK and the rest of Europe, Turkey offers cost-effective hair transplants. There are two main reasons for this. Firstly, labour and operational costs are lower in Turkey. Secondly, the big exchange rate between the Turkish Lira (TRY) and the Euro (EUR) or Sterling (GBP); the TRY is not as strong as the GBP or EUR.

Do hair transplants last forever?

As the implanted hair is immune to fall, the hair redistributed with a hair transplant lasts forever. However, the rest of your hair (except the donor area) may fall naturally. That’s why we request our patients to watch their hair fall and confirm that their hair fall is on a slow pace to ensure the best results after their hair transplant.

How long does a hair transplant take to grow?

A few weeks after your hair transplant, your transplanted hair will fall out to then regrow again. This is absolutely normal. 6 months after your hair transplant, you will begin to see your new hair. 12 to 18 months after, you will see the final result of your hair transplant.

What is the success rate of hair transplant?

The standard success rate of hair transplant defined by ISHRS is 80%. At MCAN Health our success rate is over 90%.
