Hair Transplant

Dr. Caner Kaçmaz

General Information

The cause of hair loss is often genetic but temporary or permanent hair loss may also occur due to stress, hormonal disorders, some skin diseases, vitamin deficiencies, and some infectious agents.

Preoperative Evaluation

The skin and hair types of the person are evaluated. The hair density in the donor area at the back of the scalp, which is one of the most important determinants of operation success, is evaluated. A hair transplant is planned based on the number of hair follicles (grafts) intended to be transplanted.


Hair transplant that can be performed under local anesthesia or under sedation for sensitive patients takes 4 to 5 hours on average. Today, FUE technique is used as the most modern hair transplant procedure. It is a three-stage procedure. In the first stage, the hair follicles in the donor area (back of the head, nape of the neck) are extracted with the help of a micro-motor, and then they are divided into certain groups.

In the second stage, appropriate number of channels is opened at the appropriate angle in the bald area, in accordance with the transplantation plan made based on the number of grafts extracted (obtained hair follicles). In the last stage, the grafts obtained are placed in the channels in an appropriate way. The operation is ended by dressing the application area. In some cases, FUT and FUE techniques are used in conjunction with each other to increase the number of grafts to be obtained. For patients deemed to need, PRP derived from the patient's own blood (platelet-rich plasma) can be injected into the recipient area, in order to improve the nutrition of grafts.

After Operation

After the operation, the patient is given information about the cream, shampoo and drugs to be used, and then he or she is discharged. Pain is rare and can be managed with simple pain relievers. Patients can return to their daily activities within 2 to 3 days. It may take up to 1 week for the scalp scabs to completely fall off. Some of the transplanted hair follicles fall off in the first 3 postoperative weeks. At the end of the 6-12 month period, the targeted density is achieved.
