Hair Transplant

Falling hair is nowadays almost everyone's problem. The biggest causes of hair loss are increasing stress ratio in our age and poor diet. In addition, the influence of genetic factors on hair loss is also a known fact.

It is possible to permanently regain lost hair by hair transplant. Hair Transplant is the process of transferring hair follicles from the region between two ears on the nape which has been coded not to suffer hair loss, to the region with hair loss by proper techniques.

Nowadays, it's often applied by two methods:

Follicular Unit Extraction ( FUE)

It is transferring hair follicles one by one from the nape or various parts of the body to the region of hair loss with fine-tipped special needles. No sutures are applied so there are no surgery scars.

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT )

It is transferring the scalp taken from intact and healthy area on the nape to the region of hair loss in such a way as to accommodate hair and hair follicles by maintaining their natural structure.
