Hair Transplantation

How is Hair Transplantation Done?

Hair transplantation is a cosmetic procedure that aims to restore the hair of the patient through moving healthy hair follicles, also known as grafts, to the thinning or bald areas of the head. This procedure is used to treat genetic, hormonal hair loss or hair loss due to an injury or any other condition. Hair transplantation can also be utilized to restore eyelashes or the beard. If the patient does not have a sufficient amount of healthy hair on the back of the head, the arms or the chest may be used as the donor area.

Hair transfer is able to restore the hair, therefore creating a youthful appearance and boosting self-confidence.

Hair Transplantation by Fue Method

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a method of Hair Transplantation that has recently become popular over the Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) method. The FUE method starts by the healthy hair follicles being extracted through small punch incisions one by one from the donor area, which is usually the back and the sides of the head but can be arms or the chest as well.

The follicles are then implanted into the target area, where the hair is thinning or balding, through small holes. The transferred grafts continue growing in the target area, creating new hair. It is expected that 10% - 80% of the transplanted hair follicles will grow back.

The FUE method, unlike the FUT method, doesn’t utilize sutures, doesn’t leave scars, has less risks, has a shorter healing period, and has minimal side effects.

The FUE method is recommended to patients that have thinning hair or are balding, but still have sufficient healthy hair follicles to be transferred. A Hair Transplantation is not recommended to patients who suffer from AIDS or from chronic health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol.

Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) involves the removal of a linear strip of hair from the donor area including the scalp, and then implementing it into the recipient area. The FUT method results in scarring and numbness of the implemented area, as well as a slower recovery time.

Hair Transplant Process

Patients are greeted by the Booking Surgery staff right after leaving the airport and are brought to the hospital by Booking Surgery’s transport team. After the patient is checked in, their pre-op testing, including the necessary blood work, are performed. The patient is supervised during the day of the arrival and the hair transplantation procedure is performed the next day, the morning after the arrival. The procedure, in total, may take up to 9 hours. There are breaks in between the procedures. After the procedure, the patient will be supplied with a special lotion and shampoo as well as postoperative prescription medicine, and will be instructed regarding the recommended post operative care.

On the last day of the stay, the first hair wash after the surgery is performed and additional supporting treatments are provided.

The patient is then driven to the airport after their attending doctor clears them to fly.

The Basic Stages of Hair Transplantation

Before the Hair Transplant procedure the attending doctor does a consultation with the patient. The patient’s donor and the target areas are evaluated and the most viable hairline as well as grafts to be transplanted are determined. Pre-op tests are performed and evaluated to determine the eligibility for the surgery. The patient’s hair is then shaved.

Local anesthesia is administered and the Hair Transplant Specialist then uses a special tool to remove the grafts from the donor area. Once a sufficient number of grafts are extracted, they're placed in a plasma solution for temporary storage.

The Hair Transplant Specialist makes incisions on the target area, and the hair grafts are then transplanted to the target area. After the Hair Transplant is finished, both the donor and the target areas are cleaned and bandaged.

Patients will be prescribed medication, and will be supplied with a special lotion and shampoo. It is important to take care of the donor and target areas after the operation for a speedy recovery.

Honnêtement au début j'avais peur, mais javais Pierre qui de le début communiqué déjà avec moi via WhatsApp à tout moment il était disponible 7/7, 24/24. A mon arrivé à Istanbul on avait un chauffeur privé très sympathique qui est venu nous chercher à l'aéroport poir nous déposer à l'hôpital. Arrivé à l'hôpital j'ai été accueilli par Des infirmière très très gentil dont Ellie et des interprète et accompagnateur trooooooop sympathique dont Oscar et Stella. Je tien vraiment à remercier ses personnes la parce sans eux l'expérience serait peut être différent. Pierre avait déjà réussi à me mettre en confiance depuis que jetait encore à Bruxelles. Après ma chirurgie ils ont était au petit soin avec moi🥹. Et même à mon retour en Belgique j'ai Pierre qui continue à prendre de mes nouvelles et il sera présent tout au long. Un grand merci à Pierre,Oscar,Stella et Ellie. Vous allez beaucoup me manquer

Mags reviewed Excellent service with

I used for procedures at medistanbul with Dr Yalcin. From getting in contact to having the procedures the care has been second to none. The coordinators and interpreters have made everything seamless, many thanks to Lily, Morgan and Frank for all your help. The nursing staff are always at the end of the buzzer and the cleaners are popping in regularly with a smile and a mop. The food not so amazing but I didn’t come here for a gourmet experience! Would have no hesitation in returning or recommending this company.

I had a boob augmentation (implant under the muscle) this week at medistanbul with booking surgery and I arranged the booking with David a co-ordinater who was nothing short of brilliant and even came to see me post surgery to make sure things were all okay. Dr Yalcin did my surgery, post surgery care and took out my drains and was a lovely bloke who achieved everything I asked for and more. Lily - my interpreter helped me the whole time and even got me English tea and coffee into the hospital, she helped me with my payments and general healthcare. All of the nurses were so caring, considerate and made me feel comfortable. On my leaving day, I felt reassured and ready to leave. I will definitely be returning for more surgery in the future :)

Danielle selwood reviewed Incredible service 5☆ all the way!

FDL 360 & BREAST UPLIFT n IMPLANTS Op date 3rd June 2024 Under Dr Yalçin At Medistanbul Hospital Omg I honestly have so much to say! What a fantastic service from the moment I contacted them nearly a year ago. My coordinator was Deniz and nothing was to much. I was given all the information about surgeons, pictures of there plastic surgery work and the decision was mine. I chose Dr Yalçin🩺 Upon arrival in Istanbul Sunday 2nd June I was picked up and it all began. Loads of staff a lot of different faces and always an translators at all times. I meet Dr Yalçin Monday 8am he done his drawings in me and I went down about 8.30am. Pain was manageable, nurses would come when you buzzed. Dr visited very day to check on all my wounds. Honestly just so incredibly grateful to Dr Yalçin and his team, 20yrs I waited and you made all my dreams come true in 1 day. Plus he has the loveliest smile you will see in your day. I had a few peeks and the wounds and stitching look phenomenal. If only Dr Yalçin new how much is amazing work literally changes people's lives. Thank you so much ;-) Big shout out to Lily and the whole translators and Booking Surgery Team. Would 💯 recommend to anyone asking and i know where to come if I'm ever looking for something else in future (Maybe thigh n arms we will see)! Though my husband did say next time we come to Turkey 🇹🇷 it's for a holiday😜 Take Care All Danielle Selwood

Jo Davis reviewed Breast uplift with implant…

I had a breast uplift with implant through BookingSurgery.Com on 3rd June 2024, and my partner had dental work done by them too whilst we were there. My partner and I used this company through personal recommendation from someone he knew who had used them for weight loss surgery and then for plastics/reconstructive surgery after. After hearing "horror stories" about surgeries abroad, it was important to get it right. I initially contacted BookingSurgery.Com through their website and a coordinator named Robert Campbell followed up my enquiry through WhatsApp message. After discussion about breast augmentation, Robert consulted with the surgery team and came back to me with a recommendations and quote from two surgeons. The recommendation was breast uplift with implant. I was very happy that the quote included transfers from airport to hospital, the surgery and medications, three meals a day for myself and a companion and their overnight stay too. To secure the price I only had to pay a £100 deposit and the outstanding balance didn't need to be paid until my surgery date. Robert asked me when I'd like to come for my surgery, I gave him an ideal date and he secured it. Robert was a brilliant coordinator, very polite and responded to my queries in good time, liaised with the surgeon and informed me accordingly at all times. When it came to the time for us to come to Turkey, the person who met us off the plane (Gurçan) was very friendly, helpful and a good driver. The cab had WiFi we could connect to which was great. (We also had the same driver who took us back to the airport for our return flight.) We arrived at the hospital and were met by a very happy, welcoming friendly translator called Stella who showed us to our room and explained what would happen next (as you have your pre-op on the day of arrival.) The consent form was very transparent on the surgery I was receiving, what to expect and any risks associated with the procedure which meant I could make an informed choice. The hospital we were at was called Yasam and the rooms, corridors etc were very clean and nice. The nurses were friendly and the care received was of a high quality. The cleaners were friendly and polite too. We had our own bathroom and smart tv and were comfortable. My partner's coordinator, Nora, arranged affordable transfers using the BookingSurgery.Com drivers to take him to the dental hospital in the city where he had his prep work and crowns fitted. The following day was surgery day and I met with my surgeon (Dr Nebil) and the anaesthetist. Dr Nebil really listened to what I was hoping to achieve and very informative. Before going down for surgery, the nurse gave me a sedative as general procedure. I was very happy with the results of my surgery and glad that I followed Dr Nebil's advice of implant with the uplift. His work is amazing! The nurses looked after me very well and the Dr visits you every single day to check on your progress and to answer any questions. There's always a translator on site which makes communication no issue. Pain relief and medications are all included in the care during hospital and when you go home. You receive an information pack to go home with which gives you very detailed advice on how to care for yourself following surgery including when you can resume normal activities such as driving, exercise, sunbathing etc. There are fit to fly letters, medication list with instructions on how to use, all tests taken prior to surgery, and after with the results, and a detailed write up on the surgery process, what was performed and how. I have photocopies of the boxes that my implants came in with serial numbers, details etc, and also contact info for a post op coordinator should there be any issues or if my recovery isn't as explained in the letter. This is very reassuring that BookingSurgery.Com are still looking after me once home. There were 4 translators in the hospital who were all helpful but I want to give a special mention to Stella and Oscar who I felt were more like friends. I met some lovely people on my ward who were all with BookingSurgery.Com for various procedures and having them to talk with definitely helped in terms of company and what to expect in regards of recovery etc. Before leaving Yasam hospital, I was very happy that I was able to have a photo taken with my Dr and translators, and am so happy that I chose to use BookingSurgery.Com

This is my 2nd time with Bookingsurgery. Both bariatric and plastics. The nurses and surgeons and translators are amazing. The care they provide is so much better than the UK. You want for nothing, I’ve need help this time and they are with you in minutes. I wouldn’t hesitate to come back again. Dr Nabil, Nadia, Oscar and the whole team thank you for changing my life
