About the Department of Hair Transplantation at Avrupa Sac Ekimi Clinic Istanbul

The Department of Hair Transplantation at the Avrupa Sac Ekimi Clinic Istanbul offers high-quality operations for hair growth restoration in patients with alopecia, as well as cosmetic procedures for hair growth stimulation, restoration of hair density and aesthetic appearance. The department's specialists provide medical services to both men and women. The therapeutic options of the department include not only hair transplantation on the head, but also procedures for hair transplantation on the beard and eyebrows. Only experienced and highly qualified doctors with more than 10 years of successful experience in this specialization work with the patients. The Chief Physician of the department is Dr. med. Mehmet Guclu.

The problem of hair loss can occur in both men and women, so the department has all the resources for the treatment of alopecia of various origins – due to genetic predisposition, hormonal imbalance, somatic pathologies (for example, anemia, hypothyroidism, depression, stress, etc.), unbalanced diet, frequent hair styling using harmful hairdressing products, etc. Before hair transplantation, the department's doctors carry out an accurate examination, study the patient's medical history and, if possible, try to solve the problem using conservative methods. To treat the initial stages of alopecia, the doctors use natural oils, adjust the diet, and if necessary, prescribe such medications as Minoxidil and Finasteride (the second one can be prescribed only for men). Such effective cosmetic methods as PRP therapy and low-level laser therapy (LLLT) can be used in women. If conservative methods do not give any positive dynamics, and the patient's hair loss does not stop, the doctors resort to surgical techniques. The clinical practice involves the use of the most effective methods of hair transplantation – FUE and micro FUE, Sapphire FUE and DHI. These procedures help to restore active hair growth, once and for all relieving a person from problems and complexes caused by alopecia.

Any surgical intervention is necessarily preceded by a consultation, during which the specialized doctor examines the patient and decides on the most appropriate transplantation technique. Depending on the chosen procedure and the stage of alopecia, the hair is partially or completely shaved off. Prior to the collection of hair follicles, the doctor applies anesthesia in the donor site. Then, with an automatic device, he collects the required number of hair grafts. The hair transplantation using the Sapphire FUE method involves the use of a special instrument with sapphire tips, while in the case of DHI technique, the doctor uses a special implanter pen called CHOI. The transplantation of grafts is preceded by the formation of channels in the skin of the recipient site for their further placement – this process is also carried out under anesthesia. The final stage of the hair transplantation procedure is the transplantation of the collected donor material to the target area.

The hair transplantation surgeries are performed in specially equipped operating rooms, in strict compliance with clinical protocols and hygiene standards. The high-quality anesthesia relieves the patient from pain and provides maximum comfort during the entire operation. After the operation, the patient receives recommendations for further care of the transplanted hair. It will be possible to assess the final result of the operation in 7-9 months.
