About the Department of Hair Transplantation at SALUSS Hair Transplantation Clinic Antalya

The Department of Hair Transplantation at the SALUSS Hair Transplantation Clinic Antalya offers the full range of modern therapeutic procedures for hair loss. The department specializes in the surgical interventions for alopecia treatment, as well as in the conservative cosmetic procedures for the restoration of the density and beauty of hair. The patients can undergo hair transplantation not only in the head, but also in the beard and eyebrow. The Chief Physician of the department is Assoc. Prof. Dr. med. Ragip Ozdemir.

The department annually performs about 600 hair follicle transplants using FUE and DHI methods. In 95% of cases, the department's doctors achieve excellent results in alopecia treatment, thanks to which they have gained prestige at both national and international levels.

The main clinical focuses of the department include:

  • Sapphire FUE hair transplantation. The first stage of the procedure is anesthesia in order to eliminate pain and provide the patient with maximum comfort. As soon as the anesthesia begins to work, the doctor makes incisions to collect the hair follicles at the correct angle, with sufficient depth and with uniform density in the donor site. At this stage, the doctor uses special sapphire blades, which, in comparison with their metal analogues (in the case of a classic FUE procedure), do not lose their sharpness and provide minimal tissue trauma during the collection of follicles, which ensures faster recovery. The incisions with a sapphire blade promote follicular growth, so the transplanted hair has a better chance of settling and regrowing. These blades allow placing more follicles per square centimeter, which guarantees denser new hair growth. The duration of the surgery is 6 to 8 hours. The hair follicles can be transplanted not only to the head, but also to the mustache, beard and eyebrows. The final result of the operation is achieved in 12-18 months.
  • DHI hair transplantation in men. The essence of the procedure is hair transplantation using a special instrument – the CHOI implanter pen. The doctor collects hair follicles from the donor site (in most cases, the back of the head) using a micro device, after which they are placed in a special solution for a while. The doctor then places the treated hair follicles in the CHOI implanter pen without damaging them. The grafts are transplanted to the scalp, taking into account the direction of hair growth and the wishes of the patient. The procedure is painless. The CHOI implanter pen is disposable and used only for a specific patient.
  • DHI hair transplantation in women. Women rarely resort to hair transplantation, but in the case of female pattern baldness, alopecia, hairline distortion they require a professional solution to these problems. As with the DHI hair transplantation for men, the grafts are collected from the back of the head, which are transplanted to the areas with reduced hair growth. In some cases, the hair follicles are collected not from the back of the head, but from other parts of the body. Depending on the severity of the clinical case, the procedure usually takes 4 to 6 hours. In the case of severe forms of alopecia, several procedures may be required. The intervention is performed under local anesthesia. The patient does not feel any pain and does not require hospitalization.
  • Beard and moustache hair transplantation. To restore hair growth in the beard, the doctors use the Sapphire FUE technique. The hair grafts are collected from the back of the head, after which they are transplanted to the beard or mustache, where there is no hair.
  • Eyebrow hair transplantation. The procedure is designed to restore natural and beautiful eyebrows in people with thin eyebrows, scars and burns in the eyebrow area, asymmetric eyebrows, etc. To transplant hair into the eyebrow area, the very latest latest DHI technique is used. The doctors use the back of the head as a donor site. Before transplanting grafts into the eyebrow, the doctor carefully listens to the patient's wishes regarding the shape of the eyebrows, and also takes into account his face shape in order to form an eyebrow line that will be most suitable for the facial features of a certain person. After the transplantation, a certain period of time is required for the eyebrows to grow back well and take the required shape. 
  • PRP therapy for hair treatment. The essence of the procedure is to inject platelet-rich plasma treated with a special activator into the scalp. Plasma helps to stimulate hair growth and fight hair loss. This treatment method does not cause any allergic reactions, does not affect the function of the liver and kidneys, since it does not contain any chemicals. PRP therapy is a safe and effective procedure. To achieve the best possible results, it is recommended to carry out at least 5-6 procedures. The treatment results last for two or more years.
  • Scalp mesotherapy. This treatment also aims to stimulate hair growth and improve its appearance. When performing the procedure, the doctor injects solutions with beneficial substances into the scalp, which strengthen the hair follicles and ensure the supply of nutrients to them. Mesotherapy is suitable for all hair types. The optimal course of treatment is from 8 to 10 procedures, which are carried out once a week. After the session, the patient must not wash his hair, sunbathe, drink alcohol, do massage and go to the bathhouse or sauna for several days. The effect after a course of hair mesotherapy will be noticeable in a month, while the best possible results will be achieved six months after the therapy.
  • Scalp trichopigmentation. With this procedure, one can solve problems such as hair loss, thin hair, alopecia areata, scars, postoperative scars on the scalp. In the process of tricopigmentation, the dye is injected into the upper layer of the skin using a special apparatus. Each point repeats an individual hair follicle. A specialist manually draws each hair, which creates the effect of hair density in the places of its thinning. The tricopigmentation can be performed both in the presence of hair and on a shaved head. Depending on the situation, the pigment can be injected into the entire scalp or only in certain areas. The procedure is painless (sometimes it can cause minor discomfort, in this case a superficial anesthesia is administered to the patient), and also is very safe, since a special pigment almost never causes allergies. The effect is achieved in several sessions and lasts for about two years. Then it will be necessary to repeat the procedure.
