Deliberating on an institution to undertake a Hair Transplant is hard (even harder for foreigners) when one is already considering having one. It seems like every medical institution you come across claims to offer better services than the last one you viewed.
Medical institutions are not making it any easier for potential hair transplant candidates. Some go as far as promising a 100% success rate, while others rule out the possibility of side effects. But not all surgical institutions are as good as they claim to be —well, be wary of any institution that pressures you to have a hair transplant at their clinic.
Asking for recommendations and looking at the online reviews on the clinic’s landing page is a starting point for many who consider having a hair transplant —but it is not enough. There have to be more questions to be asked, and several factors to consider.
So, this blog post will highlight three crucial points:
- The importance of an institution that patient is going to get the service
- Top hair transplant clinics in Turkey
- Acıbadem Hospitals‘ results for hair transplant.
But before we dive into the main issues of this blog post, let's start by giving context to this post by defining a Hair Transplant.
What is a Hair Transplant?
Although it may sound self-explanatory, a hair transplant can be defined as a plastic surgery procedure that is used to treat hair loss. Hair follicles are moved from one area with adequate hair growth (known as a donor site) to an area that has lost hair.
Hair transplants are usually associated with head baldness, but the procedure can also combat baldness on the chest, chin and it can restore eyelashes and eyebrows.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) are the two techniques used in the hair transplant procedure. The FUE method involves harvesting single hair follicles from the donor area and transplant in the bald area, whereas in the FUT technique, the follicles are grafted as a barnet.
Depending on the technique recommended by your surgeon, the hair transplant surgery usually takes between 4 and 12 hours.
Not everyone is an suitable candidate for this surgical procedure. One has to first have a donor area in any part of his/her body. People who usually form keloids scars after an incision may have some complications that may negatively affect the surgery results.
What determines the importance of an institution?
The success of any surgical procedure (hair transplant included) is determined by the institution where you have it. There are so many hair transplant institutions in Turkey. Some are good, some are better and some are...
The equation of the importance of hair transplant institution is pretty easy to figure out: good surgical institutions = good results and better medical institutions = better results.
