What is Hair Transplant vs Hair Implant in Turkey?

Before we get into the specifics of what a hair implant is, it is important that you understand the difference between a hair transplant and a hair implant in Turkey. To put it simply, the two are not the same, although they may sound similar.

FUE and FUT hair transplants are follicular unit extraction transplants. In simple terms, it’s where hair follicles are extracted one by one from one part of the body and implanted into balding areas on the scalp. The results lead to stronger, healthier hair that’s not only naturally yours but it’s not sensitive to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is a sex hormone which plays a role in ‘male’ characteristics such as hair. However, it’s also been linked to causing faster and premature hair loss. Since, hair transplants are not sensitive to DHT, it means there is less chance of losing the new hair.

On the other hand, hair implant in Turkey (also known as hair plug surgery) uses synthetic hair which is made to resemble the colour and texture of your natural hair and implanted to simulate hair follicles in the scalp. The main benefit of synthetic hair is that you don’t need to wait for the hair to grow. In fact, it will never grow but rather stay the same length, though it can be cut and styled. Hair implants are usually favoured for goals of adding volume or to correct receding hair lines.

It’s also important to remember that hair implants won’t stop your hair loss and shouldn’t be considered a ‘cure’ – it is only a procedure in which to add hair back to balding areas. For example, if you are looking for a hairline implant, you may notice that the hairline continues to recede even after the implant as it won’t stop this from happening.

If you’re looking for a pre-emptive measure, you should consult with your usual doctor to find the root cause of your issue. For example, among many causes, Alopecia is a common cause for hair loss.

Recovery Time for Hair Implants in Turkey:

FUE and FUT hair transplant procedure are minimally invasive and can take place on more than one side of the body. Normal bruising and swelling that comes with every invasive procedure may occur. This will quickly subside in less than two weeks.

On the other hand, hair implant in Turkey only has one procedure site which also presents as small puncture holes where the hair has been implanted. The wounds may not be visible through the hair. However, healing may take longer that FUE transplants since the wounds are slightly bigger, and the skin must grow over the base of the implant as part of the recovery process.

Hair Plug Transplant Methods

There are a few methods employed for hair implants. Here are a couple of examples:

  • Punch Graft – this is an older method. Still, it’s basically where a cylinder of hair-bearing skin, usually containing anywhere from 12 to 30 hairs, is placed in a punched area within the recipient area. However, sometimes the results can look ‘pluggy’.
  • Mini/Micro Graft – these methods involve cutting a thin strip of hair from the donor area, and stitching/stapling in the recipient area. Scars can remain. The main difference between the mini graft and the micrograft is the number of hairs within each graft. The mini graft typically contains three to eight hairs, while the micrograft contains anywhere from one to four.

While hair implants in Turkey can offer a solution to replacing lost hair, they are not always the best choice.

We appreciate that finding a trusted hair implant surgeon in Turkey is difficult. Undertaking thorough research into the healthcare provider to ensure they maintain safety, hygiene, and industry standards will ensure you are in safe hands.

Of course, prior to making any decisions, you should know the cause of your hair loss. This is important, as it will help you to make the best choice for both your current and future self.

Hair Implant Turkey FAQ’s

Why is Hair Implant Surgery Known as Hair Plug Surgery?

Hair plug surgery is another term used to described hair implant surgery. It’s simply due to the way hair implant surgery is carried out. Considered a more outdated form of hair transplant, surgeons punch out “plugs” (round sections of skin and hair follicles) from the back of your head. These plugs were about 4 millimetres (0.16 inches) across, and a surgeon would insert them into balding parts of your scalp. Over time, hair grafts became smaller, and the results became more natural. Nowadays, hair plug surgery i.e., hair implants are less fashionable than the modern-day techniques. Indeed, FUT and FUE are far more advanced and sophisticated methods of replenishing baldness.

Do Hair Implants Work?

If you’re looking for a simple way to thicken your hair for a fuller appearance, hair implants for men work well to achieve this effectively. So, in the sense that it will give you a thicker and fuller head of hair, then yes, hair implants do work well.

However, it is also important that the hair implant is not performed using hair follicles that may be affected by DHT (dihydrotestosterone), this is a male sex hormone which causes hair follicles to miniaturise and stop producing new hair over time. If the hair implant uses these follicles, then there may still be a risk that the hair will eventually miniaturise and fall out.

What Is a Hairline Implant?

A hairline implant in Turkey is the perfect option for men and women who are suffering from receding hair lines. Just like with usual hair implants for men, hair will be added to the hairline to cover any bald patches of thinning areas to bring the hairline back forward and create a fuller appearance.

As previously mentioned, this is an effective procedure to regain volume in the hairline, but it will not stop the hairline from continuing to recede ager the implant. If the root cause of your hair loss is not identified and pre-emptive measures taken to put a stop to the receding, then this could result in an unnatural look.

Could I Get a Hairline Implant in Turkey?

Both men and women of any age can choose to undergo a hair implant surgery in Turkey, and it is proven to be an effective cosmetic procedure for the appearance of hair thinning or loss. It is a safe and effective technique, although there are a couple of stipulations and requirements which patients must meet if considering hair implants for men or women.

  • Firstly, you must have a healthy scalp and be in a generally good health condition.
  • You must pass a tolerance test prior to the procedure.
  • You must have proper scalp hygiene and be willing to undertake appropriate scalp after-care.

What is the Recovery Period After a Hair Implant in Turkey?

Hair Implants Vs Hair Transplants: Which Should I Choose?

Our expert team will be happy to advise on any further guidance you may need to make an informed decision, however we have put together a couple of essential points we think you should be aware of.

For example, hair implants are a more outdated technique than transplants and provide a less natural finish. Despite this, the limitations on a hair implants effectiveness are not as high as a transplant because you do not need to rely on having the ability to grow hair on the thinning sections of your scalp, not to mention needing to rely on having enough healthy hair for the transplant in the first place, as implants use artificial hair.

Will Hair Plug Surgery (Hair Implants) cure male-pattern baldness?

As with any hair transplant procedure, hair plug surgery only covers the baldness, it is not a treatment nor is it a cure. The cause of your hair loss will still be present within the scalp. If something isn’t done to cure the cause of hair loss, you may lose the new hair achieved with hair plug surgery or other types of hair transplant.

For example, one of the leading causes of hair loss in those suffering from male-pattern baldness is sensitivity to DHT. This can be treated with the FDA-approved drugs minoxidil and finasteride. But other methods – including laser therapy and microneedling – are quickly becoming popular treatment options.

How many transplants will I need in my lifetime?

If you do not take the time to understand the cause of your hair loss and take necessary action to treat it, you may experience further hair loss as a result. Consequently, you would need to receive hair transplants more than once.

However, if you do treat the cause of your hair loss in the first place, then one procedure (which consists of multiple sessions) may be all that you need. If the hairline recession continues, however, then you may need two, three, or even more.

Providing you have done your research and have chosen reliable and trustworthy clinics; a good hair transplant surgeon will be able to discuss your options and minimise your need for multiple sessions.

Are there any side effects of hair implants?

Potential side effects of hair implants include:

  • scarring
  • infection
  • bleeding
  • swelling
  • pain
  • scalp numbness
  • ingrown hairs
  • displeasing results
  • temporary hair loss
