What is hair transplantation?
Hair transplantation, which is applied to people who have hair loss problems, is a preferred application when hair follicles are not active.

Hair follicles that are resistant to shedding, mainly located in the nape area, are collected in a personalized process. In the hair transplantation process, in which the collected hair follicles are applied to the channels in the parts that are completely shed or thinned out, the objective is to give a permanent hairy appearance.

When do I see results from a hair transplant?
In many patients, the desired appearance becomes evident after six or nine months of surgery. However, sometimes it can take up to 12 months. Hair loss is experienced between the first two and eight weeks after the surgery. This situation, called shock shedding, is a normal result. Afterwards, it is normal to encounter thin hair as before hair transplantation until the third month. Within a year, the patient will have a durable and healthy hair appearance that will make him/her feel good in front of the mirror.
