Facial hair transplant is a procedure generally done on men who suffer from spotty or patchy loss of hair from goatee, other parts of the beard, sideburns or mustache. The absence of hair could be hereditary or due to surgical scars, burns or other types of accidents.More
Hair transplantation is considered a non invasive surgery. The local anesthetic used has prolonged analgesic action, so the patient will not feel any kind of pain. The operated area remains silent for several hours after surgery. In the days following the intervention you may experience a slight pain in the receiving and donating areas, which will disappear within a few days.
The duration of the intervention depends on the number of bulbs that will be transplanted. It usually takes 6 to 8 hours.
Hair transplantation can be men and women, from 18/20 years old. Since it is a little invasive, almost everyone can undergo hair transplantation, except in patients with serious health problems, such as immunosuppression.
Since it is a non-invasive operation performed in local anesthesia, the risks of such intervention are low. The only drawbacks that our patients experience are mostly in the post operative: itching, headaches and slight swelling, but they disappear within a few days.
No. One of the biggest concerns about who intends to undergo hair transplantation is this. The advantage of FUE is just that. The doctor in fact ensures that close to the follicular unit extracted there are others, ensuring the absence of empty spaces in the donor area.
Once transplanted, the transplanted hair will fall as the bulb stays inside the groove and begins to regenerate the hair. Hair will begin to grow again after about 3 months and will continue to grow in the following months. Around the seventh month, patients will notice that their hair is naturally natural.
Absolutely not. After 2/3 weeks, during which croutons can be formed in areas affected by transplantation, there will be no sign.
After the intervention you will need to follow the instructions of the medical staff to maximize the result of the intervention. Interpreters in the clinic will provide you with all the necessary instructions for products to be used and activities to be avoided in the weeks following the transplant (such as sports and physical exertion).
Once arriving at the airport the patient will be picked up by a driver and taken to the hotel (www.modushotelistanbul.com). The hotel is near the clinic, so you will be taken at the time agreed in the morning (usually around 7.30 / 8.00) and taken to the clinic. Here you will be taken from the blood for further analysis and there will be an interview with our doctors during which the patient will be able to indicate what his / her expectation of the outcome of the surgery is and the doctor will check the hair condition of the hair patient. After that, the operation will begin, during which you can take a break and eat. Once the operation is over, the patient can leave the clinic and return the next day to change the band. During the entire trial you will be assisted by Italian interpreters in the clinic, who will be at your side from the moment you decide to take the intervention at Estepera, in the following months, during which doctors will carry out checks (via sending photo). It is advisable to stay in Istanbul for 2 or 3 nights.
Sure. Just send an email to [email protected] with name and phone number. You will then be contacted by one of our interpreters, via Whatsapp (or other than you have indicated), and you will be asked to submit your photos so that we can get a preliminary consultation with our doctors.
Hair is more than just a headdress. It means protection, warmth, and beauty. Which makes losing it all the more problematic. Estepera, one of the most renowned clinics in Turkey, is well aware of the ideational value of hair. With state-of-the-art medical standards, surgical expertise, the best in hygiene and a sophisticated all-round service, the experienced specialists restore for their patients what they so painfully miss: a youthful, fresh look.
Hair loss is a complex occurrence that is not limited to a single cause. Researchers say it is a multifactorial occurrence: an interaction of several external and internal factors. The biggest of which are:
Estepera has dedicated itself to field of natural aesthetics since 2003 and has gathered and built a highly-skilled and brilliant team of doctors and hair transplant experts. Estepera is established as one of the most prestigious hair restoration clinics on national and international levels. The secret of its success is its focus. While other clinics offer a random assortment of aesthetic procedures, Estepera is devoted entirely to hair transplantation to being true experts in hair transplantation in Turkey.
Good reputation precedes the clinic. More than 26,000 patients worldwide have decided to have their hair transplants performed by Estepera experts. The response is consistently positive; satisfied customers praise the natural aesthetics, the outstanding medical expertise of the team, and the encouraging all-inclusive package.
Forty percent of men and twenty percent of women suffer from hair loss. Not everyone, however, takes the path of hair transplantation. Ironically, price leaves the dream of full hair often unfulfilled, especially in Germany. Transplanting one graft (follicular unit) costs an average of 3.29 euros in Germany. For a typical procedure involving about 800 grafts, a German doctor will charge up to 2,500 euros.
In Turkey, on the other hand, hair transplant costs are quite different. On average, transplanting a graft in Turkey costs 1.89 euros. Transplanting 800 grafts therefore costs only 1,500 euros – almost half the cost of German clinics. That being said, patients do not experience any quality differences. If they decide to have their hair transplant performed in Turkey, they can expect a highly-favored, complete package: medical expertise at a convenient price.
The exact treatment costs are of course dependent on each patient. The degree of hereditary hair loss and the person’s desired result determine the price range. On request, Estepera will send you an individually tailored estimate of the cost.
The surgical team of Estepera Hair Clinic utilizes the most advanced methods of hair transplantation. The modern FUE technique (Follicular Unit Extraction) is the best proof of its technical sophistication. Unlike the older FUT method where an entire strip of skin was removed from the donor area leaving an undesirable scar, FUE method involves extracting hair grafts individually using micro instruments. And that is the trump card of the FUE method. Thanks to their narrow cuts, the risk of injury remains considerably low, and scarring, which can hinder a naturally aesthetic result, is no longer a concern.
Estepera Clinic in Istanbul also offers comprehensive and compelling packages including:
The organization of the patient’s entire stay and the entailed services is done by Estepera Clinic. The patient can relax and concentrate on taking good care of his/her newly restored hair. It is no coincidence that many patients describe hair transplantation in Turkey as a pleasant experience. It is not perceived as an uncertain adventure, but rather a quality medical treatment with a high recreational value.
After the procedure at the clinic, the team at Estepera will not leave you alone. The multilingual Customer Advisors (who speak English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Turkish, and Russian) are always a trusted partner for you in your journey in esthetics and health. Up to a year after the transplant, you can count on their availability to assist you with your follow-ups, inquiries, and concerns.
The heart of a successful treatment is the result afterwards. If the transplanted hair roots are not implanted at a natural angle, the natural look will be compromised. The experienced Estepera surgeons prove their aptitudes when extracting the grafts, making the channels, and transplanting the grafts: for graft extraction, extra-fine FUE hollow needles (or punches) are used to speed up recovery; next, channels (tiny incisions) are made using fine slits at carefully studied angles; and later, those are inserted one at a time into their channels.In addition to the natural growth direction, FUE transplants are known for the outstanding density the can obtain. Where older transplantation techniques such as FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) fall short due to their lack of finesse, the innovative FUE method thrives.
Hair loss can happen in many ways. Its physical manifestation is not only on the top of the head, but also in the beard or the eyebrows. To cope with all forms of hair loss, Estepera clinic uses a wide range of services:
