Founded in 2014, Hair World Turkey is a hair transplant and medical aesthetics clinic based in Istanbul. We are fully approved by the Ministry of Health to carry out a range of hair transplant and restoration techniques.
The most natural and permanent way of gaining hair for the people who experience permanent hair loss is hair transplantation. The first application period, which started to be applied in Japan in the 1930s for the first time, was during the 1950s in the West. Hair transplantation is an effective and permanent solution for individuals experiencing ‘male pattern baldness’, a condition also known as androgenetic alopecia. Hair transplantation operation is the transfer of the hair follicles collected from the region where the hair is dense, to the region where the hair loss occurs.
Thanks to many methods applied today, the problem of hair loss, which causes aesthetic problems and loss of self-confidence, is easily solved. DHI, that is, direct hair transplantation method, is accepted as the newest and most effective method in hair transplantation. Although the DHI technique is similar to the FUE hair transplant method, it differs by not opening the incision. Hair transplantation, which is performed in three stages as graft collection, grooving and graft transplantation in other hair transplantation methods, is carried out in two basic stages as graft collection and graft transplantation using the DHI method. In the FUE hair transplantation method, the channels in the scalp are cut manually before implanting the hair follicles. During DHI, a special pen (Choi Pen) that can do both at the same time is used.Hair transplantation, which is recommended to be done with an experienced surgeon, must be performed by specialist physicians in a fully equipped hospital. This is performed with minimal surgical intervention rather than traditional surgery. However, it is also performed for those who experience hair loss due to various diseases and other reasons. Hair loss can happen for any number of reasons, including genetic, medical, psychological and traumatic ones. Both men and women can be affected by pattern baldness. Our facial hair like beard, eyebrows and eyelashes are also at risk. The hair loss problem may hurt the self-image of a person and lead to psychological problems. While in some cases it is only temporary, in most cases hair loss is permanent. It is also irreversible by traditional methods that use medicine. Thankfully there is a solution for baldness Hair Transplantation is a reliable treatment method that can be applied in order to remove the effects of hair loss problem permanently with a success rate over 95%. Various techniques have been utilized in Turkey for over 40 years. The latest and currently the most efficient technique, a process known as follicular unit extraction (FUE) was developed in the 1990s. The follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique is both extremely refined and widely adapted in Turkey.
DHI hair transplant is also known as direct hair implantation. It works in a similar way to follicular unit extraction, in that individual hairs from a donor area on the body are extracted. In a DHI, the hairs are then inserted into a pen-shaped tools and implanted, one by one, into the balding area. The idea is that by adding hairs individually, the surgeon has greater control over the finished aesthetics and shape of the re-grafted area. DHI can successfully reverse the effects of androgenic alopecia or thinning hair. The implanted hairs fall out after a few weeks, but the process is designed to stimulate new ones to grow in their place. Common areas for a DHI include the top, hairline and crown of the head.
How is DHI Hair Transplant Applied?
DHI is an improved version of FUE and a similar procedure is followed. Your surgeon removes hair follicles, usually from the back of your scalp, and places them in balding areas. These hair follicles eventually grow new hair. In this process, the DHI technique is applied as follows; First, the scalp is shaved and local anesthesia is applied. Then, your surgeon takes your hair follicles from the back of your head with the Choi Pen, a very fine-tipped pen. Hair follicles are loaded into the Choi Pen at this stage and implanted in the balding part. Choi Pen gives the surgeon full control over depth, angle and direction, resulting in natural results. Antibiotic cream and bandage are applied immediately after hair transplantation. DHI is a method that must be performed by surgeons who are experts in the field due to the sensitivity and attention it requires. Side effects and complications from DHI operation are usually minor and go away easily within a few weeks.
How Much Does DHI Hair Transplant Cost in Turkey?
DHI hair transplant costs depend entirely on each patient’s circumstances – the extent of their hair loss, size of area(s) to be treated and tine scales in which the surgery is required. The price includes the surgery itself, along with associated medical support during the procedure. You should also factor in accommodation, travel (taxis, flights etc.), after-care therapies and medications and loss of earnings if you need to take time off work. At Hair World Turkey, we offer several different financing arrangements to give our valued patients access to a range of payment options. If you would like to have a better idea of whereabouts the costs will reach, check out an online DHI calculator.
How does DHI Hair Transplant Work?
DHI hair transplants take place over various stages. The process starts with a comprehensive initial consultation. This is when the surgeon will take a full medical history and explain the procedures available. You can ask any questions you may have and discuss any concerns. When the scheduled surgery day arrives, you will be looked after by an experienced, qualified medical team all the while you are undergoing the procedure. Afterwards, you will be given advice about after-care routines and invited back for follow-up checks. The implanted follicles will fall out after a few weeks. New hair growth is stimulated by the procedure and these will start to appear shortly afterwards, with results growing more and more visible over the next twelve months or so.
How is an DHI Hair Transplant Operation Performed?
DHI hair transplant is considered less invasive that follicular unit transplantation. This is because the latter involves taking a whole strip of skin from the donor area; normally the nape of the neck or sides of the head. DHI extracts individual hairs, which leads to less scarring and a more comfortable procedure, done under local anaesthetic. The hairs are individually implanted into the balding area using a specialist pen-shaped tool. Results can be carefully controlled to ensure the desired aesthetic can be achieved using only the healthiest donor hair follicles. After the procedure is complete, the surgeon will apply anti-biotic cream and a bandage to aid healing and keep the area as sterile as possible. The procedure normally takes around eight hours, although this can vary from patient to patient.

Recovery After DHI Hair Transplant
There is no set recovery time after a DHI hair transplant, although most people find that any post-surgery pain or discomfort disappears after seven days. How well and how quickly you recover depends wholly on how closely you adhere to the recommended after-care routine. Your DHI surgeon will give you lots of tips and advice on how to look after yourself in the weeks and months after the procedure. This will include guidance over washing your hair and scalp, ways to protect the newly growing hair and things to avoid, such as going out into direct sunlight or applying chemicals to the hair too soon. If you are concerned about any lingering or worsening pain, or any other symptoms that trouble you, speak to your surgical team right away for advice.
DHI Hair Transplant Care
Opting to undergo an DHI hair transplant care is a serious decision and you can expect your medical team to provide you with the best possible care. Before the procedure, you will attend an initial consultation and the process will be explained in full. On the day of your surgery, you will be carefully monitored and given anti-biotic cream and bandages to aid healing and help prevent infection. Afterwards, you must attend all scheduled follow-up appointments and take it easy, protecting your re-grafted hair to ensure the best possible results. At each stage in your recovery, we will help you understand what to look for and do to ensure a successful outcome.
DHI Hair Transplant After Care
After The First Month
The first days and weeks after having a DHI must be spent calmly, without any strenuous activities or tasks that could knock or damage the scalp. Stay out of direct sunlight and follow any after-care instructions given to you by the surgical team. After a couple of weeks, the grafted hair follicles will fall out. This is an expected part of the process and paves the way for new, stronger hair to grow back in its place about five or six weeks afterwards. Look out for any redness or swelling in the treated areas and seek emergency advice if this becomes pronounced. Wash your scalp after two days by rising it gently with warm water.
After Three Months
When you have passed the three-month mark you can use a mild shampoo to wash your scalp and the new hairs that will have just started to appear. Pat the hair dry using a paper towel, rather than rubbing it with anything harsher. Wash hair in the direction it is growing and avoid scratching the area with your fingernails. By six months, the new hair will be thicker and stronger, becoming more and more established as time goes on. Keep up with any appointments that have been scheduled and take care to protect your scalp and head wherever possible against injury.
After One Year
Many people report pleasing successes with DHI surgery, boasting a much fuller head of hair after a year. While some see the full effects at this stage, others can continue to note improvements up to 18 months post-surgery. Time scales can depend on many factors, including how serious the problem was to begin with, the size of the areas treated and how well the patient has cared for their scalp afterwards. Maintain good hygiene to prevent build-up of grease and dirt – follow a regular hair washing routine and ask your hairdresser for recommendations about protective hair products going forward.
How to Wash Hair After DHI Hair Transplant
Your new, thicker hair should give you cause for a real boost in self-confidence. As such, you should be washing it regularly and correctly to prolong its looks and prevent damage. This also helps to encourage the follicles to continue to produce strong, healthy hair. Do not wash your hair at all for the first two days following your DHI. After that, rinse it gently with warm water and pat it dry. After a few weeks, you can add a mild shampoo that does not contain parabens. Wash in the direction that your hair is growing and if you choose to massage your scalp, do so gently and slowly.
Advantages of DHI Hair Transplant
For people living with hair loss, thinning or balding, it can be distressing and really affect self-confidence. Being able to correct this problem is one of the main DHI pros. Others include a relatively pain-free procedure that leaves minimal scarring. Recovery times are quicker than other hair transplant techniques and results can start to show after just a few weeks. As each hair is implanted individually, results look natural and the surgeon has a high level of control over the finished aesthetics and shape of the re-grafted hair. The procedure is becoming more and more commonplace, and most clinics offer flexible payment options for easier affordability.
Who is a Good Candidate for DHI Hair Transplant?
Good DHI hair transplant candidates are generally people who have experienced hair loss, thinning or baldness on the top, crown or hairlines on their head, but still has enough donor hair elsewhere for the surgery. They should be otherwise healthy and have the mental capacity and motivation to follow the recommended pre- and post-surgery care procedures to aid recovery. The process works well for people seeking both DHI long hair solutions and shorter hairstyle options. Conditions that can be significantly addressed include alopecia areata and male pattern baldness. Candidates should also be over 25 years old and not suffering from extreme stress or trauma-related conditions, such as PTSD.
Who is Not a Good Candidate for DHI Hair Transplant?
For anyone considering DHI hair transplant surgery, a complete medical history is essential. This is because some people are not suited to the procedure for various reasons. For example, people under the age of 25 will not be suitable, due to the fact that their adult hair growth patterns may not yet be established. If hair loss follows a traumatic or stressful event or the person is suffering from extreme anxiety. DHI may not be a workable solution. There must be enough hair left on the head or nape of the neck for the surgeon to extract the quantity needed for the DHI. Some medical conditions also exclude eligibility for the surgery Ask your doctor or medical specialist if you are unsure if any of the above applies to you.

The state-of-the-art hair transplant techniques that have been developed over the years have assisted to enhance the results to amazing natural looking levels. While it still depends on the skill and experience of the hair transplant surgeon somewhat, with some of the latest technologies, the results of hair transplant operation can look so natural that it may appear as though you never had any missing hair at all. Of course since the process has become much more meticulous and precise, this means that the end result is even more realistic when performed by a skilled surgeon. That being said, hair transplant will also change your look completely, most likely making sure you reacquire the look of your youth once again in a successful operation. During older hair transplant techniques large strips of skin with healthy hair follicles called grafts were removed from the nape or sides of the head and then were transplanted to the areas of baldness or where hair was thinning. Because these strips may have had a high amount of individual hairs looking in different directions attached to them, the results could look less than natural. But with modern techniques such as FUE, hair grafts are removed in smaller sections, sometimes even holding even a single follicle, and they are grafted to achieve a look as natural as possible.
In most cases, patients will see results of their hair transplant procedure between six and nine months after surgery. In some rare cases, it may take 12 months, because of the natural cycle of a hair follicle's life. It’s very important to note that between two and eight weeks after the procedure, all of the transplanted hair will fall out. This is normal and expected. In addition, by the third month after the procedure, the hair may look even thinner than before you had the transplant. Again, this is normal and expected. During this period, hair follicles are in the hibernation and rooting phases, where they connect with the infrastructure of your body to once again collect necessary nutrients and materials to grow healthy hair. During this phase, you may assist your hair by using medicine. Your doctor may recommend medicine that treats hair loss to get the best results from a hair transplant, as it will help to counter the natural hair loss and thinning that can continue in the area among the hair that already existed there.
FUE hair transplant procedure is painless when local anesthesia is used. FUE hair transplant procedure is a medical operation, even though it is less invasive and limited in scope than other operations. As such, it does cause some discomfort, usually defined by most patients as a mosquito bite, which can be annoying in large numbers. To alleviate this and to have the experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible, local anesthesia is provided to the patient via normal or needle free injector. The intravenous sedation to provide the local anesthesia is administered by an anaesthetist, depending on the age, weight and health conditions of the patient. This will not put the patient fully unconscious, but only relaxed and at ease. The high quality surgical steel grade tools that will be used during the procedure will also cause little, if any discomfort. In addition, it may be possible to use more specialized blades, and have the special wound dressings done right after the operation, then replaced the day after by our health-care professionals will affect the overall comfort of the patient.
The cost of hair transplantation in Turkey depends on variables such as the number of grafts you need and the type of technique and technology used. The cost of a hair transplant in Turkey can range from $3,500 to $7,500, including accommodation and transportation costs, depending on the type of surgery required, the clinic chosen, and the surgeon assigned. In other parts of the world such as Dubai, Canada, London, the cost for the FUE hair transplant method can be as high as $12,000 to $30,000. Depending on your needs and wishes, your surgeon will examine your scalp and decide how many sessions you need. Approximately 3000,4500 grafts are transplanted in 1 session.
This will depend on the technique to be used. In FUT technique, where entire hair follicles and the surrounding cells are completely removed from beneath the scalp surface in stripes, hair regrowth in these strips at the donor site will not at all be possible. It is possible for hair regrowth to take place only in areas at the donor site where the hair follicles were not fully, but selectively removed. Hair is expected to grow back from either side of the incision made, and under some cases, from inside the incision only after the scar has fully healed. This is one of the primary reasons why expert doctors try to keep the donor scar as thin as possible. In most cases the hair transplant doctor will harvest follicles from an area in the scalp with the densest concentration of hair, so that this loss will be barely noticeable. Usually the remaining hair surrounding the donor area is more than enough to conceal the donor spots. Modern techniques such as FUE will not remove skin and hair in strips, but in smaller, even singular follicular batches. This will both cause less scarring and keep the donor areas almost invisible and unnoticeable.
