Author: Dr. Emrah Cinik

Hair replacement is a very common treatment these days. Helping people to regain their self-confidence by a simple yet effective procedure. Lose of hair happens to more than 50 percent of men and 25 percent women population. This cleaver interview with Dr. Cinik will give you an idea what to expect from this procedure.

Which methods are used for hair transplantation? 

There are several techniques and FUE and DHI hair transplantations is the most commonly used one among them. Hair follicles are individually removed in their anatomic integrity from behind the posterior scalp between the ears by microsurgical technique and they are individually reinserted to the recipient site.

Does hair transplantation give permanent results? 

Yes, Hair transplantation operation gives permanent results. The main reason behind hair loss is the impact of testosterone and the hair follicles transplanted in the operation are genetically resistant to this effect.
Permanent hair transplantation 
The newly transplanted hair survives on the transplantation site for a life time. If the transplanted hair would later be affected by testosterone and lost, it would not make sense to get hair transplantation.

Should I wait for a total hair loss before having a hair transplantation? 

No, you shouldn’t. The major warning sign is the early stage when thinning becomes visible but the patient and those people around the patient are not used to that appearance yet. You should not particularly wait for a total hair loss so that neither the person nor their social environment get used to that appearance.
Also, a donor site consist of an adequate number of hair is required for hair transplantation. It is possible to have a smooth transition before the person gets to be perceived as having no hair.

Can hair transplantation operation be repeated?

If necessary, hair transplantation can be repeated 3-4 times depending on the density, quality and the number of the hair follicles on the donor site.
A second hair transplantation can be planned in cases of continuing rapid hair loss, with patients who desire higher density of hair, to provide a hairy scalp on those sites where no prior transplantation has been done, and for the purpose of correcting the outcome with those patients who have had an unsuccessful hair.
