It is also a surgery that involves the movement of hair you already have to stuff an area with little or no hair.
It is technically used to treat baldness or shortage of hair.
In nations all over the world, people go for hair transplant so as to bring back a full or medium hair growth.
I will definitely advise a patient who going bald really bother to go for hair transplant.
The hair transplant is not a new technique in the medical field, it can be tracked back to the 1960s in the U.S.

You might want to ask if the hair transplant really works, the answer is YES.
It was recorded that about 75% or more of the transplant surgery were successful and the hairs fully grow back.
Also, one of the major advantage of hair transplant is the fact that it is permanent, and your look will be natural as ever.
In recent years, men walking Street in bandaged heads are seen in places like Istanbul.
Considering this rampant discoveries, we can conclude that the hair transplant is fast growing in turkey.
Most people around the world travel down to turkey to get this transplant done.

Infact, Turkey is one of the leading countries in the hair transplant industry.
Turkey had attained this spot for their success rate in hair transplant and also the fact that transplant cost is cheaper in turkey compared to other countries in the world.

I can actually say that Hair transplant surgery is usually safe and easy when qualified and experienced surgeons are the ones performing the operation.
Thousands of small incisions are made at the front of the scalp, and then hair follicles from the back are been inserted into those incisions in the front.
Anesthesia are injected into the back of the scalp so you wouldn’t feel anything. In most cases the transplant take about 8 hours at most.
After the insertion, it results in to new hair growth and therefore baldness is checked.
To most people, loosing of hair is usually displeasing as it change looks and also people look older than usual.
In turkey, a hair transplant operation is not just a medical procedure, clinics offer packages for people especially non-turkey citizens.
The reason why baldness occur in the front of the head and at the center of the hair is because they are not usually resistant to DHT, so at the side of the head and at the back are more resistant to DHT, so therefore strong and healthy hair grow in those areas.
There are two types of hair transplant procedure in turkey are majorly:
1. FOLLICULAR UNIT EXTRACTION (FUE)
2. FOLLICULAR UNIT TRANSPLANTATION (FUT)
They work in the same or similar way.
FUE hair transplant
FUE transplant are the gold slandered procedure. Single follicles are removed from the donor site of the scalp with a specialist cutting tool.
These individual follicles are then inserted into tiny cuts made into the recipient site where they bed down.
The skilled surgeon ensures that the recipient cut are angle to reproduce the natural direction of your normal hair.
The follicles then grow strong and healthy hairs in the previously bald patch.
FUT hair transplant
With FUT surgery, instead of taking individual follicles from the donor site on the scalp, your hair transplant surgeon cuts away a strip of them.
This strip is then divided up into single follicles or small group which are inserted as with the FUE procedure into the recipient area.
Hence it is sometimes referred to as STRONG HARVESTING.
There are numerous overseas clinics that offer hair transplant surgery in Turkey.
Finally, a hair transplant can fail, it is very possible for your body to reject the new follicles. This happen in rear cases.
