Frequently Asked Questions About Hair Transplantation

Can I get a hair transplant?

Hair replacement candidates must have healthy, dense hair growth at the back and sides of the head to serve as donor areas. Donor areas are the places on the head from which grafts are taken. Other factors, such as hair colour, texture and waviness or curliness may also affect the cosmetic result.

Contact PENFUE to get a personal assessment.

Before you decide to undergo surgery, think carefully about your expectations and keep in mind that result cannot always fit your expectations of ideal hair. Remember, there are limits to what can be accomplished. An individual with very little hair might not be advised to undergo hair replacement surgery.

How long does a hair restoration procedure take?

Most hair restoration procedures at our clinic in Kusadasi take 1 day. Time-wise, a typical transplant can take 6-9 hours. In some cases, we offer 2-day procedures to maximise the number of transplanted grafts.

How many days do I need to spend in Turkey?

You will need to stay with us for 2-3 nights. You will need arrive in Kusadasi 1 day before your scheduled hair transplant and you can leave already a day after your procedure. Your hair restoration offer from PENFUE will contain more information about the required length of your stay with us.

Do I need to shave before my hair transplant?

By using the implanter pen technique, Dr. M.Tunc Tuncer can safely implant grafts between existing hair. Shaving can in some cases improve the rate of implantation, so more grafts can be implanted during the transplant. In any case, we will need to shave the back of your head (your donor area) to extract the grafts.

All shaving and trimming is done at the clinic, so you do not need to do anything before you arrive. Do not shave your scalp or beard before your arrival.

Is hair transplantation painful?

We use innovative methods of administering local anaesthesia before the procedure, so patients experience no pain and absolutely minimal discomfort during the entire process.

When will I see results of my hair transplantation procedure?

Full results can take up to 9-12 months to show. You will be seeing initial regrowth soon after the transplant, however some of the hair growing out of the transplanted grafts can fall. This is normal. Transplanted grafts will stay with you and produce healthy hair soon.

How long will the results of hair replacement stay with me?

Hair transplantation produces lifelong results. Transplanted grafts will not be affected by hair loss after your procedure.
