Unfortunately, our everyday life is not like it used to be. That you have concerns about transplantation in Turkey is understandable. Since COVID-19 emerged in Turkey, the Turkish government has implemented strict measures to prevent the spread of the virus. We as the Bank Of Hair team also disinfect all the treatment rooms and operating rooms every 10 hours by trained cleaning staff. Detailed care is taken to ensure that everything is hygienic and that our patients feel comfortable. You can contact us at any time regarding any issue.

Hair Transplant

In order for us to determine how useful hair transplantation is for you, it is enough to make an appointment with us, so that our experts can also analyze in detail how advanced your hair loss is and whether it makes sense to have a hair transplant. The cause will also be analyzed and in this regard you will be offered the treatment options. Among other things, we also offer hair pigmentation and PRP treatments.

Our goal as Team Bank Of Hair is to create the perfect end result, so that our patients are happy for a lifetime. If the right measures are followed, there is nothing wrong with perfect new hair.

It depends on how large the bald spots are and how many grafts can be harvested and transplanted. Generally, you will have the perfect final result after hair transplantation. Of course, if the affected areas are large, a second transplant may be needed to get the perfect final result and conjure up natural hair.

The grafts are transplanted 1-2 millimeters deep into the skin to develop in it. The most modern techniques such as the DHI method are used to achieve perfect final results.

Thanks to the Comfort-In system, it can be said that the transplantation is quite painless. No needles are used in this process. You will receive a local anesthetic during the procedure.

Since local anesthesia is used during the procedure and not general anesthesia, there are hardly any risks during the transplantation. If the rules are followed by the doctor, there are hardly any risks even after hair transplantation. Infection or failure of the transplanted grafts may occur, but this will only happen if you are not treated by experts or if you do not follow the rules of our expert team.

It depends on the grafts how long the transplantation takes. As a rule, the procedure is expected to take six to eight hours.

During the free consultation, you will be informed about the complete procedure by our experts. First, your hair will be looked at and analyzed in detail by our experts. In this regard, it will then be determined how many grafts will be taken and which method is suitable for your scalp.

Yes, beard hair can also be transplanted to the scalp, as the hair roots adapt. If grafts cannot be harvested from the donor area, i.e. the back of the head, it is possible to harvest beard hair. This is determined by our experts during the consultation interview.

Yes, artificial hair can also be transplanted, but only to smaller bald spots, as the body rejects artificial hair more easily than it does its own hair. Whether this is possible for you, you can make an appointment from one of the seven contact points in Germany. Our experts will analyze this and enlighten you in this regard as well.

Yes, it is possible to transplant hair onto a bald head. If there is no hair at the back of the head, it is also possible to take grafts from the breast or beard. It is also possible to simulate baldness with hair pigmentation.

Before the hair transplant

Stay in Turkey

The majority of patients combine their stay in the metropolis of Istanbul with a short vacation. We advise that if you want to combine the stay with a short vacation, to do it before the hair transplantation, because it is important to rest after the procedure. The stay in Istanbul for hair transplantation lasts at least 3 days. Day 1 the arrival whereby on the third day can be departed.
