תהליך השתלת שיער

Hair Transplant Procedure: A to Z Explained!

השתלת שיער עשויה להיות אחת ההחלטות החשובות ביותר שאפשר לקבל. זה עשוי לשנות את חייך בבת אחת וליצור מקור חדש של משיכה וביטחון. עם זאת, מדובר בהליך ארוך, ואתה צריך לקבל מידע על כל השלבים של השתלת שיער כדי לשחזר את המראה הצעיר שלך בהצלחה.

באופן כללי, תהליך השתלת שיער מחולק לשלושה חלקים עיקריים:

הליך טרום הניתוח
השתלות שיער נכשלות אם הן לא נעשות בהליך מקצועי. השתלת שיער תהיה הימור מוחלט ללא האבחנה הנכונה, ייעוץ טרום ניתוחי, בדיקות מצב בריאותי והכנה לניתוח.
יום הניתוח
השתלת שיער איכותית מצריכה צוות כירורגים מיומן במיוחד לפי תוכנית ניתוח מותאמת היטב. חיוני לעבור את הניתוח שלך במרפאה מנוסה, שבה כל משימה עוברת אופטימיזציה כדי להבטיח תהליך השתלת שיער והליך השיקום יביא לתוצאות מוצלחות.
טיפול לאחר ניתוח
שלב הטיפול לאחר תהליך השתלת שיער הוא כה חיוני עד שמרכזי שיקום שיער באיכות גבוהה עיצבו נהלים מפורטים לאחר ניתוח, השירותים הניתנים וההנחיות המפורטות. כל המאמצים הללו נעשים כדי להבטיח שהניתוחים הטובים ביותר ילוו בטיפול מספיק שיוביל להימצאותו של שיער טבעי.
ישנה ספקנות לגבי השלב הקריטי היחיד של השתלת שיער שהוא מוגבל לניתוח עצמו. ככל שהניתוח מורכב ועדין, שלבים אחרים אכן ממלאים תפקיד חשוב בהצלחת ניתוח השתלת שיער. ציר הזמן של השתלת שיער הוא באורך של שנה (פחות או יותר).

There is a misbelief that the only critical stage of a hair transplant is limited to the surgery itself. As complex and delicate as the surgery is, other steps do play an important role in the success of a hair transplant surgery. The hair transplant timeline has a one-year (more or less) length.

Hair Transplant Procedure

Before the Surgery Day

Don’t worry if you are experiencing hair loss and have a bald area or several bold patches. You can contact Dr. Emrah Cinik to get informed about the hair transplant procedure.

To give you relevant information and provide you with individualized care, we need to find out more about you.

We all have individual hair characteristics. Also, not everyone loses hair the same way. Without a thorough consultation, your hair transplant can be a blind shot.

We will need you to send us images of your hair, including the bald area, hair falls, or bald patches. This will help us determine the best course of action to accommodate your specific needs. The information you give us will also help us plan the procedure in advance.

After we provide you with cost estimates, thorough online consultation, and you agree to continue with a hair transplant, we will schedule an appointment for surgery.

The dates we agree on are significant as they will guide our decisions and actions in the steps to follow.

Once you agree with the hair transplant procedure costs, we will initiate further steps to ensure you enjoy your stay here. You don’t have to worry about anything. You just need to book your flights, and that’s it!

Fortunately, Istanbul has daily flights to most major cities globally, so you can quickly fly to Istanbul no matter where you live.

As soon as you arrive at Istanbul airport, we will be there. Our VIP transfer services transfer you from the airport to the hotel, hotel to clinic, and back.

We will provide you with the address of the meeting point. This is where the appointed driver will pick you up and drive you to your hotel.

We will also take care of transportation from the hotel to Dr. Emrah Cinik’s hospital and back. Your only concern is to get well-rested.

Blood Test

It is pretty important to make sure your hair transplant won’t expose you to any kind of risks. A blood test is necessary to ensure you are all safe, and your hair transplant will be a successful one.

Before doing hair transplants, we evaluate these blood factors in men and women:

Total Iron-Binding Capacity
Vitamin D
Vitamin B12
Folic Acid
HDL Cholesterol
LDL Cholesterol
Protein Total
Glucose (Fasting)
Free Testosterone

Heart disorders can be the most significant source of risks before hair transplant surgeries. To guarantee you don’t have any heart disorders, Our medical team will do an EKG test the day before your surgery.

Surgery Day

Your hair transplant day starts with the consultation session by Dr. Emrah Cinik.
Hairline Determination

After analyzing your medical background and your baldness, Dr. Cinik discusses your preference for hairstyles and checks your old photos to determine a natural hairline for you.

Donor Area Check-Up

Doctor Cinik analyzes your donor area. This is of utmost importance as donor capacity is not guaranteed for everyone, and the harvesting plan should be based on the capacity of your donor area.

Treatment Plan

Based on your baldness, determined hairline, and donor capacity, Dr. Cinik sets your hair transplant plan. A professionally designed treatment plan guarantees a successful hair transplant.

At this point, “Before” photos are taken. They are taken at neutral lighting and from all necessary directions. Not only are they used after the surgery as a reference point, but also they are used by the surgery team to make sure they are on the right track.

Based on your request, we will offer one of two options for you:
Full-Shaven Hair Transplant

Your total scalp will be shaved. 1 to 2 millimeters of hair will be kept on your scalp to be used by the surgery team.

Without Entirely Shaving the Scalp

If you want to keep your long hair, it is possible to have just your recipient and donor areas shaved. This option is especially popular with women.

Hair follicles from the donor region are extracted as grafts. Grafts are classified into four kinds based on the number of follicles present (1,2,3 or 4). In some cases, due to insufficient donor follicles on the nape, some hair follicles are harvested from the beard. In more advanced cases, body hair (usually chest) is also harvested.
Graft Preparation
Grafts after extraction need a lot of care and attention. These grafts are irreplaceable, and keeping them healthy and alive is the medical team’s biggest concern. Additionally, all grafts should be clustered and put into four groups of 1,2,3, or 4-follicle groups. Then grafts are kept in a special solution to be ready for the implantation stage.
Channel Opening
Two primary hair transplant techniques are offered at Dr. Cinik Hair Hospital; FUE and DHI. The channel opening stage is unique to FUE as DHI merges this step with implantation.

Channel opening is the stage where the surgeon’s specialty affects the entire hair transplant quality. The depth of channels, their angle, density, placement, and direction need a lot of consideration and experience to be done properly.
For opening channels, very delicate blades are used. Metal blades are used in FUE hair transplants. Recent innovations have enabled using Sapphire blades that are sharper and more precise.

Hair grafts are implanted into the opened channels (in the FUE method) or are directly inserted into the scalp using a Choi pen (DHI technique). The experience and qualifications of the surgeon during the implantation are also very essential. Distributing hair grafts according to the plan, implantation angle, and putting minimal pressure on grafts need years of training and experience.


After finishing the surgery steps, our medical team prepares you to get some rest. Disinfecting the donor area(s) and bandaging it, checking your blood pressure, and other physical factors would be the next steps. Then we take some photos from your transplanted area.

Our VIP transfer takes you to the hotel to take some rest in its luxurious atmosphere. You will need to use the neck pillow we give you to sleep in the right position.

To make sure a high-quality surgery will result in a successful hair transplant, the first wash is done at our clinic. The bandages are taken, and your scalp is washed using special Dr. Cinik shampoo. There should be no blood spots on the recipient area left as it can kill the graft. A special gel is also applied to the donor area to ease the itchiness.

After your first wash is done, our team educates you about the aftercare and the recovery procedure. Giving you a special aftercare package, you will be educated about all the necessary tasks you will need to consider during the recovery and growth process.

Scabs should be gone, and the transplanted area should be clean. You need to send images from your hair to our team to be able to follow up on your healing process.

At this point, you can expect the shedding process. It is normal and is a part of the healing process. It can continue until the third month. Do not forget to send your updates to our post-op team.

Now you can expect the permanent hair to start growing. You need to be patient and give some time to your hair to grow and get strong.

At this point, you can expect to see 60 to 70 percent of the final result.

Hair strands grow stronger and thicker. Hair growth in the transplanted area continues further.

Congratulations! You made it! You can expect the final results now. For some patients, it takes 15 months to get the final results.

Hair Transplant Aftercare Education

After the surgery, our team will provide you with all necessary information regarding the aftercare procedure. It is important that you know what should be taken care of and considered after having a hair transplant.

We provide all patients with detailed information besides educational videos about what they will need to do or avoid doing after their hair transplant. Without cautious aftercare, all the effort made in the previous steps can be destroyed, so it is important to give all the patients what they need.

Dr. Cinik Post-Op Support Team: You Are Not Alone

Here at Dr. Cinik Hair Hospital, a team of professionals speaking different languages will follow your healing process and are available for any questions and problems you face. It is important to be supported during the healing period.

It is possible to run into some unexpected problems during the recovery time. It might be a real danger, which can jeopardize the hair and put your health in danger, or not a serious threat but a stressful moment. In both situations, you will need a professional to support you and give you the correct instructions.

Aftercare Packages

Transplanted hair needs careful attention to turn into natural-looking hair. Using high-quality organic materials and products is a must. To that end, we provide our patients with high-end aftercare products and supplements as 3, 6, or 12-month packages.

What Are the Risks of a Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant, like any other medical procedure, might have certain side effects and problems. The majority of these problems are temporary and are a normal part of the healing process. Because it is a surgical procedure, some scalp damage is unavoidable. The following are some of the most prevalent side effects of a hair transplant:

-Swelling or bruising
-Pain or itching
-Loss of sensation around the treated areas
-Loss of transplanted hair (shock loss)
-Scalp laxity
-Unnaturally-looking hair
-Hair curl

All of these potential difficulties are just temporary, so don't be panicked if you encounter them. Even if you have an infection, your doctor will treat it immediately and make sure your hair grows properly again.

When the surgery is performed by a doctor who lacks experience, complications are more likely to occur. As a result, it is important to choose a skilled and experienced surgeon to transplant your hair.
