Below, our hair transplant surgeons in Turkey explain the number of hair transplantation operations that are required in order to obtain good results.
How to determine the number of hair transplants in Turkey
During the initial consult, our surgeons will find out the number of hair transplants a person can have based on the examination of the donor area. It should be noted that the average number of hair follicles which can be harvested during one hair transplant procedure is 2,000. This is usually the case of male patients who are also the best candidates for hair restoration in Turkey. In women, this number will usually be lower.
What can influence the number of hair transplants of a person?
- in male patients, the number of hair transplant procedures are lower because hair follicles can be harvested from other body parts than the head;
- in female patients this number will be higher in exceptional cases, which is why hair transplants in women require fewer hair follicles;
- there is no limit to the maximum number of hair transplants, however, these can be performed at a distance of a few years in some cases;
- when using the FUE method, a patient will require an average number of 6 or 7 hair transplant procedures.
The number of hair transplants is influenced by many factors and it should be noted that there is no exact number which can be generally advanced for all patients. As each case is treated individually, we invite you to come to our hair transplant clinic in Turkey and discuss your options with our surgeons, so please feel free to contact us anytime.
