What Percentage of Hair Grafts Survive?
The global average is around 70%. However, in experienced centres these rates are around 90-95%. An experienced hair transplant surgeon and a good team are key to success.
Hair transplant results are very good. It is possible to keep about 90-95% of the transplanted hair. But it should be done by the right people in the right centre. Only doctors are allowed to perform hair transplants in Turkey.
If it is not done correctly, it may not come out at all. Soaking the grafts in the wrong fluid can cause this. Cooling the grafts too much or leaving them in a very hot environment are other reasons. So physical conditions and experience are very important. Each step of hair transplantation is important. It is necessary to be meticulous. Both the team and the environment must be adequate. But a loss of 10-15% is an acceptable loss.
The success rate is over 90% under ideal conditions. We can list the ideal conditions as follows: Doltor should be used, the team should be experienced, appropriate materials should be used, it should be in a health facility.
The success rate varies between 70-95% depending on the clinic. There are many factors that influence the success rate. But the most important is the experience of the team. This is why we recommend hair transplant centres run by an experienced doctor.
Within three months after the hair transplant, all the hair will fall out. Hair starts to grow from these roots in the 3rd month. About half of it grows in the sixth month. It is complete by the ninth and twelfth months. However, the growth process in the crown area may take a little longer.
In fact, if it is done correctly and with the right technique, this is extremely unlikely. It is also important that the doctor and his team are experienced. There is a possibility that a hair transplant performed under inappropriate conditions to be a little cheaper may fail.
Especially in the front of the head, almost all the transplanted hair is retained. This rate is slightly lower in the crown area. However, the more experienced the doctor and his team, the higher the success rate.
FUE is the most successful method of hair transplantation. Most of the grafts adhere to the transplanted area. We also use sapphire FUE, which is the most successful method. It has many advantages. The success rate is up to 95%. The experience of the team is very important.
It may have been carried out without following the rules or by inexperienced teams. It may have been done by people who are not doctors or even non-medical people. It may be due to pre-existing skin problems that were not taken into account. The hair in the area where necrosis develops may not hold. Rarely, an infection may develop and the hair in this area may not hold. For all these reasons, do not have a hair transplant except in a medical facility where the procedure is performed by doctors.
Actually, it is not correct to set a limit. However, very good planning is essential for the first hair transplant to be successful. How many grafts have been taken in previous hair transplants? What is the length of the donor area on the back of the head? Depending on the answers to these questions, the 2nd or 3rd hair transplant can be planned. Beyond that it is quite difficult.
It is usually difficult for the transplanted hair to fall out. However, excessive androgen in young people can also cause the transplanted hair to fall out. Additional measures are needed to prevent permanent hair loss. We can say that the hair will not fall out for a very long time.
If the transplant can be performed frequently enough, we achieve very successful results. The donor area, i.e. the back of the head, should be sufficient for this.
In fact, the first 48 hours are very important. The epithelium closes in around the grafts. The grafts quickly become attached to their new home. However, you still need to be careful during the first 10 days. After day 10, you can return to your normal life.
The most important thing is to have a good team. If it is an experienced team, you can guarantee success right from the start. The doctor must be the one who leads the team and performs the procedure. Many details are necessary for the success of hair transplantation. It is not possible for you to notice them. Of course, the place of hair transplantation should be a health institution.
In Turkey, many good teams perform successful hair transplants. But unfortunately, some technicians who are not doctors perform hair transplants in violation of the law. You should be very careful. Make sure you have your hair transplant done in a facility that is licensed and approved by the Ministry of Health. Also check whether the people doing it are doctors or not.
Yes, it is possible to increase the success of your hair transplant with some medications and habits. Dr Yakup Şensoy will give you information about some medications you should use after hair transplantation. He will also recommend a suitable shampoo. There are also important things you need to do. For example, you should not smoke. Exercise is important for your overall health and for your hair. We recommend that you do not take too many supplements for a generally healthy diet. You should also stop wearing hats.
Yes, hair transplantation in Turkey is very successful. But you should choose the right clinic. There are very experienced doctors and clinics run by them in Turkey. Unfortunately, there are also illegal centres run by people who are not doctors. Be careful. If you go to the right clinic, the success rate is very high. If there is a doctor in the clinic, will the doctor do the hair transplant? Make sure.
The best hair transplant clinics are those where doctors perform hair transplants. Also, only doctors are legally allowed to perform hair transplants in Turkey. Therefore, do not go to a clinic where the doctor does not work. Unfortunately, you can get very negative results. Also, the hair transplant should be done by a doctor. You must be sure of this. Therefore, a clinic where technicians perform hair transplants is not a good clinic.
Turkey is a reliable country. It is not possible to compare it with other Middle Eastern countries. But you should be careful about the clinic you choose for hair transplantation. Unfortunately, some people do hair transplants without permission. This is not legal. Legally, only doctors have the right to transplant hair. Although the state deals with these illegal people, Istanbul is a very big city. It is difficult to control. What you have to do is to contact a doctor.
If the doctor does the hair transplant, the price of a 4000 graft hair transplant is between 2000-5000 euros. Only centres where doctors perform hair transplants are legal. It would be more profitable for you not to trust other centres.

Question: The hair follicles on my nape area are a little weak. For this reason, I wonder how much the number of grafts is. Normally, What Percentage of Hair Grafts Survive?
Clinicante (Specialist Dr. Yakup Şensoy MD): Hair transplants have a high hair retention rate of 90 to 100%. But if it is done with sapphire, then the success rate is a lot higher. Firstly, the person who wants to have a hair transplant must be suitable for a hair transplant. It also needs to take place in an appropriate setting, such as a hospital or medical facility. Thirdly, the grafts must not be damaged during the extraction process. The grafts need to be transplanted without waiting for too long a time.
Finally, the canal must be canalised using the correct technique. The grafts should be transplanted quickly without causing damage. If all this is done, the success rate of hair transplantation is very high. If hair transplantation is done correctly, most of the hair will fall out. For this reason, you should prefer hair transplant centres where doctors work with professional teams.
Generally successful. However, the causes of hair loss in women are not the same as in men. The most common causes of hair loss in women are thyroid disorders and systemic diseases such as iron deficiency. If there is no cause, hair transplantation can be successful in women.
Most of the roots in the scalp of the head are in the anagen phase. This percentage is over 90%. The anagen phase is the growth phase of the hair. That is why the hair we transplant falls out in the first 3 months.
Thanks to the surgical techniques developed in recent years, we are achieving very successful results. In particular, micrograft and minigraft techniques have made our work much easier. The micropunch makes it easier to collect the roots. Again, the sapphire technique allows us to open very controlled channels. All this has led to more successful hair transplants.
In fact, this is the most important stage of hair transplantation. Firstly, are you the right candidate? What are your expectations? How old are you? Do you have any other medical conditions? All these should be carefully assessed by the hair transplant surgeon. Success is not possible without proper planning.
If there is a limited number of grafts available in the back of the head, we will first transplant in the front of the head. This is because the graft retention rate is higher in the frontal region. Also, correcting the appearance of the front is the first goal of hair transplantation. The second area is the middle of the head. Finally, it is necessary to consider transplantation for the crown area.

Question: I decided to have FUE done. I think FUE made with sapphire is the best. I don’t know exactly, but what percentage of FUE will be successful? What Percent Does FUE Hair Transplant survive?
Clinicante (Specialist Dr. Yakup Şensoy MD): Actually, you have the right information. We also perform hair transplants using the Sapphire FUE technique. FUE is already a very successful method. But the success rate increases when sapphire is used. In general, the rate of hair retention is 90-100%.

Question: I decided to have a hair transplant. When I look at the internet sites: There are many methods mentioned. Is FUE really a successful method? What is the success rate of hair transplantation?
Clinicante (Specialist Dr. Yakup Şensoy MD): Yes, there are several methods. However, the most valid and successful method today is the FUE method. We have been using this method for a very long time. Therefore, we have gained a lot of experience. Especially the experience of doctors in this field has increased a lot. That is why we recommend the FUE method. We use sapphire tips in our FUE application. The success rate of a well done FUE is over 90%. In other words, over 90% of transplanted hair remains.

Question: I decided to have my hair transplanted. But I’m wondering something. I wonder if I can get definitive results from hair transplantation? Will hair transplantation fail? Does Hair Transplantation Fail?
Clinicante (Specialist Dr. Yakup Şensoy MD): Although rare, hair transplants do fail. But a well planned professional hair transplant is usually very successful. In other words, most transplanted hair remains. In a centre where a professional doctor practices, it is very difficult to fail. Although rare, infections can develop. Or, although rare, necrosis may occur in the graft area. Too many attempts at implantation can also lead to failure. These are rare reasons for failure. When well planned and carried out under the right conditions, hair transplantation is successful.
We find that the Sapphire FUE technique has a higher success rate. This is because Sapphire FUE causes less tissue and graft damage. In addition, the grafts take root more quickly where we transplant them. All this increases the success rate significantly.
In fact, the goal is 100% success. However, as there are many factors involved, it is not easy to achieve this rate. It is possible to approach this rate with a good doctor and a professional team. If the surgical technique is used correctly, the success rate of hair transplantation is very high.
In centres where only technicians work and there is no doctor in charge, everything is left to chance. So if you are lucky, you will get results. It is really difficult to know how many people do or do not get results. Because most hair transplants are not recorded. In summary, the failure rate in such centres is higher than thought and it is difficult to give an exact rate. You should prefer centres where experienced doctors and their teams work. Do not leave your work to chance.
