What is the hair transplant surgery?
The hair transplant surgery consists of the phenomena of transporting good hairs from the donor area to the area which is affected by hair loss or complete baldness. It is considered as surgical beauty surgery which we offer at Ozel hospital which is well renowned for hair transplants , most of the patients have hair transplanted from the back of the head also known as the donor area but we also have cases where we use chest hair, beard hair depending on the quality and density of each individual, regardless of which area the donor hair comes from we ensure a safe and successful hair transplant for each and every patient because Ozel is the top in this field.
There is no doubt that hair loss effects the individual due to the drastic appearance change they undergo, this can effect self-esteem and cause long term social and confidence issues, this is why many of these people turn towards Ozel to resolve this issue because we are experts in this field and are amongst the top hospitals that specialize in hair transplant surgery in turkey.
When it comes to choosing the correct location for hair transplant reputation is everything, also the previous success rate of the clinic or hospital plays a big role in the patients chose as well as the technique’s that are used along with the experience levels of the doctors and consultant team, with a higher experiences team the chances of a successful surgery is also higher.
Techniques used at OZEL
Ozel uses the latest state of the art technology and techniques for the surgery which compromises of transporting donor hair to the affected areas, these techniques are as such:
FUE Technique consists of comprising the balding area of the head with the healthy hairs usually found at the rear end of the head or as commonly named the ‘donor area’ the follicle transportation using FUE has a greater direction in regards to the angle of implantation.
The steps for FUE are:
Extraction, opening of channel’s hair graft growth
In this procedure very precise and professional tools are used, it has shown a great success rate since its introduction in 2013.
The procedure is not conducted by hand rather using a micro graph motor which extracts the hair follicles after the skull is put under local anesthesia.
DHI technique using CHOI PEN
The Choi pen to a certain degree looks and feels a lot like a normal pen except the tip is compromise of a hollow cylindular shaped needle which is 0.07 cm in diameter, this pen removes the grafts using the needle and transport them from the donor area to the affected, this is done directly, without the need to open any channels as is with other procedures , DHI offers great results as it increases hair density and can also implant 70 grafts for every cm, this procedure doesn’t require the original hair to be shaved off either.
Another factor that differentiates the DHI procedure is the speed of the recovery of the patients’ new hair which is visible within an hour after the operation; it also leaves very minimal scar tissue damage and is able to direct the angle of hair growth which enables a 100 percent natural look.
Each hair follicle remains inside the pen until its needed for transplantation, its also able to be put aside, more than one pen can be used for each surgery without any issue.
The pen used in this procedure comes from the precious stone also known as sapphire, it is known for its durability.
This technique makes the opening of the channels a very precise which is not visible to the eye, sapphire leaves less scar tissue damage then the FUE procedure due the slim design on the sapphire stone.
Using body Hair technique BHT
Sometimes the patient doesn’t have the required amount of hair in the back area of his head which destroys his chances of using this area as a donor area, in this circumstance doctors are forced to extract donor hair from the area in which the patients has a greater hair presence such as the beard, chest hair, calf muscle, this procedure is referred to as BHT- body hair transplant.
Steps of the hair transplant surgery
There are many steps taken pre and post-surgery that ensures a successful transplant, also certain instructions must be given in order for a safe and sound procedure without any complications, we will now explain this in finer detail.

Specific details of the surgery
There are important steps that ensure a safe and successful surgery
Our team inside the hospital will use a local anesthetic using a device called comfort in , this device is very different in that it removes all elements of pain for the patient which has made the surgery a enjoyable and pain free experience, after this step we enter the period of identifying the donor area, other clinics do not consider this step as an important step yet a secondary one of importance, but here at ozel hospital we take this step very seriously and give it the utmost importance, we believe that it is a great factor that leads to success of the surgery in that each individual has a different area according to his or her exact location of hair loss and the distance from the front of the skull, and the amount of hair present this area differs from each person also,
The team of experienced doctors at ozel focus on this step carefully to ensure that they obtain the hair roots which contain three hairs at least which helps hair density in the long run and increases the chances of a successful surgery and natural hair look post-surgery, the doctors also insists that the hairs that are extracted are those of close proximity to each other and similar angle growth to ensure that there is no scare tissue damage visible post surgery.
After the extraction phase we turn to the second stage which is referred to as the opening of channels.
First of all we begin we design and draw the forehead line this is considered to be a very important stage as it project’s the image as a whole as it is the front image of the face , our doctors study all the angles and corners of the head to ensure that the most precise line is drawn to enable a accurate opening of the channels which are done to tilted 45 degree angle to give a very natural look…
A light meal is provided and also some rest time before entering the final stage of this surgery which is the stage referred to as graft or hair growth which have been previously extracted from inside the opened channels , the team at ozel focus on growing the extracted hairs in the same angle of natural growth to ensure the patient receives a very natural look post growth.
