About the department

The hair transplant department at Smile Hair Clinic Istanbul provides various types of hair transplantation. A highly qualified and friendly team of medical staff has a wealth of experience restoring hair's health and beauty. Doctors supervise all clinic procedures, and each team member involved in the operation has a medical education. To date, thousands of patients from other countries have undergone successful hair transplant surgery in the department. The department accepts patients from 18 to 65 years old. Hair transplantation is possible not only on the head but also on the eyebrows, beard and body. Doctors of the department are responsible for the aesthetic appearance, so before hair transplantation, individual consultations are held in which the desired result of treatment is discussed and planned.

The hair transplant methods offered in the department include Micro Sapphire FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction), the most advanced and latest hair transplant method. Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) is also available for less coverage or hairline correction. All procedures are performed under local anaesthesia. In addition to transplantation, the department offers skin mesotherapy that prevents hair loss and stimulates their growth.
