NEW! Hair Transplants
Introducing our new transplants working with the best clinic in Turkey utilising the latest techniques giving you great results at great prices – Solving your hair loss problems for good!
Hair Transplants – British Standards at Turkish prices!
The Regrow Hair Centre has spent countless hours and many visits to search for the best transplant surgeons and clinics in Turkey who live up to our standards for excellence giving our patients the confidence that they are getting not only an excellent service but also value for money.
We have joined forces with Avicen Hair who are specialists in the latest techniques for hair transplants and have carried out over 40,000 transplants since their existence. We only use the best techniques providing the best results. These techniques are:
Sapphire FUE – using a sapphire blade to create the channels for the hair follicle to be inserted into allows the holes to be closer together giving the patient a denser more naturally looking hair line. If required hair follicles can also be taken from other areas of the body should the donor area be insufficient for maximum results.
DHI – The latest technique available where a patient needn’t shave the head to insert new follicles. Popular with women and men who have a lot of hair but certain areas of thinning where DHI can increase follicles and create denser hair in that area. Retention rates for DHI are extremely high and due to the less invasive procedure healing time is a lot quicker

What kind of anesthesia is used in hair transplant operation?
Local anesthesia is used in hair transplant operation and you will not feel anything, many patients have even fallen asleep its that comfortable!
Can I have general anesthesia for hair transplant operation?
General anesthesia is not required for hair transplant. It can be done optionally, but it is not recommended. In practice, we almost never do general anesthesia in hair transplants.
After the Operation
How long does the scabs remain?
Scabs usually remain for about 7-10 days after the operation not pick the scabs they will fall out when the wound is healed – try and be patient.
How is the proper care in first 7-10 days after the operation?
Just after the operation (day 1), you will have a bandage and hairband in your head to stop from swelling. It is important to keep them on for the next 2 days before initial wash.
On day 2, before you leave, initial wash is performed by the doctor. We provide you with special shampoo and lotion that are used during the first 10 days. Bandage and hairband are removed. We describe post-op care and hair wash procedure to you, so that you can perform it yourself.
Scabs start go down in 7-10 days, and after that it is not understood that you had hair transplant. Newly transplanted hair starts to grow around this period.
It is not recommended to take alcohol during this period.
AFTER CARE IS CARRIED OUT BACK IN THE UK WITH REGROW HAIR CENTRE – IT IS STRONGLY ADVISED TO CARRY OUT HAIR GROWTH INJECTIONS 1 MONTH AFTER TRANSPLANT FOR INCREASED STRENGTH AND SPEED OF GROWTH.
When does the newly transplanted hair become visible?
Growth of newly transplanted hair becomes obvious by month 3. During this period, we recommend the following:
• Avoid scratching and too much touching
• Avoid direct sunlight, especially in summer
• Avoid hot showers to your head
• Allow your hair to take fresh air. For example, if you wear hat, don’t make it tight
• Avoid smoking
How long does it take to achieve `full coverage`?
Growth of newly transplanted hair continues after month 3. Full results are achieved by month 6-12. Taking the hair regrowth injections that we offer will speed up the growth process and help with the strength of the hair.
