Loss of hair follicles is a health issue that is common among both men and women. It is known to affect social lives negatively and there are numerous causes of hair loss. “Androgenic Alopecia” which points to a genetic susceptibility to hair loss is the most commonly seen reason for hair loss. In such cases, the hair line of men start to recede to the back starting from the temples and this results in the person spending more time in front of the mirror in order to fix their hair every morning. Hair loss starts from the hairline and continues the top of one’s head. The sooner the hair loss begins, the faster will be its progress. Various medication, mesotherapy and PRP will only delay hair loss and the process will continue once the person stops treatment. Efficient and long-lasting solutions are possible through hair transplant to the appropriate patient.
Hair Transplantation with FUE
Recently, FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a method used throughout the entire world in order to reach natural looking results in the extraction and implantation process. The FUE method is the process of extracting live hair roots one by one from areas in which hair is present, and implanting them onto the areas of the scalp where a person has experienced hair loss. A scalpel is not used during this process and there are no scars or stitches afterwards. The operation is completed without complications or without any interference of a person’s daily life post-op. The remaining hair follicles are left undamaged after the transplant. Risks such as pain, scars, infections or bleeding are not observed after the operation. However, it is still a serious procedure that needs to be done in an operating room. ENTO serves in Hair Transplantation Centers along with its own high-tech operating rooms.

Are you an eligible candidate for hair transplantation?
Hair transplantation is the right solution for most people who has experienced hair loss. An efficient operation is possible for people with healthy donor sites.
Is it possible to transplant hair without shortening them?
If the area of transplantation is relatively small, you would not need to shorten the entire scalp for the operation. Only the area from which grafts will be taken will be shortened and transplanted. If one needs transplant in a wider area, the entire scalp will have to be shortened. Successful results are not achieved with the transplantation of long hair.

Minor pain is possible during the administration of local anesthesia. We provide comfort and relaxation during the procedure. It is possible to watch television or listen to music during the operation.
Where are the follicles extracted from during the operation?
The nape behind the two ears are usually the donor area from which hair follicles are extracted. Because the hair in that area does not fall out in time, the transplantation of those follicles enable permanent results. However, success rates are dependent on the structure of the hair in each individual.
