Afro Hair Transplant
WHAT IS AFRO HAIR TRANSPLANT?
Afro Hair Transplant is a microsurgical technique applied to people with tight curls, wavy and curly hair follicles.
HOW IS AFRO HAIR TRANSPLANT PERFORMED?
Afro Hair Transplant is similar to other methods and can be applied using both DHI and FUE techniques. The most challenging factor in this operation is that the grafts taken from the donor area have a curve under the scalp, so follicle harvesting is done more carefully and cautiously. For clients with this hair type, problems such as fraying, breakage are very common due to its density. With the start of the Afro Hair Transplant operation, the localized scalp is made ready for harvesting.
It is also important to remove the grafts, which must be removed with a micromotor without damaging the hair follicles located in the donor area, while maintaining the same form. The follicles are kept in a special solution and transferred. Another important point in this regard is that individuals with afro hair texture are susceptible to keloid scar deformation due to their scalp structure. It is inevitable to get a successful result with the necessary care and attention in the operation performed and the resposibility of the after care by the patient.
TO WHO CAN AFRO HAIR TRANSPLANT BE APPLIED?
Afro Hair Transplant is different from the hair structure of Caucasian and Asian individuals and is applied to people of African and Caribbean origin. Since the hair follicles of people belonging to this race are more characteristic and parallel compared to other hair, it also slows down the growth. Afro Hair Transplant can be applied to any individual with curly hair structure and dense curls. Suitability of the donor area and general health status is sufficient for the approval of the operation.

There are two different methods used in Afro Hair Transplant operation. These methods are
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)
DHI (Direct Hair Implantation)

WHAT IS THE PRICE OF AFRO HAIR TRANSPLANT?
Afro Hair Transplant is a surgıcal solution for ethnic hair loss. Regardless of gender, this operation, which is applied with a method that is suitable for the person, helps to eliminate the existing hair loss and the appearance that the person suffers from. Afro Hair Transplant is more difficult and challenging than other methods. The reason for this is to remove the graft directly in line with its own structure without damaging the dense hair follicles that go along with dense curls. The direction and method of the transfer area is as important as the graft intake. Afro Hair Transplant operation should be performed by specialized and experienced nurses under the supervision of competent doctors. The process of waiting for the graft harvesting in the solution is also valuable in terms of sterility and constitutes a risk in terms of infection. The first thing that should be considered by the person who decides on the operation during the approval process is not the pricing, but the fact that the procedure should be performed in clinics and centers accepted by the Ministry of Health directive. Otherwise, inappropriate method, wrong intervention, scar formation on the scalp in an unsterile environment is inevitable and infection is possible. Pricing for Afro Hair Transplant operation varies between $2500 and $4500 in Turkey, while in continents such as the European Union and America, it is between $5000 and $8000.
CAN WOMEN ALSO HAVE AFRO HAIR TRANSPLANT?
Afro Hair Transplant is a permanent microsurgical solution for hair loss caused by genetic, hormonal or environmental factors among women of African and Caribbean origin. Cycastric Alopecia or Traction Alopecia conditions, which are common in African individuals, cause hair loss and transform the damaged hair follicles of women of African and Caribbean origin into scar tissue. Afro Hair Transplant is the most natural solution for these diagnoses that cause permanent thinning and hair loss complications. In this method, FUE method is generally preferred due to its dense and curly nature, but DHI method, which is performed only by shaving the donor area, tightening the existing hair and camouflaging the opening, may be considered more appropriate. Afro Hair Transplantation can be applied to any woman with tight curls and curly hair with general health status and donor area suitability.
