Hair loss. Mostly caused by genetic factors, also called pattern baldness, baldness is a popular problem especially with men. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, more than fifty percent of all men will be affected by pattern baldness. If we add the hair loss that is caused by other factors, the number goes up to almost every three men of four will experience baldness over age fifty. And in recent years there is a solution for that problem. Hair transplantation. It is a treatment made by taking your own body hairs, especially from the neck area, and uses it in the areas of hair loss. These hairs are resilient against the hormones that cause your hair loss.
Over time this procedure became so popular, clinics that applied this procedure grew very high in numbers. This quick rise brings quick developments too. That’s why we are going to explain some of the important parts.

Hair Implantation in Istanbul

Istanbul is one of the best choices for hair implantation. Especially in the last two-three years, people come from even the farthest countries. The main reason for this huge attention is medical quality in the country. Turkey has been the best choice for some time for the people from the Middle East, and Europe. Geographically, Istanbul has a big potential. Being in the centre of all makes it easy to access for people. Being a megacity attracts the best workers of all jobs. And the best surgeons, who do their jobs at Istanbul, make a solid background over the years for their works. Tourists mostly come for hair implantation and mostly hear this marvellous medical work from their acquaintances. The rest of the patients find the best clinics on the internet. This is no ‘try and find out’ kind of thing. Of course, this procedure contains almost no risk to human health, not a dangerous surgery like the heart or brain-based surgeries. But no one wants to travel all the way and pay all the money for a ‘chance’ of success. And doctors in Istanbul know this very well.

Recently, apart from medical quality some of the clinics in Istanbul started to give some other services as well. They give transportation, accommodation and touristic trip services. They usually assign people who speak the patients’ native languages to keep them from feeling like a stranger. These services, the industry’s pioneers surgeons and a chance to see cultural treasures of Istanbul make a valid point for how this city became best in this.

The Things That Must Be Considered Before and After Transplantation

You have decided to get a hair transplant. But where to begin? The most important thing to do before hair transplantation is research. The more expert clinic you find the best results you get. The best surgeons will always give information about the pre and post-procedure preparations. But for an early warning, the most common thing to do is about drinking alcohol and smoking. You should not do these two things before surgery for a week. The other complications are specialized in person; an expert doctor will prepare a personal list for you. These factors include medication treatments you are on, chronic diseases you have and food diet.

Full recovery after this procedure is around two and a half to four months. The most important time is the first fifteen days. First two days, the treated area should not be touched with anything. This includes taking a shower. In the first two weeks, any kind of sport activity is forbidden. Along with activities like sauna, spa or solarium. Any kind of blood thinner supplements or medicines are considered risky in this process. And using clothes with zippers or buttons are advised to prevent any contact with the treated area. Only scissors are allowed for use for hair cut after the two weeks. After forty-five weeks, any kind of hair care can be administered. For a successful operation, after four months your hair will grow normally as it recovers fully.

As we said before, hair transplantation in Istanbul has other perks. And as other perks, we mean touristic trips. Almost everyone who comes to Istanbul for hair transplantation stays a couple of extra days just for sightseeing. It is no surprise they do that, Istanbul is a city that mesmerizes everyone. And also includes money issues. A transplantation treatment made in Europe can cost much more than Turkey with less quality, and no chance to see places like Hagia Sophia. This alone transforms a medical trip into an ancient adventure. For you who want to see the riches of this city, here is a list of places you can visit.

1. Hagia Sophia

Before you visit this place you must know these few facts. Its name is a combination of Greek and Latin languages. It is ordered to be built by Byzantium, designed by two Greeks, conquered by Ottoman Empire, and used as a museum by Turkey. It was a cathedral for almost nine hundred years until the Ottoman Empire conquered Constantinople. The ruling sultan and even the empire’s religion was Islam, he kept the building and converted it to a mosque. After that, it served almost five hundred years as a mosque. For nearly ninety years, it has been a museum in Turkey, Istanbul. Its history counted as the most solid proof for the harmony of religions and peoples. It is considered as a bridge over the cultures. Muslims and Christians come from all over the world to see this marvellous building, as the historic culture and architecture fans.

2. Topkapı Sarayı


Topkapı Palace is the main palace for almost four hundred years for Ottoman sultans. It is constructed deliberately close to the Grand Bazaar. This way when the ruling sultan arrives or leaves the city he would use the road inside Grand Bazaar. And one of the world’s biggest markets in its time and the economic hearth of the empire could keep close to the palace. It is considered as the ‘Brain’ of the empire, as it housed almost four hundred royal workers and advisors. It had a collection of treasures from all over the world, which still contains some of them. And right now most of the palace is open for visitors.

4. Dolmabahce Palace


The last official palace for the ruling sultan of the Ottoman Empire, Dolmabahce Palace has importance in more than one perspective. It is built on the last period of the Ottoman Empire, and ruling sultans resided here instead of Topkapı Palace. It was one of the most important buildings designed by the effects of the western style. It is said that Dolmabahce Palace has no official style of architecture. It contains multiple styles in it. It was a house to the six sultans. After the fall of the Ottoman Empire, it was used by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder and first President of the Republic of Turkey. Ataturk used this palace as a presidential residence during the summers and enacted many of his important works in here. Lastly, Ataturk died here as he was administered medical treatment on the last of his days, in Dolmabahce Palace. It was one of the first residential buildings in the history of Turkey.

5. Sultan Ahmed / Blue Mosque


As a historic mosque over five hundred years old, Sultan Ahmed Mosque or the other name Blue Mosque is still a functioning mosque. Although its construction did not bring positive comments from the people, it is an extraordinary thing that we can visit an imperial mosque that still operational. Because of the construction place, it caused anger in the Muslim jurists. It was built on the old Byzantium palace of emperors, in front of the Hagia Sophia and the hippodrome of Constantinople. But right now it brings attention mainly with its hand-painted blue tiles that adorn the interior walls. At night the mosque is bathed in blue as the lights frame thirteen domes and six minarets. Over twenty thousand handmade İznik style ceramic tiles lined in the interior walls. And over two hundred stained glass windows with exquisite designs admits natural light. Day or night, in both parts of the day Sultan Ahmed Mosque is a spectacular great mosque to see.
