Hair transplantation is a permanent procedure. The hair follicles transplanted during hair transplantation are genetically resistant to the hair shedding effect of the hormone testosterone. The planted hair will remain in the area where it is transferred for life. If the hair that was planted was shed after a while, there would be no point in doing hair transplantation.
Some conditions that require hair transplantation
- Hairless conditions caused by Burns and surgery scars
- Male pattern hair loss

In a psychological condition called trichotillomania, where the hair is constantly pulled and played and plucked in a teak state, hair transplantation can be applied safely. In addition, the natural eyebrow mustache and beard appearance can be achieved by hair transplantation to areas such as eyebrows, moustaches and beards.
There is no exact age limit in hair transplantation. However, early hair transplantation can have irreversible bad results in the forward term. Therefore, young people under the age of 20 should not rush to hair transplantation, first of all, they should consult with a qualified and experienced doctor and refer them to preventive treatment or more appropriate method.
What Are The Numbers Given In Hair Transplantation?
The amount to be transplanted in hair transplantation refers to the number of hair follicles. The number of hairs can be more than twice the amount of hair follicles. This is why it can be confusing to talk about the amount of hair strands that are recommended to the patient before hair transplantation. If we consider that each hair root contains more than one hair strand, we are actually transplanting 3,000 hair follicles between 8000 and 10,000 hairs.
