All You Need to Know About Hair Implants in 2023


A new year comes with resolutions that focus on self-improvement to become a better version of yourself. While you could decide to get more exercise or break a bad habit, getting back the hair of your youth can be the perfect choice to make you feel your best in 2023.

If you have hair loss, you may have already tried temporary, high-maintenance solutions like toupees or medications and are looking for something more effective and long-term. Receiving hair implants is a permanent solution that will improve your self-confidence and appearance, giving you natural results. Our advanced technology at TecniFUE Hair Clinic will help you achieve your goal of looking younger so you can get back to living your best life.

Why Get Hair Implants in 2023?

The evolution of hair transplants has come a long way since the unnatural look of "hair plugs." Not only were these unsightly, but they only sometimes guaranteed successful results. However, they were the only option during the 1970s, so patients looking for hair restoration would accept this substandard alternative.

Fortunately, surgical methods with unpleasant side effects and hard-to-conceal scars are a thing of the past. Today's implants are a safe procedure with no significant health risks, allowing patients to return to light activities just a few days after the procedure.

What Are the Causes of Hair Loss?

Several factors can contribute to hair loss (known medically as alopecia). Aging, genetics, medical conditions, medications and hormonal changes are all possible causes of hair loss not only on your scalp but over your entire body.

Other contributing factors to hair loss include extreme stress and excessive hairstyling techniques that pull your hair tightly away from your scalp. Chemical and heat styling treatments can also cause hair loss and permanent damage. For cancer patients who receive radiation treatments, hair may not grow back due to the therapy.

How Do Hair Transplants Work?

A hair transplant is a surgical procedure that moves hair from one place to another on your scalp to fill areas suffering from baldness. There are several ways to accomplish this, depending on individual needs and surgeon recommendations. Generally, a medical professional will take hair follicles from the back of the head where hair growth is abundant and carefully transplant them to the areas of the scalp that need new growth. The procedure can be completed in a few hours, and most patients recover with minimal downtime without issue.

Is There an Age Limit?

Often hair loss is associated with aging, but men can begin losing hair in early adulthood. Did you know 25% of men start balding as early as 21 and 12% of women by 29?

Younger people may benefit from implants that are not just for mitigating hair loss on the head. There is a strong influence from celebrities who enhance their appearance with these procedures. In 2023, younger people may desire beard and chest hair implants for a more masculine appearance. Here at TechniFUE, we accept patients ranging from 19 to 65.

What Are the Methods For Hair Transplantation?

There are three methods of hair restoration: follicular unit extraction, direct hair implant, and follicular unit transplant. The FUT method is the most inexpensive and quickest of the three; however, it is not a service we offer due to potential risk factors. The two hair transplant techniques we perform at TecniFUE International are FUE and DHI.

Discover more about the procedures and why we opt out of the FUT method:

  1. Follicle unit transplantation is a process that involves taking skin from the back of the scalp where hair is fuller and less prone to hair loss. From this graft, surgeons separate small groups of hair follicles from the tissue to apply them into tiny insertions in the balding area. It can take many hours and cause an unavoidable linear scar across the back of the head with potentially hazardous side effects. Due to the potential risks of complications, our team at TechiFue Hair Clinic chooses not to offer this as a service.
  2. Follicle unit extraction is a revolutionary technique our surgeons utilize using special sapphire blades during surgery that improves speed and accuracy. Unlike FUT, the procedure involves collecting individual hair follicles directly from the scalp at the back of the head without removing a strip of tissue. The sharpness of the special blades minimizes scarring and discomfort, lessening downtime post-procedure.
  3. Direct hair implant is a newer procedure utilizing the same basic process as the FUE technique but with a Choi Pen. This tool resembles a pen with a hollow needle at one end. It allows the insertion of the hair graft into the open tip for immediate transplantation to the scalp and is the most accurate and efficient method. While it cannot cover as large an area as the FUE method, the procedure is ideal for younger patients under 35 who have yet to experience widespread baldness.

Before choosing a procedure, we would like to encourage you to meet with one of our professionals to complete thorough testing to make sure you receive the best possible service to meet your needs.

Why Choose Turkey?

One of the leading choices in the world for hair implants is in Istanbul, Turkey. The reason is the high standards of care, with pricing much more affordable than in other countries. Turkey is home to some of the top surgeons around the globe, using advanced techniques for patients looking for hair transplants and excellent care. Our team at TecniFUE is at the heart of these advancements, creating the efficient TechniFUE 8 Gen tool allowing doctors to complete numerous hair grafts simultaneously, catering to patients based on individual skin and graft types.

How Should You Educate Yourself Before a Procedure?

Hair transplant surgery can be a considerable step for you. Familiarizing yourself with as much information as possible will provide realistic expectations about the process and help relieve any nervousness you may be experiencing before you begin. This education will aid you in your initial visit with your doctor, allowing you to provide precise and educated requirements for your final goal. As such, your doctor will have a more transparent assessment of the procedure type best to suit your needs. After your surgery, you will feel more at ease during your aftercare process.

What Can You Expect From Your New Hair Implants?

For the first several days after surgery, you may experience itchiness, slight tenderness and minor bleeding. These mild side effects are expected and temporary. Your surgeon will advise you on properly caring for the affected areas during the healing process. It can take 18 months to see our new appearance's complete transformation.
