FUT is a very sophisticated technique that requires extensive surgical training by the surgeon and technicians, which is why this technique isn’t available in most Turkish clinics. This technique provides the best quality grafts while causing minimal scarring.
FUE is the individual harvesting of follicular unit grafts. The most important determinant of the quality of FUE is the training and skills of the surgical team that is doing it.
We provide unshaven FUT and FUE options for patients who need to socialize as early as possible.
Body hair, especially beard hair can be an extra source for donor hair in patients with limited donor availability at the scalp.
Makeup and tattooing can not offer a natural restoration of the eyebrows in severe eyebrow loss cases. However, when performed professionally, eyebrow transplants are the only definitive treatment for severe eyebrow loss.
Surgical hair restoration in women requires proper selection of the patient and special strategies specific to each patients condition. Very few centers in the world have the in-depth knowledge necessary to surgically treat female patients in the most effective way and AEK Hair Clinic is one of those.

Hair Transplant Cost In Turkey
How Much Does A Hair Transplant Cost?
A hair transplant in Turkey may cost anywhere between 1000 Euro to over 10000 Euro depending on the quality and how sophisticated the treatment plan is. Hair transplant surgery is not a standard off-the-shelf product; above all it requires ethics. It must be planned to fit in with everyones specific situation and needs. When comparing hair transplant cost provided by different companies, one must be aware that the quality and complexity of the offered treatments may vary significantly and that a direct comparison of the cost may be a huge mistake.
When analyzing the cost of a certain product or service, we need to know what we are getting. In the case we are purchasing ‘service’ and not a product, this is even more critical, because poor service may end end up giving us negative value. For instance, when we compare prices of movie phones, we are talking about an electronic product. When purchasing an electronic product, the most we are risking is the amount paid, that is if the mobile phone doesn’t work and we decide to throw it away, the most we will lose is the money we spend on it. Nobody can stop us from purchasing a new mobile phone if we decide to throw the previous one away. Besides, electronics come with a warranty and in case the mobile phone we buy doesn’t work properly, the provider is obliged to replace it with a new one or give our money back leading to no financial loses.
However, when purchasing a hair transplant, we are talking about service, and one that is exceptionally critical because it is related to our own health. When purchasing health service we are risking our entire health. In case the quality of service we get is poor, we could end up in huge damage to our health and even risk our life. Most risks involved in hair transplant surgery lead to permanent damage to our tissues and therefore our physical appearance. There is no way we could replace this service by purchasing a new one and the guarantees some clinics may give have no practical value. Hair transplant surgery is based on redistributing donor hairs which are very limited in number. In case donor hairs are damaged and wasted during surgery there is no way these could be recovered. There are many hair loss patients who have not been careful with their initial research in choosing a professional clinic, who have ended up in permanent damage and no future prospects to repair what has been done.
So, how can we evaluate hair transplant costs? The most important determinants of quality in hair transplant surgery are, the qualifications, credentials and skills of the doctor and the amount of involvement of this doctor. Surgical instruments, techniques, brands do not determine the quality of the treatment.
Especially, graft numbers have no relationship with the quality of a hair transplant. In fact, the quality of a hair transplant may have an opposite relationship with the number of grafts offered. Here are the reasons why:
1. Hair transplant surgery is done for hairs, not grafts. The number of grafts does not necessarily represent the number of hairs that will grow. 5000 grafts with 3000 hairs is much worse than 2000 grafts with 5000 hairs.
2. Hair transplant surgery is about causing the least amount of tissue damage. When the number of grafts per session is increased beyond a certain threshold, the procedure must be performed much faster and with much less care. Each graft receives much less time and thus the amount of tissue damage and wasted hairs increases. The patient ends up with more scars and less hairs.
3. Doing more grafts or even more hairs does not mean that all these hairs will successfully grow; when hair transplant surgery is rushed and done carelessly, the growth rate significantly decreases.
In summary, a 1000 Euro hair transplant that causes an unnatural hairline and significant donor damage, is much more expensive than a 10.000 Euro hair transplant with a natural hairline and protected donor area.

There's a lot of debate about whether to choose FUE or strip surgery (FUSS, FUT). In fact there are some instances where using both of these methods in one visit has value.
Most hair loss cases require so much work that this work exceeds what can be done over one surgical session. Trying to speeding up that process results in lowering the quality and the success of that surgical session.
