Op.Dr. Bulent Cihantimur, “It is hair transplant, not hair plant”

Op.Dr. Bülent Cihantimur said; “Unfortunately, the term ‘hair transplant’, which means ‘hair transfer’ in English, is mistranslated into Turkish as ‘hair plant’ ”.

Op. Dr. Bulent CihantimurChairman of the Executive Board at Estetik International Healthcare Group, Op. Dr. Bülent Cihantimur shared information about the procedure known across the globe as “hair transplant”, which implies “hair transfer”, but is called “hair plant” among people in Turkey.

Dr. Cihantimur asserted that the term hair transplant suffers mistranslation into our language, since it is translated as "hair plant" instead of hair transfer.  Emphasizing that the wrong translation is starting to take root in the language, he shared their concern about the issue: “In order to avoid that pitfall and assume a sensitive approach towards our profession, our doctors and experts at Estetik International term the procedure as “hair transfer” instead of “hair plant”.”

“In today’s world, hair transplant is a well-renowned remedy to baldness and weak hair. Hair follicles are removed from the nape or other areas of the body where the follicles are strong, and transferred to the problem area. At Estetik International Healthcare Group, we perform the innovative FUE method in hair transplant procedures. This method secures a more rapid recovery of scars as well as faster hair growth, while it incurs no complications such as loss of sensation, constriction during scar recovery, or thinning. The method can also be applied to the beard and moustache area with weak hair or no hair at all”, Cihantimur added.
