The report also revealed that male patients for hair transplantation were more as compared to their female counterpart.
Why has hair transplantation become such a trend? This is simply because hair loss has become an everyday issue across the world and the bad news is that medicines and shampoos don’t always work! In such a scenario, hair transplantation is the only logical answer.

The price of hair transplantation in the UK is definitely going to blow a hole in your pocket. Here's what Washington Post has to say:
In fact, Istanbul is such a hot spot for hair transplantation that almost 5,000 people visit each month to get this surgery done!
A state of the art technique is used for hair transplantation in Istanbul and it is known as FUE (follicular unit extraction). Follicular unit extraction involves extraction of hair follicles from the donor area of your scalp without requiring linear incision. The hair follicles taken from the donor area are then transplanted. The entire procedure requires the use of highly advanced 1-mm hollow needles. This type of extraction not only leads to quicker recovery time for the patient but also lowers post-operative discomfort significantly.
The other types of hair transplantation procedures that patients can opt for include:
- FUT - Follicular Unit Transplantation
- Eyebrow Transplantation
- Hair Density boost
- Hairline Corrective Surgery
"One solution fits all" doesn't really work here and the needs of each patient is different from the other. Hence, the hair transplantation plans are tailored according to the needs and convenience of patients!
Hair transplantation doesn’t just add hair to your scalp or prevents hair loss; it transforms your entire personality! After all, who doesn’t want to sway their hair with the cool breeze or simply show off their new angular fringe hairstyle!
