Hair transplantation is one of the most frequently performed aesthetic operations. The most commonly used technique in hair transplantation is the follicular unit extraction (FUE).
Beard and Mustache Transplantation
Beards/mustaches, due to various traumas, burns, accidents and various skin problems, are lost and do not grow out regularly. The only definitive and permanent treatment method for these problems is beard/mustache transplantation.
Eyebrow transplantation is a procedure that takes 1.5–3 hours to complete, depending on the required number of grafts. Using the Micro FUE method, single grafts that provide hair with similar thickness, color and structure to the eyebrow get extracted.
What is hair transplantation?
In the FUE method, hair grafts taken from the scalp (from the donor area) with the help of a tool (punch) are implanted in the balding area. The operation is performed under local anesthesia. Specialized clinics follow certain stages to increase the success rate.
Hair Transplantation Stages at Anatomica
When our candidates from abroad reach us through our website, social media, forums, WhatsApp or telephone, our patient consultants speak(s) to them in their own language and ask(s) them for pictures from both sides, front, top and back of the head. This way, our experts can make a proper orientation after defining the suitability of the hair for operation, how wide the opening is, and which areas can be implanted. At this stage, our candidate is informed about what to expect at our center. As they will need approximately 3 days for the whole procedure, they are advised to set their travel plans accordingly.
Hotel reservations are taken care of by our center. When the candidate lands, our drivers meet them at the airport and take them to the hotel in our VIP vehicles. The next day, we pick them up at the hotel and bring them to our center.
Once our guests arrive to our clinic, they are welcomed by our receptionists and patient coordinators and taken to the hair transplantation floor for the consultation. During the consultation, our specialist makes the final assessment according the number of the hair follicles to be extracted and the receiving area. A proper planning and the compatibility between our specialist’s suggestions and the patient expectations are the key factors for a successful hair transplantation result. Pre and post operation processes are also discussed in detail during the consultation and the patient’s before and after photos are taken to be able to make a proper evaluation of the results and for future follow ups.
Stage 1: Extraction of the hair follicles
After the necessary examinations are made, the first stage starts. This stage takes about 1.5 hours. The process starts by shaving the hair. The area where hair follicles will be extracted is anesthetized with local anesthetic drugs. For a comfortable hair transplant operation, special tools are used while applying local anesthesia. Grafts extracted using a punch, picked according to the case, are kept in a special solution.
Stage 2 : Hairline & Channel opening
In the second stage, the person’s frontal hair line is redefined, and local anesthesia is applied to the selected area. Following this procedure, channels are opened in the area where the grafts will be implanted. The channel opening process is one of the most important parts of hair transplantation, since it defines how natural looking the hair is going to be.
After opening the channels, the grafts, which are kept in a special solution, are carefully implanted into the channels. After the procedure is completed, the area where the hair follicles were extracted is carefully bandaged and our guest is rested for a certain period of time. After a general examination is done and the needed instructions and medications are given, our patient is dropped off at the hotel with our VIP vehicles.
On the day after the operation, our patient comes to our center for a general examination and removal of the bandage. If our patient will still be in the city on the third day after the operation, they come to our center again. The hair gets washed by our team, they explain how to wash the hair for a certain time and all the rules that must be followed. Then, our guest is transported to the airport by our transfer team.

In the FUE method, the hair follicles from the area above the neck where there is no hair loss are taken out one by one with the FUE engine and implanted towards the balding area. Hair transplantation takes between 5 and 7 hours depending on the hair follicle to be transplanted, and the procedure is performed under local anesthesia.
Hair transplant procedures are comfortable since local anesthesia is used, so no pain is felt.
From the third/fourth week, the transplanted hair falls, so around the second month after the transplantation, the patient appears as before. From this moment, the transplanted follicular units begin to produce new hair. In the 3rd month, new hair grows and that hair is long-lasting hair.
