Corrective Hair Transplant in Turkey

Hair transplantation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed across the world. Although the chances of successful outcomes related to hair transplantation are high, this procedure also has a risk of side effects and undesirable outcomes.

The rising popularity of this procedure has also led to a trend of people without the necessary skills and qualifications performing this procedure. This has contributed to a rise in the number of cases with adverse outcomes and failed hair transplants.

Luckily, a corrective procedure called the hair transplant scar removal or hair transplant repair in Turkey can reverse the damage and improve the results.

Here is a brief discussion about hair transplant repair in Turkey and the various techniques employed for corrective hair transplant.

What causes hair scarring?

A hair transplantation procedure involves removing hairs from one area of the scalp called the donor site and transplanting or inserting them into the bald or thin area of the head called the recipient area. Unfortunately, both these processes require making incisions into the skin, resulting in scarring.

FUT Hair Transplant

Scarring in the donor or recipient area usually occurs following hair transplant procedures such as FUT (Follicular unit transplantation) or FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). The scarring caused due to FUT is usually wider.

Overharvested Hair Transplant

In FUE, if the donor area is over-harvested, or when the grafts are taken too close to each other, the treatment may leave patchy areas of baldness.

Overharvesting can also occur when the surgeons overestimate the number of hair grafts needed for the hair transplant. As a result, too many follicles are extracted from the back of the head, leading to patchy growth, scarring, and inadequate follicles left for follow-up procedures.

Hence, generally, it is advisable to avoid removing more than one out of four follicular units for the procedure.

Alopecia Scarring Repair

Alopecia scarring can occur due to inflammation, exposure to excessive heat, chemicals, and infection. Alopecia scarring can be repaired or even stopped and reversed, provided the corrective hair transplant scar removal is performed at the early stage of damage. [1] [2]

Most people are able to notice a remarkable difference in alopecia scarring after using anti-inflammatory medication. These medications can interfere with the activities of inflammatory cells that cause hair follicle destruction thereby minimizing the damage.

In some cases, oral treatment with hydroxychloroquine, or injectable medications having corticosteroids such as triamcinolone acetonide may be needed to repair alopecia scarring.

Which hair transplant technique leaves a scar?

Both FUE and FUT techniques of hair transplant leave scarring.

FUE involves the use of hair follicles from the sides and back of the scalp individually using a micro-punch tool. The extraction can leave a tiny round scar, measuring around 1 mm in diameter.

FUT involves the surgical removal of a strip of the scalp typically from the back of the head. The area is later sutured together leaving linear scars of varying lengths, depending on the size of the extracted strip.

What are the scar repair options?

The hair transplant scarring can be corrected by scar revision. This treatment is particularly useful in cases of wide scarring caused due to FUT.

During scar revision, the scars can be removed, and then, re-sutured with trichophytic closure. In some cases, micro-pigmentation can be performed to camouflage the areas of hair loss using pigments that cover the exposed areas.

Grafting is another method of hair transplant repair in which a few grafts are implanted into scars to minimize their visibility.

Corrective hair transplant by FUE technique

Revisional hair transplant surgery is recommended in some cases to build on the density of the hair and correct a hairline. This is usually done by using the FUE method of hair transplant and inserting grafts from the donor region and transplanting them to the parts of the scalp having scarring.

Corrective scar repair in Turkey using the FUE technique can be applied in cases where:

  • The donor region appears abused.
  • The hairline is not well-formed or is sparse in proportion to the face.
  • There is scarring in the recipient area due to improper implantation.
  • The quality of the procedure regarding the direction of the transplanted hair and naturalness is low.
  • There is limited density in the recipient areas of hair implantation.
  • Poor placement and large grafts make the results look unnatural.


Applying the FUE hair transplant can help a skilled hair transplant surgeon achieve improvement in the appearance of the treated area and accelerate the restoration of previous results.

It is also important to note that the results of this repair procedure depend on the availability of enough donor hair, which can be ensured by avoiding overharvesting.

This points to the need to consult a skilled and experienced hair transplant surgeon who can determine the number of hairs for transplant with a higher accuracy thus avoiding overharvesting.

How long does the corrective hair transplant take?

The time required for the corrective hair transplant ranges from 4 to 6 hours depending on factors such as the number of grafts to be collected and placed. The duration of the procedure increases when a higher number of grafts are needed.

Hair transplant repair by SMP

Combining hair transplant scar removal with SMP is one of the effective ways to improve the results. While a hair transplant can return a large amount of hair to the scalp, SMP can cover the scars left as a result of this procedure.

PRP treatment

PRP (Platelet-rich plasma) treatment uses cells from the patient’s own blood for reducing inflammation and supporting tissue healing. PRP treatment can also help to promote the regrowth of hair and reduce hair loss occurring as a result of non-scarring alopecia.

Studies have shown that PRP treatment can provide encouraging results for certain types of hair loss, especially lichen planopilaris. [3]

Can overharvested donor area be repaired?

Yes, overharvested donor area can be repaired when it leaves obvious scarring. A skilled surgeon can remove the remaining hair safely and transplant them back into the donor area, thus assisting in camouflaging the scarring.
