According to an Ifop survey, 13% of French people claim to be suffering from baldness (2015 figures). Men and women are not equal when it comes to hair loss. If 2% of women complain of baldness, 25% of men report the presence of this problem. Today, it is no longer a question of admitting defeat in the face of hair loss.

Hair loss: the hormones involved

“Every person has two types of hair. Some, called hormone-dependent, are linked to testosterone; they are the ones who fall. The others, implanted in a crown around the skull, never fall out,” explains Dr. Paul Benet , hair transplant specialist in Paris.

 

 

Not all men are equal when it comes to hair loss . Indeed, the role of hormones is very important since the more men have a high level of male hormones and the more they will lose their hair. Also, some men have normal testosterone levels, but have more 5 alpha receptors on hormone-dependent hair. Precisely, scientific research has highlighted the importance of dihydrotestosterone, a hormone derived from testosterone. The latter shortens the hair growth cycle which inevitably leads to hair loss. In the case of so-called androgenetic alopecia, the first hairs to fall are those located at the level of the temples and the forehead, or on the back part of the head.

 

In recent years, medicine has found solutions to provide people facing this problem. Hair transplantation remains the only effective and lasting solution to baldness. This is a redistribution of the remaining hair capital at the level of the Hippocratic crown.

 

For optimal results, there are two major techniques. These two approaches are aimed at both women and men. The first, called Follicular Units Extraction (FUE), is a technique performed via hair-by-hair sampling. Conversely, the second technique, Follicular Units Transplantation (FUT) allows the hair to be removed by strip. While FUE induces dot-shaped white microscars on the scalp, FUT leaves a very fine horizontal linear scar one millimeter wide on the back of the patient's head. Another advantage, this second technique allows you to move more hair in a single session.

 

 

The two hair transplant techniques

In detail, the FUT uses a strip measuring between 1 and 2 cm wide and up to 20 cm long, that is to say that the area can extend from one ear to the other. The sampling area is then closed with staples or a suture. “As part of Follicular Units Transplantation, the strip is dissected under the microscope follicular unit by follicular unit. It makes it possible to make follicular units that can group together up to five hairs during the collection, which gives more density”, summarizes Dr. Paul Benet.

 

Before adding: “Today, FUT hair transplantation represents an extremely efficient technique. It makes it possible to collect up to 10,000 hairs extracted from a strip of scalp after dissection under the microscope with a maximum yield greater than 98%”. Conversely, there can be up to 30% loss with FUE during collection. In terms of results, FUT gives a better density than FUE, in fewer sessions.

 

 

Hair transplant: do we shave the neck?

If the FUT does not require shaving, it is however imperative to shave the neck during a FUE hair transplant. Another major difference: FUT does not cause dedensification of the donor area unlike FUE. A precision, regardless of the sampling technique, the way of reimplantation remains the same with both techniques.

 

“ Hair transplantation gives very good results as a treatment for baldness. After an initial consultation, we determine together the most appropriate grafting technique. The method is rather simple, you have to take a sample from the back of the head and reimplant it above”, summarizes Dr. Paul Benet. Good news, this reimplanted hair does not change in nature and therefore does not fall out, because it was taken from an area where it is eternal.

 

“These two techniques are performed under local anesthesia. Post-operatively, the patient may feel discomfort, the skin may pull a little and then the pain disappears quickly. Some people also see a small edema appear. Indeed, the anesthetic product injected into the scalp descends on the forehead and the eyelids, thus causing swelling which disappears quickly”, specifies Dr. Paul Benet.

 

 

Beware of bogus deals

For FUT, in the majority of cases, a single session is sufficient for hair transplantation and usually it lasts between five and six hours. In some cases, a second session may be useful if the area concerned is very large. An FUE session lasts, on average, eight hours.

 

The price of the hair transplant varies according to the establishments, the technique and the specialists, it is generally invoiced between 2000 and 10,000 euros HT. A sum that is not covered by Social Security, because this intervention is considered a cosmetic operation. “Hair transplantation is open to all people in good health,” adds Dr. Paul Benet.

 

Medical tourism is not without risk

Today there is a real medical tourism of hair transplantation. Turkey, Tunisia... These countries offer packages at very attractive prices (with the flight, the operation, the stay at the hotel) and very far from those practiced in France.

 

 

However, medical tourism is not without risk. Generally, the patient does not know the surgeon and meets him only just before the intervention. Similarly, post-operative follow-up is also very fast and patients sometimes find themselves a little lost. So, before leaving, find out about the clinic and the surgeon, don't be fooled by very (too) attractive prices.

Mustafa Yilmaz


My vision of hair transplantation is totally in line with this perspective: to be at the service of regained well-being through effective techniques that give natural results. The hair, in women of course, but in men, it is the force of life, it is the finery. Losing them is truly an injury, a trauma. It’s terrible!

Also, I enjoy listening to my patients and never judging them. I am then able to give them the best advice and allow them to regain their self-confidence.

I naturally surrounded myself with a caring, expert and extremely rigorous team in its field to be sure to offer men and women who suffer from baldness solutions that work, without ever ignoring safety and reliability.

The used techniques depend on Dr. Mustafa Yilmaz decision after doing the medical diagnosis, Choi Pen / DHI - Sapphire - Micro FUE are used normally in our operations.

Emine Karabash


I started dermatology almost 15 years ago now and thanks to my encounters with other dermatologists, I quickly turned to medical aesthetics.

More and more women and men want to feel good about their hair, and when this is the case, one gains confidence in oneself, in everyday life, in social life and in work.

I have also always remained "classic", in this movement that is now called the "Soft touch", namely to privilege discretion, elegance, and of course, naturalness. Not ostentatious! I prefer to repair what is damaged, rather than change or modify.

The used techniques depend on Dr Emine’s decision after doing the medical diagnosis, Choi Pen / DHI - Sapphire - Micro FUE are used normally in our operations.

Ayshe Yalchin

Before & After


Hair Transplantation & Methods


DHI Hair Transplant

The DHI hair transplantation method, which is called direct hair implant, is performed by implanting the follicles using a special tool with fine-tipped needles.

DHI Hair Transplant

The DHI hair transplantation method, which is called direct hair implant, is performed by implanting the follicles using a special tool with fine-tipped needles.

While performing this process, there is no incision or stitch scar at all. The purpose of this transplantation method is to minimize the time that the hair follicles stay outside and place the follicles with a good density and continuously.

Fue Hair Transplant

With the FUE method (Follicular Unit Extraction), the hair follicles are taken one by one with a special micro-motor and the aid of local anesthesia.

FUE Hair Transplant

With the FUE method (Follicular Unit Extraction), the hair follicles are taken one by one with a special micro-motor and the aid of local anesthesia; grafts are repositioned afterwards in the bald areas, according to the angle and the natural direction of hair growth.

Generally the donor area (the area from which the follicles are taken) is the back of the head. Since the nape follicles are genetically stronger and more resistant to shedding, this region is preferred as a donor area. However, if the area is not dense enough, grafts are collected from other parts of the body.

Sapphire Fue Hair Transplant

Although the Sapphire Fue hair transplantation method is not much different from other transplantation methods.

Sapphire Fue Hair Transplant

Although the Sapphire Fue hair transplantation method is not much different from other transplantation methods, with this technique the micro channels are opened by fine tips of sapphire, a precious stone.

On the contrary, in classical fue, the process is performed by metal slit. Likewise, after the follicles are taken one by one from the donor area, they are carefully placed according to the direction and angle of the hair.

Beard and Mustache

Beard and mustache transplantation is a procedure designed for those with a loss of beard or mustache.

Beard and mustache transplantation

Beard and mustache transplantation is a procedure designed for those with a loss of beard or mustache. Beard and mustache are an important part of a man’s appearance, as much as their hair.

This method is recommended in cases of hair loss caused by the testosterone hormone, for those with thinning beard hair wishing to have a bushy beard. It is possible to get a healthy and natural look of the beard by undergoing a beard transplant operation.
