Options for Men with Insufficient Donor Hair Density

Hair loss has become a problem for many men and women all over the world. Thanks to advanced technologies, the effects of hair loss can be significantly reduced and even reversed for most patients who come to our modern hair transplant clinic in Turkey. However, there are also cases in which a hair transplant is not possible, as the patient has insufficient donor hair density. This is where our surgeons intervene with alternatives to hair transplants.

Below, our hair transplant surgeons in Turkey detail the alternativesfor men with insufficient donor hair density.

What are the best alternatives to a hair transplant in Turkey?

For male patients with insufficient donor hair density, our medical team advises the following alternatives to hair transplants:

  •           medication – there are several medical solutions which can help men regrow hair, including on the donor area which can later be used for a transplant;
  •           laser therapy can also stimulate the growth of hair which can later be used for a hair transplant in Turkey;
  •           the PRP method which is useful not only in male patients but also in women;
  •           scalp micropigmentation is one of the newest technologies used to recreate a natural hairline;
  •           transplant of hair from different body parts is often used in men with insufficient donor hair density.

Candidates for hair transplants can benefit from these services in our hair transplant clinic in Istanbul.

Men who have insufficient donor hair density have options to achieve their desired results. Our team will be able to provide you with complete information about the techniques that can be used in your case. However, when hair density is an issue, it is possible that the patient will need more procedures. This also means that the price for hair transplant in Turkey will be higher, compared to a case in which only one procedure would have been used.

Medication as an alternative to hair transplants

After consulting a male patient with insufficient donor hair density, our surgeons in Istanbul can recommend buying certain medication which helps the patient grow back the missing hair. It is important to know that is best to purchase hair growth medicines only after being consulted by a dermatologist who can make the right recommendations.

Laser therapy for patients suffering from hair loss

Another faster alternative is laser therapy which will stimulate the growth of healthy hair follicles. This is a new version of the laser light comb which was proved to provide very good results in patients who suffer from severe hair loss.

PRP as a hair transplant alternative in Turkey

The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) method implies the centrifugation of the patient’s blood until the plasma is separated from the blood cells. The plasma is then injected in the areas with problems, and thus stimulating new hair follicles to grow.

Scalp micropigmentation

For patients with severe hair loss, scalp micropigmentation can represent the best option. This implies tattooing the scalp in areas with missing hair. It is also one of the most cost-effective alternatives
to a hair transplant in Turkey.

Body hair transplant in Turkey

Men with insufficient donor hair density can be good candidates for a hair transplant when the donor area is represented by other parts of the body. The chest and the back are usually the best body parts for a hair transplant.
