Although an Afro hair transplant is a difficult operation its not impossible and very successful results are obtained in Turkey. Because afro hair type is very thick and curly, they experience hair loss more frequently. Thight protective hair styles and hair relaxing with chemicals are a common cause for hair follicles to weaken and can cause the hair to shedd.
People with afro hair type try to relax their hair using chemical hair straighteners but these methods can damage the health of the hair foliclle. If such products are used for a long period of time, they can cause permanent damage to the hair roots. Permanent hair loss can occur not only as a result of genetics but also by physical outside causes.
Afro hair transplant is the only treatment available for those with afro or curly hair. The angular placement of each graft is also different compared to the regular hair transplatntation methods. People who carry afro hair type genes can face dificulties beacuse of some common hair diseases which can lead to hair loss or extreme thining of the hair stand and roots.
One of the most critical factors in Afro hair transplant operation is curly hair type analysis.
According to the results of the analysis, doctors should consider many factors such as the planting angle and the patients scalp condition. Another very important factor during the consultation period is determining the number of grafts based on the needs of the patient. For afro hair type another step that shouldnt be overlooked is the correct analysis of the hair type since in curlier hair types the follicles can be more on the curlier side too which means the corect technique beeing used during the plantation is cruicial to achieve the best and healthiest results.
Performing the operation according to the type and structure of the hair plays a major role in the quality of the transplant and on the results. The thick and curly structure of hair follicles provides more protection than other hair structures.
Afro hair usually has specific textures with tighter, finer and ringier curls, so this type of hair requires a very specific approach. Afro hair tends to be dry by nature. Despite the physical differences, Afro-textured hair is biochemically the same as all hair types.
Due to the curly nature of hair, it is very important to place the grafts at the right angle. In afro hair, it is important to follow the natural angle of the existing hair to create a natural look.
Due to its nature of the hairs structure, Afro hair type can be different compared to Caucasian and Asian hair type. The structure of the curly hair changes not only the hair strands itself, but also the shape of the hair root. When the curly roots are removed from the donor area and placed in the recipient area, the scar on the skin will be larger. Afro hair transplant operation is performed in our IstanbulVita Medicana hair transplant center with the right technique and by doctors who specialize in afro hair transplantation.
There are two techniques that can be applied in afro hair transplant. FUE technique and Sapphire FUE technique are used in afro hair transplant. In the FUE technique, it involves the specialist doctor collecting the grafts from the donor area with the help of a punch tool. Then, the collected grafts are placed into the follicle beds opened by the doctors. In these techniques, the aim is to have a natural appearance with less scarring.
The opposite of this method, in the FUT technique, involves removing a strip of skin from the donor area, usually from the back of the head. This technique leaves a distinct scar on the scalp. Afro hair is difficult to remove without damage. Due to the scarring and slower healing time that this procedure brings, this technique is not preferred and not applied in IstanbulVita Medicana hair transplant center.
When one has darker toned skin it makes it more prone to scarring. This situation must be considered by the surgeon prior to the procedure and proper care must be taken during planting. With the right technique and the right care, positive results can be achieved in afro hair transplant.
Afro hair transplant is the most complex of all hair transplant procedures. Due to the natural curling of the hair follicle, this must be done by experts to perform a successful operation. The doctors at our Istanbul Vita hair transplant center are experts in their fields and experienced in hair transplantation.
In order to achieve successful results after hair transplant, it is very important to follow the after operative instructions.
Before the Afro hair transplant, our specialist doctors perform detailed analyzes to understand the structure of the hair and determine the required number of grafts accordingly. Afro hair transplant operation should be performed with a high level of knowledge and experience about the characteristics of afro hair.
The process of afro hair transplant operation is more difficult than other operations because the structure of such hair makes the hair transplant process difficult. Additional care should be taken in matters such as graft transplantation and post-operative care. Therefore, the analysis phase is very important. Our expert team performs the operation with high quality materials.
The hospital where the operation was performed has modern technical equipment and infrastructure. Our experts determine the method required to provide the best density and most natural look, and the pricing process varies accordingly.

The curly nature of Afro hair makes the growth process slow. The biggest reason for this is that the length is masked by the shape of the hair. After afro hair transplant operation, your hair will start to grow and you will be able to see a distinct difference in appearance after 1 year.
The curly structure changes the root shape of the grafts. The structure created affects both the hair root and the root under the skin. The benefits of a successful hair transplant are the same for everyone. As mentioned earlier, afro hair can look thicker than other hair types. This is related to the structure of the hair.
