Hair transplant Turkey for black males

That being said, an Afro hair transplant in Turkey is performed using just the same hair restoration techniques—with some specific modifications—as a Caucasian hair transplant procedure

The curliness in black males makes follicular unit extraction (FUE) a difficult technique—which sometimes leads to the employment of follicular unit transplantation (FUT) method if FUE proves too difficult to extract the hair follicles.

Some patients with Afro hair can experience a problem with healing, called Keloid formation, in which large thick scars can form even after a minor skin wound. This problem may occur in Black patients who had FUT hair transplantation.

Afro-Caribbean hair transplant

Afro-Caribbean hair is typically curlier than that of Caucasian hair. This poses some specific challenges because the curl occurs under the skin, which makes it difficult to use follicular unit extraction. The hair graft of the curl is larger and can't be packed in. For this reason, many hair surgeons avoid FUE and switch to the older strip method, which is known to have a longer recovery time.

Our hair restoration experts have had resounding success with Afro-Caribbean hair transplants in Turkey using FUE and other hair transplant techniques to create naturally-looking results on patients of all races and ethnicities, including Afro-Caribbean.
