Smile Hair Clinic | Hair Transplant In Turkey: more details about the clinic

Turkey, Istanbul

Smile Hair Clinic is re-located to the financial district of East Istanbul and continues its operation in its 10-floor, elegantly designed, high–tech clinic building where a team of 100+ well-trained staff is working. The quality and excellence of hair transplantation operations performed at Smile depend on intensive training procedures. Every team member at Smile is well-trained and tested by TrueTM Philosophy success criteria.

Founders' top priority consists of three critical components:

  1. aesthetics — an extremely natural-looking hair is one of the top pursuits at the operations;
  2. the ultimate comfort of the patient during and after the operation;
  3. the total transformation of the patient in the long run.

Approach & Techniques

The aesthetics is sustained by up-to-date scientific advancements. Extraction of correct grafts from the donor area is the first and key step in the techniques. True Planning helps determine the exact number of grafts needed and select them carefully and avoid over-harvesting. A common myth in transplantation is that extracting a higher number of grafts from donor areas does means that the operation will result in success, the Smile Hair team believes that's wrong. The key principle at Smile Hair is planning the ability to select the correct grafts from the donor area in the first place. True Planning also allows securing that your donor area stays resourceful if you need another transplantation operation in the long run. At our extraction process, we always monitor the fractal rates to ensure that extracted graft is high quality and healthy.

Another key step is planning the transplantation area, by arranging single, double, and triple grafts to sustain the natural and thick look. In the light of scientific studies, it's unnecessary to transplant high numbers in specific areas. Therefore, planning correct angles, and planting correct grafts to certain areas is much more effective than just trying to transplant the high number of grafts.

Considering that every patient has a different type of facial structure and different colored skin, it's essential to conduct planning concerning the patient's facial features.

At this step, the parameters of the canals are essential for success. These parameters are direction, angle, and the depth of the canal. These parameters should be in harmony with patients' existing hair. Determining the correct depth of the canal results in healthy growing new hair.

Hair transplantation surgery is all about sustaining a natural look, transitions, and correct shadows. Local experts combine this art with scientific physics and mathematics.

Highest Grade Medical Operation Standards

Smile Hair Clinic stands for the patient's benefit first, therefore Smile never promises surrealistic results in advance and never creates an unreachable expectation.

Smile Hair Clinic practitioners are there to understand the expectation of the patient and find out solutions in the best way possible and be ready for all possible complications.

TrueTM Philosophy

Smile Hair Clinic has disciplined its way of performing hair transplantation around the TRUE Philosophy, which consists of three elements which are the three main values of the brand. When the founders were first established Smile back then, their driving values were Analysis, Accomplishment, and Advancement. They believed that those values help them become the region's most recognized hair transplantation clinic. Not long after, in the light of those values, Smile Hair Clinic introduced its way of doing and its philosophy as a hair transplantation standard.

TrueTM Philosophy consists of four key aspects:

True Planning

At Smile, it always starts with analysis. True Planning technique enlightens the way to achieve natural-looking transplantation results. Examining the data before making a decision is a key step in hair transplantation. So that, Smile recognizes patient's inputs and strives to make the maximum.

At the True Planning step, our doctors examine the donor area in de. Smile believes that defining the most appropriate numbers of grafts for the patient's need depends on the doctor's capability and gusto in designing hair. After donor area examination, the transplantation area is being planned under the prior examination data.

Then the hairline is drawn with the help of special tools which ensure optimal and natural results.

True Hair Line Design

We believe that hairline design is key for natural-looking hair transplantation results. The True Hair Line Design procedures prioritize single hair follicular units to be positioned on the front lines to maintain aesthetic proportions and look. The front-line drawing considers angles to grow hair in a natural-looking way, sustaining the masculinity of the hairline. This approach is combined with sensitive calculations of the facial proportions. Designing a hairline concerning age is another critical factor, aging is a natural process so natural-looking hair transplantation should be in harmony with the patient's age.

True Execution

The operation day is the key milestone for a successful result in the whole transformation process. To sustain it, Smile recruits, trains, and manages highly skilled medical experts controlled by the criteria of ISHRS.

True Innovation

Smile medical experts and medical consultants are always searching to find more effective ways to perform the most effective hair transplant operations. Having the Sapphire Transplantation technique as a must-have for all operations is one the brightest manifestation of True Innovation.

All team members at Smile Hair Clinic are trained following TrueTM Philosophy and regularly tested by its success criteria. All three elements of True Philosophy ensure that all the processes at Smile are controlled and run by higher standards than the industry authorities required.
