DrT Hair Transplant clinic and the results of their hair transplant surgeries.

The whole process was very easy, stress free and professional. I definitely feel like I made the right decision selecting Get Hair - Dr Tayfun. I’m really happy, positive about a great result and would highly recommend to anyone considering the procedure.


I must be honest and say I am absolutely delighted with the service I received. I honestly cannot fault a single thing. I would 100% recommend this clinic. It is the complete package of support, surgery and yes care. I really feel they care about the service they provide.


Everything was very well organised starting with the driver who picked me up from the airport, the accommodation and ultimately the surgery led by Dr. T and his team. I'd like to address special thanks to Nasimi and Stuart for excellent coordination and for providing clear instructions (pre- and post- op). Also Dr. T and his team were very friendly and caring.


The whole experience was really smooth. I am so pleased with the initial results (writing this 2 weeks post op) Dr Tayfun and his team performed my procedure, and they were very professional throughout. Communication throughout was spot on aswell! I'm so excited to see the final results!!


I sincerely appreciate the artistic and surgical skills of Dr Tayfun and the Nurses when I saw the post-surgery results of the implants. They did follow the standard best practice of not over-harvesting in one session. Post-operative care was also commendable the next day visit, post-operative care presentation & kit, airport drop and consultation thereafter. I would strongly recommend Dr Tayfun and GetHair for the great work they are doing for these may years and the expertise they carry by doing tons and tons of procedures. Regards,

Just over 12 months now since my transplant and i couldn't be happier with the results and the whole process with Get Hair. I constantly receive positive feedback, especially by barbers who have told me its the best they have seen! I cannot thank Kaan, Dr Tayfun and all the staff in Istanbul for the unbelievable care and attention they have shown to me from the minute i enquired to 12 months after.


I went to Istanbul and there was a driver waiting for me in the airport. He drove me to the hotel. Hotel stay was very comfortable with friendly staff. The day of the surgery the driver took me to the hospital. The team of Dr. Tayfun was very professional and caring. They explained me every procedure that they were doing. It was done under local anesthesia. Some times it was uncomfortable but tolerable. It took about four and a half hours to complete it. Then they took me back to the hotel. The next day they took me back to the hospital and washed my hair. After that they gave me detailed explanation about after care with booklet. Then in the afternoon I flew back to UK.


On the day of the procedure one of their drivers picked me up after breakfast and brought to the medical centre. It was very modern and exceptionally clean. I met Dr Tayfun who is incredibly knowledgeable and he drew my new hairline – I was so excited to see this. The morning went very smoothly and his entire team are amazing, so friendly and approachable. I felt I was in very good hands at all times. I was even offered chocolates throughout the procedure and given lunch! Just after lunch I was picked up and brought back to my hotel to rest for the afternoon. The following day I returned to the clinic to have my bandages removed and have my 1st hair wash. Nasimi was very thorough and went through the whole aftercare with me, he was so informative and allowed me to ask any questions I had. I was even given a booklet detailing what I had to do in the following 14 days along with shampoo and a lotion to apply. I cannot fault Dr Tayfun and his team, I have had an excellent experience and will definitely be recommending them to any of my friends and family who require this treatment.


I'm from the UK and was skeptical about travelling abroad for a hair transplant. After several consultations at home and with companies from Turkey, it was clear there is much more value for money in Turkey, and that it was very common for people to travel for the procedure. I then began researching companies and Dr Tayfun's clinic came out on top. After paying my deposit, a representative was in constant e-mail contact with the next steps and what to expect. I felt confident that I would be looked after once I landed in Istanbul. And that's exactly what happened. The driver was waiting for me at an agreed spot in Arrivals. It was explained to me what would happen next, and I was taken to my hotel to get a good night's sleep ahead of the procedure. The hotel was nice and clean, the staff were friendly and breakfast was included.


First of all I want to thank Zak for always be ready to answer my questions and quick to send replay. Dr.Tayfun and his team are very skilled and professional. The operation went well and was done before I knew so now it is just to wait and see the new hair grow 🙂 I give Gethair and Dr. Tayfun my best recommendation.


A fantastic experience from start to finish. Dr Tayfun’s team is very professional. The 2 nights in Turkey were hassle free with a lovely hotel and all transfers taken care of. All questions I had prior to the surgery were answered immediately and now having had the surgery I am excited for the results. I cannot recommend DrT enough.

I started conducting research in 2016 when began to lose my hair. I had consultations with many leading hair surgeons here in US. Each time I was not overly impressed with the final results of their patients. For me, money was not the issue. I wanted to feel comfortable and impressed with the results. I decided to go with Dr Tayfun. On the day of procedure Dr Tayfun looked at hairline, explained procedure and how many grafts expected to get which he said 3000 and the report was only 2900, I ended up with 3150. The bottom line is I would 100% recommend DrT. Traveling abroad for any procedure has it’s risks because it’s away from what we know. But don’t be put off.

FUE and FUT are two different methods for hair transplant. FUE is the newer method in the field while FUT is one of the first versions of hair transplant. These two techniques are totally different than each other. FUT is a surgical operation where the skin with hair from the donor area surgically removed as stripes. This method has some major setbacks. It leaves a linear scar in the donor area, the healing process is more painful and around a month. Also, FUT allows less hair grafts to be transplanted since it cannot use the donor area efficiently. On the other hand, FUE surgeries are lot faster, the healing process is shorter and relatively painless. It allows us to use the donor area efficiently and transplant more grafts.



Manuel FUE is managed by hand and  it contains inside a cylindirical blade with a diameter of less than 1mm, the diameter of the ends of punches varies between 0.6-1.00 mm.
Follicular units are removed manually from the skin by turning. In manual FUE, as well as in micro motorized FUE,

According to the length of the follicular units the punch depth is determined manually and the follicular units are collected by hand one by one. It is possibile to extract 1500-2000 follicular  units. It may be considered to remain less scar on the donor area after extraction when it is compared with micro motorized FUE. But so far there is no medical  evidence to prove this.

The possibility of damaging to the follicular units is low because of the minimize speed rotation of the punchs. But at this point there is no any medical work or evidence.



Micro motor is a tool  also called as FUE engine.  As the name suggests this tool which contains a small motor inside is an electrical device with it’s special ends. Micro motor tool has different sizes ends, the diameters of these ends can range between 0,6-0,9 mm depending on the patient’s skin and hair.

The ends of the micro motor penetrates into skin by spinning during the extraction of follicular units and allows the extraction of follicular units easily. Punch depth is determined manually according to the length of the follicular unit.

The sessions generally takes less time. Because with micro motor tool the procedure is done more quickly.ıt is possible to extract 4000 grafts follicular units a day and they are collected manually. Because of the importance of rotational speed of punch it may be considered to be damaging to the donor area. But this is not true when is realized by an expert.
