Dr. Utkan’s Work Speaks for Itself 👇

“People you just met will never understand you had a hair transplant”

Is a cheap Turkish hair transplant worth the risk?

⚠️ You may earn more money, but you won’t gain additional donor hair, a finite resource, or a new scalp.

Experience Dr. Utkan’s Expertise in Fine Donor Area Work

How does Utkan Kızıltaç manage your donor area?

Too small punch grafts with multiple hairs are amputated.
Too big, hypopigmented pinpoint scars are left.

He determines the optimal punch size and shape for you by considering:

✅ Hair shaft diameter and caliber
✅ Single, double, and triple grafts ratio
✅ Bald skin atrophy levels
✅ Skin thickness and fat

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

After doing a lot of research into a HT in turkey, I settled on unitedcareclinic with Dr Utkan. It’s always a risk flying overseas to an unknown medical system. Suffice to say, I am thoroughly impressed and satisfied with unitedcare clinic.

In the days after, one tends to meet others at the airport or restaurants who have gone through the same journey in Turkey, and there is a bond that brings us together to share experiences. I realised that not all experiences were the same, and it made me appreciate unitedcare all that more.”

“I would definitely recommend UnitedCare if you are looking for a hair transplant. My experience was very positive and with help of the pre-operation instructions, I felt prepared.

What stood out for me when choosing UnitedCare was the emphasis on 1 patient a day, indicating a small but involved team, the medical background of Dr. Utkan and the transparency on the website. Also the mentioning of a natural hairline being the main goal helped me in the decision making process.”

“Dr. Utkan is an extremely knowledgeable doctor. I noticed how honest and genuine he was when I had my initial discussion with him.

If anyone out there is nervous about going to Turkey for a hair transplant, let me put your fears to rest. It was a more than perfect experience with no complications or discrepancies.

Do not get ripped off by the over priced clinics in your country. I would have paid about $35000 in Canada to receive a similar procedure. United Care was the right choice!

Frequently Asked Questions

Dermatosurgeon Utkan Kızıltaç is known for his high-quality hair transplant procedures, backed by extensive knowledge and surgical skills. While his expertise minimizes the risk of complications.

Hair Transplantation began as dermatologic surgery, and there is only one medical training branch related to hair loss: dermatology.

A dermatosurgeon knows 3000+ skin/scalp diseases and conditions can find the root cause of your hair loss, and can handle complications during/after the surgery.

Also, a dermatosurgeon can achieve a very low amputation rate and a high graft survival rate since he knows the hair morphology of different ethnicities.

Finally, their personalized holistic treatment plans can prevent short/long-term hair transplant failures.

The chief physician of UnitedCare treated more than 50.000 patients in his career with 1000+ hair transplants (recorded in government database). He has a 99% success rate in achieving the predefined goals established before the surgery.

It is 4,816 USD for 4500 grafts (2022 numbers).

In 2022, for 4500 grafts:

Canada: 31,500 USD

The United States: 24,498 USD

The United Kingdom: 14,490 USD

Low labor costs, lost cost of living, devaluated currency.

  • 85 million people live in Turkey and healthcare is affordable for everyone.
  • A total of 1.700.000 tourists come to Turkey for health tourism annually.
  • Turkey is in the gateway between the east (Asia) and west (Europe)
  • Turkish Government heavily invests in top schools of medicine and healthcare infrastructure.

  • All of these results in experienced physicians conducting top-notch operations in Turkey.

Physical trauma and blood flow are the most critical factors affecting graft survival and grafts wait about 5 days to be reconnected to the blood supply again in a hair transplant.

Without these solutions, 10 to 20% of grafts may die even after a flawless surgery. The solutions provide grafts the best medium for survival, recovery, and growth.

No, they don’t. They are quite expensive products. Even most famous surgeons & clinics don’t want a cost increase.

Operation Day

The chauffeur gets the patient from the hotel and brings him/her to the hospital for the 6-10 hours of hair restoration operation.

The surgeon waits for the patient at the hospital for the pre-op examination.

Pre-Op Examination

In the morning, the driver takes the patient to the clinic.

In the meeting with the doctor in the pre-op consultation, the patient expresses his/her wishes and expectations.

The doctor examines the hair and scalp condition and asks questions to get more information about your family genetics, medical history, habits, and lifestyle for personalized treatment.

With the dermatoscope, tricoscopic examination is done to get telogen and miniaturization rates. This check gives a clear idea about donor hair quality and amount.

We just don't plan to cover bald spots on the scalp, but:

  • Determine the severity of Androgenic Alopecia
  • Figure out how AGA would advance
  • Identifying high-risk balding zones in the next 2-3 years.
  • Cosmetic appearance with respect to head shape

Only an experienced dermatologist surgeon can do this kind of long-term planning.

Dermatoscope telogen and miniaturization check

The doctor makes the required calculations for optimum coverage. A precise number of grafts planned to be transplanted is determined at this point. We don't overharvest or deplete your donor area but provide you with the best coverage possible.

In the calculation, a 360-degree scanning system is used.

It assesses a patient’s head and hair and outputs 3-D scalp modeling and some crucial data, including:

  • Each hair’s shaft diameter and caliber
  • Hair density in the donor area
  • The total donor capacity
  • The coverage value
  • The number of grafts extracted in previous hair transplant surgeries.


So, your precious and limited donor hairs are used wisely to cover your bald or thinning zones.

KE-Bot Mobile 3D Scanning System Output
KE-Bot Mobile 3D Single Output

An average person has 120-200 hairs per square cm2, and generally, 1 root has more than a single hair. Therefore, there is no direct relationship between graft count and hair density.

Then, the patient is informed about your scalp condition, hair quality and density, and donor/recipient areas. As a result of this step, the patient is advised of

  • The unique hair density and quality
  • The proper integrated treatment
  • Expected results and operational forecast

Drawing the Perfect Hairline

The doctor will draw the hairline using a laser-assisted hairline device to set the perfect symmetry between the left and right sides.

Your wishes and surgeons' artistic abilities will define the desired hairline, considering:

  • Forehead muscles
  • Face and Bone Structure
  • Ethnicity
  • Age
  • Balding Severity
  • Donor Capacity

When the patient approves the hairline, the team moves on to the next step.

Execution

You are accompanied to the operation room, and the team assists you in settling on the surgical chair.

Disinfection

The scalp is disinfected with Baticon to prevent any infection.

Haircut / Unshaven Transplant

If the patient wants unshaven hair transplantation with the Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) technique, hairs are not cut.

Otherwise, the patient gets his haircut.

Local Anesthesia / Sedation by Anesthesiologist

Standard needle-free local anesthesia or sedation (by an anesthesiologist) is done concerning the patient's choice.

The patient has a comfortable operation after the anesthesia starts to take effect. Some patients even sleep afterwards.

Follicle Extraction (2-3 hours)

The smallest possible motorized micro punch is used to release hair roots. 

The key here is finding the smallest diameter punch, which gives minor damage to the donor area and results in the lowest transection rate.

Transection is the amputation of single or multiple hair follicles. Transection rate is % of follicles that are transected during the operation.

The rate depends on the experience of the operator. The least skilled one can have a transection rate between 20-50%, meaning almost half of the precious and limited grafts are amputated.

Some clinics use bigger punches to extract grafts to reduce the transection rate without decreasing the surgery speed (speed is essential for "hair mill" clinics), extending the healing period, and leaving scars.

Our clinics' transection rate is 1-2%, and we extract 98-99% of grafts without damaging them with the tiniest diameter motorized punches.

Also, homogeneous graft extraction is essential. Otherwise, the density in some parts won't match other regions, and overharvesting may occur in some zones.

Picking the right hairs from the donor zone requires surgical knowledge and experience. The purpose is to ensure the same density of hair to achieve a natural look.

Graft Storage with Intracellular Solutions

Extracted follicles are placed in a petri dish.

In Petri dishes, special solutions are used to store grafts.

In a hair transplant, live hairs are taken out of the body and left without glucose and oxygen. 

And they are exposed to external pressure forcing cells to use energy sources to counterbalance to remain intact.

Even if they are implanted very soon, they are not connected to blood vessels for days. So they are susceptible.

Most clinics make graft storage mistakes: They use extracellular storage solutions such as saline or ringer's lactate and lower the temperature to 4°C, which puts a lot of pressure on live cells.

At UnitedCare, we use intracellular solutions, helping cells stay alive for days outside the body. They increase graft survival rates significantly. 

The mix we use to store grafts is the perfect combination of custodial and other solutions.

Grafts are classified based on hair strand counts to achieve the most natural result.

  • Single hairs are used to draw the frontal hairline. 
  • Doubles and triples are implanted further back.


Lunch Break

After the graft extraction and storage phase, there is time for lunch. The patient is provided with the catered food of the hospital.

The patient is advised to tell any food allergies.

After lunch, the final implantation stage starts.

Implantation (2-4 hours)

This time, local anesthesia is applied (if you haven't chosen sedation by the anesthesiologist to recipient zones that are generally hairline and crown.

Extraction and graft storage phases are the same for Sapphire FUE and DHI. However, their implantation stages are different.

Sapphire FUE

Compared to DHI, more grafts can be implanted with this technique. 

In regular FUE, cheaper steel blades/scalpels are used to make incisions/cuts, which causes more tissue trauma. In Sapphire FUE, sapphire blades made from expensive gemstones are used. Sapphire blades are known for their sharpness, smoothness, and durability.

Therefore, the Sapphire tip causes fewer wounds in the incision stage (it is used to open micro-channels). Thus, it results in less trauma, swelling, bleeding, pain, and a faster recovery period and increases the likelihood of success compared to the regular FUE.

At UnitedCare, we don't perform regular FUE.

The micro-incision stage is crucial and where expertise and experience come into play. The transplanted hairs' angle, depth, and density depend on the incision quality.

The FUE technique is better for patients with severe baldness.

In a single session, up to 5000 grafts can be transplanted.

Sapphire FUE Incisions
FUE Incisions

DHI (Direct Hair Implantation)

Direct Hair Implantation differs from FUE in the implantation stage. In this method, a special implanter pen is used to simultaneously open channels and implant grafts.

The operator can easily control the implant's angle, direction, and depth using the special pen.

Increased precision makes this technique appealing, even if it is more expensive than FUE.

In addition, the DHI technique has a faster recovery period and can be performed with less bleeding than the FUE method. 

However, it is a more advanced technique and requires more experience.

Up to 3500 grafts can be transplanted in a single session since the surgeon does all graft placements.

Some clinics assert that they can transplant hairs with DHI as much as with FUE.

If any clinics say so, it means 2 or more technicians implant grafts to different areas with different DHI pens simultaneously, which is quite dangerous since the patient has 2 different implant styles, resulting in an unnatural look. The eye can easily detect this difference at first glance.

In addition, unshaven hair transplantation is easier with DHI, and better density can be achieved without harming existing hairs.

Injections

Utilizing the power of your blood is crucial for the success of the restoration surgery.

Besides being used in graft storage solutions, a form of regenerative medicine is injected right after a hair transplant to make your hair thicker, stronger, and healthier.

Post-op Meeting

Then, the surgeon explains surgery details, graft count, coverage, etc.

The necessary dressing is done. The donor area is covered with a gauze bandage with an antibiotic cream.

Crucial post-op instructions are described to the patient: what to pay attention to, how to sleep, medication usage, etc.

Grafts are susceptible at this point and need good care.

The patient is provided with a box containing shampoos, post-op spray, and medications.

The Day After the Surgery

The patient is brought to the clinic with VIP transfer again.

The operation team removes the patient's bandages, and the surgeon examines the donor and recipient zones.

Then, the first hair wash is done carefully under the doctor's supervision.

Finally, the patient leaves the clinic and has a chance to enjoy Istanbul.

Airport Transfer and Departure

After the rest day, The patient is transported to the airport to fly home.

Post-op Checks

After 1st, 3rd, 6th, 9th, 12th, and 18th months, the specialist will reach you to check your healing progress. Photos are asked, and the surgeon reviews them. 

The patient becomes a member of the UnitedCare family and can always reach us to ask anything they wants.

Doctor's Note

Out of 650.000 hair transplants annually, 32.000 fails because 99% of them are performed without doctor involvement.

On average, 800 to 1200 grafts die in a 4000 graft hair transplant due to the malpractice.

Yes - while it’s cheaper than ever to get a hair transplant, it’s harder than ever to get a good result.

Most patients coming to Turkey face 3 challenges:

  1. Not being able to see the so-called famous hair transplant doctor of a hair mill (The doctor allocates only 3 minutes to each patient, so what services do you actually pay for?)
  2. Having the surgical parts done by a non-medical or technician (who doesn’t follow the literature and doesn’t know the best practices. And the worst of all, they can’t deal with serious complications).
  3. Finding a respondent from a clinic after paying the money and having the surgery done. (A patient is left alone with unofficial, invalid warranty certificates).

That’s why I founded UnitedCare - to provide the best possible service with integrity and transparency concerning Hippocratic Oath.

In the last 11 years, I helped over 1000+ people regain their self-confidence and youthful energy.

I’d gladly and sincerely help you if you’re interested in hair restoration procedures.
