Caginer Hospital - Overview

Caginer Health Services was founded in 1995 by Dr. Unsal Caginer and Caginer Hospital has been operating since its establishment in 1999.

The hospital is located in the heart of the Asian side of Istanbul, minutes away from ferries, subway and train stations. Experienced physicians served more than 20,000 patients in 2016, of which 400 were international patients from all over the world.

The hospital has always invested for research and development and adopting the latest technology to ensure that our patients have access to the best medical care. Additionally, they have made it their mission to ensure that the services are respectful of patients’ rights, regardless of religion, language, race and gender, by implementing ethical values throughout the whole hospital. Evidence of this is the fact that they offer therapeutic practises as well as preventative health studies.


Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery repairs deformities and restores function to physical anomalies. Caginer offers both aesthetic and plastic surgery. Aesthetic surgery, also known as cosmetic surgery, is focused on enhancing a patient’s appearance. A common example of this type of surgery is breast augmentation. Alternatively, plastic surgery, or reconstructive surgery, is aimed at reconstructing physical defects, often due to birth disorders, trauma, burns or severe injuries. A common example of this surgery is burn repair surgery.

Hair Transplant

Hair transplant operations have been successfully conducted for about 50 years. Furthermore, this operation has seen significant improvement over the past 5 years, largely thanks to the ability to collect and transplant individual hair roots.

Hair transplants can be done at any time of the year, however some experts recommend that they are conducted in Autumn months to protect the newly transplanted hair from extreme weather. 
There are currently 2 different methods of conducting hair transplant operations: FUT and FUE.

FUE Hair Extraction (Follicular Unit Extraction)

This method involves collecting hair from the nape and transplanting it to the areas of hair loss.

PRP Application

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is Platelet Enriched Plasma. In this procedure, the patient’s own blood is processed and the specimens which are rich in efficient platelets is separated. Platelets have rich healing and restorative properties.

The purpose of injecting the platelet rich material into the hair roots is to stimulate the stem cells and speed up the renewal and repair of cells in hair roots. Newly introduced cells increase collagen synthesis and the tissue heals rapidly.

This treatment helps repair hair quickly and help it regain its vitality and strength. This treatment can be applied 1-2 times a year.

Hair Mesotherapy

This method was first applied in France and has become widely adopted around the world. It has been approved by the World Health Organization.

The aim of this procedure is to strengthen hair roots that have been lost or damaged. This process will strengthen the damaged hair follicles, helping to keep the hair alive and voluminous.

Hair mesotherapy uses a special drug mixture that is based on the individual needs and hair structure of each patient. First, hair roots are opened by the help of a special steam. Subsequently, the mixture is placed in a device known as an injector or gun. This drug mixture is injected equally into the hair follicles at regular intervals. Finally, the skin that still contains hair follicles maintains the applied drug mixture in the roots through the application of a special oil massage. This allows the medicine to stay in the roots.

On average, this process is conducted over 6-10 sessions.

Preoperative Processes
Before the operation, the hair transplant area and the patient’s current medical condition in terms of previous surgeries, medicine - alcohol - caffeine use, smoking, the existing diseases, should be carefully examined and evaluated by the medical expert and the team.

Operation Procedure

The operation can be performed with or without anesthesia. The FUE method takes about 6-8 hours depending on the hair roots required. Cleanliness and sterile conditions of the hair transplant clinic, professional expertise and success rate of the hair transplant team are the factors of patient choice and approval.

In the follow-up examination, 1 week after the hair transplant, the specialist will provide you some explanations. On the 20th-25th day after the hair transplant, there will be some hair shedding. New hair will start growing approximately in 3 months after hair shedding. This cycle lasts for about a year and at the end of one year the transplanted area will be covered by newly grown hair.
