Dr. Mehmet Erdogan’s Unique Way Of Doing Hair Transplant

Dr. Mehmet Erdogan believes planning to be the most crucial step. It includes planning the donor, hairline design, and determining whether the patient’s facial features will provide a natural aesthetic result.  Each technique for hair, beard, eyebrow, and female hair transplantation has its own set of indications. So Dr. Erdogan does not believe that a single technique can be used for all cases. This approach is combined with diligent calculations of the facial shape and contours.

He plans a hairline with respect to age, as aging is a natural process. It also makes his transplantation suitable for the patient as they grow older. Dr. Erdogan discusses the pros and cons of the procedure, which allows his patients to make informed decisions. At Smile Hair Clinic, his team leverages micro and macro disorders for natural-looking results, facilitating the frontal-temporal transition.
