Hair transplant has become one of the most popular solutions for people suffering from extreme hair loss and baldness. Various factors such as hereditary background, age, and medication may cause you to lose your hair rapidly. FUE technique is generally recommended to solve severe hair losses such as a case that needs 7000 grafts hair transplant. The real challenge you will be facing while planning your hair transplant journey is deciding on how many hair grafts you need to achieve a head full of hair. To decide on such a critical subject, first, you need to understand what the Norwood scale is.
Am I eligible for a 7000 grafts hair transplant?
7000 grafts hair transplant is the solution of severe male type hair loss and baldness. Generally, healthy Norwood stage 7 patients who has a dense and healthy donor area are eligible for the operation. However, it’s generally hard to qualify for a 7000 grafts hair transplant surgery as Stage 7 patients have thinned donor area along with severe hair loss. You can always reach our medical consultants to ask whether you are eligible or not for your 7000 grafts hair transplant in Turkey.

Which procedure is the best for 7000 grafts hair transplant?
Our hair transplant surgeons achieve the best results by using FUE technique to implant 7000 grafts. The steps are below:
1 – Your surgeons will start by shaving the donor area and applying local anaesthesia for maximum comfort.
2 – The hair grafts are extracted from the donor area using the manual punch technique or a punch tool. As the hair grafts are extracted, they will be collected in a cold environment that elongates their viability outside of the body. This technology is called Ice FUE, and it is extremely important for achieving successful hair transplant results.
3 – Once the hair grafts are collected, your surgeon will create micro-channels in the target area to plant the extracted hair grafts. The hair grafts will be individually placed in these microchannels by paying attention to the angle and direction to create the most natural look.
4 – Your surgeon will clean and bandage up the necessary areas once the transplantation process is complete.
What is the cost of 7000 grafts hair transplant in Turkey?
Having a 7000 grafts transplanted can be more expensive than 3000 grafts and 5000 grafts hair transplantations. The need for multiple sessions, more qualified staff members and longer operation processes increase the cost of 7000 grafts hair transplant. However, you can get this operation done in Turkey at affordable prices. Thanks to the popularity of health tourism and the high numbers of hair transplant experts in Turkey, the cost of hair transplant operations is much lower than in many other countries. At Heva Clinic, you can get the highest quality and the best results at an affordable price.
The cost of 7000 grafts hair transplant in Turkey usually varies between $2,000-3,500.
How many sessions do I need for a 7000 grafts hair transplant?
There is a limit to the number of hair grafts that successfully be transplanted in a single session. This is because as the number of extracted hair grafts increases ensuring the graft viability becomes harder. Furthermore, extracting high numbers of hair grafts from the donor area can cause damage to adjacent follicular units. That’s why at Heva Clinic we use Sapphire Ice FUE method to elongate the life of the extracted grafts.
This is why multiple sessions are recommended for a 7000 grafts hair transplant to protect the donor area and extracted sufficient number of healthy hair grafts. Usually, two separate sessions are suitable for the 7000 grafts hair transplant procedure. However, your surgeon can better advise on how many sessions you would need based on your specific condition.
Is it recommended?
7000 grafts hair transplant is generally the total capacity of an average donor area, so the patient should be fully eligible and their expectations must be realistic. Even though hair transplant technologies improved dramatically and success rates are pretty high, the operation is highly recommended to divide into two sessions to minimise the risk. Please consult our surgeons for more detailed information and analysis of your specific condition.
How long does the operation take?
An average hair transplant session can take up to 6-8 hours depending on the number of hair grafts that will be transplanted. This number is the highest when it comes to 7000 grafts hair transplant; so you might expect about 8 hours operation. If you are having multiple hair transplant sessions, you will need to wait for 10-12 months between the first and second transplant sessions. This waiting period is necessary to be able to observe the effects of the first hair transplant and to allow the transplanted hair grafts to settle in so that they won’t get damaged during the second transplant session.

Frequently asked questions
The Norwood scale or the Hamilton-Norwood scale is a hair loss classification scale used by surgeons to classify the commonly observed male pattern baldness processes. Because male pattern baldness usually follows the same path for most men, it is possible to classify its significant stages. The Norwood scale typically contains nine stages. These stages are organised to reflect the severity of hair loss. The Norwood scale starts from stage 1 which indicates no significant hair loss and progresses all the way up to Norwood class A. The complete list of stages are as follows:
