PRP and fat transfer; Two different treatment methods applied to improve hair quality and increase the likelihood of successful hair transplantation.

In recent years, it has been discussed and investigated whether the combination of PRP and fat transfer can have a synergistic effect in improving hair quality . The results obtained so far are very promising.

Autologous Fat Transfer
Benefits of PRP Treatment
There are many different methods and approaches used in the treatment of hair loss. Although hair transplantation is the only option for cases where hair loss becomes permanent, it cannot guarantee that there will be no hair loss problem afterwards. Although there is no risk of loss of the transplanted hair, other hairs may continue to fall out in the future. The purpose of applications such as PRP and autologous fat transfer is to slow down this process as much as possible; to increase the durability of both transplanted hair and existing hair.
