Lately, hair transplantation for men is on the rise among other cosmetic surgeries. And it is not wrong to say that Turkey leads the field when it comes to hair transplants. So, if you suffer from hair loss, you are likely to visit hair transplant doctors in Istanbul. Yet, even if you show some signs of balding, it is better to diagnose the male pattern baldness before undergoing hair transplant surgery. ASMED is one of the most professional surgical medical centers that focus on hair transplant in Istanbul.
At ASMED, we use the Norwood scale to classify the stage of male pattern baldness. There are seven different stages, and knowing at which stage a patient helps doctors determine how many grafts will be needed for the treatment. In this article, we will be examining the details of the hair transplant at Norwood 3.
NNorwood scale starts from stage 1 and goes up to stage 7. In each stage, the amount of hair loss and the areas change. Type 3 is the stage when a man starts to notice the hair loss. The hairline usually takes an M shape. The baldness is visible in the front and corners of the scalp. In some cases, the hairline can also resemble a U or V shape. In that case, does Norwood 3 mean balding? Obviously, this is an alarm bell for you to take some action. Still, with the proper treatment, you can stop balding and even regrow hair on bald spots.
At ASMED Surgical Center, Dr. Koray Erdogan, a leading expert in the field of FUE hair transplant, successfully treats hair loss at Norwood 3.
Follicular unit extraction is a technique of extracting hair grafts from the donor area of the scalp to transplant them into the recipient (hair loss) area.
While applying the manual FUE procedure, we use our own original technique called “Dilek-Erdogan Sequential - DES Technique” a ASMED since manual FUE is the best option to get good quality grafts. The tools called punches are used during the follicular unit extraction process. At the end of the treatment, there will be no permanent scars.

The needed amount of hair grafts depends on the transplanted area and the case. In general, the numbers change between 1500 to 4000 for a 3rd stage patient. Hair follicles are used to cover the front and corners. Please check the previous FUE hair transplant operations that have performed at ASMED: Norwood 3 Hair Transplant Result
The aim of FUE hair transplant is to get long lasting results. The hair follicles are transplanted into thinning areas to continue growing during a person’s life. Yet, please keep in mind that the transplanted follicles are your natural hair, so in time depending on age and other factors, they can get thinner like the rest of your hair.
