A recent video filmed at a medical facility in Turkey captures him exuding positivity and happiness.

Initially scheduled for the transplant earlier, Jamal had to postpone it due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“I’m here for my second session, which will be the final one,” he said.

“Best Dr. in the world ranked for hair transplant… Soon he will be in Kenya and Africa. Anasema nimtafutie mtu Kenya nifanye connection ama?” Jimal delightfully ended as he shared photos in the cosmetic clinic.

Hair transplant procedures in Turkey are highly cost-effective.

The procedure in Turkey is between $1,500(sh 193,080.00) and $7,000 (sh901,040.00), including all expenses for accommodation and transportation.

This, however, depends on the country one is traveling from.

A hair transplant is a procedure that moves hair from one part of the head to another; the idea is to take hairs from an area with good hair growth and transplant them to an area with thinner hair or balding.

How does a hair transplant work?

The patient is placed under local anesthetic before one of two different ways of transplanting is carried out: either follicular unit transplantation, also known as FUT or strip method, or follicular unit extraction aka FUE.

According to the NHS website, FUT involves taking strips of skin with hairs growing on them from the back and sides of the head and grafting them into tiny incisions in the scalp.

The FUE method – popular with celebrities – requires the whole head to be shaved before individual hairs are removed one by one by robots and transplanted into bits of the head that have thinning hair or baldness.

After six months, the newly transplanted hair should become visible, and by 12 to 18 months, the full effects of the hair transplant can be seen.
