My hair started falling out when I was 19. It kept getting worse. Every day I looked in the mirror and I was ashamed of my coves. I prefer to wear a cap. When I was twenty-four, I took the plunge, I wanted a hair transplant. Then my search process started for the provider that best suited my needs. Because it is so common to go to Turkey for a hair transplant, this is also my choice. I was well guided in the Netherlands, but the moment I actually left for Turkey, I was left to my own devices. On the treatment day, the attending physician and the team did not speak a word of English, which was not a pleasant experience for me at all. I also experienced a lot of pain, especially with the anaesthetic. The worst thing about the treatment was that I was just a number. There was absolutely no personal approach but mass production. At this point I knew there was another way.
The result may be there, but mistakes have also been made. For example, multi grafts have been used for my hairline, this does not give a natural look at all. Also, no high density has been achieved. My before and after photos show a clear difference and I am absolutely very happy with this. I have never regretted having a hair transplant at an early age, now I can enjoy it longer. Fortunately, the mistakes that have been made can be corrected. For the recovery treatment I go to Doctor Taner Karahan.
From my own experience I know what it’s like to start this process. Our priorities are honest, personal and transparent. We do everything we can to give a very personal approach and take the time. It is absolutely not a mass production with us.
I look forward to guiding you through the search process or the actual hair transplant!
Dr Taner Karahan
My name is Taner Karahan and I am born in Izmir, Turkey. I studied at the Gulhane Medical Faculty and graduated in 2004. From then on, I worked as an Emergency Room doctor for seven years in Izmir and Alanya. At the end of my Emergency doctor carrier I was looking for something else.
The last nine years I have been concentrating on hair transplantation procedures. It is an area which is very open to new developments and it made me excited that we see the significant results in an early stage. Nothing makes me happier then seeing a patient pleased with their result. Because I’m in contact with the patient until the last check-up I also get to experience their process. The best days are when I can see a patient getting their confidence back.
I like the way Hair Clinic Wolf treats people, because for us it’s really important that you feel relaxed. Therefore I take all the time you need. It’s also possible to have a video or phone call with me before you decide to go to Turkey for a hair transplant. That way I can explain the way we work and you can tell me all your wishes and expectations. Together we will decide what will give the best result. Sometimes expectations can be unrealistic or you might be unsuitable for a hair transplant. In that case we will always be honest with you and explain the reasons, and suggest other options.
My team and I are specialized in DHI, a fantastic technique which we allows a high density result. Additionally, we perform FUE. When you have an intake with Arco or Lieselotte, they will take pictures of the top of your head and send them to me. Then I will explain to you or them which technique will give the best result and how many grafts you need.
My focus is quality, quality, quality. I don’t make concessions to save on time. I will always go for the best results and maintain a personal approach. If you have any questions, you can always ask me. I’m looking forward to meet and help you!
Greetings Taner Karahan
When Arco underwent his hair transplant, I followed this closely. As an outsider you experience the transplant in a different way, but I also had my points for improvement. When you have something about yourself changed, the most important thing is that you are put at ease at all times, that there is no doubt and that you always know who to turn to for any questions. I also think that you should not be left to your own devices. That’s why we always stay in touch with you, from start to finish.
By coming into contact with Taner, we know that there is also a different quality and focus. All three of us stand for a personal, honest and transparent approach. For example, we think it is important that you can meet the attending physician in advance. You can still have such a good and pleasant conversation with one of us as an advisor, only Taner is the one who will carry out the hair transplant. We think it is important that you also feel good at Taner.
Do you have questions? I look forward to answering these for you. On to a full head of hair!

Hair transplant at Hair Clinic Wolf
Hair transplants are much more common today than they were a few years ago. Surgeons can now also guarantee the quality of a treatment to a high degree. Everyone can enjoy a full head of hair again!
Today, most hair transplant surgeons work in Istanbul, where lower rates are charged. Because the costs for such treatment are usually not reimbursed, it is logical from a quality and cost perspective to undergo a hair transplant in Turkey. After all, it is only a three-hour flight from Schiphol.
Hair Clinic Wolf specializes in facilitating this process, with medical professionals who are passionate about their profession!

Very well organized from start to finish! Lieselotte personally came to my home to explain the entire procedure surrounding the hair transplant in Istanbul. I was walked through each specific step (visually) and was able to ask the necessary questions.
In Istanbul, everything was well organized; at the airport I was picked up by a driver and dropped off at the hotel which was otherwise fine (the hotel was clean, the staff helpful, and the food fine).
The next day I was driven to the university hospital for treatment. The doctor, Taner, received me there kindly and spoke very good English. The hairline was drawn and slightly corrected at my request. Although I had some doubts at first whether the hairline would look ‘natural’ enough, luckily this turned out to be the case afterwards. Taner also said that this may have been the most important criterion for him for the hair transplant. After drawing the hairline, some specialists removed the hairs from the donor area. The planting of the hairs was performed by Taner and another experienced specialist. The entire treatment was painless thanks to the anaesthetic, but it was quite a long session (~8 hours). The younger specialists spoke Turkish to each other at that time, which makes sense, but because you don’t understand it, in combination with the long seat, it was somewhat tiring for me.
After the treatment, the driver took me back to the hotel and both Taner and Lieselotte checked regularly via the app over the next few days how I was doing. After three days and a PCR test at the hotel, the driver took me back to the airport in the direction of Amsterdam. The recovery is now going well at home. Sleeping with the neck pillow is not ideal, but I don’t think there is much that can be done about that. We will have to wait and see what the result will be in the near future, but I have every confidence in it!
After having intake interviews at Dutch clinics, I came into contact with Lieselotte from Simson’s Hair (later Hair Clinic Wolf). It felt very good and familiar from the first moment. I got extensive information and I was immediately out. At Simson’s hair I went to do the hair transplant.
I have had contact with Lieselotte at least 30 times about anything and everything, all my questions were patiently answered.
July 30 I went to Turkey with a friend. From the beginning to the end I experienced the involvement and expertise of Lieselotte and the team in Turkey. The doctor Dr. Taner once again explained how the day would go and drew the hairline in consultation with me. My girlfriend was also involved and informed. The anesthetic was not pleasant, but I did not feel any pain at all. A long day, with lunch in between.
Hotel was very neat with very friendly staff and a nice spacious room. The food was good too. August 2 ablution and we were taken back to the airport. Even at home I still feel the involvement. I am so enthusiastic about Simson’s hair that I wish it on everyone who is thinking about a hair transplant.
Had a hair transplant a month ago through simson’s hair (later Hair Clinic Wolf). The intake with Lieselotte went very well and the contact afterwards was also great. There was a lot of contact and I could always ask questions.
All transport and facilities were super arranged and prepared, both in the Netherlands and Turkey. This includes instructions, taxi, hotel, etc. The treatment itself, led by Taner, went very well. Again clear instructions and put at ease (good English) and hardly had any pain. A month later, no problems at all and looking very good! Highly recommended for everyone!!
On the advice of via , and after already hearing a positive experience, I decided to go to this clinic myself and it was more than worth it.
Super good guidance, personal follow-up process and the Doctor himself and the team were very friendly and walk you through the treatment. Aftercare is still very involved and you can always reach someone if you have any questions or concerns. You will be taken care of before, during and after the treatment!
On December 11, 2020 a hair transplant was done at simsons hair, later Hair Clinic Wolf. From the consultation to the aftercare, everything was perfectly arranged. Lieselotte knows what she is talking about and is clear and honest, the doctor in Turkey (Dr Taner) and his team are very friendly and work professionally. Now 7 months later and more than satisfied with the recovery and the process. Definitely recommended if you are looking for an honest and professional clinic for a hair transplant.

Top service. From transport in Turkey to English-speaking guidance in the clinic, everything is arranged down to the last detail. In particular, big compliments for the possibility of easily accessible contact with Lieselotte. I could go to her with all my questions and so I never felt insecure for a moment. Highly recommended!
