WHAT IS HAIR TRANSPLANTATION?

Nowdays hair loss experienced by many people regardless of men or women, affects people to such an extent that it damages their self-confidence and creates problems in their social lives. Because hair directly affects the general appearance of people, transplantation was developed to solve these problems and has achieved its purpose in a very short time.

It is normal to shed between 50 and 100 strands of hair per day. If there is hair loss in numbers above these, an expert should be consulted. Hair loss can be reduced or prevented by various hair treatments such as laser and PRP. However  hair transplantation is performed as a permanent solution for people who have experienced intense hair loss.

A hair transplant is a procedure in which a plastic or dermatological surgeon moves hair to a bald area of the head. The surgeon usually moves hair from the back or side of the head to the front or top of the head.

THE MAIN STAGES OF HAIR TRANSPLANT

Hair transplantation operation is performed in three phases;

 

COLLECTION OF HAIR FOLLICLES

After the donor area has been prepared for the procedure, the hair follicles are collected individually with the FUE motor. In the meantime, it is very important that the follicles are not damaged. Each of these follicles, called grafts, contains an average of 2-3 hairs.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

PLANTING THE FOLLICLES TO THE OPENED CHANNELS

The follicles collected at the previous stage are placed one by one at 40-45 degrees angles to the opened channels and the hair transplantation operation is completed.

 

 

THE OPENING OF THE CHANNELS

The opening of the channels at the correct size and depth according to the region of the transplanted hair affects the output rate. Hair follicle size and length should be checked carefully to open the appropriate channel. The angle of the channel should be well adjusted to achieve the most natural appearance.

TECHNIQUES USED IN HAIR TRANSPLANT

and Today, the following hair transplantation methods are successfully applied. Each method is specially chosen according to the patient’s needs and demands.

 

ROBOTIC HAIR SURGERY

In this method, hair follicles are collected by the hair cultivation robot. The follicles collected after the channels are opened with the hair transplantation robot are planted manually.

 

 

DHI HAIR TRANSPLANTATION

In this method, which is also called direct hair transplantation, the procedure of opening and transplanting the channels using the medical pencil named Choi is performed at the same time. The hair follicles to be planted will remain in an outside environment for a shorter period of time and is more likely to remain a healthy graft.

 

 

SAPPHIRE FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT

In this method, a special sapphire-tip pen is used instead of metal slit during the channel opening phase. What makes the method different are these Sapphire tips that allow smaller micro-channels to be opened, thereby speeding up the healing process and reducing crusting.

 

 

NORMAL FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT

The follicles of the hair collected and separated using the micro-motor and are planted to the channels opened manually.
