What is Hair Transplant?
Hair transplant is the operation of transplanting hair follicles taken from a hairy area of patients who experience hair loss over time, using the microsurgical method.
Why is Hair Transplant Done?
Many men and some women experience hair loss in later ages due to genetic factors, stress and trauma. This situation causes a loss of self-confidence, as self-confidence creates an unaesthetic appearance in individuals.
Hair transplant surgery ensures hair growth in this balding area by transplanting hair follicles taken from a hairy donor area of the patient to the balding area. As a result of this operation, which should be performed in accordance with the natural hairline of the head, the patient gains a hairy appearance and an increase in self-confidence is observed.
Hair Transplant Techniques
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Technique:
Since 2002, people and centers that practice the FUE technique have developed due to the interest it has received. Local anesthesia is used in FUE operation. The area to be transplanted is determined and how many grafts are needed is determined. Approximately 25-30 roots per square centimeter are planned to be planted by determining the area suitable for harvesting from the nape area above the ears. The entire area is numbed with fine needles. Diameter 0.6mm. with 1 mm. With micro punches that work by rotating with a micro motor varying between
The released follicles are taken out of the scalp with micro forceps (small medical tweezers, tongs). There are 1-2, rarely 3 hair follicles in each piece removed. Grafts are classified according to the number of hairs they contain. After taking an average of 2-4 hours, a short break is given. After the area where hair transplantation is required is anesthetized, small holes are opened where the hair follicles will be placed. The grafts are placed in the channels opened with micro forceps. The wrap covering the nape area is made.
FUE Technique Advantages
FUE Technique hair transplant operation is performed with local anesthesia.
Only the stem cell to be taken is studied, tissue is not taken from the area where the hair follicles are taken.
Hair follicles are also taken from the upper part of the ears. It is not taken only from the nape area.
In the FUE technique, where recovery is observed in a short time, hair follicles are taken one by one with a special micromotor.
Between 8000-12.000 hair strands can be transplanted in a single session.
A very good result is obtained in light and moderate hair loss (from the front to the top of the head).
It does not leave any stitches or scars.
A natural-looking result is obtained.
Mustache, Beard and Eyebrow transplantation can also be done with the FUE method. You can click here to have information about Mustache, Beard and Eyebrow transplantation procedures.
Burns or scars on the scalp can be closed.
It is suitable for both women and men.
You can return to your daily life after the operation.
DHI (Direct Hair Implant) Technique
DHI Hair Transplantation (Direct Hair Implant) is the transplantation process by placing the hairs to be transplanted into the needle at the tip of the special hair transplant pens (Hair Pen/Choi) and by giving the desired direction under the skin in the area to be transplanted, without touching the hand.
There is no need for stitches, scars and incisions in the hair transplantation process performed with the DHI Hair Transplantation technique. For the hair follicles (grafts) taken from the donor area, no holes are made in the areas to be transplanted and the grafts are directly planted painlessly and painlessly with the special tips used. The fact that no holes are drilled in the area to be planted causes an increase in the number of roots that can be planted and more intensive planting, and also ensures that the healing process is faster. It takes more time and is more laborious than the FUE technique.
Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation
Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation is a new application that emerged as a result of studies aimed at increasing the success of hair transplantation with the FUE method. Grooving operations with sapphire (sapphire blade) tipped tools provide a much more effective and operationally comfortable operation. According to the steel tools used in other hair transplantation methods; It provides micro-level processing and creates much less tissue damage.
FUE is known for its natural-looking results. Sapphire FUE, on the other hand, went one step further. Thanks to the adaptability of the sapphire blade, the surgeon can produce more precise and precise micro channels. The transplanted follicular units can then be placed at natural angles and directions, resulting in a more flawless overall appearance.
Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation starts with hair analysis as in other FUE method. The quality of the hair, the roots, the area to be transplanted, the hairline and the donor area are determined. Then, the donor area is locally anesthetized and graft removal is started. Graft removal is very important and a mistake can cause damage to the tissues. Therefore, it is very important to minimize tissue loss thanks to the blades that do not lose their sharpness in Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation.
The grafts taken are carefully planted in the area to be planted one by one. After the end of October
