Hair Transplantation is the transfer of hair follicles taken from the donor (nape) area, where the hair is heavy, to the areas with hair loss. Hair transplantation is the only way for individuals with severe hair loss to regain their hair permanently. Hair transplant operation is a preferred permanent procedure especially because it gives natural and healthy hair results. In this application, the grafts taken from the donor area, which are genetically coded not to fall out, are also used in transplantations to the hair, eyebrow, beard and mustache area.

Hair Transplantation Methods

Currently, there are two recognized hair transplant removal methods known as FUT and FUE.

In the formula known as FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation), a strip of hair is removed from the nape. Then the hair separated into roots is transferred to the area where the planting will be done. In this method, which is older than FUE, scars may remain in the area where the hair is removed, and a discontinuous numbness and loss of sensation may occur. With the development of technology and the widespread use of the FUE method, the FUT method has become an application that is not recommended and preferred by professionals.

In FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction), which is known as the most preferred and most effective system in hair transplant operations today, the hair follicles in the donor area are taken one by one, not as a block, unlike the FUT method, and replanted one by one in the area to be transplanted. This process is carried out using a micromotor.

FUE hair transplantation, performed while the patient is under local anesthesia, goes through the following stages:

First of all, the area where the roots to be used in the planting process will be taken is shaved so that the hair is very short.

Grafts (hair clumps) are taken from the donor area with millimetric surgical devices called manual punch or micromotor.

The grafts taken are placed in a container with a nutritious liquid in order to be protected. Grafts, in terms of convenience and accuracy in the transplantation process; they are divided into clusters containing single, double or several roots.

Hair Transplant Methods

1-Channel Method

Although it is generally described as sowing with the FUE technique; The FUE formula is only a method of intake. Before sowing, channels are opened in the area to be planted with a lateral slit. It is valuable that the opened channels are as thin as the thickness of the hair to be transplanted. Hair follicles are placed in the opened channels with the help of forceps. It is a formula that should not be preferred in terms of the naturalness and density of the transplanted hair, and it has many disadvantages.

2-DHI Way (Pen Method)

DHI technique; It is known as the implanter pen technique or the pen technique. DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) hair transplantation method, as the name suggests, is a system of direct transplantation of hair grafts without making any space beforehand. It is the way we prefer, it is used by few hair transplant centers in the world. It requires high experience. It is also the latest technological method used for now.

Advantages of the DHI method (pencil method):

1-The latest technology used in the world

2- Since the hair pencil used in this method is thinner-tipped, very frequent hair transplantation can be done, up to 120 roots per cm², and it allows a more dense hair structure.

3- Due to the thin and special structure of the hair pencil, which we call the implanter, the ability to give sides is higher. For this reason, you can get completely natural-looking hair.

4-As in the classical canal system, there is no need to prepare canals in the planting area. In this way, it gives the opportunity to transfer new roots without damaging your existing hair.

In 5-DHI hair transplantation, since direct transplantation is performed without opening a channel, bleeding is not seen in the hair transplantation area and the smoothing process is much faster compared to root canal transplantation.

6- Since no liquid is injected under the skin after the operation, swelling and pain are not felt.

7- Since the channels are not opened on the skin in the sowing area, it is a way without the risk of infection.

Post-hair transplant process:

Our patients wonder how long it will take for the transplanted area to become beautiful after multiple hair transplants and whether they will feel pain during the operation. Since local anesthesia is applied in the hair transplant operation, the patient does not feel pain or pain.

After hair transplantation, there may be a thin crust on the scalp, this is a normal process. The resulting crusting gets better within 10 days by washing the transplanted hair regularly every day in the form shown by the doctor.

Your transplanted hair will start to shed after 1 month. This is called shock shedding. At the end of the 3rd month, the transplanted hair starts to grow slowly, and at the end of 9 months, in a period of close to 1 year, the person gains a new image with the new hair transplanted.

What Should Be Considered in Hair Transplantation?

One of the most valuable stages of hair transplantation is to ensure that the hair follicles are not damaged while being taken. Therefore, this process should be carried out in a fully equipped and hygienic hospital with an expert and experienced team.

It is much more difficult to compensate for the defects that may occur in hair transplantation after the transplantation process itself. Since the hair transplant operation is a permanent operation, one should be very selective in all matters during the hair transplant process and the hospital where the operation will be performed should be investigated very appropriately. This personal situation should definitely be taken seriously and the best doctor-hospital combination should always be the most valuable criterion.

The hair transplant process may seem like an aesthetic operation in general, but it is a process where important medical techniques are applied and a sterile environment is highly required. This process should be done at the same time, by a doctor who is specialized in this field, with technological equipment. If the opposite is experienced, the results will not be as desired and it may be necessary to face consequences that may threaten health. At this point, there are rules clearly determined by the Ministry of Health and every hair transplant patient should have the operation performed in the centers where these rules are applied.
