Hair Transplant “What is Hair Transplantation?”


Hair transplantation is the most clear and permanent solution for hair loss.

We can also call the hair transplant operation as “micro-surgical practice performed within the healthcare institution”. Microsurgery operation. In hair transplantation, it is used to mean hair transplantation has less interventions than a normal operation.

One of the most basic problems of today is hair loss. Although baldness caused by hair loss seems to be unique to men in general, it is also seen in women at an increasing rate.

In a daily basis 50 to 100 hair strand loss is considered normal. If there is hair loss above these digits, you should consult a specialist. There are various treatments such as hair laser, PRP, mesotherapy, autologous micrograft to prevent hair loss. Although hair loss can be partially reduced by these treatments, the most clear and natural and permanent solution for people who have experienced intense hair loss is hair transplantation.

Hair transplantation is a procedure in which the hair roots in the nape region of the patients head  are collected and implanted in the channels that are opened in the areas that are balded or sparse.

The hair on the nape is a spare part of our body, not only with the heroism of the transplanting team, but as its completely creation feature. It is one of the bodily miracles of human beings that it does not fall out and its roots are alive for life. As the hair transplantation team, the most important thing we do is to take the hair follicles that have this feature from the nape of the head and move them to the balded and sparse regions.

All the following hair transplantation techniques are successfully applied in our clinic. It is determined according to the joint decision of the doctor and the patient.

1- Normal FUE hair transplantation

The hair roots which are separated and collected with the help of micro-motors, are implanted manually in the channels that are opened. It is the most common method used.

2- DHI (unshaven) hair transplantation

This method is also called direct hair transplantation. In this hair transplant method, the channel is opened by using a medical pen named choi and the transplantation process is performed at the same time.

Hair roots to be implanted will stay in the external environment for a much shorter period of time to remain healthy.

3- Sapphire FUE hair transplantation

The obvious difference in this technique is the use of a sapphire-tipped pen instead of a metal slit during the opening phase of the channel.

The main factor that makes the method different is the opening of smaller micro channels through sapphire ends, thus speeding up the healing process and reducing the scabbing.

Day. 2 (Control):

The patient who comes to the clinic is checked to see if there is a risk of infection, injury or bleeding in the roots that are newly implanted. The bandage placed on the donor area is removed. Especially for patients who come from abroad and have a limited time, the first wash can be done on the second day.

Day. 3 (First Wash):
