How is Hair Transplantation Performed?

In hair transplant operations, firstly, a specialist should examine the person. In the examination, doctors determine the amount of hair loss and the number of hair follicles to be planted. The new hair follicles are called “Grafts”. “Donor region” is the region from where specialists take hair follicles. The regions of the neck and back of the ear are the most intense donor regions of the grafts. If there are not enough grafts in these regions, specialists can take it from other regions with high-quality hair roots such as breast, arm, and back.

Before starting the operation, the person is anesthetized with local anesthesia or Sedation. Firstly, doctors take determined grafts in a special solution. Then, they plant them one by one in the area to be transplanted. Specialists should do the transplantation by taking into account the direction and angle of the other hair follicles. In this way, the planted hair is the most natural appearance. The duration of hair transplantation depends on the amount of hair follicle to be sown. In cases where hair loss is high, specialists can perform more than one hair transplantation operation. After hair transplantation, doctors attach a special band-like bandage to protect the donor area. We can remove this bandage at the end of the third day. The person is discharged a few hours after the operation and returns to his daily life.

Hair Transplant Methods

Furthermore, hair transplantation which is one of the most preferred medical aesthetic applications, specialists can be made it with different methods according to the needs of the person with the development of technology. Hair structure of the person and the amount of grafts to be planted are the main reasons that determine the method to be used. In recent years, the most frequently preferred application is the “Unshaved hair transplantation” method, which allows it to be adapted to daily life immediately.

1. Unshaved Hair Transplantation

Unshaved hair transplantation technique is the most preferred method for people who do not want to shave their hair for operation. No cutting or hair scraping is performed during transplantation. In this way, the person can return immediately to the daily life after hair transplantation. If the area to be sown is small, the hair transplantation specialist will choose this method. In addition, hair transplantation can be closed with hair in the region and the difference in the appearance can be prevented.

2. FUE Technique

FUE technique is one of the most recently developed hair transplantation methods with the advancement of technology. Specialists use micro-motor-needled devices in FUE technique. And they take grafts one by one, without cutting the donor area. The grafts removed during the procedure will be at maximum quality so that they do not need to be kept in solution. This will shorten the planting time. In addition, since there is no cutting in the donor area, no permanent traces occur after hair transplantation.

3. Long Hair Technique

In long hair method, the specialists take the grafts and transplant them without shaving. The hair roots taken using the FUE technique are sown without shaving. As a result of the hair transplantation, the hair in the region of the plant and the head will be all the same size. Long hair technique with no trace of hair transplantation will not occur, can return to daily life immediately. In addition, it is the most preferred method for women who will have hair transplantation because of the absence of the planting area and the fact that the hair stays longer. Long hair technique is the longest hair transplantation method. Removing the hair and graft without shaving will prolong the procedure. In some cases, hair transplantation takes place in 2 sessions.

4. DHI Hair Transplantation

The DHI hair transplantation method is performed without any incision and suture process. DHI hair transplantation method does not perform grooving. “Choi Pen” device specially developed for hair transplantation, is used. With the Choi pen, specialists pick up each hair follicle and transport it one by one. In this way, the direction and frequency of each hair strand can be easily adjusted. New sutured hair after DHI hair transplantation will have the most natural appearance.

5. Hair Transplantation with PRP Therapy

PRP treatment is aimed at strengthening the hair after hair transplant. After hair transplantation, hair that we will plant with PRP treatment will grow in a shorter time and will be bright and bushy. In the treatment of PRP, doctors take a person's own blood and separate it in a laboratory. Doctors inject the resulting plasma fluid into the hair follicles. In this way, vitamins, minerals and keratin are transferred to the healthy development of hair.
