When performing a hair transplant, hair follicles are removed from the area with sufficient hair growth (back of the head, chest, etc.) and there are implanted into a bald area that needs treatment. There are two main hair transplant techniques that can be used: FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction).
Although both techniques can give satisfactory results, your Hair Transplant specialist will choose the best option that suits your individual needs and expectations.
Hair transplant is a broad specialty and as such, encompasses a wide range of procedures.
You're an ideal candidate for hair transplant treatment if you suffer from male pattern baldness, have sufficient donor hair, and have lost hair due to trauma, burns, or cosmetic procedures.
Depending on how many hair grafts you need, the procedure might take 4 - 8 hours to complete. During the treatment, your doctor will advise you on a few ways to help you pass the time, like reading a book or bringing a companion to keep you company.
Potential sides effects that you could experience after hair implant surgery include:
There are a few different methods for hair transplant; your doctor will suggest the best approach depending on your condition and your expected results. The most common techniques:
FUE Hair Transplant – is a minimally invasive method in which your hair follicles are harvested using a special micro punch from the donor to the receiving area while you are under local anesthesia.
FUT Hair Transplant – your surgeon will remove a strip of hair from the back of your head (the donor area). Your surgeon will then create incisions on the recipient area where the follicular graft units will be inserted.
DHI Hair Transplant – your surgeon will extract the hair follicles from the donor area using a specially designed instrument with a diameter of 1mm or less. No holes or slits are needed. The extracted hair follicles are implanted directly into the recipient area using an implant tool.
Sapphire Hair Transplant – is similar to the FUE technique but slightly modified. Your surgeon will use sapphire blades instead of steel blades. The sapphire blades are more robust, enabling the surgeon to achieve more density, leading to a natural appearance.
Affordability isn't the only reason Turkey is known for the best hair transplant clinics.
