Hair transplantation can be defined as ‘the permanent solution for hair loss’. A hair transplant operation can be expressed as; a microsurgical procedure that is performed in a hospital surgical setting. The concept ‘microsurgical operation’ implies that; a hair transplant procedure will be carried out with minimal surgical intervention unlike traditional surgery.
Hair transplantation is the process of removing hair follicles from the appropriate parts of the body and transferring them to the place where the head has an opening. Hair transplantation is a type of tissue transplant. In the current technology, the hair follicles are taken one by one and after the end of the reception process, the channels where the hair will be placed are opened with the side slit method and then the follicles are placed in these channels.
With this system, a 100% natural appearance is achieved and the person undergoes a much more comfortable surgical procedure. Hair transplantation is performed with local anesthesia. The day after the hair transplant, the person can return to normal work and social life.
FUE Hair Transplant OperationHair transplants have come a long, long way since the early days, being performed with techniques that are practised today worldwide. Hair transplants conducted with the FUT technique during the nineties, has been replaced by the FUE method which was developed in the early 2000s and introduced in 2005. Even though the technique has been in continuous development with some further refinement, the basic principles of FUE remain the same. Today, the technique continues to be regarded as the gold standard of hair transplant surgery.
Hair Transplantation Techniques
Classic FUE (via micro motors)
DHI technique (FUE performed with Choi implanters)
Sapphire FUE (FUE performed with Sapphire blades)
As an example, a FUE hair transplant that is performed with sapphire blades, which has been introduced recently, delivers more successful outcomes. This generally is because the incisions created by utilizing blades that are made from smooth sapphire crystals, heals faster and leaves only a barely visible scar.
