There are many known causes of hair loss. Genetic predisposition, aging, hormonal changes, accidents and burns related to the hairy area are some of them. The way to regain hair is through a surgical procedure called hair transplantation or hair transplantation. Hair transplantation is the process of taking the hair from the more common areas in the form of a graft and placing it in the missing areas as often as possible. Scalp grafts are skin segments containing 1,2 or 3 hair follicles. This process is called FUE for short.
Before the operation, detailed examination and photo shoot are done. Hair transplantation is usually performed under hospital conditions with local anesthesia. Grafts taken one by one from the area where the hair between the two ears are densely placed are meticulously placed on the spilled areas. No sutures are made during the operation. Healing is completed in about a week. The transplanted hair falls out in about 3 weeks and then starts to grow again. There is no shedding in these newly grown hairs.
It is necessary to make a special effort to create a natural front line during hair transplantation and to avoid any visible scars in the area where the grafts are taken. During the placement of hair follicles, naturalness is tried to be gained by planting parallel to the existing roots. In addition, removing the hair follicles one by one prevents leaving a clear scar in the nape area. FUE method is preferred more frequently because of these advantages.
Hair transplantation can be applied to men and women of all ages who do not have a medical disability to undergo surgery. It is preferable to stop hair loss before hair transplantation is performed. Hair transplantation is not recommended during periods of rapid shedding. If the area to be transplanted is large, it may not always be possible to fill the entire balding area with a single operation. A second session may be required.
The hair transplant procedure has no known significant risks. Bleeding and infection are very rare. A 2% loss after transplantation is considered normal. In other words, 98% of the transplanted hair is permanent. New hair can be dyed, gelled and cut to the desired length.
