Thanks to the developing technology and medical innovations, innovations are also implemented in the hair transplant sector. Hair transplantation, which has been applied for many years and offers a solution to baldness, has shown significant developments from the past to the present. The number of applications in the world, especially in our country, has been increasing gradually, and the hair transplantation process gives much more successful results thanks to the developments made in recent years. Thanks to new methods and equipment, the success rate has increased to 90-95%.
Different methods are applied in the hair transplantation sector. Thanks to this diversity, the most accurate method is applied according to the needs of the patient and permanent, natural hair is achieved. Basically, there are 2 different methods of application in hair transplantation methods. FUT and FUE techniques are the other methods developed and applied based on the principle of FUE hair transplantation.
Fut Hair Transplant Method
It is the oldest method applied among hair transplantation techniques. The FUT method was first developed in the 1950s and started to be applied after the 1990s. Today, this method is not applied due to scarring.
FUT is a surgical procedure and a scar remains after the application. The process is the process of taking the hair follicles from the donor area as a strip and transferring them to the bald area. In this method, which is an incision procedure, local anesthesia is applied. The process generally takes between 4-8 hours.
Fue Hair Transplant Method
The FUE method is the most applied hair transplant method developed after the FUT method. This new method developed has been applied since the 2000s. The success rate of the FUE hair transplant method is very high and very natural results are achieved.
The first step in the FUE hair transplant method is to shave the hair, so that the area to be transplanted and the area where the hair follicle will be taken can be seen more easily. In the FUE method, the donor area, the nape-resistant region, is generally selected.
After shaving, local anesthesia is applied so that the patient does not feel any pain during the procedure.
After local anesthesia, hair follicles are started to be collected from the donor area with the help of special microsurgical instruments and the hair follicles are protected and separated into roots in a special section.
After the hair follicle collection process, channels are opened in the appropriate size and angles to the area to be transplanted. Carefully collected hair follicles are placed in these opened channels.
Fue Hair Transplant Method Features
FUE hair transplantation method is a very effective and successful method. It has many features and some remarkable features are;
- In the hair transplantation method, the hair follicles are divided into 1, 2 or 3 roots and an average of 2000 to 5000 hair follicles can be transplanted.
- It is a method that does not damage the scalp and leaves no traces. The risk of infection is very low as the bleeding rate is low thanks to the surgical equipment used.
- Since the channels opened are small, the recovery time is shorter and the return to social life is shorter.
- A special sapphire-tipped device is used during the procedure, so that the channels opened are smaller and the recovery time is shortened.
- There are different types of applications based on the FUE hair transplant method. These are manual punch and micromotor applications.
Manual Stapler Fue Application
A pen-like device called puch is used in manual staple FUE hair transplantation. Thanks to the needles at the tip, the hair follicles are loosened from their place. This device is not a machine and it is called manual because it is controlled by hand. Displaced hair follicles are collected with tweezers-like micropence.
Dexterity is very important in this application and it is a time-consuming application because it is manual. Due to the recent developments, this application has been replaced by the micromotor application.
Micromotor application, which is a new and advanced application, is the name given to a special device. Thanks to these micromotors, which make things easier for doctors after manual stapler, the process is easier and takes a short time.
There is a special needle at the end of the micromotors with electrically adjustable speed. With the help of this needle, the hair follicles are displaced and collected with the help of micropens. The collected hair follicles are protected in a special container and the hair follicles are placed after the canal opening process.
Dhı Hair Transplant Method
DHI hair transplantation, which is among the newest hair transplantation methods, is among the most remarkable methods in recent times. The most striking feature is that it is not necessary to shave for hair transplantation, so female patients who experience hair loss can now have hair transplantation.
Although it is basically based on the FUE principle, it is a very different method in terms of application and devices used.
A special medical pen called choi is used in the DHI hair transplant method. Local anesthesia is applied before the procedure so that no pain is felt during the procedure. Special pen from the donor area after local anesthesia With the help of hair follicles begins to be collected. Another difference in the method is that there is no channel opening stage, the collected hair follicles are placed with the help of the same pen, applying light pressure to the area to be transplanted, and the transplantation process is completed. The process takes 8-10 hours on average and very successful results are obtained.
Stem Cell Supported Hair Transplantation Method
Stem cell therapy is used in many areas in the health sector today. In recent years, the success rate of hair transplantation is increasing day by day thanks to stem cell therapy, which has given successful results in hair and skin treatments.
In stem cell hair transplantation, cell-rich oils are injected under the scalp, so that the roots are nourished after the hair transplantation process, and they hold on more easily and come out healthy.
Stem cell supported hair transplantation is applied simultaneously with the classical hair transplantation method and the stem cell is taken from the patient himself. The separated stem cells are used during hair transplantation and support the success of hair transplantation. After the onset of hair loss and baldness, the fat tissue in the head area melts over time, so the fat tissue lost with stem cell therapy is replaced.
