Turkey is among the most successful countries in the hair transplant sector. Men and women who want to have a hair transplant can get permanent and natural hair, especially by choosing Istanbul hair transplant centers.
What Causes Hair Loss?
Hair loss in men is a process that usually begins after puberty. Genetic predisposition is among the main causes of hair loss and baldness in men. Diseases, wrong drug use, unbalanced diet, cosmetic errors, stress and environmental factors are other factors that cause hair loss. The loss of all hair in the crown area in men is called male pattern hair loss.
Hair loss problem is also frequently experienced in women. Factors such as pregnancy, menopause, hormone balance, menstrual irregularity, stress cause hair loss. Male pattern hair loss is rare in women. However, women with a genetic predisposition also experience baldness. The use of wrong cosmetic products in women, heat treatments such as blow dryers and hair dye also cause hair loss.
To Whom Can Hair Transplantation Be Applied?
Hair transplantation can be applied to men and women who have male pattern hair loss and hair thinning problems.
Since hair transplantation is performed under local anesthesia, the person should not be allergic to anesthesia for hair transplantation. Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure and the person should not have a disease that prevents the operation. Hair transplantation is not recommended for pregnant and newly born women.
Smoking and alcohol should not be used for a certain period of time before and after the hair transplant operation. It is not right to apply hair transplantation to those who are addicted to such products.
Hair transplantation is not applied to those who have blood diseases that affect blood values such as cancer.
Although the legal age of surgery is 18, hair transplantation should not be applied to people who have not completed their physical development and have not completed their hair loss stages.
Hair transplantation can be done after determining whether there is blood circulation in the region for those who have baldness that fills the hair loss phase or who have regional hair loss due to events such as accidents or burns.
Fue Hair Transplantation Method
The FUE (Folicular Unite Extraction) technique is the process of taking healthy hair follicles from the donor area using surgical equipment called micromotors and placing them in the channels opening to the bald area. The donor area is usually determined as the nape and behind the ear resistant to spills. Thanks to the planting of hair follicles resistant to shedding, the hair does not fall out again and a permanent solution is offered to the patient.
FUE hair transplantation is the most applied hair transplantation method worldwide. Since it has been applied for many years, today very successful results are obtained in hair transplantation thanks to the experience of doctors.
The first step in the basic application principle of the FUE hair transplant method is the application of local anesthesia. In this way, the patient does not feel any pain during the procedure. The second stage is the collection of healthy hair follicles from the donor area. Collected hair follicles, single, double or triple roots are separated and protected in a special solution. In the third stage, channels are opened in the area to be transplanted. These channels are opened according to the size and direction of the hair follicle and are in the form of very small wounds. In the last stage, the collected hair follicles are placed in the opened channels at an appropriate angle.
Why Is The Fue Technique The Most Ideal Method?
The reasons why FUE technique is preferred more than other hair transplantation methods are;
- There are no scars in the donor areas where the hair follicles are taken and in the area where the canal is opened.
- Since the hair follicles are not taken from the scalp in the form of an incision, there is no stitching and no scars.
- Hair transplantation costs are lower than other hair transplantation techniques.
- It can be applied in eyebrow, mustache and beard transplantation with the FUE method.
Sapphire Fue Hair Transplantation Method
The only difference is the equipment used in Sapphire FUE hair transplantation, which basically has the same principle as the FUE hair transplantation method. Sapphire FUE hair transplantation method uses special sapphire-tipped blades. These Sapphire tipped blades used in hair transplantation are much more durable and sharper than steel.
Since the sapphire blades used in the Sapphire FUE hair transplantation method are very caked, the channels opened are smaller and smoother. In this way, since tissue damage to the balding skin area is less, the recovery time is much shorter.
Dhı Hair Transplantation Method
DHI, that is, direct hair transplantation method, which is among the most remarkable hair transplantation methods in recent times, has many advantages. The most striking advantage is that this method is easily applied to women as well. In classical hair transplantation methods, the hair is shaved, but in the DHI hair transplantation method, the hair does not need to be shaved. Since there is no shaving phase, women who want to have a hair transplant but do not want to have their hair cut they can do it. Another advantage of DHI hair transplantation is that there is no channel opening stage, so the recovery time after hair transplantation is considerably shorter.
Hair Transplantation In Sleep
Hair transplant operations are long-lasting surgical procedures. Some patients prefer to spend this long period in sleep. Due to the needle used while applying local anesthesia, patients with needle phobia are uneasy and sometimes give up on hair transplantation. For patients with a fear of needles, hair transplantation is performed in semi-application using special sedation drugs. The only difference from the classical hair transplant method is that the patient sleeps during the operation.
Hair Transplantation In Women
Hair loss is an important problem for women as well as men. Since hair is very important for women in terms of aesthetics, hair loss causes psychological problems.
Contrary to what is known, hair transplantation is also applied to women. Women who have hair loss problems should first learn the underlying cause of hair loss. After the problem is found, treatment methods such as medication, PRP, hair mesotherapy should be tried. When all these treatment methods do not work, hair transplantation offers a permanent solution.
Hair transplantation is applied as completely unshaven or semi-shaved for women. Thanks to the completely unshaven hair transplantation method, women who do not want to have their hair cut can easily have hair transplantation.
Hair Transplant From Body Hair
Hair transplantation using body hair is a method applied for patients who have severe hair loss and do not have enough hair follicles in the donor area. The donor area is usually the nape and above-ear parts that are resistant to spillage. In some patients, the area of baldness is large and there are not enough hair follicles in the donor area. At this point, hair follicles in certain parts of the body can be used for planting in order to provide a solution to the patient.
Body hair used for hair transplantation can be areas such as legs, back, chest. Considering the different characteristics of scalp hair, which body hair will be used for hair transplantation is determined according to the necessary criteria and examinations.
