Hair transplantation can be performed in total hair loss and for flimsy hairs.
The transplanted hair can be used for life as it is collected from the area which is genetically coded not to be shed.In FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method, the hair follicles should be cut shortly before the operation.A scalpel with a diameter of 0,7 -0,9 mm, connected to the motor, collects many micrografts from the area starting from the top of the ear through the nape and until the other ear.
These micrografts are divided into groups by microscope and they are made ready for transplantation.Micro-grafts,which have 1,2,3 hair follicles on top of them, are transplanted into the small slits opened with local anesthesia by the help of the method.This method adjusts the growing direction of the hair and helps the amount of existing hair follicles to fit properly.When the hairs start to grow, they create a very natural view.Because in the transplantation which is performed without method may not show up with desired result with same amount of grafts.
The first 2 to 3 hours of hair transplantation is the time to collect grafts and in this case it is suitable for the patient to lie face onwards.The patient can eat before the beginning of transplantation process if he/she wishes.As it can last for 2 to 4 hours because the transplantation stage depends on the amount of the grafts.The patient’s head is slightly elevated or the patient lies on his back.The patient can watch TV and listen to music in the meantime.The transplanted area is left open after the transplantation process is over.In addition, the graft donor site is closed by medical dressing with on the condition to be opened in the next day.Slight aches may be observed in the closed area first day but there is nothing to be afraid of.
