WHAT ARE THE TECHNIQUES FOR HAIR TRANSPLANTATION?
The best hair transplantation technique is the easiest to apply and provides the most natural results. To give a natural look with hair transplantation, there should be no visible marks on the scalp and the hairline should look just normal. The hair density should gradually thicken and condenses from the forehead to the vertex.
Today, the FUE method is the preferred method of hair transplant surgeons.
FUE Hair Transplant
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction), which is the most widely used hair transplantation technique today, is a method of hair transplantation performed by collecting the hair follicles in the nape region without forming a linear incision. Under local anesthesia, using small needle tips, small incisions are made around the follicular unit and the hair follicles are collected one by one and placed in the balding areas.
Compared to the previous methods, the FUE method is much more comfortable and painless for the patient. FUE method does not require stitches in the donor area during hair transplantation process and therefore, no permanent scar is formed.
The main advantages of FUE technique:
– The operation is performed under local anesthesia so that the patient can return to daily life after the operation,
– It is completely painless,
– Does not leave any scars or stitches on the head.
Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant
Sapphire FUE is not a technique in itself but an innovation in the FUE method. In sapphire FUE operations, a special sapphire tip is used for channeling during hair transplantation.
DHI Hair Transplant
DHI Hair Transplantation is a hair transplantation application that has become widespread especially after 2016. In this method, the hair follicles are individually collected from the donor region by the FUE method and placed in the desired region by special medical pens called Choi. Using DHI pens, hair harvesting and hair follicles placement can be performed simultaneously.
