What’s Hair Transplant?

Hair transplantation is the process of transplanting grafts from the area where the hair is to the non-hair area on the head. It is a very common operation for people who have hair loss problems or whose hair is sparse. Since it is a permanent solution, most people with hair loss apply this operation. Each hair transplantation is planned individually. Generally, there is a loss in the middle part of the hair. Hair is collected from the hair areas of the head and transferred to the non-hair area. Channels are opened to the bald part of the hair and the bushy hair is transplanted in this way. Before all these procedures, the hair follicles are monitored with certain devices, surgeons determine the condition of the hair, and it is determined how strong the hair follicles of the patient have.

What are the Hair Transplant Methods?

There are four methods in total for hair transplantation.

  1. FUT Technique (Follicular Unit Transplantation)
  2. FUE Technique (Follicular Unit Extraction)
  3. DHI Technique (Direct Hair Implantation)
  4. DHI Plus Gold

FUT Technique is a hair transplantation method that has been applied for many years. The scalps are cut and removed from the area where there is no hair loss and solid hair, and then hair transplantation is performed to the area where the baldness is. The hair follicles are removed in strips and planted in the area to be transplanted. Since local anesthesia is applied, no pain sensation is felt.

FUE Technique is a hair transplantation technique that is now more popular. In this technique, hair is taken from a certain area of the head, and hair is transplanted to the area where baldness occurs. Before the hair transplantation process, the hair is shortened to 1 mm before follicle removal. Then the area where the hair will be transplanted is anesthetized, and the hair strands are added to the balding area. The person does not feel any pain. In the FUT technique, cuts and stitches are made, but in the FUE technique, there are no cuts or stitches. As a result, the person is pain-free.

In the DHI Technique, the bushy hair on the nape of the person is usually preferred. Before this procedure, the hair follicles are examined in detail with devices. In this technique, the healthy hair follicles on the neck are removed with the micromotor device, which is an advanced technological device, and these removed hair follicles are transplanted one by one to the area where the baldness is located. The head is anesthetized with local anesthesia beforehand so that the patient does not feel anything. Before using the DHI technique, it is of great importance to make a personalized hair design. In this way, each hair follicle is placed one by one towards the exit direction of the hair.

DHI Plus Gold is an advanced version of the DHI hair transplantation technique. Thanks to this technique, graft loss has been reduced to almost zero. Hair analysis is performed before hair transplantation, other processes are the same as the DHI technique.
