What is hair transplantation?

Hair transplantation is a natural and permanent solution for people who have recently experienced hair loss and hair shedding. It is the process of transplanting hair follicles by micro-surgical methods. Hair transplant is planned and applied completely individually. In hair transplantation, the patient’s own healthy hair is added to the shed or bald area.

Generally, hair follicles that are more resistant to shedding in the nape area are collected and added to the channels in areas with thinning or baldness. As a result of this procedure, patients obtain a natural and permanent solution.

Since hair transplantation is considered a surgical operation, it should be performed by specialists and experienced doctors in a hospital or clinic setting. As a result of hair transplantation, patients will have natural and healthy hair that looks like they have never been shed.

The FUE technique has been the most developed in the last 15 years. In the FUE technique, hair follicles are collected one by one from the nape area. Hair follicles extracted with the help of a micromotor device or manual punch are kept in a special environment with a special solution. After the area to be transplanted is prepared, the hair follicles are placed in the area with great delicacy. Since the hair follicles are placed one by one with the FUE technique, the processing time may be extended depending on the number of hair follicles that need to be transplanted. However, with the FUE method, recovery is fast and there is no scar on the skin after the operation.
