Things You Must Know About Hair Transplantation
How Is Hair Transplantation Done?
It is done by a medical team of 4 people, in the surgery room of a private hospital which has the necessary sterile conditions. The crucial thing here is that itâ€™s not done in an ordinary hospital unit, but in a sterile surgery room which contains special sterilization systems.
1st Phase in Hair Transplantation
First your photographs are taken and then your hair is cut short level 1 with machines that are only special for you, and then your hair is prepared for local anesthesia. After that, without any pain, local anesthesia is applied and you are ready for the hair transplantation.
2nd Phase in Hair Transplantation
In this phase, a horizontal line is made just at the point of two ears, and the hair below that line will be taken as genetically it is never lost. In each clinic the grafts of 1, 2, 3 and 4 scale (we call them hair units) are taken out with techniques and technological equipment special to that clinic, and they are kept and therefore nourished for a while in special solutions. The microsurgical punches used in this phase are completely unique for every clinic. In hair transplantation, punches special for the patient can be used with hair follicles between 0.6 and 1 cm diameter. In that aspect, the important thing is how many healthy and dense hair follicles have been taken out with the microsurgical engine used in FUE hair transplantation in the clinic you went to, rather than how thin or sensitive microsurgical punches have been used. In one session of FUE hair transplantation you may have taken out 5000 hair follicles, or in other words 5000 grafts.
3rd Phase in Hair Transplantation
This phase is connected to the first phase when your photographs were taken and therefore an operation plan and algorithm is formulated now, and the most important thing in this phase is to determine the front hair line which has a close relationship with a natural, quality and dense transplantation.
4th Phase in Hair Transplantation
This is the phase when you can shape your hair after the operation, or comb it as you wish, to any direction.
5th Phase in Hair Transplantation
This is the phase when the obtained hair follicles are placed one by one into the opened canals. So as not to skip even a single canal and therefore not letting a mistake, this is the last important phase when the doctor works with great attention.
6th Phase in Hair Transplantation
After your hair is cleansed with special lotions, you are informed about the things you should do after the transplantation and also your private forms are presented to you. Now, you can go home happily with your hair transplanted.
CASES SUITABLE FOR HAIR TRANSPLANTATION
*Cases which are caused by burns or scars after surgery.
*Loss of hair in males.
*Loss of hair coming from birth or local loss of hair.
*Local loss of hair caused by any infection.
*Loss of hair caused by the pulling of hair especially in women and wrong use of hair also (fractional alopecia).
*Pulling of hair as a result of an itch, which is usually caused by a psychological disorder called trichotillomania.
Hair transplantation is a safe operation. Besides, hair can be transferred to eyebrow, moustache or beard areas and thus eyebrows, moustaches or beards look more natural.
Thereâ€™s not a certain age limit for hair transplantation. But very young people who even havenâ€™t completed their military duty usually make wrong decisions when they begin to lose hair. If you donâ€™t plan it very well and act so quickly and if you choose inappropriate hair transplantation clinics, the result may be worse in the long run and you may not be able to make it up. For that reason, we advise young people below 20 not to hurry up and first to see an expert doctor who can suggest them a protective treatment before they reach the necessary age for hair transplantation.
FACTORS THAT AFFECT NATURAL APPEARANCE IN HAIR TRANSPLANTATION
A- Having abundant or thin hair in the area below the line of your ears.
B- Sorting out hair follicles (grafts) and cleaning the graft epithelium as well as possible. This requires experience, knowledge and skill.
C- The canals opened for the grafts must be natural and suitable: If the canals are small and in the right direction, your hair will grow naturally and look natural.
Hair transplanted in the canals by an expert and experienced doctor can be combed in every direction and can be shaped as wished.
If the patient has curly hair, it is relatively harder for the doctor to take out hair follicles from the donor area but in those cases results are better regarding abundance and natural appearance of hair and also it is better aesthetically. Curly hair follicles will spread better on the transplantation area and look more dense and natural.
If the patient has got white hair; to detect hair follicles requires more effort and harder work. Loops with microscopes need to be used especially with white hair. Results are completely natural.
If the patient has got blonde or fair hair; it is easier to sort out the hair follicles and the results are completely natural.
If the patient has got dark hair; Sorting out the hair follicles requires more effort and harder work. With a careful and attentive work the patient will definitely have natural and good hair.
If the patient has got straight hair; it is quite easy to sort out the hair follicles. Taking hair follicles and transplanting the hair is done quickly and gives natural results.
Is FUE Hair Transplantation Method Painful?
Hair transplantation operations are done in the surgery rooms of private hospitals, not in a hair transplantation clinic. Also local anesthesia is applied. The whole operation lasts 6-8 hours. The operation finishes comfortably without any pain. Patients who have had FUE operations say that after the operation they havenâ€™t felt any pain and that one neednâ€™t be afraid of such an operation. Thatâ€™s the reason that thereâ€™s even no need to use any pain relievers after those hair transplantation operations.
How Long Does It Take For The New Hair To Grow After Transplantation?
After FUE hair transplantation, a dark reddish cover appears on the area that was exposed to hair transplantation. You can prevent this by washing your head twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. Within 7-10 days the cover will be completely gone, and 15 days after the operation no one can tell that the patient has gone a hair transplantation operation. Between the 15th day and the 3rd month after the operation the transplanted hair will be gone. And then there wonâ€™t be any change for a new 3-month period. The new hair will begin to grow in the 6th month after the operation. The growth of all the hair will be completed between 9-12 months.
Does Hair Transplantation Have Any Side Effects?
There havenâ€™t been any reported bad side effects after hair transplantation operations. No remarks about this issue in newspapers until today. For that reason, people thinking of having a hair transplantation operation must avoid exaggerated adverts or commercials and they should apply to real clinics with experienced doctors.
How Many Times Is It Possible To Have Hair Transplantation?
It can be done 4 times the most depending on the size of the area transplanted and whether the loss of hair is still continuing.
Will Any Other Hair Transplantation Methods Replace FUE in the Future?
FUE is currently the most effective treatment method for loss of hair in men. There are still studies on hair clone, but no concrete results have been reached. If succeeded in the future, some hair follicles taken from the scalp will be cloned in laboratories according to how many the patient needs and then all those follicles will be placed on the non-haired area.
How Long Can We Use the Hair Transplanted with FUE Method?
Hair transplanted with FUE method is never lost and will grow a life time.
