Throughout history; hair has been the symbol of health, vitality, strength and attractiveness. For this reason, hair loss in both men and women can create significant psychological problems. Alopecia is the general name of hair loss and it is the most common type. The treatable form of alopecia is called androgenetic alopecia.
FUE Hair Transplantation
FUE hair transplant method is the most advanced technique among hair transplantation methods recently. This method is based on the processing of the appropriate hair follicles from the nape area to the hair follicle. In addition, when the hair follicles taken from the nape are removed, no incision is made. Hair follicles are removed under favorable conditions with the help of micromotors.
Fue hair transplant method has more comfort than other transplantation methods. Especially after hair transplantation, the absence of any incision marks in the transplantation area is seen as great comfort for the patients. In addition, redness or pain seen in other methods are very rare in fue hair transplantation method.
Before the hair transplant, the direction of hair growth and the donor area are determined correctly. Hair follicles are taken from the nape area with the help of very small micromotors with an incision tip of 0.6 mm-0.8 mm. The hair follicles taken are planted in the hair structure according to the direction of the roots. Thus, the planting process is completed in a very short time. The most important point during purchase and planting; is not to damage any hair tissue through the opened channels.
After Fue hair transplant, our patients are discharged if our specialists deem it appropriate. Our specialists perform all necessary examinations both during and after hair transplant. In particular, great sensitivity is shown about what the patient should pay attention to.
The most attention should be paid to getting the most out of hair transplant and not experiencing hair loss. Especially the first 48 hours after the procedure is very important. For this reason, if possible, it is not deemed appropriate to carry out the first washing of the hair or any intervention for 48 hours. If there is an intervention to be made, expert support should be obtained.

Sparseness or loss of hair is not only experienced in men. Hair loss is also experienced in women due to hormones, diseases or genetic conditions. In these cases, one of the right interventions is the fue hair transplant technique. This method is easily applied to men and women without any gender discrimination.
Phases of Hair Transplant Operation Process;
Consultation is the most important key to success in hair transplantation. It will inform both the doctor and the patient about the planning of the procedure and how successful the operation will be. Important points to be considered in consultation;
– Patient’s expectation and the method to be chosen,
– The density of hair that will occur after the procedure is determined by the open area and donor density,
– The appearance of the hairline in the near and far future,
– With the donor hair structure, the hair volume in the area to be closed after the procedure,
– Possible risks and side effects that may occur during the procedure
Hair transplantation is done by using only local anesthesia alone. It can also be used together with sedatives. In local anesthesia generally lidocaine, prilocaine and bupivacaine are among the preferred chemicals. Usually, adrenaline forms are used.
It is the only painful part of the hair transplant operation process. You may feel 5-10 minutes of pain at the beginning of the operation process.
3. Extraction of the follicles
Hair follicles are collected individually with the FUE micromotor. It is very important that the follicles are not damaged in the extraction process. The extraction should be taken superficially, including hair follicles and adipose tissue (nerve and vascular damage should be avoided). Each of these follicles, called grafts, contains from 1 to 4 hairs. The obtained grafts are kept in special solutions before implantation process.
4. Opening of the channels
Despite the use of different incision tools and techniques, the basic logic in the opening channels process is to open channels equal to the depth and width of the obtained roots. The angle of the channel should be well adjusted to achieve the most natural appearance.
The opening channel determines the density of the result and the direction of the hair that will grow. For this reason, it must be done by an experienced doctor and should not be rushed.
5. Placement of grafts
It is one of the critical stages of the hair transplant process that requires experience and patience. Usually, graft placement is performed by 2 or 3 assistants. Experienced technicians can transfer 800-900 grafts per hour.
