Fue Hair Transplant
What are the stages of the FUE method?
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. After the area where the hair to be transplanted will be taken is prepared for the procedure, the hair follicles in suitable condition are collected one by one. Root collection is performed with incision tips smaller than 1 mm (between 0.6 mm and 0.8 mm) via the FUE motor. Received follicles (Graft) contain 2-3 hairs. It is very important that the roots are not damaged at this time. Since thousands of roots will be removed from the donor area during hair transplantation, the smallness of the tip to be used affects the healing process of the area.
After all the hair roots are collected, planting is started after the separation. Channels must be opened very carefully for the sowing process. Root canal opening is a process that requires precision and experience as much as root collection.
The lateral slit method, which has recently started to be preferred instead of the punch system when opening the canal, makes the incisions suitable for the structure of the hair and provides the opening of the channels suitable for the size and length of the patient’s hair follicle. The channels opened in the right size and depth affect the regrowth rate of the transplanted hair in hair transplantation.
Another important issue is the angle of the canal where the hair follicle will be transplanted. Angles, which are the most important factors in capturing the natural hairstyle, should be given differently in each part of the head. Otherwise, the hair will not take the desired shape. Another factor for capturing naturalness is the correct determination of the hairline. The forehead area and the area where the hair starts should be calculated with the correct proportions.
How is FUE hair transplant done?
Hair follicles are collected from the nape of the head, channels are opened to the recipient area and hair follicles are transplanted into these channels.
FUE hair transplantation is simply done in this way.
However, hair transplantation planning is created individually. Depending on the type of shedding, the width of the area to be transplanted and the area of the head vary. This is the most important factor determining hair transplantation planning.
FUE hair transplant; It is done with a hair transplantation plan that is specially created according to many parameters such as the type and reason of shedding, age, hair type, skin type.
According to the number of grafts to be collected from the donor area and the number of channels to be opened to the recipient area, some details may change during the application stages of FUE hair transplantation. For example, the general trend is primarily to collect grafts from the donor area, but an approach such as opening the channels first can be preferred in order to shorten the time the hair follicles spend outside.
In the FUE technique, the grafts collected from the donor area are grouped according to their thickness and number of roots before planting. This stage is the most important and sensitive stage of the FUE technique. The time that each graft remains outside is monitored so that the hair follicles do not die. There are some sensitivities such as transplanting the first hair follicle first.
Am I a suitable candidate for FUE hair transplant?
If the hair and hair follicles in the donor area are weak, it may not be possible to have as thick hair as you expect, although you are a suitable candidate for FUE hair transplantation. Since hair loss due to stress and hormonal changes begins at a very early age, the age of hair transplantation is between 20 and 60, and the negative psychological effects of hair loss often increase the severity of hair loss. The shortest way to get out of this vicious circle would be to apply to experts in this field and get the right information about hair transplantation, without waiting for being completely bald. FUE hair transplantation is the most successful technique in hair transplantation, suitable for women and men of all ages.
