Who Can Get A Hair Transplantation Operation

Hormonal characteristics of the male body may lead to baldness. There are various patterns that male baldness starts and progresses. It usually begins at the top of the scalp of edges of the hairline. Women may also suffer from hair loss too. 

A professional hair transplantation expert may examine the type, ratio and possible causes of hair loss and may decide whether the patient needs a hair transplantation operation. If the medical expert decides so, they will also determine the method to be used in the operation too. A hair transplantation operation may be performed at anyone over the age of 22.

Genetic factors,

  • Scalp conditions such as ringworm,
  • Certain chronic disorders,
  • Thyroid disorders,
  • Side effect of drugs causing hair loss,
  • metabolic disorders,
  • Bad hair care,
  • Anemia due to iron deficiency,
  • Psychological and neurological disorders such as stress
  • unbalanced nutrition, low in vitamins,
  • Menopause, pregnancy and post-natal hormonal for women,

Causes mentioned above can cause hair loss in women and men. Some of these are temporary and others are permanent. Hair that grows in a certain period of time in the natural hair cycle is weaning through discoloration. And the natural hair cycle continues this way. Your hair is lost throughout the day and get replaced. It is normal to lose 100 strands of hair every day, but there are more than 100 spills and openings in some areas are an indication of a problem. There are many methods developed to prevent hair loss. However, the most effective and satisfying solution among them is hair transplant when it is applied successfully.

Before the operation, your doctor calculates the number of follicles needed to reach the good result and the natural appearance, some tests and also included, and detailed questions in order to know if your case is suitable for a hair transplant surgery and to define the donor area which is basically the area where the grafts will be taken from. For men this area is usually the back side of hair, in particular cases beard or legs hair can also be added in order to achieve the number of grafts required. Before the intervention your doctor will let you know about some steps to be considered such as:

Anticoagulants such as aspirin should not be taken one week before the operation,

  • wash the hair before the operation
  • Stop alcohol and cigarettes 1 week before the operation
  • Wear an easy outfit, such as a shirt preferably on the day of the operation,
  • If you use a medicine, the doctor must be informed before the operation,
  • Do not consume caffeine before the operation,
  • Before hair transplantation, products such as jelly, solution, lotion, hair spray or conditionerwith chemical content must not be applied to hair,
  • Avoid heavy meals before the surgery,

The hair transplant surgery must not be considered as a simple intervention, all the indicated recommendations must be taken into consideration for the intervention to be successful.

The hair transplant operation is usually performed under local anesthesia in order to prevent pain, the hair is donor area is shortened and grafts removed one by one, but not at regular intervals to avoid opening and dilutions in donor areas. Once the extraction is complete, the healthy grafts are separated and stacked in a special area in 100 rows. The amount of grafts required for transplantation varies depending on the width and clarity of the area, the thickness and type of the patient’s hair. Once all these procedures are complete a front cut line is determined to confirm the patient’s facial shape and natural appearance, then the channels are opened and the grafts are transplanted into them. The duration of operation varies according to the number of transplants to take, while the average is 6-8 hours.

Hair Transplant For Women

Although dilutions are less visible in women than men, this is psychologically affecting women more. Genetic factors, as well as stress, age, various diseases, seasonal transitions, and also hormonal changes such as pregnancy, menopause, childbirth can cause male-type hair loss in women. Some beaks can be corrected by pharmacotherapy for the elimination of the cause, but the hair transplant operation for women is the most definitive solution for the non-avoidable beak. The hair transplant operation, which is known only to men, can be successfully applied in women too. The process is maintained with the usual course of hair growth, as performed in male patients. However, hair transplantation is difficult because the beak of female-type hair loss is evenly dispersed on the surface of the hair. And as it’s difficult it should be applied in a very cautious way and performed according to the type of hair loss and the results obtained so far are all successful.

FUT Technique

In Follicular Unit Transplantation, a long thin sliver of tissue is removed from the donor area in the back and sides of the scalp and the individual follicular unites are removed from that strip by a stereo-microscopic dissection, the wounds are then closed leaving a thin fine scar. Because the grafts are taken by a stereo-microscope the hair follicles are not damaged. Thus, the hair grows faster because the small channels do not disturb the blood circulation. Finally, the part of the fabric of the band is closed by suture and a very fine seam remains, but this scar is not apparent unless the hair is cut short.

Advantages of FUT technique:

  • More hair follicles can be transplanted in a session,
  • Can be applicated on eyebrow and beard transplantation,
  • To be done in a shorter period and less expensive,
  • No prominent/visible scar in patients with grey hair.

FUE Technique

The Follicular Unit Extraction, is the process of removing hair grafts from the donor area with a special instrument then implanting it on the bald regions. The FUE technique, has been applied since 2006 is the most advanced method. The benefits of this technique such as the easy and fast application of hair culture have made it more popular than FUT technique which is older, with this technique the grafts are taken with a special device from the donor area and implanted in channels around 0.7/0.8mm using special inserts, these grafts may contain cells of 2 or 3 packs, the number of transplant recipients can be 12,000 removed on the 5,000 unit and the root can be taken at the same time with no cutting or a skin band.

FUE Technique Advantages

  • Easier and faster,
  • Roots recover from 24 to 48 hours,
  • No incision process and no sewing required,
  • No loss of texture and feeling.
  • It can also be used for beard, mustache and eyebrow transplantation in addition to hair transplant grafts taken from the neck,
  • Faster recovery process,
  • The absence of pain after the operation because of the minimal incision.

Manual Punch FUE

One of the FUE techniques, Manual Punch FUE is a hair transplant method that is managed with the pen-shaped tool, ranging in size from 0.75 mm to 1.35 mm, by hand.

FUE performed with manual punch technique, 2500 grafts can be extracted in one hair transplant session. These extracted grafts are transferred manually to the bald area of the scalp by an experienced doctor.

The advantages of manual punch FUE as follows:

  • Remain less scar owing to the pen-shaped tool,
  • Allows navigating easily around the follicular unit,
  • Harvest rates of grafts can be quicker,
  • Grafts can be harvested without changing their natural structure.

This technique is also considered as the safest, most accurate method, because of it’s low trans section rate.

Sapphire FUE

Sapphire FUE is similar to the original FUE technique except for the blade that is used in the procedure. In this method, a sapphire blade is used to open channels on the scalp during the transplantation instead of razor or steel one.

At the first stage of hair transplantation, follicles are extracted and after transplanted into the channels that have been opened with the sapphire blades. Opening the channels is the most important part of the hair transplant procedure, because of its influence on the density, angle, and direction of the hair growth. Owing to the thin opening of sapphire blades, the grafts can be replaced without contacting with outside.

The other advantages of sapphire blades as follows:

  • Enables denser graft implantation,
  • Reduced risk of complications,
  • More natural appearance,
  • Shorter recovery period.

The most popular method nowadays, Direct Hair Implantation, briefly known as the DHI technique, individually collected grafts are placed in the planting areas with a special transplant tool, the CHOI PEN, which varies between 0.6mm and 1mm thick. For other methods, the process is performed at two separated steps, unlike in DHI with both extracting and implanting at the same time. Hair must be cut at a certain length and the line should be drown, the grafts are carefully collected with no damage, after determining the optimal angle and directions for transplantation found slits are created in the area to implant in. No holes or cuts are required for this method unlike the previous ones, this process lasts longer comparing to them making it necessary for the patient and doctor to be more cautious, also the price is higher due to using multiple tools.

DHI Method Benefits

  • Complete shaving of the hair is not required.
  • Faster recovery.
  • Healthier hair because grafts are taken and implanted directly.
  • Dense and lush hair due to the possibility of more root transplants.
  • No scars remain.
  • Angle of grafts determined more easily therefore they are more consistent.

After The Hair Transplant Operation

After the operation, there is a long process to pursuit and the final result will be shown after 12 months of the intervention. In order to get the aimed one, patients should be careful and cautious to the following recommendations to prevent any complications:

  1. Implanted grafts can be dislodged even in the simplest bumps and rubs. For this reason, it is necessary to pay attention when dressing,
  2. The first 15 days after the operation the scalp should not be exposed to direct sunlight. If the patient must get outdoors, they must protect their head, but must wear a hat that will not put pressure on the operated areas.
  3. Alcohol consumption and anticoagulants may cause bleeding in the operated area, there for they must be avoided.
  4. After the procedure the patient must not use a pillow during sleep at least for 2 nights. It is advisable to climb in the half-stretch or seat, because the pressure of the pillow can move the location of grafts.
  5. For three weeks, hair related chemicals such as jelly, hair spray, conditioner, lotion and topical should not be used.
  6. In the first days, the scalp should be kept dry for a quick healing of wounds and shedding of the scabs.
  7. After the operation, it is necessary to carefully use the medications and lotions recommended by the doctor.
  8. During the first week, avoid extreme sports, excitement and stress. The patient may resume light workout after a week from the operation.
  9. Shaving the operated area with a shaver should be refrained for at least 6 months.
  10. The transplant area must be protected against any trauma and impact for 2 weeks.
  11. Operated area should not be washed for at least 2 days. The first wash should be done after 48 hours after the hair transplant by the expert doctor and their team.
  12. Using a hair dryer must be avoided for a couple of weeks.
  13. It is very important to keep the transplanted area clean and hygienic. Avoid excessive sweating and dust to prevent any infection.
  14. Use the lotion and shampoo recommended by your doctor for 3 weeks. After the fall of the crusts, you can use any shampoo.
  15. Partial or complete hair loss in the operated are after 4-6 weeks is normal. Hair from the implanted grafts will start to regrow after 3-5 months. After around 7 months regrow rate is supposed to each around 70%. Achieving the complete desired look may take up to 12-15 months.

These instructions should be followed during the recovery period, in order to avoid complications. If the patient follows these and also their doctor’s advices, they will have a much higher chance of achieving the aimed result.

    Hello,

    Almost 2 years ago I got a hair transplant in the United States at a really “high” price thinking that the US is the best… But NO, it didn’t go well. Just after the operation, everything seemed okay. But when the time of shock loss came all my transplanted hair went away and I returned to my old, hairless version. This made me feel depressed about getting treatment for my hair loss.

    However today I want to give myself another chance through your hair transplant service. Cause I read a lot of positive things about your clinic even if I have not thought about Turkey. This is the thing I want to ask: Is it possible to get a second hair transplant? If yes, please contact me, I’m really looking forward to treating my hair correctly this time!
