Hair TransPlant Treatments;
Hair transplantation and treatments are a process that allows people who have problems such as hair loss, thinning of the hair and baldness to regain their old strong hair. Hair transplantation is done by transplanting healthy hair follicles taken from the patient to the problem areas. This procedure should be performed in the operating environment with a professional team and
It is a process that requires expertise. Hair transplantation and treatments are an application that should be meticulously performed and observed before and after the surgery. Necessary tests should be done before the operation and blood values should be checked. There are many different techniques of hair transplantation and treatments. These differ according to the patient’s wishes, needs and payment possibilities. In hair transplantation, the patient’s needs, the patient’s expectation, the condition of the donor area and the condition of the area to be transplanted are evaluated together with the patient, and the method to be applied is decided together with the patient. Two different methods are used in hair transplantation and treatment as FUE and FUT. Except for FUE and FUT, all the methods described are minor differences produced from these two techniques.
In the FUT technique, the donor area is anesthetized with local anesthesia to collect the hair follicles. Thanks to local anesthesia, no pain is felt during the operation. It can be done in sedation according to the patient’s request. A piece of approximately 15 cm x 2 cm (the size of the area to be cut may vary according to the area of the area to be transplanted) is cut and surgically removed from the numbed donor area. The piece of skin taken from the donor area is carefully prepared for hair transplantation and the hair follicles are extracted. The grafts separated from the skin piece are neatly placed in containers called petri dishes. The donor area from which the graft is removed is closed and wrapped with an aesthetic suture. After a healing process that will take approximately 20 days to 1 month, a horizontal suture scar will remain in the nape area (donor area) between the two ears. One of the disadvantages of the FUT technique is that there is a permanent suture scar in the donor area after the operation. After the grafts are extracted, the hair transplantation process is started. At this stage, local anesthesia is applied to the area to be planted. After the area to be transplanted becomes numb, the number of grafts removed by the surgeon is opened and the extracted grafts are placed inside the channels. Dressing is done on the 1st day after the operation. The bandage is removed on the 2nd day. On the 3rd day, the hair is washed and the dressing is started. These processes are continued for 10 days. Stitches are removed on the 15th day and all procedures and methods are the same after that.
FUE (follicular unit extraction) is widely used in the world and is more preferred than fut method. In the Fue method, no incisions are made on the scalp, so the application does not leave a permanent mark.
In hair transplantation using the FUE method, the treatment gives results in an average of 1 to 1.5 years. The most positive aspect of this treatment is that there are no cuts or stitches in the area where the hair is taken. There is very little pain after this surgery and the recovery time is very quick. As the diameter of the lumen needles used in hair transplantation decreases, the recovery time and quality of hair transplantation increase. We use 0.5-0.6-0.65-0.7-0.75-0.8mm tips in our clinic. We decide the tip thickness according to the thickness of the hair of the patient, the exit angle of the hair from the skin and the condition of the scalp.
Dressing is done on the 2nd day after the operation. On the 3rd day, hair washing is done. After washing the hair once a day as described for 7 days, normal hair washing process is started. It is necessary not to act aggressively during the hair washing process for 15 days. On the 15th day, the result of the transaction made to you becomes visible. After the 15th day, the transplanted hair starts to fall out and almost all of them fall out on the 40th day. These spills are normal and there are no restrictions from the 30th day. At the end of the 90th day, the hair starts to grow again. In the 6th month, the image becomes about 60 percent. After 1 or 1.5 years, the real result of hair transplantation will be shown.
According to the characteristics of the technique used, hair growth is achieved with an efficiency of approximately 80%-98% of the transplanted hair follicles. The success of the operation depends on the patient’s attention and compliance with the recommendations, as well as the experience and success of the doctor performing the operation. Patient-physician communication is the most important part of success.
Another hair transplant and treatment technique that has come to the fore in recent times is the DHI application. In this method, direct hair transplantation is performed. Direct hair transplantation method is the transplantation process with a medical pen specific to the treatment. The only difference between DHI hair transplantation and FUE is that the extracted hair is transplanted with an apparatus such as a pen without opening channels. If the experience of the practicing physician is not sufficient, it is better to use the DHI sowing method. In manual planting, if the experience of the transplanting doctor is very good, a successful planting can be done close to one hundred percent. In an inexperienced hand, the DHI method is better. The DHI method has been widely used for about 15 years and its results are close to 90 percent successful. In the DHI method, when the canal is opened with a pencil-like apparatus and simultaneously planted, root loss may occur due to traction.
Unshaven Hair Transplant
Two different methods are used for unshaven hair transplantation. Depending on the patient’s request or the doctor’s recommendation, it is applied either by shaving a small part of the neck or by roots taken from that area. Another method is to use a certain
It is the shaving of a certain area in the area and hiding it by covering it with longer hair. Since the area used in this method is limited, it is suitable for infrequent hair transplantation and treatment. Unshaven hair transplant procedure, the doctor who will do it
It is a more difficult and lengthy process. The fact that the area to be transplanted is unshaven requires greater care, as it makes it more difficult for the doctor to see the roots. For this reason, it may be more difficult and costly than other shaved processes. Its

Stem cell therapy can be applied both during and after hair transplantation, so it is thought that the growing hair will be much denser and healthier. Our experience is that it does not affect the success of the operation.
Multisession Hair Transplant
Hair transplantation is usually completed in a single session and the desired result can be achieved. However, sometimes there are cases where a single session is not enough for patients or they cannot tolerate a long operation. In addition, when hair collection will be performed from different regions, the operation may spread over days due to the risk of local anesthetic overdose. In such cases, multi-session hair transplantation treatment can be performed.
Sedated Hair Transplant
From time to time, patients are worried that they will be conscious during the procedure, and they experience fears similar to the fear of surgery. This fear can be experienced more intensely, as the process is a long process that requires patience. With sedation hair transplantation, the procedure is performed with a 10-minute sleep period without experiencing these fears. Thus, the pain caused by the anesthesia applied to the scalp will be prevented.
Sapphire Hair Transplant
Another most preferred hair transplant and treatment method in the last period is the sapphire hair transplant method. In this technique, the roots obtained by the fue method are specially made of sapphire.

Botox Hair Transplant

Briefly, it is an application to facilitate the hair transplantation process and to increase the number of hairs that can be planted in the transplantation area.
Beard and Mustache Transplantation

The fact that the mustaches do not grow as thick as before can affect the patients negatively. With beard and mustache transplantation, it is possible to make the beard old and strong. In beard and mustache transplantation
