HAIR TRANSPLANTATION METHODS
Hair transplantation methods are surgeries/ techniques which have many different variables in themselves.
Patients’ conditions and treatment methods are various. For this reason, important variables are taken into consideration by doctors who are specialists in the field and treatment methods are determined for patients. Factors such as age of patients, balding area extent, hair root density (quality of grafts) in the donor area (back of the head) should be examined for proper adequate treatment.
FUT Hair Transplantation Technique:
FUT hair transplantation method is the oldest hair transplantation method used. This method is related to the extraction of hair follicles (grafts). The most important feature of the FUT method is that the hair follicles are collected in mass. During this process, approximately 3 square centimeters of skin is cut from the back of the head. The grafts in the cut area are cleaned and made ready for the transplantation. Then the hair follicles are transplanted to the area required. The main disadvantage of this method is that it leaves a large horizontal scar on the donor area. The recovery process takes longer than other methods. The process can be applied a little faster due to the fact that different roots of the FUT technique are collected on a stripe.
FUE HAIR TRANSPLANTATION METHOD
This method, which was discovered after the FUT technique, has become the most preferred hair transplantation process since its application. In the FUE hair transplantation method, grafts are collected from the donor area.
In the FUE method, the hair follicles are carefully extracted one by one and kept ready for transplantation in a special solution.
Cuts and stitches were eliminated by the FUE method. The advantage of the FUE hair transplantation method is that, unlike the FUT technique, there are no scars and incisions left. Therefore, the most widely used hair transplantation method today is the FUE method.
In the FUE method, there are no traces in the neck area. The hair follicles are gently removed, prepared for processing and transplanted one by one in the opened channels. FUE hair transplantation method is divided into 5 techniques in itself.
Manual Punch Hair Transplant Technique:
The manual punch hair transplantation technique is part of the FUE hair transplantation technique. In this method, the hair roots are taken one by one with the help of a punch without damaging the hair follicles.
Taking the hair with manuel punch does not damage the roots and ensures the healthy and successful hair transplantation process. Manual punch is a medical graft collection device. According to the structure of hair strands are used with different sizes of tips. Non-medical device manual punch is applied with dexterity. The manual punch method, which is applied by hand, is applied by our doctor to our patients.
Micro-Motor Hair Transplantation Technique:
Micro-motor hair transplantation technique is the sub-branch of FUE hair transplantation method as in manual punch technique. Micro-motor hair transplantation technique is a method that emerged with the development of manual punch and gives more successful and faster results than manual point. Micro-motor FUE shows that the grafting process is performed with a micro-motor device in hair transplantation surgeries. After removing the grafts one by one with micro-motor and making them ready for transplantation, the hair follicles are placed in the opened channels. Micro-motor is a medical graft collection device. According to the structure of hair strand, it is used with different sizes of tips (punches). Micro-motor is an automatic device that works electrically.
DHI Hair Transplant Technique:
The DHI hair transplantation technique, namely the Direct Hair Transplant procedure, is not about how the grafts are collected, but how they are transplanted. Therefore, this method can be used together with the FUE method and other methods under which hair follicles are collected. In the DHI method, the hair follicles collected individually by FUE are placed in a pen-like medical instrument (Choi pen) and the roots are planted with the grooving process. In this method, the specially designed DHI pen can be used for grooving and hair follicles at the same time.
The biggest advantage of DHI hair transplantation technique is the frequent and intensive hair transplantation. This is especially effective in people with less balding areas. DHI technique can give very good results especially in hair densification. In DHI technique, hair transplantation can be done without shaving the patient’s hair.
HAIR TRANSPLANTATION PRICES
Hair transplantation techniques vary in the treatment of the patient. Therefore, hair transplantation methods vary according to individual characteristics. Not every technique is suitable for every person and the pricing of each technique is therefore different. However, hair transplantation prices vary according to the treatment method of each person to be applied. Since the materials and techniques used in the implantation of each method are different, hair transplantation prices also differ. It is a very important factor for the success of the treatment by getting in touch with the expert and experienced hair transplant doctors to get information about the hair transplantation method and the hair andalso which one to be applied and how the treatment will take place. Before doing hair transplantation, a good research should be done and the treatment should be started with an expert hair transplant center.
