FUE hair transplant is one of the preferred treatment methods for many years. It is the process of transferring the permanent hair on the back of the head to the balding areas with this method, which can be preferred by everyone who is 18 years old and experiencing hair loss. So, how is the FUE hair transplant procedure done?
In order to achieve a natural appearance in FUE hair transplant, the front hairline of the person experiencing hair loss is determined. The fact that the front hairline is too far from the front or too far behind may detract from the naturalness of the person, and it is not preferred in terms of naturalness if it is in a straight line. After the front hairline is determined, the areas that experience shedding are determined. FUE hair transplant consists of four stages. In the first stage, the area where the hair follicles will be collected is shaved and the reason for this is to facilitate the removal of hair follicles with the help of a micromotor. Then, the area where the hair follicles will be collected is numbed with local anesthetic drugs.
In the second stage, hair follicles are collected one by one from the nape area by micromotor method. It may take up to two hours for hair follicles to be collected. Then, the area to be transplanted is anesthetized with local anesthesia and after this procedure, the channel opening phase is started. After the hair follicles are collected, holes called canals are opened in the area to be transplanted with the help of special steel-tipped tools. Collected hair follicles are transplanted into these holes one by one. FUE hair transplantation can take an average of 7-8 hours.
FUE hair transplant should be performed by expert teams. The channels, which are opened with the help of steel-tipped tools, are opened towards the direction of hair growth. After hair transplantation, crusting may occur in these channels and it may take an average of 10 days for these crusts to fall off. Within 1 or 2 months after the procedure, the patient may experience a shedding called the shock shedding phase. Although individuals who encounter this shedding phase think that the treatment has resulted in a negative result, this situation is temporary. After the shedding phase, the spills start to slow down and stop completely over time.
FUE hair transplantation may vary according to the number of grafts. Although the procedure is the same, the prices of the specialist and clinic who will do the hair transplantation may also vary. The patient’s hair follicles and hair condition will affect the price, as well as extra situations that may occur during hair transplantation.
