Hair is considered as one of the most important elements of an aesthetic appearance. Depending on different reasons, women and men may experience hair loss over time. Hair loss can cause psychological problems and lack of self-confidence in people. Thanks to today's technology and the fact that hair transplantation methods are very advanced, the problems of people with hair loss and baldness can be solved effectively.
FUE hair transplantation is one of the most popular and successful methods recently applied to eliminate the problem of hair loss and baldness. In addition to the practicality of the application method, it does not cause any concerns in terms of aesthetics, since it is a traceless method. Another advantage of the FUE method is that no incision is made on the scalp. This increases comfort not only during the operation but also during the post-operative recovery period.
Provided that the donor area of FUE hair transplantation is sufficient;
In the procedure performed under local anesthesia, after the donor area is prepared, the hair follicles in suitable condition are collected one by one with incision tips smaller than 1 mm using the FUE motor. The grafts taken from the lateral follicles contain 2-3 hairs and maximum care should be taken not to damage these hair follicles. Since thousands of roots are taken from the donor area, the use of small tips has a positive effect on the healing process.
When the hair follicles are collected, the channels where the planting will be done are opened. This process is also extremely important and should be done meticulously and by experienced specialists, just like the collection of hair follicles. Channel opening operations are generally performed with the lateral slit method in recent years. Since the canals can be opened at smaller angles in this way, the lateral slit method is very advantageous in patients with thin skin structure and transplanted to the temple area. Since the thin scalpels used to open the channels are specially prepared according to the planned surgery, hair and graft thickness, the natural angle of the hair can be easily imitated. Since the diameter of the canals exactly coincides with the grafts, the healing process is very fast and comfortable.
Opening the channels at the right size and depth affects the rate of hair growth, and the angle of the channel affects the probability of achieving the natural hairstyle. Angles should be different in each part of the head to achieve a natural look.
Before FUE hair transplantation, the use of blood thinners, alcohol and smoking should be stopped. Strong cosmetic substances that are likely to leave residue on the skin should not be used. Hair must be clean during the operation. Before the operation, the hair in the donor area is shortened to 1 mm and the procedure is carried out later.

The area where hair transplantation is performed should not be touched by hand and water for the period specified by the doctor, the application area should be carefully protected for 15 days, and the products recommended by the doctor should be used when the hair needs to be washed.
