Hair Transplant

FUE TECHNIQUE

The hair transplantation procedure with the FUE method, despite being announced by Dr. Woods as “Wood Technique” in Australia, since he did not disclose details of this planting method, he has not received this name. In 2002, Dr. Rassman and Dr. Bernstein announced this method to the world of science, including details. Unlike the FUT method, it is possible to obtain stem cells from anywhere in the body with the FUE method.

In the FUE hair transplant method, the areas identified as donor areas are numbed by local anaesthesia. After numbing the area, a specialist separates hair follicles individually with the help of a tool with a slightly smaller tip of 1 mm diameter. This step is crucial for the survival of the roots to stay healthy and to be able to stay where they are planted after the operation. This separation is done on a piece-by-piece basis until the needed number is reached. Separated hair roots are kept in a special solution until the planting is started to keep them alive and healthy. After the harvesting is completed, the area where the hair implantation will be performed is first injected with local anaesthesia to numb it like it is done in the FUT method and then perforated. The hair follicles are placed into the drilled holes one by one. With the completion of this surgical step, the FUE hair transplant method is completed.
The advantage of the FUE method is that it does not require a piece of skin from the relevant part to be removed and the stem cells can be worked on individually. In the FUT method, since the hairy skin part is taken is stitched back together, it leaves a scar even if it is a very thin line.

HAIR TRANSPLANTATION TECHNIQUES​

 

Hair transplants are done by FUT and FUE methods.

 

FUT Technique
 

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a surgical procedure where hair is transplanted from the permanent zone, the area in the back and sides of the scalp where hair is more resistant to balding, to the bald or balding areas of the scalp. This is accomplished using naturally-occurring groups of 1, 2, 3, or 4 hairs, called follicular units. After the patient’s scalp is anaesthetized, the doctor removes a strip of tissue from the donor area, an area within the permanent zone, and, once extracted, the donor strip is cut into many individual follicular units using microscopic dissection techniques. As these follicular unit grafts are being prepared, the doctor makes tiny holes in the scalp, called recipient sites, where the grafts are placed.

The arrangement and positioning of these follicular unit grafts determine the aesthetic qualities of a hair transplant, and so this arrangement must be decided on a case-by-case basis, depending on the patients’ history of hair loss and the likelihood of future hair loss. Since follicular unit transplants mimic the way hair grows in nature, the results, in expert hands, will look completely natural and be indistinguishable from one’s original hair.

One of the most important aspects of FUT hair transplant surgery is stereo-microscopic dissection. This allows follicular units to be isolated from the donor strip without being broken up or damaged. During graft dissection, it is critical that the whole follicular unit is kept intact as this will maximize its growth. Intact follicular units will also give the most fullness to the hair restoration, as they contain the full, natural complement of 1-4 hairs.

In the FUT technique, once the local anaesthesia has been applied to the donor area, grafts are taken as a section from the region, and then it is closed with a suture. With this technique, the healing period takes longer and it leaves a visible scar in the donor area.

FUE Technique
 

Follicular Unit Excision (FUE), formerly called Follicular Unit Extraction, is a method of extracting, or “harvesting,” donor hair in a follicular unit hair transplant procedure. In FUE hair transplant surgery, an instrument is used to make a small, circular incision in the skin around a follicular unit, separating it from the surrounding tissue. The unit is then extracted (pulled) directly from the scalp, leaving a small open hole.

This process is repeated until the hair transplant surgeon has harvested enough follicular units for the planned hair restoration. This process can take one or more hours and in more than one session, may be accomplished over two consecutive days. The donor wounds, approximately 1-mm in size, completely heal over the course of seven to ten days, leaving tiny white scars buried in the hair in the back and sides of the scalp.

This method of donor harvesting, removing follicular units one-by-one directly from the scalp, is what differentiates the FUE hair transplant from a traditional Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT), where the donor’s hair is removed from the scalp in one thin, long strip and then subsequently dissected into individual follicular units using a stereo-microscope.

Before the grafts are harvested, tiny “recipient sites” are made in the balding area of the scalp using a fine needlepoint instrument. The follicular units are then placed into the recipient sites where they will grow into healthy hair-producing follicles. The creation of recipient sites and the placing of follicular unit grafts are essentially the same in both FUE and FUT procedures. The difference lies in the appearance of the donor area and in the quality and quantity of grafts obtained with each technique.

In the FUE technique, grafts collected and transplanted into the needed area one by one. It does not leave a scar on the donor area because it does not require stitches. So the FUE technique has become quite popular in recent years. After seven days of recovery, the procedure is complete without any trace on the skin.

Who is a suitable Candidate for Hair Transplant?

The most simple answer to the question is simply the ones who have hair problems. However, you also need to fit into some criteria to get the operation. Among these, most important ones are; age, diabetes, healthy area to be planted and enough donor area to harvest. Apart from these, it is also important to know why you experience hair problems.

Let’s examine the answers of the questions “Who Can Have Hair Transplant” or “Who Should Prefer Hair Planting”. At this point, we can understand who can have the operation with the most advanced technique of hair transplantation, FUE method.

 

Who Can Have Hair Transplant With FUE Technique?

The main advantage of the FUE technique is that it leaves no scars due to stitching after the procedure. Therefore;

  • Even the patients who use their hair quite short prefer this method, since there is no visible scar left after the procedure. In case the patient shaves the hair, quite small spots may be vaguely noticeable. This is related to the direction of hair growth after the process. In patients who preferred the FUE technique, no trace is left after the healing process.

  • The FUE method is preferred with younger patients since there is less space and their future hair loss cannot be determined.

  • In patients who previously used FUT method, the second transplant session can be done with FUE method since the skin is sensitive. Thus, new hair roots can be reached without damaging the previous ones.

  • The FUE method can be applied to close the stitched area harvested with the FUT technique.

  • Male hair loss (Androgenic)

  • Female hair loss

  • Hair loss due to burns

  • Scars from accidents and surgeries (such as brain, facelift operation)

  • Regional hair loss due to past infection

  • Congenital regional hair loss

  • Traction alopesisi

HAIR DENSITY


Normal hair density – in individuals not suffering from hair loss – is somewhere between 80-100 follicular units per square centimetre of the scalp. Thinning is not visually obvious until approximately 50% of the native density has shed. This means transplanting between 45-55 follicular units per square centimetre during hair restoration procedures is normally sufficient.

Implanting at densities of 80-100 follicular unit per square centimetre (“normal” hair density) is usually never done. This happens for several reasons: 1. because it is not necessary and wastes finite grafts; 2. because implanting at this density may overwhelm the blood supply and cause shock loss in the surrounding native hairs; 3. because severe damage or diversion of the scalp blood supply can potentially cause necrosis or other serious issues.

Because of this, the maximum density achievable with hair transplant surgery is usually somewhere below natural hair density. While most surgeons will transplant somewhere between 45-65 grafts per square centimetre, some will implant at slightly higher densities. These surgeons will only do so when they are certain they will not overwhelm the scalp blood supply or cause excessive shock loss.

One of the most important issues that must be taken into consideration when transplanting hair is hair density. The hair must be planted with density and thickness in volume equivalent to the natural hair density of the patient.

The patient’s expectancy should also be taken into consideration while adjusting the hair density. The hair of the person to be transplanted must be carefully examined by the doctor before the operation. After all these steps, the hair density to be applied can be decided.

TREATMENT PROCESS

We use the last method ever used for hair transplant (FUE method), with minimal pain no leaving scars, professional work. (The transplanted hair guaranteed for life).

The surgery starts with a haircut and the extraction of the hair follicles from your donor area and completes with the insertion of the hair follicles into your scalp on the needed areas. Hair follicles are extracted from the donor area homogeneously so the donor site will not be noticeable after the surgery. Individual follicles are extracted under local anaesthesia by a microblade using tiny punches of between 0.6mm and 0,7mm in diameter. There are no incisions, but small punches by the microblade so there won’t be any scarring, pain is minimized and the recovery time is fairly short (less than a week). Above 95% of the transplanted hair will grow and results are permanent because transplanted hair is not subject to the effects of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the hormone causing hair. The skills demonstrated by the trichologists are key to the success of the procedure, especially while extracting the follicles without damaging the hair and planting the hair with the right density and at the right angle to the surface of your scalp to achieve a natural look.

Post-operation expectations

Day 2; The patient’s hair should be washed gently by our specialists, partial pain and numbness may be felt (The washing process should be processed every day by the patient from 7 to 10 days).

 

Day 3 to 4; Mild redness. Swelling on the forehead, around the eyes and on the upper cheek can be seen, laying down on the back and application of ice on the areas will help cooling it down.

Day 7 to 10; The grafts are now fully inserted into the scalp and the scabs are cleared. Hair can now be gently shampooed with normal shampoo.

 

Week 2 to 4; The hair will be starting to fall gradually.

 

Month 1 to 3; Some pimples may appear, due to the hair preparing itself to grow. The feeling of numbness or burning in the donor area may continue.

 

Month 3; The hair will start to grow.

 

Month 6 to 9; The growth of the transplanted hair is more noticeable.

 

Month 12; Full result of hair growth on the front area of the head.
