Hair Transplant Options
Having a hair transplant is a lifelong investment, which ensures you look and feel your best. Hair transplants provide the individual with a permanent solution to hair loss which provides a completely natural-looking result. With modern hair transplants you are unable to distinguish transplanted hair from the natural growth. There are a number of hair transplant options which will help you to look and feel the way you used to in no time! The most popular ones are;
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Hair Transplant
FUE hair transplant is the most modern form of hair transplant and is considered the gold standard of hair transplant techniques because it is minimally-invasive. The FUE hair transplant follows a detailed process where hair follicles are extracted from the back of the head. The hair transplant treatment is carried out at our Surgical Facility in Istanbul. During the procedure, patients are awake with local anaesthesia used to number the patient’s scalp and individual hair follicles are removed from the donor area with a micro-punch. The follicles are then prepared into grafts and the medical surgeon places them into the recipient area. There is no stiches needed for this technique and the recovery is quick, which enables patients to return to their normal routine in a few days.
FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant)
The FUT method has been used for many years and is an excellent option for patients with a more advanced hair loss. As with FUE, this method is a minor surgery which only requires local anaesthetic and can be performed in one day. The follicles are harvested by removing a narrow strip of skin from the back of the scalp- this method allows an increased number of grafts to be created compared to FUE, however the healing process is slightly longer.
What happens after surgery?
After surgery, patients may experience some mild swelling as well as some potential scabbing. With the correct aftercare, and following the recommendations by the medical professionals, this will soon pass. After a few weeks, the implanted hairs will fall out and replaced by new hair growth. To see the full result achieved, this will take around a year. This is well worth the wait and customers who have under gone the hair transplant technique have described it as life changing!
