The process of transplanting healthy hair follicles to areas where hair follicles are no longer active and balding occurs using microsurgical methods is called hair transplantation. In hair transplantation, the patient’s own healthy hair is added to the lost area. Hair transplantation is planned and implemented completely individually. During the hair transplantation operation, hair follicles that are resistant to loss, usually in the nape of the patient’s neck, are collected and transplanted into the channels opened in the areas where there is thinning or complete hair loss. Aim; It is to give a natural, permanent haired appearance so that it is not obvious that the transplantation has been made in the head area. Hair transplantation is actually a minor surgical operation. For this reason, it is the safest way to do it in a hospital environment by specialist and experienced doctors and team.

In practice, hair follicles taken from the nape of the neck are transplanted to the targeted bald area. These taken hair follicles are called grafts. In rare cases, there is not enough healthy hair on the back of the person’s neck or temple area. In such cases, hair follicles can also be removed from other areas of the person containing hair, such as the arms or chest wall. The application takes a few hours depending on the amount of hair loss. If the bald area is very large, several sessions may be required to complete the treatment.
Usually the intervention is performed under local anesthesia with sedation. After hair transplantation, a special bandage is applied to the head. The person is discharged after 1-2 hours. Although very rare, pain can be controlled with painkillers. Generally, after 3 days of home rest, you can return to work life with your head covered. The first dressing is done on the 5th day.

What is a hairline and how is it determined?
The hairline is a personalized anatomical line. It is determined according to the natural hair border from the area where the forehead texture ends and the hair texture begins. The most important point in hair transplantation is to pay attention to the forehead muscle. The hairline can be adjusted as desired without touching the forehead muscle or damaging the facial muscles. For people with a wide forehead or very empty hair on both sides, the hairline can be changed without touching the forehead line. The desired shape can be made according to the patient’s face type, hair style, previous hair loss pattern, forehead muscle, and the condition of the balding skin. If the patient requests a hair type that is not suitable for him, he is informed about the medical obligations, the anatomical structure of his face and the possible results, and the most suitable front line and hair style are determined.
How is hair transplantation performed?
First of all, the hair tissue and the area to be transplanted are planned. The hair tissue is shaved according to the course of the procedure. Local anesthesia is applied and the hair follicles are collected one by one with microsurgical instruments.
Channels are opened in the desired area, taking into account the direction of hair growth, the angle of hair growth and its density.
The harvested roots are placed into these canals one by one with meticulous and precise work.
The aim throughout the entire operation is; It is to provide a natural, healthy and permanent hair appearance that will not be obvious after the operation. The operation is completed in approximately 6 to 8 hours.
Which methods are used in hair transplantation?
Two methods are used: Sapphire pen and DHI pen. These are planting methods. In both cases, the root harvesting method is called FUE. In other words, FUE is not a hair transplantation method in itself, but a root harvesting method. In the FUE method, roots are taken one by one from the donor area using micromotors. Sapphire and DHI are used as hair transplantation methods. If the DHI method is preferred after the roots are removed, the hair is transferred to the skin with DHI pens. If sapphire is to be used, first, channels are opened with sapphire pens where the roots will be placed, and then the roots are placed in the channels. FUE is a root extraction method. DHI and sapphire are used as transplantation methods.
