What is hair transplantation?
Hair Transplantation is the action of transplanting the hair follicles taken from the back area of the head where hair is dense, to the parts of the head where hair is scarce with an appropriate operation.
Hair Transplant Methods
FUE is a method which was developed after the FUT method had lost its validity. With the FUE hair extraction method, hair follicles are taken from the donor area between the ears with the help of a specially developed micro motor or extraction needle as small as 0,5 – 0,9 mm.
This method has developed quickly; so even though it’s newer than FUT it became more popular in a short time. The most important preference factor for the standard FUE method is that surgical tools are highly developed which enable quick and non-invasive methods for hair follicle extraction.
Today, micro motors used manually or electronically have taken the place of hand operated needles. These devices allow non-problematic extraction of hair follicles. Operation time is reduced from 2 days to a mere 3-4 hours and provides great convenience for the patients. FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a hair transplantation method which is widely used due to its advantages. FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is the first method that comes to mind in the hair transplantation field.
This has an undeniable reason: FUE hair transplantation is a painless operation in which the patient can go back to their normal life in a short time and this method does not include any cuts or stitches. No visible, permanent scarring can be seen in the donor area where hair follicles are extracted. Also with this method it is possible to transplant body hairs.
