FUE HAIR TRANSPLANTATION
FUE method hair transplantation is the most preferred and rapidly spreading method in the world for the last 20 years. The FUE method is defined as placing grafts one by one into the channels opened in the area of the hair to be transplanted, with the help of special micro needle-alike pens by applying local anesthesia. There are approximately 2-3 hair strands in the collected grafts. Each graft is considered as approximately 2 – 2.5 hair strands. In an average session, 4,000 – 6,000 grafts, ie 8,000 – 12,000 hair follicles, are obtained.
WHAT ARE THE STAGES OF FUE HAIR TRANSPLANTATION?
1- Intake: In the first stage, the grafts are taken one by one with the help of a micro-motor, protecting the hair follicles, between the two ears, called the donor area, from the nape area. At this point, it would be appropriate to share the following information; The reason for the preference of hair in the nape area is that the hair in the nape area does not fall out due to its insensitivity to testosterone. In other words, it eliminates the possibility of spillage after the operation.
2- Sequencing: At this stage, the hair follicles (grafts) taken from the donor area are separated according to the number of roots and taken into a sterile environment in a special solution.
3- Channel Opening: At this stage, channels are opened where grafts will be placed in the bald or sparse area where the transplantation will be made. It is important to open these channels at an angle of approximately 40-45 degrees in accordance with the direction of hair growth to obtain a natural appearance.
4- Transplantation: At this last stage, grafts waiting in solution in a sterile environment are taken and placed one by one into the opened channels.
In the FUE hair transplantation process, there is no incision or scar as in the DHI hair transplantation. After the procedure, scabs occur during the healing process. These scabs shed within an average of ten days.
HOW LONG IS THE FUE METHOD HAIR TRANSPLANTATION DURATION?
➢ The sowing time varies between 6-8 hours on average depending on the width of the open area.
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FUE METHOD AND DHI TECHNIQUE
➢ The FUE method is a more suitable method for hair transplantation in a large area, while the DHI technique allows working in a narrow area, in other words, it is the sub-technique of the FUE method that can be preferred for hair condensation or unshaved transplantation.
➢FUE method steps: Respectively; reception, stringing, grooving, and planting. On the other hand, in the DHI technique, the third stage (grooving), and the fourth stage (planting) are performed simultaneously.
RECOVERY PROCESS AFTER FUE METHOD
Approximately 10 days after the hair transplant, the hair will look like it was cut short. Shock shedding occurs in one month and it becomes an almost undetectable appearance. Following this, in the 5th month, the hair starts to grow slowly and continues to grow in the remaining period.
Since the hair will continue to grow for a year, patience and trust in the team are very important in the hair transplant operation.
Hair transplantation is a very serious surgical procedure. It should be done by experts in a sterile environment with modern technical equipment suitable for hair transplantation. FUE method hair transplantation allows you to have natural and permanent hair when these conditions are met. Of course, fulfilling the responsibilities of the hair transplant person after the hair transplant procedure plays a huge role in the successful conclusion of the operation.
