Hair transplantation is the process of transplanting the one’s own hair, as natural and permanent as possible, to the areas with hair-loss. Hair loss can negatively affect the psychology of people suffering from this problem. In this sense, hair loss poses an aesthetic concern beyond being a physical disorder. Hair follicles are taken from the area, where they are denser and there is no possibility of hair loss, through special methods, and placed in small holes created in the recipient area. Hair loss is caused by genetic reasons at a rate of 95%. Therefore, unfortunately, cream or oral drug treatments cannot give the desired results. Even though hair transplantation has become more comfortable and faster thanks to developing technology, it is an application that requires a detailed analysis and experience.
How Is Hair Transplantation Done?
Hair transplantation is an important operation which must be carried out in a hospital environment meeting the hygienic conditions. Even, it should be performed by a professional team consisting of doctors and specialist nurses.
There have been plenty of methods known for hair transplantation. This operation takes approximately 4-8 hours. Hair follicles taken from the donor area, the nape area, are transplanted to the previously determined bald area of the person. Before starting hair transplantation, hair regions of the patient are photographed from different angles. Then the hair is shortened with a razor to number 1. After these procedures are completed, the patient is prepared for local anesthesia. The hair in the area closest to the neck, from the back of the head, is coded not to lose.
Hair transplantation can be performed in any patient with hair loss regardless of male or female. In case of hair loss caused by an additional condition such as thyroid disease, cancer, vitamin deficiency, or anemia, these disorders should be treated at first. For the determination of the personalized hair transplantation technique, initially the type of hair loss should be determined and classified. The areas where there is hair loss and where the healthy follicles will be taken are examined and determined in detail. This process provides an understanding of the first parameters considered in determining the hair transplantation technique.
