hair transplant

In the modern world, more and more women and men face the problem of irreversible hair loss in certain areas of the head.  Stress is often the trigger for the processes that lead to hair loss.  But even after the stress factor ceases to act, the hair is often not restored, due to the formation of areas where there are no living bulbs and can no longer appear.

To answer the question of whether a transplant will be effective in each case, a specialist consultation is necessary. In some cases, the problem is solved by therapeutic methods, in other cases, hair transplantation is combined with medication or topical treatment.  In some cases, transplantation is contraindicated, as it can lead to increased hair loss and hair loss in other areas of the head.

The hair transplant procedure in CatchLife aesthetic clinic in Turkey, lasting 4-8 hours, is completely painless and solves the problem of hair loss.

Types of  hair transplantation:

FUE

is a non-surgical, seamless transplantation of follicles taken from donor zone using a special tool - "pancha"

HFE

manual non-surgical transplantation of single follicles, withdrawn from the donor zone using a special microtube (micropancha)

FUT

is an operable flap method of transplantation, in which in the occipital region, a skin flap is removed and divided into grafts

Transplantation is carried out in the area of ​​the temporal, frontal and occipital parts (crown).  The most common reason why patients turn to specialists is baldness in the forehead, temples and crown.  The indications for hair transplantation on the head using the FUE method are:

  • Androgenetic alopecia – thinning of hair with their subsequent irreversible loss, while the frontal and parietal parts of the head are noticeably thin (up to complete baldness).  The reason for such alopecia is the influence of androgens        
  • Alopecia areata – multiple foci of alopecia, eventually merging into large areas.  The reason is a genetic predisposition      
  • Cicatricial alopecia – the result of a traumatic effect on the hair follicles
  • Inflated anterior growth line, deep “bald patches”, including due to a hereditary cause

Other indications include past inflammatory diseases, hormonally or genetically determined rare vegetation, and the desire to have a higher hair density with no dropout problem.

FUE hair transplantation is the most advanced method of modern transplantation.  Compared to other scalp hair transplantation techniques, the FUE technique has a number of significant advantages.

ADVANTAGES

Hair transplantation can be performed at any stage of alopecia.  A lot depends on the quantity and density of the patient’s donor material, the quality of the hair, and the mobility of the skin.

How to prepare for hair transplant in CatchLife Aesthetic clinic in Turkey

First of all, each patient comes to a consultation with professional doctors to talk about the desired result and get answers to all their questions.  The desired hairline to be restored is discussed with the patient.  The doctor determines exactly how many grafts are recommended for a particular case, talks about transplantation methods,and shows the results of other patients before and after with the same number of grafts and the quality and density of hair as the patient’s.

Together with the doctor, the patient chooses the desired transplantation method.

 If according to the results of the consultation, it was not possible to identify contraindications for transplantation, the patient must adhere to a number of rules:

Hair transplantation process

Local anaesthesia is used to relieve pain during FUE surgery.  At the first stage, donor material is taken.

The choice of the donor zone is one of the main factors determining the result of the procedure.  As a rule, the occipital part of the head is chosen as a donor, since this zone is characterized by constant growth of dense hair and complete resistance to alopecia.  

Hair transplanted from other viable donor areas retains its original characteristics, so they are not very suitable for transplanting into the head area.

With the help of a “punch” (a rotating mechanism with a diameter of 0.5 to 5 mm), follicles are removed from the back of the head.  At the second stage, microscopic punctures are made in the receiving area (if the grafts are small) or incisions that do not require suturing.  Hence the characteristic of the procedure – “non-surgical”.

 Then grafts are placed into the punctures (or incisions) using tweezers.  The duration of the operation takes from 5 to 8 hours, the duration depends on the degree and size of the baldness area.

Recovery period after hair transplant in Turkey

Rest is recommended after the operation.  It is necessary to sleep in a position in which the transplanted hair will not come into contact with any surfaces.  In the first days after the procedure, pain medication may be recommended.  The patient may experience itching and a feeling of stiffness in the muscle tissue in the neck.

This is a normal reaction of the body, caused by the activation of the functions of the transplanted hair follicles, the normalization of the lymph flow and active tissue healing.  All unpleasant symptoms disappear after 2-5 days.  Within 7-10 days after the operation, it is necessary to completely exclude physical activity and alcohol consumption and prolonged exposure to the sun.  It is not recommended to swim in the pool or the sea, steam in the bath or sauna.
