Hair loss, which is a common condition in men, may develop due to aging or various diseases. It does not create an aesthetically pleasing image and may negatively affect social life. Thanks to the modern techniques developed today, hair transplantation can be performed and a much more aesthetic appearance can be achieved.

What is Hair Transplantation?

Hair loss, which is a cosmetic problem, is mostly a condition that occurs in men, but it can also be seen in women from time to time. A normal shedding is between 50 and 100 hairs per day. However, in cases where the shedding is much more than these numbers, the situation should be examined by a specialist. Today, although PRP or laser treatments reduce hair loss to a minimum, hair transplantation is required for a permanent solution in people with intense shedding.

In cases where the hair is thinning or completely bald, hair transplantation helps to gain a natural and aesthetic appearance. In hair transplantation, hair follicles that are resistant to shedding are collected from the nape area and transplanted into channels opened in areas where there is little or no hair. Hair transplantation, which is a microsurgical operation, is performed under local anesthesia.

Lip aesthetics is the name given to all the operations that are planned according to the needs of the person and include more than one technique.

How is Hair Transplantation Performed?

The procedures applied during hair transplantation differ according to the method to be applied. For example, in some methods, patients need to be shaved, while in some methods, shaving is not required. In general, the steps followed in all methods are as follows:

  • The donor area where the hair follicles will be taken is prepared for processing,
  • Hair follicles are collected one by one through the FUE engine, the roots should not be damaged during this process,
  • These roots are called grafts and each of them contains 2 or 3 hairs,
  • The channels where the roots will be placed are opened,
  • In order to maximize the rate of hair regrowth, the channels must be opened at the right size and at the right depth, at the same time, it must be in harmony with the size or length of the hair follicle and the channel angle must be adjusted correctly for a natural appearance,
  • The collected roots are placed one by one in the prepared canals at an angle of 40 to 45 degrees and the operation is terminated.

These stages may differ according to the different methods used in hair transplantation. Although the FUE method is the most up-to-date and frequently used method in hair transplantation, different methods can be used when deemed necessary.

What are Hair Transplant Methods?

With Choi pens, both the graft collection rate and the success of the operation are at a high level. There are no procedures such as incision or channel opening. In other words, there is no scar on the head after the procedure. For this reason, the time to return to normal life is also short. There is no obligation to cut the hair in the DHI method, and people with long hair can also benefit from the DHI method. In the DHI method, which is applied in two stages, both the hair gains an intense appearance and the quality of the hair is increased.
