Finally, the hair specialist offers a set of instructions to follow to avoid any post-surgery conditions. These instructions are:

Hair transplant patients
Baldness is a problem experienced by both males and females. Today, hair loss is psychologically difficult to accept.Indeed, hair loss treatment through hair transplant concerns males and females equally, with a preference for males.Currently, hair loss is a phenomenon affecting more than 200 million people worldwide.For males, hair loss is equivalent to getting older. Males’ baldness pattern is perceived as a deterioration of health status as well as a substantial loss of physical attractiveness.Sadly, women are also not immune to alopecia manifestations.For females, such aspect can be even more devastating, for alopecia is not socially accepted and is an uncommon phenomenon. Therefore, it makes females an object of more unpleasant attention with awful consequences affecting their self-esteem and own femininity.For these reasons, it is useful, if not necessary, to use the solutions developed over the years to definitively cure this problem, namely through hair transplantation whether it is about hair transplant or eyebrow transplant.
Hair transplant techniques in Turkey
FUT hair transplant
FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) hair transplant in Turkey is a hair transplantation technique that consists of removing a strip of scalp (STRIP) from the donor area which is then sutured. The result of STRIP is usually a very thin scar less than 1 mm wide which can also be hidden under very short hair.This extremely precise and accurate technique minimizes the trauma of hair implant extraction and, in expert hands, also reduces the time between the extraction and the replanting of hair implants; in fact, the shorter the taken-time is, the better graft results will be.Using FUT technique, it is possible to have high percentages of transplanted hair transplants that are far better than those of FUE hair transplant in Istanbul which are much lower.
FUE Hair transplant
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplant in Turkey is a hair grafting technique with direct removal of follicular units.This technique was already used more than 25 years ago by German, Italian and French surgeons as an evolution of the punch technique (the one with doll tufts) and then quickly abandoned in favor of the STRIP technique (FUT) which gave much higher hair recovery rates.FUE hair transplantation in Istanbul consists of removing follicular units from the donor area using smaller circular scalpels than those used for punch technique; this can be done either by hand or by using a motorized rotating system.The follicles are replanted through tiny incisions or channels in the scalp recipient areas. The procedure is carried out quite rapidly, preserving the vitality of the bulbs as much as possible, and promoting their grafting. Indeed, the FUE hair transplant in Turkey normally lasts between 2 to 4 hours, compared to 4 to 6 hours for hair transplants carried out using FUT technique.
DHI hair transplant method
DHI hair transplant in Istanbul actually involves directly implanting grafts extracted from the donor area into the recipient area, avoiding the need to open the canals.DHI method, being an evolution of FUE hair transplant technique, is based on the same principle of hair implant extraction. In hair transplantation using FUE, grafts are extracted from the donor area, then the recipient graft channels area is opened and follicular units are implanted.The creation of micro-channels is no longer necessary under DHI hair transplant technique in Istanbul as grafts are inserted directly into the scalp with a precision instrument called Choi pen (Choi implant pen). Although this procedure takes much longer, final results are much better, offering a natural and pleasant look with a great hair density. Also, the transplanted hair density per square centimeter is higher.Even though such surgical method represents the most advanced method within hair transplantation nowadays, it does not mean it works best for everyone seeking hair transplant; each patient has his own needs, meaning each case must be carefully evaluated by hair specialists in Turkey who can identify the suitable procedures for each patient to stop alopecia.
