Modern hair transplant operations (Follicular Unit Technique-FUE)
To make a short description, hair transplant operation consists of extracting hair follicles from the back of the scalp and inserting them on the sites of hair thinning. It may be described as a sort of relocation operation, too.
The hair on the posterior scalp consists of donor dominant hairs which have the ability for growing for a lifetime. These follicles do not lose their capacity of growing hair after being planted on the sites of hair thinning. The dominant donor site comprises the scientific foundation of hair transplant.
Any individual with an adequate amount of donor hair follicles on the posterior scalp is a suitable candidate for hair transplant. While many of the patients who experienced hair thinning did not qualify as suitable candidates for hair transplant in the past, almost everybody who has a hair lossproblem can have a hair transplant operation today thanks to the development of modern techniques and the developing perception of hair transplant as a sort of art.
Nowadays, the purpose of FUE hair transplant is not limited to the growth of hair from the transplanted hair follicles; a natural looking result is aimed, too. Nobody wants it to be apparent that they have undergone a hair transplant operation.
With the great breakthroughs that took place within the last few years, the procedures that resulted in a patched appearance, an appearance that resembled paving stones or looked like a grass head were replaced by transplantation of follicles containing a single hair shaft, and micro- and mini-graft procedures.
Use of gentler and thinner hair follicles and development of more sophisticated, novel surgical equipment has made it easier for surgeons to perform successful hair transplantations specific to the individual, which result in a natural appearance.
Use of those follicles containing a single hair shaft gives a natural and smooth transition at the hairline. Creating a new hairline always requires surgical experience and artistic capabilities. If you observe a person who does not experience hair thinning, you will easily realize that the hairline consists of very thin and gentle hair shafts, it does not continue as a straight line and the hair follicles get thicker towards the front part.
The side effects of modern hair transplant methods include mild pain and discomfort following the operation, and in rare cases, a mild swelling in the eye contour area and red spots and scabs on the recipient site that last about a week may be seen. Bleeding, infection or scars are almost never experienced. Modern hair transplant surgery is a surgical operation which is comfortable for the patient, which gives predictable results and satisfies the patient.
Hair loss is a ongoing process that takes a lifetime. If the hair loss does not stop and if the person desires to have denser hair, repeated hair transplantations can give the desired result. A great number of hair follicles are obtained within a single session by modern hair transplant techniques; therefore a smaller number of operations are required in order to achieve the desired result.
What does hair transplant mean?
In the broadest sense, hair transplant comprises the epidermal extraction of hair follicles genetically resistant to balding from that zone of the posterior scalp between the ears, and the epidermal transplantation of these follicles on the anterior scalp where hair is expected to grow.
