New Hairline Hair Transplantation Center
Hair loss is an important problem encountered by women as much as men today. Simply put, hair loss is part of the renewal process of the hair. 85 to 90% of the hair of a healthy person constantly grows. This is known as the phase of growth, and can last for 2 to 5 years. The remaining 10 to 15% of the hair is in the period of resting. In this period known as the telogen phase, loss of hair occurs while the lost hair is replaced by new hair follicles, and the growth of hair continues in this cycle. Hair loss is in fact failure to grow new hair follicles to replace the ones that are lost in the telogen phase.
Although hair loss is attributable to several reasons, hair loss in men in particular is caused by genetic factors. This is called Androgenetic Alopecia and is characterized by loss of hair follicles as the level of male sex hormone testosterone increases. This loss causes the follicles to be lost permanently without growth of new hair follicles to replace them. At this point, the medicines and lotions that are sold solely for commercial purposes do not work. No matter how advanced our healthcare and medical technology is today, it is not possible to grow new hair follicles.
Hair transplantation is a final and permanent method of treatment that completely remedies the problem of hair loss. Hair transplantation does not generate new hair follicles in replacement of those which are lost. The process only involves transplantation of hair follicles from the donor site to the location where hair loss occurs, which makes it literally transplantation of hair. It is a small surgical operation which is suitable for people of every age provided that the necessary preconditions are fulfilled. At this point, the team that will perform hair transplantation should be specialized and experienced, and it is very important to choose a properly-sterilized and hygienic hospital environment and a fully-equipped operating theater for both general health and for a successful transplantation.
Have enduring hair with a natural appearance with FUE hair transplantation!
The most popular hair transplantation method today is Follicular Unit Extraction – shortly FUE. The operation does not require the use of a scalpel. Therefore, it does not leave any operation mark or scar. FUE involves using micro-motors to remove individual hair follicles called grafts from the region between the two ears or on the nape, where genetically the least amount of hair loss if at all, and placed into the channels that are opened by lateral slit technique using fine-tipped needles.
Another advantage of the FUE method is that the maximum number of grafts is reached in a single session. New Hairline Antalya Hair Transplantation Center can transplant up to 4000 grafts in a single session, which amounts to approximately 9.000 to 12.000 hair strands. The duration of hair transplantation depends on the severity of hair loss. The need for grafting and therefore the duration of the operation increases with the size of the area where hair loss occurs. An operation of hair transplantation generally lasts for 5 to 8 hours. As the head is locally anaesthetized before the operation, the patient does not feel pain during the operation.
What should be paid attention after hair transplantation?
The first several weeks after the operation are very important as a measure of success of hair transplantation. The patient should avoid head traumas, and touching anything directly with his head or anything that may harm the transplantation site such as hitting, for the first 3 days in particular. Potential impacts may harm, move or displace the transplanted follicles. The patient should also pay utmost attention to his sleeping position. He should never sleep on his sides or face down. During the first night after the operation in particular, the patient should be checked on by a relative to ensure correct sleeping position.
During the period of recovery, the patient should wear a hat or a kerchief to avoid the dust and dirt in public areas. The patient should take out the bandana or cap indoors to relieve the sense of pressure caused by the headwear and to apply oxygen to ensure faster recovery. He should also avoid getting into the sea, swimming pools, saunas, or performing heavy works and being exposed to sun. Heavy sportive activities should also be avoided and only milder activities such as walking should be performed. The patient should not have a haircut for the first three weeks. Haircuts using scissors only are allowed by the third week, and any haircut is allowed by the second week, following the operation.
The transplanted hair may be lost within the first month from the transplantation. This is a predictable outcome and there is no need to be anxious. It depends on the physiological characteristics, hair structure, and dietary habits of the patient. The transplanted hair usually grows by the 3rd month. Hair growth may lead to itches or acnes in this period. Most of the transplanted follicles should grow hair by the 8th month. It is possible to have a clear view of the operation results by the end of the first year. Since the donor site is the nape, the transplanted hair shows the characteristics of the nape area and is never lost.
Who can have hair transplantation?
Hair transplantation is suitable for anyone who suffers from male type hair loss. The male type hair loss called androgenetic alopecia grows with the effect of male sex hormone. The cells that generate and feed hair around the hair follicles die with the rise of testosterone in the blood. Hair follicles become thinner, then stop growing, and are lost permanently. Hair transplantation is a final and permanent treatment method in patients who suffer from hair loss attributed to genetic reasons.
How long does an operation of hair transplantation take?
Hair transplantation takes 5 to 8 hours to complete depending on the size of the area of hair loss and the number of grafts needed. As the head is locally anaesthetized before the operation, the patient does not feel pain during the operation. The patient may watch television, read a book, or take a rest or lunch break whenever he wants. It is a very easy operation on the part of the patient.
What are the methods of hair transplantation?
Two different methods called FUE and FUT are used in hair transplantation operations today. FUT involves using a scalpel to cut out a long strip of hair follicles called grafts from the nape of the patient. For this reason, the nape is sutured and operation marks are left on the area. It is a bloody operation that is also disturbing in aesthetic terms. On the other hand, FUE involves the use of a surgical motor with a very fine tip to remove follicles individually. The scalp is not cut or sutured, which makes it relatively short to recover.
