It will be a matter of people getting a positive impression of you. However, most men have problems with their appearance. Hair is at the top of these problems. Thanks to hair transplantation, there are solutions to almost all other hair problems, especially baldness.
What is Hair Transplantation procedure?
If you want to find a permanent solution hair loss problem, you should consider a solution in hair transplantation. We should state that hair transplantation is a micro surgical operation performed in a hospital environment. In other words, hair transplant can be defined as performing hair transplantation procedures with much less intervention than a classical surgery. Male pattern hair loss is a very common concept medically. For those who suffer from this problem, there is no more effective and permanent solution than hair transplantation. In addition, hair transplantation comes to the rescue those who are complaining of scars or who suffer serious hair loss due to some hair diseases.
The history of hair transplantation is very old. However, we should say that hair transplantation started to be popular in Turkey in the 1990s. While the FUT technique was used for hair transplantation during those years, it should be stated that after 2005, the FUE method was used much more effectively. Although hair transplantation techniques have changed in the past 15 years, it is known that especially the FUE method remains the same except for very fine touches. In conclusion, we should state that the most advanced technique in hair transplantation is FUE.
Thanks to FUE method, people who experience hair loss have the most natural appearance and brand-new hair. In addition, there are multiple reasons for using the FUE technique. First of all, we must say that there is an efficiency rate that reaches one hundred percent. Also, it leaves little trace behind. Rapid recovery is one of the prominent details of this technique. In addition, the efficiency of the operation has increased due to the development of the materials used in the FUE method over the years. This method has multiple alternatives. Although it has a classical FUE micro motor, there are versions known as robotic FUE, DHI hair transplantation and Sapphire FUE.
Each of the FUE hair transplant methods has different features. In FUE hair transplantation method with sapphire tips, it is possible to transplant a large number of hair follicles in just one session. In this method, the channels opened with the use of sapphire material heals in a much shorter time. Also, there are fewer scars than normal. The DHI method is used in hair transplantation methods with a densifying target. More natural and satisfying results are obtained in this method in which Choi needles are used.
We can say that many people are afraid of feeling pain during hair transplantation. However, sedation will be provided under the supervision of an anesthesiologist and local anesthesia during hair transplantation will not be felt in any way. In other words, no pain is felt during hair transplantation procedures. It should be said that this method is extremely reliable, especially for patients with needle phobia.
Finally, we should talk about sedation. Sedation represents the patient’s sleeping stage with sedative drugs that can be adjusted and scaled individually. It can be provided to anyone who wants sedation, which makes the hair transplantation process zero pain. We have to say that it is safe even for children. However, we should consider the request of patients who do not want sedation.

How to do hair transplant? What are the stages of it?
Whatever the method you choose for hair transplantation, you should know that the process is the same in each one. First, the hair follicles are collected. Then channels are opened. In the last stage, follicles are planted.
- First stage, we should start with the harvesting of the hair follicles. FUE method is a method that provides one hundred percent success during the collection of hair follicles. Hair follicles collected one by one with cylindrical needles almost does not cause any damage. Proper needles should be used according to the size of the hair follicles. At this stage, using 0.7mm to 0.9mm needles would be the right decision. The needles must be sharp and a special needle must be used for each patient. In addition, removing the hair according to the angles of the roots is another matter that requires attention. Each of these details is specially planned by the doctor before the operation.
- The second stage during hair transplantation is known as opening channels. We should say that metal slits were used in the past years during the opening of the channels stage. However, with the development of technology, much sharper and smoother sapphire blades are used. By opening the channels with the help of sapphire blades, it becomes much easier to determine the angle and direction of hair transplantation. In addition, thanks to the sapphire blades, recovery is seen in a much shorter time after the canal opening. However, we should be considering to use a special blade for each patient.
- The last stage of the hair transplant process will be the transplantation of the hair follicles as expected. Placing the hair follicles that been collected in the opened channels in the right directions at 40-45-degree angles summarizes this process.
As a result, all three stages during hair transplantation have their own subtleties. At this point, the experience of the team who will perform the procedure is decisive. In other words, for hair transplantation, you should choose a team managed by a doctor who has had previous experience and has been doing this for years.
