Hair loss, or alopecia, is a common problem that affects both men and women and can be caused by stress, diseases, some medical treatments and genes. While some of these factors are temporary or can be reversed, many suffer permanent hair loss that can lead to self-confidence issues. Hair transplantation surgery as an effective and permanent solution can help men and women suffering from baldness or thinning hair.
Since its development in the early 2000’s and introduction in 2005 FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is still the most advanced technique in hair transplantation. This method basically involves the removal of individual hair follicle units directly from the donor area one at a time, rather than from an excised strip that is subsequently dissected into follicular units as it is conducted with the FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) technique which is greatly outdated and has a historical value only. Compared to the FUT technique, FUE holds the benefits of no linear scarring in the donor area as well as a more rapid and comfortable postoperative recovery for patients. Despite the overall increase in surface area of donor scarring with FUE compared with traditional strip harvests in FUT sessions, the decreased visibility of scarring within the donor area allows patients to wear their hair relatively short after undergoing FUE.
Today FUE is still regarded as the gold standard technique for hair restoration, providing natural looking hair to people experiencing hair loss.
In transfers, the most preferred thing is hair follicles that are at the back of the head. In transfers, there are some differences between men and women. For example, in men, the hairs on the back of the head DHT (dhidro testosterone) hormones are completely insensitive.
In women, the situation is different. In contrast to men, women have not got poured feature in any area. Hair losss is a common form of loss in women. Therefore, hair transplants made in men have higher success rate than women. The most important factor that should be known is that the transplanted hairs can be shed sometimes due to hereditary reasons.
So, this leads to false information, common errors. In hair transplantation, procedures should necessarily be done by experts. There should be enough hair in donor area, neck of the person that will have hair transplantation in order to be successful.

For those who applied our hospital for hair transplantation firstly get various tests to determine the quality of the hair which is going to be planted. The factors such as the hair density, the quality of the raw material of keratin in the hair, and the durability of the hair is extremely important. By looking at the results, the number of the grafts which are going to be taken are decided. In DHI method, a special tool which is called Choi Pen is used. Hairs are taken and transplanted by means of this pen.
Thanks to DHI, hair is transferred to the new area as ready to grow. During hair transplantation, not only the hair roots, but also the fat that are necessary for hair growth and the outer membrane which provides protection of the root are also transferred with hair. In DHI hair transplant, healing process is shortened.
Sapphire FUE (FUE performed with Sapphire blades)
As a permanent cure for hair loss, this method is very exclusive and used in a very limited number of clinics worldwide. Instead of making the slits to transplant the hair follicles with steel scalpels, the Sapphire technique uses instruments whose blades are made of sapphire to facilitate the opening of the microchannels in the receiving area.
Thanks to these new blades, fewer crusts are formed in the post-operative period as the channels in the receiving area are smaller than usual. In addition, there is less risk of damaging the transplant area, since the channels that open are the same width as the hair follicles, speeding up the recovery process up to 2 times more.
