Hair transplantation treatments
One of the common problems of millions of people worldwide can be defined as hair loss. Behind the hair loss problem genetic factors, drugs used in the treatment of some diseases, some skin problems, as well as many different causes such as malnutrition, environmental factors, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, hormone problems, stress and depression may lie. When all these causes are eliminated and permanent hair loss and baldness occur, it is possible to benefit from many treatment methods developed in today's medical conditions. One of these is hair transplantation treatments. Hair transplant treatments, which is one of the treatment areas served by Moment Medikal, is a medical method that is used to produce a permanent solution by adding hair to the balding area.
How is hair transplant performed?
Hair transplantation is performed to add hair to the balding area on the patient's head. It is done by removing the hair from the more hairy parts of the scalp or other parts of the body and inoculating the hairless or balding part of the scalp. According to the average of various research results, approximately 60 percent of men and 50 percent of women experience a type of hair loss worldwide. It is often the first step to resort to dermatological treatments or methods that eliminate the source of hair loss, such as vitamin mineral deficiency, dietary habits. Ultimately, the priority for the doctor is to eliminate the factors that cause hair loss. Hair transplantation, on the other hand, is a restoration method. And today, effective results can be obtained by hair transplantation even in large areas without hair thanks to hair transplantation treatments. However, there are some well-known mistakes about hair transplantation and it is of great importance that the patient is fully informed before treatment.
Does hair transplantation completely eliminate the problem?
Before deciding on hair transplantation treatment, which is extremely important to be performed by specialists, the patient should be informed about the following points. Talking about the success of a hair transplantation treatment depends on many factors. If a certain densityis achieved and if the hair looks natural at the end of the transplantation process, it can be said that the transplanting has been successful. The methodsused in hair transplanting treatments, yield nearly 90 percent success rate in some patients. However, there are rates ranging from 50 to 80 percent in the world average. The most important success criteria of hair transplantation treatments are the expertise and experience of the doctor who will perform the treatment, the hair fiber characteristics of the person who will have the hair transplantation, the hair loss rates, the density and quality of the hair in the areas where the hair will be taken, and of course the width of the area to be transplanted.
There is a possibility of hair loss in the area where hair transplantation is performed. Hair transplantation is performed with your existing hair. For this reason, hair transplantation treatment is not performed in areas with widespread hair loss and baldness, loss due to chemotherapy and other drug treatments, and scars caused by injuries. If the probability of success for the patient is deemed high upon the evaluation of the specialist doctor, transplantaion is performed.
What are the hair transplantation methods?
In the simplest terms,in hair transplantation, the hair you have is removed and transferred to the area where you do not have hair. It is usually taken from the back of your head, but it can also be taken from other parts of the body. In hair transplantation treatments, the doctor sterilizes the area where the hair will be taken and uses local anesthesia. In some patients, the patient can be put to sleep by applying sedation.
Your doctor will then perform one of two transplant methods: FUT or FUE
Hair transplantation with FUE Technique
The most modern technique preferred today is called the FUE Technique. In FUE technique, the hair roots are taken one by one and transferred. This technique, which was first used in 2003, is a technique that provides more comfortable and faster results. In the FUE technique, the hair to be planted on the forehead and hairless parts at the top is removed from the nape. The feature of the hair in the nape region is that the hair loss rate is much lower. One of the most important features of the FUE technique is that it does not cause hair loss in the area where the hair is taken because there are more than one follicle in a single hair follicle. With this method, with the help of a cylindrical needle, the hair is removed from the root together with the follicle cells and several hairs can be obtained from one hair root. The attachment and development of the hair strands to the skin is the most critical point and the doctor's expertise is critical at this point.
Hair transplantation with FUT Technique
FUT technique is a method that has been applied since 1990 and this technique is defined as a small surgical operation. In the FUT technique, also known as the strip technique, the scalp is removed by cutting the scalp from the area that is intact and without hair loss. Then, with the help of a microscope, the hair follicles in these strips are separated individually and the transplantation takes place in small channels in the balding area. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia, so the patient does not feel pain during treatment. However, pain may occur later. Depending on the width of the balding area and the number of hair follicles to be transplanted, it is possible for a session to last from 5 to 8 hours. The scalp is expected to heal completely for the next session. FUT treatment is more economical and less time consuming. If the balding area is very wide, FUT treatment is generally preferred.
Recovery period after hair transplantation
The healing period of hair transplantation treatments may vary from person to person. It may take an average of two weeks for the area where the hair is removed and defined as the donor area to heal. It is normal to have crusting on the transplanted area after hair transplantation treatment. Usually, the patient can return to normal life two days after hair transplantation treatments. Usually 2 to 2.5 months after the treatment hair follicles begin to revive and grow hair. It is necessary to wait for a period of 3 to 5 months to evaluate the performance of the treatment.
It is very important to follow the instructions given by the doctor very carefully after the treatment. In this process, the doctor may recommend some solutions and shampoos. So recovery can be accelerated.
