The hair follicles located in the nape area behind the two ears on the scalp do not fall out because they are resistant to hormonal and disease-related spills. This area where the hair is genetically protected is the safest donor area for hair transplantation.
The first stage of the operation is the process of numbing the area where the hair will be removed by applying local anesthesia. Since the procedure is performed with regional anesthesia, the patient stays awake during the operation, can watch TV, eat, read newspapers and books, but does not feel pain.
In the second stage, hair follicles are extracted as follicular units with special devices developed for this process. In other words, hair follicles are removed “one by one”. The carefully removed hair follicles are placed in petri dishes prepared under sterile conditions. The hair follicles removed during the period between the removal of hair follicles and their transplantation are stored in these boxes containing various solutions and drugs that enable hair growth. In our clinic, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and special drugs that stimulate various hair follicles are used for this procedure.
In the third stage, channels are opened in the area to be planted. The direction and frequency of the channels is the most important factor affecting the success of hair transplantation. The small size of the canal allows the hair follicles to be fully seated in the skin. The direction of the channels should be parallel to the natural hair directions. Hair that is not transplanted at the appropriate frequency and distribution results in unsightly results. In our clinic, this procedure is done meticulously. By looking at your previous photos and the structure of your skin, the appropriate angle is given to the channels. Another important issue at this stage is the determination of the front hairline. A well-planned front hairline determines the success of hair surgery. Because an ill-planned front line can negatively affect the appearance of the person, as well as negatively affect his psychology in his future life. It also leads to a second repair hair surgery. The front hairline should be symmetrical and harmonious. It should be proportional to the person’s face shape and anatomical structure. In addition to these features, it should be determined in accordance with the way the hair is shed. In our clinic, this procedure is performed in the presence of scientific literature and by making aesthetic measurements.
In our clinic, nothing is closed to the transplanted area after the operation. The bandage in the area where the hair is taken is removed under your control on the first day after sowing. After removing the bandage, there is no trace of the operation when viewed from the outside. Medications that allow the area to heal quickly and prevent the development of infection are prescribed and their use is explained.
The patient can go home immediately after the operation. There is no washing for the first 3 days after the procedure. 3 days after the procedure, the first washing is done in our clinic.
The transplanted hair starts to shed 3-4 weeks after the operation. The transplanted hair follicles begin to grow and grow again over time. This process takes between 3-6 months.
