What is hair transplantation?
Hair Transplantation is the action of transplanting the hair follicles taken from the back area of the head where hair is dense, to the parts of the head where hair is scarce with an appropriate operation.
Hair Transplant Methods
- FUE is a method which was developed after the FUT method had lost its validity. With the FUE hair extraction method, hair follicles are taken from the donor area between the ears with the help of a specially developed micro motor or extraction needle as small as 0,5 – 0,9 mm.This method has developed quickly; so even though it’s newer than FUT it became more popular in a short time. The most important preference factor for the standard FUE method is that surgical tools are highly developed which enable quick and non-invasive methods for hair follicle extraction.
- In Direct Hair Implant (DHI), hair follicles are removed one after one using very fine very fine extractor with a diameter of 1mm or less. The hairs are then implanted directly on the treatment area using a single-use implanter. After the treatment crusting is observed in the transplanted area within 5-6 days .
What it PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)?
PRP is used for quick healing of the scars and supporting quick hair growth. PRP treatment helps weak hair follicles vulnerable to be loss to gain to be revitalized. In patients to whom a PRP treatment is applied, it has been observed that hair loss is relatively less in the area in the operation areae and the hair grows more strongly. In the hair transplant operation, scars of patients who had PRP support beforehand heal more quickly. After the operation the red spots and scabbed areas disappear quickly and hair growth capacity increases in the area in which the hair is transplanted.
PRP has lots of platelets gained from the blood of the patient. Blood is drawn from the patient before the procedure and PRP is obtained. When the patient’s own blood is used there is no need for measuring the immune response. Also, PRP does not cause any allergic reaction.
How is PRP liquid obtained?
- As in all blood laboratories, 10 cc of blood is drawn from the patient to be treated with PRP.
- Drawn blood is transferred to a special device in a sterile tube for the purposes of obtaining the platelet rich part of blood.
- Blood cells are spun in a centrifuge and the platelet rich cells of the blood is densified.
