What is FUE hair transplantation?
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is one of the first methods that come to mind when you say hair transplantation. The feature of the fue method is that there is no incision in the scalp, which gives an advantage both during the operation and during the healing process. In addition, the fact that there will be no scars and incisions after the operation also increases the preference for patients.
What are the stages of the fue method?
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. After the area where the hair to be transplanted will be removed is prepared for the procedure, the hair roots in the appropriate state are collected one by one. Root collection is performed with incision ends less than 1 mm (between 0.6 mm-0.8 mm) through the fue motor. The follicles taken (graft ) contain 3-4 hairs. At this time, it is very important that the roots are not damaged. Since thousands of Roots will be removed from the donor area during hair transplantation, the small tip that will be used affects the healing process of the area. For the October process, channels need to be opened very carefully. Opening a channel is a process that requires at least as much precision and experience as collecting roots.
Another important issue is the angle of the canal where the hair follicle will be transplanted. The angles, which are the biggest factor in capturing natural hairstyle, should be given differently in each area of the head. Otherwise, the hair will not get the desired shape. Another factor for capturing naturalness is that the hairline is correctly determined. The forehead area and the area where the hair begins should be calculated with the correct proportions.
After Hair Transplantation
After hair transplantation, the person should go to the clinic where the operation is performed for dressing the bandaged part and first washing, and not interfere with the hair itself. Lying on your back position should be selected for 1 Week, rubbing and scratching should not be done in the October Area. Again, sexual intercourse should be avoided during this time. For 1 month, you should stay away from baths, saunas, pools, seas and heavy sports activities, and not be exposed to direct sunlight. Washing hair should be started absolutely from the day the doctor informs you. This is on average 3 after the first wash was done in the clinic. it can be said as a day. Hair should be washed with warm water, avoid excessive hot or excessive cold water. Care lotion and shampoo recommended by the doctor should be used for the first 2 weeks. Hair should never be rubbed in the October area when foaming, hair should be rinsed after the shampoo foams slightly. Drying should be done in a warm setting and at a distance with the help of a hair dryer, never rub with a towel. Towels should only be used to remove intense wetness from the skin in the form of light suppression. A solution, jelly, etc. outside of the hair, outside of the doctor’s advice should not be used.
