There are several stages to a hair transplant turkey procedure.
1. The first stage is local anesthesia:
It is injected in the donor area – back of the scalp (oval shaped from the right ear to the left ear), through very thin needles.
After the anesthesia, a serum is injected in order to inflate the skin and facilitate the process of extracting the hair follicles.
The type of local anesthesia injected through needles is frustrating for many people.
Nowadays a modern technique has been developed in which anesthesia is applied through pressure rather than injection,
no needles are used. This is the NFI (Needle-free Injection).
This local anesthesia technique is considered the most advanced in hair transplant turkey, beard transplant, and eyebrow transplant.
2. The second stage is:
A. the hair graft extraction.
When hair transplant in Turkey first began to prosper about 12 years ago, the hair grafts were extracted manually.
This technique was named FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation).
With this method, a strip of skin is cut from the back of the head, and then the hair follicles are extracted individually.
The technique of manual extraction was a qualitative leap in the world of hair transplantation, but the process of hair transplant in turkey took from two to three days,
meaning that there was a long period of time between the extraction and implantation, and so a large proportion of the hair follicles were damaged.
Micro Motor technology for hair follicle extraction
which is considered the best and most advanced An electrical device is used to extract the follicles very quickly,
in which the head of the device contains a tube not exceeding 0.6 mm in diameter that enters the depths of the scalp and pulls the follicles out within one second.
Of course, the follicles are picked out one after the other and at close and balanced distances, so that no effect of the extraction is left after the operation.
The technique of extracting the follicles with Micro Motor, a Sapphire head device:
Hair transplant in Turkey is booming,
as modern and more effective techniques are invented in speeding up healing, and many other things.
Recently, the technique of extraction using a Micro Motor device was invented, but with heads made of sapphire.
The follicles are extracted more smoothly and with greater accuracy, without breaking their roots.
Errors have long been repeated by surgeons,
during the extraction of the hair follicles. When the hair follicle is broken, it is no longer suitable for transplantation.
This modern technique prevents the follicles from breaking, and also prevents unnecessary incisions that occur after the hair follicles are extracted.
This contributes to the re-production of the follicles from the place from which they were extracted.
B. When extracting the hair follicles from the donor area, the follicles are sorted into 4 different categories:
1- Hair follicles containing 1 hair shaft.
2- Hair follicles containing 2 hair shafts.
3- Hair follicles containing 3 hair shafts.
4- Hair follicles containing 4, and occasionally 5 hair shafts.
These hair grafts are placed in a special solution called Hypothermasol, and at a certain temperature in order to preserve them until the next stage,
which is the implantation in the recipient area.
The surgeon will then be picking out the suitable hair graft, to be implanted in the suitable area.
For instance, an experienced surgeon would not implant a hair graft containing 4 hair shafts in the hairline area.
That is because naturally, the hair near the front line area is thinner.
3. In the third stage :
local anesthesia will be repeated but in the recipient area instead.
Afterwards, the inflating serum is also injected in this area in order for the scalp to rise, to avoid harming the tissues and nerves under.
4. In the fourth stage :
When hair transplantation in Turkey first started developing, as previously mentioned, manual FUE technique of extraction was used.
Very thin metal blades with a diameter not exceeding 0.3-0.6 mm,
depending on the thickness of the hair follicle was used to open the canals.
Today, with the development of medicine and technology that in turn brought about radical changes in the world of hair transplant in Turkey,
many techniques have been renovated.
Firstly, the Sapphire Pen technique.
The process of hair transplant in turkey with the Sapphire Pen technique is one of the safest and most reliable procedures in Turkey,
as the recommended technique differs from one case to another.
The technique of hair transplant with the Sapphire Pen provides more
guaranteed results in comparison with the metal blades Before we delve into the knowledge of the technique of hair transplantation by the Sapphire Pen, we must shed light on the terms mentioned in the world of hair transplantation in Turkey.
was named in association with the technique of manual primary extraction, which is originally a thin metal blade used to open the canals.
Therefore, after the invention of the technique of hair transplantation with the Sapphire Pen, it became the oldest technique name.
So in detail, how is it done?
After sorting the hair follicles during extraction from the donor area, they are preserved in the Hypothermasol solution. The doctor then divides the recipient area into equal square-shaped cm2 for many reasons:
1. Direction of the hair follicles
Since each section of hair is angled towards a different direction, some angled downwards, others to the left or right, the canals in the recipient area should not all be opened at the same angle.
Failure to match the appropriate angle with the appropriate section can lead to a non-pleasant appearance.
2. Distances between the hair follicles
When the doctor opens the canals in the recipient area, the distances between them must be taken into consideration, so that no contact occurs between them.
In case contact does occur, both hair follicles will be damaged.
3.Dividing the scalp in cm2
In order to obtain a consistent hair density, the doctor must divide the recipient area into multiple cm2, so that in every cm2, the same number of hair follicles is implanted.
4. Canal depth
When inserting the blade into the scalp, the doctor must take the depth into consideration.
In case the depth is exceeded, it will cause damage to the tissues and nerves under the scalp, and this in turn will lead to infections and of course the failure of the hair transplant operation.
Therefore, the stage of opening the canals must always be performed exclusively by a highly experienced surgeon.
The DHI technique
It is the most advanced technology in the world of hair transplantation. It is conducted using a medical tool named Choi Pen.
In each pen, there is a hollow metal head used to insert the hair follicle into it, to then open the canal and simultaneously implant the hair follicle.
In this technique of hair transplantation,
a higher density of hair is achieved in comparison to traditional techniques.
It is possible to implant approximately 60-70 grafts per cm2. This number exceeds the number achieved by other traditional techniques by about 20-25 grafts per cm2.
And since the opening of the canals and the implantation is done simultaneously, the wound recovery is faster.
DHI technique using Sapphire heads
It is an innovation to the classic DHI technique. The metalhead in the Choi pen is replaced with a Sapphire head. It prevents acidity of wounds and gives a smoother texture to the scalp.
Not only that but it also prevents the redness caused by the canal opening from lasting for a long period of time after the operation.
Leaving 0% risk of any scars.
