Hair Transplant Surgery
All that comes to your mind when you think of FUE hair transplant
surgery is the major inconvenience associated with the surgery, which you had recently heard about from one of your friends who had this surgery. However, let me tell you something different now ..to modern FUE hair transplantation techniques,
the technique of local anesthesia without needles has been reached, which is done under the supervision of a doctor, through this technique, you will not feel any pain during local anesthesia before starting the hair transplant surgery and thus you will feel completely comfortable Free from pain and discomfort.
This technique helps our patients to relax and comfort, especially those who suffer from needle phobia,thus we have eliminated the minimum pain that was associated with surgery.
These are some of the questions that we receive daily from people who want to have hair transplant surgery, so here we will answer all questions related to anesthesia
1- What is anesthesia?
2- Should I receive local anesthesia for hair transplant surgery?
3- Is it possible to perform general anesthesia to perform hair transplant surgery?
1- Anesthesia is a state of calm, relaxation, or sleep in cases of general anesthesia, under the administration of some of the necessary medicines and drugs that are under the supervision of a doctor, after which the patient’s condition and the extent of the effect of these drugs are monitored and their quantities vary according to the condition of each patient.
2- Anesthesia is a safe and effective method, so there is nothing to worry about because the pain associated with anesthesia has been completely eliminated, and anesthesia cannot be dispensed before FUE hair transplant surgery, because you will feel pain and discomfort.
3- General anesthesia cannot be performed to perform FUE hair transplant surgery, because hair transplant surgery, as we mentioned previously, is a simple procedure as if you are at the dentist, as in the event of general anesthesia you will be accompanied by severe head pain after the anesthesia is removed, which is inconsistent with surgery instructions FUE Hair transplant, and other discomfort and headaches that arise after it.
In local anesthesia, you will not feel any pain after the completion of the FUE hair transplant surgery, but sometimes this is rare, you feel some slight headaches, but it goes away immediately when you take the pain reliever that we give you.
Do FUE hair Transplants Really Work?
FUE hair transplantation technique is characterized by that it gives a natural look and density, does not leave annoying scars after the procedure, and is the ideal solution to get rid of baldness and hair loss problems.
FUE technique provides patients with a faster recovery, as they can return to their daily work and life on the third day, and people can return to their countries only two days after a hair transplant surgery.
ClinMedica guarantees the growth of 95% of the transplanted hair follicles, as we contract with the most skilled doctors and specialists with experience of up to 18 years in hair transplantation.
What are the basics of FUE hair transplantation in Turkey?
FUE hair transplant surgery can be performed for people between the ages of 20 to 55 years, and FUE hair transplant surgery is done in Turkey for foreign people with ease and simplicity, as it takes only three days to perform the procedure.
As the duration of FUE hair transplant surgery ranges between 5 to 8 hours, this period varies according to the number of implanted hair follicles.
To prevent complications for people who undergo FUE hair transplantation , the clinic is equipped with the latest devices used in large hospitals.
FUE hair transplant is performed under the full supervision of the doctor and with three nurses, as the doctor’s primary task is in the most important stage, which is to open the incisions in the recipient area.
We receive many questions after the completion of the FUE hair transplant surgery, the most important of which is when will I get the result?
Hair growth varies significantly among people, as some people grow their hair quickly, others very quickly, some slowly, and others very slowly.
Therefore, the transplanted hair follicles will grow after at least 6 months, and in some people, it can last up to 9 months, others up to 12 months, and others up to 18 months.
As the transplanted hair follicles go through several stages after implantation:
The relocation phase:
As the hair follicles move from the back of the head to the front and this causes a bit of shock until they begin to adapt to the new location and this happens in the first month,
and at this stage, all the hairs fall out from inside the hair follicle so that the hair follicle remains under the scalp until it prepares for the second stage.
Starting stage hair production:
This stage begins in the third month after the hair transplant surgery after the hair follicles have stabilized and acclimated to their new location,
it begins here to produce hair and it may take 45 days until it begins to appear gradually until you get the final result.

Stages Of Hair Transplant
The hair transplantation process goes through several stages, namely:
1- Consultation with the surgeon:
the surgeon draws the hair transplant plan by identifying the forehead lines and the lines of the donor area.
2- Preparing for surgery:
The head is completely sterilized before starting with local anesthesia.
3- Hair follicle extraction:
It is done by the FUE method, where the hair follicles are extracted one by one, and the hair follicles are sorted according to the hairs and placed in a special solution to preserve them until they are implanted.
4- Opening the incisions (channels):
This stage is done by the surgeon exclusively because it is considered the most important stage of hair transplant surgery.
5- Hair follicle transplantation:
Hair follicles are implanted in the recipient area inside the channels that the surgeon opened.
6- Completion of the surgery:
At this stage, the donor area is bandaged, and plasma is injected that stimulates hair follicles and accelerates wound healing quickly.
7- Washing hair after surgery:
It is done exclusively on the third day after surgery, and it should last for 10 days, using a specific method for washing the head.
How FUE And Grafts Hair Transplant Surgery is Performed?
FUE hair transplantation surgery procedure in shares several techniques in one basic, namely:
- Extracting hair follicles from the donor area
- Making incisions in the bald area called (channels)
- Transplanting hair follicles into the channels
- Extracting hair follicles from the donor area
The hair follicles are extracted from the area behind the ears, which is what is called the donor area because the hair follicles in it are genetically resistant to baldness and this is for all people, the FUE technique, which is the newest technique after its annoying old FUT counterpart that used to leave a large scar behind the head,
FUE surpasses it as through this technique the hair follicles are extracted from their roots one by one using a device called micromotor, and despite this, it requires high skill so that any defect during the extraction process leads to damage to the hair follicle and thus this bulb will not grow in the place of its cultivation.
The micromotor extraction device carries hollow heads that are implanted in the depths of the hair follicle to extract it from the roots,
and the sizes of these hollow heads vary between 0.7 mm and 0.8 mm and 0.9 mm for the follicles that bear one or two hairs, as for the follicles that bear 3 and 4 And 5 feet bristles change the hollow needle up to 1 mm in diameter.
Of course, these heads are used only once for each patient, to ensure that the infection is not transmitted, although we do all precautionary measures such as blood tests, surface sterilization, etc., in the end, prevention is necessary.
Sometimes in people who have FUE hair transplant surgery, procedure who have curly hair, here we use hair follicles to extract curved hollow heads which are u-graft for easy extraction of hair follicles, which contribute to not damaging the hair follicles during the extraction
All these matters are planned by the supervising physician for each patient before starting an FUE hair transplant surgery.
Making incisions in the bald
Incisions are made in the recipient area, or what is called (channel opening) using steel blades in the classic technique FUE, which is made during the opening of the channels, which is done by an FUE hair transplant surgeon with high experience,
Taking into account several factors during the opening of the channels, namely
- The direction and angle of the hair follicle
- The depth of the open channel
- Number of open channels per cm2
- Put the right bulb in the right place
Today we use the latest technology in opening the channels, where we use a sapphire pen
that carries sapphire blades that are characterized by their sharpness and smoothness in opening the channels, and thus it is easy for the surgeon to determine the direction, depth, and angle of the open channels, and greater control over the number of follicles in cm 2, which in turn leads to a higher density of hair It is characterized by several other features, the most important of which is the speed of healing and the lack of oxidation of wounds.
In the latest technique which is the direct implantation method, by means of a pen called the Choi pen
that carries hollow heads according to the thickness of the hair follicles, as we mentioned earlier, in this technique, the hair follicles are placed one by one inside this hollow needle that the Choi pen holds, and implanted directly in the recipient area without the need to open channels in advance because this pen opens the canal and implants the bulb at the same time.
Transplanting Hair Follicles Into The Channels
When the surgeon finishes opening the canals in the recipient area, the final stage in FUE hair transplant surgery comes, which is placing hair follicles in the open channels according to the direction and angle of each channel, and also the important thing is also to place each follicle in its appropriate place, for example,
It is not permissible to implant a follicle bearing three hairs in The front of the head because it gives an unnatural appearance, and this is what we touched upon a little while ago and what we called putting the appropriate bulb in the right place.
The surgeon supervises the specialists who implant the follicles in their places until the end to avoid any errors that may occur, despite the long experience of our specialists in this field.
From the foregoing, we conclude that FUE hair transplant surgery with the latest technology FUE does not leave any scars or scars, and gives a very natural appearance and the main factor here is the experience of the surgeon, which is our priority at ClinMedica
Hair Transplantation From Beard To Hair
The area under the beard is used for people who suffer from a deficiency in the donor area, and when the area of baldness is large for them as it cannot be covered, and we may sometimes resort to a second session.
The area under the beard is like the donor area behind the head in terms of its resistance to shedding, but it is often thicker, so it is implanted in the upper area and the crown area of the head.
Body Hair Transplantation
Some people think that it is possible to use body hair to perform hair transplantation in the head. Of course, this is a misconception, although there are many hair transplant clinics that do this work, as they are only interested in earning money.
We here at ClinMedica warn and completely reject transferring body hair to the head, because the structure of body hair is completely different from the structure of facial hair, including the head and beard, in this case, the body hair was not implanted in the head, it will fall out directly or in the first months as a maximum.
At ClinMedica we are always keen to provide the best hair transplant results to our patients,
so that they are natural and satisfactory, as we mainly do cosmetic work,
and plastic surgery is found to make people satisfied with their appearance.
