What are the different types of Hair Transplant procedures?
Since 1930, doctors and scientists have been working on developing techniques for hair transplantation. Starting from Japan and reaching the whole world. Hair transplant procedures have given back the hope of healthy hair to many people.
There are three main techniques in hair transplantation: FUT hair transplantation, FUE and DHI hair transplantation. FUT is the oldest technique, and DHI is the newest and most advanced.
What is the difference between FUE, FUT and DHI hair transplantation?
FUT hair transplant procedure depends mainly on the removal of a strip of skin from the back of the head, from which the healthy hair grafts are then taken. The implantation is done by making incisions to prepare the problematic area to receive the healthy hair grafts. The results of the FUT hair transplant were not quite as satisfactory as expected. The final appearance was unnatural and resulted in a large linear scar at the back of the head.
The FUE technique is a better option for those who want a hair transplant without a linear scar. In the FUE method, hair grafts are taken directly from the scalp and implanted into the recipient area through incisions.
The DHI method is now used in many clinics around the world, especially in Turkey. In this procedure, technology is used to improve the implantation method. While the extraction is done as in the FUE method, the implantation is done with the Cho Implanter Pen. This advanced medical device provides higher accuracy and can implant the hair grafts between the existing hairs. In other words, the recipient area does not need to be shaved.
How to know if you are a right candidate for hair transplant procedure
Hair transplant procedures are the best solution for hair loss problems, but to be a suitable candidate for the procedure, you must have a good donor area. A good donor means that you have a sufficient amount of healthy grafts that can be harvested. If you do not have a good donor area, approximately 500 hair grafts can be harvested from your beard.
In addition to the nature of the donor area, the patient who wishes to undergo hair transplantation must be in generally good health. Patients suffering from chronic diseases such as heart disease, liver or kidney failure or diabetes may not be able to undergo hair transplantation.
How to know which hair transplant method is the best for you?
Between FUT, FUE and DHI methods. People are slightly more inclined to the DHI method. DHI method has the most advantages and is perfect for every case. The DHI hair transplant procedure helps to implant the hair grafts at the right depth, which ultimately leads to better results. And since the DHI method does not require incisions in the recipient area, the risk of infection is much lower compared to other hair transplant procedures.
DHI hair transplantation procedure is a method suitable for both men and women, but women prefer hair transplantation with DHI method because they are not completely bald during the healing phase, which makes the whole process much easier for them.
