Fue Hair Transplant Operation
Hair transplantation operation in Fue & Hair Clinic Istanbul is carried out with Fue Method which is accepted as the best hair transplantation method in the world.
Sheet metal cultivation was first applied in 1959 in the world. With the development of Fue technique in the 1990s, it entered into the modern and comfortable lane of today, and in the 2000s, the dominance of FUE technique came to the fore.
What is FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Method?
Hair transplantation with FUE is the first choice in the world today. In this method, the hair follicles taken individually by means of special tools (micro motor or manual punch) are placed in the very small and thin channels opened in the planned area.
Although FUE method is the most preferred method of hair transplantation today, FUT technique, which is the first method applied, is still widely used in many countries. Bernstein in an article entitled ’Follicular Unit Transplantation’.
In recent years, with the development of unshaved Fue application, hair transplantation can be performed in the hair transplantation operation without the need of shaving the hair of the patient. Although shaving hair transplantation is a method that is a little more difficult and prolongs the operation time, it enables the patient to return to social life faster.
Why FUE Technique
Based on many years of experience in hair transplantation operations, the best method to use during hair transplantation is the Fue Method. With the FUE method, which is accepted as the gold standard, people with hair loss are given the opportunity to have natural looking hair.
The most important difference of FUE technique used in hair transplantation operations is that it leaves very little scar after the operation and heals very quickly. After hair transplantation performed with Fue technique, patients can return to their social lives much faster.
With the development of equipment used in the Fue method in recent years, the success of hair transplantation operations has increased further. With the use of these new materials, Fue technique has been diversified with different names.
Types of Fue Technique
With the development of the materials used in hair transplantation operation, Fue method has also been mentioned with different names. These are as follows.
Classic FUE (Micro motor)
In the Fue method, hair follicles are collected individually from the nape or other body areas with micro motors with punches of 0.6, 0.7, 0.8, 0.9 and 1mm diameter, which have been specially developed for hair transplantation, or by manual punch.
The robotic hair transplantation process involves the automatic collection of hair follicles by the hair transplant robot instead of the classical methods, the opening of the channels in the planting area with advanced technology and the manual sowing of these follicles into the channels opened with minimum error.
DHI hair transplantation (FUE made with Choi implanter)
DHI technique, unlike FUE technique; hair follicles taken from the donor area can be described as a method in which two stages take place at the same time as implanting the implanted area without opening the canal with the implant. The Implanter / Choi needle has a very thin, cylindrical and sharp tip in shape. This Choi needle with a cylindrical tip is in the form of a channel and can be inserted into the needle by driving the hair along this channel. DHI technique is also referred to as Choi method because of the nature of this needle.
Sapphire FUE (Sapphire FUE)
With the advancement in technology, there are new developments in hair transplantation techniques and hair loss treatments. Hair transplantation operations, which have progressed to a great extent and turned into a procedure performed with minimally invasive methods, have become their present state in parallel with the development of the instruments used. Natural results obtained by FUE method, which is one of the most modern hair transplantation techniques which are widely applied today, took this success one step further by using sapphire tip special tools with sapphire fue hair transplantation method.
Soft FUE - Painless Hair Transplantation Method
With the Fue method used in the hair transplant operation, the pain that is already felt is very low with the Soft FUE method.The interior is imperceptible. With Soft FUE you can have a painless and much more comfortable hair transplant operation. Soft FUE is the ideal method for patients who have fear of needles during hair transplantation. The pain, which is already felt to a minimum, will be almost completely reduced to zero by this method.
With the sedation to be performed under the supervision of our anesthesiologist, you can hardly feel even local anesthesia before hair transplantation. In this way, you can get through the hair transplantation process more easily.
What is Sedation Applied Before Hair Transplantation?
Asyon Sedation öncesi applied to the patient before hair transplantation is a kind of sleep-adjusted sleep condition that can be individually adjusted and the effect can be scaled accordingly to protect all the reflexes of the patients who have a fear of needles.
The sedation procedure is completely safe, and the pain which is already felt is reduced to almost zero. Whether or not to do sedation depends entirely on the patient's wishes. Our patients who do not have needle fear do not have to have sedation.
Hair Transplant Stages
Hair transplantation operation takes place in three basic stages except preparation. These;
1- Collection of hair follicles - FUE method: Hair removal one by one
2- Opening channels
3- Planting of roots
Collection of Hair Roots
FUE method which uses hair transplantation to a more aesthetic and comfortable level is used in the collection of hair follicles.
With the Fue Technique, micro motors with 06, 07, 08, 09mm diameter punches (according to the size of the hair follicles) can be collected from the nape region according to the angle of the hair follicles. When the punch selection is made, it is determined how many hairs the hair roots have and the appropriate tip is used. In this way, the hair follicle is prevented from being damaged and collected in the highest quality. It is also important to collect hair follicles according to their angles. In this way again, the maximum quality collection is achieved.
The selection of pucnh, the angle of the hair follicles and the experience of the physician or healthcare professional who perform the collection are important for the collection of the highest quality hair follicles. Fue & Hair Istanbul works with maximum quality thanks to its expert team in this process.
Opening of the ducts should be done by specialist doctors and health personnel as in the process of collecting hair follicles. In the opening of the channels, the most important point is to create an incision appropriate to the natural direction of the hair. Therefore, metal (steel) slides are used in the Fue method. These slits allow the creation of incisions appropriate to the natural direction of the hair.
Slides used during channel opening are changed after opening 300 - 400 channels to maintain sharpness and to open natural angled channels. Fue & Hair uses sapphire inserts instead of metal inserts with the development of hair transplantation technologies in recent years. This process is called Sapphire Fue. Sapphire Fue method is much smoother and better quality results in grooving operations. Whether the grooving process is made with metal tip or sapphire tip, it is important that the tips are disposable for the patient.
The saon stage of the hair transplantation operation is the placement of the hair follicles with the right angles to the opened channels. In the process of hair transplantation, the hair roots should be placed one by one at angles of 40-45 degrees which are appropriate for the natural hair appearance of the patient.
Although hair transplantation materials used in all stages of hair transplantation are the factors that determine the quality of transplantation, the most important factor is the experience of the doctors and health personnel participating in the hair transplantation operation.
FUE Technique is the best quality hair transplantation method that allows the patient to return to his social life in a short time.
