In FUE technique, hair roots are extracted individually from the hairy area that is named “donor area” between the two ears with the use of cylindrical micro-tips of 0.7 mm and 0.8 mm diameter. The removal of hair follicles is carried out with a device called manual punch or micro motor. The hair units extracted from this area are called grafts. One graft contains dual or threefold hair cells.
Hair transplantation with FUE technique is a procedure performed under local anesthesia. Before starting the procedure, patients do not feel any pain, except the pain of the few needles administered for the local anaesthesia. Numbness develops very quickly. Hair transplantation is a procedure in which hair follicles are removed from the donor area and transplanted to the bald area according to the density of the hair and the patient’s need. The doctor decides how much graft will be needed according to the patient’s hair thickness and their needs after conducting a hair analysis on the patient. People who have undergone hair transplantation can actively return to their work and social life within 7-10 days. The length of the hair transplantation operation depends on how many roots will be transplanted. The average time of transplantation is 6-8 hours. There is no trace in the transplantations done by the FUE method. After the procedure, your hair is completely grows out within 8-12 months.
SAPPHIRE TIPPED FUE TECHNIQUE
The sapphire used in the Sapphire Tipped FUE Technique is obtained from the sapphire mine. This Sapphire tip is used in the normal FUE method instead of the metal slit. In short, the Sapphire FUE method is not a different technique; it is the advanced form of the channel opening technique used during the existing FUE method. Since Sapphire FUE structure is sharper, anti-bacterial and sound, the damage to the scalp during canal opening is much less compared to the metal slit. Hair transplantation can be performed much thicker. Thanks to the fineness of the diameter of the Sapphire tip, in the metal slit these greft numbers are limited. The edema and cracking that will occur after the application is much less compared to the metal slit. It offers a quick and comfortable recovery.
If the treatment given by the dermatologist lasts for 6 months and a positive response cannot be obtained in this process, the procedure of eyebrow transplantation takes place.
FUE technique is used in the eyebrow planting that is going to be performed. By the use of local anaesthesia, it is completed approximately in 3-4 hours. During the process of eyebrow transplantation, the roots taken from the neck are used. In transplants, the roots should be planted in a certain direction, at a certain angle. In all the transplants performed, the hairs those are to be used are obtained from the human body. The hairs taken for transplantation should be transplanted without waiting. The process is carried out under the supervision of a specialist doctor in a clinical setting. Scabs having the size of a needle pin can be observed in the transplantation area for a week. However, these scabs are shed shortly afterwards. Thus they do not pose an obstacle for the daily life of the patient.
The person who underwent an eyebrow transplant should not expose themselves to the sunlight for two weeks. It is important for them to avoid environments such as sea sides and swimming pools. Besides these, it is suggested for the person who underwent eyebrow transplantation not to engage in intense sport activities.
After the eyebrow transplant, the eyebrows reappear after an average of 3 months. Within 7-8 months of time the process takes its final shape. Just like a regular hair transplant, a loss of hair occurs after 15 days. This loss of hair lasts 3 months. At the end of this period, no loss of hair is observed in the transplanted eyebrows.
In an eyebrow transplant, the hair removed from the back of the neck grows in a short period. Patients are advised to cut them in 15 day-long periods. At the end of a year, the eyebrows grow from their transplant site. After that, their elongation speed slows down. Thus, the need for trimming becomes fairly reduced.
