FUE Hair Transplant Technique
FUE technique is the most used technique in hair transplant. This technique is also very open to development. In this technique, firstly, hair follicles in the donor area are collected one by one with special tools. Small channels are opened so that these collected hair follicles can be transferred to balding areas. The operation is completed by transplanting the hair follicles collected from the donor area to the opened canals.
Advantages of FUE Hair Transplant
- Causes less skin trauma.
- Almost no scar remains.
- Recovery time is fast.
- The risk of infection is less.
- The pain is less.
- It can also be used in donor areas with low density.

What is DHI Hair Transplant?
DHI is a derivative of the FUE technique. In the DHI hair transplant technique, a special transplant pen called “Choi” is used while removing the hair follicles. This tool is designed to open a channel in the receiving area of the scalp and simultaneously insert it into the graft. In this way, hair follicles do not wait outside after they are removed from the donor area. Hair follicles that are not waiting outside can be transplanted more healthily and vividly.

What is Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant?
Sapphire FUE hair transplant is also a derivative of FUE hair transplant. The only difference of this technique from FUE hair transplant is that there are ends made of sapphire in the vehicles used. These tips made of sapphire allow the hair transplant surgeon to open smaller channels that heal faster. Sapphire tips do not lose their sharpness and tissue damage is less on these tips.

Hair Transplant Steps: Step 2
Local anesthesia is performed in hair transplant. In this way, the patient does not feel any pain during the procedure. Grafts are collected in the donor area of the patient after anesthesia. The channels are opened for the transplant of these collected hair follicles. Hair roots are placed in these opened channels. The processing time varies according to the size of the hairless area of the patient. An average hair transplant operation takes between 6 and 8 hours.
Hair Transplant Steps: Step 3
It is normal to have slight bleeding and itching after hair transplant. Mild swelling and bleeding usually disappear in the first week. The first washing after the procedure is carried out in the hair transplant center. The transplanted hair follicles can easily break because they are not firmly attached to their place. Therefore, washing should be done very carefully. After the first wash, other washes can be done by the patient. About 2 weeks after hair transplant, the phase called very shedding starts. At this stage, the transplanted hair follicles are shed. Healthier hair will gradually replace the shed hair. After the hair transplant, it takes about 1 year for the hair to be finalized.
