What is Hair Transplantation?

Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that offers a permanent solution for individuals with hair loss. It involves taking hair follicles from the denser hair areas at the back of the head, usually called the donor area, and transplanting them to bald or sparsely haired areas. With the advancement of technology, hair transplantation methods have also undergone a major evolution, now achieving much more natural results and significantly shortening recovery times.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Technique

FUE is a hair transplant technique where the hair follicles are extracted and placed one by one. This method is preferred because it’s minimally invasive, and one of its biggest advantages is that there’s no scarring after the operation. With FUE, the hair follicles are extracted directly from the donor area using special microsurgical instruments and transferred to the area of hair loss.

Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) Technique

DHI is a newer technique that implants hair follicles directly into the scalp using a special pen (Choi pen). This technique minimizes damage to the hair follicles and provides greater control during placement, resulting in a natural look and density. DHI shortens the transplantation time of hair follicles, maximizing the viability of the follicles and allowing for faster recovery.

Both techniques get great results that really improve the look and make patients happy. The right technique depends on the patient’s hair, how much hair they’re losing, and what they want. Dr. Erman Ak and his team figure out the best way to do hair transplants by thinking about what the patients need and want.
