Your Hair Transplant Procedure
FUE technique is a method of extracting the hair follicles,one by one, from the donor area and transplanting them to the recipient area..
CONSULTATION AND CONSENT FORMS
FUE Technique Hair transplantation must start with a thorough examination. The hair and skin structure, hair loss stage, genetic history, the progressive hair loss scheme and the estimated number of hair grafts of the patient are the key planning elements during the examination.
The consultation must be detailed, satisfying and descriptive. All questions of the patient will be answered as the consultation is the foundation of the basic trust that the patient will establish with his doctor.
The advancements in digital sharing, in recent years, has made photographic consultation possible. Of course, this is a must for patients who will have to travel as medical tourists from different countries. However, before the hair transplantation procedure, photographic consultation must be accompanied with live consultation.
Following the consultation and all questions of the patient are answered, the consultation report will be submitted to the patient for their approval based on the information provided by the doctor.
Although hair transplantation has already become a sector and a business line in the world, it is still a medical procedure which demands mutual trust between the patient and the doctor. Photo shoots are vital for ensuring mutual trust. Verbal approva and written consent forms are required along with a high quality photographing at the consultation stage.
The photographs before the hair transplant procedure, which shows both the patient’s baldness stage, must be taken in a certain standard light and standard positions, by professional cameras.
After the washing is done, the day after the operation, photos of the patient are taken. This triple shot will help the patient make sure that the procedure is done within the promised surgical plan. It is necessary to keep the patient’s photos in the archive in order to follow the success of the results.
PREPARATION AND ANESTHESIA
In the FUE Hair Transplantation, donor area and recipient area are shaved separately. Depending on the chosen surgical method and procedure, either the donor area and the planting area are completely shaved to 1mm of hair, or in case of Partiel Shave FUE, procedure will be performed without shaving the recipient area, only the donor area is shaved. At Gur Hair Transplant Clinic, shaving of the donor and recipient areas are done step by step. Only the donor area is shaved before the hair is removed from the donor area. The planting area doesn’t get shaved in order not to move away from the surgical plan until the transplantation of hair. If Partiel Shave FUE model will be applied, the planting area will not be shaved at this stage.
The Extraction of the grafts
The removal procedure is performed by sticking micro-cylindrical capillary tubes into the skin that will encapsulate the hair follicles.
The name of this apparatus is FUE Punch. FUE Punch is pushed forward into the skin by circularly cutting the skin around the hair follicles. Therefore, the hair follicle
(Follicular units) will be separated from the skin around it but will not break completely and is keeps its place in the skin.
Operating surgeon cuts the number of grafts that was suggested during the consultation phase of the hair transplantation, in a circular manner thanks to FUE Punch with the method he sees fit at this stage.
After the use of the punch, the grafts are placed one by one on gauze cloths filled with special solutions that are placed on the petri plates using forceps.
Incisions smaller than 1mm:
The “undamaged-intact” grafts collected with the Golden Hand Standard must be placed in channels suitable to their own diameters. This is the most important element to ensure that the transplanted hair is almost undistinguishable.
If the grafts are placed in the channels opened in diameters that are much larger than their own natural diameters, they do not fit into the channel properly; they form collapses in the skin and pits in the scalp. This is the biggest mistake that prevents natural results in hair transplantation.
Just like how natural results cannot be achieved when the grafts are placed in oversized channels; if the grafts are placed in undersized channels, this time they will suffer physical damage. This leads to a decrease in growing rate and low density.
For these two reasons, grafts should be placed in the channels suitable for their diameters leaving no traces, by providing natural appearance and density. Placing the grafts collected with 0.8mm and 0.9mm punches into the channels opened below 1mm are indispensable elements of total aesthetic quality in fue hair transplantation.
The Golden Hand Standard is complemented with the opening of hair transplantation channels below 1mm.
Golden Hand Standards
√ Homogenic distribution during removal
√ Avoiding aggresive removal
√ Leaving no scars in the donor area
√ Punch use with proper diameter and depth
√ Very few partial transections
√ Negligible total number of transections
Recovery and Maintenance Phase
In the first 5-10 days; small, minimal scabs occurs in the donor area and recipient area.
These scabs are completely healed at the end of the use care products and washing cycle recommended by the operator doctor. 10 days later, no wounds or scars remain on the recipient or the donor areas.
After 5-10 days of recovery, the patients have the freedom as if she has never had their hair transplanted.
While the follicles, which are planted after recovery, remain alive in the skin, the hairs that they carry during the transplantation are break and fall. This refinement continues within 1-3 months. Hair follicles that remain alive in the skin after 3 months of falling start growing for a new vertex hair
hair. This phase is the regeneration phase. The regeneration phase lasts between 3-6 months.
After 6 months, the result phase emerges. The result occurs within 6-9 months.
Especially in the vertical growing zones, it may take longer for the transplanted hair follicles to produce a new hair. In this case, it is better to say 6-12 months instead of 6-9 months.
