WHAT IS HAIR TRANSPLANTATION?
Based on our 17 years of experience, we can say that there is not a prepared prescription for successful hair restoration. The success of hair restoration depends on the experience and competency of the physician performing the operation, selection of the technical equipment used and a well-organized, comprehensive team work. Some techniques and applications which have not been tried scientifically and comprehensively may have disadvantages. Therefore, we present our patients only tested solutions which can give the best results at the lowest risk.
What is FUT?
FUT is an abbreviation of the term “Follicular Unit Transplantation”. Follicular unit is the natural hair bundle composed of multiple hair roots. These units can be differentiated under three-dimensional microscope. Since it is a structure with anatomic integrity, maintaining and transplanting it on a new location renders the outcome of hair restoration both natural and more efficient. Dividing these units carelessly may lead wasting of a few roots, which may shorten the life of the new hair. Transmed assures working completely with Follicular Unit in all the surgical hair transplantation interventions.
What is FUE?
FUE is an abbreviation of the term “Follicular Unit Extraction”. Roots to be restored are obtained by taking individual follicular units one by one with a special device. This method principally also provides obtaining and using the hair in the body. The advantage of this method is that no scar is left on the location of the roots taken one by one. In both FUT and FUE methods, hair roots are placed on their new locations by means of the same technique.
What is hair density in hair transplantation?
Scientific researches show that a hair density of 80 hairs with medium thickness per square centimeter can cover the skin completely. However, this density is related to the richness or poorness of the follicular units in terms of hair roots. While a density of 30 hairs per square centimeter can be obtained with “units including mostly triple roots”, this figure increases up to 40 with “units including mostly double roots”. Hair density should be discussed with the plastic surgeon who will perform dense Packing Hair Transplantation and rule of thumb methods should be avoided.
