What is Hair Transplantation?
The process of transferring hair follicles taken from regions with different genetic characteristics, such as the nape and the sides of the head, to the balding regions is called “HAIR TRANSPLANTATION”. The hair in these regions (the regions where the donor hair is located) is genetically coded not to fall out by its nature. For this reason, they do not fall out when they are planted in another region.

In general, the FUE (follicular unit extraction) technique is a basic technique. In the FUE method, individual hair follicles are taken from the back of the head with the help of some tools. There is no incision in the area taken. Afterwards, small holes are drilled in the area to be transplanted with the help of instruments and the prepared follicular units are planted there. Grafts containing 1 and 2 hairs are placed on the front line of the hairline, and grafts containing multiple hairs are placed on the back. In order to obtain a natural appearance and not to damage the donor hair during transplantation, great attention should be paid to the method of transplantation and the equipment used.
