Micro FUE Hair Transplant
Micro FUE Hair Transplant is an advanced and more sensitive type of FUE technique. The difference between micro FUE and FUE technique is the micro tip. In Micro FUE hair transplant, we take hair follicles with the help of a micromotor and micro tips with a diameter of 0.6-0.8 mm. We use thicker micro tips in the FUE technique. We take double and triple hair follicles from the donor area and count them individually. Since we use micro tips, there are fewer scars and deformities that may occur while taking hair follicles.For this reason, the healing process is faster than the FUE technique.
The operation takes place under local anesthesia. With the help of microcircuits, we take the necessary amount of hair follicles from the back of the head. We drill holes in the area where we will sow with a micro drilling tool. We place the hair follicles in the holes with micro pliers. Thanks to micro tools, the deformation in the area to be transplanted is reduced and the healing process is shortened.
There are many methods developed against hair loss, which has become the fearful dream of men. One of them and the most effective is FUE hair transplantation.
Hair transplantation generally consists of three stages. FUE hair transplantation will be discussed in more detail below, but briefly;
- Hair is collected from the donor area,
- Opening channels to the area where the planting will be made,
- Placement of grafts.
Causes of Hair Loss
As the causes of hair loss, the biggest problem of Turkish men is stress. In addition to these, the side effects of the drugs used are also effective in hair loss. Hair loss will occur again due to irregular diet and the body’s inability to take the necessary vitamins.
Women, like men, may experience hair loss problems. They face this problem especially during pregnancy.
When Is the Suitable Period for Hair Transplantation?
Patients who want to have a hair transplant while still in their early 20s do not want to restore their adolescent hairline and original density. We recommend that you do not perform the procedure at this age, as you will not be able to achieve any of these goals surgically without sacrificing your future appearance. It should be explained that hair transplantation is a procedure that acts rather than creating hair. It does not increase the overall hair volume.
In fact, the challenge is to make sure that the model of the transplanted hair takes into account the person reducing the total hair mass. Unfortunately, none of this can be accepted by a young man in his early 20s.
Micro FUE Hair Transplant Method Technical Analysis
Micro FUE hair transplantation is a method of hair restoration surgery that places hair in follicular units, naturally occurring groups. The small dimensions of the units, enormous versatility in their placement allow the creation of hair patterns that closely mimic nature and the transplantation of a sufficient number of grafts, so a complete restoration can usually be performed in just one or two sessions.
Micro FUE requires a large number of grafts during hair transplantation, so it is important to properly evaluate patient donor reserves in initial planning. Densitometry allows the physician to estimate the total amount of motile hair, the size of individual follicular units, and the degree of miniaturization, in both mobile and recipient areas. Evaluation of scalp laxity is also very important for surgical planning.
Donor in Micro FUE Hair Transplantation
In order for the donor to be insufficient for hair transplantation, we pay great attention to screening patients with very young or very common hair loss. Identifying androgenetic alopecia is often difficult for women, as other medical conditions can present a similar presentation. Medical treatment options are more limited in women, and most patients experience diffuse hair loss, which is a relative contraindication to surgery. Determining the correct size and location of the donor strip maximizes yield and prevents problems such as enlarged or visible scars.
Follicular units obtained from donor strips are sensitive structures. Careful dissection, gentle handling and adequate hydration are essential for their survival. In order to place thousands of grafts that are often needed during FUE hair transplantation, the surgical team must be competent in insertion techniques.
Aesthetic Structure of Micro FUE Hair Transplantation
FUE hair transplantation requires the study of optimal hairline design, correct angle and graft distribution, and more hair loss. It requires a clever aesthetic sense to create a master plan that is compatible with the patient’s long-term goals.
In the last decade, Micro FUE hair transplantation has evolved from a cosmetically unpredictable procedure to one that can produce consistently natural results.
FUE hair transplantation creates a natural appearance as possible while reducing the size of the wound and accelerating postoperative healing.
Purposes of Micro FUE Hair Transplantation
We only use these naturally occurring units in micro FUE hair transplantation. The Micro FUE hair transplant procedure takes advantage of the anatomical proximity of the hairs within each unit:
- Keeping the wound size of the recipient area to a minimum,
- Preventing the skin surface in the recipient area from changing,
- To facilitate postoperative recovery,
- It helps to place the grafts very close to each other,
- It allows us to perform safer and more hair transplantation in a single session (small recipient wound size).
History of Hair Transplantation
Dr Norman Orentreich performed the first hair transplant in the United States in 1952. In this hair transplant, he transplanted with grafts of 6-8 mm in diameter. At first, the unbelieving editors rejected Orentreich’s work, not believing that even a hair transplant was possible. In 1959 Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences finally agreed to publish his work. However, donor domination did not guarantee that the results would look natural while allowing the transplanted hair to grow.
Hair transplant in the United States consistently produces natural-looking results for up to 40 years later. It begins to promise predictable cosmetic improvements in most patients. Although it progresses slowly in terms of development, the large grafts used in the 1960s and 1970s eventually gave way to mini grafts in the 1980s. Then it led to mini micro grafting in the early 1990s. Then they set the stage for follicular unit transplantation. It first appeared in medical literature in 1995 and quickly emerged as the standard in hair restoration.
