What is a Hair Transplantation?
Hair transplantation is the process of transferring the grafts with strong hair follicles taken from the donor area to the area where the hair is absent or sparse. In the 1930s, the Japanese doctor Sasagawa introduced the process of transplanting hair follicles. However, this dream, which he did not realize, came true in 1952, after an American doctor examined the transfer of hair transplantation. Until 1980, planting methods without natural results were used. Thus, the foundations for the development of today's modern methods and successful aesthetic transplant operation were laid.
21. in the XII century, the problem of hair loss in men and women is observed due to changes in weather conditions, differences in nutritional values received, changes in living conditions, and hereditary causes. As this problem is permanent; We offer hair transplant solutions that make you smile, practical, time valuable, and pain-free. The purpose of hair transplantation is to contribute to the improvement of the quality of life by regaining the healthy hair of the person.
How to do Hair Transplantation?
During transplantation, the boundaries of the donor area and the area where the hair will be transplanted are determined by drawing first. Then, it performs the shaving process so that the transplantation can be done on the skin. In some cases, it is also done unshaven. Hair transplantation stages are divided into 4 parts as anesthesia application, collection and placement of grafts and mask application.
Application of Anesthesia
In order for the person to have comfortable and painless hair transplantation, spraying method is applied with painless anesthesia device to match the area to be transplanted. Since the needle is not used in the local anesthesia procedure, the person does not feel pain and the anesthesia is sent under the skin. Then, in order to increase the effect of painless anesthesia and to ensure that it lasts longer, the application of anesthesia is completed with local anesthesia.
Collection of Grafts
First, the person's hair follicle is collected individually with the help of micro motors to meet the need without distorting the shape of the donor area. Since the collected grafts are living micro-organisms, they are held in the organ transplant solution.
Placement of Grafts
The grafts are placed one by one by opening channels in the area where the roots are determined. The grafts insertion process during hair transplantation takes approximately 3 hours.
After the graft placement process is completed, a gold mask is applied to the donor spot. The golden mask is a product patented by estethica that allows a person to spend a more comfortable night. By reducing pain, it relaxes the person and takes him away from bandages for a while. In addition, the active ingredients in it reduce edema and provide recovery in a short time. After the transplantation procedures are finished, a session of ozone mesotherapy is applied to the person.
What are the Hair Transplantation Methods?
Different methods are used in the collection and placement of grafts in hair transplantation. These methods are the latest applications carried out in the light of technological developments and vary according to the size of the region to be planted. Methods used in cultivation;
- FUE hair transplantation
- Sapphire FUE hair transplantation

The grafts taken are placed in the determined area by opening thin channels. Between 2000 and 5000 grafts are collected on average in a single session. If necessary, the second session can be held and the gathering can be done. The most important advantages of FUE hair transplantation method are that the transplanted hair is permanent and the hair continues to grow. Fue transplantation method, which can be applied to men and women, does not require stitches, so no marks or stains are formed.
Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation Method
Sapphire FUE hair transplantation method is among the most preferred methods today. Sapphire FUE method performs shaved and unshaven hair transplantation. Channels as many as the number of grafts required for transplantation are opened with a sapphire tip. Thanks to the sapphire tip used, the lightest possible trampoline is created on the scalp. Thus, the scalp heals faster after transplantation.

Hair Transplantation in Women
Hair transplantation for women can be done with a shave or without a shave. The planting method is determined according to the preference of the person. If the area to be planted is wide, a more frequent and intensive planting can be done by choosing the shaved planting method. The unshaven sowing method, which is generally preferred by women, is applied in planting in a smaller area. This is because the maximum number of grafts that can be taken in unshaven operations is around 3000.
In women, the transplantation process is carried out by planning according to the number of grafts that can be taken in the hair transplantation process. In unshaven hair transplantation works performed in a single session, the second session is performed after 6 to 8 months and the tightening process is applied.

In patients with hepatitis B, hair transplantation is performed after disinfectant procedure is performed in the personalized room. In addition, the tools and equipment used are disposable and all disinfection procedures are carried out.
Hair Analysis and Selection of The Appropriate Technique
While performing hair analysis, the whole plan depends on whether the hair in the donor area is sufficient. For the person with sufficient donor area, planning is made for the transplantation process in all necessary regions. If the patient's donor area is insufficient, the operation is divided into two sessions by deciding with the patient. In order to choose the appropriate technique, the frequency, skin structure and age of the patient are taken into consideration. Sapphire hair percutaneous technique is used for a patient who needs to be transplanted between the hairs, while the DHI Plus Gold method is preferred if transplanting is required between the hair and the hair.
After Hair Transplantation
After hair transplantation, special micro-needle treatment, needle mesotherapy, laser therapy and ozone mesotherapy applications are performed in the institution.
Special Micro Needle Treatment

Micro-needle treatment management allows hair follicles to regenerate, weakened or thinning hair to become stronger by supporting cell regeneration, and to repair the roots.
After hair transplantation, the development of hair tissue begins with the transplantation of grafts.
