The first stage is extracting hair follicles from the backside of the head between the head and above the neck ”donor area”, and it’s done by a device called ‘micro-motor’ which is one the best tools used in the extraction process. As for the other stage is opening channels by using the ‘sapphire pen’ and opening the channels will be in a precise way that will be compatible with the natural hair to ensure natural results for hair transplants. Then the extracted hair follicles will be preserved in a special liquid, and lastly, after talking a rest it will be the transplantation stage.

Hair Transplant surgery Steps

For the safety of our patients, a general blood test is required before any medical decision. At the hospital, The Laboratory team will take a blood test to check whether or not the patient is suitable for the surgery.
To be sure that our patients will never experience pain and discomfort during surgery, our doctors administer local anesthesia, so there is no need to use general anesthesia for a hair transplant because the procedure only involves mild intervention on the skin and can be managed perfectly with local anesthetics.
Before extracting the grafts, we take into consideration the case of the patient and which type of hair transplant method will be appropriate for his case (standard FUE, SAPPHIRE FUE, and DHI ). After the micromotor device extract grafts from the donor area to be placed in the area where hair replacement is desired.
Opening the channels is one of the most important stages of hair transplantation as it affects the naturalness of the hair. In this level, we create incisions at the same angle as the natural hair to ensure natural results for hair transplant.
In this final step, we transplant hair follicles using the instrument suitable to the type of hair transplant previously chosen. Depending on a number of transplanted grafts and size of the baldness area, the surgery takes around 6 to 8 hours.
When the procedure is finished. There will be a bandage on the donor area to prevent swelling of the face after hair transplant. Therefore, the patient receives follow-up recommendations and can return to the hotel. Finally, the results of hair transplant surgery can improve your appearance and your self-confidence.

WHAT IS THE LATEST TECHNIQUE IN HAIR TRANSPLANT ?
FUE TECHNIQUE ( Follicular Unit Extraction )
FUE (Follicles Unit Extraction) method, which is operated using advanced technology that is used in hair transplantation. In this method, a device called micromotor is used to extract the hair follicles from the donor area. Thanks to this device, the graft extraction process takes a short time, and it will prevent swelling in the donor area. In the hair transplantation process performed with the FUE method, the number of hair follicles transplanted, and the desired result is achieved by 95%.
After the region is prepared for the procedure, the hair follicles are collected one by one. Each of these roots, called graft, has an average of 2-3 hairs. Small incisions are made to transfer the hair follicles that are collected one by one to the balding area.
The size and depth of these incisions should be compatible with the grafts. The angle of the opened channels should be adjusted very well to capture the natural appearance. The roots taken at this last stage is carefully placed one by one in the opened channels.
In other words, hair transplantation is the process of transferring healthy and strong hair follicles, usually taken from the back of the head to be transferred to the balding area.
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE FUE TECHNIQUE?
• The FUE method is the latest technique used since 2004.
• Compared to the old method, it is a much more comfortable operation for both the patient and the doctor.
• No extra time is required to separate the roots.
• No extra time is required to separate the grafts. They are clean and free from residues taken in the FUE technique, so it is possible to open smaller channels.
• In this way, there is no trace in the cultivation area. The patient is provided with a casual hat without a bandage on his head.
• The patient can do office work the next day. It is also possible for the patient to return to the job immediately after the first wash (about 36 hours later).
DHI hair transplantation technique is a slightly more developed version of the FUE hair transplantation technique regarding hair follicle uptake and transplantation. Grafts (hair follicles) are extracted from the donor area (rarely beard or chest) with the help of micro motors and planted in the baldness area.
The difference of the DHI hair transplantation technique from other techniques starts after this point. The special technique used in the DHI hair transplantation technique works with much more advanced technology than the techniques available today. In this technique, the first goal is to carry out a lifelong guaranteed hair transplant operation without using scalpels or stitches and making holes in the scalp.
With this procedure, which is completed in a single session, it is possible to have more intense hair that looks more natural. The main difference in the application of the technique is the use of a hair transplant pension developed over the past few years. The grafts are taken with the surgical pen, whose thickness varies between 0.6 mm and 1 mm, and used into the scalp without opening any stitches.
This technique, which requires more attention, precision and effort than other
methods offer many advantages that cannot be ignored.
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE DHI TECHNIQUE?
