Hair transplantation is a procedure that moves hair from the back and / or sides of the scalp where the hair is permanent (donor area) to thinned or bald areas on the front, top, or crown of the scalp ( receiving area).

Project Healthcare prides itself on caring for its patients at contracted specialty centers that have experience and certified teams that have performed thousands of surgeries.

Depending on the need of the patients, hair transplant is performed with two technics in the World. Follicular Unit Extraction known as FUE or Direct Hair Transplant Technic (DHI).

Sapphire FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)

FUE is a method that has existed since beginning of 2000s and is very well known all over the world.

  • The nape of the patient trims to be 1-2 mm short.
  • Local anesthesia is applied to both the receiving area and planting area
  • In the FUE, hair follicles/grafts are taken from the region between two ears by using micro-motor devices with thin cylindrical punch at the end.
  • Opening of canals with sapphire in the area to be planted.
  • Grafting the collected grafts to the required area (placing them in opened channels).

DHI (Direct Hair Implantation)

  • It is known as channelless hair transplantation technique.
  • In this method, we use special pens called choi pens.
  • The grafts taken into the planting area are placed under the skin by giving them an angle, direction and depth.
  • Hair transplantation is done without damaging the existing hair of the person.
  • Since the grafts remained outside for a shorter period of time; transplanting success is greater.
  • Since the channel is not opened; Scaling of the hair observed after the operation lasts only 5-6 days.

The follicles will begin to produce new hair in 12 months and the hair transplant will be fully developed or “mature” in about a year.

It is the aesthetic arrangement of these individual follicular unit grafts that allows the surgeon to achieve the most natural hair transplant results. Hair transplantation should not be used as prevention, but as treatment, once hair loss has changed its appearance.
