ABOUT HAIR TRANSPLANT
WHAT IS HAIR TRANSPLANTATION?
Hair transplantation is transferring your own hair to the areas of hair loss and transplanting them. Hair consists of hair string and root. Hair strands are produced and grown by live hair root cells under the skin. Hair transplantation is transplanting live hair root cells under the skin. These cells are obliged to be viable in the area that they are transplanted in order to produce hair again and this is permanent. Hair transplantation is not simply planting the hair strand. Hair strand is a non-living formation. If only hair strand is transplanted, it stops growing and falls off. Hair strand is only useful for holding the hair without damaging the root while hair transplantation. Hair transplantation is a minor surgical procedure which is done under local anesthesia.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HAVE HAIR TRANSPLANTATION?
Hair transplantation operations do not take long. After the decision and interview phase of the procedure, operation is evaluated thoroughly. Hair transplantation procedure is done in approximately 7-9 hours in the same day. The duration may change due to graft number to be planted and handwork. It depends on the area of transplantation too, but hair transplantation is not a very long operation after all.

WHAT CAUSES BAD LOOKING HAIR TRANSPLANTATION?
Hair transplantation operation should be done cautiously and carefully, paying the attention that it deserves. When hair transplantation is not done properly, unwanted results may appear. You do not get a natural look after improper hair transplantation and this affects your look negatively.
Hair transplantation should be done without any mistakes, or it may cause bad results. There will be spaces in the hair, hair strands accumulate in an area and give an unpleasant frizzy look.
Transplanting the hair roots in improper angles is a wrong application, hair grows straight and an unnatural look will appear.
Another note of importance is that extraction of hair roots should be done cautiously. Hair should be extracted and transplanted without damaging the roots. If hair roots get damaged, that area will not grow hair and this is an unwanted condition. Existing hair may also fall off, and this is a non-reversible condition.
Another bad result of improper hair transplantation is scar formation after incision and wounds in the area of extraction and transplantation. Scar formation develops after Fut hair transplantation method; this is because hair roots are extracted and transplanted in a group. However, fue method does not leave a scar. When transplantation is done properly, a better look can be obtained that will make patients happy.
