FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT
Hair Center Istanbul France specializes in the technique of follicular extractions, more commonly known as FUE hair transplantation. This capillary sampling technique is used to correct certain androgenetic alopecia. The follicular units are taken one by one from the nape of the neck to then be reimplanted on the bald areas of the skull, eyebrows or beard.
The first hair transplants were born in the 1950s. Since then, the techniques have been much refined in order to offer patients much more natural results and less cumbersome interventions. In the 2000s, Rassman and Bernstein described a new harvesting method, “FOX PROCEDURE” or FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplantation. It is a minimally invasive procedure and without post-operative pain.
PROCEDURE OF A FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT
After local anesthesia on the donor area, the follicular units are removed by the practitioner with a punch. The punch is a very fine instrument (0.8 to 0.9 mm) which retains the bulb of the hair on the nape of the neck and the temples. The multitude of scars, less than a millimeter in diameter, caused by the removal are almost imperceptible to the naked eye regardless of the length of the hair. The grafts, which contain one to four hairs, are checked. Then they are kept in a storage bath.
The recipient area is anesthetized in turn. The implantation is done using a needle, which makes it possible to perform the micro-slit while introducing the graft at the same time. Within 48 hours, the cells regenerate around the newly implanted hair follicle. Hair grows back naturally within 3 months after hair transplantation. The time of regrowth, it takes between 6 and 12 months to judge the result.
