HOW IS HAIR TRANSPLANTATION PERFORMED?

Hair transplant operation is performed under local anesthesia. After applying local anesthesia to the area, hair follicles are collected one by one and the process is carried out. It is very important for the success of the operation that the hair follicles called ‘grafts’ are not damaged. Usually the nape area is one of the best areas for ‘grafts’ to be collected.
After the ‘grafts’ are collected, channels are opened in sizes sufficient for ‘grafts’ in the area with baldness problem. At this stage, the dimensions and angle of the channels are very important to obtain a natural appearance.
In the last stage of hair transplantation, ‘grafts’ are placed in the opened channels at a 45 degree angle in line with the determined plan and the operation is completed.
