Baldness was still one of the most important problems facing humans since ancient times, a problem that occurs for men and women, but men have the greatest share of suffering with baldness. People have been able to face baldness in the past through many means, but most have not been as effective as they should have been or have been never effective. Human struggle with baldness continued until hair transplantation emerged. Hair transplantation is a cosmetic procedure that has evolved until it reached to an effective and safe form and now we can say it is the best solution to overcome baldness and hair loss.
At first, the idea was to restore hair to areas of scars arising from accidents and injuries that caused skin deformities. But with the passage of time the idea of hair transplantation has become broader and more effective. Hair transplantation from the beginning has been based on the principle of hair extraction from the donor area, where doctors found that hair can be successfully implanted in other areas of the head and continues to grow naturally.
Scientists have noticed that baldness is often spread throughout the head, except for specific areas that maintain their strength and resistance to various bald factors. These areas are present in the back and sides of the head. This is why the distinctive shape of the bald head appears, as we notice that baldness spreads strongly at the front of the head and becomes less effective in back and sides of the head. These areas, which have maintained their Stability, have inspired doctors. When we associate the ability to successfully hair transfer and the specificity of certain areas of the head that resist in front of baldness, we will have an idea of modern hair transplantation.
If the hair in the back and sides of the head is not affected by baldness and could be transplanted to other areas successfully this will open the door to get full hair resistant to baldness through this method. Despite the variety of techniques of modern hair transplant, but follow the same principle, while the techniques differ from each other in terms of method of extracting hair follicles.
Follicular unit transplantation technique: Hair follicles are obtained by removing a whole slice of the donor area and then cutting and implanting it in the receiving area.
Follicular Unit Extraction technique: Hair follicles are extracted from the donor area through the use of accurate surgical instruments that do not cause deep wounds or permanent scars, but take longer than a previous technique.
Direct hair implantation technique: A device called choi pen is used to extract hair follicles, which is not a technique in itself but can be said to be a development of the extraction technique described above. This technique summarizes traditional hair transplantation and makes it a medical procedure that requires no surgery. This technique needs a professional and efficient doctor to perform it and may not be effective for the owners of curly hair but is generally considered to be one of the best and latest technique available.
Hair transplantation is a procedure that needs accuracy and careful treatment. In order to get a successful operation, a modern technique and a professional doctor should be available, these ingredients may not be at an appropriate price everywhere, but even good hair transplantation in some areas may cost expensive prices. Fortunately, Turkey was not subject to this law. It is one of the few countries that provides appropriate prices, modern technologies and professional doctors at the same time.
