GCT Healthcare Division plastic surgeons are quite experienced and can transplant up to 5,000 grafts in a single session. The surgery takes place in a very relaxed setting. You may listen to the music, read a magazine or watch a movie during the procedure. Normally, the surgery takes about 6-8 hours and the postoperative controls take place on the next day of surgery. Given that FUE hair transplantation is quite a long session, the doctor performs the surgery with the help of the entire medical team for your benefit.
Hair transplantation is one of the most performed aesthetic procedures in Turkey and abroad. Hair loss affects millions of men and women around the world and it can be an emotional problem for many people if not treated. Every month, thousands of people come to Turkey for hair transplantation for affordable prices in Turkey, high quality hospitals and talented
and experienced plastic surgeons or trichologists. Thanks to advanced technology, there are various successful hair loss treatments for both men and women. Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that involves moving individual hair follicles from one part of the scalp (the donor site) to bald or balding parts (the recipient site). Modern hair transplantation can achieve this through a procedure called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Most people lose hair due to inheritance. Medical problems, drugs or infections can also trigger hair loss.
The surgery starts with a haircut and the extraction of the hair follicles from your donor area, carries on with cutting the follicles into individual hair shafts, and completes with the insertion of the hair shafts into your scalp on the balding areas. Hair follicles are extracted from the donor area homogeneously so the donor site will not be noticeable after the surgery. Individual follicles are removed under local anesthesia by a micro blade using tiny punches of between 0.6mm and 1.25mm in diameter. Each follicle is then reinserted back into the scalp on the balding areas. There are no incisions, but small punches by the micro blade so there will not be any scarring, pain is minimized and the recovery time is fairly short (less than a week). Above 95% of the transplanted hair will grow and results are permanent because transplanted hair are not subject to the effects of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the hormone causing hair loss in the balding process. The skills demonstrated by the Orion Healthcare Division trichologist are key to the success of the procedure, especially while extracting the follicles without damaging the hair and planting the hair with the right density and at the right angle to the surface of your scalp to achieve a natural look.
