Hair transplantation is one of the most important, newest and most famous operations that has recently emerged to overcome the problems of hair loss that cause embarrassment and lack of self-confidence, and it is simply a harmless cosmetic procedure through which hair is returned to the scalp areas that suffer from baldness.
There are several techniques followed for this goal, each with its advantages and disadvantages, but with sufficient experience and correct extraction, both techniques are a final solution to the problem of hair loss.
The specialist doctor conducts a comprehensive examination of the patient, and opens a medical file for him in which he writes everything that pertains to the patient’s medical history, current diseases, or specific desires because the aim of the procedure is mainly to satisfy the patient, and all procedures are also reviewed on the day scheduled for the operation, and you can ask the doctor About everything that concerns you about the process.
Hair transplantation is performed using local anesthesia, and this is one of its most important advantages, and it is performed through one of the following two techniques approved by all international centers.
FUE extraction technique
FUE hair transplantation is the most advanced technique in cosmetology, which is currently widely used, especially by centers that keep pace with the latest innovations and scientific studies in the field of cosmetology. Follicular Unit Extraction (Follicular Unit Extraction) is an abbreviation of Follicular Unit Extraction, meaning follicular unit extraction, and it is based on extracting the follicles from the donor area, which is often at the back of the head, with very precise devices, and implanting them in the affected area without affecting the donor area. This technique was a quantum leap between the fact that hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that requires strings and bandages and leaves scars, until it becomes an easy, painless, quick-healing process that does not require surgical incisions, and its features with these many features prompted its adoption by most international beauty centers.
The follicles or micro-grafts are extracted using modern devices measuring 1 mm, a Choi pen, from the donor area, after which the follicles are separated, cleaned and placed in a saline solution to preserve them until implanted.
Very small holes are then created in the affected part, the number of these holes ranges from hundreds to thousands of holes depending on the size of the part to be transplanted. The pen helps to give a high density due to the cultivation of the follicles close to each other.
The process takes a relatively long time, ranging from four to six hours, but this process is preferred by women in particular as it usually takes place in one session during which a number of grafts ranging from two thousand to seven thousand hairs are implanted and it is usually sufficient for a person unless his head Completely free of hair, and this process is painless and does not leave a scar, and the person can practice his normal life within a maximum of 48 hours.
Both of the previous two techniques are considered a satisfactory and curative solution, some results of which appear immediately, but the final result appears within a period of up to one year. And these techniques eliminate the problems of hair loss permanently, as the transplanted hair never falls out except by external factors such as burns and wounds.
And it is advised not to use alcoholic beverages and aspirin after the operation, as it may cause bleeding in the transplanted area. Be careful not to put a chemical substance, solutions, cosmetic, hair spray, or conditioner on the hair after the operation for a period of three weeks.
The scalp should remain dry for the first few days in order to quickly heal wounds and prevent hair loss. The drugs and preparations prescribed by the doctor should be used after the operation with commitment, and during the first week, heavy exercise, psychological pressure and tension must be avoided.
