Am I a Good Candidate for Hair Transplantation?
The patient (men/women) must know that to be a potential inquire, there are some important factors.
However, before committing Hair Transplantation, the patient must take into consideration the age, general overall health, hair density level of the donor area and the recipient area.
What is the Success Rate of Hair Implantation?
The patient asks frequently about the success rate of the hair surgery. According to Dr. Arslan, the studies and the experience have shown that the rate of the success is 95% for men and 85% for women. Those rates are defined according to eventually regrowth of hairs from the grafts implanted and meeting the expectation of the patient.
There are two scientific accepted methods for the hair transplant:
FUT- Follicular Unit Transplant
FUE- Follicular Unit
Nowadays, the hair transplant techniques have been developed. FUE (follicular Unit extraction) is constantly evolving. When the level of the baldness is advanced, we perform the FUE which is the implantation will be done by 2 steps: preparation of emplacement of the grafts (incision) then the implantation of the grafts. If in the recipient area there are existing hairs, then the doctor performs 2 steps in one that means he does the implantation directly with the CHOİ PEN which is known as DHI (Direct Hair Transplant).
In some cases, the hair transplant surgeons perform the two types of implantation according to the shape of the recipient area. The level of density will be the same as its related to the grafts number not the implantation technique.
