Hair loss has become an issue for almost everyone today. Besides genetic factors, stress and misnutrition are among the biggest causes of hair loss. Hair loss can only be recovered permanently with a hair transplant.
Today, there are two methods often used for hair transplantation.
- Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE):
It is the transfer of hair follicles one by one from the nape or from various parts of the body with fine-tipped special needles to the area to be planted. Since there is no suture application, there are no suture marks.
- Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT):
It is the transplantation of the hairy skin taken from the healthy and unspoiled area on the nape of the neck to the area to be transplanted, keeping the natural structures of the hair and hair follicles.
