Facial Hair Transplantation
Facial hair transplantation is a procedure by which areas in the face where thinning or lost hair growth, is restored by performing a minimally invasive surgical procedure. This procedure is typically performed on the beard and moustache, but it can also be applied to the sideburns, cheeks or eyebrows as well.
Facial hair transplantation is also a permanent solution for concealing acne scars, burn scars and other types of imperfections that may occur for a number of reasons. Loss of facial hair can either be genetic or due to external factors such as surgery, laser hair removals or injuries. The aim of this procedure, depending on each individual case, can vary from a minor coverage of a limited area to the full restoration of a thick beard. So it can be performed on areas that have no hair at all or on area where hair is thinning and thickness is desired.
Follicular Unit Extraction known as FUE is the most recent development in the world of hair transplantation. It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia. It does not require hospital stay and leaves no linear scarring. FUE procedure has three major steps: First, the surgeon starts to extract healthy follicular units individually from the wider donor area, located in the back of your scalp, that was shaved beforehand. Then, the surgeon starts making incisions in a random manner to give the most natural look possible. Finally, the healthy hair follicles are transplanted into the areas experiencing thinning or baldness. This hair replacement technique provides a permanent solution for your hair loss. It leaves you with a natural looking beard and a maximum density.
One of the most important elements of facial hair transplantation is to ensure the natural appearance of the newly planted graft. Doing so requires the skills of an experienced surgeon in the placement of the grafts in the proper angle and right direction. Any center can Transplant hair follicles but not every center can do so while maintaining the natural look of the patient’s face.
For optimal results, we in Avrupa Saç Ekimi, use the Lateral Slit Technique which is the most advanced in order to reproduce the natural growth direction of the hair. This technique also gives the illusion of greater hair density than the vertically placed follicles.
Avrupa Saç Ekimi has the very unique advantage of having all operations conducted by a highly experienced hair transplant doctor. This makes a tremendous difference in terms of the number of grafts that can be transplanted in one session, or what is sometimes called “mega-session”. Those type of prolonged sessions are especially beneficial for patients with an advanced status of hair loss pattern. They give them the most appearance-changing results in the fewest procedures possible.
