Hair loss is a common problem for both men and women (60% of men and 50% of women suffer from androgenetic alopecia and irreversible hair loss). It’s distressing to patients because of its effect on appearance. Most people link their physical identity to their hair, so all the anxieties caused by hair loss are linked to various mental health conditions as well. Although there are plausible treatments and lifestyle changes, one could try there’s no certain cure to hair loss other than hair transplants. And Turkey is one of the go-to destinations for hair transplants, with its skilled surgeons and innovative equipment.
Hair transplants promise a definite change for those who are suffering from this health condition. As technology progresses, the procedure of hair transplantation advances its techniques and methods as well. In the past years, a new hair transplantation method has been introduced; follicular unit extraction (FUE) in which individual follicular units comprising 1 to 4 hairs are extracted under local anesthesia. This technique allows for micro removal of the graft using miniature punctures of 0.6mm- 1.0mm in diameter. Once extracted, these grafts are then settled into very fine punctured sites that need hair. Small needles and blades puncture the donor area for completion. FUE is a leaden procedure that needs attention and special care. And since it’s an arduous process, it needs experience and skill. With his experience of 18 years in hair loss treatment, Dr. Ertuğrul SEYMAN is one of the versed surgeons you can trust with such a procedure. Dr. Ertuğrul SEYMAN performs sapphire FUE hair transplant, rather than regular FUE in which sapphire blades are used, not regular steel blades.
