Hair transplantation, so-called hair transplantation, is a procedure to transfer the healthy and robust hair roots from the donor area (usually from the nape) to the area where the hair is rare or decreased.
Hair transplantation methods are grouped as FUT and FUE. In both methods, local anesthesia is applied on both donor and receiver areas. FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) method is a procedure to remove the hair on the nape as a band between two ears.
The area from which the hair is taken is closed with esthetic suture. The hairy scalp taken as a band is prepared for the transplantation as units (grafts) containing 2, 3 and occasionally 4 or 5 hair roots and transplanted on receiver area.
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method is another procedure to take individual hair roots from the hairy scalp using special microsurgical devices. The grafts are removed from back and side parts of the scalp and transferred onto targeted area.
