Hair transplantation is suitable for anyone who suffers from male type hair loss. The male type hair loss called androgenetic alopecia grows with the effect of male sex hormone. The cells that generate and feed hair around the hair follicles die with the rise of testosterone in the blood. Hair follicles become thinner, then stop growing, and are lost permanently. Hair transplantation is a final and permanent treatment method in patients who suffer from hair loss attributed to genetic reasons.
This method is called Follicular Unit Extraction and can be defined as harvest of follicles, which are root units that can contain more than one strands of hair, using a micro device with a special size in diameter without harming the follicles, storing them in serums that resemble their natural environment, and placing them in the areas that are opened by elaborate techniques. New Hairline Antalya Hair Transplantation Center has expertise in FUE Method and does not use any other technique.
Two different methods called FUE and FUT are used in hair transplantation operations today. FUT involves using a scalpel to cut out a long strip of hair follicles called grafts from the donor of the patient. For this reason, the donor is sutured and operation marks are left on the area. It is a bloody operation that is also disturbing in aesthetic terms. On the other hand, FUE involves the use of a surgical motor with a very fine tip to harvest follicles individually. The scalp is not cut or sutured, which makes it relatively short to recover.
Hair transplantation takes 5 to 8 hours to complete depending on the size of the area of hair loss and the number of grafts needed. As the head is locally anaesthetized before the operation, the patient does not feel pain during the operation. The patient may watch television, read a book, or take a rest or lunch break whenever he wants. It is a very easy operation on the part of the patient.
Your hair transplantation operation will be performed with specialized doctor at a comfortable and fully-equipped operating theater at Antalya Medical Park Hospital. First, the area of transplantation and the forehead line are determined by the doctor. At this point, doctor makes a decision with you. He tries to draw your Hair line with the most natural appearance in order to give your head a natural appearance and make it unnoticeable that you undergo an operation of hair transplantation. After the Hair line is drawn, your hair is cut using a hair trimmer and your head is entirely disinfected for local anesthesia. In the next step, the grafts – your hair follicles – are harvest and put inside petri dishes that contain a special solution. Once the number of follicles you need is reached, doctor proceeds to incision once incision performed by the doctor than the experience nurse places your hair follicles in the area where the follicles are to be planted. The duration of hair transplant operation takes 4 to 8 hours depending on the texture of your hair, size of the hair loss area and the number of grafts needed.
Aspirin or any other blood thinning medications should not be taken in the last week before the operation. Use of alcohol and cigarette should be stopped 3 to 4 days before the operation. If there are lotions or medications that are used for hair loss, they should be stopping to using by the last week before the operation. The patient should not be dyed before the operation.

The rashes that occur on the transplantation site after the operation generally recover in a week. You should always wear a hat whenever you are in a dusty or unhygienic environment for 2 weeks after the operation. You should avoid direct contact of sun or rain with your hair, and use scissors instead of hair trimmer if you want to have your hair cut in this period.
The first several weeks after the operation are very important as a measure of success of hair transplantation. The patient should avoid head traumas, and touching anything directly with his head or anything that may harm the transplantation site such as hitting, for the first 3 days in particular. Potential impacts may harm, move or displace the transplanted follicles. The patient should also pay utmost attention to his sleeping position. He should never sleep on his sides or face down. During the first night after the operation in particular, the patient should be checked on by a relative to ensure correct sleeping position. During the period of recovery, the patient should wear a hat or a kerchief to avoid the dust and dirt in public areas. The patient should take out the bandana or cap indoors to relieve the sense of pressure caused by the headwear and to apply oxygen to ensure faster recovery. He should also avoid getting into the sea, swimming pools, saunas, or performing heavy works and being exposed to sun. Heavy sportive activities should also be avoided and only milder activities such as walking should be performed. The patient should not have a haircut for the first three weeks. Haircuts using scissors only are allowed by the third week, and any haircut is allowed by the second week, following the operation. The transplanted hair will fall down (shock loss) within the first month from the transplantation. This is a predictable outcome and there is no need to be worry. It depends on the physiological characteristics, hair structure, and dietary habits of the patient. The transplanted hair usually grows by the 3rd month. Hair growth may lead to itches or acnes in this period. Most of the transplanted follicles should grow hair by the 6th month. It is possible to have a clear view of the operation results by the 1 year. Since the donor site resistance hair loss, the transplanted hair shows the characteristics of the nape area and is never lost.
