Frequent Hair Transplant

Baldness, sometimes due to genetics or hormones, sometimes occurs after an illness. Baldness, which affects most people regardless of men and women, is no longer insoluble thanks to the techniques developed today. In particular, the use of the FUE technique in hair Transplant has formed the most important step of this solution. Transplants discovery of FUE has both made a scarless Transplant possible and enabled hair transplantation to be performed more frequently.

When baldness is struggled for a long time, the expectation of people who want to have a hair Transplant also increases. Getting an intense and frequent image becomes a person’s first desire.Hair transplant Although FUE meets people’s frequent hair transplant requests compared to the old, frequent hair transplantation is also determined by the donor area, the width of the Transplant area, the structure of the hair and the experience of the doctor. Another Transplant point that people who want to have frequent hair transplantation should know is that frequent Transplants cause some side effects.

Is Frequent Hair Transplant Possible?

The Transplant question of whether frequent hair transplantation is possible depends on the density of hair in the donor area, the structure of the hair and the width of the area to be transplanted. Transplant makes it possible for an intensive and frequent transplantation because the donor area is dense in terms of hair, the hair located here has a thick and curly structure, the area opposite to which the transplantation will be performed is narrow. Transplant Decapitation is a very common type of hair transplant. Therefore, the person who is going to have a hair transplant should not ignore these issues when asking for frequent hair transplantation. It is possible to explain the issues that determine a frequent Transplant in the following way.

1- The Density of Hair in the Donor Area

One of the conditions of frequent hair Transplant is that the hair density in the donor area where the hair follicles will be removed is frequent enough. The Decrement of hair density, which determines whether frequent hair Transplant should be performed, varies between 300-500 per cm2 on average in a normal adult. Brown and black hair have a hundred thousand hair follicles, while light-colored ones have 10 percent more hair follicles, and red-colored ones have 10 percent fewer hair follicles.

Considering a person who has lost his hair, frequent hair Transplant requires an average of 100 hair follicles per cm2. For this purpose, the donor site should have a density of 50-80 hair follicles per cm2 to be planted. Therefore, it is important for frequent hair Transplant to have hair follicles in the donor area with sufficient frequency.

2- The Structure of the Hair

The structure of the hair is also one of the issues that affect the planning of frequent hair Transplant. Whether the hair strand is thick or thin, straight or curly is decisive in the image obtained after Transplant. People with thin and straight hair structure need to have more hair follicles transplanted per cm2 for an intense image. Although fewer hair follicles per cm2 are transplanted in people with thick and curly hair structure, an intense image is obtained. Therefore, although fewer hair follicles per cm2 are transplanted in people with curly and thick hair structure, it looks like a frequent hair Transplant has been performed.

3- The Width of the Area to Transplant

Another Transplant issue that is effective in frequent hair transplantation is the width of the area to be Transplant. If Transplant area is large, more hair follicles per cm2 are needed for a frequent hair Transplant. But if the Transplant is relatively narrower, it is easier to achieve a dense appearance, even if the hair density in the donor area is less. Transplant is small, therefore, the area to be transplanted opens the way for a frequent hair transplant.

4- Thin Channels

Another way of frequent hair Transplant is through the very small opening of the channels where the roots will be planted. In Transplant, the density of the donor area, the structure of the hair and the width of the Transplant area as well as the effect of the channels that are opened are quite high.

For frequent hair Transplant, a large number of channels per cm2 should be opened. The fact that the channels are small and close to each other causes the roots removed from the donor area to be close to each other, so the Transplant is frequent. However, by saying that I should do frequent hair Transplant, possible dangers can also be caused. Hair Transplant, which is performed frequently, can also cause a number of side effects, especially necrosis.

The Problems That Frequent Hair Transplant Reveals

Although hair Transplant is an application with a low complication rate compared to other aesthetic applications, it may result in some problems if it is not performed carefully and carefully. Especially in the name of frequent hair Transplant, the channels that open close to each other are one of the reasons that create these problems. The problems created by channels that open close to each other for frequent hair Transplant can be listed as follows.

1- Hair Growth Is Limited

During Transplant, the channels that open in the area where the roots will be placed are close to each other, especially intensive Transplant in a limited area causes the grafts to be unable to feed. Since the graft that cannot be fed cannot grow, hair growth cannot reach the desired level.

2- Getting The Grafts Out

Frequent hair transplantation also causes the previously placed graft to Transplant out during the placement of the grafts. When one graft is planted, the outflow of the other graft negatively affects the Transplant success. For this reason, it is important to place the roots in channels that are opened at intervals.

3- Trail Formation

Channels Transplant side by side for frequent hair transplantation may also cause the formation of small incision marks in the area where the Transplant is made.

4- Necrosis

Necrosis is one of the rare but serious complications of hair Transplant operations. It is caused by factors depending on both the patient and the Transplant technique. The first reason for the factors related to the Transplant technique is the frequent placement of grafts. Transplant, As frequent hair transplantation can cause even necrosis, which is a rare complication, it is very important to open the channels at appropriate intervals.

Hair transplant in Turkey is a very important step in the hair transplant process. Therefore, although a person who has been hairless for a long time wants to get frequent hair, the person who will decide to have a frequent hair transplant is not the person who will have an Transplant, but the doctor who analyzes and examines the hair.
