Hair transplantation is a permanent solution for hair loss or baldness problems. Hair loss is typically related to one or more factors; although it is generally caused by genetic factors, the loss can also occur from psychological problems such as stress at an early age. Another reason is age-related hair loss, which is seen as a natural cause. Before starting the hair transplant operation, the reason for the hair loss should be determined. As a result, the necessary examinations will be made and it will be discusses which method will be more suitable for the patient. According to him, it will be decided which hair transplant method will be applied.
Although there are many alternatives for hair transplantation, three basic stages are valid for most of the methods: collecting the hair follicles, opening the channels and implanting the roots to the opened channels. Even if this is the basic principle of hair transplantation, the application methods and the
materials used can differ.
