Examination Analysis and Planning
During this Stage blood tests, and the scalp of the patient is examined. The front line is drawn and is decided by the professional team together with the patient to grant the patient the best results according to their liking.
The Application of local anesthetic and harvesting of the hair grafts
This stage involves the shaving of the full head if the patient is getting hair transplant using the FUE method and if the patient is going with the DHI method then only the donor area is shaved. After that, local anaesthesia is applied to make the other stages of the hair transplant operation completely painless. Then the grafts are extracted from the donor area with the help of a micromotor. Grafts are harvested one by one. That is why this method does not leave any scars after the recovery.
During this stage, small incisions are made in the recipient area in order to implant the grafts extracted from the donor area. Things such as the depth of the incision and its direction have a huge impact on the success of the operation.
The hair transplantation Stage
At this final stage of the operation, grafts taken from the donor area are implanted in the channels opened in the recipient area. This is the most comfortable stage of hair transplant as you can lay on your back and enjoy listening to music or watching a movie.
