Hair growth after transplantation in Turkey The patient is often concerned about the procedure and has many questions and inquiries, the most important are:
- Will my hair fall out?
- What are the causes of hair loss?
- Will hair growth be dense after transplantation and will I regain my previous shape?
Of course, they ask a lot of questions, and they look for answers that limit their anxiety, either by asking some of their friends who have undergone the procedure, or through websites, and here, we would like to tell them:
Hair transplantation is simple, not complicated or difficult.
- It is the transfer of hair follicles from a dense area to an empty area or a weak density area.
- We must abide by the instructions given by the doctors to get the best results.
We can explain it in two words:
- It is the soil where the hair follicles grow.
- If the breeding is strong and healthy, we will get good and healthy hair and if it suffers from hair problems, the hair will grow damaged and broken.
It is protein appendages that grow on the human body and are composed of biological elements originating from keratin and a few non-living cells and some components that cause damage to the body. The hair is divided into three sections
- The hard layer is usually the outer shell.
- The middle layer contains the middle crust.
- The cavity that holds the hair core.
- If we estimate the number of hair in humans, of about 6 million, which 1.5 of it is only in the scalp. It is normal during hair transplantation to transfer a certain number of follicles from the donor area, which is the most appropriate area to harvest strong hair follicles that are not affected by genetic factors to the recipient area.
- The transplanted hair begins to grow gradually from the third month after hair transplant until the final result is reached after 10 months.
- after consulting a specialist, hair transplantation is performed to both men and women who have hereditary baldness.
- Men with advanced cases of hereditary baldness are now seen to maintain hair follicles in the posterior area of the head.
- The donor area is also the strongest resistant to the symptoms of genetic baldness, hair loss, and hormone dysfunction
- The follicles that were transferred from the donor area to the front of the head will ensure a good result because, in the future, the possibility of transplanted hair loss is very low.
- Hair transplantation is done to cover bald areas, cover scars and intensify areas with low density.
Hair growth cycle
Human scalp hair grows about 0.3 to 0.4 mm per day or about 16 cm per year. Unlike other mammals, human hair growth and hair loss are random and not seasonal or cyclical.
At any given time, a certain number of hair follicles will be in one of three stages of growth and fall:
Anagen is the active phase of hair growth. Within this stage, the cells in the hair follicles are divide quickly.
The root of the new hair forms and pushes the old hair upward from the hair follicle.
During this stage, the hair grows about 1 cm for 28 days. Scalp hair stays at this active stage of growth for two to six years.
Some people have difficulty growing their hair to more than a certain length because the active phase of their hair growth is short.
On the other hand, people who have very long hair have a long active phase of growth
Unlike scalp hair, the hair that grows on the arms, legs, eyelashes, and eyebrows has a very short growth phase of about 30 to 45 days, that is why the hair in these areas is much shorter than the scalp hair.
The catagen phase is a transitional phase that passes about 3% of the total hair roots at any time. This stage lasts for 2-3 weeks. Growth stops and the upper part of the hair sheath shrinks and is attached to the follicle of old hair.
Telogen is a resting phase for the hair follicles, usually from 6% to 8% of the total hair roots are in this stage.
for scalp hair, this stage lasts for 100 days and is longer for hair that grows on (eyebrows, eyelashes, arms, legs).
During this stage, the hair follicles are completely at rest and the old hair is formed.
At this point, when you pull a hair you will see a dry and solid white material in the root of the hair, which is the top divided section of the primary follicles under the scalp.
Within the telogen phase, from 25 to 100 hairs fall naturally every day.
