Hair Transplant Turkey African American
Before describing the process of hair transplant Turkey African American, we briefly look at what is hair transplantation. Hair transplantation is a natural method that offers a solution to balding caused by weak strands of hair or some health problems. It is a microsurgical transplant of hair follicles that still maintain their activity instead of hair cells that have lost their activity property. The goal of hair transplantation is to ensure that the hair area looks natural after transplantation and to obtain permanent hair.
Procedures Applied to Hair, Another Factor Determining Hair Loss
Hair loss accurs in the front and side parts of the scalp as a result of too tight binding or too tight braiding of the hair, known as Traction Alopecia. This condition occurs mostly in women of African-American descent. This model, which is a traditional hair style, starts to be seen from an early age with very thin and tight braiding of the hair.
There are two types of hair transplantation;
Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT):
We also define it as classical hair transplant treatment. In this method, the scalp we take from the neck is transplanted to the balding area in strip form by our doctors. After removing the hair from the back of the nape, we sew this part and only a scar remains in the line. With this method, we add approximately 5000-6000 hairs in a single session. This method is a classical method and we can do it every 6 months. This means that 2 or up to 3 sessions can be held in transplant.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE):
As in the FUT technique, we take the hair from the same place in this method. However, unlike the FUT method; we take the hair with a stapler tool with a diameter of 1 mm. The hair inside this 1 mm diameter tissue is usually two or three. For this reason, you can only transplant 1000-1500 hairs per day. We cannot perform this process at long intervals like the FUT method. It is a process that we can apply 3-4 days in a row. The total amount of hair you transplant after 4 days is around 4000-5000.
Individual Hair Transplantation Process
As can be expected, hair transplantation is a personalized process, just like other operations. A few factors affecting the success of the operation in hair transplantation are the, shape of the person’s hair loss, the structure of the hair and the quality of the hair in the area where the root will be taken. Because there is no standard design in hair transplantation, a personalized hair design must be created for a natural and aesthetic appearance. Apart from hair loss shape or hair structure, there are ethnic differences as an important determining factor on the results of hair transplantation.
Hair Transplantation by Ethnic Differences
Hair transplantation, which is a serious and important issue, doctors cannot show the same approach to every race. Each hair type requires a suitable and original treatment, especially for African American. Because hair loss is very common in African-Americans, when hair begins to fall out, if the strands of hair are damaged, the hair cannot grow again and becomes permanent.
Hair types that people of African-American origin usually have are 4a, 4b and 4c.
For this reason, creating hair lines that correspond to the specific characteristics of Afro-type hair is the main task of the hair transplant doctor. In addition, another important task of the doctor is to ensure that the hair follicles are not damaged. And they should be able to use the latest Technologies and have experience to perform transplantation in the best way possible. Aslı Tarcan Hair Transplantation Center has been doing hair transplant Turkey African American successfully for years.
Hair Transplantation Procedure Applied to African Americans
People of African descent, unlike those seen, have fine-stranded hair. The reason they look intense is because their hair is curly. For this reason, most of African Americans who suffer from hair loss do not think that their hair is a good candidate for hair transplantation. But this is literally a myth. On the contrary, the curly hair character of African Americans gives patients a surgical advantage. This is because ‘curliness’ gives a more intense appearance. Therefore, better and visible results are achieved by using fewer hair grafts. Having curly hair is an advantage here. However, It is also a fact that grafts during the hair transplantation process cause some complications during the intake stage.
Compared to other ethnic groups, in African-Americans, the layer that surrounds the hair root from the outside, called the epidermis, is thicker and more stretched. This can cause damage to the hair follicles during the graft intake phase. It can also result in the rupture of hair follicles and a high rate of transection. The meaning of transection is graft damage that occurs during extraction. Another complication that can be; even if the hair transplant is completed, the risk of ‘cheloid’ formation due to scars in the immediate healing process. This, in turn, is a complication that occurs as a result of the body still trying to continue tissue repair by producing cells, even if the wounds have healed.
Unfortunately, this is more common in African Americans compared to other ethnic groups. However, this job is easier with an experienced hair transplant doctor and a professional team. It is also possible to achieve success in the hair transplantation of African Americans with modern equipment.
Are There Specific Side Effects That Can Also Be Seen in African Americans?
Hair transplantation surgeries performed by experienced specialist doctors are quite reliable. But as always, there are small surgical risks. Although it is not very common, aneztesis reactions can be observed. In addition, there may be side effects such as bleeding, unwanted scars, or insufficient or excessive growth of hair follicles. Because of the way the hair grows, African Americans also have a small risk of ingrown hairs or folliculitis. These complications can occur at any time. However, you can minimize these risks with a good doctor, professional team and advanced equipment. Also for hair transplants in Turkey for African Americans, it is quite easy to find successful doctors and medical centers.
