HAIR TRANSPLANTATION AND NEEDS
Hair loss is a common problem for many people, and today hair loss surgery (in short, hair transplantation) remains the most common cosmetic surgical procedure for men. However the hair transplantation market,is overshadowed by the large market for products dealing with hair loss without surgery. Those products, including hair cosmetics and shampoos, have no proven strength beyond their ability to temporarily increase existing hair volume. Other than, two drugs approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. USA: Minoxidil (Rogaine sold on the counter in the USA) and Finasteride (Propecia for men only) with a limited but safe advantage.
Interest in hair transplantation has increased in recent years due to positive results, but the cost of intervention constitutes an obstacle to the majority. Indeed, the cost of the intervention is not suitable for all, the cost of this intervention can be as high as $ 25,000 and in Europe and the United States. On the other hand it is more convenient and cost ranged from 2,000 to 5,000 euros in Turkey, as well as the popularity received by the Ottoman Empire that also visiting Turkey to undergo hair transplantation is still the most viable option for everyone.
One of the fastest growing parts of hair transplantation is women part. Surgical hair restoration has been developed and traditionally used in men. New techniques (FUE and FUT techniques) are more suitable for women.
Hair transplantation is used to treat various shapes and degrees of permanent alopecia for men and women. Intact hair follicles can be safely removed from the patient’s scalp by removal of line surgery (FUT) or follicular units (FUE); Each extraction method has its own advantages and disadvantages.
FUE is a method for obtaining two hairs from the back of the head and then implanting them in areas with less hair or hair. However, not everyone with hair loss is eligible for the procedure. There are many factors that affect or even make the outcome of hair transplantation possible.

Unlike what most people think, alopecia affects women, but hair loss is completely different in both sexes. In the case of hair loss pattern in men, it is more predictable and tends to focus more on one or two regions in general, while the pattern of hair loss in women is generally more diffuse, with the same reason men have better candidates for a woman. Intervention as a woman.
As the number of hairs in the donor area increases, the number of grafts that can be transplanted increases.
Extension of hair loss:
The more stable the patient’s alopecia, the more satisfied the patient results.
Acoording to hair transplant specialists, hte laxity of the patient’s scalp is very important,the lower the laxity of the skin, the better the results of hair transplantation. As the laxity of the scalp increases, the difficulty of the procedure increases as it causes cilt recovery in of elastic skin grafts.
Thick hair leads to more dense hair after hair transplantation. If hair is thin, it means less dense hair.
