First known hair transplantation operation implemented in 1822
in Germany by a doctor and his student. They tried to transfer the tissue to
requested area. In 1939, a Japanese dermatologist Okuda, did hair
transplantation on burnt fields and scars. In 1952, Dr. Norman Orentreich did a
hair transplantation on a patient with alopecia.
From 1950 to 2000s FUT(Follicular Unit Technique) was very popular and the taken tissue was
very big. Some of the follicles were not useful thus person was losing tissue
and a scar was remaining.
Besides due to the taken tissue patient was having a
sensation loss in that field. Gaps were not completely being filled because of
the insufficient hair follicles. Owing to this situation the image was
unnatural. Nevertheless, it was being used by hair transplantation companies
because there wasn’t any other method.
Transplantation Centers and Improvement Process
Hair Transplantation Treatment continued improving with the revolutionary DHI(Direct Hair
Implantation) technique in 2001.
This transplantation method known as DHI or CHOI. Basically, hair follicles are taken, manually or with the help of a motor, with a tissue by special needles(1-1.1-1.2-1.3 mm). There are disadvantages of DHI: Needles are so thin, that means longer operations and more sessions. Consequently the operation was being divided to 2 or 3 sessions depending on the transplantation area, sufficiency of the donor field and tissue quality. The operation was taking too long and follicles were getting deformed if it was tried to be finished at 1 session. Then follicles were getting less and were being lost for nothing.
Hair Transplant Companies and New Technological Pursuits
In 2006 with the new developments in micro motor technologies FUE Technique
has become much more popular. The micro-needles’(punch) ,which used for extracting
hair follicles, thicknesses were ranging between 0.9 - 1 mm.
In the upcoming years it got thinner and based on hair
thickness and the punches became 0.6-0.7-0.8 mm. Owing to thickness of punch FUE Technique avoided leaving scars and
accomplished more natural images.
FUE Technique’s one other advantage is operations are
shorter. On account of shortness, hair follicles are not getting deformed while
they are being transferred.
