Many people experience hair loss (alopecia) as they get older. A receding hairline is the most common first sign of androgenetic hair loss. Individuals may notice that their hairline is gradually receding. Thinning or balding is most common on the sides of the head or around the temples. Hair loss has many causes such as changes in the testosterone hormone or even vitamin deficiency. To prevent this surgeons advice hair transplants or topical treatments like oils, minoxidil, finasteride. The topical treatments and oral vitamins can help the hair regrow but signs of hair loss may continue in their further lives.
At Global Medical Care, our doctors provide surgical hair loss treatment to restore thicker, fuller hair to balding areas. To treat receding temples, we can perform hair transplant surgery in Turkey.
Receding Temple Donor Sites
Hair transplant surgery is usually a good option for patients seeking treatment for receding temples. Hair transplant surgery can only be successful if the patient has healthy hair follicles that can be used as donors. Donor hair follicles are extracted from their natural location on the scalp and transplanted to the area of hair loss.
Finding a suitable donor site may be difficult if hair loss is severe. When hair loss is concentrated on the temples, however, there are frequently numerous potential donor sites. Hair follicles are typically extracted from the side or back of the scalp, where hair is more resistant to male pattern baldness.
Techniques for Transplantation
Our surgeons typically use one of two techniques when performing hair transplant surgery for receding temples: donor strip harvesting or follicular unit extraction.
Strip harvesting: The strip harvesting technique involves making horizontal incisions along the back or side of the scalp and removing an entire strip of hair follicles at once. In order to avoid damaging hair follicles, our surgeons carefully place incisions. Incisions are also precisely closed to promote healing and reduce scarring. After removing the strip of hair follicles, they can be transplanted to the donor site.
Follicular unit extraction (FUE): Follicular unit extraction (FUE) removes individual hair follicles from the donor site through a series of small circular incisions. Before being transplanted to the treatment site, all extracted follicles are carefully examined for viability. The FUE technique produces less visible scarring and a shorter recovery time. Patients who prefer to keep their hair short may benefit from this method.
Direct Hair Implantation: DHI is a modified form of FUE hair implantation that uses a similar procedure. Your surgeon will extract hair follicles from a balding area of your scalp, usually the back of your head, and implant them in the balding area. These follicles will eventually produce new hairs.
Our doctors discuss each of these techniques in greater detail with our patients, assisting them in selecting the surgical method that is best suited to their specific needs and desires.
Hair follicles will fall out of the treatment site within a few weeks of hair transplant surgery. Patients should understand that this is a completely normal part of the healing process. The follicles will produce new hair three months after treatment. New hair is likely to be thin at first, but growth and thickness will gradually increase.
Growth should be noticeable between six months and a year after hair transplant treatment. The temples will be fuller, and the hair line will appear naturally healthy.
What Is the Appropriate Level of Baldness for Hair Transplants?
But, what is the ideal level of pre-operative baldness for hair transplants? In this section, our team discusses how much existing hair is required prior to these treatments, as well as a few other factors that can influence your candidacy.
Hair restoration advancements have resulted in the development of several new and improved techniques. For example, we employ a variety of techniques to assist our patients in achieving dramatic, natural-looking results, the methods are called:
- Trichophytic Closure
- Lateral Slit Technique
- Stick-and-Place Technique
- Follicular Unit Preparation
With these advanced techniques and practices, we can even improve the results of previous hair transplants or conceal facelift scars.
Knowing how much hair is needed prior to your procedure is an important part of understanding the treatment process. Individuals having FUT should have at least two months of growth on the day of surgery. The patient will be able to easily conceal the incision with hair in the area as a result of this.
If you are a FUE candidate, your surgeon will need to shave a small section of your scalp. The rest of your hair, on the other hand, can be left alone.
Can I Get Hair Restoration Even if I’m Completely Bald?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions at our practice. In a nutshell, it depends. The fringe of hair near the back of the head is the most important factor in hair transplant eligibility. This is the supply of donors. If the area has high-quality hair, you are most likely a candidate. If this is not the case, your doctor may discuss other treatment options with you.
Furthermore, the type of hair loss you have is an important factor in determining candidacy. Those who experience consistent hair loss across their entire scalp are unlikely to be candidates for hair transplantation.
Our doctors at Global Medical Care provide surgical hair loss treatments to restore thickness and length to areas of hair loss. Contact us as soon as possible to learn more about our treatment options and surgical techniques.
