While there are many reasons for hair loss, the most common by far is androgenetic alopecia (pattern hair loss). As the name implies, this type of hair loss commonly follows a specific pattern, starting at the front and working its way back. This means that one of the first signs of hair loss is a receding hairline, exposing more of the forehead. While hair lost in this manner will not regrow on its own, it is possible to restore the hair with a hair transplant.
However, some people may not be experiencing any hair loss, but still desire a lower hairline. While cosmetic procedures – such as plastic surgery – can lower a hairline, the easier choice for most people is a hair transplant. This provides a less invasive option with far less risk of visible scarring.
What Is A Hair Transplant?
Hair transplants are surgical procedures that represent the only truly permanent treatment for hair loss. A hair transplant in Turkey uses a patient’s own hair to fill in the spots left behind by thinning hair. In the most general sense, there are two main types of hair transplant operations; Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). These both have unique pros and cons, but each offers a lifetime of natural final results.
How Does A Hair Transplant Work?
Both DHI and FUE treatments involve removing healthy hair follicles from a donor site (most commonly at the back of the head) and implanting these healthy hair grafts into the recipient site. Once they have taken hold, they act just like the rest of a patient’s natural hair and can but brushed, styled, and cut as needed. We offer a lifetime guarantee that your results will continue to shine.
Follicular Unit Extraction
FUE hair transplants are perhaps the most common type today. The procedure begins by removing the required number of hair follicles from the donor site (typically about 1,000) and storing them in a special, nutrient-rich solution. Then, the hair restoration surgeon uses a sapphire blade to create a series of nearly microscopic channels into which the hair grafts are implanted. For hairline and forehead transplants, these are implanted one at a time to create the most natural-looking final result.
At our clinic, we exclusively use sapphire blades for all FUE hair transplants. This allows for the creation of far narrower channels as well as limiting the risks of bleeding and scarring.
Direct Hair Implantation
DHI transplants are a modified version of the FUE technique. During a DHI hair transplant, each hair follicle is removed individually using a special Choi implanter pen. These healthy hair grafts are then implanted directly into the recipient site. This allows for far more precise placement of the hairs which is of particular importance during a forehead hair transplant.
Can A Hair Transplant Work On A Forehead?
Yes, a hair transplant is a solution for both a receding hairline or a large forehead. Hair transplants represent a far less invasive alternative to hairline lowering surgeries or other cosmetic procedures aimed at reducing the size or height of the forehead. These can often leave behind a visible scar. These other forms of plastic surgery may provide a temporary solution, but do nothing to address actual hair loss.
The most popular form of hair transplant for a forehead is DHI as it allows for the most precise placement of donor hair. This procedure is minimally invasive and can be completed in only a few hours in one sitting. Side effects of a hair transplant include swelling and itching for the first few weeks, but once the hair grafts have rooted, the healing process is complete and there are no lingering effects.
