Hair transplant

Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure designed to address partial hair loss, eyebrow thinning, or partial beard loss. The procedure involves harvesting hair follicles from the densely populated and hormone-resistant back area of the head for transplantation.

Two widely used methods for hair transplantation are Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT).

  1. FUT method: In the FUT method, a small strip of tissue is removed from the back of the head, and the donor area is closed with sutures. Hair follicles are then harvested from the strip using a scalpel. While FUT allows for the transplantation of a significant number of grafts in a single session, it has lost popularity due to the potential for a visible linear scar in the back of the head.
  2. FUE method: In the FUE method, hair follicles are extracted from the donor area using a micro motor or extraction needle with a diameter as small as 0.5–0.9 mm. This ensures quick healing of the donor area with no visible and permanent scars. The FUE method is also suitable for transplanting body hairs, making it the preferred choice in our clinic for hair transplants.

Procedure overview:

  • Operation time is approximately 5-6 hours.
  • The donor area at the back of the head is shaved and treated with local anesthesia.
  • Areas to be treated are shaved and localized with local anesthesia.
  • Hair follicles are individually collected using a Micro Motor, with the potential to harvest 3000-4000 grafts.
  • Once enough follicles are gathered, transplantation is performed in the recipient area.
  • Hospital stay is not required after the procedure.

Results and durability: After the transplantation, new hair growth typically begins to appear around 3 months, with the final result becoming apparent within a year. FUE hair transplants are known for their longevity and are among the most successful treatments for hair loss currently available.

Abdominoplasty (Abdominal lift and tummy tuck)

Abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a suitable procedure for individuals with excess abdominal fat, sagging skin, and weakened abdominal muscles. It is particularly effective in addressing skin issues such as stretch marks resulting from childbirth or weight gain.

During this surgery, both excess fat and stretched skin are removed, and abdominal muscles are reinforced and tightened through sutures.

The procedure commences with a horizontal incision placed just above the pubic area, akin to the location of a C-section incision, and extends laterally toward the pelvic bones. The length of the incision is tailored to the amount of excess skin, always surpassing the length of a typical C-section incision. Whenever possible, efforts are made to keep the incision within the natural bathing suit lines. Additionally, a second incision is made around the navel to facilitate the downward pull of excess skin for removal. Sutures are employed to bring together loose underlying tissue and muscles, enhancing abdominal wall tightness.

Preoperative preparations include abstaining from cigarettes or alcohol intake two weeks before the operation. Patients arrive at the hospital on an empty stomach on the day of the procedure, undergoing blood tests and examinations. Post-surgery, patients typically remain in the hospital for two days. Drains inserted during the operation to prevent blood accumulation are usually removed within an average of 2-4 days. Patients are required to wear a corset for up to 6 weeks and adopt a slightly tilted walking position of approximately 45 degrees during the initial postoperative weeks. The expected time to return to work is about 3-4 weeks. Although scars may appear pink or swollen during the first 3-6 months, improvement and fading usually occur within nine months to a year.

Aesthetic Nose Surgery

Rhinoplasty, the technical term for nose reshaping, aims to improve physical appearance and boost self-confidence.

In cases where there are also breathing difficulties, an additional septoplasty procedure may be incorporated to address anatomical deformities or deviations of the septum, enhancing both aesthetics and functionality.

One of the most intricate aspects of rhinoplasty is bone shaping. To achieve this, we utilize an advanced osteotomy method employing an ultrasonic device called piezzo during surgery. This specialized device is designed to precisely cut bone without causing damage to the skin, blood vessels, or cartilage. This technique minimizes swelling and bruising post-surgery.

Patients scheduled for surgery should arrive at the hospital on the morning of the procedure after an 8-hour fasting period (no food or drink). Upon admission, blood tests and examinations by anesthesia doctors are conducted. The surgery typically lasts around 2 hours, and patients stay in the hospital overnight. Discharge occurs the following day.

Postoperative pain is minimal, and nasal pads are typically removed three days after surgery, with the nasal splint removed on the seventh day. Substantial reduction in swelling is noticeable within 2-3 weeks. Patients can resume their normal lives without overt signs of surgery. It is advisable to avoid nose trauma, refrain from using glasses, and shield the new nose from the sun for 4-6 weeks. The final shape of the nose becomes fully apparent approximately one year after the procedure.

Arm Lift (Brakioplasty)

The upper arms are susceptible to sagging due to the effects of aging, fluctuations in weight, and inherited predispositions. The Vaser liposuction procedure removes excess fat while also helping to tighten the skin on the arms and making them appear more toned.

However, arm lift treatment is the best option if the drooping is severe enough. The excess skin that hangs from the arm is cut away, and the remaining tissues and the upper arm are sutured together before the upper arm is remodeled. Even though the scar will be concealed on the inside of the patient’s arm, this procedure is only indicated for individuals who have significant deformities and sagging.

Breast Augmentation

At this time, using silicone prostheses for breast augmentation is the procedure that is both the most effective and long-lasting. Other methods of breast augmentation include aquafilling and lipofilling, both of which involve the injection of water-binding chemicals.

These are approaches that can be put into action more quickly, but they are not permanent solutions. A permanent prosthesis that requires surgery for implantation, these breasts are made to look, feel, and move much like a natural breast would. They are a type of prosthesis.
