Frequently Asked Questions
The operations have being performed since 2005..
Jinemed prefers to use the FUE ( follicler unit extraction) method for the operations. This technique gives better results compared to the FUT ( follicler unit transplantation) technique. The main difference is with the FUE we can replace single units to the cells on the bold areas , but with FUT we need to place grafts over a line and not all get implanted. Also at the beginning of the operation there was a surgical opening on the person's head but with the FUE this surgical operation is not necessary.But in certain cases we can also combine both techniques. FUE does not leave a scar on the head as well.
A consultation will be done with the doctor. The patient shall not use alcohol for a few days before the operation. It is dangerous for patients with cardiac problems and hypertension problems to undergo this operation. We we wouldnt recommend the operation on them. The patient shall eat before the operation.
The operation lasts for 4-5 hours mainly. The patient watches movies or reads magazines during this time.
We mainly implant 2500-3000 grafts however with some patients we also implanted 4000-4500 units. We take the grafts mainly from the back of the head. In some cases chest hair could also be used. In the FUE operation the head is shaved.
