The process of taking hair follicles that are resistant to baldness in certain parts of the body and transferring them to bald areas is called hair transplantation. Although hair loss is more common in men due to hormonal or environmental reasons, it can also occur in women. In hair transplantation, the hair of the back of the head is preferred most often because it is resistant to these hormones, but the hair of the chest, arms, legs, etc. is preferred. It is also possible to transfer from the regions. The memory of the hairs taken from the back of the head is resistant to shedding. The procedure, which was initially performed in the form of transplantation of hair follicles separated from the tissue taken from the back of the head with an incision, has now been replaced by the method of removing individual hairs (FUE: follicular unit transplantation) that does not leave any traces. With the developing technology, Fue hair transplantation method is one of the peak technologies. Hair transplantation with the Fue method means the removal of the root of the hair.
