What Are Afro Hair Transplantation Methods? How To Determine?

The 'gold standard' of hair transplant techniques is the Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE method. This method has replaced the Follicular Unit Transfer or strip harvesting method. The FUE method involves a skilled surgeon removing follicular units from the donor area using a punch tool. A follicular unit is a small piece of tissue consisting of four or five hair follicles and 20 hairs. These units are then transplanted as entire units into small holes created by the surgeon. The result is a natural look with minimal scarring.

In contrast to this method, FUT involves the surgeon removing a strip of skin from the donor site, usually from the back of the head from one ear to the other. The strip can be 1 to 1.5 cm long, leaving a noticeable scar. The hair transplant team separates the follicles and prepares them for the transplantation process.

Afro-type hair, which is generally curly and has larger follicles, is difficult to remove without damage. That's why some clinics only offer the FUT method. Black skin also carries a greater risk for a condition called “keloid scarring.” This type of wound, which causes lumps and large scar tissue under the skin surface, is caused by the use of larger tools when removing follicular units in the FUE procedure. The frontal hairline should be taken into consideration as it is different from Caucasians and Asians, i.e. much straighter.

Therefore, only the most skilled surgeons can offer the FUE method for Afro hair.

Many offer a test to see if you are suitable for a hair transplant, and if so, you will qualify for a successful FUE hair transplant.

As Este Moda Hair Transplantation Center, we host our patients in Istanbul, Antalya and Adana for 3 nights and 4 days. We perform hair transplantation and first washing procedures here. On the first day, the patient is hosted at the hotel to rest. The operation starts on the morning of the second day. On the third day, dressing procedures are performed for 15-20 minutes. On the fourth day, the first washing process, which takes approximately 1 hour, is performed. After the first wash, you will be transferred to the airport. So you can return home in the afternoon.

Afro hair type (curly, wavy, or kinky hair) was a more challenging hair transplant type. Because of the hair’s anatomical variations, we used to have difficulties in extracting them during the hair transplant surgery. Fortunately, all these aspects are left behind. Thanks to advancements in an FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction/Excision), hair transplant for those with afro hair has become more accessible, with better results and higher survival rates.

Eyebrow transplants can help individuals enhance their eyebrows’ shape, fill in sparse areas and even restore thinning or patchy eyebrows. They are also entirely natural-looking and generally require very minimal maintenance after the procedure has been completed.

For people who do not have a sufficient number of grafts in the donor area, hair transplantation can be performed with the latest technology hair transplantation methods. If the person does not have enough grafts in the nape of the neck, he/she can have hair transplanted from the beard, hair transplanted from the chest hair, or especially hair transplanted from the chest hair.

If you wish, you can find out free of charge whether you are suitable for hair transplantation or not, and you can also request before and after photos of our patients who have had hair transplantation from their body hair.
