Lateral Slit Hair Transplant: Maximal Density, Minimal Scarring

Over the past few years, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplantation has become one of the most pioneering hair restoration techniques. With the modern cosmetic surgery technology evolving in every aspect of our lives, better, quicker and more efficient hair transplant Turkey methods are always coming up to provide patients with natural results to live up to their expectation. One such technique is the Lateral Slit Technique, also referred to as Coronal or Perpendicular Grafting. This technique’s name was inspired by how the angle and direction of the incision are made.

Why lateral slit hair transplant technique?

The grafts that have been implanted using the Lateral Slit technique look and feel more natural as compared to other traditional hair restoration techniques. Another added benefit of employing Lateral Slit Technique is that it enables hair transplant experts to control the grafts exit angle, which makes for better scalp coverage. Better coverage means more density.

 The lateral graft technique also allows the surgeon to create a more pleasing visual coverage of the thinning scalp by letting the surrounding hairs to layer over one another. For patients suffering from advanced hair loss—where the donor area falls short of hair grafts— Lateral Slit technique is highly appropriate.

When applying this technique, FlyHealth hair transplant Turkey clinics use custom sized blades, which allow our hair transplant experts to perfectly match the graft and opening size. Using such acute precision allows the hair transplant surgeon to accurately place grafts in between any existing hairs. This, therefore, increases graft survival and is one of the contributing factors to surgery’s success rate.

At his hair transplant clinic in Istanbul, Dr. Selahattin Tulunay exclusively provides this latest and state-of-the-art hair transplant technique for an affordable cost, allowing many oversees patients to save up to 70 percent on the their treatment—and restore their confidence and youthful appearance.

The additional benefit of this technique is their aesthetic result and dense coverage. The direction in which each follicular unit graft is inserted can also impact the ultimate appearance of density; this is because hairs within a follicular unit are typically next to each other inline.

Hence by arranging each multiple hair graft on the scalp in a linear fashion to the line of sight, each follicular unit will give the appearance of density and fullness. Moreover this also mimics how hair is normally aligned on the scalp.

“With Lateral Slit Technique and our advanced instruments, we currently use customer-customized approach, which allow us to achieve the perfect fit and the highest degree of density possible.” says Dr. Tulunay, award winner of the “Best Cosmetic Surgeon of 2012.
