Compulsive Hair Pulling


Trichotillomania - Stress affects everyone, and every individual has a different way of dealing with it. Some people wash their hands again and again, while others bite their nails whereas many others have foods or clean up everything. Trichotillomania, also known as Compulsive Hair Pulling, is regarded as a form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Many people, most of them women, have the irresistible tendency to pull out hair from their eyelashes, eyebrows etc – most often unconsciously. This is a disorder and after some time, bald spots arise in the sites from where hair has been pulled out. Find out how these sites are treated in SHIFT Hair Transplant and other top centres.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

This is a more recent method and is more famous than FUSS. The method involves transplanting of hair strands from the sides and the back of the head in clusters of 1 – 4, aping the natural growth of hair. As this method resembles the actual growth of hair, it offers more natural results. The process has another benefit in the sense that it does not include any deep or major invasive surgeries. Thus, there is shorter recovery time and fewer scars on the site.

Scalp Reduction

This technique is performed only rarely during hair transplant in Turkey. The bald spot is removed surgically, and the spot bearing hair is stretched for replacing the amount of hair that has been pulled out. This is a very expensive technique. It can increase the risks of scalp tightening, which can lead only to scalp thinning.

Follicular Unit Transfer (FUT)

In this method, separate grafts or follicular units are gradually extracted from the back section of the head by using a specialized, small tool to cut around them and extract the grafts. It involves injecting a few anaesthetics to patients, which can make the method painless for them. Larger sections of bald patches can be covered by surgeons in SHIFT Hair Transplant in only a few sessions. Surgeons can achieve better results due to a lower resection rate.
