What is an FUE hair transplant?
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant method was developed to replace the traditional follicular unit transplantation (FUT) method. This technique provides more coverage and long-lasting natural results. Opting for an FUE hair transplant can give you a natural hairline back with minimal side effects; FUE hair transplant involves the extraction and implantation of individual hair follicles without disrupting the natural form of your hair.
This procedure reduces the chances of scarring and discomfort after the transplant since it requires no cuts and stitches. Our experienced surgeons implement this elegant procedure with utmost attention to detail, so that the downtime and side effects are minimal.
How does an FUE hair transplant process work?
The FUE hair transplant surgery starts after you have decided on the desired hairline with your surgeon. The whole process is carried out under local anaesthesia and involves four simple steps.
Your surgeon will prepare the donor area by applying local anaesthesia. Depending on the specifics of your condition, the hairs around the transplantation area might also be shaved.
The grafts will be harvested from the healthy donor area by using a punch tool or a similar manual surgical instrument. These harvested grafts are collected in an appropriate sterile environment for the relocation process. Ice frozen FUE method involves using medical fridges to increase graft survivability outside of the body.
Your surgeon will prepare the transplantation area for implantation by opening microchannels on the scalp using a needle or a tiny sharp tool.
They will carefully implant the hair follicles into these channels. This procedure is extremely important to achieve a natural hair look.
After these four steps, your surgeon will clean and bandage the area to protect it from external factors. Depending on your specific condition and number of grafts, you may need to complete the FUE hair transplant process in multiple sessions if you need more than 5000 hair grafts.
How much does an FUE hair transplant cost in Turkey?
