FUE Hair Transplant

The FUE hair transplantation method (Follicular Unit Extraction), which began to be applied in the 2000s, has brought about a number of fundamental changes in hair transplantation operations that have been carried out to date. Some of the innovations brought by FUE hair transplantation method include:

In FUE method, the scalp is not incised(like FUT technique); this is a very important factor for patient comfort during both the procedure and the healing process.

No suture is required after hair transplant.

The fact that there will be no scar and incision after FUE hair transplant is reflected in the aesthetic appearance of the hair and stops the anxiety felt by patients.

FUE Hair transplant is performed under local anesthesia. Operation is performed through one day by giving regular pauses.

How is FUE Hair Transplant Performed?

First, it is determined whether hair transplantation is required with first examination. If the hair transplantation expert examines that the hair follicles are living or there is a temporary hair loss, then expert will look for solutions to strengthen the hair follicles.

Once the hairy area from where hair is taken for transplantation is prepared for the procedure, the suitable hair follicles are collected one by one. Through the FUE motor, the hair follicle collection process is performed with punches smaller than 1 mm. Collected follicles (grafts) contain 2-3 hair cells. It is a very important point that the hair follicles are not damaged. This is directly related to the experience of the team. Since thousands of hair follicles will be removed from the donor area during hair transplantation, the small size of the tips used will affect the healing process.

Hair follicles collection is a process that requires care and effort. The patient can have up to 10.000-12.000 hair strands with collected grafts in a transplant.

After all the hair follicles are collected, they are separated. After the separation of all hair follicles individually, transplantation procees begin.

For transplantation, channels must be opened very carefully first. Channel opening is a process that requires precision and experience as much as hair follicle collection.

The channels opened at the correct size and depth affect the hair growth rate at the hair transplantation.

Another important issue is the angle of the channel where the hair follicle will be transplanted. Angles, which are the most important factor in capturing the natural hairstyle, should be given in different parts of the head. Otherwise, the hair will not take the desired shape. Failure to succeed in giving angles may even result in hair that grows in different directions.

Another factor to get the most natural result is the correct determination of the hairline. The area of ​​the forehead and hair line should be determined by calculating the correct proportions.

How long does the hair transplant procedure take?

It is necessary to be available for an entire day for the operation. In the first 2-3 hours of the operation, the hair follicles are collected; and the entire operation can last between 5 to 8 hours including the resting periods. During the surgery, the patient can watch a movie, use a tablet computer and so on. in other words, this process is more comfortable than it is thought.

What should patient do before the hair transplant surgery?

After the person has selected the hair transplant clinic which he thinks is right for himself and will not hesitate about, he should make an appointment and see the expert. After detailed analysis and exam, necessary information will be given to the patient.

In this examination, the patient should be able to speak with the expert without any hesitation and get the answers. This is important in terms for the patient to know and be prepared for what he will experience during the hair transplantation and post-treatment period, as well as ensuring that the patient is comfortable and free of anxiety.

In addition, it is very important for the patient to share every detail about his medical condition with the hair transplant expert in terms of the treatment planning. In particular, the assessment of the conditions and medications of diabetes, blood pressure and cardiac patients is very important. As a result of the expert's assessment, it may be a matter of delaying or cancel the hair transplant surgery.

It is important to note that hair transplantation is a surgical procedure and every step should be taken according to the rules for both the sake of patient and expert.

Anticoagulant medications should be avoided at least 5 days prior to surgery, or at a time the hair transplant expert recommends.

A few days before the hair transplantation, the patient should avoid stress, alcoholic beverages, caffeinated drinks and smoking.

In the morning of the operation, hair should be washed; hair products like cream or cosmetic products of any kind should not be used.

Since the operation is not performed under general anesthesia, the patient should definitely be on full stomach before the hair transplantation.
