While Turkey is appreciated worldwide for its successful results in hair transplantation applications, the FUE method is the main point of this success. Turkey’s leading and most preferred hair transplant method is the FUE hair transplant technique. This method has been accepted worldwide and successfully applied to millions of patients. The FUE technique is a hair transplant method that consists of different stages and is usually completed in a single session.
FUE hair transplant Turkey is a three-stage procedure with its full name follicular unit extraction. It is based on taking hair grafts from the donor area with healthy hair follicles, opening a canal to the place to be transplanted, and transplanting the hair follicles into the channels. During the procedure, local anesthesia is applied to the scalp, preventing the patient from feeling pain or suffering. It is an application completed within 7-8 hours and does not require hospitalization. People can continue their daily lives after the procedure.
Working meticulously before and during the FUE hair transplant Turkey procedure is extremely important. The examinations of your doctor determine the donor area where the hair follicles will be taken. Generally, the nape area, which is aligned between the two ears, is the ideal area for hair follicle collection.
The most suitable hairline is designed for the patient’s facial features and face shape. It is critical to determine the correct hairline for a hair transplant to look natural. After all these processes, the turn is in the implementation phase.
The first step in treating FUE hair transplant in Turkey is the collection of hair follicles. After all the planning, the hair is shaved, and the patient is prepared for the procedure. The donor area is disinfected and ready for hair follicles. Roots are collected from the donor area with fine-tipped micromotors. During the collection process, attention is paid to the follicle area in which the roots are located. The collection of hair follicles according to the exit angle from the follicle channel is one of the crucial points of the FUE hair transplant Turkey procedure.
While the grafts are being collected, they are collected by paying attention to the alignment of the hair follicles to avoid hair thinning in the donor area. Hair roots are selected one by one. The grafts taken without damage are carefully cleaned and deposited to wait in a special solution. With all these steps, the collection of hair follicles is completed.
In the second stage, channels are opened in the areas to be planted. Micro channels are opened in numbers determined with a special hair transplant pen on the site with baldness or hair thinning. Microchannels should be opened under the natural direction of hair growth. This process is a point that requires the expertise of the planter. The opened channels heal within a few days after the procedure. Thanks to their micro size, they do not require stitches, and their scars gradually disappear ten days after the process.
The last stage of the FUE method is planting the taken roots into the opened canals. The collected hair follicles are planted in the channels opened one by one. Grafts should be implanted carefully without being damaged. Otherwise, the success rate of the treatment drops drastically. At this stage, synchronous work and talent are required. After planting in the opened channels, the procedure is completed.
In the FUE method, the number of grafts transplanted in one session varies depending on the bald area of the person and the number of hair follicles obtained. If the donor area is suitable, approximately 2500 hair follicles are collected in a single session. Each hair follicle contains three hair strands on average. It means that about 6000 hairs are transplanted in a single session.
The transplanted hair follicles are shed in the first month after Turkey hair transplant. There should be no concern about spillage. Then, within three months, new hair follicles become visibly evident. In the first six and seven months, 70% of the hair has grown and started to grow. Within a year after the FUE hair transplant Turkey operation, people regain their natural and bushy hair.
