What is FUE Hair Transplantation?

What is FUE hair transplant? Let’s answer the question briefly. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method is the extraction of hair follicles one by one with 0.8 mm punch needles from the donor area with the help of micro motors after the person’s head is anesthetized and transplanted one by one to the area to be treated.

In short, recently, hair transplant operations are performed with the most preferred FUE method in Turkey.

In other words, this technique is preferred by the patients since no surgical action occurs. In summary, in the FUE method, the hair is taken one by one and transferred to the balding area.

Features of Fue technique;

FUE Hair Transplant
  • In the donor area where the grafts are taken, only the hair follicle cells are taken without removing (cutting) the scalp.
  • There is no incision or stitching in the donor area. In the area where the roots are taken, pits with a diameter of less than 0.8 mm are formed. These abrasions close in a few days and heal without leaving any traces.
  • In the FUE technique, the grafts obtained from the nape area are used in hair transplantation as well as in eyebrow, mustache and beard transplantation.
  • Approximately 4,000 to 6,000 grafts are transplanted in one session.
  • The absence of pain for days after the hair transplant operation and the short recovery period are also reasons for choosing this technique.
  • The patient may experience a temporary shedding in the first month of the hair transplant operation. After hair transplantation, these shed hairs start to grow and grow after 4 to 5 months.
  • In a few months, the hair becomes noticeably denser.
  • Depending on the hair loss in hair transplantation, the number of grafts to be taken, the way the roots are taken, the opening of the channels and the direction of the hair while placing them in these channels are important steps.
  • Continuously growing hair not only changes the appearance of the person, but also affects the psychology positively.
  • Hair Transplantation requires talent, experience and a professional team. This is one of the most important factors affecting the outcome of the hair transplant operation. Having healthy, natural hair in people who have the procedure increases their self-confidence at the right rate.
