FUE Hair Transplant in Turkey

Last edited, 5 April 2024

In my opinion Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) represents a cutting-edge approach to hair transplantation. This technique involves the surgical extraction of individual hair follicles from a designated ‘donor site’ on the body, followed by their implantation into the ‘recipient site’ or the balding area on the scalp. Distinguished from traditional hair transplant methods, FUE is minimally invasive, leaves no linear scars, and assures a quicker recovery period.

In the contemporary world, the subject of FUE hair transplant holds substantial importance. Hair loss, a condition that affects nearly 60% of men and 50% of women at some stage in their lives, has led to an escalating demand for efficient and less invasive hair restoration solutions. FUE, with its innovative technique and successful outcomes, serves as a ray of hope for individuals grappling with hair loss.

The Ice FUE Method Option

The ICE approach has greatly increased the success rate of hair transplants. The hair is placed in transplanting containers after the surgeon has properly selected the hair and retrieved the follicles from the donor area.

A very low temperature is maintained in the liquid in which the hair is immersed. This gives the grafts a life expectancy of more than 4-6 hours when they are outside the scalp. In addition to helping to maintain the health of the transplanted hair and giving them a boost, the solution they are maintained in also contains vitamins, biotin, and antioxidants. The therapy that the hair grafts get during the frozen FUE hair transplant greatly increases their chance of survival.

Until the time the hair follicles are transplanted into the recipient area, they will be kept in the transplanting containers, being given the best possible chance at survival. When the Ice FUE method is used in conjunction with the Ideal Sapphire FUE hair transplant method, it results in a higher chance of success and as well as more natural-looking hair.

Our specialists will discuss with you whether this method is beneficial to you.

A Better Understanding of How FUE Works

The follicular unit extraction, or FUE, process is a hair transplant technique that is secure, reasonably quick, and is intended for patients who wish to conceal a balding scalp. The FUE hair transplant procedure entails removing healthy, strong hair follicles from an area of your body where hair is growing and implanting them in the target location on your body.

There are typically two different kinds of FUE methods, namely the standard FUE method which makes use of a scalpel, and the Sapphire FUE method which makes use of a sapphire blade.

A contemporary and visually acceptable method of hair transplantation in Turkey is FUE. The sapphire FUE hair transplant in Turkey procedure is regarded as non-invasive, safe, virtually scar- and pain-free.

A sapphire blade allows precise incisions, quick healing and recuperation, and an improved FUE hair transplant in Turkey procedure. Additionally, the Sapphire blades give you the assurance to carry out the process securely in case you have a metal allergy.

The After Care for FUE Transplantation

After you receive your FUE hair transplant in Turkey, you will need to take good care of your newly transplanted hair to ensure optimal hair transplant results. We supply you with a hair transplant recovery box that includes products to assist with helping your heal faster. In addition to this, there are a few things you do to improve your hair transplant results.

Both before and after your hair transplant, the consulting doctor will go over all the necessary steps you need to take to ensure you get the best possible results.

Hair Growth After FUE hair Transplant in Turkey

There are a few things you should know about hair growth after an FUE hair transplant in Turkey. Firstly, you will notice that within the first 3 months after your hair transplant, hair will fall out. There is no need to worry, as this is completely normal. Only 6 months after a hair transplant will you start noticing new hair growth. Most people will only see their final results 12 months after their hair transplant but it does vary from person to person, so it can take a bit longer than that.

Understanding FUE Hair Transplant

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a surgical procedure for hair transplantation. It involves the extraction of individual hair follicles from a donor area, typically the back of the head, and their subsequent implantation into the balding regions. This minimally invasive technique does not leave a linear scar, making it a preferred choice for patients desiring a natural-looking solution to hair loss.

The principle behind FUE is based on the comprehension of hair growth patterns. Hair naturally grows in clusters of 1 to 4 hairs, termed as follicular units. FUE capitalizes on this natural grouping by extracting and transplanting these units, ensuring a natural and harmonious blend with the existing hair. Each follicle comprises sebaceous (oil) glands, nerves, a tiny muscle, and occasional fine vellus hairs. These elements contribute to the natural appearance and texture of the transplanted hair.

The Surgeon's Role in FUE Hair Transplant

The surgeon’s role in FUE hair transplant is pivotal, demanding a high degree of skill and precision. The surgeon must meticulously extract the follicular units without causing damage and then implant them at the correct angle and direction to ensure a natural-looking outcome. Additionally, the surgeon must possess a profound understanding of hair growth patterns and aesthetics to design a hairline that enhances the patient’s facial features and is appropriate for their age.

How to Mitigate Risks

I think that risk mitigation is crucial and begins with the selection of a qualified and experienced surgeon. Patients should adhere to all the pre-operative and post-operative instructions provided by their surgeon. This includes refraining from smoking and alcohol, maintaining a healthy diet, and taking prescribed medications as directed. It is also important for patients to set realistic expectations about the results and understand that the full effects of the transplant may take several months to manifest.

Risks and Challenges of FUE Hair Transplant

Despite being a minimally invasive procedure, FUE hair transplant is not devoid of potential side effects and complications. Post-procedure, patients may experience symptoms such as swelling, bruising, and tenderness in both the donor and recipient areas. Although rare, due to the sterile conditions maintained during the procedure, there is a risk of infection. In certain instances, patients may undergo shock loss, a temporary hair loss triggered by the trauma of surgery. However, this condition is typically temporary, with hair regrowth occurring within a span of three to six months.

Post-Surgery Care and Maintenance

In my opinion post-surgery care plays a vital role in the success of an FUE hair transplant. This involves maintaining scalp hygiene, avoiding strenuous activities, and sleeping in an upright position for the initial days following the procedure. Patients are also advised to avoid direct sunlight exposure and to use a special shampoo for hair washing. Regular follow-up appointments with the surgeon are necessary to monitor the healing process and the progress of the hair growth.
