What is FUE Hair Transplant?

FUE, or follicular unit extraction, is a revolutionary Hair Transplant in Turkey process that works to reverse the effects balding and hair loss. Available for both men and women, it works by removing hair follicles from elsewhere on the body under local anaesthesia and grafting them onto the affected section of the head.; Typical areas include the crown, front hairline and temples. The newly implanted hair follicles stimulate hair growth in the area and results can be seen in a few short weeks. FUE hair transplant surgery can take place over one session or multiple visits, depending on the severity of the problem and desired outcomes. It must be carried out by a professional, qualified hair transplant surgeon.

How Much Does FUE Hair Transplant Cost in Turkey?

FUE Hair Transplant Cost details can vary, according to how complex the case is and what the patient wants as a desired outcome. It is best to discuss costs and financing options with your hair transplant surgeon or clinic in advance. Check what is included in the price. For instance, the best approaches include care from initial consultations through to the procedure itself and FUE hair transplant after-care. Often, other aspects are also included, such as transport to and from the clinic, collection from nearby airports and hotel accommodation. An online FUE hair transplant calculator can give you a better idea of costs around your individual circumstances.

How Does FUE Hair Transplant Work?

FUE hair transplant surgery works by carefully removing hairs, complete with their follicles, from the sides of the head or nape of the neck using local anaesthesia. The hairs and follicles are then individually transplanted into areas where there is balding, hair thinning or hair loss. At Hair World Turkey, our surgeons use the acclaimed and extremely safe Sapphire FUE technique, which results in quicker healing, shorter surgery times and fewer FUE hair transplant scars. The hairs are carefully placed to look natural. Over a few months, the hair transplant stimulates regrowth in the area, leading to a fuller head of hair. If the patient follows an excellent FUE hair transplant post care routine they can expect to recover from any discomfort caused by the surgery in around seven days.

How is an FUE Hair Transplant Operation Performed?

FUE hair transplant takes place over a number of stages. First of all, you are invited to a consultation with a professional FUE hair transplant surgeon. You can ask any questions you may have about your FUE hair transplant care and see FUE hair transplant before and after photos. After that, your surgery is scheduled and you are given a date and time to attend the clinic for your procedure. You may need more than one session, depending on the size of the area being treated. Our FUE hair transplant team will remain with you throughout your surgery to monitor your health. Afterwards you will be given advice on how to look after yourself as you recover. We will also schedule follow-up appointments to check on your progress.

Recovery After FUE Hair Transplant

How long a recovery after FUE hair transplant will take will depend largely on how well you look after your newly grafted hair in the weeks and months after the procedure. Your surgeon will provide you with full FUE hair transplant after-care instructions. These will cover such areas as when and how often to wash your hair and how to sleep after FUE hair transplant to aid healing. You will also receive dietary and exercise advice and symptoms that could reveal problems with your recovery. You will be given one or more follow-up appointments too. Your hair transplant will be carefully checked and any and all healing progress noted. You will need to take it easier in the initial days and weeks, as well as stay out of direct sunlight and away from harsh chemicals and hair dyes.

FUE Hair Transplant Care

FUE hair transplants differ from alternative procedures, such as FUT and DHI. As such, they require different types of surgery and care. FUT, or follicular unit transplantation, is an older technique that involves taking hair follicles via a strip of skin and transplanting the entire unit into the desired position to stimulate hair regrowth. DHI is also known as direct hair implantation. This involves transplanting one hair follicle at a time, allowing highly accurate placement and minimal scarring. Whichever type of transplant you choose, your surgeon and supporting team will be able to advice you on the best form of care, before, during and after the procedure.

After Care

FUE Hair Transplant After Care

First Few Months
In the first few weeks after FUE hair transplant surgery, the scalp can be red for a while with some swelling. Gently rising the scalp can help reduce the appearance of any scabs and help prevent permanent scarring. The newly transplanted hairs will begin to fall out after a couple of weeks, which is a normal part of the process. The new hair will then take around five to six weeks to start to grow in. During the first month, the area will be extremely vulnerable as it starts to heal. Take extra care not to knock your head or to rub the scalp too vigorously. Follow your surgeon’s post-op care instructions and contact them immediately if you experience any pain or are concerned about any aspect of your recovery.
After Three Months
Over the next couple of months, the hairs will slowly grow to around a quarter of an inch long. They may look weaker and thin at first, but will become thick and strong over time. When you reach the three-month stage, there should be the first signs of new hairs starting to grow through. It is still important to treat the areas gently and to follow hair washing instructions to keep the area clean without damaging the hair or scalp. By six months, results should be far more visible with the whole area that was treated enjoying healthy, thick hair regrowth.
After One Year
Longer-term results from FUE hair transplants can vary for person to person. Some people will find that the full effects have appeared after one year, with their hair growth at a stable point, covering the whole scalp. Others take a little longer to see these results – it can take up to 18 months for the process to be completed for some patients. Results depend on many factors, including the extent of the hair loss and size of area treated, the person’s overall hair quality and how well they have coped with post-transplant care. The regrowing hair will be delicate at first and should be protected and kept out of direct sunlight – even at the one-year point.
How to Wash Hair After FUE Hair Transplant
Gently washing your scalp after FUE hair transplant can actually help hair regrowth, as well as keep the area clean and free from grease and dirt. The key word here is ‘gentle’. Too harsh a wash and the follicles can become damaged or even fall out too soon. Avoid contact with fingernails or tugging at the hair as you wash. Wait two to four days before giving your hair its first wash after surgery. Use a shampoo that doesn’t contain any harsh parabens. Wash in the same direction as the grafted follicles. Don’t rub in circles or move horizontally. By the end of the second week, you should be able to start massaging the area, again very gently at first. Use warm (not hot) water, rinse thoroughly and pat dry with a paper towel.

Advantages of FUE Hair Transplant

As with any surgical procedure, there are FUE hair transplant pros and cons. Advantages include a reduction in scarring due to the minimally invasive procedure involved. This cuts down on pain, discomfort and recovery times for patients too. Results are natural looking and long-lasting. People who have reported feeling a loss of self-confidence with thinning hair can feel proud of the results. There are no stitches to take out at a later date. While clinics do ask patients to attend follow-up appointments, these are generally not time-consuming and are a key part of the recovery process. The hair that grows back is usually of excellent quality and thickness, enabling it to blend in with existing hair.

Who is a Good Candidate for FUE Hair Transplant?

The best candidates for FUE hair transplant are generally people who have experienced, or are concerned about developing hair thinning or loss on the top if the head and the areas nearer the front, hairline and crown. Suitable people should ideally have plenty of healthy donor hair on the back of the head. This gives the surgeon more options to extract and regraft healthy hair follicles, leading to better FUE hair transplant results. The procedure works best for people who are willing and able to commit to the correct after-care procedures and who take their recovery seriously. The process works well as a way to regrow shorter hairstyles as well as for people seeking FUE hair transplant long hair solutions.

Who is Not a Good Candidate for FUE Hair Transplant?

It should be noted that not everyone makes a good candidate for FUE hair transplant surgery. This is why a full medical history must be taken before a surgeon or clinic can proceed with any medical treatments. Examples of when the procedure is not advised is for people experiencing hair loss due to, or following a period of stress, trauma or anxiety. FUE hair transplant is also not a viable option if you have no hair left whatsoever from which a surgeon can extract follicles to regraft. There may also be other illnesses, medical conditions and mental health issues that prevent this type of surgery from taking place. It is best to seek expert medical advice and proceed from there.

Frequently Asked Questions
The state-of-the-art hair transplant techniques that have been developed over the years have assisted to enhance the results to amazing natural looking levels. While it still depends on the skill and experience of the hair transplant surgeon somewhat, with some of the latest technologies, the results of hair transplant operation can look so natural that it may appear as though you never had any missing hair at all. Of course since the process has become much more meticulous and precise, this means that the end result is even more realistic when performed by a skilled surgeon. That being said, hair transplant will also change your look completely, most likely making sure you reacquire the look of your youth once again in a successful operation. During older hair transplant techniques large strips of skin with healthy hair follicles called grafts were removed from the nape or sides of the head and then were transplanted to the areas of baldness or where hair was thinning. Because these strips may have had a high amount of individual hairs looking in different directions attached to them, the results could look less than natural. But with modern techniques such as FUE, hair grafts are removed in smaller sections, sometimes even holding even a single follicle, and they are grafted to achieve a look as natural as possible.
In most cases, patients will see results of their hair transplant procedure between six and nine months after surgery. In some rare cases, it may take 12 months, because of the natural cycle of a hair follicle's life. It’s very important to note that between two and eight weeks after the procedure, all of the transplanted hair will fall out. This is normal and expected. In addition, by the third month after the procedure, the hair may look even thinner than before you had the transplant. Again, this is normal and expected. During this period, hair follicles are in the hibernation and rooting phases, where they connect with the infrastructure of your body to once again collect necessary nutrients and materials to grow healthy hair. During this phase, you may assist your hair by using medicine. Your doctor may recommend medicine that treats hair loss to get the best results from a hair transplant, as it will help to counter the natural hair loss and thinning that can continue in the area among the hair that already existed there.
FUE hair transplant procedure is painless when local anesthesia is used. FUE hair transplant procedure is a medical operation, even though it is less invasive and limited in scope than other operations. As such, it does cause some discomfort, usually defined by most patients as a mosquito bite, which can be annoying in large numbers. To alleviate this and to have the experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible, local anesthesia is provided to the patient via normal or needle free injector. The intravenous sedation to provide the local anesthesia is administered by an anaesthetist, depending on the age, weight and health conditions of the patient. This will not put the patient fully unconscious, but only relaxed and at ease. The high quality surgical steel grade tools that will be used during the procedure will also cause little, if any discomfort. In addition, it may be possible to use more specialized blades, and have the special wound dressings done right after the operation, then replaced the day after by our health-care professionals will affect the overall comfort of the patient.
The cost of hair transplantation in Turkey depends on variables such as the number of grafts you need and the type of technique and technology used. The cost of a hair transplant in Turkey can range from $3,500 to $7,500, including accommodation and transportation costs, depending on the type of surgery required, the clinic chosen, and the surgeon assigned. In other parts of the world such as Dubai, Canada, London, the cost for the FUE hair transplant method can be as high as $12,000 to $30,000. Depending on your needs and wishes, your surgeon will examine your scalp and decide how many sessions you need. Approximately 3000,4500 grafts are transplanted in 1 session.
Hair Transplantation process, Although it varies according to the number of roots planted and the quality of the team, it takes an average of 6-8 hours.
