The follicular unit extraction method is the latest method used worldwide in the field of hair transplantation. Turkey is among the countries that are successfully implemented in the world using this method because this technique allows to obtain a more natural result unlike the previous method.
The FUE technique consists in taking, with the help of a motorized rotary punch (0.6-0.7-0.7.5 or 0.8 mm diameter), in the occipital and temporal donor zone, units follicles in order to transplant them directly to the bald region to be treated. Although the quality of follicular sampling is directly dependent operator, improvements in instrumentation have allowed to increase the speed of removal of hair transplants and significantly reduce losses of follicular units and also provides a variable amount of micro-grafts or ultra-micro-grafts of 1 to 4 hairs each. Using this method one can take 2500 up to 5500 hair follicles at a time.
The strengths of the FUE technique
- Up to 5500 follicles in one sitting
- Faster regrowth and natural hair
- Total absence of scar
- The best quality and price ratio in Turkey compared to the number of implanted follicles
For who ?
FUE hair transplant is recommended for patients who do not wish to have scars and for those with mild baldness. It is also recommended for those who do not have a large donor area or who have a tendency to extreme scars, or those who want to have a very short haircut.
Before the intervention:
Before the procedure it is very important to do a preoperative consultation, during which baldness is evaluated, the information is transmitted to the patient, and medical photographs are taken with the doctor to define the needs of the patient.
It is advisable not to consume aspirin or anti-inflammatory as well as stimulants such as coffee or alcohol 48 hours before surgery.
The FUE hair transplant takes place under local anesthesia, but if the patient does not want to feel any pain a sedation can be performed.
Duration of the operation:
The duration of the intervention is approximately 8 to 10 hours, depending on the extent of the area to be covered. The patient is led to lie down throughout the procedure. Breaks will be given to the patient to eat and rest.
The steps of the intervention:
Complete shaving of the head is necessary if the number of grafts to be removed is high. In practice we recommend a complete shave of the donor and recipient zone if the patient needs more than 2500 grafts
The follicle sampling: The average duration is 2 hours
The Doctor places the punch around a follicle, and makes a small rotary movement using micro-instruments while maintaining a slight pressure. This has the effect of separating the follicle from the scalp. The extracted follicles are then sorted and classified according to the number of hair they contain. The doctor's assistant creates rows of follicles with 1 hair, 2 hair, 3 hair etc. This step is very important because all the follicles have a defined function. Follicles to one hair will be used to recreate the frontal line, and to intervene in areas close to the face where the density is progressive. Multiple follicles are used to provide density, and will not be implanted in the frontal line. It is therefore essential for the doctor to know the number of follicles obtained and their nature. This allows it to adopt an implementation strategy based on the number obtained and areas to be restored. FUE hair transplants are extracted one by one, and checked to check their quality and then stored in a specific preservation solution of grafts that is generally used in the field of organ transplantation.
Second step :
Opening of the channels: The average duration is 1 hour
After having decided with the patient the frontal line and the zones of setting of the follicles the doctor opens the channels, it is the most important step in the intervention because in this stage the direction of the hair is defined, more than that of the open channels in a natural way equals a natural result.
Third step :
Implantation of the follicles: The average duration is 3 hours.
The last step of the operation, in this step we deposit the follicles taken in the first step into the open channels in the second step so that the operation touches this end.
Hair transplant surgery is one of the most popular surgical procedures in the world.
There are methods that can be applied to anyone to get healthy hair. Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of hair follicles from the scalp and the entire body.
In hair Mesotherapy, the serum containing the mineral vitamins and other trace elements that your hair needs and enriched them are injected directly into the scalp where the hair root is located.
