FUE Hair Transplantation Process in Turkey
Being the most preferred hair transplantation technique in Turkey and around the world FUE offers the most updated and innovative methods for the most effective hair transplant results.
Before FUE Hair Transplantation
Necessary blood tests are performed to evaluate the health status of the patient before the procedure. The hairline of the patient is determined in a way that best suits the face shape, age and forehead ratio during the planning phase subject to the approval of the patient. The entire head area is required to be shaved in the FUE method.
FUE Hair Transplantation Procedure
During FUE hair transplantation, firstly the donor area where the hair will be taken is numbed with local anesthesia. After the anesthesia, hair follicles are removed one by one with the help of a micromotor.
The removed hair follicles are then collected with special forceps, arranged in single, double, triple or quadruple groups and kept in a special solution at the appropriate temperature. Once enough hair follicles are taken to cover the hair gap of the patient based on the planning, the channel opening process is started. The required canal is opened according to the person's hair direction after numbing the area to be transplanted with local anesthesia.
The most proper procedure of opening the canals is to apply at the right angle and frequently with the appropriate diameter pens. By doing so, the transplantation process will provide a natural hair appearance.
In addition, to ensure a natural hair appearance, the front line should not be straight but should be appropriate to the person's hair direction. Then, finally, the collected hair follicles are placed in the opened canals one by one with special forceps.
After FUE Hair Transplantation
The success of FUE hair transplantation depends on the post-transplantation process rather than the actual transplantation procedure.
Therefore, there are a few key points to pay attention to after FUE hair transplantation:
A hair transplant operation does not require hospitalization. The first point to return to regular life activities. Driving is not recommended on the day of the operation. Rest and use of the prescribed medications properly is strongly suggested.
You should avoid sweating.
Staying away from heavy activities (sports - weight lifting) is necessary.
Alcohol consumption should be avoided during the use of the medication to be recommended such as antibiotics against possible complications. It is recommended not to use tobacco products that prevent the newly planted hair from being nourished with the correct oxygen rate as much as possible and even quit the use of them permanently.
You should stay away from stress. Stress, which is one of the causes of hair loss, can affect newly transplanted hair as well and cause hair loss.
You can lie down so that the areas where the transplantation is performed will not be damaged.
Avoid exposure to heat sources and stay in hot environments for long periods of time.
Protect the transplanted area from impacts and traumas. Wearing headwear such as hats should be avoided for at least 1 week.
Try not to contact the transplanted area with water, hands or anything for 3 days except for ointments to be used as recommended by your doctor. During this time, you should take your showers down the neck with warm water.
You should take your first shower using the method recommended by your doctor.
You should remove crusting using the method recommended by your doctor as well.
FUE Hair Transplantation Result
Shock hair loss is experienced in the transplanted hair in the first three months following the hair transplantation, as a result of the rooting of the newly transplanted hair. Following this inevitable period in the hair transplantation cycle, permanent hair strands will begin to grow. Up to 50% of the transplanted hair will grow by the sixth month, and the growth of hair in the forehead area will be at around 95% within one year. It will take 18 months for all of the hair to grow in the rotating point of the head, which is called the vertex, due to the anatomy-induced blood supply disorder in this area.
