What is the FUE method of hair transplantation?

FUE hair transplantation, a micro-surgical procedure performed in a hospital setting, is the only permanent solution to hair loss. It's a great option for men who are losing their hair due to male pattern baldness or other factors. The procedure's most notable feature is that no incisions are made on the scalp. As a result, the recovery time after surgery is significantly reduced.

 

Hair transplantation using the FUE method involves placing roots taken from the nape area, which contains resistant hair follicles, in the area where hair loss is most severe. The length and direction of hair follicles taken from the donor area must be correctly classified. Moreover, during the entire procedure, extreme caution must be exercised to avoid damaging the roots extracted from the donor area.

 

What are the steps in the FUE procedure?

Hair transplantation with FUE requires local anesthesia. Hair follicles are collected one by one after local anesthesia is applied to the treatment area. The FUE motor, which has incision tips ranging from 0.6 to 0.8 mm, is used to collect the roots. 2-3 hair follicles are found in each graft. It's important to avoid damaging the hair follicles during this procedure. Furthermore, because thousands of roots will be collected from the donor area, the motor's small tip will aid in the healing process.

Following the collection of healthy hair follicles from the donor area, channels in the targeted area are opened to begin the hair transplantation process, and the roots are placed in the targeted area. Root canal opening is just as important as root collection and requires special attention.

Another important consideration in FUE hair transplantation is the angle of the canal into which the hair follicles will be placed. The correct hair transplantation angle is the most important factor in achieving natural results in hair transplantation. The correct determination of the hairline prior to the operation is another important factor in achieving naturalness.

What should be taken into account prior to the operation?

Before undergoing a hair transplant using the FUE method, there are a few things to consider.

  • Smoking should be stopped one day prior to the operation.
  • Three days prior to the operation, no alcohol should be consumed.
  • Blood thinners and anticoagulants should be avoided two weeks prior to surgery.
  • Hair should not be cut prior to the procedure.
  • It is beneficial to massage the scalp for 15 minutes every day for a few weeks to increase blood flow.
  • You should take the medications that your doctor has prescribed for you.
  • Antidepressants, vitamins, and supplements should not be taken for two weeks prior to surgery.

What should be considered after the operation?

You should rest for a day after the operation. You can return to daily life the next day.

The amount of water consumption should not be less.

Washing should be done by being careful not to touch the hair transplant area with hair lotion for 10 days.

After the operation, the amount of salt consumption should be reduced.

You must strictly follow the instructions given by your doctor.

It takes 9 months for the transplanted hair to come out completely, so you have to be patient.

Hair Transplantation with FUE 

After hair transplantation using the FUE method, 60 to 80 percent of the transplanted hair should regrow.

The washing procedure is performed 48 hours after the hair transplantation operation with the FUE method, as it is with the DHI method. The new hair that grows in the hair transplanted area takes three weeks to grow, but it sheds after a month. There's no need to be concerned. This is not a permanent situation; it is part of a natural progression. The hair then begins to regrow, and by the sixth month, it is back to normal. However, it may take longer in some areas.

The hair follicles cling to the scalp with a 98 percent success rate after the procedure. To ensure that the efficiency you will receive after the operation is not low, you should choose a specialist and professional hair transplant center.

Price of FUE Hair Transplant 

The FUE method, like other methods, does not have a set fee for hair transplantation. The fee for the operation will be determined based on the individual and the technique to be used. One of the pricing criteria is the number of hair follicles to be collected and transplanted.

Frequently Asked Questions About FUE

What is the reason why the hair follicles to be transplanted are taken from the nape area?

Because the hair in the nape area is insensitive to testosterone, it does not fall out. Hair follicles in the nape area are preferred because they are less susceptible to shedding. Hair follicles can be taken from other parts of the body, such as the chest if the hair in the nape area is insufficient or shed due to a different reason.

Who is eligible for FUE Hair Transplantation?

Those who are genetically predisposed to regional hair loss

Men over the age of 20,

It is appropriate for women who are experiencing significant hair loss as well as anyone who is unhappy with the appearance of their hair and desires denser hair.

• Infection symptoms
