Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplantation
Follicular Unit Extraction, shortly FUE, is one of the most preferred methods of hair transplantation. With FUE method, the patient gets local anesthesia on the scalp and hair follicles are extracted from the donor area one by one using a micro-motor device with a tiny tip of 0.5-0.8 millimeters. It is important not to harm or damage the extracted grafts for the results to be successful. Extracted grafts are grouped according to the number of follicles they contain, and stored in a special solution until the implantation to make sure the tissues around the follicles don’t die. Once the extraction process is completed, the donor area will be covered with special bandages, and patient gets a break to rest and eat if hungry.
To implant the extracted grafts, holes are made on the scalp with a special tool after the recipient area is anesthetized with local anesthesia. Once the channels are prepared, extracted grafts are removed from the special solution and placed into the channels one by one. It is important to pay attention on the depth, angle and direction of the implanted follicles to ensure the results look natural. FUE method leaves no visible scars, but the healing period is a little longer. Patients can get back to work comfortably in 3-5 days.
It is very important to follow the doctor’s advices and after care instructions to ensure the procedure is successful. Patients should avoid any physical contact on the area for the first days, and only should touch it for aftercare purposes. Activities such as swimming or environments such as Spas or saunas should be avoided for the first month. Supplements and medicines should be taken as directed by the doctor. Detailed aftercare instructions will be given to the patient by our team after the treatment.
