What is FUE Hair Transplant?

In previous years, the FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) procedure was used to remove a tissue piece from the donor area that was roughly 1 cm wide and 10-15 cm long, and the grafts were cut out one by one from this tissue piece. The highest number of grafts possible with this procedure would be 1500-2000. The space created in the donor area by the tissue removal would be repaired with surgical sutures, resulting in a big scar. It is almost never used nowadays because it has so many drawbacks as compared to the FUE process

Grafts are harvested using the FUE procedure and transplanted using sowing techniques such as DHI, Sapphire FUE, and Unshaven.

What is FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)?

It is a technique with a high success rate, which is performed by placing hair follicles one by one, collected in accordance with the natural hair angle and direction in areas without hair, under local anesthesia and using special micro tips. In today's conditions, hair transplantation offers satisfactory results for people who have baldness problems, thanks to the FUE technique.

For the application of the FUE technique, the area selected for transplanting the roots is shortened to 1 mm before hair transplantation. The area to be transplanted is anesthetized and transplanted to the area without hair strands. Since the surgical incision is not made, the healing process is very fast in the FUE technique, and there is no feeling of pain.

How is FUE Hair Transplantation Performed?


The most important stage of hair transplantation is planning. First of all, each individual applying for hair transplantation has a different expectation from the result. After evaluating the expectation of the person, whether the current situation will meet this expectation should be honestly conveyed in all its reality. Only in this way, a happy patient and a happy result are achieved. The planning is made after all the parameters that will affect the transplant result and the next process, such as shedding status, skin health, underlying health problems, and age, are questioned.

E.g; It may be necessary to wait a little longer for the procedure against the possibility that shedding may continue in later ages in people whose shedding and thinning has just begun, or if there is a situation that disturbs the person, priority is given to the main clarity and it is aimed to protect the existing hair with supportive and protective hair treatment methods for other areas.

Front Hairline

The most crucial aspect of a natural hair transplant is establishing the front hairline. An odd hairline indicates a full failure of the treatment, regardless of how dense and correct angle their density and direction are. At this point, the expert team's experience, interpretation ability, and craftsmanship are the most important factors. The most suitable hairline for your face is sketched with examples in our clinic, and the front hairline design is finalized and the haircut is started once the specialist physician and the patient agree.

Local anesthesia

Local anesthesia

Perhaps many people who have faced the problem of baldness cannot achieve the hairy look they dreamed of, thinking that hair transplantation is very painful. Dr. Este Clinic, all of our hair transplant procedures are localized with a standard painless comfort pressure device.

Only local anesthetic with needle injection was uncomfortable until a few years ago. Because the anesthetic substance was acidic rather than the needle, the burning sensation under the skin harmed the patient's comfort and made the procedure tight and restless to continue. The Comfort pressure anesthetic gadget eliminates 80 percent of this pain sensation. The remaining 20% is light, and anyone with a low pain threshold can easily handle it. You will not feel any of the painful processes until 3-4 hours following the surgery since local anesthetic gives long-term numbness in the entire area to be treated, without the least pain.

Graft Retrieval

Thanks to the FUE technique, the hair follicles on the back of the head, which are resistant to shedding and between the two ears, are collected one by one with the help of a micro motor with punches with a diameter suitable for the thickness of the hair. The most important issue here is donor management. The boundaries of the area, whether there is a skin disease such as eczema dermatitis, and the amount of graft per square centimeter should be carefully calculated. After the procedure, the donor image of the person should not have the slightest indication of the procedure.

To explain with a simple logic, the tools we call punch, which are attached to the tip of a rotating mechanism micro motor similar to the tips of 0.7-0.9 mm diameter tipped pencils, take the shaved hair of 1 mm length into the tissue, and 0.3- 0.5 glass enters and exits the tissue. This process is repeated by making 100-200 shots after the graft depth, angle and tissue structure are determined, then the grafts that are released with the collection forceps are collected meticulously, without trauma, and kept in nutrient solutions until transplanted. After the whole area is scanned homogeneously in this way, the grafts to be transplanted are separated according to their qualities such as thinness-thickness, single-wire-multi-wire, and kept in special graft solutions at a certain coldness to be transferred to the appropriate points. In the transplantation phase, priority is given to the first extracted grafts, and equal waiting time is targeted.

Graft Retrieval
Transplantation Stage

Canal Stage

The net number is calculated by counting the grafts gathered one by one using the FUE procedure. Micro channels are opened in the designated region with sapphire tips at an acceptable angle to each area in accordance with this number. Because hair density, direction, and figure are decided at this stage, the channel stage plays the most important role in achieving the most natural-looking result.

Transplantation Stage

The grafts are removed by inserting them into the channels that have been opened with forceps at a proper angle. The expertise of the planters is the most crucial consideration here. It is vital to hold the grafts from the correct position and leave them at the proper depth in the canal without bending them, as they are quite sensitive due to their construction. Otherwise, you will end up with wavy, lint-like, matte-looking hair. Planting in channels that have been opened with a unique technique at some spots necessitates a great deal of skill and experience. For example, in the crown region, there is a rose-shaped area with clockwise rotating hair; the channels in this area should be opened laterally, and its cultivation necessitates particular knowledge.

The benefits and drawbacks should be conveyed to the patient, taking into account the condition and age of the leak. Hair issues are now noticeable in children as young as five years old. For example, while hair transplantation can be planned for someone who has lost all of his hair by the age of 24 and has a very strong donor structure, it may be recommended to wait a little longer for someone who has weakened hair in the front and crown area and appears sparse, and waits until it becomes too thin or shed for transplantation.

In people with general hair weakness, it is aimed to restore the hair to its former quality with supportive treatments other than hair transplantation for thinned but still not lost hair form. All alternative treatments should be applied before hair transplantation is preferred as a last resort.

After FUE Hair Transplant

First Wash

48 hours after the hair transplant, the bandage is removed from the donor location, where the hair follicles are taken. The initial wash takes 10 days and is done with a specific lotion and shampoo. Crusts and clots are dissolved in these washings. 10. All the crusts fall off in the wash, revealing a very pleasing appearance, as if the hair had been chopped by number 2.

1-3 Months

Shock shedding is a three-month procedure that begins with the shedding of the transplanted hair and continues day by day. This 3-month shock-losing period is the most inconvenient time for persons who have had a hair transplant. For the first time, a considerable portion of the transplanted hair is shed. Hair strands can be shed along with their roots, but the capsule that produces the root will remain under the skin and resume active hair creation when it enters the growth phase.

After FUE Hair Transplant
3-7. Ay

3-7 Months

The transplanted hair follicles will start to show slowly as soon as the shock loss ends. First, the front hairline is evident, and then the planting area begins to become hairy to a noticeable extent every 10 days. During this period, we recommend our patients to take photos under the same environment and light so that they can be compared. 6-7. A very large part of the hair will have grown up to the moon, but since they are thin and voluminous, they will appear sparse. After the 7th month, all the sparseness will close quickly with the thickening process. 3. Hair follicles that start to grow at the beginning of the month 6-7. It starts to thicken in months, but the thickening of the hair follicle growing in the 7th month is 10-11. It will find the moon, so it is necessary to wait for the final result until the process is completed.

First year

The hair transplantation process will be completed at the end of the first year, and people will have their dreamed hair as promised before the treatment; all hair strands will have completed the process and will have reached donor quality. They will resist spilling for the rest of their lives because they were taken from the spill-resistant region.

FUE Hair Transplant Frequently Asked Questions

  • How is the number of roots determined in the FUE technique?

    Each person who asks for hair transplantation has a varied capacity for the donor area (the place where the hair follicles will be extracted). At the same time, the amount of graft required for the specific planting area varies. If the total number of grafts required is high, parameters such as the number of grafts per square centimeter in the donor area, the thickness of the hair strand, and the average number of hair strands per graft are calculated, and the root is cut to a depth that does not harm the donor area are calculated.

  • Will there be hair growth in place of the hair follicles taken in the FUE technique?

    The hair follicles are extracted from the donor source together with the component that creates the hair follicle so that it can remain permanent in the transplanted area for the rest of its life. If we follow the logic of waxing, the hairs that are removed from the root continue to grow. The grafts and the capsule that creates the hair follicle that were removed will not be replaced with new ones. There will be no gaps or obvious sparseness in the donor region because the remaining hair follicles are left to maintain the donor area closed.

  • Will there be any scars in the nape area after the FUE technique?

    There will be no gaps or obvious sparseness in the donor area if the planning is done correctly before the hair transplantation process. It should not, however, be kept too short at the donor area, where the largest root can be extracted. A variation in skin pigmentation can be seen in the rooted areas when examined attentively. As a result, preserving at least 2-3 numbers will depict the donor area as it was prior to the treatment.

  • Why can't the amount of root to be taken in 2 sessions be taken in one session?

    Everyone who needs two hair transplant surgeries wants results right away, but the risk of permanent scar tissue formation in the donor sites is very significant when a large number of grafts are taken in one session. A person with 40 grafts per square centimeter, for example, can receive a maximum of 12-14 grafts in the initial session. If you take more than this many grafts, the tissue scars in the area you have taken will fuse and cause big gaps. As a result, after tissue healing, the gap produced by the grafts obtained in the first session will be restored. Hair follicles from this location might be taken again in the second session.
