Before and After Results of FUE Hair Transplant

You will begin to see your newly transplanted hair within about one month on average. When reviewing FUE hair transplant before and after photos in Turkey, keep in mind that there is typically at least a one-year gap between the two photos. In the first few months, your hair will be very short and may be difficult to notice. However, as it grows longer, you will gradually regain thicker and healthier-looking hair.

FUE Hair Transplant Technology

 

Follicular Unit Extraction Hair Transplant, also known as FOX procedure. It stands out as one of the most modern hair transplant techniques. Since the follicular unit is narrowest on the surface, it is necessary to use small micro punches of 0.6-0.8 mm in size and is therefore a minimally invasive technique [1].

 

The difference of this method is the process of preparing the recipient area. Unlike other hair transplantation methods, surgeons open channels in the scalp with medical blades with micro-tips. In these channels, they transplant the hair collected from the donor area in the following process.

 

Today, when applying the FUE method, hair transplant specialists commonly use two types of medical blades, and the name of the technique also changes according to them. These blades are sapphire and metal slit blades.

 

Methods Used under FUE Hair Transplant

There are three techniques under the title of FUE hair transplantation in Turkey. Here are them:

 

  • U-FUE (Unshaven) Hair Transplant in Turkey

U-FUE or unshaven FUE hair transplant in Turkey is specially designed for patients who do not want to shave all of their hair. Because of the better appearance of the scalp after the operation, it’s favored by more and more patients every day.

 

  • Ice (Frozen) FUE Hair Transplant in Turkey

It is the process of using cold equipment to collect hair follicles from the donor area. It is a variation of the standard FUE technique in which individual hair follicles are extracted from the donor site.

 

  • NeoGraft Hair Transplant in Turkey

It is a semi-automated FUE hair transplant in Turkey. It is a scarless hair treatment as it provides the least invasive approach. This new technique is not only suitable for hairline restoration and hair transplantation for the vertex but also suitable for eyebrow and beard transplantation [2].

Learn your eligibility for FUE hair transplant

FUE hair transplantation, due to the absence of a specific age limit, is more inclusive than other techniques. If you;

 

  • suffer from Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness),
  • are a healthy individual, typically over the age of 25,

 

you may be a suitable candidate for FUE hair transplant in Turkey. However, you may not be a good candidate if you have serious health issues, allergies or reactions to anesthesia, or if you have AIDS. Additionally, individuals who suffer from complete baldness or have had no hair since birth may not be suitable candidates.

 

FUE Hair Transplant for Men

On average, 4000 grafts of hair are transplanted with FUE hair transplant in Turkey. This is sufficient for most men suffering from male pattern baldness. For example, Turkish surgeons can safely use FUE hair transplantation to treat a patient at stage 5 on the Norwood Hair Loss Scale.

FUE Hair Transplant for Women

FUE hair transplant in Turkey gives successful results in patients with Androgenetic Alopecia. Although this condition is most common in men (50% in society), 20% to 25% of women also suffer from it. Women prefer the FUE technique because it is a more controlled operation in the hair harvesting and transplanting steps, less damaging to the hair follicles and minimally invasive.

Steps of FUE hair transplant surgery in Turkey

The FUE method in hair transplantation generally includes the following stages:

 

  1. The medical team analyzes your hair.
  2. If there is no problem for transplantation, they will then shave your hair, if you didn’t choose U-FUE.
  3. After shaving, they determine the hair transplantation boundaries and the front hairline.
  4. They apply local anesthesia to the areas where the procedure will be performed.
  5. They collect hair strands as grafts from the back area of the shaved hair.
  6. Afterwards, these graft hair strands are kept in a solution.
  7. While the graft hair strands are kept waiting, the specialist opens channels in the area where the hair transplantation will be performed with the help of a metal knife or sapphire knife with micro-tips.
  8. After opening the channels, he transplants the collected hair follicles into this area. Thus, the surgeon completes the operation process [3].
