What is FUE?

Follicular Unit Extraction as known as FUE is one of the primary methods for treating baldness. In this method hair transplant surgeons extract follicular units from donor area (the back side of scalp).

When you decide to have a hair transplant, it’s too important for making detailed consultation. Pre operative consultations very important for understanding patients expectations.

Planning a customized program for your hair loss that meets your desires and budgets and fits your sex, age and type of baldness. We will advise you the best medical and / or surgical treatment with the quantification of the area to cover, the density and the volume of the implants.

-Could we cure Baldness in women and men?

With right hands and with right techniques yes. In so far the best method is hair transplant. But which is the best method for hair transplant? All method’s (DHI, FUE, FUT, Micro-FUE) has its advantages and disadvantages.

When all methods are examined in terms of patient comfort, efficiency, price, duration, reliability in so far Micro-Fue is gold standart for many medical societies all over the World.

-How many sessions do the patients need to have hairs?

A session that could be one and only in Micro-FUE!! We are able to implant 4000 to 5000 FU or more if available, with a possibility to realize real megasessions in a one-day at maximum density, without dividing the transplant into multiple sessions (with relative expenses) at a cost affordable to everyone.

-How long does it takes turn normal life for patients after surgery?

Micro-Fue Hair transplantation is minimal invasive procedure that allows you to go to your home by foot after surgery. First 3 days you need to be careful for hitting your head. After 3 days you can wash your head gently. International patients could turn their homes after the day of surgery. Its possible to fly and travel after the surgery without any problem.

Hair distribution:

Hair distribution is unique to each individual, by color, consistency, density, sex, age, extent and type of baldness. We select and position of the different FU to rebuild your dense and natural hair with the insertion up to 4000-5000 FU at an affordable price. FU means follicular units. The follicular units can be one, two, three of four hairs clustered in each unit. You can think follicular unit like a piece of tissue carrying hair follicles.  This is the way how hair grows naturally.

Using 100% of the donor area

The third-generation 0,7mm. punch MICRO-FUE technique with led lighting avoids damage to the follicular units. Unlike the STRIP-FUT technique, the FU are not manipulated under the hot and intense light of the microscope and their survival is guaranteed, in addition there’s not the feared long 25-30 cm long scar, often dilated and painful with paresthesia in the surrounding areas. To achieve a natural look from your transplant depends on many factors such as anterior hairline desing, good density, direction of implantation, use of appropriate follicular units in each location, etc. With the old punches, each punch could able to remove 10 to 20 hairs together giving the “dolls hair” aspect that is definitely in the past.

The Frequently Asked Questions About Hair Transplantation:

(Respondents: Dr. Ahmet AYIK, MSc, PHd f Onur Gürcan Ergen)

 

Can I get hair that looks really natural as a result of hair transplantation?

Yes, it is possible to reach completely natural looking hair with the experience of the surgeon who performs the operation, the suitability of the person for the operation and the right planning. It is not understood by anyone who you have been treated in a hair transplant that is correctly distributed in the donor and transplantation area.

Is hair transplantation a painful procedure?

Pain is not felt during hair transplantation unless there are extreme conditions with the anesthetic drugs and application methods developed today. Temporary and short-term pain may occur during the injection of anesthetic drugs. But most of them are only seconds of pain that can be felt instantly. After the drug is injected, the region becomes numb within 5-10 minutes and no pain is felt during the operation. In addition, patients need to be prepared for psychological pain. The applications to be done before the procedure should be explained in detail and the stress control of the patients with excessive stress should be reduced by the help of oral or medication.

How soon can I return to my normal life after hair transplantation?

Although the recovery rate of the people is different, the first washing is done on the 2nd or 3rd day after the procedure. Redness and crusting may occur in the areas where the hair follicles are sown after the first wash. You may need to camouflage this image as it will attract people’s attention. There is no problem returning to your normal life after the operation, provided that you do not have aesthetic expectations and excessive physical activity.

Will there be a loss of my own hair after hair transplantation?

Yes, temporary hair loss may occur in the planting and donor areas. Healthy hair follicles may suffer minor damage during purchase and transplantation. This is completely temporary and causes patients to panic. But in general, this situation returns to normal within 3 months and returns to the normal growth process in your hair in your treated areas with your transplanted hair.

When will my hair grow after hair transplantation?

Although there is a general term such as 3-6 months on this subject, it is said that in plastic surgery associations and publications, 12-15 months should be waited for the process to be completed. The transplanted hair can grow in a structure similar to that of a thin, curly, body hair at first. But this image disappears completely when the process is completed.

Should hair transplantation be considered in every hair loss?

No, there are many types of hair loss at an early age, after childbirth, after infection and severe surgeries, due to some drug use and some endocrine causes. First of all, the type of hair loss should be determined by dermatology or tricology specialists by one or more tests. While hair loss can be prevented by medical treatments, complex and long procedures may be required. It will be more accurate for your physician to draw your road map before deciding on this matter.

Will all of the transplanted hair come out?

If there are no treatments like infection, trauma, endocrine disorder or chemotherapy after transplantation, the transplanted hair generally grows in the front region at the rate of 85-90% in the vertex region (60-70%).

What should be the expectation from hair transplantation?

A hair transplant done with the right methods in expert hands promises a 50-60% tightening in a completely bald area, depending on gender, skin color, hair thickness, and density of the donor area. It is very important to provide real information about the outcome and to understand patient expectations. It is important to know that with hair transplantation, it is impossible to reach a 100% frequent hair that has never been transplanted. However, we do not have an eye to distinguish between 60% frequency and 100% frequency. In FUE hair transplantation, it is aimed to get maximum efficiency by adjusting the direction and distribution of hair well. It is also one of the targeted topics that will not be noticed on the nape after the operation or that there is no scar.

Can poorly done hair transplants be treated?

It is great to correct hair transplants that grow in the form of a toothbrush and look bad in the right hands and with the right methods. Here, the patient should show the necessary consent, knowing that the physician may be a partner to the result he had received due to the previous unsuccessful procedure. Otherwise, physicians working ethically do not want to take such a risk.

What are the basic standards “MUST” to be provided to every patient in hair transplantation?

  • “MEDICAL DOCTOR” does the operation
  • “Help” by medical officers or nurses
  • Operating in environments where “operating room” conditions are provided (Hospital, Sterilization, Pain control, Vascular access)
  • Compulsory medical standards and medical team
  • There is no such expertise as “hair transplantation expertise”. All surgical procedures can only be performed by “MEDICAL DOCTORS“.
  • The postoperative follow-up should not be done by agents, consultants etc., but by the team performing the surgery.

You can ask for medical diplome and center certifications before deciding your clinic!

If you go to Center's that doesn't have this standards what situations can you encounter?

  • People introducing themselves as a doctor
  • Although there is no such expertise as hair transplant expertise, people introduce themselves as hair transplant specialist.
  • The number of grafts not planted in a healthy way
  • The operating room and the place to be treated do not meet the required standards
  • Infection and complication risks
  • Failure to find a person to communicate after bad results and indifference
  • Incorrectly prescribed medications and products
  • Waste of money and time
