About FUE
About FUE

Follicle Unit Extraction (FUE) is a hair transplantation process which harvests hair from anywhere on the body and then places it onto another site on the body. FUE hair transplanting is basically like a kind of organ transplant, where the tissue of the person is trans-planted back into their own body (auto-transplantation). A transplantation of a hair root from another person is technically possible, but due to serious side effects from medication used in post-planting from other donors, only the auto-transplantation system is used.

As a person who intends to receive a hair planting, you probably have visited many confusing and vague websites. Allow us to try and explain FUE hair transplantation from a slightly different point of view, and hopefully shed some light on the process. In recent years, since plantings such as eyebrow, eyelash, beard, mustache and arm hair (done with the purpose of disguising earlier razor traces from previous hair transplant procedures) have been made, the term “hair transplantation” tends to fall short of adequately describing the FUE technique. A more correct term would be “HAIR ROOT TRANSPLANTATION.

There are two methods through which hair transplants are conducted in Turkey, one of which is the FUE method. The term “hair root transplantation” differentiates FUE from the other method, which works by moving larger strips (or “grafts”) of hair from one part of the body to another. With the FUE method, each hair root is taken out individually and transplanted to hairless parts of the body. Hair is moved follicle by follicle, making FUE a superior process than the earlier grafting methods. With FUE there is no incising, no sutures, and no scars! FUE, unlike the grafting method, is not a traumatic surgical operation, and because of this there is no need to wait for long periods of time between transplanting sessions. This reduction in wait time allows the whole process to be completed in a matter of days, rather than having to undergo multiple sessions over weeks or months.

Before the follicle removal process, hair on the donor area is cut up to 1 mm. The areas of hair removal and hair transplantation are then anesthetized using local anesthetic. Then a Micro Motor tip is used to approach the center of the hair root. The tip is then stuck in and pulls out the root from the skin at the natural angle of the growing hair. This ensures that the hair is cutout in a cylindrical style, with the follicle and the microscopic tissue surrounding it kept in place. The removal is done gently and the follicular unit comes out completely separating from the base. Due to this automatic system that minimizes the graft wastage in operation, operation terms have been shortened and the number of grafts taken over time has drastically increased. After the follicular units are collected in this way, they are then placed into small holes which have been opened up on the hairless area

Superiorities of this method with regard to other methods are as follows:.

  • On the area where the grafts are taken out, only the involved root cell is removed directly without taking out any other tissue.
  • No incision or suture process is applied to the area where the hair is removed. In the area from where the roots have been removed, small scratches (less than 1.00 mm in diameter) occur and these scratches completely heal within a few days without leaving any scars.
  • By using this technique, follicles taken from the nape of the neck can be used in hair transfer. Also transfer can be done to eyebrows, mustache and beard
  • Depending upon the term of recovery, there is no need to wait for a long time between sessions. Sessions may be repeated once every other day.
  • Up to 10,000 transplants on average can be taken per session. There are 1-5 strands within each transplant. 1 transplant will produce 2.5-3 strands of hair on average.
  • It is possible to implant 55-60 (or more) roots per square centimeter.
  • Furthermore the fact that no pain or loss of sense occurs to the tissue during and after the operation, makes this method to be the most preferable option for patients

With the FUE method, the hair initially transplanted is lost at the end of the first month, and they then begin to grow fully about 2-3 months after the transplantation. The hair that grows out at this time, makes a strong impression by the 6th month; but takes its best shape within a year, after completing its adaptation term. Since the hair transplanted is taken from areas genetically coded not to be lost, they will never become suspect to balding again. Also, since the hair belongs to the person themselves, they grow out with the same color and character of the hair in the transplanted area.

Advantages Of Fue Technique
Advantages Of Fue Technique

Superiorities of this method with regard to other methods are as follows:
No suture required.
Scalpel is not used.
Definitely no scar is left and nothing indicating the hair transplant is visible.
It can be applied to both women and men.
It is an esthetic operation without ache or pain.
A very short time of recovery is needed. Normal activities can begin quickly after the operation.
The results are very natural in appearance.
Restructuring of eyebrows and beards is easy and effective.
Hair can be harvested from almost anywhere on the body.
Since esthetic surgery is external, more than one application can be applied within a short term.
Since there is no restriction on donor area, the patient’s desirable thickness is thoroughly achievable at receiver areas.
How is an eyebrow transplantation applied ?
How is an eyebrow transplantation applied ?

The methods and techniques employed during hair transplantation are essentially the same in eyebrow transplantation. The process begins by removing a micro-graft (single hair strand) from the nape of the patient’s neck, and then the micro-graft is transplanted to the patient’s eyebrow area. The eyebrow area where the micro-graft is to be placed is anesthetized locally. Micro-canals are then opened with a lateral slit on the area where the hair transplantation is to be applied. Once the canals are opened, our expert team applies the transplantation process individually to each canal.
At Estepera Hair Transplantation Center, we have performed hundreds of successful eyebrow transfers; especially for women who, as the result of removing and thinning down the eyebrows, have incurred permanently deformed eyebrow lines. At our center we design your eyebrows perfectly and give them your desired shape within a very short time (within 1-2 hours), without causing any trauma or pain.
Eyebrow problems that can be corrected almost completely by Eyebrow transplantation:
Thinning Eyebrows.
Deformed Eyebrows.
Wound Scar.
Operation Scar.
Suture Scar.
Various types of eyebrow loss can be camouflaged fully by applying a successful root transfer. Also, any scars can be made invisible through Eyebrow transplantation.
Does the technique used in eyebrow transplantation vary from person to person?
Generally, the same technique is used but the extent of eyebrow loss and the reasons behind the loss bear significance on how the technique is applied.
May eyebrow transplantation be applied to anybody?
Yes, It may be applied to anyone who has hair at the nape of their neck.
Is pain felt during application?
Definitely not. Before the procedure anesthesia is applied locally to areas where the procedure is to take place, removing any sense of pain. Other methods, such as tattoos made on the eyebrows, cause considerably more pain.
Is a natural appearance maintained in eyebrow transplantation?
Every individual’s eyebrows is different from the next; therefore the thickness and thinness of the eyebrow transplantation should be determined by the former eyebrow and hair properties of the individual. This ensures that a natural appearance will result from the procedure. A person who used to have abundant hair and eyebrows, should not seek to have a weak or very thin eyebrow…while thick and bushy eyebrows are not suitable for a person who has naturally thin eyebrows.
When deciding upon the model of the eyebrow, what should be taken into consideration?
The kind of eyebrow a person wants is very important; therefore they should decide, through an informed consultation with their doctor, on the specific eyebrow line, design and thickness. Generally, in order to maintain a natural appearance, a thick eyebrow can be designed as thick as you wish but a thin eyebrow cannot be turned into a full and thick eyebrow. However, it is possible to make your eyebrow slightly thicker than normal, and still maintain a natural look to your eyebrows.
Do any problems arise after the eyebrow has been transplanted? What grooming habits should be taken into consideration?
You should shorten eyebrows transplanted from the nape of the neck no more than once a week. Why? Because, the transplanted eyebrow hair grows at a different rate, because it bears the properties of hair from the nape of the neck rather than that of natural eyebrow hair.

Hair mesotherapy is a non-surgical medical treatment, essentially the treatment works by injecting vitamins desperately needed for the growth of hair (mineral, protein etc…) directly into the balding scalp via very fine needles.

Hair mesotherapy is a non-surgical medical treatment, essentially the treatment works by injecting vitamins desperately needed for the growth of hair (mineral, protein etc…) directly into the balding scalp via very fine needles. After these small doses are injected into the skin, the injection stimulates the skin’s cellular metabolism and encourages the cells to revive previously dormant tissue.
Hair mesotherapy works best as a supplementary method for healing damaged or dying follicles, and taking control over hair loss. Results have been satisfactory for patients undergoing the process and are permanent. One or two sessions a are normally applied, according to the patient’s need of hair. The patient’s own hair gains a healthier appearance, and further loss of hair tends to cease after 6 to 10 sessions. Growth of hair, which was unable to emerge from under the skin before, has even been known to occur; especially in women. Our clinic provides this method for both men and women.

You wonder and answers to questions attached to your head you can find frequently asked questions area.

  • Can I have the same result at two different centers if I have transplanted the same number of grafts?
  • What is the point to take into consideration before the surgery
  • What is the ratio of the transplanted hair extension?
  • Can we fix hair not dense enough or thick and grow wrong side because of hair transplantation done before ?
  • What do a good hair transplant surgery commit?
  • How many sessions do I have hair transplant surgery?
  • Is the hair transplant surgery painful?
  • What are the complications and adverse effects of hair transplant surgery?
  • What is the dense of hair planned as a result of hair transplant surgery?
  • Are there any difference or hair loos on my normal hair after hair transplant surgery?
  • When and how my hair grows?

No. All of the patients are curious about the number of transpanted grafts or strands and will assume that the same result can be obtained if the same number is transplanted. But the experience of the surgeons, direction of transplantation, transplanting without damaging the graft, duration of the graft outside, the solution property that grafts stay outside and number of grafts /transplantation area ratio (density) is decisive in this issue. You will need to confirm the success and experience of the surgeon team who will make the operation.

You should not use aspirin, Ginkgo bıloba, ginseng, vitamin E or any other herbal products one week before the surgery that may increase bleeding.
Patients who have cardiac diseases, atherosclerosis, myocard infarctus, bypass surgery or stend operation history must give theır medıcal information to the doctor. For this reason if the patient uses any drugs that coencive to control bleeding, the drugs should not be used for a period under the doctor's consultation.
Diabetic patients can make hair transplant but blood glucose levels must be controlled. Thyroid disorders are common, especially low thyroid hormone levels affect the success of the transplantation. If you have thyroid disorders your hormone levels must be within normal limits. Three nights before surgery, you should not drınk alcohol. On the day of the surgery you should wash your hair in the morning, and you should go to the clinic with a good breakfast.

There is no expert or method/technique that can give an answer to this question. Because after the hair grows it is hard to say ıf ıt is the transplanted or the existing haır. It is impossible to count the hair growth one by one. According to my personal experience on the frontal area extension of graft ratio is approximately 90-95%, on the vertex area this rate decreases to 70-75%. But emphasizing that these rates are made by very special experts and team. These success rates cannot be reached for all hair transplantations.

Patients whose hair is not dense enough because of past hair transplant surgery can undergo a correction surgery if they have no diseases and the donor area is enough. We do correction operations at our clinic.
In this situation some hormone levels, vitamin and mineral levels will be checked. Eczema, skin reactions and secondary infection scars have to be checked and then we can make a decision.
We apply to methods on thick and wrong side growth hair transplant correction. Firstly if grafts are so big and wide we displant these grafts cut into single grafts then transplant again with natural phrase. On the second technique; we camouflage the bad view by transplanting dense and single grafts around and between to these thick grafts. In other words we hide these hair islet by dense transplantation and make vague.

Three things will commit by a talent surgeon. A transplantation that ensure natural view and can not easily be realized on the first view (single roots on the front side, two three roots mix grafts that volumize on the posterior, adhere to natural hair growth side and natural frontal line). Patient will not have post-operation scar. Should make the surgery at the maximum hair dense (50-60% of normal hair dense) and natural view.

Hair transplant surgey can make at repetitive sessions. This is based on the width of the hair loss area. If the transplantation area is completely bald 2 sessions will be good and dense transplantation will be made(50% ratio of normal hair dense). Every targeted sessions raise the dense ratio up to 25%-35%. So 50%-60% dense of hair will be perfect by two sessions of hair transplantation. The period between two sessions must be at least 40 days up to 6 months according to the method.

Most of the time, patient feel pain only during the injection of local anesthesia. When the anesthesia injection finished pain does not occur. But if the surgery takes long the effect of anesthesia will be diminishable fort his reason another injection should be done again. If neccessary 8-12 hour anesthesia can be obtained by doing nerve block. With the help of giving strong analgesic by the end of the operation patient prevents from post-op pain.
In some cases, if patient has injection fear and agitation oral sedatives for sedation or intravenous sedation can be done. I want to notice that at our clinic intravenous sedation done by anesthesia doctor for hair transplant surgery is very low and we do not prefer. We do not accept the general anesthesia requests.

The complication and adverse effect of hair transplant surgery is very low and insignificant.
Some minor complications can be at hair transplant surgery like every surgery procedure.
Redness on the transplanted area will take up to 2-8 weeks.
After hair transplantation thinning of the existing hair can be seen for a couple of months.
Post-op pain and scar on the transplanted area will be desteroyed at 7-10 days.
Dull ache occurs after fue operations for one night, 2-3 nights after fut operation.
Topognosis and torpor passes after fue operations immediately, rarely torpor takes long time.
For itch precaution is taken by medication and washing. Ache can be on the donor area post-op 5 to 6 days, this ache can pass by anti imflammatory and analgesic.
Tubercle on the scalp can ocur on the 3rd day and can pass 3-5 days.
Cyst formation: in a couple of weeks spontaneous remission occurs and it seems like very small pustule on the transplantation area.
We have hardly ever seen infection but it can occur every surgery theoretically.
Post-op scar occurance take a long time, if scar is not cleared mycosis can ocur.

Human eye can’ t recognize the dense between 50%-100%. If we asssume the donor area’ s hair dense 100%, the dense ratio will be at least 50% of natural hair. At first session 25%-35% dense ratio will be transplanted according to the patient’s hair thickness, donor area’s situation, hair colour, patient’s age and sex and even hair/skin colour type. Then a second sessions can be recquired to raise this rate up to 50%-60%.

Yes. Your normal hair around the transplanted grafts can get thinner or temporal hair loss can ocur. This stiuation can be seen as existing hair loss on tranplantation area.
This situation finishes about two months and spontaneously get beter.
Temporal hair loss and getting thin of the existing hair is called ‘Telogen Effluvia’. This situation should not discomfort patient until the new hair grows because it is temporal.

After the hair transplant surgery transplanted hair is getting lost on the first month. Hair follicle’ s settling, completing growing phase and growing takes 3 months. Growing the first hair takes 3-6 months. The we are expected hair to be 1 cm. First hair is curly or wavey, thin and colorless. Over time hair becomes straight, thicker and colour forms by the help of sun.
