Hair Transplantation IN TURKEY
Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE is a surgical hair transplant procedure to restore the lost hair. Before going to the procedure steps, it is important to have a bit of knowledge about the hair structure.

Hair transplantation is a very safe, relatively minor surgical procedure. The transplanted hair seen above the scalp will initially be shed, and the roots will remain dormant for 6-12 weeks. After this period, the new hairs will all begin to grow.
A typical hair consists of hair shafts, follicles, vellus hair, sebaceous gland, nerve and blood vessels. The hair shafts can be seen above the skin and the follicular units stay on the surface. A hair follicular unit consists of 1-4 hairs. The main objective of the hair transplant procedure is to relocate the intra-follicular units from the donor site (usually, the back side of the head) to the recipient (bald) areas.
Depending on the degree of balding for the frontal area and similarly for the crown area, 1-3 procedures involving several hundred or perhaps 1,500 or more grafts may be required to achieve the desired density (of course, more procedures could be done if hair loss progresses or greater density is desired). Within 24 hours small crusts will form on each graft which are shed in approximately 7-10 days. The grafted hairs will often start to grow by 6-12 weeks after the procedure and will continue to grow for a lifetime
In the FUE hair transplant procedure, the follicular units are extracted individually from the scalp using a small, sharp cylindrical punch. The extracted follicular units are then transplanted into the recipient area individually. The procedure uses an automated extraction tool to remove the grafts and then place them in the recipient area. FUE does not require stitches or sutures.
A micro-punching tool and needle device is used to extract the individual follicular units. After that, the graft is extracted directly from the scalp and prepare them for implantation. To have an optimal visualization, the doctor may shaves the donor area.

Anyone who has experienced permanent hair loss may be a candidate for hair restoration surgery, including:
- Men with male pattern baldness
- Some women with thinning hair – female pattern thining
- People with areas of scarring from injuries or hair loss after face lift procedures
- People who want to thicken or restore eyebrows, eyelashes, and beards
Minor infections can occur around a newly transplanted hair follicle, similar to an infected ingrown hair or pimple. Minor scars. Patients may experience mild swelling to the forehead area for a few days following surgery and on rare occasions may experience a black eye if the frontal scalp is transplanted.
Patients may be asked to use moist compresses or spray and to sleep in a semi-upright position for 2-3 days following the procedure to minimize swelling and bruising. Small crusts may form on each graft that can be camouflaged by any existing hair that can be combed over the recipient area. These crusts will flake off by 10-14 days after the surgery. Numbness that may occur in the donor or recipient area usually disappears in 2-8 months after surgery.
