FUE Hair Transplant

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method which has been used since the 1930s is one of the most important and commonly used hair transplant methods. Since this method isn’t a surgical intervention, patients who are planning to have a hair transplant operation can easily choose this technique.

What Is FUE Hair Transplant ?

In hair transplant, local anaesthesia is applied and the hair roots are collected one by one by using special edged micro motors and implanted to bald areas by considering the hair growth direction and angle. The hair roots are collected faster with these micromotors and the hair transplant is completed in a short time.

To express it more clearly, the hair is implanted into the bald area one by one by shaving the donor region to 1 mm in the FUE hair transplant surgery. The hair root collection and implant regions are numbed with a local anaesthetic. The micro motor end is brought closer to take the hair root in the middle and the motor is punched to the scalp in the hair growth direction. The hair root is cut in cylindrical format with the follicle and the microscopic tissue around it. The hair root is gently pulled with micro forceps and the follicular unit is separated from the base. The follicular units are collected like this and placed into small holes in the bald area. Each follicular unit has approximately 2 or 3 follicles.

FUE Hair Transplant Procedure

(Follicular Unit Extraction) method which has been used since the 1930s is one of the most important and commonly used hair transplant methods. Since this method isn’t a surgical intervention, patients who are planning to have a hair transplant operation can easily choose this technique.

In an FUE hair transplant, each individual follicular unit (containing 1-4 hairs) is carefully extracted from the donor area using specialized tools. These units are then transplanted into balding or thinning areas to restore natural-looking hair growth.
The extraction process involves making tiny incisions around each follicular unit, allowing them to be individually removed without leaving noticeable scars. This makes FUE ideal for individuals who prefer shorter hairstyles or those concerned about visible scarring.

What Are The Advantages of the FUE Method?​

This automatic system that minimises the risk to damage the grafts during the operation shortens the operation duration and increases the number of collected grafts. When the procedure is operated in an experienced, correct and sufficient clinic that uses adequate technology and technique, the individuals can have new hair for life.

Why Should I Choose FUE Hair Transplant?

With this technique and technology, the hair transplant is operated easier and the required hair roots can be collected from more regions. The most important property is that the operation can be completed without a scar. Sutures and bistoury aren’t used. The pain is low and the treatment process is faster. With this fast recovery, individuals can adapt to their social lives fast.

If the procedure is operated by a professional and experienced team, the results will be permanent. Patients don’t experience pain, tissue or sensation loss after the operation. Since the hair roots are genetically durable against hair loss, patients will have permanent hair.

The hair transplant cost will decrease with the speed of the technologies and this will provide a financial relief for the patient.

Understanding the Procedure

Before undergoing an FUE hair transplant at Hermest Hair Center or any reputable clinic, it’s essential to understand what will happen during the procedure itself.

Pre-operative Preparations

Firstly, you will have an initial consultation with the hair transplant surgeon. During this consultation, the surgeon will evaluate your scalp and hair condition, discuss your expectations, and create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.

Leading up to the procedure, you may be advised to follow certain instructions to ensure optimal results. This may include avoiding blood-thinning medications or supplements that could interfere with the surgery. Your hair clinic will provide specific guidelines for you to follow.

Anesthesia Options

On the day of the procedure, you can expect a comfortable and welcoming environment at Hermest Hair Center. Depending on your preference and the extent of the procedure, anesthesia options are available.

Most FUE procedures can be performed under local anesthesia, which means only the donor area (usually at the back or sides of the head) will be numbed. This allows you to remain awake during the surgery while experiencing minimal discomfort.

For those who may feel more anxious or prefer not to be fully conscious during the procedure, sedation options can also be discussed with your surgeon.

What Are the Things to Consider in Hair Transplant?

One of the most important things to consider in hair transplant is to plan an entirely customized treatment process. Because the donor region and bald region are different for everyone. Therefore, “a standard hair transplant for everyone” is an incorrect approach. A custom treatment or hair transplant method should be selected for hair structure and expectations. Surgeons can reach up to 99% success rate by choosing an entirely custom treatment process for the patients during the pre-op consultation process.

  • The hairline must match the face line of an individual: Since everyone has a different face and head structure, the natural hairline is different. Correct identification and planning of the hairline will give a natural look after the hair transplant.
  • The implanted hair should have the right density and position: Incorrect planning in hair transplant will prevent a natural look. Similarly, trying to complete a large area in one session will cause a thinner hair look.
  • Incorrect hair implant angle: Incorrect hair implant angle will both decrease the permanency by decreasing the hair strength and cause an unnatural look due to improper combing direction.
  • Collecting too much hair grafts: Collecting too much grafts or hair roots from the donor region might lead to complications in this region. This could lead to irreversible problems.

Who Cannot Have Hair Transplant?

⦁ Individuals with Hepatitis C
⦁ Individuals with HIV – AIDS
⦁ Individuals with psdeudopelade and lichen planus disease
⦁ Individuals with scarce hair on the donor region
⦁ Individuals with serious chronic diseases
⦁ Individuals with heart disease, diabetes, liver failure, high blood pressure and kidney failure
⦁ Individuals under 18 years old (we recommend the treatment for individuals over 22 years old)

Since the individuals mentioned above cause a health risk or cannot achieve successful hair transplant results, it isn’t right to apply hair transplant operation!

Opening Channels

The roots that will be transferred to their hair transplant region should have the same direction and depth as the existing hair roots. The hair transplant channels should be adjusted with a special angle. The number of channels must be the same as the transplanted roots. Multiple techniques can be used for opening channels. The technique is selected as a common decision of the patient and surgeon.

Hair Transplant

The hair implant is the last stage of hair transplant. At this stage, the collected roots can integrate to channels. The most important point at this stage is to correctly place the hair roots to channels. The planning of the surgeon is followed and the collected hair is transplanted to determined regions in suitable amount. After this last stage of the hair transplant operation is completed, the surgeon’s instructions must be followed.

FUE HAIRTRANSPLANT

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

You may have some burning questions about FUE hair transplant. To provide you with the information you need, here are answers to frequently asked questions:
The duration of an FUE hair transplant procedure can vary depending on several factors, such as the number of grafts needed and individual patient characteristics. On average, an FUE hair transplant can take anywhere from a few hours to a full day.At Hermest Hair Center, we prioritize efficiency without compromising quality. Our experienced team utilizes advanced techniques and equipment to maximize surgical precision while minimizing procedure time.

During an FUE hair transplant, local anesthesia is commonly used. This means that only the donor area is numbed while you remain awake throughout the procedure.

Local anesthesia allows for a comfortable experience during the surgery while ensuring minimal discomfort. However, if you prefer to be less aware during the procedure, sedation options can be discussed with your surgeon at Hermest Hair Center.

Proper post-operative care is crucial for optimal healing and results after an FUE hair transplant. Your hair clinic will provide specific instructions for caring for your transplanted hair, including guidelines on washing.

Generally, gentle techniques should be employed when washing your transplanted hair. This involves using a mild shampoo and avoiding excessive rubbing or scratching of the scalp. Your surgeon will guide you through these instructions and answer any questions you may have during follow-up appointments at Hermest Hair Center.

Hair growth following an FUE hair transplant occurs in stages, with initial shedding followed by gradual regrowth over time.

Within a few weeks after the surgery, you may experience shedding of the transplanted hairs. This is a normal part of the process and allows for healthier regrowth.

Within 3-6 months following the procedure, you should begin to notice improved hair growth as new hairs sprout from the transplanted follicular units. Significant results are typically visible within 6-12 months after the surgery, although hair growth may continue to improve for up to 18 months or longer.

It’s important to note that each individual’s experience with hair growth timing may vary based on personal characteristics and adherence to post-operative care instructions.

The results of an FUE hair transplant at Hermest Hair Center are designed to be long-lasting and permanent. The transplanted hairs are typically derived from genetically resistant areas, making them less likely to fall out over time.

However, it’s important to understand that existing non-transplanted hairs that were previously susceptible to hair loss due to genetic factors can still be subject to further thinning or loss in the future. To address this possibility and maintain optimal results, your surgeon at Hermest Hair Center may recommend additional medical therapies or treatments tailored specifically for your needs.

At Hermest Hair Center, we aim for patient satisfaction by providing comprehensive care and support throughout your journey. Regular follow-up appointments with our experienced team allow us to assess your progress, address any concerns, and provide guidance on maintaining your newly transplanted hair.

Choosing an FUE hair transplant at a reputable center like Hermest Hair Center can be a life-changing decision. Our commitment to personalized treatment plans, advanced techniques, and exceptional patient care ensures that your experience is both comfortable and transformative.

From the initial consultation to the recovery period and beyond, Hermest Hair Center walks alongside you every step of the way. Our team of skilled surgeons and dedicated professionals will provide guidance, support, and expertise to help you regain your hair with confidence.

Remember that results from an FUE hair transplant take time to manifest fully. Patience is key as you go through stages of shedding and regrowth. Following post-operative instructions diligently while maintaining regular follow-up appointments with Hermest Hair Center will set you on the path towards achieving natural-looking results.

Don’t let hair loss diminish your self-esteem or hinder your quality of life. Take control of your hair restoration journey with an FUE hair transplant at Hermest Hair Center . Regain your hair with confidence and embrace a future filled with renewed self-assurance.

It’s time to make a positive change in your life. Contact us at Hermest Hair Center today for a consultation and embark on a transformative journey that will give you back more than just strands of hair.

Ich war zur meiner ersten Haartransplantation in Istanbul. Aufgrund von vielen positiven Feedback in Foren und Bewertungen hatte ich einen Termin bei Hermest gemacht. Transfer, Hotel und die Betreuung vor Ort waren sehr gut. Der Ablauf der OP war sehr professionell und es wurde sich viel Zeit genommen, meine Haarlinie zu zeichnen. Jeder Schritt wurde mir gut erklärt. Ein herzliches Dank an Frau Burcu, welche, während der Operation zur Seite stand. Sie hat mir alle Fragen geduldig erklärt und mir viele Tipps zur Pflege danach gegeben. Die lokale Betäubung war bei mir etwas problematisch, da ich scheinbar sehr schmerzempfindlich am Kopf bin. Die Krankenschwester hat sich viel Zeit gelassen und ständig war jemand um mich herum und hat geschaut, ob alles okay ist. Die Haar-Entnahme und Verpflanzung war absolut schmerzlos. Jetzt hoffe ich, dass das Ergebnis auch so gut wird.
