WHAT IS FUE AND IT’S STEPS IN TURKEY ?
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is the more easy/safe and popular hair transplant technique in the world and most of the clinic in TURKEY use this method.
By using micromotors the physician can avoid using a surgical knife in the donor area (In Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) operations surgeons uses knife and it couses scars) , so no suture is required in this region and no visible scar is left on the points where the roots are taken.
STEPS in FUE
1- Draw the natural hair frontline
While the front hair line is being drawn, person’s head structure, the size of balding areas, the amount of grafts taken, the person’s age and expectations should certainly be taken into consideration.
Pain during a FUE transplant should be limited to the injection of local anesthesia. Our surgeons apply local anesthesia to patients, so most people don’t even remember the injections.
3 – The extraction and collection of hair follicles (graft)
Hair units (Grafts) are taken one by one with their root from the donor area with a special tool called a micromotor.
FUE hair transplantation is performed by the micromotor –a specially designed microsurgical device- without making any incisions or sutures. Hair follicles are individually removed from the scalp by using the micropunches with diameters of 0.6-0.9 mm inserted to the tip of the micromotor.
By using micromotors the physician can avoid using a surgical knife in the donor area, so no suture is required in this region and no visible scar is left on the points where the roots are taken.
4 – Making the canals for inserting the hair follicles (Graft) during the hair transplantation
The method of preparing the canals and the equipment used for this purpose are highly significant. Hair transplantation canals are made by using specially designed blades (micro slit) with diameters of 0.5 – 0.8 mm. The width and length of the hair canals are planned by evaluating the extracted follicles individually.
Definitely no visible scar is left and a natural result is obtained as long as the canals are prepared cautiously. Similarly, if the canals are prepared in conformity with the orientation of hair, the recently growing hair can be combed in the desired direction and it looks natural like the original hair.
5- Implantation of hair follicles
This comprises the implantation of the hair follicles individually extracted by the FUE method into the hair canals prepared. In this phase the hair follicles are inserted at the appropriate depth with the appropriate angle without giving any harm to them. This procedure requires patience and caution. The hair follicles should individually be inserted into every single canal without skipping any of them.
