Hair Transplantation with FUE Technique

In the Fue method; The hair follicles are taken one by one from the area chosen as the donor area, that is, separated from the skin and implanted in the desired area. Hair follicles taken from the donor area are transplanted to the desired area not as a whole, but one by one in the same way. For this reason, the implantation of hair follicles causes this method to be performed with longer sessions compared to other methods. Today, this method is done with a micromotor rather than punches.


What is Fue hair transplant? It will be useful to give information about the content of the method when asked. Fue hair transplant method is a widely used hair transplant method in the world. During this method, no incision is made on the scalp, and no piercing is performed on the skin.

Fue is an abbreviation for Follicular Unit Extraction. This method was first used in Japan in 1988 with 1 mm punches. The method took place in the medical literature in 2002.


Micro FUE Hair Transplantation Technique

It is an improved version of the manual FUE technique. In micro hair transplantation technique, it is the process of removing hair follicles by means of equipment with micro tips. Micro motors are used in this technique with tiny tips. The tips are based on the principle of drilling holes in the range of 0.6 – 0.9 mm. Micro-circles are opened on the scalp, the hair follicle and the textural structures around the hair follicle are separated and removed.

Saffir FUE Hair Transplantation

Just like the Micro FUE technique, neither Saffir FUE nor Micro FUE are actually techniques. They are only sub-innovations of the FUE technique. The only difference of Saffir FUE is that the tips used are made of Sapphire, not metal. It is effective in opening micro chambers in the scalp and is ideal for less crusting rates. It also contributes to the acceleration of the recovery phases. Sapphire-tipped micro needles are much healthier than other needle structures

- Soft Soft FUE Hair Transplant

Although FUE is referred to as a sub-technique of hair transplantation, it is a sub-innovation of the FUE technique. SOFT fue means; It turns out that the hair transplant operation is supported with sedation-focused drugs, so that the patient is relieved but does not have an effect on his consciousness. In summary, with this technique, there is no loss of consciousness, but you can have a hair transplant without feeling any pain. Drugs with sedation effect are not of the type to prevent actions such as going to the toilet and talking.


Fue hair transplantation has been widely preferred recently because it provides many innovations and conveniences compared to older methods. Contrary to the previous methods, the reason why it is more preferred is that the person undergoing the procedure allows faster recovery, since no incisions are made on the scalp of the person. Thus, no stitches are placed on the transplanted area and the problem of stitch scars is eliminated. Since the recovery period is shortened, the natural appearance is faster, therefore the Fue method is preferred.


Ease of Operation

Since the hair follicles taken one by one from the area are applied to the person to be transplanted, serious bleeding does not occur in the rooted area and there is no scar. For this reason, the Fue method is highly preferred.


Easy Application

Fue Hair transplantation is preferred by people who want to avoid pain and have faster hair transplantation because the procedure takes a short time as it is performed with local anesthesia and the entire hair transplantation process is completed within six to seven hours.


Chance to be effective in all conditions

Thanks to the Fue method, it is preferred by people who have a shortage of donors in the area where the hair follicle will be taken, because if there is not enough donor in the area to be rooted, hair follicles can be taken from the beard and chest and applied to the area to be treated.


More natural look

People who want to achieve better results may prefer this method as more frequent hair transplantation and regional transplantation are performed with the Fue hair transplantation method.


Permanent effect rate

For those who are afraid of the possibility of hair loss after hair transplantation, since the hair follicles to be transplanted to the area to be transplanted are taken from areas with non-shedding properties such as the top of the ear and the nape, the hair does not shed in the transplanted area after the procedure.


Before FUE hair transplantation, the hair of the person in the donor area is shortened to 1 mm in size. The hair removal process from the donor area is started after the hair shortening process. Before starting the procedure, the area to be transplanted and the donor area from which the hair will be taken are anesthetized with local anesthesia. General anesthesia is not applied during this method. In addition, any surgical method is not included in the scope of the technique. The donor region is usually determined as the nape region behind both ears. If transplantation procedures such as mustache or beard other than hair transplantation are also considered, this should be reported to the specialist healthcare provider. Because the number of hair follicles and tissue pieces (grafts) in the donor area is limited. After applying local anesthesia, the micro motor tip is brought towards the exit direction of the hair follicle so that the hair follicle is separated from the skin. After taking as many grafts as needed, hair transplantation is performed with the same method to the desired area.


The duration of Fue hair transplantation varies according to the size of the desired area. The amount of hair follicle and hair tissue required for the transplantation area is important for the duration of the procedure. If 4000-4500 hair follicles and hair tissue, called grafts, are needed to be taken during hair transplantation, this process may take approximately 6-7 hours.

Depending on the number of grafts, there may be cases where the hair transplant procedure takes 9 hours. Depending on the status of the session, short breaks may be given during the procedure. Removal of grafts during the Fue technique can take between 2-4 hours. There is a short break after the grafting process.

The most important factors that determine the duration of the process are as follows:

  • The size of the area to be planted,
  • The number of grafts to be taken according to the size of the area,
  • The experience of the health professional who performed the procedure,
  • The number of sessions and session duration preference of the healthcare professional who performed the procedure,
  • The scalp is in a structure that can affect the process.


There are some points that the person should pay attention to before fue hair transplantation. When these points are taken into consideration, the hair transplantation process will be completed without any problems and with an effective result. First of all, the hair in the donor area should be shortened to 1 mm. Hair transplantation will be done after this shortening process.

Apart from this, the points to be considered are:

  • The hair is clean before the operation, there is no oiliness,
  • Chemical substances such as jelly and foam are not present on the hair,
  • Not drinking alcohol if possible in the weeks before the operation,
    - If possible, reduce or completely abandon smoking 1 week in advance,
  • Avoiding cardio exercises that will tire the body 1 week before the operation, not getting too tired of the body,
  • Having a sufficient breakfast in the morning of the operation day, eating light things during lunch, being absolutely full during the procedure,
  • Wearing comfortable clothes, if possible, on the day of the operation.


After Fue hair transplantation, some changes occur on the transplanted hair. The most important of these changes is the shedding of the transplanted hair in a very short time. Although the loss of newly transplanted hair scares the person, the hair that has been shed will grow back permanently after a very short time. After the operation, the person is sent home for rest.


The person is requested not to travel by car or use such vehicles for 6-10 hours from the end of the operation. After hair transplantation, care should be taken not to touch the treated area with hands, this area should not come into contact with water.

Keeping the head upright is important for the edema to heal in a short time. Medicines and creams given by the doctor should be used.


Washing After Hair Transplant

When the hair washing time is reached, care should be taken to use the shampoo recommended by the doctor. Maximum attention should be paid to the transplanted area for 15 days after FUE hair transplant. The pillow used during sleep is important in terms of protecting the transplanted area and the donor area. Stiff pillows that can damage the hair follicles should not be used.


The transplanted hair follicles should never be damaged. Sleeping in the supine position can be beneficial in terms of protecting the hair follicles. Care should be taken not to get any blows to the head, heavy sports should definitely not be done.


Except for light hair abbreviations using scissors, haircuts that can be considered important should be avoided. When all these are taken into consideration, the hair transplantation process will be completed successfully without any problems after the procedure.
