FUE Hair Transplant
Micro FUE Hair Transplant in Turkey
Hair loss, especially permanent hair loss, can be a psychologically and mentally debilitating condition, which many men and women already suffer from in the UK. Luckily, there's a solution that will end your hair loss woes "permanently": a FUE hair transplant in Turkey or Follicular Unit Extraction transplant, to be precise.
What is a Micro FUE Hair Transplant?
A u-FUE hair transplant in turkey involves the use of a specialised micro-motor which extracts hair follicles one by one while the patient is under local anaesthesia. The grafts are then repositioned in the bald areas, according to the natural angle and direction in which the patient's hair grows. The donor area for the procedure is mostly the back of the head since the follicles here are genetically stronger and far more resistant to thinning and shedding.
The grafts are repositioned and inserted via micro incisions in the recipient site or 'bald spots'. A micro FUE hair transplant procedure is generally painless and can be completed in about 6-8 hours, although this may vary according to the number of grafts needed.
What are the steps involved in a FUE hair transplant in Turkey?
If you're travelling to Turkey for surgery and looking forward to the best Turkey hair transplant experience, then it's important to know how a FUE hair transplant procedure works:
Your surgeon will first shave your entire head. Next, they will administer local anaesthesia which will numb the site(s) in about 5 minutes or so. Most people wonder "Is FUE hair transplant painful?", and it isn't due to the use of local anaesthesia.
Right before the extraction and implantation process, your surgeon will ascertain the thickness of your overall hair as well as follicles per graft, and your hair type. It's important to establish this early in the process as it will help your surgeon determine the total number of grafts to extract, in order to meet your aesthetic goals. For example, the more you want your receding hairline and bald spots to be covered, the more follicles per graft will be needed.
Next, your surgeon will use a small handheld motorised incision tool (just under a millimetre in diameter) to extract grafts out of the donor area, one at a time. Every follicular unit extracted contains anywhere between 2-4 hair strands, which ensures that your "best hair transplant in Turkey" does not have an unnatural or pluggy-looking appearance. Next, using a pair of forceps, your surgeon will pick out the follicular units, placing them in a solution so that they can survive throughout the procedure.
After the extraction is complete, your surgeon will begin the insertion process. This requires making micro incisions in the bald spots or recipient region and then implanting the freshly extracted hair follicles. The angling, placement and density of the transplanted hair is done exactly according to your hair's existing angle and growth pattern, so as to give a very natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Opening the follicle canals in the scalp is a very delicate procedure in itself and the most important aspect of a FUE hair transplant - only if it is done properly by a professional will it yield a natural appearance. In about 6-8 hours, you can expect the procedure to be concluded, although for some patients, this may be up to 12 hours, should they require a larger number of grafts.

What kind of patients are 'suitable candidates' for FUE hair transplant in Turkey?
Any individual, be it male or female, is a suitable candidate for FUE hair transplant in Turkey, if they are suffering from "pattern baldness", which is a genetic health condition both men and women experience.
Additionally, patients are required to have reasonable follicle density in the donor region (typically the back of the head), which most people do, anyway.
What are the recovery & after-care steps?
Many people going for this procedure ask this question: how long does a hair transplant take to heal?
If done by an expert surgeon at the best hair clinic in Turkey, the procedural downtime is minimal and you can typically get back to work in about 2-3 days, although this also depends on the nature of your work. Hair regrowth typically begins in about 3-6 months, and in about 12-18 months, you'll see full-fledged results.
