I met with the obstetrician Pervan Hanım and I came face to face with a physician who was so sweet-smiling and extremely good at my job, listening, conscious, knowing what she was saying. I would definitely strongly recommend it but its smiling face, accented speech, dessert is enough. Thank you :))

WHAT IS FUE HAIR TRANSPLANTATION TECHNIQUE?

For those who want to have a hair transplant, the burning question is which hair transplantation procedure is the best technique. The FUE technique, which refers to “Follicular Unit Extraction” or “Individual Follicle Extraction”, is considered the most advanced hair transplant technique available. The FUE hair transplant technique is surgical variant of the follicular micro transplant technique and it is implemented by extracting the follicles of the donor site on an individual basis without the need of stitches and without leaving scars. These follicular units in groups of 1, 2, 3 or 4 hair groups are extracted in its natural groupings and prepared carefully. As a matter of principle, there is no better technique than another since the form of extraction the follicles from the donor zone by keeping its natural form. 

WHO ARE THE GOOD CANDIDATES FOR THE FUE TECHNIQUE?

  • Patients who have limited and controlled hair loss,
  • Patients who prefer to avoid scarring,
  • Patients with donor sites of low density,
  • Patients who want to disguise scars of previous hair transplantation procedures.

 

Extraction of follicles by the FUE technique is much more simple in comparison with other hair transplantation techniques. Primarily, FUE is a minor surgery, classified as a simple medical act.  As a heart of the matter, no damage occurs in any follicular unit during extraction. And there is no risk of sensivity loss in donor zone. The size of needles or punches is significant at this point. The success of FUE is derived from the accurate use of the smallest possible punch. Choosing the right size plays a decisive role during the extraction.

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique is known as the best and optimal hair transplantation available today. It gives benefit in micro surgery with the smallest micro-scalpels which are less than 1 mm thick used in the process of surgery.  By the help of these smallest needles and micro-scalpels, the more number of hairs can be extracted and transplanted in the right angle and direction into the treatment zone.

WHO CAN HAVE HAIR TRANSPLANTATION BY FUE TECHNIQUE?

FUE technique is available for the patients in good health and of all ages who want to have hair transplantation.

Another required spesification for those who wants to have FUE is adequate donor area in good quality of dense hair.

Should hair transplantation preferred in early ages? It is predicted that further surgery sessions can be required in following ages by hormonal reasons and nonstable hair loss. Also, personal and aesthetic expectations may change in time. Ages of 30-40 are expected to give pretty much more satisfactory results for this reason. That’s why, it is highly recommended to start hair transplantation after the age of 30 not only due to hormonal reasons but also because of changing aesthetic expectations of young people in  years.

 

Apart from the age of the patient, other factors that affect the quality and result of FUE hair transplantation surgery are:

  • Density of the donor zone
  • The extent of transplantation zone
  • The number of hairs extracted per follicular unit
  • Sex
  • Quality of grafts
  • Hair type and
  • Hair colour

In order to get the best result after the FUE surgery, the candidates are advised to have these stated qualities checked by a dermatologist. If all qualifications are adequate in your texture structure, then you are a good candidate for implementation of FUE technique.

The rest depends on success of treatment in right clinique and by the right implementer.

THE NEWEST TECHNOLOGY IN FUE HAIR TRANSPLANTATION

The state of the art technology in FUE technique is the robotic treatment. The 2nd and 3rd generation of robotic FUE technologies are also available. Desire you get the the latest generation of treatment, seek for the latest versions of technology in the hair transplantation clinique as well as the extensive experience of treament team.

By means of highly accurate imaging spesification of robotic technology, it is possible to extract more follicular units in a safe way without leaving any trace or scar.  We need hardly mention that the effective use of robotic technology requires to be applied by an experienced surgeon for good results.

THE ADVANTAGES OF FUE TECHNIQUE

There are several advantages strengths of FUE technique for the benefits of the patients. If needed to list briefly, it can be said that

  • short sessions, (6-8 hrs)
  • quick recovery

WHICH HAIR TRANSPLANTATION TECHNIQUE IS THE BEST?

The FUE hair tranplant technique is currently known to be the latest and most advanced hair transplantation method. Especially when used in crown area on head, it gives quick and most advantageous results both in men and women.

Well known advantages of FUE hair transplantation technique can be listed just like below;

  • FUE is available with the smallest needles and micro surgical tools so that it helps to extract a large number of graft from donor zone
  • Patients are able to recover in a very quick way after surgery, just like in 2-4 days.

There are several forms of FUE technique depending on the surgical tools used during the procedure.

The very useful types of FUE technique currently available are:

  • Gold FUE Technique
  • Perkutan Technique

In Gold FUE Technique, the surgical tools used in surgery are made up of gold. Gold is known to be the most coherent material to the human body and the very special gold surgery tools are designed in a very sensitive way.

In Perkutan Technique, the micro surgery tools are designed not to damage the application area without leaving any scars or trace. By this means, recovery period gets the shortest ever. The most delicate part of Perkutan Technique is that it needs to be applied by an extense experienced surgeon or surgery team who are highly competent in micro surgery.  In comparison with other methods, another strength of Perkutan technique is get shaved is not required.

HOW TO DECIDE THE BEST HAIR TRANSPLANTATION METHOD FOR YOU?

When you decide to have your hair transplanted, there are some clues to take into consideration.  There are several weaknesses and strenths of each hair transplantation technique.

First of all, one of the most important characteristic of a hair transplantation technique is the surgery method and surgery tools used. Some techniques are pretty much better in making the surgery without leaving any scar or trace.

Another very important issue that patients should consider is the recovery time. Some techniques are much more available to provide the fast and shortest recovery for the patients.

What you need to know about Hair Transplant in Turkey

Hair Transplant Procedure to cover bald patches

Also known as Hair Restoration or Hair Transplantation - the surgical process of moving hair follicles from one part of the body, rich in hair (known as a donor site) and embedding them at the recipient site (the bald area).

It is a minimally invasive procedure, performed under local anesthetic and is most commonly used to treat male baldness, but the technique can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair and to fill in scars. The procedure usually lasts between 4 to 8 hours, depending on the number of grafts.

While there are many causes of hair loss, the most common reason, especially for men, is genetics. Hereditary hair loss as men age is the number one leading factor of baldness.

MyMediTravel currently lists 18 facilities in Turkey offering Hair Transplant procedures - see above for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Hair Transplant can vary according to each individual’s case and will be determined based on photos and an in-person assessment with the specialist.

What Does The Procedure Involve?

We lose an average of 100 hairs a day, however, these hairs are immediately replaced by new hairs growing at the same time. Hair loss can occur suddenly or gradually and it may affect your scalp or your entire body, depending on what’s causing it. Other causes of hair loss may include:

  • Stress - a lot of people may experience hair thinning for several months due to a physical or emotional shock. However, this type of hair loss is only temporary.
  • Certain Hairstyles and treatments - hairstyles that pull your hair like tight pigtails, ponytails or braids can actually cause traction alopecia. Permanent hair treatments and hot oil treatment may also lead to hair loss; these hair treatments cause inflammation to the hair follicles. If there is scarring, hair loss may be permanent.
  • Radiation Therapy - for example, during cancer treatment.
  • Certain medical conditions and hormonal changes - in women, hormonal changes due to pregnancy, childbirth menopause or thyroid problems may cause temporary or permanent hair loss. As for medical conditions, hair loss may be due to alopecia, scalp infections like ringworm or a hair-pulling disorder known as trichotillomania.

Sudden hair loss may also be a sign of a specific medical condition that will require treatment. You will need to consult your doctor if you experience more than your usual hair loss whenever you are combing or washing your hair and also if you encounter a sudden patchy loss of hair.

A hair transplant is a common treatment performed on people who are experiencing baldness due to aging and heredity factors. However, if you are completely bald with absolutely no hair left, then this type of treatment may not be applicable for you, as you won't have sufficient donor hair to supply.

The hair transplant procedure involves taking hair from your Donor Site and transferring it to the area(s) lacking in hair, the Recipient Site, and a local anesthetic will be applied before the procedure begins to limit any discomfort.

There are two main methods used in a hair transplant procedure:

  1. Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) - strips of tissue will be removed from your donor area, these strips will be cut into individual follicular units. Small cuts will be made on your scalp where the follicular unit grafts will be placed. This method is becoming less popular.
  2. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) - individual hair follicles will be directly extracted from your donor area and moved to your recipient site using a specialist microsurgical needle. FUE is now the preferred technique for hair transplants as it will not leave a linear scar at the back of the head.

Procedures are undertaken by a fully qualified technician and usually involve the extraction of around 3,000 grafts, going up to 4,000. Any more, and it will likely require two separate sittings to complete.

How Long Should I Stay in Turkey?

Both methods used for Hair Transplant treatments usually take 4-8 hours to complete and you will be able to go back to your hotel immediately after. With FUE technique, there are no stitches or staples to be removed, so you won't need to stay in Turkey for long after the procedure, just allow a day or two to be sure before traveling home. You should expect to pay the clinic another visit the day after the treatment so the doctor can remove the bandage, examine the areas of intake and transplantation of follicles, before washing your hair using a special technique that you will learn to perform by yourself. Finally, the doctor will provide you with a special shampoo that will help to restore the skin.

What's the Recovery Time?

Your scalp will continue to be sensitive to pain for a few days, during which time you should continue to take the medications provided by the doctor. On top of the pain killers and anti-inflammatory meds, you may also be given antibiotics to lessen the risk of infection, as uncommon as this may be.

You should expect to return to work and your daily routine, including exercise, after 5 days. However, the signs of a hair transplant will remain for at least another 2-3 weeks, at which point the newly transplanted hairs will start to fall out - but don't be alarmed! This is to be expected as you've just had a follicle extraction, so dead hair will simply make way for new hair over the coming weeks and months.

If the average person's hair only grows at a centimeter per month, then it will take some time before you can wear your hair long again. You could expect to display short and consistent hair just 4-6 weeks after the treatment.

What About Aftercare?

After the procedure is complete, anti-swelling medication and painkillers will be available and you'll be provided with various essentials to see you through the days immediately following. Post-op items may include; specialist shampoo, lotion, multivitamins, a special hat, a headband, neck pillow, and wound dressing.

Having already been provided with your post-op aftercare products, you may also be offered Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy to help stimulate the hair follicles and encourage hair growth. This is where a small amount of blood is taken, rich in plasma, which is then injected into the Recipient Site.

What's the Success Rate Like?

The success rate for hair transplants is one of the highest, at 98% and is considered the only truly effective remedy for hair loss. Scarring is the most common side effect but is only applicable to FUT. Other potential risks and side effects could include infections, temporary loss of sensation around the surgical sites, inflammation of hair follicles (folliculitis), temporary scalp pain, itching, and swelling.

Are there Alternatives to a Hair Transplant?

Laser therapy is one alternative to a hair transplant - a low-level laser device will be used as a treatment for a hair loss specifically caused by genetics. This low-level laser with a wavelength of 650 nanometres can actually stimulate your hair growth. However, long term effects for this type of alternative still remains uncertain.

PRP Therapy is another alternative to Hair Transplant. This type of treatment will make use of your own blood to promote hair growth. Your blood will be spun in a centrifuge to separate your blood’s plasma component from your red and white blood cells. Plasma contains many growth factors that promote hair growth when injected into the scalp.

Other non-surgical alternatives could include simply shaving all your hair off, trying other hairstyles or using a wig or hairpiece.

How do FUT and FUE Compare?

The two most common techniques used are the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE):

1. FUT, also referred to as FUSS (Follicular Unit Strip Surgery), involves the removal of a strip of skin from the back of the head containing lots of hair follicles, which is stitched up and hidden by the surrounding hair. Then the strip of follicles is divided into 500-2,000 tiny grafts containing just a few hairs. These are then embedded across the bald area of the head.

2. FUE does not require a strip of skin to be removed, instead, the hair follicles are individually removed from the donor site and positioned across the bald area in tiny slits created by a scalpel or needle.
