If you are considering hair transplantation with a FUE technique in Istanbul, we recommend that you examine our patients who have an operation before planning where to do it. There are many clinics and hospitals in the Istanbul region offering FUE, but there are very few healthcare establishments that you can find in a quality, hygienic state. We believe that we really stand out because of customer testimonials and the assurance provided by our hospital. You will see a lot of comments about us not only on our interviews but also on google.
After doing this, we recommend you to take some time to watch our videos about FUE (Istanbul hair transplantation). It is important that you understand what is included in your treatment and what is the right choice for you at Medicana Healthpoint. If you want to start your process with us, you can contact us immediately through our communication channels. Our health consultants will stay in touch with you 24/7.
What is FUE – A Small Description
FUE is similar to the FUT procedure, but Follicular Unit Extraction means that instead of removing and transporting donor skin strips, we will leave only small dot marks by removing individual follicular units directly from the scalp.
Surgical Process – What to Expect
When we begin the surgery, we will shave the donor area of your scalp. The next procedure is to remove the grafts one by one using a 0.8mm to 1mm punch. The procedure can be performed manually or using one of several different surgical instruments.
The next steps involve opening small channels in the affected hair loss area of the scalp. The received grafts are then placed in these channels and allow us to obtain a natural appearance for our patient.
The benefit of a FUE procedure is that it does not leave a long scar as in FUT. Instead, you’ll have traces of unnoticed small dot size.
We only need to use local anesthesia during surgery and you will not experience any pain. However, the procedure will take longer than FUT, so we care about making your experience as comfortable as possible.
In most cases, you may be in surgery for about 10 hours or more in our FUE hair transplant procedure in Istanbul.
Patients will see new hair approximately four months after surgery, and it will take 12 months for them to be in top condition.
