In this article, we will learn about hair transplantation in Turkey with the FUE technique, what are its advantages, how it is performed, in addition to the stages and the difference between them and other techniques.
Follicular Unit Extraction - known as FUE - is a type of hair transplantation, which is done by taking individual hair follicles from the donor site and transferring them to another part of the body; where the hair is lighter, or absent, this part is called the recipient site.
Surgeons use precise pricks to extract and transfer individual follicles, without leaving any scars.
It is much less invasive than the FUT technique used previously, and this ensures that no scars appear in the donor area.
This technique does not leave any scars during the extraction of hair follicles from the donor area, and it is not used in hair transplantation of the head only, but also includes eyebrow, mustache, and beard transplantation effectively.
It is a method developed for those for whom traditional methods are not suitable.
The FUE technique allows many follicles to be implanted in one session. On average, about five thousand follicles.
The main disadvantage of FUE is that the number of follicles that you can transplant is limited to the size and density of the donor area, and as a result, it often produces fewer follicles than FUT.
Follicles are also more prone to damage compared to FUT follicles and the quality of extraction matches the skill and experience of the surgeon.
Hair should be shampooed daily to remove scabs.
After 7-10 days, there will be no traces of dry blood or scabs on your scalp.
You can start washing your hair normally no later than 14 days after hair transplant , and if necessary, the hair can be washed more than once a day after the operation.
At the beginning of the hair transplant procedure , patients sit for individual consultation with the specialist doctor.
It is important to carry out an individual evaluation for each case and to determine the optimal number of follicles to be transplanted, in addition to their location.
During this step, the surgeon uses a special tool to extract follicles from the patient's donor area. The follicles are traditionally extracted from the back and sides of the scalp.
During and after follicle extraction, our team takes effective measures to preserve the follicles for transplantation.
Once enough follicles are extracted, the specialist surgeon begins to implant them, and the accompanying team loads the individual follicles into the transplantation pens, one by one, and passes them to the surgeon.
After the main steps of hair transplantation are complete, it is important to follow the aftercare procedures correctly.
This includes washing the donor and recipient areas, protecting the transplanted follicles, avoiding excessive rubbing, impacts, and direct sunlight, and in Ilajak Medical we will determine - in agreement with the surgeon - a day for a medical follow-up to check your recovery, one day after the operation.

The main difference between FUE and DHI is the method of follicle transplantation in the recipient rea.
During the FUE procedure, the surgeon implants the extracted follicles manually.
In the DHI technique, a specific implant device also known as a Choi Implanter Pen is used.
Moreover, FUE requires opening the canal before hair transplantation, while it is not needed with DHI.
The main differences between the technologies can be summarized in the table below:
Shorter and Faster recovery
Longer and slower recovery
Better hair density
Lower hair density
Covers smaller area
Covers larger area
The primary difference between FUE and traditional FUE is the use of sapphire blades instead of blades made of metal.
In addition to opening smaller channels compared to the metal blade channels, sapphire blades also help shortening the patient's healing time.
