FUE Hair Transplant
FUE method is the latest and most developed technique of hair transplant that is being performed since 1800s. It was addressed as a new hair transplant method in one of the articles of Dr. Bernstein in 2002. In this method, hair follicles are removed individually, therefore there is not any scar left in the donor area.
At first, FUE method was utilized to cover previous FUT scars. However, through time it was understood that with FUE method, extracted follicle amount was 2-3 times more comparing to FUT. Besides, in FUE method, special devices called micro punch with diameters of 0,5-0,9mm are utilized that allow us to extract not only single but also multiple grafts which helps providing a natural and dense result. For these reasons, majority of hair transplant physicians are currently performing FUE method.
How is FUE hair transplant performed?
In order to extract the hair follicles, donor area should be shaved off to 1mm. After shaving, local anesthesia is applied to the donor area.
In our clinic, we utilize the latest techniques of local anesthesia. We use needle-free anesthesia, but other than that we also utilize “Smiling Gas” that is currently being used in Canada and the USA which decreases the level of pain quite successfully.
What should I consider to choose a clinic?
The first thing to do is to find out if the clinic that you consult has a proper medical doctor or not. In order to avoid all the risks of complications, it should be performed in a well equipped clinic under supervision of doctor with an expert team.
In our clinic, all of the hair transplant procedures are carried out under supervision of our Dermatologist Dr. Oyku Celen in her own clinic who is also the co-founder of our company. She personally realizes the consultation and makes the planning of the procedure with the patient. While her expert team performs the surgery, she is present in the operation theatre and supervises each and every step to provide the best result possible.
Hair transplant is a surgical procedure. For this reason one should know that:
Hair transplantation should be carried out under supervision of a plastic surgeon or dermatologist.
There is not such specialty as “Hair Transplant Specialists” in Turkey, neither in any other country. Many clinics claim they have these “specialists” who are not even doctors in reality. These personel are either nurses, or people that do not have any medical background. For this reason, you should know the doctor well. Even if it is a procedure that only requires local anesthesia, only a doctor can know how to handle such possible complications. On the other hand, the ambient and equipment is also very important. It should be performed in a well equipped and sterilized operation rooms.
