What is Fue Technique Hair Transplant? FUE technique is the process of taking the hair follicles in the nape area one by one with the help of a micro motor and transplanting them to the bald area where needed. Hair transplantation is performed after applying local anesthesia. With local anesthesia, the person’s pain during and after the operation is eliminated. A hair transplant of 4000-4500 grafts takes about 6 hours.
In men, the hair follicles, especially in the crown and forehead area, are damaged and shed because they are sensitive to the hormone testosterone. However, the hair follicles in the nape area are not sensitive to testosterone hormone, so they do not fall out. Hair transplantation is the process of transferring these non-shedding hair follicles to the needed area. If the hair follicles are successfully removed and transplanted from the donor area with the least shedding, they retain their non-shedding feature.
Since the procedure is performed under local anesthesia, the patient and the doctor are in communication during the procedure. The person feels comfortable and does not feel pain during the operation. While only local anesthesia is applied, the person may feel a slight pain. If the medications recommended by the doctor are used regularly after the operation, the process will be completed comfortably and quickly.
Advantages of FUE Technique
- Due to the use of micro motors to take the hair follicles, the removed area heals faster. It allows more grafts to be taken in a shorter time.
- Approximately 4000-4500 grafts can be transplanted in one session.
- Since the hair follicles are taken one by one, there are no stitches, scars and pain in the area where the roots are taken.
- After the hair transplantation process is over, the person returns to a very comfortable social and business life.
The process after hair transplantation with FUE technique
After the operation, red crusts due to blood coagulation are seen in the transplanted area. It is recommended to wash your hair every day and once for 10 days starting from the 2nd day after planting. Then, thanks to these washings, crusting on the skin is prevented. These crusts are completely shed within 7-10 days and the planting area is healed.
With the shedding of the crusts formed, some or all of the transplanted hair falls out. However, shedding is not the root but the hair that is planted, and this shedding is normal.
There is no change in this appearance during the 3-month period after the operation. At the end of the 3rd month, new hair starts to grow. Visible change occurs in the person who has transplanted from the 6th month. After this period, the hair continues to grow with an average increase of 10% each month. As a result, at the end of one year, the patient has new hair.
