FUE hair transplant in Turkey is one of the most widely practised methods among all hair implantation techniques. Through the FUE method, grafts are extracted from the donor area one by one and transplanted on the balding zone.

As one of the best hair clinics in Turkey, Alana Clinic experts and doctors recommend the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique to patients suffering from male pattern baldness, as the best way to recover their hair without any stitches or scars. Also, only this method makes it possible to implant up to 4,000+ grafts in one single session, making it the most efficient treatment.

An FUE hair implant Turkey all-inclusive package is the most cost-effective and recommended technique for patients who suffer from advanced male pattern baldness and have a large bald area to cover.

What is a FUE Hair Transplant?

The FUE technique is one of the most advanced hair transplantation methods in Turkey. As its name suggests, Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE refers to the extraction method, where all the grafts are extracted one by one. Doctors use a steel blade to make U-shaped canals in the recipient area.

To extract the follicles one by one, doctors use a Micro Motor. This tool has a microtube that can accurately remove hair grafts without invading the scalp tissue of the follicle. Once the grafts are collected safely, the doctors open micro canals on the recipient areas with a steel blade. The collected grafts are then placed in microchannels one by one.

FUE Hair Transplant is the best operation choice for advanced cases of male pattern baldness, because it allows medical teams to cover most of the receding areas, achieving natural and permanent results.

How Is Follicular Unit 12

On the operation day, our qualified doctors in the Alana Hair Clinic will have a face to face consultation with you. Based on your hair type, your medical history, the cause of hair loss and the density of hair in your donor area, the doctor and you will design the expected hairline over the recipient area. Once you are happy with the proposed design, you will move forward with the anesthesia.

Step 2 :
Local Anesthesia
How Is Follicular Unit 13
As part of the FUE hair restoration method, local anaesthesia is applied on the scalp. Once the area is completely numb, the doctor will shave the donor area, which is mostly the back of your head, between the two ears and above the neck.
Step 3 :
How Is Follicular Unit 14
The extraction is the most specific part of the method. The Micro-punch is the main tool used to extract the follicles. The doctors remove the grafts from the donor area randomly and one by one. Due to the minimized damage on your grafts while performing this method, you can expect a maximum number of follicles to be implanted in one single session.
Step 4:
Channel opening
How Is Follicular Unit 15
While the graft resting in saline solution doctors will open micro canals on the recipient area using steel blades. The U-shaped incisions will be the stand for the grafts. It is important to open right-sized canals, in accordance with the follicles’ dimensions. If canals are too big, grafts may not stay fixed in place. On the other hand, if canals are smaller than grafts, the implantation can damage the follicles and decrease the success rate.
Step 5:
How Is Follicular Unit 16
Once all the canals are ready, doctors will start to insert the grafts inside the slits. The implantation angle of the grafts is a key factor in order to give a natural look to the patient’s new hair style. Alana Clinic doctors will decide how to implant each and every graft to achieve the most natural results, following the natural direction of your hair.

Methods of FUE Hair Transplant

As its name implies, Follicular Unit Extraction is the extraction method, not the implantation technique. The very same method of extraction is used in three different hair transplant techniques:

FUE Hair Transplantation:

In FUE technique, after the extraction of hair follicles, grafts are placed in U shaped canal. Blades used for channel opening are made of steel.

DHI Hair Transplantation:

DHI Technique, also known as Direct Hair Implantation, is a method through which extracted grafts are directly injected into the scalp without any extra step for canal opening.

FUE Sapphire Hair Transplantation:

Similar to the FUE method, the grafts are implanted in canal. The blades used to open the slits are made of sapphire emstone, giving their name to one of the most known hair implant techniques.

Difference Between

Strip Method or FUT method is a traditional hair extraction technique that is barely used nowadays. In this old method, a strip is removed from the scalp of the patient, from the back side of the head. It is a relatively big area, so the surgeon generally needs to apply stitches. After that, the strip is dissected into follicular units, which are in turn implanted on the receding or bald areas. Compared to FUT, FUE hair transplant scars are almost invisible, as there is no strip to be taken from the donor area, but only micro scars. The FUE technique is less invasive. It does not need any stitches and requires a shorter recovery time.
