FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction. The FUE technique also forms the basis of all the techniques used in hair transplant operations.
When we say Hair Transplant, technically we speak of FUE Hair Transplant. In other words, we mean that the hair follicles are taken one by one and transplanted one by one to the area where hair loss occurs. In all hair transplant techniques, the hair follicles are taken one by one from the donor area in the same way and transplanted to the recipient area one by one.
The FUE technique is the basic technique in hair transplant surgeries and we can say that we owe the point of hair transplantation to the FUE technique. Thanks to FUE, which was developed with the discovery that the follicular unit can be transplanted as an organ, it has been possible to work with each hair follicle independently. Thus, many advantages such as interfering with the angles of the hair follicles with each other, using the grafts in different parts of the head according to their thickness, and planning the growth direction of the hair root so that the best aesthetic result is achieved. are obtained.
FUE Hair Transplant is at the top of cosmetic operations with developing medical techniques and Hair Transplant expertise and is about to bury baldness in the dusty pages of history.
What is the FUE Hair Transplant?
The FUE hair transplant is an aesthetic hair follicle transplant operation that is performed under local anesthesia to permanently treat hair loss and baldness.
Hair loss can have many different causes and hair loss; You may experience thinning, hairline regression, gap at the temples, or total baldness. Although hair transplantation is still a topic of interest to men, the number of women who benefit from hair loss and male pattern baldness is increasing by the day.
The FUE hair transplant is the most successful and permanent method developed against hair loss, which allows us to achieve the best results in hair transplantation, regardless of the reason.
How is the FUE Hair Transplant performed?
Hair follicles are collected from the nape, channels are opened to the recipient area, and hair follicles are transplanted into these channels. The FUE hair transplant transplantation is simply done this way.
However, hair transplant planning is created on an individual basis. It varies epending on the type of molt, the width of the area to be transplanted and the area of the head. This is the most important factor that determines hair transplant planning.
Depending on the number of grafts that will be harvested from the donor area and the number of channels that will be opened in the recipient area, some details may change during the FUE Hair Transplant application stages. For example, the general trend is primarily to collect grafts from the donor area, but an approach such as opening the channels first may be preferred to shorten the time the hair follicles spend outside.
In the FUE technique, the grafts collected from the donor area are grouped according to their thickness and number of roots before sowing. This stage is the most important and sensitive stage of the FUE technique. The time each graft remains outside is monitored so that the hair follicles do not die. There are some sensitivities, such as transplanting the first hair follicle first.
