FUE hair transplantation (follicular unit extraction) in Glow Up Istanbul
In this technique, individual follicles are removed from the DHT-resistant hair ring at the back of the head and transplanted directly onto the hairless area. This elaborate method is suitable for patients who want to reconstruct small areas such as secret hairline corners or hair lines. The hair root density is one of the most important factors for the success of this method.
*For this purpose, the hair on the back of the head (donor area) is shaved short and hair follicles are loosened and removed with a tiny special drill. The devices we use can even remove several transplants with three or four hair roots at the same time without sticking or breaking the follicles.
*Then, tiny two-dimensional incisions (slits) are made in the bald area to create an opening in which the previously removed follicles are inserted. Due to the slit opening, the graft can only be used in one direction, so that a largely homogeneous growth direction of the hair is achieved.
*After 2 to 3 weeks, the transplanted hair reaches the natural loss stage: After 2 to 3 weeks, the hair enters the reemergence process and permanently covers the treated areas.
ATTENTION: Everyone is unique. This means that the treatment process, planning and outcomes can be different for you. The information you see here is the averages encountered in a large sample size. For details please contact us via WhatsApp: +90 542 475 41 10
Improved results of FUE hair transplantation with the sapphire percutaneous technique
For even better therapeutic success, we offer you hair transplantation according to the FUE method with the innovative sapphire percutaneous technique in our treatment centres in Turkey. The donor hairs (grafts) are not inserted into two-dimensional slits, but are transplanted into the scalp through an ultra-fine three-dimensional perforation.
*The three-dimensional opening allows the hair follicles to be inserted at a much more natural angle, while the direction of growth is limited in the classic FUE method.
*The sapphire percutaneous technique allows a close-meshed placement of hair root canals. This allows 40 to 50 follicles per cm2 to be transplanted, making the hair even more luxuriant.
Procedure of hair transplantation at Glow Up Istanbul
Before the transplantation, our experienced plastic surgeons discuss the most suitable treatment concept for you. The desired hairline is then drawn with a pencil.
Already 1 week before the planned transplantation you should refrain from drinking alcohol, cigarettes and stimulating drinks such as coffee and tea and also interrupt the intake of blood thinning agents.
The duration of the transplant depends on the number of follicles to be transplanted. In 5 to 8 hours, up to 6,000 transplants can be inserted during one session.
Hair transplants are carried out under local anaesthesia, so the procedure is largely painless for you. Possible swelling and tension pains usually subside a few hours after the operation.
Risks of hair transplantation
As a rule, hair transplants are carried out without complications. Nevertheless, hair transplantation, like any other surgical procedure, involves certain risks. However, as you are treated by experienced plastic surgeons, hair technicians and anaesthesiologists, these risks can almost be excluded.
In a few cases, patients report a slight feeling of tension or tension on the scalp. Skin irritations or itching, which accompanied the healing process in the treated areas, were also very rarely noticed. Wound healing disorders are almost never observed due to the tiny puncture channels.
