What’s a FUE hair transplant? Did you reach this article by searching the question? Yes, we have prepared such an article for you to answer your question.
Hair transplantation with the FUE method is a procedure where we transplant the hair follicles in the nape area between the two auricles to the area we want to surgically scale. Thanks to this process, we make the balding area hairy and restore the image significantly.
How is FUE Hair Transplantation Performed?
This process is roughly a three-step process.
- Collection of hair follicles from the neck
- Planning and preparing the channels in the area where we will plant
- Transplanting the roots to the recipient area
While we harvest the roots, you lie face down on a special stretcher and we relax you with a gentle sedation to prevent the pain of local anesthesia. Then, we apply local anesthesia to the area where we will collect the roots. We continue this process for 2-4 hours, depending on the number of grafts we collect. With the help of a special needle (0.8 mm in diameter), we collect the roots without leaving any traces.
In the second stage, the patient stands on the sofa in a sitting position, leaning back. This stage takes around 40-60 minutes. We continue the third stage for about 2-4 hours depending on the number of grafts we will implant. At this stage, as in the second stage, the patient is resting on a comfortable seat leaning back.
