What are the Advantages of FUE?
FUE Technique – Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is an extremely famous hair transplant method that involves the use of a tiny, round punch for extracting follicular units from the bald donor areas of patients, one by one. Afterwards, the follicular unit grafts are transplanted into the balding patches of a patient. FUE, similar to FUT hair transplant in Turkey, comes with a number of advantages that patients interested in the process should be familiar with. FUE Technique
The process is not as invasive as Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). There is no need to remove or dissect any strip of scalp that bears the follicular units. FUE grafts or two-layer suture is used to close the wound, after which the tissues immediately surrounding the wound are individually extracted with the help of 0.6 – 1.0 mm punches. There is no need to close any post-extraction wounds. FUE Technique
The operation does not lead to “linear scar” that is related to FUT process. Many qualified hair transplants in Turkey surgeons can use state of the art methods like the trichophytic closure to create “strip scars” that cannot be virtually spotted. Thus, you can wear your hair cropped or shortly after this surgery. Although this is not an entirely scar-less technique, the small dots can be concealed when the operation is properly carried out.

Quicker healing and less post-operative pain
As the process is less invasive, you can heal and recover faster. There is no need to wait for stitches, wounds or staples to heal, and concerns about putting the healing area under no tension for some time. You can experience minimal discomfort and pain at the donor site, and sleep better after a hair transplant at SHIFT Hair Transplant. It is possible to return to work and everyday activities much faster. You can even return to weightlifting and other strenuous exercise activities that are prohibited for up to three months after strip surgery or FUT. FUE Technique
Chance of higher donor supply
With FUE, extraction of follicular units is possible from varied and wide regions of the body and scalp. This involves harvesting hair follicular units from different areas of the legs, arms, beard, chest, nape, scalp and various other spots on the body where proper donor hair is absent. FUE Technique
The chance to “Cherry Pick” follicular units
With FUE hair restoration, surgeons at SHIFT Hair Transplant can also cherry pick the best follicular units for transplantation purposes. This involves spotting, separating and individually choosing single-haired, finer follicular units for the vital hairline regions. FUE Technique
Removal of healthy hair follicles
The treatment involves the use of a specialized tool for the removal of healthy hair follicles in a safe way. This ensures that the follicles and the adjoining scalp suffer the least damage. Surgeons keep the follicles in a solution, which gives them the longest lifespan while outside the body. Another specialized tool is used for controlling the direction, depth and angle of the implant so that new hairs grow in a natural way. With FUE Hair Transplant in Turkey, there are no scars or stitches and you can recover faster.
Conducted under a local anaesthetic
The entire process is conducted under the effects of a local anaesthetic. Based on how large the treatment area is, it can comprise of just one session that can last as long as 8 hours or for a number of sessions over a couple of days. Although patients can return to work the next day, most of them choose to take leave for 7 days to recover optimally. The sterile saline solution should be used to moisten the area. While on antibiotic courses for 7 days, patients cannot smoke or drink.
Painless and rapid healing
