With FUE technique, the procedure starts with the local anesthesia to the donor area, the area in the back and sides of your head between two ears, followed by the individual extraction of the follicular units together with the surrounding microscopic tissue by using special tools appropriate for the thickness of the hair (0,6 – 0,9 mm) with no pain, no cutting, no scar or stitching. Then, the extracted follicular units are placed in the recipient hairless area.
The planting process is completed approximately in 4 to 8 hours in a single day without keeping you back from your social life. Considering how comfortable the procedure is, you should know that waiting for too long is nothing more than a waste of time. There will be no swelling on your head or bruising around your eyes, no pain or bleeding. We only require you to use the medication prescribed by your doctor carefully for a week and to follow our advices for a couple of days. Provided that you pay attention to these points, we will complete the post-transplantation period without any problems.
The first hair wash is performed by us on the 3rd day following the transplantation, and we explain and show you in detail how you should wash your hair. You do the subsequent washes during 10-12 days as explained to you and prevent any scabs or coagulation on the transplanted area.
Hair Growth Process :
The one-month period following the transplantation is “shock loss” period, also called the anagen phase. It is, in other words, shedding of implanted hair strands due to insufficient nutrition or exposition to airflow in the adaptation period of a few days. However, that does not mean that every patient experiences this period or that all of the implanted hair strands will fall out. That some or all of the implanted hair strands fall out is not a problem at all.
This is a normal phase.
By the 3rd month, the implanted hair slowly starts to grow and come out on the scalp. That means, you can easily observe your hair growing. By the 6th month, the process will be half-way through, meaning half of the implanted hair will have been grown. In minimum 8 months, maximum 18 months the implanted hair grows totally, and the process is completed.
