FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)

Today, people experiencing hair loss can be provided with natural looking hair with the latest modern technique FUE, the gold standard of hair restoration.

The main difference of using the FUE technique for hair transplantation, is that it leaves no scars and its recovery time is shorter. The success of the operations has also increased as a consequence of the advances in medical devices utilized in the FUE technique. FUE technique can be performed with a variety of different instruments. As a consequence of this, the technique is known with a few different names, such as:

  • Classic FUE (via micro motors)
  • Robotic FUE
  • DHI technique (FUE performed with Choi implanters)
  • Sapphire FUE (FUE performed with Sapphire blades)

FUE Advantages

  • Hair transplantation can result in a more natural-looking and denser appearance.
  • It is a permanent solution for treating moderate to severe hair loss.
  • It is a comfortable technique that is designed to ensure patients with the least amount of discomfort, leaving no external scars after the procedure.
  • FUE hair transplant technique offers patients faster recovery times; They can conveniently return to their daily routine and are able to travel one day after the procedure.
  • With the right operation plan, no damage will be caused in the donor area and no change in the appearance even after multiple operations.
  • 98% of the transplanted grafts will grow as normal hair.

What is FUE Hair Transplant Performed with Sapphire Blades?

The increase in technology advancements taking place each passing day, has paved the way for the development of new, innovative hair transplant techniques as well as hair loss treatments.
Hair transplantation that has progressed and evolved dramatically over the years, transforming into a well-established and minimally invasive surgical procedure, has taken its final form in-line with the more efficient utilization of new medical devices.
The FUE method, which is considered one of the most modern and commonly used hair transplant techniques, ensuring natural-looking results, has carried its success one step further through the utilization of special devices with sapphire blades.

In hair transplantation, before extracting the hair follicles from the donor area and creating the recipient sites for the transplantation process, local anesthesia is applied to the relevant areas.
It takes more time for the anesthetic to take effect when an anesthetic solution is injected into the scalp with needles. The unpleasant sensation experienced during the injection of local anesthetics naturally cause discomfort for the patients.

Now it is possible to perform a hair transplant operation with needle-free injectors with almost no pain by utilizing special anesthetic devices.
These special devices deliver the anesthetic agents into deeper layers of the skin by using pressure to transport the active substance.

Needle-free injector requires a shorter duration for the anesthetic to take effect when compared with conventional needle-syringe systems. For this reason, patients feel more comfortable when anesthetic agents are administered via needle-free injectors.

The liquid jet system that enables anesthesia to be administered without needle syringe systems, when compared with needle syringes, results in a wider distribution of the medication and spread evenly in depth.

Individuals who have fear of injection-related pain and therefore hesitate on having a hair transplant can readily undergo an operation now thanks to this new application of local anesthetics.


What is DHI Hair Transplant?: DHI Hair Transplant is the process of extracting hair follicles from the donor area via utilizing a micro motor and then transplanting them into the receipt site using a pen-like device that contains a hollow needle. The first thing that comes into mind when we say DHI is usually the FUE method, but there are actually some differences between the 2 methods.

DHI method enables the hair transplant to be performed without shaving the head. Hair follicles are transplanted in about 1-2 minutes after the extraction process so they only remain outside the body for a very short time period. It is easier to transplant between hair strands if the patient has nonbalding areas on his/her scalp. It is possible to achieve higher density of hair, especially when the area to be transplanted is not spacious.
