The Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method is the basis of your hair transplant and is used exclusively to harvest your hair follicles. As the most modern and effective technique, it is a crucial part of your hair loss treatment.

Thanks to the manual extraction of individual hair follicles, the FUE technique ensures high precision and preserves the donor area.

Why Choose an FUE Hair Restoration Surgery?

While many clinics still use the outdated FUT technique (“Strip method”) for harvesting grafts, Elithair exclusively uses the modern FUE hair transplantation method.

Here, instead of a whole strip of skin being removed from the donor area, each of your hair follicles are extracted individually. Accordingly, there is no feeling of unease and minimal scarring that is easily hidden with hair growth.

A lot of experience and sensitivity is required for the FUE technique, which is guaranteed by the experienced specialists from Elithair.

What Is the FUE Hair Transplant Procedure?

Your hair transplantation is performed in several steps. An important part of the treatment is the removal of your grafts – and this is the purpose of the FUE hair transplantation.

Each individual step is carried out by Elithair’s dedicated team. This ensures the highest quality and a perfect end result for you.

Step 1: NEOFUE® Preparation

With Elithair’s exclusive NEO FUE preparation, Dr. Balwi has developed an innovative preparatory step that makes your hair transplant even more effective.

Always in the pursuit of progress, our experienced doctor has succeeded in developing a biotin rich serum that vitalises and strengthens your hair follicles in the recipient and donor areas of the scalp before your treatment.

This special serum ensures a high growth rate of up to 98%.

Step 2: Loosening the Grafts

The next step of the FUE procedure in Turkey consists of extracting the hair follicles. Here a special hollow needle is used with a micromotor after a local anaesthetic has been applied.

This tool allows us to first loosen your follicular units before removal, which is a crucial part of this hair transplant technique.

The diameter of the needle is also always adapted to your hair structure. For thick hair, a needle with a diameter of approx. 0.8 mm is used. For thin hair, this is between 0.7 mm and 0.75 mm.

Step 3: Removal of the Hair Follicles

Removal of the grafts

To remove the hair follicles, special tweezers are placed on each of your hair roots.

This process represents the great strength of the follicular unit extraction technique, as it ensures a particularly gentle and extremely precise treatment.

Since each hair root can be removed individually with this procedure, it achieves an extraordinarily high level of precision.

Step 4: Graft Storage

After the grafts have been harvested, they need to be stored before they can be transplanted back into your recipient area.

In order to prepare them optimally for the next step, your hair follicles need to be provided with necessary nutrients.

For this, your grafts are stored in a biotin-rich solution until the next step of the surgery, where your follicles are getting transplanted with the best method for your hair loss situation.

Is it Possible to do it Without Shaving?

Whether you can have an FUE hair transplant without shaving depends on your individual treatment.

If you have a receding hairline, a high forehead or small bald spots, it is quite possible to perform the transplant without completely shaving the donor area.

If, on the other hand, large areas need to be transplanted with male pattern baldness, your hair in the donor area must be shortened. However, if you wear your hair long, you can cover the shortened area without any problems.
