Follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant is performed by removing hair follicles one by one from your skin under anesthesia and implanting them into the area where the procedure will be applied. This process makes the hair in the transplanted area appear thicker. The duration of the operation can vary between 6 and 8 hours. The process may vary depending on your hair loss.
Hair transplantation is the most effective natural and permanent method to get new hair to people who experience hair loss. The purpose of hair transplantation is to ensure that the patients have a healthy, natural, new appearance as if they had never lost hair. In the hair transplantation process, the hair is taken from the area where there is no hair shedding.
Another important element of the FUE application, which is performed when hair thinning or hair loss has occurred, is that the patients should have enough hair to be taken from other sites (donor area) for FUE hair restoration.
Unless the hairs of the patient are healthy or thick enough to transplant into a sparse or balding scalp, those people might not be suitable candidates for FUE.

It is important for the transplantation process to process based on the patient's hair type. The key to offering natural and aesthetic results to everyone, regardless of whether they have straight or coily hair (or people with curl patterns), is to choose a successful and competent plastic surgeon.

The hair, follicle, and surrounding tissue are cut in a cylindrical shape. The motor tip is gently brought closer to the hair follicles and pulled. The follicles are not damaged during the operation. After the follicular hair follicles are collected, the hairs are put in the holes that are opened in the hairless part.
