The main difference between a FUE and a U-FUE hair transplant is that your scalp will not be shaved as part of the treatment. U-FUE is the same as FUE in that hairs are extracted from a donor area (e.g., the back or sides of the head) but the donor and treatment areas are not shaved. The U-FUE transplant technique is far more delicate and requires a high level of skill to target the healthiest hairs for transplanting and implanting. With both FUE and U-FUE transplants each hair is moved one by one, resulting in a completely natural and healthy-looking head of hair. Our expert surgeons at Este Medical Group have many years of experience executing this complex procedure.
Hair loss may be happening to you for one reason or a set of circumstances. The sooner you seek professional help, the more likely you are to prevent further hair loss. There are many things that can cause or influence hair loss including:
The best way to find out if a U-FUE treatment in Turkey is appropriate for you is to book an Este hair loss consultation.
Sapphire FUE stands at the very forefront of hair transplant innovation. This technique involves using precision-crafted sapphire blades instead of traditional steel blades for extracting hair follicles from the donor area.
The ultra-sharp and fine tips of the sapphire blades allow for more precise and minimally invasive incisions, resulting in smaller, cleaner grafts and reduced scarring. Patients benefit from quicker healing times, minimal discomfort, and natural-looking results with improved graft survival rates.
Sapphire DHI adds to Sapphire FUE by combining it with the Direct Hair Implantation method. This advanced approach allows the simultaneous extraction and implantation of hair follicles, which minimises the time follicles spend outside the body and optimises their viability.
Sapphire DHI offers a swift and efficient hair transplant process, precise graft placement, and seamless, undetectable results.

Here’s why people choose Este Turkey for professional hair transplants and aftercare.
Everyone has a different experience with hair loss as there are several types of hair loss. A hair transplant might not be necessary for all types of hair loss. Effective hair loss treatments are: microinjections, laser treatment, and/or surgery (e.g., U-FUE and FUE hair transplant). To best answer that question it is recommended you book a consultation with an Este Medical Group hair loss specialist. Message us directly through the Este website.
During your Este consultation, our hair specialist will discuss your hair goals and your current hair loss to ensure you select the treatment that will provide you with the best results. It really comes down to whether or not you are open to having your scalp shaved and how you feel about that part of the procedure. Again, an Este hair specialist will be able to advise you if this is necessary or not, but U-FUE is a highly successful treatment that allows you to forgo shaving your head.
Much depends on your daily routine, and if you are in a client-facing role or remote working in privacy. The general recommendation is you can return to work within 2-5 days. There are barely any side effects from this safe and proven treatment. You might experience some redness, swelling, numbness, or temporary scabbing on the scalp. These side effects are common, however not harmful; they will decrease and fade within a few days. This is something you can discuss with an Este hair transplant specialist during your transplantation consultation.
Every client has a different experience, but on average it will take 6-12 months to be able to see the hairs grow thick. In just five months clients experience visible hair growth (i.e., on average 50% hair growth). And within a year most transplant recipients will experience up to 100% hair growth.
Each Este Turkey hair transplant client will have a customised post-treatment aftercare plan to follow for the optimal care for their scalp and new hair growth. For example, you can start using hairspray, gel or mousse to hold your hairstyle in place about four weeks after surgery. Hair mousse can be especially helpful to create volume and make hair look fuller while your new hair is undergoing its growth cycle. It is best to let an Este haircare expert make these recommendations post-treatment.
