U-FUE Transplant in Turkey

Istanbul, Turkey is recognized worldwide as being the ultimate go-to destination for the highest quality hair transplants. Este Medical Group in Turkey has a solid reputation for providing superior service and a proven track record of successful hair transplants and hair regrowth with our clients. Este’s Istanbul clinic recently went up against 3,000 other transplant clinics in the Best of Year Awards and won first place!  

Typically, hair loss restoration techniques require the head to be shaved to provide access to the maximum number of hairs possible to harvest from a donor area. The U stands for unshaven in a U-FUE hair transplant. With a traditional Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) treatment the donor area is shaved for unlimited access to the maximum number of hairs possible to harvest. The U-FUE hair transplant differs in that the donor area and treatment area is not shaved, as many hair transplant clients prefer not to undergo regrowing established hair, or they want to keep their hair longer for aesthetic reasons. This technique is the latest advancement in the treatment of hair loss. This undetectable transplant treatment gives clients who do not wish to shave their heads the opportunity to restore their hair growth in a minimally invasive, effective way.

If you have questions about hair loss solutions, we invite you to arrange a consultation with one of our experienced Este Medical Group haircare experts.

What makes FUE Hair Transplant Procedure the most Successful Technique?

Difference Between FUE and U-FUE Hair Transplant

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.

Causes of Hair Loss

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:  

  • Genes: male and female pattern baldness can be hereditary
  • Age: aging often precipitates increased hair loss
  • Hormonal imbalance: in males high levels of the DHT hormone can lead to hair loss; for females pregnancy/menopause often associated with hair loss
  • Stress: significant physical/emotional stress
  • Diet: deficiencies in nutrients can affect hair health
  • Vitamin deficiency: low levels of certain vitamins
  • Medications: hair loss can be a rare medication side effect, however a variety of drugs may contribute
  • Hairstyle: some chemical hair treatments and hairstyles

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.

Our Hair Transplant Techniques and Technologies

Sapphire FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)

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 (Direct Hair Implantation)

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.

Pain-Free Hair Transplant with Sedation

Your comfort is our priority. That's why we offer sedation with our hair transplant procedures to help you feel at ease and ensure you’re as comfortable as possible during the procedure.  

Sedation helps to alleviate anxiety, allowing patients to remain calm and relaxed while our skilled professionals perform the transplant.
