U-FUE Transplant in Turkey

Istanbul, Turkey is recognized worldwide as being the ultimate go-to destination for the highest quality hair transplants. Our Este Medical Group clinic 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.

Este’s Hair Transplant Process

Consultation & Pre-Treatment at Local Clinic

Your hair transplant journey to Turkey starts with a consultation at the nearest Este Medical Group clinic, or online with an Este hair loss specialist. The first thing to do is send us a message through our website and book a U-FUE consultation.  

As part of the consultation an Este hair loss expert will assess your hair loss type, discuss potential hair loss causes, and recommend the most optimal regrowth treatment and treatment timeline for you. This initial consultation will determine if a U-FUE hair transplant Turkey treatment is the best option for your type of hair loss.  

Once a U-FUE treatment has been booked at our hair transplant clinic in Turkey, you will need to undergo some treatment preparation: laser hair regrowth therapy is recommended to stimulate and prepare your scalp for the transplant procedure. Once your transplant is booked you will be fully briefed on what to expect during and after a U-FUE regrowth treatment.

Transplant Surgery in Turkey

Este Medical Group will look after your accommodation and travel to Turkey. When you arrive to our Istanbul hair transplant clinic, our friendly team will be there to greet you (they do speak English, no worries!). Before the U-FUE procedure your transplant team will go over the whole treatment from beginning to end, making sure you are once again fully briefed on what to expect. Post-treatment the team will make sure you have all you need to know to continue with your transplant aftercare.

Treatment begins with a local anaesthetic applied to the treatment areas of the body and scalp. The surgery team will locate and extract hair from a stable zone (also called the donor site) on your body (e.g., back or sides of the head) and transplant these hairs one by one to the treatment area you wish to improve with new hair growth. This will all be reviewed during your initial consultation. There is no downtime from this procedure, after the treatment is complete you will carry on with your day like any other.

Aftercare & Check-Ups at Local Clinic

After the hair transplant, you can go about your daily business as usual. Since you are in Istanbul, we highly recommend you take some time for sightseeing and eating delicious Turkish cuisine.    

Once you leave Turkey you will be booked for some hair transplant aftercare at the nearest Este clinic. Depending on the extent of your hair transplant and recovery, you may be booked for specialist hair washing, hair growth maintenance, and laser hair regrowth therapy. Individual aftercare plans may vary from client to client. All Este Medical Group hair transplant clients will receive check-ups and follow-up attention.  

An Este haircare expert will customise for you a detailed aftercare plan to best care for the scalp and new hair growth. This includes a step-by-step first hair wash, and a final post-treatment hair wash guide. Este’s transplant aftercare facilitates the regrowth of stronger hair and a healthier scalp.
