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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
