Being one of the most popular forms of hair transplant in Turkey, a FUE (follicular unit extraction) transplant is a minimally invasive procedure which can lead to exceptional results. The three step process is relatively simple:
- Hair follicles are extracted from donor regions which are areas where hair loss does not occur. Often the donor region for FUE transplants is the back of the scalp.
- Once the harvested follicles have been grafted, they are implanted according to the new hair line to regenerate lasting hair growth in these problem areas.
- We recommend follow-up treatments for optimal results, further stimulating hair growth and hastening the recovery process. We offer alternative therapy as both a separate treatment as well as a follow up for patients who underwent an FUE hair transplant, further promoting and strengthening the implanted hairs.
Following your FUE hair transplant in Turkey, downtime is minimal. With this form of hair restoration being minimally invasive, the procedure will be carried out under local anaesthesia and has rapid recovery rates, allowing you to make the most of the stunning surroundings Turkey has to offer following your FUE hair transplant in Istanbul.

Am I Eligible for a FUE in Turkey?
There are different factors which determine whether a candidate is suitable for a FUE hair transplant. A consultation will establish whether FUE in Turkey is the best approach for you and your goals but generally there are two defining factors which determine suitability:
1. Cause of Baldness
Those dealing with hair loss in localised areas stemming from trauma, such as scarring or burns, tend to make the perfect candidates for a FUE hair transplant in Turkey. FUE also proves very successful for conditions including androgenic alopecia, traction alopecia or alopecia marginalis.
2. Donor Hair Density
With an FUE hair transplant in Istanbul taking hair from a donor site, having a dense donor site is essential. Normally, the hair from the side of the scalp has to be dense enough to be able to transfer it to the problem areas.
The Process of a FUE Transplant In Istanbul
When arriving for your FUE hair transplant in Istanbul, the team at Vera Clinic will ensure you are kept up to date and comfortable at every step of the way. Although the process does not lead to much down time, the duration of the FUE in Turkey can take about 8 to 10 hours due to the intricate nature of the treatment. The number of grafts needing to be extracted will impact the time but this will be discussed with you prior to your FUE.
Following Your FUE Hair Transplant in Turkey
Immediately after your FUE transplant, it is normal to experience a slight swelling or soreness in the areas which have been affected. This is completely normal and is nothing to worry about, fading out in a few days.
Following the procedure, we will provide you with an FUE transplant aftercare kit which contains plenty of information on managing your newly transplanted hairs to provide optimal results with minimal scarring. We also include necessary supplies such as shampoos, creams, antibacterial serums and pain-killers which have been carefully designed to be gentle on the scalp. Closely following our guidance after your FUE hair transplant will ensure you achieve the best possible results and keep healing time to a minimum.
Around 3-4 weeks following your FUE hair transplant, you should expect to see the transplanted hairs shedding. At this stage of the process, hair loss is completely normal and does not have an impact on the final results of the treatment, beginning to regrow in a couple of months. It can take up to a year for the optimal results of your FUE hair transplant in Istanbul to appear, but the majority should be visible within 4 to 6 months.
