FUE hair


about FUE

hair transplant

FUE Hair Transplant is a well-known but effective transplant method. By using microscopic instruments (maximum 0.55 to 0.70 mm in diameter), the hair follicles are removed one by one from the donor area and transplanted into the bald / balding zone. This is performed under local anesthesia and we work with Blade FUE on ICE Grafts. The wound is barely larger than a wound from an injection, so stitches are unnecessary. Some of the transplanted hairs will fallout, but after a few months the result will be clearly visible. The optimal result will be achieved after 7 to 12 months.

With the FUE method, the doctor removes the hair roots from the hair crown at the back of the head. This hair ring is also called the donor area and is provided with hairs that are insensitive to the hormone that causes hereditary hair loss. One by one, these hair roots are removed (extracted) with a tiny hollow needle of 0.6/0.8 mm. Small incisions are then made in the bald or balding area where the hairs are then replaced.

Step 1: Sign off

Before we start the treatment, the doctor will discuss with you which area we will focus on. The doctor will discuss the intended result with you, so that the treatment will exactly meet your wishes. The doctor determines how many Grafts are needed for the desired effect.

Step 2: Anesthesia

To ensure that the treatment is completely painless, the doctor will give you a local anesthetic. This means you will not experience any pain during the process. You will remain conscious during the procedure, so you can quickly return home (under supervision).

Step 3: Collect the follicles

The Grafts are removed from the safe donor area. Through years of experience, our doctors know how to select the optimal donor area for you. We select only the best quality Grafts that will not fall out for the rest of your life. The Grafts are stored in a special nutrient medium, which keeps them vital.

Step 4: Implanting grafts

In order to place hair roots, the doctor must open the channels correctly. The doctor then implants the hair roots into the opened canals of the recipient area. Our experienced doctor specializes in FUE hair transplantation and knows exactly how to achieve the best end result.

Step 5: Result

After the treatment, our doctor will explain in detail what aftercare is required for full recovery. We will go through all the steps with you and give you useful tips to take optimal care of your scalp. After the treatment, the hair first falls out, after which it starts to grow again. The treatment does not leave scars in the transplant area.


All of this is done with extreme precision, so that the transplanted hairs ultimately have a natural growth direction. All hair root groups (grafts) are transferred, or transplanted, to the desired location on the head without stitches.

The hair follicles on the hair crown at the back of the head are immune to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is responsible for baldness. The hair roots from the donor area (the hair ring) simply continue to grow in the place where they were transplanted. At the back of the head, the hair roots can produce hair again, but in many cases a tiny white spot (scar) will be visible.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can the results of my hair transplant treatment continue?

Androgenetic alopecia is caused by the male DHT hormone. Under the influence of this hormone, the hair growth process accelerates and the hair follicles will eventually be shriveled and destroyed. However, grafts that come from the donor area have different characteristics and a structure that makes them not sensitive to the DHT hormone. After transplantation into the balding areas, this unique structure is retained. Successfully transplanted hair follicles will continue to produce hair for the rest of your life

How quickly can I expect results?

You do need patience for this. A hair transplant is not a treatment with immediately visible results. Your skin will have healed for about 7 to 10 days, but the treated skin will be red and slightly swollen in the first days after the procedure. This will subside naturally, but itching and crusting will still occur. Only after 3 to 4 months will the first new hair growth become visible, although it will take 9 to 12 months before the final result is achieved.

How can I care for my (implanted) hair after the micro FUE hair transplant?

The general advice is to take it easy for the first few days and spare your head. This means no bumping, rubbing, exposing to the sun and/or sweating. It is also better to avoid sports, swimming and sauna visits shortly after the procedure. Depending on the work you perform, it is sometimes better to only return to work after 10 days. A hair surgeon can give you specific advice about this and by following the advice, you will enjoy a good result later.

Am I suitable for a hair transplant?

No matter how nice a permanent solution for hair loss sounds, a hair transplant is unfortunately not suitable for every form of hair loss. It is a suitable treatment for hereditary baldness, androgenetic alopecia. Temporary hair loss cannot be treated with a hair implant. Even if you are dealing with certain chronic conditions, active skin diseases, infections or autoimmune diseases, treatment may not always be advised. Your suitability will be examined and determined during an intake interview at the hair clinic.

Will I get a scar after the micro FUE hair transplant and what complications can arise?

No, you will not have any stitches or visible scars after the treatment. This is partly because we use very thin hollow needles during the treatment. Complications are rare with a hair transplant. Possible complications include: An infection. You will receive advice to keep the risk of this as small as possible, but an infection also rarely occurs. An allergic reaction to the local anesthetic, but this almost never occurs.
1. A 'numb' feeling in the area where the hair has been removed. This is annoying, but can't hurt. It will go away on its own after a few weeks.
2. Swelling of the forehead. This can especially happen if hair has been transplanted to the front of the head. Sometimes the face also swells. The swelling will subside naturally after a few days.
3. Ingrown hairs, but this will go away on its own.

When will my skin start to recover from the micro FUE treatment?

The healing process of your skin starts on day 1 after treatment. However, your skin will still remain sensitive in the first month.

How much does a hair transplant with the micro FUE treatment method cost?

The costs vary and depend on your wishes. If you choose FUE or a DHI, we can give an indication, but we can certainly guarantee that we can quote the correct price for an unlimited number of grafts. “Unique in the Netherlands”

Why have your treatment done at Istanbulhair?

We ISTANBULHAIR have specialized doctors and they ensure that you get your own hair back in bald and thin areas. The hair growth resulting from the hair transplant is permanent. This is because the hairs that have been placed there have a different genetic predisposition than the hairs that have fallen out. The donor hairs from the hair ring are immune to the hormone DHT that causes hair loss. We also use a new technique, the FUE Sapphire method. This method means that the channels in which the hair grafts are placed are made with a special instrument that has a Sapphire point.
