How is FUE Hair Transplant Technique applied?

Planning and Consultation

Our experts determine the hairline that suits you the best, the number of grafts and the application plan. At this stage, it will be shown to you by our hairline specialist, which will be the most natural for you. The operation is started by making a number planning according to the number of grafts that can be taken from your donor area. You can ask all your questions before the procedure at this stage.


After the consultation is over, the first step is to take blood from you and check if there is any disease in your blood. If you have HIV-like illness, it is recommended that you notify in advance.

Preparation and Local Anesthesia

The area of application is sterilized, and local anesthesia is applied to prevent you from feeling any pain. Local anesthesia is performed by injecting the active substance to the relevant areas by an ultra-fine tip needle. For those who are afraid of needle, there is a very easy and painless alternative. It ensures that the active substance penetrates the skin painlessly thanks to a pressured spraying process, we apply the needle required for anesthesia after that area becomes numb. In this way, you don’t feel any pain.

of Grafts

We usually extract the grafts from the area where the hair is the most abundant and strong, that is the back of head situated between two ears. You don’t feel anything because this area is completely numb. If we need more grafts, we can extract grafts from the chest or from under the chin (applicable for men). The FUE Technique where the grafts are extracted one by one provides us with this possibility in a highly aesthetic way.


At this stage where the FUE Sapphire Technique is activated and shows its difference, we open micro channels with sapphire tips in the direction of natural hair over the area where the grafts will be transplanted. Since you are under local anesthesia, you don’t feel anything during this process.

Transplantation Application

We transplant the grafts we extract with the most suitable density and angle over the designated area.

Post-Application Process

One or two days after operation, first washing process is conducted in our clinic by a team of experts. During the washing process, we inform you about how to wash your hair. We conduct exuviating wash 10 days after the application.


In this process, we recommend you to take vitamin supplements as well as ozone oil treatment. We suggest using ozonated oil treatment and vitamin supplement products within this process. During the 12-18 months of post-application process, we remain in communication with our guests, we provide the required support following all phases.
