FUE Technique – Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is an extremely famous hair transplant method that involves the use of a tiny, round punch for extracting follicular units from the bald donor areas of patients, one by one. Afterwards, the follicular unit grafts are transplanted into the balding patches of a patient. FUE, similar to FUT hair transplant in Turkey, comes with a number of advantages that patients interested in the process should be familiar with.
The process is not as invasive as Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). There is no need to remove or dissect any strip of scalp that bears the follicular units. FUE grafts or two-layer suture is used to close the wound, after which the tissues immediately surrounding the wound are individually extracted with the help of 0.6 – 1.0 mm punches. There is no need to close any post-extraction wounds.

The operation does not lead to “linear scar” that is related to FUT process. Many qualified hair transplants in Turkey surgeons can use state of the art methods like the trichophytic closure to create “strip scars” that cannot be virtually spotted. Thus, you can wear your hair cropped or shortly after this surgery. Although this is not an entirely scar-less technique, the small dots can be concealed when the operation is properly carried out.

As the process is less invasive, you can heal and recover faster. There is no need to wait for stitches, wounds or staples to heal, and concerns about putting the healing area under no tension for some time. You can experience minimal discomfort and pain at the donor site, and sleep better after hair transplant at SHIFT Hair Transplant. It is possible to return to work and everyday activities much faster. You can even return to weightlifting and other strenuous exercise activities that are prohibited for up to three months after strip surgery or FUT.
With FUE, extraction of follicular units is possible from varied and wide regions of the body and scalp. This involves harvesting hair follicular units from different areas of the legs, arms, beard, chest, nape, scalp and various other spots on the body where proper donor hair is absent.
With FUE hair restoration, surgeons at SHIFT Hair Transplant can also cherry pick the best follicular units for transplantation purposes. This involves spotting, separating and individually choosing single-haired, finer follicular units for the vital hairline regions.

DHI Hair Transplant – It is common to associate hair loss with advancing age. By the time men turn 50, at least half of the male population loses its hair to some degree – whether in the form of a thinning top or a receding hairline. This is also the time of life when men are just reaching the peak of their personal, social and professional lives, and looking older is the last thing that they want. Direct Hair Implantation or DHI is an effective, permanent and safe hair loss treatment. Find out how it is performed in top hair centres such as SHIFT Hair Transplant.
Choi implanter and how it implants the graft.
The treatment involves the use of a specialized tool for the removal of healthy hair follicles in a safe way. This ensures that the follicles and the adjoining scalp suffer the least damage. Surgeons keep the follicles in a solution, which gives them the longest lifespan while outside the body. Another specialized tool, known as the DHI implanter or Choi Implanter, is used for controlling the direction, depth and angle of the implant so that new hairs grow in a natural way. With DHI Hair Transplant in Turkey, there are no scars or stitches and you can recover faster.
Conducted under a local anaesthetic
The entire process is conducted under the effects of a local anaesthetic. Based on how large the treatment area is, it can comprise of just one session that can last as long as 8 hours or for a number of sessions over a couple of days. Although patients can return to work the next day, most of them choose to take leave for 7 days to recover optimally. The sterile saline solution should be used to moisten the area. While on antibiotic courses for 7 days, patients cannot smoke or drink.

During DHI Hair Transplant in Turkey, one by one the hair follicles are directly implanted to the area that is thinning and needs cover. The process involves two stages, the Extraction Phase and the Placement Phase. This is a minimally invasive technique, which involves no pain and ensures very fast recovery.
When carried out by experts in top centres like SHIFT Hair Transplant, the results are as natural as possible. With complete control of the angle of placement, depth and direction of every graft, the results are 100% natural. The hair that is implanted in the area will grow for the rest of your life, and never fall out. You can get permanent results.

Smart-Selection Method – A full head of hair is one of the most important physical assets for any human being. Just as it is the case with the rest of the body, it is important to take good care of hair. Many men and women are facing hair loss problems today, and from a very early age – due to various causes such as poor diet, lack of physical activity, insufficient sleep or rest and a generally unhealthy lifestyle. Hereditary causes are also responsible for many cases of balding and hair thinning. This makes hair transplant in Turkey so important. Find out why it is important to separate single, double, tripled and quadrupled haired grafts. Smart-Selection Method
Some grafts may contain single hair in it, other may have 2 to 4 hairs.
Follicular units can be typically found in single, double, tripled or quadrupled graft groupings. When implanted, this is the way they usually grow. Sometimes, however, surgeons tend to “split” the bigger grafts to create single units for achieving a more refined hairline. Surgeons begin by the extraction of hair that they use during the latter part of the session. Once hair is extracted, they are separated by staffs into triple, double or single hair piles. After this, incisions are created in the recipient areas where hairs are supposed to be grafted.
In some cases, more than hair follicular units have to be dissected for making single hair grafts, particularly while making a new hairline. In all transplant techniques, as conducted in reputed hair restoration clinics such as SHIFT Hair Transplant, hair is moved in natural clusters – whether they are single, double, triple or quadruple grafts. However, the hair follicles are those that are transplanted in actuality. In case 3- 4 hair follicles are transplanted into a single recipient area; 3 hairs are supposed to appear at the end of the cycle. This method is called Smart-Selection and it got the name by SHIFT Hair Transplant medical team. Smart-Selection Method
When it comes to dealing with acute cases of baldness, covering more area, more than one graft or micro-grafts can be needed. As these are transplanted and harvested in more than one group, the whole process might not be too challenging like the single graft transplantation. The process is also more cost-effective as a result.
There is just one disadvantage with micro-grafts, as the scalp can look patched and patients are unable to wear too short with this technique. However, the surgery time is quicker with this kind of hair graft – given that it is possible to transplant more hair follicles in just one session.
Perkutan Technique also known as Percutaneous Technique, is a path-breaking procedure for hair follicle implantation with a smooth and safe technique. This method helps open up pores in the spots that have to be cultivated with a special pen consisting of a small needle that can secure the tiny pores that have the same size as the bulb that has to be implanted, after which the extracted bulbs are laid into the pores. Find out about some of the main advantages of using the Perkutan Technique in Turkey for hair transplant.

This type of surgery does not involve any incisions, and the scalp does not have any scars or possibly only minimal. The time to heal and pain associated with the process are reduced as much as possible. The process is safe and healing is quick. The healing time is reduced to a minimum. The scarring that occurs for a short time after Percutaneous technique in Turkey for hair transplant happens to be lighter than experienced in various other techniques. This is mainly because special percutaneous needles are used to open up the pores rather than a medical blade.
In this method, there is no need to shorten the hair. When the treatment is only carried out by certified specialists, such as in specialized clinics such as SHIFT Hair Transplant, you can expect faster results and can go on with your regular lifestyle, not being embarrassed to attend social dos, functions and events.
This kind of treatment can give you natural hair results, and you can find growing at a rapid rate – just as it is the case with a healthy scalp. The Percutaneous technique ensures high volume and thickness of hair as well as clean root extraction. You can enjoy higher graft density, up to 55 per cm of scalp area.
The process is compatible with the Follicles Unit Extraction (FUE) technique. When combined with FUE, the Perkutan technique can help in controlling of hair orientation, very natural looking hair, and the potential to transplant over 4,000 grafts in a single session at SHIFT Hair Transplant and other hair loss treatment facilities. The orientation of hair will be controlled. The direction of growth and shape of hair implantation can be determined smoothly and easily. In this technique, hair is cultured in a special manner.
Manual FUE Hair Transplant is a type of hair transplant in Turkey that makes it possible for surgeons to extract as many as 2500 grafts in just a few hours without causing damage to the grafts. As it reduces the time for grafts to stay outside the patients’ body, it offers better results. Find out how it is performed.
The skin and hair of the patient are inspected and measured. Surgeons in top centres like SHIFT Hair Transplant determine the sites with original single hair follicles for surgeries where they want to operate on the front line. They generally prefer grafts from the parietal and temporal regions, to ensure that the front line looks natural and aesthetic. As the hair features, skin type and head shape differ across patients, hair angles and direction can be different. As follicular units happen to be very delicate, the Manual FUE Technique is used.
For this operation, surgeons usually start working on the top of the head or the vertex and the middle line. They generally take grafts from the occipital region as the density and thickness of hairs is higher in this area. Local anaesthesia is first applied to the area from where hairs are extracted, and the follicles are pulled out of the skin with polarized light loop and manual punch. Local anaesthesia is injected into the recipient site prior to the incisions.
After the grafts are pulled out of extracted from the skin, they are kept in a solution combining ATP and hypotermosol, so as to keep them healthy and alive. The solution works in the preservation of the grafts.
As per the planning prior to the operations, surgeons in SHIFT Hair Transplant classify the grafts. Until they are implanted, based on their specific features, they are preserved at 4 degrees Celsius. The main objective of doing so is to maintain the integrity of the graft tissues. The waiting time of the grafts out of the skin is restricted to a minimum.
The lateral slit technique is used to make the incisions in this hair transplant in Turkey, according to the natural hair angle and directions of the patient.
Following the incision, the grafts are finally implanted in the incised region as per plan. The primary aim is to ensure a homogeneous and natural result. It is essential to use every spot on the donor site, to ensure homogeneity on the donor area as well as on the recipient.
