FUE Graft Quality

FUE Graft Quality

Hair transplants are not complicated procedures; however, they require care, finesse and respecting all the steps in the process. This is because a hair transplant carried out in our modern clinic in Turkey implies several steps, one of the most important ones being the harvesting of the hair follicles, also known as grafts.

Hair grafts are harvested through the follicular unit extraction, or FUE, method. The follicles must be of good quality in order for the hair transplant to succeed. Below, our hair transplant surgeons in Turkey explain why the quality of the grafts is very important.

Using modern techniques will ensure the graft quality in Turkey

The FUE method is currently the most modern hair transplant technique. It is also the safest way of harvesting healthy, therefore quality grafts which can then be securely implanted into the balding areas of the scalp.

In order for patients to understand how the FUE works and how quality grafts are harvested, our hair transplant specialists in Istanbul explain the steps:

  •           the consult is mandatory, as the surgeon will carefully evaluate the health of the grafts;
  •           the FUE method implies shaving the donor area and harvesting the grafts to be implanted;
  •           the hair follicles are collected one-by-one, which will ensure the quality of the grafts;
  •           once they are implanted, the surgeon will monitor how the transplanted hair grows.

It usually takes about 10 days to see the first results of a hair transplant in Turkey.

How are quality grafts chosen?

According to our surgeons in Turkey, the quality of grafts is only a part of a hair transplant. The quality of a graft usually consists in examining the scalp and matching the hair follicles from the donor area with those on the recipient area, in order to make sure the transplanted grafts will survive.

The harvesting of the follicles must be done very carefully in order to obtain viable grafts, as they represent live tissue which must be preserved until they are transplanted. This is also why a hair transplantation procedure can take from several hours to even a day or two.

The quality of the grafts can also be one of the elements that influence the overall hair transplant price in Turkey. What this means is that, if the patient needs more grafts, the final costs will be understandably higher. Our team will do their best to estimate the costs based on an initial evaluation. You can always talk to us beforehand, and reach out to our experts for a first consultation.
