The FUE (follicular unit extraction) is one of the most employed techniques for hair transplant procedures in Turkey. It is one of the safest and most cost-effective procedures and it renders some of the best results. However, like any other surgical procedure, it implies certain side effects, such as the swelling of the transplanted area once the hair transplantation has ended.

In our hair transplant clinic in Turkey, our surgeons have developed various protocols meant to minimize the immediate effects of an FUE procedure.

In order to better understand how to minimize the effects of an FUE hair transplant, our surgeons will first explain to patients what to expect after the operation is finished. The common effects of an FUE transplant imply:

Hair transplants can also have other side effects, however in our modern hair transplant clinic in Istanbul can guide patients in overcoming them by offering the best care.
