A lot of hair transplant procedures are accomplished by using the Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) method to relieve hair loss conditions. Being one of the most popular treatments in the cosmetic and hair loss restoration methods, FUT in Turkey is an advanced technique that allows the hair to grow in the bald zones more effectively and less invasively. 

In FUT, the physician utilizes microscopic dissection to divide these follicular units in a manner that is extremely similar to the natural hair growth. This method has become acknowledged by numerous personalities in the hair restoration field as an advanced hair restoration technique suitable for both men and women who suffer from pattern alopecia.

Some specialists refer to the FUT method as the “gold standard” of the hair transplant surgery in Istanbul. The experienced and talented surgeon who undertakes this type of operation is extremely familiar with the different harvesting techniques.

The FUT harvesting technique generates a whole graft that is surrounded by plenty of healthy tissue around to sustain it during the transplantation procedure. Since every graft is attentively sectioned by hand with the use of a microscope, the graft is not transected and the supporting tissues are untouched.

All these facts ensure the survival of the grafts that are transplanted and eventually lead to a successful, natural looking result.

Definition of FUT in Turkey

FUT, also known as the donor strip method, consists of extracting a large piece from the scalp from the back of the head, creating thousands of naturally growing follicular unit groups (generally referred to as grafts). These grafts are then implanted into the bald zones of the scalp with small incisions. If properly effectuated, these incisions confer the transplanted hair follicles direction, angle, spacing, and depth so that the doctor can form and generate a hairline that looks natural.

Advantages of FUT in Turkey

There are many advantages to using the FUT method for hair transplantation in Turkey. Some of these are:
