Content overseen by Doctor Costin Pasnicu who has over 7 years of experience in the medical field and has performed numerous successful surgeries. He graduated from the renowned University of Medicine and Pharmacy "Carol Davila" Bucharest.

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.
 

The most common effects of an FUE transplant in Turkey


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:
 
  •           swelling of both the donor area and the recipient area, which can differ from patient to patient;
  •           scarring is another side effect, especially in the recipient area of the patient;
  •           scabbing is also quite common when undergoing a hair transplant in Turkey;
  •           folliculitis, which is an infection of the hair follicle can also occur after a hair transplant.

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.
 

How to treat the side effects of an FUE transplant in Turkey


Even if the FUE method is one of the newest and safest hair transplant procedure, it still implies some side effects which can be successfully treated by our surgeons in Turkey. In order to help patients, they will carefully monitor the patient and provide them with medication in order to minimize swelling of the donor and recipient area, which is the first side effect of an FUE hair transplant.
When it comes to scarring and scabbing, these can be minimized by applying various types of ointments and creams. These may contain antibiotics, case in which they will also help in preventing folliculitis.

Another side effect of a hair transplant is itching, however, in this case, our doctors can only recommend patience.

The first results of a hair transplant can be seen in approximately 10 days after the procedure and this is also when the side effects will start to disappear.
