FUE Hair Implantation Recovery Time

It takes approximately 10 days to 14 days to recover after the procedure. You should avoid strenuous activity for at least 4 weeks. You will start to notice new hair growth after 3 months. Expect to experience complete recovery 12 – 15 months after the procedure. 

You can return to work 3 days after the procedure; you will notice the swelling reduces during these days. 

Avoid brushing your hair for at least 3 weeks, and don't wash your hair for the first 3 days. Follow your doctor's instructions to speed up your recovery. 

How is The FUE Hair Transplant Procedure Performed?

Your surgeon will administrate local anesthesia, and then they will extract hair grafts and place them in a container filled with a unique solution that helps keep the grafts alive.

The surgeon will begin to make incisions on the recipient area using a microblade and 0.6 to 1.0 mm special micro punches.

Hair grafts are inserted into the recipient area soon after the incisions are made. Hair transplant surgery can take between 4 and 8 hours and is performed on the same day.

Your surgeon might offer PRP treatment (Platelet-Rich Plasma) to accelerate the healing process. PRP treatment is performed during the transplantation or after the grafts are implanted.  

Here are the main steps the procedure involves:


  • Assessment: Determining the donor and recipient areas through a detailed evaluation.


  • Shaving: The donor area (usually the back of the scalp) is shaved.
  • Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is applied to minimize discomfort.


  • Harvesting Hair Follicles: Individual hair follicles are harvested from the donor area using a specialized tool that makes tiny circular incisions around each follicular unit, which are then extracted.

Recipient Site Preparation:

  • Creating Receptor Sites: Tiny incisions are made in the recipient area to create sites to place the harvested follicles.


  • Transplanting Hair Follicles: The harvested follicles are then transplanted into the incisions in the recipient area.


  • Healing: The tiny wounds in the donor and recipient areas are left to heal naturally; they generally heal quickly and leave minimal scars.

Post-operative Care:

  • Guidelines: Following the surgeon's guidelines for post-operative care to foster proper healing and optimal results.


  • Downtime: Limited downtime, with many individuals returning to non-strenuous activities within a few days.


  • Initial Growth: Initial hair growth in 3-4 months.
  • Full Results: Full results typically visible in about 12-18 months.

The procedure aims to create a natural-looking hairline with fuller hair density while minimizing scarring and maximizing the survival rate of the transplanted hair follicles. Consult with a healthcare provider for personalized medical advice.

What is a FUT Hair Transplant?

FUT, or Follicular Unit Transplantation, is a hair transplant technique designed to combat hair loss. It's a popular procedure for individuals experiencing significant hair thinning or balding seeking a permanent solution. 

In FUT, a strip of scalp with healthy hair follicles is surgically removed from a donor area, typically the back of the head, where hair is more resistant to balding. These follicles are then meticulously dissected into individual units and transplanted into the balding areas. 

FUT Hair Transplant Cost In Turkey 

FUT hair transplant prices in Turkey range from €2500 - €3500. But, some factors increase the treatment price, like the location of the clinics, the surgeon's experience, the technique used, and the type of treatment.

How is FUT Hair Surgery Performed?

Your surgeon will administer the local anesthesia. Then, your surgeon will remove a strip of hair from the donor area.

The donor area where a strip of hair is extracted is sutured. This process usually leaves a linear scar on your head. But the scar won't be visible; it is underneath the hair.

The extracted donor strip will then be cut into individual follicular units using a microscopic dissection. Your surgeon will then create incisions –or canal openings – on the recipient area where the follicular graft units will be implemented.

After the transplant, your surgeon gently applies a disinfection solution to the scalp. The donor area will be dressed using bandages.

FUT Hair Transplant Success Rate 

FUT Hair Transplant procedure has a success rate of 90-95%.

What Should I Expect After The Surgery?

  • You can have scabs and facial swelling in the recipient area for the first few days. This is natural during the recovery period. 
  • After 10 or 14 days, the stitches around the donor area will be removed.
  • Expect some transplanted hair to fall off in the first two months.
  • Expect to see your new hair grow from four to ten months.
  • Typically, the new hair will thicken after 10 to 15 months.
