Follicular Unit Extraction – abbreviated: FUE – is an extremely safe and effective method of hair transplant, that functions completely without any scalpels. The specialist for hair transplant, Dr. Abdul-Aziz Balwi, in one such operation extracts hairs from healthy skin area of the head with the help of an extraction needle and then implants them in the bald area. By this way, there are no scars, and there is no need for an after-treatment. The hairs transplanted in such a way further grow regularly.
In contrast to other European countries, the FUE method can be conducted up to around 70 percent cheaper in Turkey. This price difference is based singly and just in light of the lower living expenses. The quality of the conducted operation as well as its results are convincing all round and correspond to the highest international standards.
Besides the FUE method, the specialist practitioner for hair transplant, Dr. Abdulaziz Balwi, also offers PRP treatments. In this, blood previously extracted and separated into thrombocytes and leukocytes is injected in the patients’ bald patches on the head, whereby the hair growth will be induced. Furthermore, beard transplants, as well as scar corrections after a conventional hair transplant (Follicular Unit Transplantation – FUT) can be conducted at the hospital.

The importance of hair
Hair is an expression of the personality and identity for most people. Beautiful, full and glamorous hair also represent a sensual beauty image that catches the eye and allows artful changes.
Seen from a medical perspective, hair is dead tissue that can be painlessly cut and processed. The distribution and the growth of hair are attached to the function of the endocrine glands. They grow from hair follicles which are known as hair roots. To each root are many sebaceous glands that make and secrete sebum. In this way, the hair maintains their natural shine.
Many diseases can have a more or less severe hair loss result. Thereby, the hairs generally fall diffuse or disappear entirely in circular, sharply demarcated areas. But even without morbid suffering, many people fall already heavily in young hair. This situation is very fatal, especially in the prime of life and also constitutes an enormous psychological stress, which can affect the whole life massively.
With a hair transplant in Turkey, affected people can be helped individually because such treatments are done very successfully for many years there.
