The Hair Transplant FUE Clinic (HTFC) in Ankara and Istanbul – Turkey exclusively performs FUE Hair Transplant
Beauty-travel businesses are currently dominating market activities in foreign countries such as Turkey due to a constantly rising demand for plastic surgeries at lowest rates. The wide spectrum of plastic surgeries achive strong attraction to patients looking for low-cost offers abroad. As a matter of fact numerous travel agencies as well as low-prizing clinics are now flooding the market while providing services, which do not regularly meet the expectations of their patients since they have only little knowledge, skills and experience
After his career as a plastic surgeon Dr. Krem is exclusively performing FUE hair transplants since 2002. Based on specialization and constant training Dr. Krem successfully achieves natural outcomes on patients with FUE, featuring the latest state-of-the-art method for hair transplant. As FUE hair transplant asks for full attention of the hair surgeon Dr. Krem is dedicating his entire diligence and experience to the hair restoration process only and refuses to offer a further spectrum of plastic surgery in his clinic. Dr. Krem and the entire team are fully convinced that patients of the clinic may only benefit from the high level of their exclusive services when concentrating on hair transplant only.
FUT – Strip Harvesting / Follicular Unit Transplant / Strip Surgery vs. modern FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)
As FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) features the highest standard and state-of-the-art method for hair transplant Dr. Krem has refused to use outdated techniques such as Strip Surgery (Strip Harvesting – FUT – Follicular Unit Transplant) for the hair restoration process. While still being practized at clinics around the world strip harvesting (strip surgery – FUT) has become obsolete since minimally invasive methods for hair transplant such as FUE have been proven to be more effective and less harmful to patients.
Despite some impressive success of the strip technique (FUT) on patients with progressive balding in the past the common practice of FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) has caused a painful recovery time and embarrassing moments due to a linear scar being left behind. With FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) a strip of tissue will be cut out from the back scalp. It will later be divided into the grafts (hair follicles) by the use of a microscope (isolating the grafts) to be prepared for the transition to the balding area. The wound at the back side of the scalp will then be sutured or stapled leaving a linear scar behind. As this may often appear embarrassing to patients strip harvesting has become more and more outpaced by the minimally invasive FUE-method (Follicular Unit Extraction) during the last years. Furthermore a number of hair follices will be damaged via strip technique since the hair surgeon has to cut out a whole tissue from the scalp via blade or scalpel and will not be able to extract single follicles.
Patients undergoing a hair transplant with strip harvesting / strip transplant (FUT) will have to accept a longer recovery time during which the laxity / elasticity of the skin is exposed to a higher level of stress. After every strip surgery (FUT – Follicular Unit Transplant) a long linear scar at the back of the scalp will be left behind causing great embarrassment and emotional distress. Patients undergoing a hair transplant via FUT (strip technique) will have to wear their hair longer post transplant to cover the scar and disguise the effects of the surgery.
As progress and technology allow for minimally invasive hair transplant methods Dr. Krem has decided to exclusively perfom FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) as the latest state-of-the-art method for hair transplant to avoid harmful and embarrassing effects and achieve more natural results on patients.
