How does FUE work?
FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction and is a hair transplant method in which hair follicles are harvested from the donor area using a small hollow drill. Channels are then made in the receiving area, after which the hairs can be placed in the receiving area using specially designed tweezers.
Your wishes are central to the treatment, and the doctor will of course take your future hair growth process, nationality and ethnicity into account.
Finally, the collected grafts are implanted.
The benefits of FUE
More grafts in one session
Shorter treatment time
Very affordable rate
No stitches in the donor area

Very well organized from start to finish! Lieselotte personally came to my home to explain the entire procedure surrounding the hair transplant in Istanbul. I was walked through each specific step (visually) and was able to ask the necessary questions.
In Istanbul, everything was well organized; at the airport I was picked up by a driver and dropped off at the hotel which was otherwise fine (the hotel was clean, the staff helpful, and the food fine).
The next day I was driven to the university hospital for treatment. The doctor, Taner, received me there kindly and spoke very good English. The hairline was drawn and slightly corrected at my request. Although I had some doubts at first whether the hairline would look ‘natural’ enough, luckily this turned out to be the case afterwards. Taner also said that this may have been the most important criterion for him for the hair transplant. After drawing the hairline, some specialists removed the hairs from the donor area. The planting of the hairs was performed by Taner and another experienced specialist. The entire treatment was painless thanks to the anaesthetic, but it was quite a long session (~8 hours). The younger specialists spoke Turkish to each other at that time, which makes sense, but because you don’t understand it, in combination with the long seat, it was somewhat tiring for me.
After the treatment, the driver took me back to the hotel and both Taner and Lieselotte checked regularly via the app over the next few days how I was doing. After three days and a PCR test at the hotel, the driver took me back to the airport in the direction of Amsterdam. The recovery is now going well at home. Sleeping with the neck pillow is not ideal, but I don’t think there is much that can be done about that. We will have to wait and see what the result will be in the near future, but I have every confidence in it!
After having intake interviews at Dutch clinics, I came into contact with Lieselotte from Simson’s Hair (later Hair Clinic Wolf). It felt very good and familiar from the first moment. I got extensive information and I was immediately out. At Simson’s hair I went to do the hair transplant.
I have had contact with Lieselotte at least 30 times about anything and everything, all my questions were patiently answered.
July 30 I went to Turkey with a friend. From the beginning to the end I experienced the involvement and expertise of Lieselotte and the team in Turkey. The doctor Dr. Taner once again explained how the day would go and drew the hairline in consultation with me. My girlfriend was also involved and informed. The anesthetic was not pleasant, but I did not feel any pain at all. A long day, with lunch in between.
Hotel was very neat with very friendly staff and a nice spacious room. The food was good too. August 2 ablution and we were taken back to the airport. Even at home I still feel the involvement. I am so enthusiastic about Simson’s hair that I wish it on everyone who is thinking about a hair transplant.
Had a hair transplant a month ago through simson’s hair (later Hair Clinic Wolf). The intake with Lieselotte went very well and the contact afterwards was also great. There was a lot of contact and I could always ask questions.
All transport and facilities were super arranged and prepared, both in the Netherlands and Turkey. This includes instructions, taxi, hotel, etc. The treatment itself, led by Taner, went very well. Again clear instructions and put at ease (good English) and hardly had any pain. A month later, no problems at all and looking very good! Highly recommended for everyone!!
On the advice of via , and after already hearing a positive experience, I decided to go to this clinic myself and it was more than worth it.
Super good guidance, personal follow-up process and the Doctor himself and the team were very friendly and walk you through the treatment. Aftercare is still very involved and you can always reach someone if you have any questions or concerns. You will be taken care of before, during and after the treatment!
On December 11, 2020 a hair transplant was done at simsons hair, later Hair Clinic Wolf. From the consultation to the aftercare, everything was perfectly arranged. Lieselotte knows what she is talking about and is clear and honest, the doctor in Turkey (Dr Taner) and his team are very friendly and work professionally. Now 7 months later and more than satisfied with the recovery and the process. Definitely recommended if you are looking for an honest and professional clinic for a hair transplant.

Top service. From transport in Turkey to English-speaking guidance in the clinic, everything is arranged down to the last detail. In particular, big compliments for the possibility of easily accessible contact with Lieselotte. I could go to her with all my questions and so I never felt insecure for a moment. Highly recommended!
Frequently Asked Questions
what is fue and how does it work?
FUE is a hair transplant method in which hair follicles are harvested from the donor area using a small hollow drill. Channels are then made in the receiving area, after which the hairs can be placed in the receiving area using specially designed tweezers.
What is the difference between the FUT and FUE technique?
The big advantage of the FUE technique over the outdated FUT technique has to do with the scar. With the FUT technique, a strip is removed from your scalp, leaving a scar on your donor area. Fortunately, this is not the case with the FUE technique, so Hair Clinic Wolf has chosen to no longer offer the FUT technique.
What is the difference with DHI?
The DHI method uses implant pins (Choi pins). The graft is harvested in the same manner, however, upon placement, the graft is transplanted directly into the scalp.
What are the advantages of FUE?
The treatment is less time consuming than DHI, so more grafts can be implanted and the treatment is cheaper.
What are the disadvantages of FUE?
Because channels are made, a less high density can be achieved compared to the DHI method. Furthermore, the recovery process is longer and your scalp needs to be shaved.
