Turkey is particularly well known for its Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplantation method. In fact, Turkey is considered one of the pioneers of this technique. Although FUE takes 3-4 hours to complete, it is the preferred method now because the final result is much more natural-looking than other methods, such as Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). The FUT method is known to leave a linear scar at the back of the head, while FUE does not leave any noticeable scarring.
