Hair FUE Transplant

For many men and women hair loss (alopecia) or thinning hair can result in a loss of self-confidence and cause anxiety, depression, and other psychological unease. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a minimally-invasive hair transplant procedure available to both men and women who suffer from hair loss due to pattern balding, thinning, or other causes.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a hair loss treatment that involves extracting or “harvesting” individual hair follicles from the back of the head or other parts of the body – places such as the chest or back – for transplantation. FUE differs from other methods of surgical hair restoration because it is less invasive. It does not produce one long linear scar, but rather many tiny scars in the donor area, which are hard to detect.

This technique is ideal for those who wish to wear their hair very short or those whose scalp is too tight for strip harvesting. It can also be used in selected patients with traditional strip surgery for maximum hair cover. FUE may not be suitable for patients who have very advanced hair loss.

What does the procedure involve?
FUE is generally performed under a local anaesthetic and does not require a hospital stay. In some cases, the treatment area may require extensive shaving to prepare for transplantation. More than one treatment session may be necessary to achieve optimal results, especially for patients with large treatment areas. Recovery time is minimal, and many patients choose to return to work within 1-2 days of treatment.
How is the procedure performed?
Prior to your procedure, a local anaesthesia will be administered. Your cosmetic surgeon will remove small groups of hair (follicular units) from a donor site on your body (usually the back of the scalp). Using tiny circular incisions, the donor tissue is harvested through a series of punches. The donor hairs are then extracted one-by-one from within the punch area and are either used intact or divided microscopically into smaller units for transplantation. Because incision sites are so small, stitches are not necessary.
How long does the procedure take?
Each treatment session lasts between 4 and 8 hours. The length of your treatment will depend on the size of the treatment area. More than one treatment session is likely to reach optimal results.
Is it painful?
In comparison to other hair loss treatments, FUE is quicker and less painful. Most patients experience little or no discomfort during their procedure. Minor pain or discomfort may be present during the initial phases of recovery. Medication is often prescribed to eliminate discomfort.
What happens afterwards?
Most patients are able to resume work and other normal activities within a few days of surgery. During the first 1-2 weeks of recovery, tiny scabs will begin to form at the treatment site(s). It will take two or more weeks before your head starts to look normal. Direct shower pressure and hair drying should be avoided during this time. Your surgeon will provide you with specific aftercare and hygiene instructions.
When will I see the final result?
The transplanted hair during your procedure will shed during the healing process; the roots will remain intact. These roots will remain dormant for up to four months, after which the new hair follicles will begin to develop. It may take 4-6 months before final results are present, and more than one treatment is often needed to achieve final results.
