Among different hair transplant methods, FUE hair transplant is one of the most popular procedures in the world. If you are suffering from hair loss and looking to find a long-lasting solution you might want to explore the most reliable option.
The life cycle of hair follicles can be different for everyone depending on genetics and external factors such as stress. As you get older, these follicles gradually lose their regrowth ability to grow hair leading to a shortened regrowth cycle and eventual hair loss. FUE hair transplant is the most commonly utilised solution to hair loss.
What is an FUE hair transplant?
FUE hair transplant method was developed to replace the traditional follicular unit transplantation (FUT) method which involves the transplantation of an entire piece of skin and leads to an unauthentic “hair plug” look. FUE hair transplant is an advanced hair transplant procedure leading to long-lasting and natural looking results. Opting for an FUE hair transplant can give you a healthy hairline back with minimal side effects. FUE hair transplant involves the extraction and allocation of individual hair follicles without disrupting the natural form of your hair. This procedure reduces the chances of scarring and discomfort after the transplant since it requires no cuts and stitches. Our experienced surgeons implement this elegant procedure with utmost attention to detail, so that the downtime and side effects are minimal.
If you suffer from thinning hair or balding but still have some healthy hair for transplantation, even if you appear bald, you will qualify for an FUE hair transplant. Your healthy hair follicles are still capable of hair regrowth, and they will be relocated to the desired area to regain a healthy looking hairline.
How does an FUE hair transplant process work?
You might be wondering what you should expect once you decide to get an FUE hair transplant. The entire process is carried out under local anaesthesia and involves three simple steps, after you have decided on the desired hairline with your surgeon.
First, your surgeon will prepare the donor area by applying local anaesthesia and shaving down the hair. Depending on the specifics of your condition, the hairs around the transplantation area might also be shaved.
Then, the grafts containing individual hair follicles will be harvested from the healthy donor area by using a punch tool or a similar manual surgical instrument. These harvested grafts are collected in an appropriate sterile environment for the relocation process. Your surgeon will prepare the transplantation area for implementation by creating microchannels on the scalp using a needle or a tiny sharp tool. Then they will carefully implant the hair follicles into these channels. This procedure is extremely important to achieve a natural hair look. After these three simple steps, your surgeon will clean and bandage the area to protect it from external factors.
Depending on your specific condition and number of grafts, you may need to complete the FUE hair transplant process in multiple sessions.
How long does it take for FUE hair to grow?
After your procedure, you need to follow your surgeon’s directions on aftercare to get the maximum effect from the surgery. Depending on your body’s reaction to the treatment, the hair will start to grow back in approximately 3–4 months. After this period, you will start to see the renewed growth and healthy, natural hairline that you have been dreaming of. Read more about Hair Transplant Recovery Timeline.
