What is a FUE Hair Transplant?
FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction and is a minimally invasive treatment. This technique is favourable due to the minimal downtime and less obvious detection at the donor site. The FUE method requires skill and masterful precision which is why we work with carefully selected, experienced doctors within this field.
How does FUE work?
The doctor will remove follicles from regions containing the sufficient number of hair strands, usually found at the back of the neck or sides of the head. The hair follicles are removed at the root by a medical extraction tool (which measures less than 1mm in diameter) and then transplanted to the required area of the scalp where the thinning or balding has occurred. The harvested follicles are then implanted into the necessary areas using a stereomicroscope. The surgeons take great care in ensuring that all the hairs are implanted at the same angle of the current hair growth in healthy regions. It is done this way so post treatment the new hairs grow unnoticeably.
Is FUE Hair Transplant right for me?
You will have a full consultation to establish if FUE is the most suitable treatment for you.
Generally, we class suitable candidates as those with healthy hair growth at the back and sides of the head. Since it is important to collect a sufficient number of follicles to perform the hair transplant. Texture, colour and curl in your hair are all considered before recommending this treatment so that you have the highest chance of achieving your desired goal.
Is it painful?
FUE is performed under local anaesthetic and it is minimally invasive so there is minimal discomfort during the procedure. Once complete, there may be mild discomfort whilst you heal which will typically last a week at most.
How much does it cost?
Since every procedure is unique the fee is discussed upon consultation. Please contact us to discuss this further.
What will my results look like?
The doctors and surgeons we use, specialise in FUE hair transplants and they deliver results which appear natural since the technique is so very precisely executed ensuring that the implanted follicles match the angle and direction of the surrounding hairs, providing a natural blend with the existing hairline on completion. This is all done with minimal downtime which always amazes our clients!
