FUE hair transplantation

FUE hair transplantation

FUE hair transplantationHuman hair consists of small groups of single hairs. Nowadays, these natural clusters (follicular units) may be transplanted one by one as well. Thus the result will be really natural!

The name of the method is FUE, i.e. follicular unit extraction. Our doctor transplants clusters of best quality hair bulbs that will grow thick, healthy hair on the receiving site. In one to three sessions 1200-6000 single hairs can be moved. 

The ideal graft, i.e. the tissue to be transplanted contains a totally healthy follicular unit with 1-4 bulbs. The implanted bulbs integrate into the skin and within the first 2 months, as single hairs fall out, in 95% of the cases, new hair will start to grow.

The new single hairs are thicker, darker, therefore they also cover excellently. The new single hairs will appear after the third month. By the end of the first 6 months, the change will be significant and the new hair will continuously be thicker and thicker by the end of the first year.

Am I a good candidate for FUE hair transplant?
If you are healthy, suffering from androgenic alopecia only, the answer is: yes.

On most people’s heads, strong, hormonally resistant hair can be found that may be transplanted onto the most problematic sites achieving good results.

Every 1000 single hairs – that were properly implanted – will produce a visible difference within one year compared to the original state.

Should you be interested in how many single hairs would we implant in your specific case and in the result that can be expected, PLEASE SEND US SOME PHOTOS AND WE WILL BE PLEASED TO ADVISE YOU. 

What is a graft?

Each graft is an individual hair follicle, or can include up to 4 hair strands. Hairs can be of different size and width so the grafts must be matched to ensure even hair growth.

What is a hair strand?

Hair strands are single hairs. On one session (1-3 days) 1200-1600 hairs can be moved (approx. 500-700 grafts).

FUE hair removal techniques

Follicular hair units are removed using a 0.5-1 mm circular scalpel, with a so-called perforation technique. The procedure can be performed in two ways: manually or using an automated hair removal technique. The difference between the two is that the manual procedure requires the hair transplant surgeon to turn the circular scalpel to remove the required hair units, whilst using the automated method,  a motor in an actual machine will turn the scalpel. Although the automated technique will make the treatment session shorter, it can only be used for particular cases and only after the unique parameters of the client have been determined (e.g. suitability of the donor area, the angle of hair growth). The manual extraction provides a much more precise removal from a more challenging donor area.  Accordingly, our clinic selects which technique is  most suitable for each individual client.
