WHAT IS A FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT?
This minimally invasive hair transplantation consists of removing healthy hair follicles one at a time from the donor area from the back of the head (that are resistant to hair loss) before being reinserted into the recipient area (spots lacking hair). A small, specialised punch device tool (0.6-1.0 mm diameter) is used to extract the hairs.
Hair regrowth is almost guaranteed long-term, as FUE hair transplant boast 92%-98% successful hair follicle survival rate leading to thicker hair volume.
HOW DOES AN AESTHETIC CLINIC PERFORM A FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT?
Although the process can be lengthy, most individuals can complete follicular unit extraction in a single session.
Here are the procedures of what you can generally expect of a FUE hair transplant at an aesthetic clinic:
STEP 1: Personalised Consultation
FUE hair transplants vary greatly from patient to patient. Most aesthetic clinics offer a professional one-to-one consultation with the doctor who will come up with a personalised hair care plan for you, tips on how you can prepare yourself for the hair transplant and what you can expect out of it.
STEP 2: Prepping Up of Donor Area
Before your treatment starts, the back of your head will be prepped. Markings are applied, the hair in the donor area (the back of head) is shaven down/trimmed to facilitate the identification and removal of strong, healthy donor hairs and later, anaesthetised.
STEP 3: Extraction of Follicular Units from the Donor Area
Next, the “harvesting” of the grafts begin. During this phase, the doctor will use a tweezer-like instrument to harvest the grafts one by one. This takes about two hours, depending on how many grafts can be harvested. The removed grafts are checked and prepared for implantation.
STEP 4: Opening the Incision Holes
During this hair transplant phase, the recipient area is locally anaesthetised. In this area, incisions will be made to match the direction of your hair growth pattern.
STEP 5: Implantation of the Grafts into the Recipient Area
The follicular grafts are then implanted one by one into the scalp area, to maximise the naturalness, density and coverage of the thinning areas until they eventually grow into real thick natural hair.
STEP 6: Aftercare
After the hair transplant, your scalp will be treated and bandaged. In addition, you will receive useful instructions from the doctor on how to take care of your scalp. After a couple of days, you can gently wash your hair.
FUE HEALING AND HAIR GROWTH
After the FUE hair transplant procedure, the tiny incisions left behind by the follicular units that are extracted will heal completely in a few days, leaving no scarring on your head.
Subsequently, anywhere between the first week up to 3 months after the transplant, you will notice that the newly transplanted hair will shed. Often, patients will be alarmed by the continued loss of hair, however, do not panic. Six to nine months after that, you can be assured that new hairs will continue to grow back naturally again.
