FUE method hair transplant

Starting from


Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplantation is a surgical procedure used for the permanent transplantation of healthy hair follicles from areas where hair normally grows to areas of the scalp that have experienced hair loss or thinning. This technique involves individually extracting hair follicles from the donor area, typically the back of the head, and transplanting them to areas where hair is thinning or absent.


Candidates for FUE hair transplantation are typically men and women who suffer from hair thinning, hair loss, or baldness caused by genetics, aging, hormonal changes, or other factors. This procedure can be beneficial for those looking to increase hair density and restore a natural appearance to the scalp.


Before FUE hair transplantation, patients will consult with a physician to understand the goals of the procedure and potential outcomes. Preparation for treatment may involve medical examinations and evaluations, as well as instructions on how to prepare for the procedure itself.


During FUE hair transplantation, the surgeon will individually extract hair follicles from the donor area and precisely transplant them to the desired area of the scalp. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia to minimize patient discomfort.


The results of FUE hair transplantation include increased hair density, restoration of a natural scalp appearance, and improved self-confidence for patients who have struggled with hair loss.


After hair transplantation, it is important to follow the physician's instructions to reduce the risk of complications and achieve successful recovery. Regular check-ups and proper scalp care are also important for achieving optimal results.


What is the FUE method of hair transplant?

The FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method is a hair transplant technique where individual hair follicles are extracted from the donor area and transplanted into the recipient area, allowing for a natural-looking hairline and minimal scarring.

How is the FUE method different from other hair transplant techniques?

Unlike traditional methods like FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation), the FUE method does not require a linear incision or sutures, making it a minimally invasive procedure with faster healing and less noticeable scarring.

Who is a suitable candidate for FUE hair transplant?

Most individuals experiencing hair loss or baldness can be considered for FUE hair transplant, but a thorough consultation with a hair transplant specialist is necessary to determine eligibility based on factors such as donor hair availability, overall health, and expectations.

Is the FUE method painful?

Local anesthesia is administered during the FUE procedure, ensuring minimal discomfort. Patients may experience mild soreness or swelling in the days following the procedure, but it is manageable with pain medications prescribed by the surgeon.

How long does the recovery period last after FUE hair transplant?

The recovery period after FUE hair transplant can vary, but most individuals can resume normal activities within a week. The transplanted hair will shed within a few weeks, and new hair growth typically starts after 3-4 months.

Will the transplanted hair look natural?

Yes, the FUE method allows for precise extraction and placement of individual hair follicles, resulting in a natural appearance. The transplanted hair will grow and blend in with the existing hair, providing a seamless result.

Are the results of FUE hair transplant permanent?

Yes, the transplanted hair follicles are typically resistant to the hormone responsible for hair loss, making them more likely to remain and grow permanently. However, it's essential to follow post-transplant care instructions to optimize the results.

Are there any risks or complications associated with FUE hair transplant?

FUE hair transplant is generally safe, but like any surgical procedure, there are potential risks, such as infection, bleeding, or scarring. However, when performed by a skilled surgeon, the risks are minimal.

Can FUE hair transplant be combined with other hair restoration treatments?

Yes, FUE hair transplant can be combined with other hair restoration treatments, such as PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) therapy or laser therapy, to enhance results and stimulate hair growth. Your hair transplant specialist can provide personalized recommendations.

Is FUE hair transplant suitable for women with hair loss?

Yes, FUE hair transplant can be an effective solution for women experiencing hair loss or thinning. However, the underlying cause of hair loss should be assessed, and a thorough evaluation is necessary to determine the best treatment approach for each individual.
