Hair transplantation surgery has dramatically evolved over the years. Today FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is the most cutting-edge hair transplant procedure in the world.
FUE is a proven, minimally invasive outpatient procedure in which follicular unit grafts, consisting of a small number of hair follicles, are individually removed from the genetically stronger areas of your scalp and restored to your thinning areas.
The procedure is carried out under local anesthesia. The hair on the donor site is cut short or shaved. Follicular units containing 1-4 hairs along with nerves, blood vessels and muscle are extracted microscopically as a whole using microneedles directly from the scalp. The follicles are extracted over a wide area so as to not reduce the hair density too much. The extracted follicle units are kept viable in a holding solution while they await transplantation.
The size of the recipient area is determined by your natural hairline, facial appearance and ethnic background so as to make the transplant as natural as possible. The recipient site is prepared by making slit incisions with custom-made blades or needles, which can be adjusted to match the size of the follicular units. These slits are made so as to orient the transplanted hair to match natural hair growth. Most of the incisions are made in the planned recipient site after which implantation is done. This is followed by a phase of fine tuning where more incisions are made and follicles transplanted to perfect the hairline and appearance. No sutures or bandages are necessary after the procedure and the head can be covered by a cap
