What is FUE hair transplant?

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a modern hair transplant technique used to harvest individual hair follicles from the donor area (typically the back or sides of the scalp) and transplant them into the recipient area (where hair loss has occurred).

FUE is one of the two primary methods of hair transplantation, the other being Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). FUE Hair Transplant is less invasive than FUT, and thus favored by many patients and surgeons. It ensures minimal scarring, quicker recovery time and long-lasting results.

How does FUE hair transplant work?

Hair loss can have a significant impact on self-esteem and confidence. Hair transplant surgery provides a long-term solution for individuals looking to regain a fuller head of hair and feel more confident in their appearance.
Unlike temporary solutions such as medications or hairpieces, hair follicle surgery offers permanent results.

FUE hair transplant involves the extraction of individual hair follicles from the donor area of the scalp, typically the back or sides, using specialised instruments. These follicles are then meticulously transplanted into the recipient area, where hair loss has occurred, resulting in natural-looking hair growth over time.

The moment I had stepped in to the clinic I was greeted by the lovely Dr Bisma who had performed my PRP. Dr Bisma was amazing from the start to finish,and with her wealth of knowledge and expertise, I knew I was in good hands. Whilst trying to provide comfort during this process and reassurance I was admired Dr Bisma’s sensitivity and compassion throughout. Thank you to Dr Bisma and the team for this experience. Would definitely recommend!

Just had my non surgical DBL with dr Bisma at Dr Ducu clinic. From start to finish everything was fully explained to me, high standards of clinical hygiene were involved throughout the procedure and the pain was managed continuously. Overall I felt minimal discomfort and I can’t wait to come back for more!

The hair transplant London procedure

1. Consultation

The consultation takes place with one of Dr. Ducu Clinics’ experts in hair transplantation. During this time, the surgeon will assess your hair loss pattern, your concerns and desired results and will provide specialised advice. The surgeon will map and measure the treatment area to determine the right amount of follicles required at a specific density.

2. Extraction of Hair Follicles

The donor and recivient areas are shaved and local anaesthesia is administered. The surgeon extracts individual hair follicles from the donor area of the scalp using micro punches. The extraction process is performed meticulously to minimise damage to the follicles and ensure their viability for transplantation.

3. Recipient site preparation and transplantation

The surgeon creates now tiny incisions in the recipient area where the hair will be transplanted. These recipient sites are strategically placed following the natural hair growth pattern to achieve a natural-looking result.
The extracted hair follicles are carefully implanted into the recipient sites one by one. The surgeons at Dr. Ducu Clinics pay close attention to the angle, direction, and density of the transplanted hair to ensure optimal aesthetic outcomes.

4. Results

After the hair transplantation, you will be provided with instructions for post-operative care. This may include guidelines for washing the hair, avoiding strenuous activities, and managing any discomfort or swelling. Follow-up appointments may also be scheduled to monitor the progress of hair growth and address any concerns.

Here is why:

Minimal Scarring: FUE hair transplant leaves tiny, dot-like scars in the donor area, which are less noticeable compared to the linear scar associated with FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation).

Natural-looking results: Transplanted hair follicles behave like natural hair, growing in cycles and eventually shedding before regrowing. This process of shedding and regrowth contributes to the natural appearance of the transplanted hair over time.

Hair Density and Distribution: By transplanting individual follicles, FUE enables surgeons to achieve a natural distribution of hair with varying densities, ensuring a seamless blend with existing hair.

Suitable for short hair styles: FUE is a detailed procedure that makes it suitable even for short hair styles.

FUE hair transplant London benefits

The benefits of FUE hair transplant make it a popular choice for individuals seeking a minimally invasive, effective solution for hair loss. It is widely known as one of the best hair transplant techniques.

Hair transplant - Frequently asked questions

A good candidate for FUE should have an adequate supply of donor hair, typically located on the back or sides of the scalp. He should have stable hair loss patterns, meaning his hair loss has stabilised and is not progressing rapidly. Also, he should be in good overall health, as hair transplant surgery is a surgical procedure that requires anesthesia and involves a recovery period. There are also other factors discussed during the consultation.

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplant surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia, which numbs the scalp and minimises discomfort during the procedure. After the hair surgery, it’s common for patients to experience some mild discomfort, swelling, or tenderness in the donor and recipient areas of the scalp. This discomfort is typically manageable with over-the-counter pain medications and usually resolves within a few days to a week after the procedure.

 FUE hair transplant surgery is highly successful in restoring natural-looking hair growth for individuals experiencing hair loss when performed by a skilled surgeon and followed by proper post-operative care. It’s essential for patients to have realistic expectations and to consult with a qualified surgeon to determine their candidacy for the procedure.

Yes, FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplant surgery provides a permanent solution for hair loss. Once transplanted, the hair follicles continue to grow like natural hair, following the normal hair growth cycle. The transplanted hair is typically permanent, meaning it will continue to grow for the rest of the patient’s life.

(Please provide some ranges)

 We prioritise the use of single hair follicles, also known as single grafts. Utilising these single grafts creates a seamless look when styling the hair back, ensuring that any artificial appearance is minimised. Therefore, in hairline restoration, we predominantly employ single grafts to achieve the desired natural result.

After an FUE hair transplant, it’s essential to follow specific guidelines for sleeping to ensure the best possible healing and results. Use an extra pillow or a wedge pillow to elevate your head and upper body. Try to avoid putting direct pressure on the transplanted area while sleeping. Sleeping on your back or sides can help prevent accidental contact with the transplanted grafts.

Like any surgical procedure, FUE hair transplant surgery carries some inherent risks, although they are typically minimal when performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon. Some potential risks associated with FUE hair transplant surgery include bleeding, swelling or bruising. These are usually temporary and resolve within a week or two.

After an FUE hair transplant, the transplanted hair follicles typically go through a healing process before new hair growth begins. Typically, new hair growth from the transplanted follicles begins to emerge around three to four months after FUE surgery. Initially, the hair may appear fine and sparse, but it gradually thickens and becomes more noticeable over time. It can take up to 12-18 months after FUE surgery to see the full results of hair growth.

After the hair transplant surgery you will have follow-up appointments with your surgeon to monitor the progress of healing and hair growth. During these appointments, the surgeon may remove any sutures, assess the healing of the scalp, and provide further instructions for post-operative care.
