What’s FUE Hair Transplant?
Follicular Unit Extraction, often referred to as FUE Hair Transplant, is a minimally invasive procedure whereby individual follicles containing 1 to 4 hairs are removed under local anaesthesia and then transplanted onto balding and thinning areas. The surgeon uses very small micro blades or fine needles to make incisions to harvest the grafts, individually inserting them in a predetermined density and pattern for a natural looking result. FUE Hair Transplant varies according to the surgeons’ experience, speed in harvesting and patient characteristics.
Proper extraction of the hair follicles is vital to ensuring the viability of the transplanted hair. Our surgeons take great care in ensuring that the hairs on both the donor and recipient sites are safeguarded and that no hairs are damaged during the procedure. The procedure can take anywhere from a couple hours to extract 1000 grafts to over 6-8 hours to extract 3000 to 4000 grafts.
FUE technique can give you remarkably natural results. The advantage over strip harvesting is that with FUE harvesting there’s no linear incision on the back of the head and it doesn’t leave a scar. Because individual follicles are removed, only small scars remain which are virtually not visible and any post-surgical pain and discomfort is minimized.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between FUE Hair Transplant and DHI?
The main difference between DHI and FUE procedures is the the way that the grafts are implanted into the recipient area. During DHI surgery, the Choi pen allows the implantation stage to happen within 1-2 minutes after the hair follicles are extracted, without the need to first create the canals for the grafts. The FUE technique on the other hand requires opening the canals prior to implantation, to allow for the extracted grafts to be implanted manually.
Is hair transplant a painful procedure?
Hair transplant is performed under local anesthesia so you will not feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure.
How long does a hair transplant procedure take?
The procedure can take anywhere from a couple hours to extract 1000 grafts to over 6-8 hours to extract 3000 to 4000 grafts.
When will I see the results?
You will start seeing the initial results only six months after surgery but it can take a year for you to see your final results. Hair follicles transferred to areas of loss will continue to grow for life.
Does hair grow back in the donor area?
Yes it does. A healthy scalp can show hair growth at the donor site within a few months.
Are the results from a hair transplant permanent?
FUE Hair Transplant is a permanent solution for hair loss and you will start seeing the initial results only six months after surgery. For optimum results, we will provide you with instructions on aftercare, medication and shampoos following your procedure. You may still lose your own hair due to various factors such as genetics and smoking, therefore you might need another hair transplant in the future.
Will I lose any hair after my hair transplant?
Two to three weeks after your hair transplant procedure, you will experience shedding. It is completely normal to shed your transplanted hair following an FUE hair transplant.
When can I have a haircut after my procedure?
We usually advise patients to wait a month before cutting their hair. At this point, the grafts will be secure and you’ll be fully headed.
How many sessions will I need?
This depends on the size of the area that is being treated and your desired look, so you might need more than one session. Your surgeon will discuss with you what look you are aiming to achieve and on that basis give you an estimate on the number of grafts he’s able to transplant during your procedure.
Is there a recommended age for hair transplant?
Although there is not really age limit, the best candidates for a hair transplant are usually those over the age of 30. Younger patients will likely need additional treatment later on in life as hair loss will still continue naturally.
