FUE Hair Transplant

What is FUE Hair Transplant?

Follicular Unit Extraction is an advanced hair transplantation technique that has gained immense popularity over the past few years because of its patient acceptability, quick healing time, and exceptional results. Unlike FUT that produces a linear scar due to removal of a strip from the donor area, FUE extracts each individual follicular unit directly from the scar and implants it to a pre-marked area using a powerful stereo microscope to produce natural results.

Hair loss is a pretty common dermatological issue faced by a large majority of both men and women, but that doesn’t make it any easier to deal with. At IK Clinics, we understand the stress and misery associated with hair thinning; therefore, we offer you a minimally invasive but effective solution for hair loss — FUE Hair Transplant. The technique delivers the precise results you desire without producing a linear scar that you need to hide or be embarrassed about.

What to Expect?

FUE hair transplant is an effective technique that produces natural, undetectable results. However, since it involves extraction of each follicular unit directly from the scalp, the process is a bit time-invasive.

During a FUE hair transplant procedure, you will be given a sedative to relax. However, you may choose not to take the sedative if you want to stay fully alert. A local anaesthetic is then applied to the scalp in order to minimise pain. The area from where the donor tissue is to be removed is shaved. Then, your surgeon will scan the donor area and remove follicular units one by one. Once the extraction is done, the area will be covered with a dressing which you can remove the following day.

After extraction, the surgeon prepares the recipient site using a fine instrument. The units are then implanted into the site in groups of 1 to 4 units to create a soft, natural hairline. During this entire process, you can play games on your phone or watch TV to pass your time.

Why Choose FUE Over Other Hair Transplant Methods?

FUR Hair Transplant is one of the least invasive hair loss treatments that produce permanent results without causing much pain or discomfort. The technique is preferred by patients due to the following reasons:

  • No Linear Scar and Stitches — FUE hair transplant does not result in a linear scar so you can keep your hair short or style them any way you like without the need of giving explanations to your friends.
  • Quick Healing Time — The process results in minimal pain and swelling as it does not involve use of scalpels or stitches.
  • Natural-Looking, Permanent Results — FUE produces no visible plugs. Instead, each follicular unit is implanted with great care and skill to produce a natural hairline.

Is There Any Scientific Evidence Regarding the Effectiveness of FUE Hair Transplant?

Known for its minimally invasive nature and natural results, FUE hair transplant has been advocated as an effective hair loss treatment by several research studies as well. A review published in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery concludes that FUE is a suitable choice for individuals who want to avoid the linear scar created by strip hair transplants or who desire a minimally invasive procedure with a pain-free post-op period.

Another study has found FUE to be an effective option for patients with androgenic alopecia or hair loss due to any other reason. The study concludes that FUE hair transplant is the preferred option for patients seeking surgical hair restoration without a noticeable linear scar.

Who is a Candidate?

Because of its less invasive nature and its natural results, FUE hair transplant is an effective hair loss solution for individuals who:

  • Have not responded to Finasteride or Minoxidil
  • Want to wear their hair short and, therefore, do not want their hair transplant to produce a noticeable linear scar
  • Want to get back to their daily routine quickly, such as athletes
  • Have responded poorly to strip hair transplant
