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.
