Hair Transplantation: FUE

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplantation: What You Need to Know

Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that can be used to restore hair loss. There are two main types of hair transplantation: follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE).

FUT is the traditional method of hair transplantation. In FUT, a strip of skin is removed from the back of the scalp, and the hair follicles are extracted from the strip. The strip is then sewn back together.

FUE is a newer method of hair transplantation. In FUE, individual hair follicles are extracted from the back of the scalp using a small punch. The holes left behind are very small and are usually not visible.

Aurora Clinic offers FUE hair transplantation as a consultancy service. We have a team of experienced surgeons who can help you achieve the hair restoration results you desire.

How does FUE work?

FUE hair transplantation is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed under local anesthesia. The surgeon will use a small punch to extract individual hair follicles from the back of the scalp. The follicles are then transplanted to the balding area.

The number of grafts that can be transplanted in a single session depends on the extent of hair loss and the donor area. In general, most patients need two or more sessions to achieve their desired results.

What are the benefits of FUE hair transplantation?

There are several benefits to FUE hair transplantation, including:

  • Smaller incisions and less scarring: FUE leaves behind very small incisions, which are often not visible. This is in contrast to FUT, which leaves behind a linear scar.
  • More natural-looking results: FUE can be used to transplant individual hair follicles, which can help to create a more natural-looking hairline.
  • Less downtime: FUE patients can typically return to work and social activities within a few days of surgery.

What are the risks of FUE hair transplantation?

As with any surgery, there are some risks associated with FUE hair transplantation, including:

  • Bleeding: Bleeding is a common side effect of FUE hair transplantation. However, it is usually minor and can be controlled with pressure.
  • Infection: The risk of infection is also low, but it is important to follow your surgeon’s instructions carefully to help prevent infection.
  • Hair loss: In rare cases, hair loss can occur in the donor area. However, this is usually temporary and the hair will eventually grow back.

Is FUE right for me?

FUE hair transplantation may be a good option for you if you are experiencing hair loss and are looking for a natural-looking solution. However, it is important to talk to a qualified surgeon to determine if FUE is the right treatment for you.

  • The clinic’s facilities: The clinic should be clean and well-equipped.
  • The clinic’s aftercare: The clinic should provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your hair after surgery.

By choosing a reputable clinic with experienced surgeons, you can increase your chances of achieving successful hair restoration results.a
