Hair Transplantation (FUE)

Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure

Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of healthy hair follicles from a donor area of the scalp and transplanting them to an area of the scalp with thinning or balding hair. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a popular method of hair transplantation.

During an FUE hair transplant procedure, hair follicles are individually extracted from the donor area of the scalp using a specialized instrument called a micro punch. The extracted hair follicles are then implanted into the recipient area of the scalp.

FUE hair transplantation has several advantages over other hair restoration methods. It is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require a large incision or stitches. FUE also allows for the transplantation of hair follicles one at a time, which allows for a more natural-looking result.

The recovery time after an FUE hair transplant procedure is relatively quick. Most patients can return to work within a few days and can resume normal activities within a week. However, it is important to follow the post-operative instructions provided by the surgeon to ensure proper healing.

It is important to note that hair transplantation, including FUE, is a surgical procedure and carries some risks, such as bleeding, infection, and scarring. It is important to choose a qualified and experienced surgeon to minimize these risks and achieve the best possible results.
