FUE hair transplants
FUE (short for Follicular Unit Extraction) is a hair transplant technique, where single hair follicles are taken from the side and back of the scalp (donor area) and placed in the balding areas (recipient area) of the scalp.
This method was first introduced back in 2003 and since then has become the most popular method of hair restoration. FUE requires a tremendous amount of attention to detail and skill to perform. For this reason, patients should be very careful when they decide which doctor should perform their surgery. All of our E-Med-Cosmetics’ professionals are of a high standard and have a highly successful track record in performing FUE Hair Transplants; so much so, they have a worldwide reputation for their work.
What determines a successful FUE Hair Transplant?
This is down to the skill of the doctor you choose to perform your surgery. It is important to note that not every medical professional that claims they are an FUE specialist is capable of performing a high standard of surgery. This is why E-Med-Cosmetics’ professionals only work with doctors who have proven, time and again, that they really are the experts in their field.
One of the most important aspects of performing an FUE Hair Transplant, which also determines whether the surgery is to be successful, is the design and distribution of the hair follicles during their placement. For this reason, when planning a hair transplant, every procedure should be unique to each patient and customised to their needs.
Factors that should be considered before surgery is commenced are:
- Age of the person planning to undergo an FUE Hair Transplant.
- The extent of the patient’s hair loss; if hair loss is excessive then maybe a two day FUE Hair Transplant is required for desired results.
- Patients expectations should be discussed in detail.
- The number of available follicles a patient has in their donor area.
- Has the patient’s hair loss stabilised? If not, a future treatment plan should be discussed to ensure results of the surgery can be maintained.
What results may you expect after your FUE Hair Transplant?
Just to stress once again, this depends on the level of skill of the doctor who performs your FUE Hair Transplant. If your doctor is very experienced, the results of an FUE Hair Transplant can be excellent; the growth in most cases reaches very high levels.
However, it is important to recognise that hair growth will be gradual over several months; every month the growth and thickness of hair will increase; normally, optimum results are seen between 9–12 months.
The transplanted hair is permanent and will behave like your normal hair.
The advantages of FUE Hair Transplants.
FUE Hair Transplants are much more popular than the old fashioned method known as FUT/Strip, due to the less invasive nature of the procedure. Other advantages of FUE Hair Transplants include:
- scarring of the donor area is avoided
- procedure is relatively painless
- recovery time is quicker
- reduces possibility of post–operative oedema
- allows reuse of the donor area
- excessive bleeding is avoided
