FUE Hair Transplant

FUE Hair Transplant

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a novel hair transplant technique, in which hair follicles are transplanted into the bald or thinning area from a donor site – an area of dense hair generally located on the back or side of the head — using micro punches to extract individual follicles.

FUE hair restoration provides patients permanent, natural looking outcomes.


Suitable Candidates for Follicular Unit Extraction

FUE hair transplants typically give the best results if you:

  • Want to keep your hair very short. FUE does not result in a linear scar.
  • Fail proper healing after previous procedures and wish to hide scars or get better outcomes.
  • Have a very tight scalp, as this makes you a bad candidate for FUT.

One week before Follicular Unit Extraction

  • Avoid using Minoxidil/Rogaine 14 days prior to treatment.
  • Stop taking anti-inflammatory agents or NSAIDs, such as aspirin.
  • Do not consume alcohol.
  • Do not take Vitamin B and E supplements.

Day of Follicular Unit Extraction

  • Wash your hair with a soft shampoo
  • Do not use hair care products
  • Enjoy a nutritious morning breakfast
  • Do not consume coffee or any beverages containing caffeine
  • Wear comfortable clothes, as you will be in a lying position during the majority of the day

Follicular Unit Extraction Procedure


During the follicular unit extraction, each follicular unit is extracted from the donor site through a small round punch excision of 1 mm or less in size. Next, grafts are adapted to the bald or hair-thinning area.

After the Procedure

Follicular unit extraction is carried out under local anesthesia and hospitalization is not necessary for this procedure. You will be instructed about postoperative considerations that address medicines, antibiotherapy and dietary and physical activity restrictions in the recovery period.

Patients have no discomfort during the short-term recovery period and they can start working 2 to 3 days after the treatment.
