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.
FUE hair transplants typically give the best results if you:
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.
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.
