FUE Hair Transplant for men

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is the harvesting of individual hair grafts from the donor area. A circular punch is made in the skin around the upper part of the follicle from the back of the scalp. The location of the donor area lies in the permanent hair zone. It is gently extracted from the scalp and a small hole remains for a few days before closing off to a near invisible dot. The hair follicle is then positioned into the destination area.

An advancement of the FUE technique is the Unshaven or Long hair FUE which is technically more difficult, time consuming and expensive. However, this is more appealing to the executive or busy person who wants to hide the fact that they have had a hair transplant.

 

FUE Hair Transplant for women

Hair density and face framing are essential to an attractive woman. Hair restoration for women results in reliable and predictable outcomes. It allows for a quick recovery and return to social interaction with minimal to no discomfort.

FUT (Strip) and Follicular unit excision (FUE) harvesting of hair are both suitable options for ladies. FUT hair transplantation requires a strip of hair to be removed and for the site to be sewn back together. FUE on the other-hand requires individual circular punches to be made in the skin around the upper part of the follicle from the back of the scalp. The location of the donor area lies in the permanent hair zone. It is gently extracted from the scalp and a small hole remains for a few days before closing off to a near invisible dot. The hair follicle is then positioned into the destination area.

FAQ

Step 1 – Procedure Planning
The day begins by meeting with your Hair transplant Surgeon to discuss your specific goals and the plan for your procedure. This involves a detailed breakdown of the zones that will be restored towards achieving your desired look. We will go through your hair design again and mark the scalp and allow you to comment on the design whilst looking in a mirror.
Photos will be taken. Usually your hair will be trimmed if you have not trimmed it the day before the procedure
You will lie on your front whilst the extraction occurs and will have a comfortable head rest and a breathing hole so that you can maintain a relaxed position. Selected hair follicles will be harvested using circular punches. The follicular units are gently separated from the scalp and removed. Once the grafts are extracted, The donor area is covered with a dressing that may be removed the next day.

Step 2 – Local Anaesthesia & Donor Hair Harvesting
The next step in your procedure is the extraction of the donor hair. This is a key step that distinguishes the revolutionary Follicular unit hair transplant procedure from the FUT hair transplant.
Unlike the FUT procedure, which involves cutting a strip from the donor area to harvest the grafts, the Follicular unit hair transplant method requires no such strip removal, as follicular units are removed individually from the donor area. This results in a significantly shorter healing time and minimises any pain. As well, there is no linear scar along the donor area as is characteristic with the FUT procedure.

Step 3 – Preparation the Recipient Site
After all the grafts have been harvested from your donor area, we move on to the step of preparing the recipient sites that is, the areas that will be receiving the new hair.
Your HT Surgeon will prepare each graft site by making tiny incisions where the follicular units will be inserted with follicular unit hair transplant.
We position each follicle to ensure a natural hair flow. The strategic positioning of hair to match each patient’s individual, natural growth pattern is a key factor in achieving a truly undetectable result of FUE hair transplant.

Step 4 – Placement of the Grafts
The recipient sites are completed. Then under the direct supervision of the HT Surgeon, our Hair transplant team start placing each graft, one by one, into the donor sites.

EA Clinic offers bespoke patent care journeys to meet the personal requirements of every client. Providing an exceptional all in one package, so you can be sure your care is taken care of from the moment you sit down with us.

We like to see to see you at least twice before your hair transplant to discuss your aspirations, the procedure, the outcomes, what will happen on the day and answer any remaining questions.

Pre-operative screening: We take microbial swabs (MRSA) and run through the procedure to make sure you are doubly sure as to what will happen on the day.

Next day followup, 1 week followup, 1 month, 3 month 6 month and 9 month followup. We only discharge you after the 9-12 month followup when we are satisfied and you are happy.

If the scar is in area that used to be hair baring then it is possible to attempt to perform an FUE hair Transplant. It must be kept in mind that the area is scarred, there is less blood supply and the survival rates drop to approximately 50%. It can also be useful for repairing donor scars that cannot be excised.

The hair in the area to be removed is shaved immediately prior to your surgery, a long, thin band in smaller procedures and the entire back and sides of the scalp in large sessions. Hair is taken from the same donor area at the back of the scalp but shall be extracted such that existing hair will disguise the area of extraction. Discretion is the added advantage here. This technique is for those who want to return to a normal routine quickly and to disguise the signs of extraction. It is a time consuming technique and only suitable for small sessions of hair restoration surgery up to 600 FUE’s. You will be advised whether or not you will be suitable for this method and if not, discuss further preferable options.

No. Your hair has to go through a growth cycle before the results are noticeable. Normally results are seen 6 months after the procedure has taken place.

Our HT staff are composed of dedicated assistants who are hand picked by Dr Edwin Anthony, ensuring that each patient’s grafts are handled with the utmost care to guarantee that each patient achieves the best results. We ensure continuing professional growth by regular attendance at World renowned workshops and ISHRS meetings.
We offer you the bespoke care during and after the treatment that you would expect of a Harley Street clinic. We will schedule you for several followup appointments for 9-12 months and discharge only when we are happy with the result?

As we are taking your exact hair follicle from your head, the hair will grow exactly the same as if it was growing from your donor region. You hair will look natural.

After the FUE Hair transplant has taken place it is common for your hair to shed. This is a normal part of the process and your hair will grow back stronger and healthier.
