What is FUE?

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a type of hair transplant surgery that is a minimally invasive method of hair transplant. Which involves extracting individual hair follicles from a donor part of the body, usually the sides and back of the head.


Main advantage of FUE method is that it is always performed without leaving any linear scar on the donor area.

How does it work?

Individual FU's are removed directly from donor area without slits and sutures, the surgeon extracts each graft separately with a specialized punch 0.75-1.0 mm in diameter that does not leave scars as the strip method can.


These individual follicles are then implanted in the areas that are affected. Typically men suffering from male pattern baldness this will be the classic horseshoe area.


During the process, individual follicles – typically between 1 and 4 hairs – are removed under local anaesthesia. The extraction procedure utilises a micro surgical extraction instrument, between 0.6mm and 1.0mm in diameter, to remove the follicles.


The surgeon, using specialist micro surgical needles, then punctures the scalp area that is to receive the grafts. Our surgeon is an expert at blending the hair that matches the original hair, so it will look natural and realistic.
