How does a FUE hair transplant work?

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

FUE is a hair transplant method in which the surgeon extracts the follicular units of hair from the donor area of the scalp one by one. The doctor makes a small incision around a hair follicle with a microneedle before extraction.

Each follicular unit contains one to four hairs. These grafts or groupings are then transplanted to the bald areas of the scalp. This is an ideal method of surgery and recommended for those who have a tight scalp or have undergone the FUT method but with little or no success.

What happens during the FUE procedure?

FUE hair transplant involves the following procedure:

  1. Initially, the doctor anesthetizes the scalp.
  2. The doctor makes a small incision using a small micro needle around a follicular unit on the scalp to isolate a graft.
  3. Then, using a tweezer-like instrument, the doctor extracts the follicular unit from the donor area. 
  4. The doctor makes small holes on the hair loss area of the scalp to harvest the follicular units on the specific site.
  5. Then the follicular units are placed in these holes from where they gradually start yielding hair.
  6. A disinfectant is gently applied to your head after the procedure.

In FUE transplant, there are more donor site options as the grafts can be extracted from other parts of the body. It can be used to fill in areas of eyebrows beard etc. 

What are the risks and disadvantages of the FUE procedure?

The risks and disadvantages of the FUE hair transplant procedure include: 

  • The white scars caused by the incisions made to extract the hair follicles will often get overlooked once the hair grows on the site.
  • There will be numbness, bleeding, swelling around the eyes and temporary cyst formation on the site where the hair is being transplanted.
  • If proper care is not taken during the surgery, there are chances of infection and inflammation.
  • People can experience hair loss which is temporary as the hair grows in few months.
  • The transplant procedure involves the extraction of follicular units, thus it is costly, tedious and time-consuming process.
  • Proper maintenance is required post surgery for hair loss treatment.

What are the advantages of an FUE procedure?  

Some of the advantages of the FUE procedure include: 

  • FUE is less invasive surgery than FUT with no visible scarring in the donor area
  • Good for short sessions and those who are in early stages of hair loss
  • Suitable for those who would like short hairstyles
