The FUE hair transplant done at our center is currently the most optimal way to successfully restore your full head of hair. FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction. This is a major step forward from the outdated FUT method, where the surgeon has to remove a whole strip of skin from the patient’s scalp.
PROCEDURE OF A FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT
FUE SURGERY INVOLVES 4 STAGES :
STEP 1: The head is shaved & cleaned with antiseptic solution. Then, the surgeon creates punch incisions around the hair follicles and then extracts the hair grafts from the donor area. This is done under local anaesthesia. Here we make sure not to damage the follicles, otherwise, they will not be able to properly settle on the recipient area.
STEP 3: Then, the grafts are removed. One graft may contain about 1-4 hairs, which are extracted at once. After that, the grafts are placed in a special nutrient solution. This solution ensures proper storage conditions for the grafts, while they are cut off from the body’s natural nutrient supply. Moreover, it stimulates cell growth and enriches the grafts with active elements to increase their survival rate after the implantation
STEP2: The grafts are usually harvested from the back and the sides of the head, as these areas have a high density of hair and are resistant to balding. Also, the hair in these areas is more resistant to DHT, a hormone that triggers hair loss.
STEP 4: As the last step, the surgeon creates incisions on the recipient area and then implants them with the hair. The hairline reconstruction can also be done according to the patient’s desire. Currently, the FUE hair transplant is the safest and most effective baldness treatment available. For this reason, we do not perform FUT surgery at our clinic.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF THE FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT ?
The FUE method requires a high level of precision and takes longer to perform, but it yields excellent results. You do not have to worry about having any wounds or scars on the back of your head. The small punctures made with the special surgical instrument heal quickly.
An FUE hair transplant is a highly successful baldness treatment that gives a natural look to the patient. When performing FUE, the doctor must take into account the direction in which the natural hair grows and implant the removed hair according to this direction to ensure the most natural-looking results. At Joshys Medical Center, FUE hair transplant is executed properly, & we make sure the success rate is between 90 to 100%.
One major advantage is that recovery time is faster with FUE, when compared to FUT. This is due to the minimally invasive nature of the surgery. Normally, the patient can return to his or her work 7-10 days after the treatment.
HOW MUCH DOES A FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT COST ?
The price of the FUE hair transplant is a bit higher than those of the older FUT method, due to a more sophisticated technique and the longer duration of the surgery.
The downtime is very short after a FUE and the patient can go back to their normal lives after a week. Price varies from patient to patient & also depends on the number of grafts and sessions required. After, the initial workup and examination, we will create a personalised cost plan for you.
