What is FUE?

FUE is a minimally invasive procedure in which hair follicles are individually removed from the genetically stronger area of the scalp, called the ‘donor site’ and are then restored at thinning areas of your scalp, called the ‘recipient site’.

It is a method to combat baldness by transferring healthy hair follicles to the balding area, hence your hair growth will be restored naturally without any scarring. This method is considered as an advanced hair transplant treatment with massive success rate. In this treatment, a micro-needle will be used to extract the hair follicles individually, making this a delicate and time-consuming procedure. As anesthesia will be administered, it is also regarded as a painless procedure.

Counting the amount of grafts needed is usually done by dividing the hair into parts/areas. 1 graft contains 2 to 4 strands of hair on average. Normally, 500 to 2000 grafts are recommended, depending on the areas of hair loss. 500 grafts can be used to touch up specific bald parts such as the upper forehead part, whereas 2000 grafts can be used to treat almost 3/4 of the hair.

The results take time to be fully noticeable, usually after 3 to 6 months of the treatment.
1 to 3 times of revisits are required to follow up the growth progress, depending on the hair condition.

Q1: Should I choose FUT or FUE?
A1: In general, FUT yields the most donor hair. Therefore, the procedure is best suited for more extensive hair loss and in patients where the main concern is the maximum use of one’s donor supply. The hair is maximized because of the precise nature of stereo-microscopic dissection and the fact that all the hair is harvested from the mid-portion of the permanent zone where the hair is most dense and stable. A limitation of FUT is that it leaves a line scar in the donor area. With normal styling, this is easily covered with hair, but it precludes someone from wearing their hair very short. FUE is more appropriate for patients who would like to keep their hair very short or who can’t limit strenuous activities in the post-op period. In general, younger patients who need to keep their styling options flexible choose FUE, whereas those who desire the most coverage opt for FUT.

Q2: Are hairs removed from the donor area re-growable?
A2: No, they are not re-growable as the hairs were removed along with hair bulbs.

Q3: Is the recovery time long?
A3: Although it will take up to 1 year for your transplanted beard to grow to its fullest, you can return to work the day after your hair transplant procedure.

Q4: Will it be painful?
A4: It is painless as anesthesia will be given. Discomfort and soreness may occur but it will be bearable. Our affiliated clinic will also provide painkillers and any other medication needed for you to deal with the discomfort and heal.

Q5: Any precautions I should take before the procedure?
A5: You should let the doctors know about your medical history and current condition. In addition, it is discouraged for you to take any blood flow stimulants or blood thinners prior to the procedure such as coffee, chocolate, vitamin complexes, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, aspirin, etc.
