Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a minimally invasive procedure where it involves the extraction of individual follicular units from the donor area, strand by strand without a surgical incision involvement. The physician will then harvest the follicular units and implant them in the balding or recipient area. Unlike FUT, FUE does not leave linear donor scar. FUE is mostly indicated when the patient has widened scar or scalp laxity which are not suitable for FUT procedure.

FAQ & Questions.

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions by you, answered by our doctors.

Although the process for the procedure can take up a lot of time, a single session is sufficient in completing the treatment. However, a second session may be required if the density of the hair growth in a previously transplanted area does not meet expectations, to ensure refinement of the hairline from the first transplant and if further hair loss occurs after the first transplant. Careful evaluation and planning will be always done to decide if the procedure requires a second session.

Rest assured, prior to the transplant, local anaesthetic will be administered to the area of targeted area and this will reduce any discomfort during the transplant process.

Patients can easily return back to their daily activities about seven to ten days after the procedure. Typically, hair at the treated area will naturally grow over four to six months. Your new hair will be visible and your hairline starts to form. It takes about 18 months for the full hair transplant to be visible as hair only grows around 1 cm per month.
