What is an FUE Hair Transplant?
What is an FUE Hair Transplant?

FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction and is a minimally invasive treatment. Such a technique is favoured by City Clinics, due to its minimal downtime and less obvious detection at the donor site. The FUE method requires skill and masterful precision, and so it is practised here by our doctors in the clinic.

How Does FUE Work?

Our doctors will remove follicles from regions containing the sufficient number of hair strands, predominantly found at the back of the neck, or sides of the head. The hair follicles are removed at the root by a medical extraction tool (which measures less than 1mm in diameter) and then; transplanted to the required area of the scalp, where thinning or balding is present. The harvested follicles are then implanted into the necessary areas using a stereomicroscope. Our surgeons take great care in ensuring that all hairs are implanted, at the same angle of the current hair growth in healthy regions, so that after treatment, the new hairs will grow unnoticeably.

FUT Vs FUE?
FUT Vs FUE?

FUT is the process of removing an entire strip of hair from the back of the head and harvesting the hair follicles from this strip. Unfortunately, this will leave an obvious scar across the patient's head. In contrast, FUE uses the process of removing individual hair follicles from different regions of the head. As a result, it is undetectable to the human eye and leaves no scarring.

Recovery time is also an essential factor to consider. FUT removes an entire strip of tissue from the scalp; thus, it can take weeks for the area to heal. However, as the removed follicles are small using FUE treatment, it generates minimal bleeding and so generally requires no longer than 7 days to heal.

With this in mind, there is no competition between the two different techniques. FUE is ultimately the better choice for an aesthetic end result and overall the patient's wellbeing, which is why it is the only, practised technique in our clinic.

Texture, colour and curl in your hair are all considered before recommending the use of this technique; so that you have the best possible chance to attain your desired outcome.

Is It Painful?

FUE is performed under local anaesthetic and is minimally invasive, which means most patients within our care will not feel anything whilst the surgery is underway. Though, on completion of the procedure, there may be mild discomfort whilst you heal, which will typically last a week at most.
