FUE Hair Transplant

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is indeed a type of hair transplant procedure that involves the extraction of individual hair follicles from the donor area of the scalp and their transplantation to areas where hair is thinning or absent. FUE has gained popularity due to its ability to provide more natural-looking results compared to older techniques like Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), which sometimes resulted in a “hair plugs” appearance.


During FUE, surgeons use specialized micropunches, typically ranging from 0.6 to 1.0 millimeters in diameter, to carefully extract individual hair follicles from the donor area. These follicles are then transplanted to the recipient area where hair restoration is desired. The small size of the extraction sites allows for minimal scarring and a quicker recovery compared to traditional strip harvesting methods used in FUT.

Procedure for FUE hair transplant

Here’s how the FUE procedure works:

  • Your surgeon will shave down the hair in the area where follicles will be removed as well as around the transplant area.
  • Using a micropunch tool, they will remove follicles from your skin.
  • Your surgeon will then make a series of tiny incisions with a needle or other small, sharp tool where the extracted follicles will be inserted.
  • They’ll insert the follicles into the incisions.
  • Your surgeon will clean and bandage the area for recovery.

FUE Method for Hair Transplantation

Certainly, the advancement of technology and science has played a significant role in the field of hair transplantation. This development has brought joy to individuals seeking hair restoration, resulting in a high demand for such procedures. Hair transplantation is not only popular among men but also among women, as it can provide highly satisfying results. The FUE method, which involves individually extracting hair follicles from the donor area on the back of the head using a motorized tool and transplanting them to the balding area using the micro-grafting technique, has proven to be very successful. This technique allows for the achievement of healthy and voluminous-looking hair.

In a single session, approximately 5,000 to 6,000 grafts can be harvested from the donor area on the back of the head. If the degree of baldness is more extensive, a second session can be performed, allowing for a total of up to 10,000 hair grafts to be obtained.

The transplanted hair will shed after 3 months and then start to regrow. By 6 months after the procedure, all transplanted hair will have grown, resulting in a healthy and full appearance. The transplanted hair will not shed after this stage.
