At the The Hair Clinic we’re experts in hair replacement, we exclusively perform FUE transplants for our patients. This leading-edge method of hair transplantation is highly technical and the most effective way of getting maximum value out of every donor hair.
What is FUE?
Follicular Unit Extraction, sometimes referred to as FUE, is the modern technique of hair restoration. FUE is a minimally invasive hair restoration option that demands skill and precision to achive the best result.
How it works
During an FUE transplant, a highly experienced doctor extracts hair follicles from the donor area, typically the back of the neck, using a specialised extraction instrument less than 1mm in diameter. Follicles are then transferred to the recipient area on your scalp and implanted using a powerful stereo microscope in groups of one to four hairs, just as they grow in nature.
This is a Minimally invasive,surgical procedure so you will remain fully conscious the whole time as only local anesthetic is required. Recovery time is short and the risk of complications is low.
After the procedure we will provide you with clear instructions on aftercare, as well as medication and topical treatments to give you the best result possible.
How is it different?
FUE differs from normal hair transplants in several ways. The first is that it is noticeable for not leaving any linear scars, or any noticeable changes (other than a renewed lease of life for your hair.)
Strip transplants, a method by which a piece of scalp covered in hair is removed in order to get hair follicles needed for transplantation, usually from the back of the head, leaves very distinctive lateral scars across the back of the head.
Strip transplant surgery also has a long recovery time, especially compared to FUE. FUE leaves some initial bleeding, but usually recovery is complete within 7 days. However, with strip harvesting, as a part of the scalp is removed, it can take weeks for the scars to heal over.
The results possible are of the highest quality and naturalness and undetectable which is the most significant advantage
