What is FUE Hair Transplant?

FUE (Follicle Unit Extraction) hair transplant is a modern hair transplant technique in which the individual grafts are extracted from the donor area and implanted in the recipient area (usually the Scalp). No large incisions are involved in the process, and the natural hairline can be achieved with the surgeon’s expertise.

FUE stands for Follicle Unit Extraction, this is one of the latest hair transplant methods being used at Euro med clinic Dubai.

Who is a good candidate for FUE hair Transplant?

If you are an individual who is experiencing hair fall and you have a strong donor area, you are the ideal candidate for a hair transplant.

You are an ideal candidate for FUE hair transplant if:

  • You are experiencing hair fall, and the hair loss area is increasing in size
  • If your hairline is reducing
  • Or your hair has a patchy growth.
  • Your donor area should also have thick hair on the back of the head to achieve the desired results from the FUE hair transplant.

Why do I need a hair transplant?

You need a hair transplant to enhance your look and cover the patchy area of your head. People who experience significant hair fall lose their attractive looks, and hair transplantation is a cosmetic procedure that helps you regain it.

If you are experiencing hair fall, that’s the first sign to go for a hair transplant.

Some other factors which determine if you need a hair fall are:

  • If you are not happy with the outlook of your hair and you want to enhance your attractive looks.
  •  If you are experiencing significant hair fall, which is affecting the density of your hair.
  •  If you have thin hair on your head or some visible bald spots.
  •  If you have a reducing hairline and you want to go through the procedure to achieve a natural hairline.

FUE Pre-Op care

Like every other cosmetic procedure, FUE hair transplant also has several pre-op guidelines which you need to follow. These guidelines will ensure that the procedure is conducted safely and the desired results are achieved.

Some of the FUE Pre-op guidelines are mentioned below, make sure to abide by them so that you may achieve the desired results from your hair transplant.

  • You will not consume alcohol or coffee the night before your surgery.
  • Smoking may delay wound healing. Therefore, it is advised to quit smoking a day before the procedure.
  • You will apprehend your exercise plans a night before the transplant.
  • You will have a good breakfast on the night of your procedure.

How is an FUE hair transplant done?

There are three steps in FUE hair transplant:

Step 1: In the first step, Local anesthesia is given to the patient, and the hair is extracted carefully from the donor area. Our surgeon and staff make sure to extract the hair that is suitable for implantation. After hair extraction, they are stored and processed in the storage medium.

Step 2: In this step, the opening of channels for hair transplantation takes place. This is an important step, and the angles of hair transplantation are decided in this step.

Step 3: The third step is the placement of hair, in this step, the grafts are carefully inserted in the holes in the proper direction to achieve the desired results. At Euro med clinic, our goal is to ensure the survival of 90 to 95% survival of hair grafts.

FUE has become popular for two reasons. The first one is that the results of FUE hair transplant are more natural, the hair line gives a more natural look, and the scalp is covered with thick hair. Secondly, the procedure doesn’t involve any visible scalp. Therefore, most people prefer undergoing an FUE hair transplant.

The donor area plays an important role in hair transplantation, if your donor area is thicker and has healthy hair grafts, you are likely to achieve the desired results from your hair transplantation. For the patients with weak donor areas, several medicines are prescribed to enhance the hair’s thickness, and then the procedure is conducted.

After the procedure, maintain a stress-free lifestyle for at least three weeks, which helps achieve the desired results of an FUE hair transplant.
