Procedure FUE Hair Transplantation

Local anaesthesia is administered, so it is a pain-free procedure. First, the donor area is decided which is usually the back of the head. Then the area is cleaned with a disinfectant and the donor area is prepared. The surgeon uses a cylindrical tool to make small units around the follicles on the donor area to isolate graft. The graft is then extracted from the scalp area. Proper care is taken so that the grafts remain in the appropriate condition, and they are placed under a high-powered stereomicroscope and prepared for the placement. Then a follicular unit graft group is formed and in each group about 1-4 grafts are present. A small incision is made on the recipient site. At the final stage of transplantation, the extracted hair follicles are transplanted at an angle of 40 to 45° with precision. This helps to ensure that the accurate placement of the follicles is performed. After the treatment, bandages will be applied to cover the scalp for a few days.

 

The growth factor treatment is often provided after the hair transplant procedure to enhance the results and also speed up the healing process on the operation site. 


Normally, the transplanted hair will fall and after a few days, the new hair growth will take place.

Ideal candidate for FUE Hair Transplantation

There are many considerations that a surgeon might look into to make sure that it is the right procedure for an individual.

 

  1. Age: Some people suffer from hair loss at a very young age and wish to get this treat hair transplant surgery done as soon as possible. People who experience hair loss in the early twenties can opt for this procedure but they need proper care and treatment to their hair to counteract their baldness in future or later life. 
  2. Male and Female pattern baldness. 
  3. The severity of hair loss and the amount of hair available for hair transplantation, also decide whether a person is a good candidate for hair transplantation or not. 
  4. Lost some part of the hair due to burn or scalp injuries.
  5. Good overall health.

 

Note: If someone is suffering from long term health issues or problems such as diabetes, heart disease, bleeding disorder, they must inform the surgeon during the initial consultation. People with poor donor area or unpatterned alopecia are not recommended to opt for a hair transplant. People suffering from hair loss due to medication or treatments like chemotherapy are also not ideal candidates for hair transplantation.
