FUE Hair Transplant Surgery
The FUE hair transplant method is the most popular procedure that’s completed within 1 day. FUE or Follicular Hair Extraction involves removing healthy hair follicles from the side or back of the head and then grafting them onto a thinning area.
By using short-term anaesthetics, the FUE transplant procedure minimises patient discomfort even when extracting and implanting up to 4000 hair follicles. This method allows for fast recovery and hair growth post transplant, while also leaving no visible scarring.
We also offer follow-up treatments to stimulate hair growth and aid recovery. The Wimpole Clinic’s treatments include PRP and ATP therapy as well as high-frequency laser treatment to further aid hair growth after the FUE hair transplant procedure.
The FUE Hair Transplant Procedure
Individual hairs are removed from the back of the head under local anaesthesia
State of the art electronic 0.09mm punch is used to extract the individual hair roots
1000 – 2500 hair grafts are removed depending on the hair hairline and density required
Incisions are made in the scalp in preparation to receive the grafts
The hair grafts are carefully placed into the incisions in the scalp area
The scalp takes 3-7 days to recover leaving no visible scarring
The FUE Hair Transplant Process
The donor area is prepared by washing and shaving an area from the side or back of the head normally ear to ear. A local anaesthetic is applied to reduce discomfort whilst the hair transplant surgeon uses a state of the art electronic punch to extract the individual hair grafts. An antiseptic dressing is applied to the donor area which can be removed the following day.
The grafts are extracted using a 0.9mm electronic punch and categorised into grafts containing one, two or three hairs. Once selected by Wimpole’s technicians, the hairs are then prepared for transplantation to the new hairline area. The hair extraction process process typically takes between 1 to 3 hours depending on the number of grafts to be extracted.
The new boundary for your hairline is marked before small slits are made to the scalp area shortly before the graft commences. The hair grafts are placed evenly into the small openings to match your existing hair pattern, angle and desired density. A typical hair placement procedure can take between 1 to 3 hours and the new hairline will be instantly noticeable.
The Aftercare Plan
An aftercare pack is provided that contains special shampoos and information on how to care for your transplanted hair. You’ll have a hair examination after 1 month to check the progress of your hair transplant. This will be followed up with a complimentary high-frequency laser treatment session that will promote hair growth. You’ll also receive advice on how best to care for your new hair.
