Extraction (FUE)?

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a minimally invasive procedure that ensures natural-looking and long-lasting results. In the FUE procedure, individual hair follicles are extracted from the donor area (typically the back or sides of the scalp), one by one, using a specialized micro-punch tool. The follicular units can contain up to four hairs each. Dr. Im will carefully select and remove the healthy hair follicle, preserving their integrity.

After extraction, tiny incisions are made in the recipient area of the scalp. The transplanted follicular units placed into these incisions are placed in a natural and undetectable pattern. As the hairs grow they will begin to blend with the existing hair, providing a natural-looking result.

Benefits of FUE

1. Minimal scarring:

Because hairs are removed individually, an FUE hair transplant won’t leave a linear scar as with FUT surgery. The scars are individual scars the size of a your hair follicle scattered throughout your scalp, that are difficult to detect. The lack of a visible scar in FUE makes it the most popular choice for those who prefer short hair.

2. Less invasive:

FUE is a minimally invasive procedure as it involves extracting individual hair follicles one by one using a micro-punch tool. This is less traumatic for the scale compared to the strip extraction method used in FUT.

1. Faster Recovery:

Because it is a minimally invasive procure the recovery period is quicker. There’s typically less discomfort and you can return to regular activities sooner.

4. No sutures required:

Unlike FUT, FUE does not require any sutures or stitches, therefore no need for you to come back and have them removed.

5. No limitations on hair length:

FUE doesn’t disturb the hair follicles during extraction, allowing you to keep your hair long, without the risk of visible scarring

6. Reduced risk of nerve damage:

The precise extraction of the individual follicular unit means the risk of damaging nerves and blood vessels in the donor area is minimized.

7. Better for patients with limited donor supply:

In the case that you may have limited donor hair available, FUE could be beneficial for you. Individual hair follicles can be strategically extracted without depleting the donor area.

8. Natural-looking results:

Since hair follicles are transplanted one by one and scarring is minimal, FUE creates a more natural hairline and overall appearance.

9. Versatility:

FUE can be used for hair transplantation in other areas, such as eyebrows, beards, or mustache areas.

The Procedure

Step

Your Consultation.

You’ll be evaluated on your hair loss pattern and assess the quality of the donor hair. You’ll discuss your goals and expectations and determine if FUE is for you.

Step

Donor Area Preparation.

On the day of your procedure, you’ll be positioned face down or on your side depending on where your donor area was determined. Your donor hair will be trimmed to a very short length for the surgeon to identify and extract individual follicular units.

Step

Local Anesthesia.

Local anesthesia will be administered to numb both the donor area and the recipient area. This will ensure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure.

Step

Follicular Unit Extraction.

Using a specialized micro-punch tool (often a diameter of 0.6 to 1.0 mm), the surgeon will carefully extract the individual follicular units from the donor area. Each unit may contain one to four hairs.

Step

Storage of Harvested Follicles.

As your hair follicular units are extracted they will be preserved in a nutrient-rich solution to ensure their viability until they are transplanted.

Step

Recipient Area Creation.

Once extraction is completed, tiny incisions or slits will be created in the recipient area. Incision depth, angle, and direction are crucial factors in achieving natural-looking results.

Step

Transplantation of Follicular Units.

The preserved hair follicles are delicately transplanted into the prepared incisions of the recipient area. For seamless integration of the transplanted hairs with the patient’s existing hair, the surgeon takes the natural hairline design and the direction of existing hair into account.

Step

Post-Procedure Care.

After the transplantation is complete, the surgeon provides instructions on post-operative care and medications, which may include antibiotics and pain relief, to aid in the healing process and minimize the risk of infection.

The length of the FUE procedure can vary depending on the number of grafts required and the individual patient’s characteristics. Larger sessions may require multiple sessions over consecutive days.

– Patient “Cindy”

“As age advances, I became concerned about my receding hairline. However, when my younger brother showed me before and after photos of his procedure and his hair, I felt the desire to do the same. I made a reservation and went through the consultation process, feeling a bit anxious about how much it might hurt. But from the moment the anesthesia started until the procedure was over, I didn’t feel any pain at all. It was a very comfortable experience. I am grateful to Dr. Im and the consultant for their attentive care during the procedure.”
