Hair loss can be due to hereditary factors, stress, aging or nutritional problems. Hair loss isn’t just a guy thing. Hair loss in women is as common as hair loss in men. Women, however, are more prone to postpartum hair loss (hair loss after pregnancy).
FUE Hair Transplant
Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, is a method used for hair transplants to give patients with balding or thinning manes a naturally thicker appearance to hair. Unlike more invasive methods such as follicular unit transplantation, or FUT, this method does not require the removal of a donor strip of scalp to extract individual follicles. The FUE technique is performed manually, from extraction to implantation, that demands immense skill and precision by a skilled hair transplant surgeon to achieve the best result.
Is FUE right for me?
It can be hard to know if FUE is right for you, or even if you are a good candidate for FUE hair transplantation. One of the things that you need for FUE is a healthy hair growth at the back and sides of the head, in order to serve as a donor area for follicles to be harvested from. Other factors, such as hair colour, texture and waviness or curliness may also affect the cosmetic result.
The quickest way to find out if FUE is right for you is to book a consultation. We can easily help you with any questions, and determine whether or not you would be a good candidate for FUE.
Does FUE hurt?
FUE is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is administered under local anaesthetic, pain is minimised and most patients do not feel anything at all. You will be conscious for the entire time that the procedure is administered.
There will be some mild discomfort during the recovery process, but this only lasts around seven days. The risk of complications as a result of FUE is also extremely low.
How much does FUE cost?
There is no one price fits all when it comes to hair transplants, and they can be an expensive procedure – depending on how extensive the work and severity is. The cost can vary depending on a number of factors.
The results of an FUE hair transplant
FUE is widely known to be the best hair transplant technique currently around. What makes FUE so remarkable is the way hairs are implanted: experienced specialists carefully map your hair growth before implantation so they know where and on what angle to place each follicle.
It’s an exacting process that takes a lot of experience and expertise, but we believe the result is worth it: with a successful FUE transplant, donor hair grows, moves and feels the way it used to. This is the highest-quality hair transplant available.
As this is your natural hair, just moved from place to place, it will grow exactly as normal hair and is permanent.
