FUE hair transplant: The best hair loss solution

By Alex

Deciding to tackle your hair loss is a big deal decision and it can be quite overwhelming when you start your research. There are a huge variety of different hair loss treatments that are currently available, from hair loss medication right up to hair transplants.

Trying to decide what treatment is right for you can be tough, we highly recommend booking a consultation with your chosen clinic to ensure you’re booking the right treatment for you. Today, we’re going to go through FUE hair transplants and tell you why they’re the best hair loss treatment.

What is an FUE hair transplant?

Follicular unit transfer is a modern method of hair transplantation that is more advanced and precise that older methods, such as strip harvesting and FUT hair transplants. FUE is a procedure that works to transplant hair from one area of the scalp to another, in order to build upon the appearance of a natural looking fuller head of hair.

How does an FUE hair transplant work

During an FUE hair transplant, one of our highly experienced doctors will extract hair follicles with a specialist extraction tool, from an area of the head where the hair is fuller, usually found at the back and side of the head (this is commonly referred to as the donor area).

The hair follicles that are removed from the donor area are then prepared under a microscope ready to be transplanted. The hair follicles are then transferred to areas of the scalp with little to no hair (this is commonly referred to as the recipient area).

With the use of a specialist surgical hair implanter, one of our highly qualified doctors will place the grafts into the scalp at a density and angle to replicate your natural hair. This will work to resemble a natural and realistic hair pattern.

Will an FUE hair transplant work for me?

An FUE hair transplant is a fantastic hair restoration treatment for those with receding or balding hair. We have worked on a variety of different cases and have produced some amazing results. However, the best candidate is one who has a good amount of donor hair (found around the side and back of the head).

Why is an FUE hair transplant the best hair loss solution?

FUE hair transplants are one of the most popular choices of hair restoration treatment currently available. Most patients opt for FUE as older treatments such as strip harvesting and FUT do not get the same result.

Our FUE hair transplants take significantly less time to heal than treatments such as FUT. During an FUE hair transplant, only individual follicles are removed and this only leaves very small puncture scars that are almost invisible. This differs to large scars that can be left by FUT hair transplants.

FUE treatment leaves you with almost no post-surgical pain or discomfort and the average recovery time is less than 7 days in most cases. Most importantly our FUE procedure will leave you with the most realistic, natural looking head of hair, as well as being one of the most permanent hair loss solutions.
