Hair Loss Surgery: Follicle Unit Extraction (FUE)
Follicle Unit Extraction (FUE) is a modern and leading hair transplant technique that has shown many successful results in patients across the world. Dr. André Nel specialises in Follicle Unit Extraction hair transplants in London, UK, and has helped many patients to achieve their goals and objectives with hair restoration.
How does the Follicle Unit Extraction technique work?
Follicle Unit Extraction is a minimally invasive procedure used to transplant hair follicles to areas where hair loss has occurred. Healthy hair follicles are harvested from safe donor areas on the scalp (where hair growth is sufficient), which will be transplanted to recipient areas. A specialised punch with a diameter of 0.8 – 1.0 mm is used to harvest single hair follicles, after which the grafts will undergo preparation before transplanted. Tiny incisions are made in the recipient area to plant the hair grafts into. Once the hair follicles have embedded and healed, new hair shafts will start to growing from these follicles within a few months.
The area from which the hair grafts were harvested will heal within a few weeks, leaving no visible scars, as the surrounding hair will cover any the tiny scars (if any) easily.
Permanent solution to hair loss
Follicle Unit Extraction is becoming the most popular treatment for hair loss, because it offers a permanent solution for hair loss. Once hair starts growing from the transplanted hair follicles, hair growth will continue naturally, and will not be affected by hair loss again. The results of a Follicle Unit Extraction hair transplant surgery are very natural, and no one will be able to tell that you have had surgery done. Once the local anaesthetic has been administered, the procedure is a pain free experience, and this will ensure that you feel nothing throughout the procedure. Hair transplant surgery is the only permanent solution for hair loss, making it the treatment of choice for many individuals who suffer from hair loss in the UK.
