In FUE - your surgeon, working with a group of 3 technician nurses, applies a micro precision extraction tool to each root. Each graft is cherry picked from donor area in a calculated manner so that hair grows back naturally without disturbing the overall density. The implantation is done respecting the direction and angle of the hair growth, following your natural hairline. The process is repeated until the hair transplant surgeon has enough hair for the planned restoration. The area heals over in about a week leaving tiny white scars that hidden in the hair at the back and sides of the scalp. This will largely disappear after a year.
Under local anesthesia tiny holes are made in the balding area of the scalp using a fine needle. Each follicle is then planted into a hole, where they grow into permanent healthy hair.
1, 2 or 3 follicles are planted in a way intended to determine the direction of hair growth, as well as to provide an ideal number of follicles. This is essential to enable the natural and aesthetic appearance when the hair grows because a transplant performed with the same number of grafts without a method may not yield the expected appearance.
It will take approximately 3 to 4 months for new hair to start growing. The natural hair will continue to mature in colour and body for up to 18 months after your surgical procedure. There will be no visible scarring after a year. If the hair is completely shaved again by choice, minor white dots may remain depending on your skin type.
The overall result will reflect your own natural hair before any hair loss, the transplanted hair will be permanent because it is obtained from genetically non-hair loss coded area.
No, the procedure is relatively painless and involves only a little discomfort when applying the local anaesthetic.
Two Weeks to go:
Avoid aspirin, anti-inflammatories, or other anticoagulants. Omega-3 capsules, fish oil and herbal teas including green tea (but not normal black tea).
The day before:
On the day:
Shampoo your hair, but refrain from using any perfumed products. The surgery should be performed on a full stomach, so feel free to have a good breakfast.
The FUE technique involves multiple round dot-like incisions scattered diffusely on the scalp. With the FUT method, there is one scar in a rectangular frame which remains under the donor area forever. As it guarantees scar free results - Group Florence Nightingale only use the FUE technique.
After the operation Your hair transplant does not require hospitalisation so you may leave after the operation. The back and sides of the head are covered by a medical dressing which you'll return to have checked the next day. Your surgeon will judge if it's the right time to have your first hair wash and this will be conducted at the clinic by our team. Because the transplanted area is exposed, the first wash is performed with a special foaming antiseptic agent. You'll be shown how to wash your hair carefully while the transplant matures and the small scabs that form as part of the healing process start to fall off naturally.
For at least the first week you should of course do your best to avoid anything that might rub or bump against the transplant area. Avoid using a head covering, such as a hat or scarf.
Some simple steps will help you get the best results from your Hair Transplant:
If these instructions are followed, after 10 days the hair transplant is almost undetectable and your newly transplanted hair will begin to grow at around 10 weeks. Your hair will be long enough to be combed in about 6 months and, in most cases, will be fully grown in 1 year.
