FUE Technique hair transplant is a follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a type of hair transplant done by taking individual hair follicles from your skin and moving them to another part of your body where hair’s thinner or absent.
FUE has become more popular than the follicular unit transplantation (FUT) procedure, which led to the “hair plugs” look.
Surgeons use micropunches to extract single follicles and move them, leaving behind almost no signs of extraction
How is hair transplantation with FUE Technique method applied?
The first step of the treatment is the preparation for the operation. It takes approximately one hour to prepare the patient. Photos of the patient are taken; hair is shingled shorter than 1 millimeter and the targeted area is determined. Donor site anesthetized with local anesthetics.
Hair follicles removed from the donor site and it takes approximately three hours. Removed follicles are soaked into a special solution which is +4 or +10 degree. Targeted transplantation area is anaesthetized and canals in which hair follicles will be placed are opened with the help of special grooving chisels. Open canals are filled with hair follicles and it takes three hours. The whole operation takes six or nine hours

Each individual who do not have a serious health problem can receive this treatment. Type of your hair loss, your hair analysis and your donor site analysis will be made by your surgeon in order to determine your suitability to receive this treatment
What to expect after a FUE Technique hair transplant
Recovery from FUE is quick. You may have some swelling or discomfort for about 3 days.
Here are some aftercare instructions your doctor may give you:
- Don’t wash your hair or shower for at least 3 days.
- Use gentle, unscented shampoos for a few weeks once you start washing your hair.
- Take a couple of days off work to help speed up healing.
- Don’t comb or brush your new hair for at least 3 weeks.
- Don’t wear hats, beanies, or other clothing that goes over your head until your doctor says it’s OK.
- Don’t do any strenuous physical activity for at least a week.
Some hairs may fall out during the healing process. This is normal. You’ll probably start to notice a difference after 3 to 4 months.
Depending on the health of your transplanted hair, your hair may not grow back as thick as expected.
