Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant is a minimally invasive procedure where individual hair follicles are taken out from the skin and implanted at a different location.
WHY THIS PROCEDURE?
The hair growth and regrowth process occur in a three-phase cycle. As people get older, the phase shortens to a point where there isn’t any hair regrowth. While some people can start losing hair much later in life, it can happen to people even in their 20s.
With the help of FUE hair transplants, it is possible to restore hair in thinning or balding patches by replacing the old follicles with new ones. After the transplant, the follicles will get the much-needed nourishment from blood vessels to grow and cover the area that was previously balding or thinning.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE PROCEDURE?
FUE hair transplant, also referred to as Follicular Unit Extraction, is a less invasive method of hair harvest extracted from a donor site. During the procedure, the surgeon will shave the area from where follicles will be extracted along with the transplant area.
A micropunch tool will be used for the removal process. The surgeon will create a series of minute incisions using a sharp tool to insert the follicles. After the insertion of the follicles, the surgeon will clean the area and bandage it for recovery.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS?
There won’t be any scars from an FUE hair transplant apart from tiny white dots at the location where the follicles were extracted. Some of the rare side effects that you may notice include –
- Swelling and pain
- Crust formation
- Tingling or numbness
- Transplanted hair doesn’t blend in with the hair around it
- Thinning or balding continues after transplant

WHAT RESULTS TO EXPECT?
The recovery is pretty quick, where discomfort and swelling are expected to last around 3 days. You can start noticing a difference in your hair thickness and quality in 3-4 months.
WHO NEEDS THIS PROCEDURE?
The best candidate for an FUE hair transplant would be an individual who has thinning or balding spots but has enough hair in the body for the transplant procedure.
