How does FUE Transplant work?

FUE is a hair transplant procedure that involves removing hair from the donor area and transplanting them into the thinning areas. Here’s a breakdown of how the procedure works:

  1. Preparation: Before the procedure begins, the hair in the donor area (usually the back of the head) is trimmed to about 1mm in length. The donor and recipient areas are made numb.
  2. Extraction: Using a small, handheld device called a micro-punch, individual hairs are removed from the donor area. The micro-punch creates a tiny circular incision around the hair follicle, which is then gently extracted. The extracted follicles are placed in a special solution that helps keep them alive and healthy.
  3. Implantation: Once enough hairs have been extracted, the doctor creates tiny incisions in the recipient area where the new hair will be implanted. Each hair is carefully placed into these incisions, taking into account the natural direction and angle of the surrounding hair for a natural-looking result.
  4. Recovery: After the procedure, the patient’s treated area may be sore and tender for a few days. The newly transplanted hair may fall out within the first few weeks, but this is normal and temporary. The transplanted follicles will begin to grow new hair within a few months, and the final result should be visible after about a year.

When can I notice new hair growth?

After undergoing a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant, it’s natural to wonder when you can expect to see hair growth. Here’s a breakdown of what to expect:

  1. Shedding: After the procedure, the transplanted hair follicles may shed within the first two to three weeks. This is a normal and temporary process and does not mean the transplant has failed.
  2. Initial growth: After the shedding phase, the transplanted follicles will begin to grow new hair. Initial growth is typically seen between three to four months after the procedure, but it can take up to six months for some individuals.
  3. Continued growth: Hair growth will continue for up to a year or more post-procedure. The rate of growth varies depending on the individual’s hair growth cycle and the density of transplanted follicles.
  4. Final result: The final result can be expected after a year or more. The transplanted hair will blend with the natural hair and create a natural-looking hairline.

It’s important to note that the timeline for hair growth can vary from person to person. Some individuals may experience faster or slower growth, and the density of hair growth may also differ. It’s essential to follow the post-operative care instructions provided by your surgeon to ensure optimal healing and hair growth.

What to avoid after FUE Hair Transplant

After undergoing a FUE hair transplant, it’s important to take proper care to ensure optimal healing and hair growth. Here are some things to avoid after the procedure:

  1. Touching or scratching: It’s important to avoid touching or scratching as this can cause infection, dislodge the transplanted follicles, and slow down the healing process.
  2. Vigorous exercise: Strenuous activities such as running, weightlifting, or other high-intensity workouts should be avoided for at least two weeks post-procedure. This can cause sweating, which can lead to complications and affect the healing process.
  3. Exposure to direct sunlight: Sun exposure can damage the newly transplanted hair follicles and cause them to die. It’s recommended to avoid direct sunlight and wear a hat or head covering when going outside.
  4. Using hair products: Hair products such as gel, hairspray, or styling wax should be avoided for at least two weeks post-procedure. These products can clog the hairs and cause infection.
  5. Sleeping on the stomach: Sleeping on the stomach can put pressure and dislodge the transplanted hairs. It’s recommended to sleep on the back or side for at least the first few nights post-procedure.

By avoiding these activities and taking proper care after an FUE hair transplant, you can ensure optimal healing and hair growth for natural-looking results.
