What is the FUE hair transplant method?

FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction and is a minimally invasive form of hair transplant surgery. The basic principle of FUE surgery involves the surgical extraction of individual hair follicles, or groups up to four follicles, from areas of your head where hair grows stronger, and these are transplanted into areas where the hair is thinning, or virtually absent.

Why have a FUE hair transplant?

There can be several reasons which have led you down the path of considering having a hair transplant. More often than not, hair loss or hair thinning is genetic. Even though hair loss is often associated as part of the aging process, it is not unusual for hair to start thinning while in you are the twenties. This something that can affect your self-confidence.

It may also be the case where you had to undergo an operation or been involved in an accident, which has let to scarring and therefore areas without any hair growth. The FUE method of hair transplantation is an ideal solution for this problem.

The Advantages of the FUE hair transplant method

Part of this procedure’s popularity comes not just from its effectiveness, but because the procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic. In addition, the procedure is classified as a permanent treatment for hair loss, so once the operation has been performed, there should be no need for any repeat procedures on the treated area.

Having a hair transplant is also cost-effective in the long term. There is no need to buy expensive hair treatment products to combat hair loss once you have had your hair transplant. Also, you don’t have to wait months for the results to appear. Within a couple of months of your hair transplant you should have a natural-looking and noticeably fuller head of hair.
