FUE (Follicle Unit Extraction)

FUE (Follicle Unit Extraction)
Minimally Invasive Hair Transplant

The FUE procedure has been used now for over 18 years internationally, suitable for both men and women.
The follicles are extracted from the donor area with a motorised punch of 0.7mm/0.8mm creating a minimally invasive extraction. The follicles are extracted one by one from the shaven donor area.

The donor area heals within 3-4 days after the procedure, making it hard for the naked eye to see the extraction sites.

At MHR Clinic we can extract 4500 to 5500 hair follicles in one procedure, donor area permitting and depending on the density of the recipient area required.
After the harvesting of the donor area, the grafts are separated into groups of one, two, three and multiples, and are ready for distribution into the receipt areas, hairline, zones A/B or the crown.

While the follicles/hairs are being counted and separated by our technicians, our client is given a lunch break and time to chill out and get ready for the next stage of the procedure.

 

The next stage of the FUE Hair Transplant consists of the design of placement of the follicles being distributed into the recipient areas at the correct depth, angle and direction creating density and natural looking results.

FACTORS THAT SHOULD BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT ARE:

  • The Patients age
  • Facial Features
  • Number of available follicles
  • Clients expectations
  • The likely future needs

DESIGN AND DISTRIBUTION OF THE HAIR FOLLICLES ARE COMPLETELY CUSTOMISED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE CLIENT FULFILLING 3 BASIC CONDITIONS:

  • Minimal impact on the donor and recipient area.
  • A natural even looking coverage.
  • Perfect result with the maximum possible density taking into account the size of the procedure, the available follicles and the patients’ needs.


Growth Period

The hairs will begin to grow through after 3 months post procedure and thicken up between the 5th and 8th month post procedure. Complete results of full growth are visible within 10-12 months.We guarantee the transplanted hairs.

Women FUE Hair Transplant

The process for Women’s FUE Hair transplant is the same as above, with the difference being that we lift the hair in the back of the donor area and preform a small line shave for extraction of the follicles. So that the women’s donor area is intact with no sign of the hair being extracted.

U-FUE (Unshaven Follicle Unit Extraction)

An Unshaven or U-FUE Hair Transplant involves careful extraction of donor hair, typically from the side or back of the head, without shaving the area – keeping the hair intact. It is then transplanted to the balding or thinning area, requiring considerable skill and time at every stage. It differs from the standard FUE hair transplant procedure which involves at least some degree of shaving. It is minimally invasive and a walk-in walk-out procedure as with the FUE Hair Transplant.

An Unshaven hair transplants are more labour intensive and require specialist skills and training, pushing the price up. MHR Clinic are able to do 1500-2000 follicles for a one-day U-FUE Procedure.

The follicles from the donor area are extracted in the same way as an FUE Hair Transplant.
