In FUE hair transplant surgery, individual micro-follicular units are carefully harvested from the donor site and then placed into micro-slits, typically of millimeter size, created in the recipient area. This method is most suitable for smaller hair transplant procedures, typically involving 1000-1500 grafts.

However, it’s important to note that FUE carries certain limitations. The follicles are harvested using a blind tubular punch, and since a follicular unit contains multiple follicles with varying directions, there is a higher risk of damaging one or more hair roots within the harvested follicular unit, as well as the surrounding follicles. Consequently, fewer hairs may grow from the transplanted follicles compared to the FUT hair transplant technique.

With the FUE technique, it is generally possible to harvest up to 1500-2000 follicles from the safe and permanent donor zone. If a greater number of follicles is required, it may be necessary to extend the extraction area beyond this zone. This expansion can often lead to a loss of transplanted hairs a couple of years after the procedure. Therefore, we do not typically recommend the FUE technique when a larger number of grafts are needed.

It is scarless technique (because scars of microfollicular harvest are not apparently visible), so, beneficial when a person wants very short hairstyle or shaved hairs on back.

Also said that FUE hair transplant surgery is a painless technique, but it is not a real advantages of FUE, as you will be given local anesthesia before and pain medicines after a procedure in both FUE & FUT. Considering this, with us,both Techniques are pain-free.

Follicles are being harvested with a blind tubular punch, while a Follicular unit contains multiple follicles and their directions are different. So, chances of a transaction of harvested hair roots (damage to one or more hair root among harvested follicular unit) as well as surrounding follicle is much high with this technique. So less number of hair grow from transplanted follicles than FUT hair transplant Technique.

With this technique, maximum we can harvest up to 1500-2000 follicles from a safe-permanent zone. If we have to get mare number of follicles, we need to go outside it. Transplantation with such technique is a very common reason for a loss of transplanted hairs couple of year after the procedure. This is a reason why we don’t recommend FUE technique where more number of grafts is required.

The Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique is a popular method for hair transplantation known for its minimally invasive nature and relatively low risk profile. However, like any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications associated with FUE. It’s important to discuss these with your surgeon before undergoing the procedure. Some of the risks associated with FUE include:

  1. Scarring: While FUE is often chosen for its minimal scarring compared to FUT (strip method), tiny puncture scars may still develop in the donor area. These are typically less noticeable than the linear scar associated with FUT.

  2. Pain and Discomfort: After the procedure, patients may experience mild pain, discomfort, or tenderness in both the donor and recipient areas. This is usually temporary and manageable with pain medications.

  3. Bleeding: Some bleeding can occur during and after the procedure, but it is typically minimal and controlled by your surgeon.

  4. Infection: There is a risk of infection, although it is relatively low. Surgeons take strict sterilization measures to minimize this risk.

  5. Numbness: Temporary numbness or loss of sensation in the donor and recipient areas can occur due to nerve damage during surgery. This usually resolves over time, but in rare cases, it may be permanent.

  6. Swelling: Swelling in the forehead or around the eyes may occur post-surgery, but it usually subsides within a few days.

  7. Shock Loss: Temporary hair loss, known as shock loss, can happen in both the donor and recipient areas after the procedure. This typically resolves within a few months as new hair growth begins.

  8. Unnatural Hair Growth: In some cases, the transplanted hair may grow in an unnatural direction or pattern. This can be managed with careful planning and precise graft placement.

  9. Poor Growth: Not all transplanted hairs may grow successfully. The success of hair growth depends on several factors, including the surgeon’s skill, the quality of donor hair, and individual factors.

After your hair transplantation procedure, our priority is your comfort and recovery. We will provide you with pain relief medication and antibiotics to prevent infections. Our experienced surgeons are available for any questions or concerns you may have during your recovery.

To ensure the success of your transplant, please follow these guidelines:

  1. Medication: Take the prescribed medications as directed to manage pain and prevent infections.

  2. Hair Care: Be gentle with the newly transplanted hairs. Avoid any friction or shearing in the treated area. We’ll provide you with a protective cap to shield your head from dust.

  3. Resuming Activities: You can resume your regular activities, including office work, the day after the procedure. However, it’s essential to avoid strenuous activities, prolonged sun exposure, and exercise for the next 15 days.

  4. Hair Washing: You can start washing your hair 2 days after the procedure, following our instructions.

  5. Hair Nourishment: Begin applying hair nourishing solutions as advised by our hair transplant surgeon.

  6. Hair Shedding: Expect the transplanted hairs in the recipient area to fall off gradually over the next couple of weeks. The roots, placed under the skin, will remain. New hair growth from these roots typically starts after 3-4 months. Initially, the hair may appear sparse, but this is normal. Hair density increases gradually, reaching its maximum around 10-12 months post-transplant.

  7. Long-Term Growth: Rest assured that the transplanted hairs will grow naturally throughout your life, behaving as they did in their original donor site.

Your journey to fuller, natural-looking hair is underway. Follow these guidelines, and don’t be concerned about hair density in the early stages. With time and patience, your newly transplanted hair will flourish, giving you the results you desire.
