An FUE is a state-of-the-art procedure in which a fine surgical tool is used to extract follicular units one at a time. The device makes small circular punches around the follicular unit and pulls it from the scalp. Small punctures are made in the bald area and the follicular units are individually placed in the small tissue openings.
What is the recovery process?
After an FUE hair transplant, most patients can return to normal activities within two days. However, vigorous exercise should be avoided for about a week. Patients can expect some redness and mild discomfort of the donor and recipient sites. These symptoms are temporary and the small transplant wounds typically heal within 1-2 weeks.
Who is the ideal candidate for FUE?
The ideal candidate has bald areas and donor site with enough healthy hair extract. A hair transplant can ameliorate the aesthetic effects of hair loss, but patients should be realistic about outcomes. A FUG may be more appropriate for those looking to achieve hair density faster with a single procedure.
