At the beginning a doctor marks an area which requires hair transplant or eyebrows reconstruction. He shaves a strip of hair at the occiput area (the donor area – back of the head > it is so-called permanent hair insensible to androgens) – it does not fall out as they do not have androgen receptors.

Hair transplant in women – FUE method description

The patient is given regional anaesthesia for the relief of pain during surgery. Next, a doctor extracts single follicular units  using a special tool. This is the most advanced and the least invasive method. Then a doctor pricks previously marked spots, sets an angle and direction of a hair, chooses its density and exact positioning after a consultation with the patient. The extracted follicular units are transplanted into the pricks and fixed with special tools.

Finally, a doctor puts a bandage. A doctor gives the patient instructions to follow after the surgery. Transplanted hair fall out and start to regrow after 3-4 months. The surgery is painless. FUE hair transplant method does not leave a scar as in case of other hair transplant methods e.g. STRIP. An important issue which needs to be emphasized is that FUE method needs to be performed by an experienced doctor.
