What is the FUE hair transplantation?

FUE hair transplant is a modern and minimally invasive method to restore the hair’s natural growth cycle and stop its loss. The transplant is performed under local anesthesia, which increases its safety even more. Specialists take individual hair follicles from the back of the head (test area) and implant them into the recipient zone. The FUE method (FollicularUnitsExtraction) is therefore an alternative to other methods of stopping baldness – diet, supplements, etc.

The big advantage of the FUE hair transplant procedure is the fact that it is not limited to the head only and can also be performed, among others, for example on the beard, eyebrow or eyelashes. It also allows hair to be transplanted into the scar, thus effectively reducing the problem of alopecia and unsightly birthmarks. The FUE technique leaves virtually no scars and unsightly birthmarks on the transplanted skin.

FUE hair transplantation can be performed in the treatment of alopecia resulting from many different factors – androgenic diseases, alopecia areata, or one caused by stress. This technique is distinguished by high versatility, thanks to which it is performed on both women and men, regardless of age.

FUE hair transplantation is the most modern method in the world of hair transpalnts, because it allows you to transport the hair follicles from the donor area to the places where the problem of baldness occurs. During this procedure, a small point needle is used, with which micro-punctures are made in the form of the so-called punches. As a result, any risk of damaging your hair is reduced to a minimum.

Thanks to this modern, minimally invasive method, the doctor can extract individual hair follicles with a small tissue surrounding them. Then, it assesses the collected material and prepares it for placement in the collection area. During the procedure, the patient receives local anesthesia, so he does not have to worry about the risk of possible complications.

It is also worth noting that the specialist does not use a scalpel, which increases the precision of the actions performed.


Indications for surgery

FUE hair transplantation is intended primarily for patients who suffer from androgenetic alopecia. This problem mainly affects men, but is also increasingly observed on women. It is the source of many complexes, and even depression and withdrawal from social life. It is very important that Patients with androgenetic alopecia learn the cause of hair loss and eliminate it. The FUE transplant leaves virtually no scars on the skin, which is why it works well for people who want to wear short hairstyles. Specialists also recommend the FUE technique in patients with scars, because it allows transplantation of hair follicles and covering unsightly changes.

FUE hair transplant is used to stop hair follicles from falling out and to supplement them in both women and men. The technique is used in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia in the case of people who want to thicken their hair and get rid of problematic bends. Due to the fact that this procedure is not very invasive, it can be performed in patients of any age group. An indication for FUE hair transplantation is also the desire to thicken the hair in a safe way, which will not interfere with the patient’s body too much. FUE transplant is also used in people who have lost a large part of their hair as a result of an accident or injury. This technique is often chosen by patients with an active lifestyle due to the short recovery time.


Contraindications for this procedure

However, it is worth remembering that hair transplantation is a procedure that is not performed in patients with advanced diabetes, scalp inflammation, coagulation disorders and unregulated blood pressure. The doctor will also advise against FUE transplantation in the case of pregnant women and during breastfeeding. Contraindications also apply to taking anticoagulants and active skin lesions in the treated areas.

FUE hair transplantation also precedes the treatment of alopecia, as the procedure itself is not a way to combat the cause of hair loss. That is why pre-transplant qualification is so important, especially in patients who are struggling with some diseases. Contraindications also include neoplastic diseases, skin inflammation, hormonal disorders and extensive baldness. The final decision is made by the doctor based on the interview and test results.

The course of the procedure

Before starting the procedure, the doctor always refers the patient for a consultation, during which possible contraindications can be ruled out. The specialist can also discuss the patient’s health and, if necessary, order the necessary tests. He also examines the scalp and checks the phase of the current problem of baldness. The doctor also determines the past illnesses of the patient and his family. A medical history is very important as some medical conditions (e.g. alopecia areata or androgenetic alopecia) are inherited from other family members. In order to enjoy a better result of the procedure, the doctor may also order blood tests and a trichoscope test during the consultation. Thanks to this, it will examine the scalp and hair magnified, which in turn will allow to effectively detect the cause of baldness and eliminate it.

After qualifying the patient positively, the doctor gives local anesthesia to eliminate any unpleasant pain during the procedure. The specialist will shave the Patient’s hair off the treated part in order to collect the follicles for transplantation. Then the collected follicles are implanted in the receiving area, which is also subjected to anesthesia. During the FUE transplant, the doctor uses a thin needle, which additionally minimizes the risk of unpleasant pain.

The last stage of the treatment is to apply a special ointment to the patient’s skin, which improves the wound healing process. The doctor will also provide the necessary information on the care of the skin after the transplant and any recommendations.

Convalescence after surgery

Patients must be careful about the transplant site during the first 2 weeks after the procedure. This will avoid damage to the implanted hair follicles. Sometimes, for 3-4 days after the treatment, the skin may experience a slight swelling or hair loss after 1-2 months. However, these are not a cause for concern, but a natural body response that will subside on its own.

Convalescence after the procedure does not take long – you can return to your daily activities on the second day. However, small scabs or redness may remain on the skin up to 2 weeks after the transplant. It is very important that patients protect the treated area with a hood or a non-compressive cap. It is recommended to avoid excessive rubbing of the scalp as it can significantly weaken the transplanted follicles. The skin must be washed with gentle movements and non-allergenic preparations recommended by the doctor. Within a few weeks after the transplant, it is also recommended to refrain from intense physical activity, use of the sauna and swimming pool.
