FUE Hair Transplant

FUE Hair Transplant is one of the newest and the most efficient Hair Transplant method to get maximum number of grafts (hair follicles). It’s based on the extraction one by one of the hair grafts from the donor area (an area of denser hair growth which is resistant to the factors of hair loss and typically located on the back or side of the head) , using micro punches (06 – 07 mm), and transfer them to the bald (empty) areas by special tools without leaving any scars as in the old methods used where hair transplantation involves removal of a part of the scalp followed by bandages and surgical threads that have left pain and scars. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is considered painless and total healing takes place after 7-8 days of hair transplantation.

With FUE Hair Transplant gives patients permanent, natural-looking results.

With FUE Hair Transplantation, we can get 4500 – 5000 hair grafts (10.000 – 15.000 hairs) in one session.

This stage is the most critical one for having natural results out of hair transplant. It is the part that demands most experience, aesthetic and technical skills. That’s why only the doctors are doing it in Este Future. 

They open the canals with a very thin –diameter (0.4-0.5 mm) micro-drlling tips (smaller than the graft diameter) and the canal angle should be compatible with the hair growth angle.

This stage takes between 40 – 90 minutes in which the patient is lying on his back.

FUE Hair Transplant Procedure

First, you should know that the FUE hair transplant is a free-pain procedure and it’s always done under local anesthesia So you will be awake during all the operation, you will be able to read a book, to listen to music, to watch TV or even to eat a meal. Furthermore, the medical staff will be there to take care of you and assist you whenever it is needed.

The hair transplant process at Este Future is summarized in the following stages:

Grafts extraction

The follicles will be extracted from the donor area (the backside of the head ) which is not affected by the hormone responsible for hair loss in the rest of the head (DHT). The grafts extraction stage begins by the local anesthetizing. This process is performed by using a small round punch excision of 1mm or less in diameter which produces very small, invisible and quick healing holes. These holes quickly heal the next day without leaving any disturbing effect.
This stage takes 2 – 2.5 hours depending on the number of grafts to be extracted.

The number of follicles that can be obtained is proportional to the intensity of the donor area.

After the extraction, the medical team sterilize and cover the donor area.
The number of grafts that can be gathered depends on the intensity of the hair donor area.
At the end of this stage, they keep the extracted grafs in a nutritious solution to keep them in an appropriate environment until they are cultivated.

Implanting the grafts

This is the last step of Hair Transplantation. This stage takes 2 – 3.5 hours depending on the number of implants.

In this stage, the medical staff of Este Future place technically the grafts onto canals in the right direction to allow that the epidermis faces upward compared to the exterior surface of the transplanted area.

They place the hair follicles in the front line to give the natural appearance as not it is recommended to grow vesicles that give 2-3 hair in the front line because it gives an abnormal appearance and it seems clear that the patient has performed hair transplant.
