Follicular Hair Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant is a minimally invasive procedure in Singapore whereby groups of hair follicles are harvested from ‘donor areas’ and transplanted onto balding ‘recipient areas’ of the scalp. As the only permanent solution for hair loss available today, FUE Hair Transplant offers clients a reassuring 90% success rate.
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplants restore hair by replacing old and defunct hair follicles with healthy follicles that are still able to grow hair. Once harvested and transplanted, these new follicles will begin growing hair in previously thinning or balding areas on the scalp.
The main goal of this procedure is to cause hair in donor areas to regrow and look thicker and fuller.
As FUE technology significantly reduces the risk of developing an unnatural ‘hair plug’ look, it has become more popular than FUT.
Additionally, FUE, unlike FUT, does not cause large, linear strips of noticeable scarring. Whether you are balding or have thinning hair, as long as you have sufficient hair to use for a transplant, you are a good candidate for FUE Hair Transplant. Conversely, those who do not have enough healthy, dense donor hair might not be able to achieve optimal results from the procedure.
The graft survival rate for FUE ranges from 90 to 99% (It is 75% for FUT).
This precise and innovative method causes less trauma to hair follicles, thus producing fuller, thicker, and healthier hair.
Unlike with older methods, there is little pain after an FUE procedure.
With the use of local anaesthesia, most clients either report that drugstore pain-alleviating medicines are more than enough for staying comfortable after their procedure, or zero pain at all.
FUT helps regrow hair, but at the cost of a noticeable and linear scar; With FUE, there is no scar.
If you’d like to wear your hair short, FUE is an exceptional solution, as extraction sites during the procedure are miniscule (1mm and below).
Typically, a FUE Hair Transplant takes roughly 6 to 9 hours, with a lunch break in between.
The total time required for each procedure depends on the number of grafts needed. Most individuals need 500 to 2,000 grafts, or up to 3,000 grafts in cases of male pattern baldness.
If you have been suffering from hair loss and are ready to recapture and redefine what beauty means to you, who better to get help from than an expert artisan?
All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. The procedure should be carried in a safe environment and in an accredited clinic. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome could occur occasionally. Major complications are rare.
