What is No Scar Hair Transplant FUE?

Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) is a more recent hair transplantation method compared to Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). This minimally invasive technique involves transferring individual hair follicles from a donor region of the scalp, which has a higher density of hair, to the problematic area experiencing hair loss or thinning. The procedure consists of carefully selecting and transplanting individual follicular units, ensuring a more natural and effective result.

How is FUE procedure conducted?

An FUE hair transplant is a meticulous procedure that involves several steps to ensure optimal results. To help you understand how the FUE process is conducted at the Tsilosani Hair Transplantation Institute, here are the key steps involved:

1. Consultation and evaluation

Before undergoing the procedure, you will have a consultation with a hair transplant specialist who will assess your scalp, hair density, and pattern of hair loss. This evaluation helps determine the best course of action and the number of grafts required for a successful transplantation.

2. Preparation

On the day of the procedure, the donor and recipient areas are prepared. The donor area is typically shaved to facilitate the extraction of follicular units, while the recipient area is marked to guide the placement of the transplanted grafts.

3. Anesthesia

Local anesthesia is administered to both the donor and recipient areas to ensure a comfortable and pain-free experience during the procedure.

4. Extraction

The hair transplant surgeon uses specialized instruments to carefully extract individual follicular units from the donor area. This is done with precision to avoid damaging the follicles and to ensure successful transplantation.

5. Graft preparation

After extraction, the follicular units are carefully inspected and prepared under a microscope to ensure their integrity and viability for transplantation.

6. Implantation

Once the grafts are prepared, the surgeon makes tiny incisions in the recipient area and meticulously inserts the follicular units one by one. This process is carried out with precision to ensure natural-looking growth patterns and optimal hair density.

7. Post-operative care

After the procedure, you will receive detailed instructions for post-operative care to ensure proper healing and optimal results. This may include medications to manage discomfort, as well as guidance on hair washing and daily activities.

By understanding the FUE hair transplant process and the steps taken at the Tsilosani Hair Transplantation Institute, you can make an informed decision about whether this procedure is right for you.

Is FUE completely Scarless?

Although FUE hair transplant does not result in a linear scar like the FUT method, it does leave small, circular scars at the donor site. The size and visibility of these scars depend on various factors such as the surgeon’s skill and experience, the size of the punch used for follicle extraction, and the patient’s skin healing capabilities. In certain cases, these scars may be almost imperceptible, while in others, they may be more noticeable. Thus, referring to FUE as a “scarless” procedure is not entirely precise, and patients should be informed about the possibility of scarring before undergoing the treatment.

Pros of FUE Hair Transplant Surgery

R
No Scar

A significant advantage of the FUE hair transplant technique is that it does not leave a linear scar like other methods. Instead, it may result in minor, dotted scarring or depigmentation in the donor area. However, these marks are typically not detectable to the naked eye, even when the head is closely shaved, making it a more aesthetically appealing option for many patients.

R
Reduced post-operative discomfort

FUE procedures result in less postoperative discomfort since they are performed without cuts or sutures. This ensures a smoother postoperative period with minimal complications.

R
Transplantation in cases of low donor density

FUE allows for hair transplantation even when there is low hair density in the donor area. This is possible by individually harvesting grafts from the donor region or utilizing Body Hair Transplant (BHT) to source follicles from other body areas such as the chest, beard, legs/arms, and pubic region.

R
Higher follicular unit density

During an FUE hair transplantation, the grafts typically consist of a higher number of follicles. This is because the surgeon can selectively target high-density, multi-follicle units containing 3-4 hair roots. Studies indicate that the hair-to-follicle ratio following an FUE procedure performed by an experienced surgeon is 3, compared to a ratio of 2 in the FUT method.

Cons of FUE Hair Transplant Surgery

O
Fewer grafts per session

In a single FUE session, the number of grafts transplanted is generally lower compared to a FUT procedure.

O
Increased transection frequency

The likelihood of follicle transection during an FUE procedure is higher than in a FUT procedure. In a worst-case scenario, 10-15% or more of the follicles may undergo transection, while in a FUT procedure, this number can be as low as 3%.

O
Greater stress on grafts

During an FUE procedure, grafts experience more stress due to the reduced amount of connective tissue surrounding them. This necessitates extra care for individual hairs to ensure their survival and successful growth.

Tips for Choosing a Hair Transplant Surgeon

Selecting the right hair transplant surgeon is essential for achieving natural-looking and long-lasting results. Consider the following tips to help you find a qualified and experienced professional:

1. Verify their credentials

Ensure the surgeon is board-certified in hair restoration and has extensive experience performing FUE and other hair transplant techniques.

2. Examine before and after photos:

Request to see before and after images of previous patients to assess the surgeon’s skills and the quality of their results.

3. Read reviews:

Browse online reviews and testimonials from past patients to evaluate their satisfaction and experiences with the surgeon.

4. Schedule a consultation:

Arrange a meeting with the surgeon to discuss your goals, expectations, and any questions you may have. A competent surgeon should be able to offer personalized advice and recommendations based on your unique needs and situation.

Determining if FUE is appropriate for you

The suitability of the Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) hair transplantation procedure depends on a doctor’s assessment. During the consultation, the doctor will evaluate the extent of your hair loss and determine if FUE can successfully provide the desired results. FUE procedures are typically performed when the hair loss being treated is below a certain threshold, ensuring that operations do not last several hours and can be completed efficiently. The procedure is most effective in treating male pattern baldness by moving hair from denser areas at the back and sides of the head to the front. FUE can also be successfully applied to women experiencing similar hair loss patterns. For cases requiring 2500+ grafts, the Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) method may be more effective. FUE might also be recommended by your doctor for various other situations. To receive a personalized assessment, schedule a consultation with the Akaki Tsilosani Hair Transplantation Institute.

Frequently Asked Questions

DOES MY HAIR FALL OUT AFTER A HAIR TRANSPLANT?

It is normal for the initial hair to fall out shortly after the transplant, so there is no need for concern. The transplanted grafts remain intact, and over the subsequent months, the hair will begin to grow back, allowing you to see the results. Once the hair has regrown, the transplanted hair is permanent and does not fall out.

By utilizing our long hair transplantation technique, you can even get a preview of the results immediately following the procedure.

HOW LONG AFTER THE HAIR TRANSPLANT WILL I START SEEING THE RESULTS?

You can anticipate seeing initial results a few months after the hair transplant procedure. Nevertheless, it typically takes 6-9 months to observe the majority of the results, and up to 12 months to witness the final outcome.

This timeline is due to the time needed for the newly grafted hair to adapt to its new position, establish connections with blood vessels, heal, and begin producing the keratin necessary for hair growth. While it may seem like an extended period, it is essential for the healthy development of the transplanted hair. Although individual cases may vary, 6-9 months is the generally accepted average time frame for most hair transplant patients.

DOES A HAIR TRANSPLANT HURT?

Hair transplant procedures are performed using local anesthetics, which prevent patients from experiencing pain during the process. Some individuals might feel mild pressure or discomfort, but in most instances, there is no pain during the procedure. Despite the operation taking several hours, continuous sedation and the presence of a professional team ensure a comfortable experience with minimal discomfort.

In the post-operative period, any pain experienced is typically minimal and can be managed with simple painkillers, such as Ibuprofen. Most patients may encounter mild pressure, slight swelling, and light discomfort for a week following the operation. However, these symptoms are expected and usually subside shortly afterward.
