FUE Hair Transplant UK

Follicular Unit Extaction is one of the 2 primary methods of obtaining follicular units (naturally occuring groups of 1 – 4 hairs) for Hair Transplantation. The Alternative method is FUT, more commonly referred to as strip harvesting.

The significance of FUE is how the Follicular Units are obtained. FUE surgeons primary tool is referred to as a Micro Punch, a circular surgical blade that varies in diameter from 0.7mm to 1.25mm. The Micro Punch enables the Follicular Units to be individually excised from the scalp, with no discomfort and without leaving the patient with a linear scar.

There are still extremely few surgeons and practices which have mastered Follicular Unit Extraction because the procedure takes considerable time, expense and education to develop the ability to a superior standard. Something we at FUE Clinics are fortunate enough to be able to provide to all our patients.

Hair Transplantation is a surgical treatment that redistributes hair follicles from one section of your head to another. There are two methods of hair transplant technique that can be used to achieve this. It is important to remember the methods involved are focused on the extraction of the hair follicles. The process of transferring the hair follicles to the recipient area is identical.

FUE Hair Transplants

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is one of the two methods of hair transplant surgery and has gained popularity over the last decade. This method removes hair follicles from the back of the scalp using a circular punch of varying diameter. The punch is designed to core out the whole follicular unit so that it can be removed safely and in perfect condition, to then be planted into the balding area.

At FUE Clinics, our hair transplant surgeons ensure the highest standard of services and are known across the country for the excellent hair transplants that they provide. With years of experience, they have perfected their implant techniques and ensure that clients receive natural looking and densely packed hair that grows.

FUT Hair Transplants

FUT is more commonly referred to as strip surgery and is the longest-serving method of hair transplant spanning back decades and is still to date the most widely performed hair transplant treatment in the world. This method involves a narrow strip of hair-bearing tissue to be removed from the back of the scalp. Once removed the wound is closed using a special trichophytic stitch to reduce tension and minimise scarring. The tissue removed is dissected under stereo-microscope into individual follicular units which will then be transplanted safely into the balding area.

Above we detail the basics of the two methods of hair transplant surgery and how the extraction is performed, highlighting the difference between the two. The technique of transplanting the hair follicles into the recipient area is identical. Anaesthetic will be locally applied to numb the area. A tiny micro-blade is then used to create lateral incision which the hair follicles harvested will then be planted in to. The incisions are created using several considerations; direction, angle, orientation and placement to ensure that the result achieved is the most natural result achievable.

Why should I choose to have a Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant surgery works by adding more hair to an area on your head that may be thinning or balding, the procedure involves taking hair from thicker parts of the scalp or other parts of the body and then grafting it to the thinning or balding section of the scalp. At some point in their lifetime, about 60% of men and 50% of women across the world will experience some form of hair loss, many people may consider using over the counter restoration products, however, hair transplants tend to have a higher success rate. The latest statistics state that around 10 to 80% of transplanted hair will fully grow back in an estimated three to four months. So if you'd like more information, contact our hair transplant surgeons today.

Overall hair transplants are considered the most successful and permanent method of hair restoration treatments. All FUE hair transplants are long-lasting, once you’ve had your hair transplant you will then notice that your hair will shed after a couple of weeks – this is a completely normal part of the procedure meaning your hair will grow back strong and healthy. You will see your hair transplant results developing in 3-6 months. It’s also important to remember that hair transplants don’t work for everyone. Hair transplants tend to be used to help restore your hair if your hair is balding or thinning or you have lost your hair because of an injury.

At FUE Clinics we are not only focused on ensuring an effective procedure, we are also dedicated to providing you with a comfortable environment, our professional team always make sure that they go above and beyond, we want you to relax and not stress about the procedure, so what are you waiting for let our team take good care of you.

Up to around half (50%) of men will experience hair loss to some degree, especially by the time that they reach 50, for many hair loss can occur earlier, some being in their 20s, 30s and late teenage years. Research has shown that the main cause for most men (95%) who experience a thin scalp, is sometimes called Androgenetic Alopecia, which is more commonly known as Male Pattern Baldness. It’s a hereditary condition that can occur when a male hormone causes hair follicles to shrink and produce abnormal hair with a shorter life. When it comes to treating male pattern baldness, patients tend to see their hair loss starting in the crown, this will be followed by thinning around the hairline and temples. However, it's important to remember that hair loss can be different depending on the individual, other causes of hair loss in men can relate to stress, disease and physical reactions to medication. It is necessary to consider how hair loss can affect confidence and the mind, at FUE Clinics we believe that this is one of the most important things to address.
