What is an FUE hair transplant?
A FUE hair transplant (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a minimally invasive hair loss treatment / procedure that harvests hair from anywhere on your body by removing each root individually and transplanting it into your scalp. FUE transplants are carried out follicle by follicle and in the direction of the hair growth in order to provide a naturally looking hairline. The follicles are chosen according to their density, and inserted into the hairless parts of your scalp.
While this hair restoration process can be more expensive than other hair transplant methods, such as grafting, they are a lot less invasive and can be performed without sutures or leaving large scars on your scalp. This means there’s no need for long rest periods between sessions, so your transplant procedure can be completed in a single day.
With a FUE hair transplant, we reduce the stress of undergoing multiple sessions and give you the results you’re looking for, in a much shorter time frame.
The Results of FUE Hair Transplant (Before and after)
Following an FUE hair transplant, you can expect to see hair shedding after 14 to 21 days. This is a normal part of the process and nothing to worry about. Within a few months of the procedure, you will start to see brand new hair growth, which is a sure sign the procedure is working as it should.
The vast majority of people who have an FUE hair transplant will notice around 60 percent of brand new hair growth within 6-9 months. Obviously, every patient is an individual and the amount of hair growth you see could differ slightly from the norm with more or less hair growth possible in that time frame.
Benefits of FUE Hair Transplants:
- Only the involved root cell is removed without taking any other tissue from the grafting area
- No incision or suture is required. In the donor area, small scratches (less than 1 mm diameter) occur and will heal within a few days, leaving minimal scarring that can only be seen through a microscope.
- Follicles taken from the nape of the neck can be used for the transfer.
- Hair loss can be used on eyebrows, moustaches and beards.
- Up to 5000 transplants can be taken per session thanks to the quick, effective and reliable technique.

FUE Transplant Frequently asked questions
How an FUE transplant procedure work?
The FUE transplants are carried out by professionals under a microscope, which helps to ensure absolute precision every time. Each graft is extracted as a whole with its necessary glands, and then moved to a new area. It takes slightly longer than the FUT method, but is also quicker to heal as a result, and the success is much greater. Plus, we take the follicles from areas unaffected by male pattern baldness, so the new hair won’t be affected by that either.
Is It Painful?
When the anaesthetic is injected, you might experience a sharp scratch sensation. After that point, however, you won’t feel any pain at all. The needles we use are very small, and our experts know how to keep the pain to a minimum. In the unlikely case that pain arises, we can help with that by using anaesthetic.
What Does It Feel Like Afterwards?
Most people describe the feeling afterwards as tightness at the front of the head, and perhaps a dull ache at the back. In most cases, this feeling will subside in around 48 hours, and it’s nothing to worry about, nor should you find it too distracting. A simple painkiller like paracetamol is often enough to help with this. However, you must avoid taking ibuprofen or aspirin for three days, as they can make the bruising worse.
Will I Be Put To Sleep?
No, at KSL Clinic we don’t put patients to sleep before having this procedure done. When you have an FUE procedure, it is carried out under local anaesthetic. This helps to reduce complications and delays, and makes it a more comfortable experience too. It is a simple and quick process, and for the vast majority of patients there are no complications, with the ability to return home on the same day of your procedure.
You will be awake for the entire process, during which time you are free to watch TV in the surgery room, listen to music, read or use your mobile device/tablet.
Will My Grafts Shed?
After the procedure you will go through a normal period of shedding and growth, as follows:
- Up to 6 weeks: between all to none of your hair follicles might shed during this time.
- Up to 3 months: new hairs start to come through the skin.
- Up to 6 months: more growth, and clear density.
- Up to 12 months: full results by this point. In some cases, it might take slightly longer.
When Will I See The Results?
It’s natural to want to know when you might start seeing results after your FUE transplant. The full results that you are looking for can often take up to 12 months – 18 months. In most cases, the results are evident and almost there by the 9 month mark, so you don’t have to wait too long to get an idea of how it will look.
Is The Swelling Bad?
As with anything of this nature, the swelling always varies from person to person. However, we do give you medication if necessary which works to reduce this swelling as much as possible. Sometimes the swelling and bruising can descend to the eye area due to gravity. Most patients can return to work in the same week depending on their occupation.
Why Are FUE Procedures Cheaper Abroad?
As with many medical procedures, you might be able to find cheaper alternatives in other countries. However, that does not mean you are getting the same quality as you would here. It’s important to remember that you get what you pay for, and if you find a procedure that is suspiciously cheap, that might not give you the best results. Bear in mind too that we do offer payment plans to make paying for a quality procedure more manageable.
Is This Procedure Only For Men?
No. The idea that only men have the FUE procedure is a myth. Anybody can have this done who wants to improve the density and regrowth of their hair. Of course, most of our clients are men because they are worried about male pattern baldness and hairline recession, but women can and do have this procedure done too.
Does The Transplant Look Natural?
Over the last few years there have been some incredible improvements and advancements in the technology we use behind FUE transplants. The result of these improvements is that you are bound to see some truly natural results, especially as it is being carried out by true professionals. We will make sure that you are happy with your hair transplant.
Can I Have This Procedure If I Have A Medical Condition?
The answer to this question will obviously depend upon the medical condition in question, and for that reason it is best to get in touch with us today to book a consultation. By speaking to us directly, we can ascertain whether it is possible for you to have the FUE transplant, and if so what kind of results you might be looking for, including density and so on.
