What is a FUE Hair Transplant?

FUE hair transplantation is a procedure designed to combat a receding hairline, hair loss, bald spots and a thinning crown by transplanting natural hair follicles from denser areas of your scalp to areas where hair is thinning.

This technique is favoured for its precision and effectiveness, making it a popular choice for those looking for natural-looking results without visible scars, although individual results may vary and there are associated risks.

Viewing FUE hair transplant before and after photos can also provide a clear visual representation of possible changes, though it is important to set realistic expectations, as outcomes can differ based on individual characteristics.

Who is a Good Candidate for Hair Transplant Surgery?

Determining who is a good candidate for hair transplant surgery, particularly with the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique, involves several key factors.

These factors help ensure that the results meet expectations and align with the individual’s goals for hair restoration.

  • Healthy Donor Hair Supply: There needs to be adequate density in the donor areas - especially the back and sides of the scalp. The area must also have enough healthy hair follicles that can be transplanted to thinning or balding areas.
  • Quality of Hair: Strong and resilient hair follicles are more likely to survive the transplant process and successfully grow in the new area.
  • Scalp Flexibility: FUE requires extracting individual hair follicles directly from the scalp and thus, a more flexible scalp will make the extraction easier and more efficient.
  • Hair Loss Type and Severity: FUE hair transplant is most effective for individuals with pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia and is less suitable for those with diffuse unpatterned alopecia or other conditions that cause widespread thinning.
  • Hair Characteristics: For example, curly or wavy hair can cover larger areas more effectively than straight hair and thicker hair strands provide better coverage.
  • Age and Hair Loss Stability: Ideal candidates are those who have had stable hair loss for several years. Hair loss that is rapidly progressing or predictable may not yield optimal results.

A detailed consultation with a specialist is essential to conduct a thorough examination of the hair and scalp, discuss medical history and any underlying health issues and provide guidance on the potential outcomes and realistic expectations from the procedure.

There are three steps to a FUE hair transplant procedure, harvesting, implanting and post-procedure care

How is the FUE Hair Transplant Procedure Performed?

Here is a detailed breakdown of how the FUE hair transplant procedure is performed:

Harvesting

The actual procedure starts with the preparation of the donor area which is usually at the back of the head where hair density is highest and less prone to balding.

  • Shaving: The donor area is shaved to facilitate accurate and efficient removal of hair follicles.
  • Extraction: Using a specialised extraction tool, individual follicles are carefully removed one at a time.
  • Follicle Storage: Once extracted, follicles are kept in a controlled environment to preserve viability until implantation.

Implanting

  • Preparation: Similar to the donor area, the recipient site is usually shaved and cleaned for the transplanted hair.
  • Implantation: Each extracted follicle is meticulously implanted into tiny incisions made in the recipient area. These incisions are made to mimic the natural growth direction of hair to achieve natural results.
  • Securing the Grafts: After the hair grafts are placed, they are left exposed to form scabs which naturally secure the grafts.

Post-Procedure Care

Proper aftercare is necessary for the success of a FUE transplant in Sydney:

  • Immediate Care: Patients are advised to keep the scalp dry and avoid touching or washing the transplanted area for at least 72 hours.
  • Long-Term Care: Follow-up visits are scheduled to monitor the healing process and specific instructions for washing and caring for your hair will be provided to ensure optimal results.

Are There Any Risks with FUE Hair Transplant in Australia?

While FUE hair transplants are generally considered safe and effective, like any medical procedure they do carry some risks such as:

  • Infection and Scarring
  • Pain and Swelling
  • Folliculitis: Also known as inflammation of the hair follicles
  • Numbness or Tingling
  • Graft Failure

During a full consultation, our hair transplant experts will discuss these and what to expect from your treatment.
