What is Hair Transplantation?
Hair transplantation is a surgical process in which hair follicles are removed from the “donor site” and placed on the “receiver site,” a region of the body that is bald or thinning out. The procedure is mainly used to treat male pattern baldness. In this minimally invasive procedure, grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding, (like the back of the head) are transplanted to the bald scalp.
Elite Hair & Skin Studio offers Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) for hair transplantation surgery. FUE is a newer method of harvesting donor hair follicles for transplantation. In this method, individual hair follicles are extracted directly from the back or side of your head with a special punch tool. The extracted follicles are then transplanted to the recipient site on your head. One advantage of FUE over FUT is that it does not leave a linear scar at the donor site.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a revolutionary advancement in the way that individual hair follicles are harvested for transplant.
The former procedure required removing a strip of skin from the donor area at the back of the head, along with its follicles. When this area was sewn back together it would leave a continuous scar across the back of the patient’s scalp. FUE completely eliminates the scalpel and associated scars from hair transplant procedures.
The surgeon can artistically transplant a single follicle from the donor location, which can be found on the side or back of the head, into the patient’s balding or thinning area using modern FUE techniques. With a pair of fine jeweler’s forceps and a specially made tool that is barely 1mm wide, the follicle is extracted.

What is the procedure like?
Let’s take the method of follicular unit extraction as an example, and go through the various steps a patient would experience during a session:
It cannot be used to cover up large bald spots like Norwood VI or even IV. It works well for fixing or concealing tiny areas. In this procedure, single follicular units are removed from the donor location on the back of the scalp and placed on the bald spot (recipient area).
These follicles are taken out of the area that produces permanent hair. We use the most recent technique, known as power-assisted Follicular Unit Extraction. As we use very small-sized punches the wound heals without any disfigurement.
- When the patient arrives at the office he or she might be offered a drug to calm them down if they are feeling a little anxious
- Next, the doctor reviews the procedure with the patient
- The patient sits in a reclined chair throughout the procedure, where they may watch television, chat with other people, or take a nap
- Blood pressure is taken
- A local anesthetic is used
- The doctor along with his technicians will dissect and insert the grafts with a small pair of tweezers
- After about six hours, the first session is complete and the patient is ready to go home
Follicular Unit Extraction method
The Follicular Unit Extraction method uses micro grafting to achieve unbelievable results. This procedure involves the extraction of individual hair follicles from an area on the scalp, and the reinsertion of the hair follicles into the hairline. Typically, only a local anesthetic is used to execute this kind of hair grafting surgery.
- No scarring
- Faster healing time
- Less discomfort
- No stitching
- No bandaging to keep hairs in place
- Mimics your own hair pattern
- More natural look
- A larger amount of grafts can be transplanted at one time resulting in fewer sessions
The most effective method for achieving a natural, unnoticeable outcome is follicular unit extraction. Hair transplant surgery is safe and successful when done correctly. Follicular Unit Extraction is the approach that is now most advanced. Because of how natural-looking the results are, this approach is favoured.
Follicular Unit Extraction procedure requires no blades or scalpels. We use a special surgical instrument that is designed for the FUE procedure. This instrument allows the doctor to create a circular incision around the hair graft, enabling the extraction of one follicular unit at a time. With FUE, hair restoration is as natural as the original hair in the area. The upsides to the FUE procedure include very little bleeding, no visible scar formation and a short recovery period for the patients. With follicular unit extraction, there is no visible scar, so patients have the freedom of shaving their heads without feeling uncomfortable. Patients can also benefit from a more comfortable healing period and daily activities can be resumed in less time. It usually takes about five to seven days for the wound to heal completely compared to two weeks for the traditional strip hair transplant.
- Important for individuals who like to wear their hair short
- Useful for individuals with a high risk of scar formation in the donor area, especially Asians
- Beneficial for repairing donor scars that cannot be excised
- Minimal post-op discomfort
- Restrictions on vigorous exercise after the procedure
- An ideal alternative to the strip procedure when the scalp is too tight for a strip excision
- Provides the option of maximizing the donor area (but not necessarily the total number of grafts)
- Allows the harvest of selected fine hair from the scalp to be used at the hairline area or eyebrows.
Benefits of FUE, as opposed to traditional methods, include:
- Less bleeding
- No scars
- Less recovery time
- No scalpels, no sutures
