Am I a candidate for FUE hair transplant?
Candidates for follicular unit extraction – FUE, are men or women experiencing pattern baldness and have strong-healthy hair at the back or side of the head. We suggest scheduling a consultation to see if you are a good candidate.
How do I prepare for FUE procedure?
You will be asked to stop smoking, drinking alcohol, taking supplements, and anti-inflammatory medicine at least 7 days before the procedure.
Do I need to follow up special instruction after the FUE procedure?
Yes, your hair transplant specialist will explain the precautions you need to follow after the procedure. Some of the most common are, staying hydrated, avoiding direct sunlight to the scalp as well as wearing hair accessories or touching the scalp.
What’s the difference between FUE and FUT?
The main difference is the technique employed to extract the follicle units and the time it takes to finish the procedure.
In FUE, the hair transplant specialist individually extracts the follicles units. While in follicular unit transplantation (FUT), the specialist removes a strip of the scalp and closes the area with stitches, leaving a scar. Then, the follicle units are transplanted into the bald spots.
