FUE hair transplants are becoming increasingly popular, being the most advanced surgical hair loss treatment. Here we explain what a FUE transplant is, whether it’s permanent and more. ​ By the age of 34, 66% of men will have experienced some degree of hair loss. With more pressure than ever for men to look their best, this can be a devastating blow to self-confidence.

Hair transplants are becoming increasingly popular amongst image-conscious men, offering a lasting and cost-effective solution to hair loss. There are several types of hair transplant available but FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is the most advanced. Let’s take a closer look at the FUE hair transplant procedure.

What is a FUE hair transplant?

As the name suggests, Follicular Unit Extraction involves taking hair follicles from the donor area and implanting them in the target area. Hairs are usually taken from the back or sides of the head where hair is thick and healthy. Natural groups of 1-4 hairs are harvested from the donor area and implanted into the scalp. This is performed using a non-invasive microsurgery technique which is painless and leaves little or no scarring. The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and recovery times are short.

New hairs will begin to grow 4-5 months after the surgery is complete, and these will continue to grow for the next 18 months. Patients are likely to experience some initial shedding in the early months, but after about 5 months the new hairs will begin to thicken. After a while, they will be indistinguishable from the rest of your hair.

The FUE process

In FUE, natural groups of 1-4 hairs are harvested from the head and transplanted to the area of your scalp where you are experiencing hair loss. Donor sites tend to be from the sides or back of the head, with hair follicles then being implanted into the new site. Careful consideration of hair volume, angle and colouring is taken to ensure the best possible hair match to cover balding areas and achieve the fullest, most natural look.

After visiting my GP, I needed to find a private clinic to remove a cyst that had been progressively growing in a prominent position on my forehead. After searching online, I discovered two. The first was closer to home but they failed to respond to my attempts to contact them which was to my benefit because the Aventus Clinic was next on my list. The response time from Abul was extremely quick and his manner and attitude were highly professional. After reviewing my situation via email, I booked a consultation and procedure appointment the following Saturday as I could not attend during the week. Abul greeted me and efficiently ran through all documentation before I spoke to Claire, who was also the epitome of friendly professionalism. After a stress free procedure, in a spacious and bright room with music playing, Claire ran through after care and provided me with information to care for the wound. I had frequent communications with Abul following the procedure with post procedure checks carried out on pictures that I supplied. I would thoroughly recommend this clinic, the staff I had contact with at Aventus Clinic and the cost was competitive also. I am very pleased with the final results. Thank you.

Excellent care and service from from Aventus. After having several scalp cysts for years and being told I would have to wait up to 10 years for treatment on the NHS I come here to have 2 removed and I will definitely be back to have the rest done. The team are very friendly and welcoming, I could not be happier with how the treatment went.

An amazing, professional and proficient service. Communication from start to finish with Abul was first class and I even had two calls following the procedure to check on my progress. The excision of a very large cyst by Claire was totally painless and I was looked after extremely well by the Team. My thanks to everyone at Aventus, I cannot praise them enough and have no hesitation in recommending this clinic to others.

Is a FUE hair transplant permanent?

FUE hair transplants are permanent in that transplanted hair follicles will maintain their quality even when transplanted to an area of hair loss.

This hair can be treated in the same way as the rest of your other hair in every aspect from washing it to cutting it.

Will I need more than one FUE hair transplant procedure?

While FUE hair transplants are ‘permanent’, the main difficulty with hair loss is that it is typically an ongoing issue, meaning that while your transplanted hair will remain, other hair around this area may continue to thin. In these cases you might then wish to have a further FUE hair transplant to allow you to regrow these other areas of hair loss.

Typically, patients are willing to have further FUE hair transplants to replace hair that is lost from other areas of the scalp after their initial surgery. However, as we are limited by our sources of donor hair to use in transplants, maintenance of existing hair is integral to slowing overall hair loss. Using hair loss medications and serums alongside your FUE hair transplant is therefore vital to preventing further thinning and sustaining hair in the long-term.

Equally, while advanced methods mean that we are able to transplant hair in greater volume, it is often impossible to achieve the volume of the original hair. This is due to the fact that concentrated incisions would leave too much trauma to the scalp, preventing the skin and hair from healing well. Because of this, it is common to have more than one FUE hair transplant over your journey to hair restoration, with this helping clients achieve a fuller appearance.

What is the difference
between FUE and FUT?

During FUT the surgeon removes a section of skin from the back of the head and obtains hair follicles from this for the transplant.

However, the nature of this procedure means that it can leave a rather specific type of scar along the back of the head where the area of skin has been taken from.However, FUE hair transplants are a much less invasive procedure than FUT, with individual hair follicles instead being taken directly from the scalp. Often, hair donor follicles are taken from the back of the neck and relocated to the new section of the scalp so as to create a similar pattern to the hair that previously grew there. The best thing about FUE is that it leaves minimal scarring, with recovery time being days as opposed to the multiple weeks that it can take for FUT scars to fully heal. 

On the whole, many patients prefer the FUE hair transplant method to FUT, with it being a less painful, more effective and refined procedure and allowing clients to achieve a more natural result.

What-is-the-difference

Is FUE painful?

One of the reasons that FUE is so popular is because it is much less invasive than something like FUT. A local anesthetic is administered for the procedure, with a majority of clients experiencing no pain at all despite being conscious.

While you may experience some minor discomfort during your first few days of recovery, this is minimal and the potential for further health complications following FUE is very low.

Should I have a FUE hair transplant?

The best treatment for your hair loss will depend on a number of factors like the pattern of your hair thinning and your family history. However, one of the key things that makes you an ideal candidate for the procedure is having enough hair growth at the back and sides of the head to ensure there are enough hair follicles to act as a donor. Likewise, other elements like texture and colour will impact the final appearance.

Is FUE hair transplant permanent?

The short answer is yes. Transplanted hairs will maintain their quality and will continue to behave like normal hairs. However, balding is typically an ongoing issue. This means that, as time goes on, another FUE procedure may be necessary to replace further hair loss. Patients can have multiple FUE procedures, but there is a limit to the amount of donor hair that can be extracted.

What is the success rate of FUE hair transplant?

FUE has a success rate of over 95%. However, this is highly dependent on the skills of the surgeon performing the operation. Choosing a reputable clinic with an experienced surgeon is the best way to maximise your chances of success.

Does FUE hair transplant work?

FUE is a highly effective hair loss solution, consistently outperforming alternative treatments. While most men will notice a major improvement with FUE, some candidates are more suitable than others. The most important criteria is having enough donor hair on the back and sides of your head. The colour and consistency of your hair will also affect the final result.

How much does FUE hair transplant cost?

FUE prices vary greatly depending on the number of follicles that need to be extracted. Some clinics will charge per graft, while others will charge a flat rate for different levels of procedure. Generally speaking, you should expect to pay at least £3,000 for an FUE hair transplant. Cheaper procedures are available, but these are usually not performed by reputable surgeons.
