FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT PROCEDURE
FUE is a minor surgery and no more painful than a visit to the dentist. At MHR, the procedure takes place in one of our fully-equipped theatres on an outpatient basis.
The Doctor will give the patient a mild tranquilliser to minimise anxiety and reduce discomfort. Next, the surgeon anaesthetises the patients’ donor and recipient areas.
The surgeon now starts to harvest the hair that he will replant into the patients’ bald area. The surgeon extracts individual grafts from the patients’ dense hair area with a surgical punch tool. The process repeats until enough hair is harvested. The tool leaves scattered tiny holes that will heal in a few days.
Our surgery team process the grafts under HD microscopic cameras and HD LED Screens to prepare each unit for transplant. It is essential that the integrity of these grafts remain undisturbed during the dissection process.
The surgeon makes tiny recipient sites in the balding area. The hair grafts are placed into these tiny slits where the body’s natural “glue” will anchor them in place within minutes.
Your scalp has an excellent blood supply, so a minimal amount of bleeding during the transplant procedure is expected. This is easily controlled by applying pressure.
Your hair restoration surgeon will supply you with full written instructions explaining the pre- and postoperative routines before undergoing hair replacement treatment.
