MICRO FUE

   Micro FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method is one of the areas of expertise at Actual Hair Clinic.

 

This approach is an advanced surgical technique for restoring hair loss while avoiding the need for a linear scar-like mark in a FUT technic. We have cherry-picked the best from our experience and came up with a unique way of using and performing FUE, paying attention to every graft we get. In an FUE, achieving the most natural result needs both surgical excellence and an understanding of how hair grows across the head and what will the best option for each patient be.

 

Follicular Unit Extraction is transferring hair grafts from the “donor area” of the scalp to recipient areas affected by baldness. The grafts acquired from the donor area are genetically programmed to continue growing for life. In an FUE approach, individual follicular units extracted from the scalp, and only tiny dot scars left.

THE PROCESS

   At the beginning of the FUE procedure, the donor area of the scalp shaved, follicular unit grafts are extracted individually, using a 0.8mm to 1mm ‘punch’. The process is carried out by a micromotor punch machine. Unlike the FUT technique, which leaves a linear scar, following the FUE method, there will be a series of tiny dot scars on the scalp. They are so small that others can hardly see them with an appropriate hair cut.

 

FUE technique requires only a local anesthetic and is almost entirely pain-free. A typical FUE treatment would require extracting of up to 3.500-4.000 grafts and can take 7-8 hours, while more extensive cases may require more than one session.  New hair will start to grow approximately four – sixth months after surgery and will continue to grow through for the next 12-18 months.

MICRO FUE METHOD AT ACTUAL HAIR CLINIC

At Actual Hair Clinic, most of the patients who want to have a hair transplant undergo Micro FUE approach. Micro FUE is our area of expertise, and we have reached outstanding results with this method.

   At Actual Hair Clinic, we do promise rational and realistic outcomes to our patients. We do not falsify the number of grafts and the results of our patients. Our main advantage is that we do extensive planning of the area we are going to work on – head, back of the head, face, and forehead assessed thoroughly. We examine hair follicles; procedure accurately planned, approximate number of grafts calculated with their area of distribution. After that, the patient is informed about all possible consequences understandably to make the patient have a clear idea about all the aspects and outcomes of the surgery.

   We also give patients briefs before surgery, after the surgery, and on control or wash day. The total number of submissions is 3. In these briefs, we inform the patients about the transplant basics, some terminology, after the transplant care, the time-lapse after the transplant. We do it thoroughly so the patients feel comfortable and safe. Our patients continue to get online support from a professional and trustworthy team, so they don’t feel deceived and disappointed even after the transplant performed.

   At Actual Hair Clinics, all stages of the surgery directly supervised by our physician who have long-standing experience in this field and modern device and approaches used for the treatment. All patients informed in detail about the entire Micro FUE process based on realistic plans.
