IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT FUE HAIR TRANSPLANTATION
With the FUE hair transplantation the hair follicles are taken one by one from the donor area and transplanted afterwards to the recipient area.
The FUE method and the FUT method differ merely in the way the hair is extracted from the donor area, however, but they give the same results in the recipient area.
The final result of the hair transplantation will be visible within 6-10 months after the operation
Up to 3500-4500 Follicular Units can be transplanted during one operation.
The operation includes 3 stages:
In this stage the doctor extract the grafts from the donor area
Channels opening stage:
In this stage the doctor open the channels where the “live” grafts need to be transplanted
Transplanting the grafts:
This stage is the only stage where the doctor can get some help as he wants to transplant the grafts as fast as possible, that’s in order to avoid the grafts dead by staying outside of the body for many hours.
The operation will be done under the local anesthesia and you will be fully awake during the operation, for there more you can bring your favorite book to read or you can watch TV during the operation

Hair Transplantation, also known as hair restoration surgery, is the surgical process of moving hair follicles from one part of the body that is rich in hair (known as a donor site) and embedding them at the the bald area of the head (recipient site).
It is a minimally invasive procedure, performed under local anesthetic and is most commonly used to treat male baldness, but the technique can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair and to fill in scars. The procedure usually lasts between 4 to 8 hours, depending on the number of grafts needed.
While there are many causes of hair loss, the most common reason, especially for men, is genetics. Hereditary hair loss as men age is the number one leading factor of baldness.
Your scalp will continue to be sensitive to pain for a few days, during which time you should continue to take the medications provided by the doctor. On top of the pain killers and anti-inflammatory meds, you may also be given antibiotics to lessen the risk of infection, as uncommon as this may be.
You should expect to return to work and your daily routine, including exercise, after 5 days. However, the signs of a hair transplant will remain for at least another 2-3 weeks, at which point the newly transplanted hairs will start to fall out - but don't be alarmed! This is to be expected as you've just had a follicle extraction, so dead hair will simply make way for new hair over the coming weeks and months.
If the average person's hair only grows at a centimeter per month, then it will take some time before you can wear your hair long again. You could expect to display short and consistent hair just 4-6 weeks after the treatment.
The success rate for hair transplants is one of the highest, at 98% and is considered the only truly effective remedy for hair loss. Scarring is the most common side effect but is only applicable to FUT. Other potential risks and side effects could include infections, temporary loss of sensation around the surgical sites, inflammation of hair follicles (folliculitis), temporary scalp pain, itching, and swelling.
