At the lorans medical we’re experts in hair replacement, we exclusively perform FUE transplants for our patients. This leading-edge method of hair transplantation is highly technical and the most effective way of getting maximum value out of every donor hair.

What is FUE?

Follicular Unit Extraction, sometimes referred to as follicular unit transplantation, is the modern technique of hair restoration. FUE is a more advanced method of hair transplants than previous techniques like strip harvesting

How it works?

During an FUE transplant, a highly experienced doctor extracts hair follicles from the donor area, typically the back of the neck, using a specialised extraction instrument less than 1mm in diameter. Follicles are then transferred to the recipient area on your scalp and implanted using a powerful stereo microscope in groups of one to four hairs, just as they grow in nature.

This is a Minimally invasive,surgical procedure so you will remain fully conscious the whole time as only local anesthetic is required. Recovery time is short and the risk of complications is low.

After the procedure we will provide you with clear instructions on aftercare, as well as medication and topical treatments to give you the best result possible.

What makes FUE so remarkable is the way hairs are implanted: experienced specialists carefully map your hair growth before implantation so they know where and on what angle to place each follicle. It’s an exacting process that takes a lot of experience and expertise, but we believe the result is worth it: with a successful FUE transplant, donor hair grows, moves and feels the way it used to. This is the highest-quality hair transplant available.

As this is your natural hair, just moved from place to place, it will grow exactly as normal hair and is permanent. There is no need for pills and potions, just enjoy your natural hair

What Is Different In the FUE Operation?

The main difference between the two is how they approach to taking grafts. As we said, the physician slits a strip out and uses this to create grafts. In FUE and DHI surgeries, however, physicians do not open any incisions.

In FUE and DHI hair transplantation operators use an electrical device called micromotor. These devices have a high torque motor built inside, and they have a round tip called punch. This punch opens tiny holes around the hair follicles that we are going to graft. 

The size of the punch varies according to the patient’s follicle type. The radius of the punch usually falls somewhere from .6cm to .9cm. Bigger punches exist, but they are not used as often. 

If the patient has very curly hair, a bigger punch may be necessary. Because curly hair follicles usually tend to be curly themselves. Using a small punch on this kind of hair may lead to damages on the follicle.

FUE Transplant Workflow

During FUE hair transplant, multiple personnel work at the same time throughout the operation. They share the work to speed up the process. 

  1. After the selected follicles are grafted with the micromotor operators, start extracting follicles with a tweezer. Meanwhile, another operator cleans and sorts the grafts in the background. 
  2. To clean the grafts, another operator first takes the collected follicle and lines them up on a strip of surgical gauze. 
  3. Then the operator takes a bottle of spray and squirts it on the grafts.

Hair follicles do not survive for long outside our body. That’s why, after the grafts are clean; we put them into a serum solution. 

  • Serum maintains follicle protection from environmental effects, especially dehydration.
  • Follicles can stay viable in this serum solution for about 8-10 hours outside the body.
  • All the while, hair transplant operations usually take less than 8 hours in total.
What About The Anaesthesia?

Throughout the operation, operators will anaesthetise you at least two times. You will get your first administration of anaesthesia right before the extraction process. 

  • The doctor draws a line around the occipital area.
  • The line will begin from your nape and extend around behind the ears.
  • The line ends at your crown area, and this area has the most sturdy follicles.

The anaesthesia may hurt a bit at the moment of administration. When the anaesthesia of the donor area is complete, patients often stop having sensation around areas that got anaesthetised first. Therefore, you will not feel anything during the operation.

  • Local anaesthetics often have an effect lasting around 3-6 hours.

After the extraction and right before opening the canals, you will get your second anaesthesia. This time your recipient area gets anaesthetised. Again, the physician will draw a line. For this time, it will be around the area that is going to get implantations. 

Some patients also opt for hair grafting from under the beard and chest too. In this case, the same procedure applies to these parts as well.

How Do We Determine Where The Grafts Go?

When the dissection and clean up are complete, the physician prepares to open canals. 

  • Canals are tiny holes physicians punch with microblades.
  • The physician assesses the hair’s natural growth patterns and draws a pathway accordingly.
  • Our hair tends to grow inclined to a certain angle. That’s why they don’t just stick out with a 90-degree angle.
  • So the operator looks at the natural angles and makes incisions to resemble these angles.
  • The operator who lines up the grafts also counts how many grafts are harvested from the patient.
  • Physician plans the number of canals according to the existing number of grafts.
  • So the physician determines where to put more canals and how much coverage which part gets.
  • The physician opens canals to match the number of grafts.

But moving for a long time can become uncomfortable. That’s why teams take a small break to give the patient some time off after opening the canals.

The Implantation Process

Now that both the grafts and the canals are ready, the implantation process can begin. After the break, the operators each take a collection of grafts and start the implantation process. The grafts judged to be more healthy, often go into the front line of the canals.

Operators take each graft with a very small tool resembling a tweezer. Usually, two or more operators implant hair follicles simultaneously to gain time. Frequently, this phase takes up most of the time during the operation since each graft is delicate, and they need attention when planting.

Sometimes during this phase, anaesthetics may wear off. You should inform the team if you start to feel something. If you did not take too many anaesthetics during the operation, they would give you more anaesthesia. 

Fue Hair Transplant Results

Both surgery types offer reliable results when it comes to coverage. FUE and DHI methods do not cause this scarring, that’s why they are much more popular currently. Actually, seeing FUT operations done on patients is quite rare nowadays.

In FUE and DHI, we extract follicles homogeneously from all around the donor area. This way, we don’t overharvest areas and cause a patchy look after the operation. In FUT, however, we used to remove a strip of hair-bearing skin right away. Today, it is not as efficient as the other methods.

In FUE and DHI, patients do not get permanent scars. This is a major advantage of these operations. When you consult us, our experts will help you with any of these methods.

Sleep Instructions
After the bandaging, we will give you instructions about how you’re going to go through your first few days. Nevertheless, after an operation, you have to sleep on your back for the first seven days. This helps avoid unwanted friction when sleeping. And in order to keep you stable on your back, we may recommend you to use neck pillows. Neck pillow keeps you sleeping on your back.
