What is FUE?
FUE stands for "Follicular Unit Extraction".
FUE is a cosmetic treatment involving the own hairs being transplanted, without the disadvantages of ugly scars, long recovery periods or unnatural look. The treatment is carried out without using scalpel or sutures. The FUE method was developed in order to stop exposing patients to risks such as large scars and/or pain (frequently associated with the FUT/strip technique). FUE hair transplantation is extremely suitable for the treatment of both incipient and advanced hair loss.
Can I get a FUE hair transplant?
Hair replacement candidates must have healthy hair growth at the back and sides of the head to serve as donor areas. Donor areas are the places on the head from which grafts are taken. Other factors, such as hair colour, texture and waviness or curliness may also affect the cosmetic result.
Before you decide to undergo surgery, think carefully about your expectations and keep in mind that result cannot always fit your expectations of ideal hair. Factors, such as hair colour, texture and waviness or curliness may also affect the cosmetic result. Remember, there are limits to what can be accomplished. An individual with very little hair might not be advised to undergo hair replacement surgery.

How long does a hair transplant take?
Hair transplantation procedure at our clinic is done over the course of a single day; however we recommend that you stay at the clinic for another 2 nights after the procedure to prevent from possible infections and facilitate a faster and successful healing process. This stay is included in your price.
Is FUE operation painful?
Absolutely not, we administer local anaesthesia and the patient does not feel any pain during the procedure. However, the first days of healing process for some patients might be a little uncomfortable and prescription medication might be administered at the doctor's discretion. This is one of the reasons we recommend that you stay at the clinic after your procedure.
