How FUE works

FUE stands for follicular unit extraction. To perform the FUE hair transplant procedure in Singapore, few steps has to be taken. Firstly, the hair on back of your head needs to be shaven. Secondly, the surgeon takes hair follicles from the scalp. You can notice mild marks where follicles have be removed. Thirdly, the surgeon makes small holes to graft hair follicles in the scalp. Finally, the surgical site is covered with bandage. Unlike FUE, other hair transplant procedures are not very straight forward. An alternative hair transplant treatment is Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), which is the most popular. It’s very different from the FUE procedure. 

Recovery

The procedure can take anywhere from few hours to few days to complete. It solely depends on the efforts of surgeon. You will return home the same day of FUE. Once it’s complete, the surgeon removes bandages carefully. There may be swelling in the area, which will be treated with injected triamcinolone. Pain and soreness will be felt at the transplant site. It also feels similar in area where hair was taken from. For the following days, surgeon may prescribe pain medications, antibiotics, anti-inflammatories and hair growth stimulating medications. 

There are a few aftercare tips, which help with hair growth. Wait a few days to wash your hair after the procedure. Use mild shampoos only for the first few weeks. You can revert to normal lifestyle in less than 3 days. Do not comb or brush over new grafts for at least a couple of weeks. Do not wear hats or hoodies unless doctor says it’s fine. Avoid exercising for at least a week. Don’t panic if a few hairs fall out. It’s part of the process. In the first few months, the new grafts will not grow seamlessly like hairs surrounding it.

Side effects

The first side-effect you will notice is scarring. It is an inevitable part of the process. Other side effects include infections, scalp pain, bleeding, numbness, pus drainage etc. These side effects are less likely to occur. You can still continue to lose hair if the balding has started. Medications such as Minioxidil and Propecia can cause side effects too. The list includes dizziness, chest pain, headaches, swelling of arms and limbs, etc. To avoid such side-effects, a responsible doctor prepares your body against the possibilities.
