FUE Hair Transplantation: All information about the surgical technique
There are many surgical options for hair transplantation and they allow the attending physician to achieve an optimal result for the patient through carefully planned combinations. planned combinations. The procedure to be used in each individual case must be discussed in a detailed consultation with the patient. Influencing factors are not only the existing anatomical conditions, but also the expectations of the patient, as well as any pre-existing conditions. In most cases, it proves to be particularly useful and advantageous to use the so-called FUE hair transplantation as a method.
General Information about
the FUE Method
Read here about FUE hair transplantation in detail as well as the different techniques that can be applied here. Possible methods include the Gold FUE method, which involves particularly small punctures, the MP FUE method, a non-surgical therapy that is used especially for extensive hair loss, and the Body FUE method, which is suitable for very advanced hair loss and in which hair is removed from other areas of the body. We will inform you about our experience with the procedures of FUE hair transplantation, about risks and disadvantages as well as about the situation after the transplantation and we will also discuss the associated costs.
After a long search I finally found the surgeon I trust! I have a complicated story about Prof. Dr. medical Sinis come. He encouraged me, but was honest with me at the same time.
FUE Technique: The methods
In the classic FUE method (Follicular Unit Extraction), the hair follicles (also called grafts) at the back of the head are extracted and transplanted individually. The the careful individual removal of hair roots offers special protection. The advantages of this procedure are that no skin sutures are necessary and therefore no stitches have to be pulled. As a result, there are no scars in the removal area and the wound heals much faster and with less complications. The end result is a natural looking overall looks due to the individual transplantation of the single grafts.
Gold FUE is a special FUE method in which the grafts are removed with an efficient micromotor and a gold-plated hollow needle. The extremely sharp and fine gold tip produces even fewer punctures, which primarily accelerate the healing phase and cause less scarring.
Micro hair pigmentation is a non-surgical therapy for extensive hair loss. In this process, colour pigments are selectively introduced under the skin. This method is particularly suitable for supporting a hair transplantation by means of an optical compression between the inserted hair follicles. In addition to hair thickening, it is also a proven remedy for scars from accidents or operations, where hair transplantation is difficult to perform. The pigmentation also gives the impression of very natural and dense hair in these situations.
In the case of very advanced hair loss, there are usually too few donor hairs in the area of the back of the scalp for a satisfactory skin transplant. In this case, hair can be taken from other areas of the body (for example chest hair) or beard hair can be taken and implanted into the recipient area.
FUE Hair Transplantation: Experiences / Risks
The results and patients’ experiences of an FUE hair transplantation at the Sinis Clinic Berlin are overwhelmingly positive. The before and after comparison shows impressive results. Where previously light areas showed the scalp, most of our patients have a full head of hair after twelve months.
Since FUE hair transplantation is not an operation under general anaesthesia, the risks are generally relatively low. Under certain circumstances some may be intolerant to the local anaesthetic. Side effects of the transplantation itself are not yet known. However, it is a fact that the surgical technique is quite time-consuming, as each follicle must be removed and relocated individually. However, this is not a disadvantage of FUE hair transplantation, as the final result is completely natural and satisfactory due to the complex surgical technique.
After transplantation of their own hair, patients usually want to see results as soon as possible. That’s understandable. However, patience is key. The final result can take up to a year to be seen properly. Despite the good durability of a hair transplant, patients should avoid certain activities of everyday life for the first days after the operation. Basically, the freshly transplanted hair follicles must be protected and treated carefully. Here is a small list of the most important aspects to answer patients’ most frequent asked questions in advance:
- Protection against impacts with objects (no football etc.)
- Avoiding lifting heavy loads
- Avoid sweating; do not engage in active sports
- No sexual activity for the first few days
- No alcohol after the treatment, because the patient must take an antibiotic
- If possible, sleep in a supine position with slightly raised upper body
- Avoiding friction in the area of the transplantation sites
- Washing hair only on the 3rd day after the treatment
- Hair wash exactly according to our instructions
- For the first hair wash, please use the shampoos prescribed by us and the respective lotion
- Protect scalp from sunlight and other stimuli The patient should wear a loose-fitting headgear outside for at least 14 days
- Avoid swimming, solariums and saunas
- If after 10-12 days the skin crusts still remain on the transplantation areas, please massage the areas intensively with an oily cream and remove the crusts from the area.
Note: After about 2 weeks, the transplanted hairs begin to fall out. However, this is no cause for concern. The first hairs will be shed so that strong, strong and healthy hair grows back. This is a normal procedure.
At the Sinis Clinic Berlin, each of our patients is treated individually. This is because it is important to pay attention to the individual needs of each patient in order to ensure optimal treatment, especially with a sensitive subject like hair transplantation. Therefore, we do not offer all-inclusive prices. Instead, the costs can vary depending on personal needs. Costs for a hair transplant can be precisely determined in an individual consultation. The costs for a hair transplant are calculated according to the number of grafts (hair follicles) transplanted plus material.
The costs for the first consultation are generally based on the scale of fees for doctors. Thereafter, patients pay 90 € for the initial consultation with anamnesis, collection of previous findings, physical examination and preparation of a therapy and cost plan. This fee is payable once and will not be credited towards further treatment.
