Micro FUE Hair Transplant Technique

A Micro FUE procedure is a state-of-the-art hair transplantation technique that uses a minimally invasive method to ensure that natural and undetectable results are achieved from your hair transplant procedure. Also known as DHI (Direct Hair Implantation).

What is a Micro FUE Hair Transplant?

A specialised 0.6 – 0.9mm punch is used to separate follicular units from the surrounding tissue in the donor area, usually the back of the head. 

The small micro surgical extraction instruments that are used during the procedure mean that only minimal trauma occurs in the donor area. The donor area should heal within a few days and the scarring is undetectable giving a natural result.

The tiny follicular units are extracted with the sebaceous gland.  This ensures that the vital elements in the hair are preserved which helps improve the survival rate of the hair follicle increasing the growth success rate.

This technique only leaves small, puncture scars, which are practically invisible to the naked eye. There is minimal post-surgical pain and discomfort – with the average overall recovery time being less than 7 days.

The micro grafts are then newly transplanted using high tech implanters. Only very few surgeons in the UK are able to offer this advanced technique.

This specific methodology and a high powered microscope are used to allow each graft to be implanted in one swift movement. This combination of working allows the hair transplant surgeon to precisely place each follicle with specific angulation, depth and direction. It is pain free being done under a local anaesthetic. The results show hair that grows in a natural way.

What is an Implanter?

An implanter is a hair transplant device that looks like a pen with a hollow needle on one end. Hair follicles are loaded into the hollow needle end. The surgeon then uses the implanter pen to implant the hair follicle directly into the recipient area. A number of pens are used at the same time to allow the surgeon to work quickly whilst ensuring good density.

Micro FUE at The Private Clinic

The Private Clinic are pioneers of the advanced minimally invasive method, Micro-FUE which allows the production of high quality grafts with fewer traumas. Traditionally density was only achieved with larger grafts which often results in an unnatural look but smaller grafts are now able to achieve significant density while creating a natural result.
