FUE Hair Transplant


Follicular Unit Excision (FUE), formerly called Follicular Unit Extraction, is a method of extracting, or “harvesting,” donor hair in a follicular unit hair transplant procedure. In FUE hair transplant surgery, an instrument is used to make a small, circular incision in the skin around a follicular unit, separating it from the surrounding tissue. The unit is then extracted (pulled) directly from the scalp, leaving a small open hole.

This process is repeated until the hair transplant surgeon has harvested enough follicular units for the planned hair restoration. This process can take one or more hours and in large sessions, may be accomplished over two consecutive days. The donor wounds, approximately 1-mm in size, completely heal over the course of seven to ten days, leaving tiny white scars buried in the hair in the back and sides of the scalp.

This method of donor harvesting, removing follicular units one-by-one directly from the scalp, is what differentiates the FUE hair transplant from a traditional Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT), where the donor hair is removed from the scalp in one thin, long strip and then subsequently dissected into individual follicular units using a stereo-microscope.

Before the grafts are harvested, tiny “recipient sites” are made in the balding area of the scalp using a fine needlepoint instrument. The follicular units are then placed into the recipient sites where they will grow into healthy hair-producing follicles. The creation of recipient sites and the placing of follicular unit grafts are essentially the same in both FUE and FUT procedures. The difference lies in the appearance of the donor area and in the quality and quantity of grafts obtained with each technique.

Benefits of FUE Hair Transplant

  1. No visible scarring even wearing short hair
  2. Donor area from where the hair is removed looks unaffected and unchanged as of 2 weeks after the treatment
  3. FUE Hair Restoration ensures a natural looking result using ‘true’ and natural follicle units
  4. Natural looking hairline guaranteed. In the case of the crown area, we recreate the natural swirl using identical angulation and direction.
  5. Recovery days instead of months as no scalpel or stitches are used in the treatment
  6. Treatment without any major trauma for the body
  7. No pain during or after the treatment so you can return home just after the treatment
  8. Local anesthesia is used, similar to dentist anesthesia.

Before & After

Preparing for FUE transplant

Preparing well for the surgery is essential for a successful hair transplant. Here is a list of things that you should avoid prior to surgery:

  • Stop taking blood thinners at least two weeks prior to surgery.
  • Quit smoking at least 15 to 20 days before your hair transplant.
  • Stop alcohol consumption at least a week before your transplant is scheduled.
  • Fill all your prescriptions (both painkillers and antibiotics) well in advance.


I want to thank Dr. Sezgin and his team. I am really happy that the doctor was with me most of the time during the surgery and the nurses giving all instructions and following up really thank you all.

I have heard a lot about Dr. Sezgin. As I have been seeing too many bad and fake looking results around, frankly I was scared to undergo a hair transplant. After I met Dr. Sezgin he convinced me with his confidence and experience. He is really one of the experienced hair transplant surgeons besides he is only performing hair transplant surgeries. I had one session of FUE and was transplanted over 4500 grafts. Thanks Dr. Sezgin for the glowing life changing results.

I’ve done a hair transplant with Dr. Cagatay Sezgin; I’m very happy with the very good results, my hair looks very nice natural and smooth and my family is really happy with the results. I highly recommend to anybody who’s planning to have a hair transplant in Dubai.
