The Advance Clinic Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a minimally invasive hair transplantation technique in which follicular unit grafts (hair follicles) are individually removed from the patient’s donor area and then individually transplanted to the recipient (thinning) area. The grafts are removed using a precision tool and then placed in the recipient area. There is no linear scar and no stitches are required, so your donor area will be minimally noticeable within just a few days.
An Advance Clinic FUE procedure is performed by Advance Clinic Surgeon in an in-house Operation Theatre or an Operation Theatre in a Partner Hospital. Advance Clinic surgeons have dedicated their practice exclusively to hair restoration. Also the surgeons are highly skilled in the time-tested process of natural graft placement, where a patient’s hairline is recreated in keeping with their original hair growth pattern to give them a natural-looking result.
Using a tiny one-millimetre in diameter (or less) instrument, the surgeon will remove individual follicular units from the patient’s scalp. The device makes a tiny circular incision around the follicular unit to isolate the graft. The graft is then extracted directly from the scalp using a tweezers-like instrument, and then prepared for placement by your team of skilled Advance technicians. Working with a high-powered stereo microscopes, these specially trained technicians isolate, prepare and ensure that the follicular grafts remain in optimal condition. Follicular units are arranged into groups depending on the number of hairs contained within each follicle (1-4 hairs are commonly found within each follicle). The placement of these follicular units is what sets the stage for Advance’s natural-looking results and artistic difference.
