In Alaxis Aesthetics Clinic in Singapore we mainly use Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is an excellent method of hair transplantation. We are proud to offer this to our patients in Singapore as Hair Transplant Treatment for male and female patent baldness. The only difference between the FUT “Strip” method and FUE is the harvesting portion of the procedure.

At Alaxis Aesthetics Clinic in Singapore the rest of the procedure is the same for both methods (making sites and transplanting 1-2-3-4 hair grafts). FUE is actually the oldest method of hair transplantation.

Numerous years ago, bunches of hairs (15-20 hairs) were extracted using the FUE method and transplanted where patients had thinning. This method of “bunching” was not very advantageous since it did not produce natural looking results.

Today’s FUE is an improved method of what was done years ago. Each individual graft is harvested as they grow (1-2-3-4 hairs). This allows an experienced hair specialist to then transplants the grafts in a fashion where he/she mimics mother-nature (1 hair grafts in front and groupings of 2-3-4 in mid to crown area.

Is FUE Right For Me?

Not every patient is the right candidate for the FUE method. Since this method is what we call a “blind harvest” (since we can’t see under the skin, we guide ourselves by the angle of the hair when extracted the graft), patients with very curly hair may not be the best suited since it can result in a high percentage of transection (cutting into follicle by mistake).

Although Dr. Donald Ng and his team at Alaxis Aesthetics Clinic in Singapore are highly experienced in the FUE method, this doesn’t stop it from being a “blind harvest” therefore patients with straighter hair tend to be better candidates for the FUE method.

The FUE Experience

The following is a step by step explanation of the FUE hair restoration procedure:


    • Pre-Surgery Consultation:
       When patient arrives, he/she meets with DR DONALD Ng for a pre-procedure consultation to reconfirm what the patient’s goals are and create a natural game plan to accomplish those goals.
    • Surgery Prepping: Patient is taken to the procedure room where he/she changes into a medical gown and is given a mild sedative so they can relax. The donor area is then trimmed and anesthetized in order to prepare for the harvesting phase of the procedure.
    • Harvesting: The grafts are then harvested using an automated ergonomic hand tool that allows DR DONALD Ng to safely harvest grafts. This specialized tool is light weight and ergonomic in order to allow for continuous harvesting without any deviation of quality control. Each graft (1-2-3-4 hairs) is grafted using a variety of punches in order to make sure the graft is harvested cleanly and whole.
    • Site Preparation: Sites are then made (under local anesthetic) where the grafts are to be placed. Depending in the area, Dr. Botta angles the slits in the right direction so hair will grow in the correct and natural directions.
    • Graft Transplantation: Each graft harvested is then transplanted. We position the 1-hair grafts in the immediate frontal area to accomplish a soft natural look and the groupings of 2-3-4 hair grafts in the mid to crown areas to give patient density.
    • Post-Operative: Patient’s donor area is bandaged and we review his/her medications and healing instructions.
