If you are thinking of getting hair transplant treatment in Singapore using FUE Alaxis Aesthetics clinic is for you, With many years of experience behind us, you can relay on our service to give you quality results. During the process, we harvest individual follicles – typically between 1 and 4 hairs – are removed under local anaesthesia.
The extraction procedure utilises a micro surgical extraction instrument, between 0.6mm and 1.0mm in diameter, to remove the follicles.
Our surgeon Dr dDonald Ng and his team using specialist micro surgical needles, then punctures the scalp area that is to receive the grafts. Our surgeon will blend the hair in, inserting the grafts at an angle and density that matches the original hair, so it will resemble a natural and realistic hair pattern.
How long does it take?
An FUE hair transplant can be undergone in either one long session, or several smaller sessions. It tends to be more time consuming than strip surgery, but does not leave the obvious and typical scars that strip surgery does.
The length of time for an FUE procedure can vary, but it usually depends on how many grafts are needed. A smaller procedure, where only around 200 grafts are needed, can be completed in a couple of hours. However, a larger procedure of around 2,500 to 3,000 grafts will require a session that stretches over two days
How long does it take to recover?
Unlike strip surgery, FUE hair transplantation does not require large areas of the scalp to be harvested. There is also no linear incision on the back of the head, nor does it leave a linear scar.
As individual follicles are removed, it only leaves small, puncture scars, which are practically invisible to the naked eye. There is hardly any post-surgical pain and discomfort – with the average recovery time being less than 7 days.
