It is recommended for individuals at any age and gender when there is hair loss. But of course it is STRONGLY encouraged to START EARLY! Before you decide to do FUE, our doctors will do a full health consultation to check whether you are a suitable candidate to do the procedure. And it is not a surgical procedure.

Yes, the result is permanent! Basically, it is just moving your healthy hair unit into the bald area, a relocation of your hair. And it will be there to stay. The newly transplanted hair will continue to live on the recipient area of your choice!

FUE hair restoration are usually a one-off procedure, our doctors will assess the severity of your hair loss and your desired hair pattern you wish to restore. We will encourage patient to do at least 2,000 strands of hair minimally per-procedure. And after that you can maintain or enhance the result of your FUE treatment with other treatments we have. For FUE hair transplantation, the survival rate of the newly transplanted hair is usually capped at 70-80%.

Anything to take note after the treatment?

Post care after FUE procedure is the most important part of the treatment.

We will provide you with some antibiotics right after the treatment. During the first week, you are required to come back to us daily for observation, cleansing and shampoo-ing. There will be some minimal bleeding and serous discharge during the first few days after the treatment which is perfectly normal.

You must strictly not touch or attempt to touch the newly transplanted hair during the 1st week. Therefore, we will provide post care and washing service for the first week after the treatment. This enable our doctors to carefully monitor your condition as well.
