Description of treatment
FUE stands for 'Follicular Unit Extraction’ and is a hair restoration procedure involving the transplant of one’s own hairs from one area of the scalp to another. It is a minimally invasive treatment, and involves
- No sutures
- No staples
- No cutting
Individual follicles, or groups of follicles, known us “Follicular Units” are removed directly from the donor area. The grafts are then transplanted into areas where the patient desires more hair to create a natural looking hair line and/or add density to areas of thinning.
Consistent and natural results
Thanks to the advancements in this hair microsurgery, it is been possible to transplant hair follicles with a completely natural result and without risk of serious complications.
The FUE method was developed in order to stop exposing patients to risks such as large scars, pain and excessive swelling. It also eliminates problematic, unnatural looking, “pluggy” transplants. FUE hair transplantation is extremely suitable for the treatment of both incipient and advanced hair loss.
The Hair Restoration SA Team

Advantages of FUE
No Major Scarring
A major reason why people prefer FUE to other solutions is that this procedure leaves no (linear) scars on your head. Normally the downside of hair transplant procedures is that they leave linear, big scars on the back of your head. This however is not the case with FUE as this is a very advanced method.
In the early days hair transplant procedures were highly unreliable and often the results were not positive. But ever since doctors have started using FUE things have changed quite a bit. This procedure is highly reliable and effective. One of the main benefits of FUE transplant is that it heals very quickly. In the early days healing time could last for months but now it has been reduced to just a single week. After just a week of the hair transplant the patient should be able to continue his normal life.
FUE hair transplant will give you natural looking results and people won’t be able to tell whether you had a hair transplant or not. A lot of people are concerned because other procedures just don’t look natural.
FUE hair transplant surgery is a completely painless procedure. You won’t need any stitches after the transplant has been completed. Due to the advancements in technology it is now possible to have a hair transplant done easily without suffering any pain. You can even wear short hair after the procedure and no one would be able to tell that you had hair transplanted on your head.
FUE surgery will give you natural and consistent results. This procedure is recognized throughout the world for its consistency. The doctor will also have control over how your hair grows. He can strategically place the hair follicles in such a manner that they leave you with a head full of hair.
Minimised Risk of Infections
In some hair transplant procedures patients can suffer from infections after the surgery but this is not the case with Follicular unit extraction. This procedure is virtually painless.
Quality of Hair
The quality of your transplanted hair will be no different than your natural hair. No one will be able to tell the difference as everything will just blend in naturally. Follicular unit extraction is the ideal solution for all those who want to look young again and get rid of baldness.
HRSA uses the finest blades for creating lateral slits into the recipient area allowing follicles to be densely packed. This gives a natural, dense look to the hairline.
