FAQs about Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) Hair Transplants

Hair transplants have come a long way since they first burst onto the market, and the results are now extremely natural-looking, without the “teabag” perforation marks which blighted the earliest procedures. Hair loss affects a large proportion of men and women in the UK, and transplants can now be carried out on a range of different sites including the top of the head, the eyebrows and facial hair too. The procedure is very discreet and the resulting appearance looks so natural that no-one will be able to tell that you’ve had a transplant, other than by your thicker and fuller looking hair! Modern hair transplants can be carried out via a couple of different procedures but FUE is one of the most revolutionary, offering excellent results. Here are some of the most common FAQs about Follicular Unit Excision (FUE).
