FUE Hair Transplant is a surgical treatment that is used as a solution to hair loss. The treatment involves extracting individual hair follicles from a part of the body known as the ‘donor area’ and implanting them into the balding part of the head called the ‘recipient area’. In an FUE Hair Transplant, each hair follicle is individually taken directly from the donor site with no strip of tissue being removed.
2. How is FUE Hair Transplant Performed?
Hair transplant is carried out under local anesthesia. Hair follicles are extracted with a micromotor one by one and are placed into micro canals in the recipient area. After the hair treatment, the patient is given instructions about post-operation controls by MCAN Health contracted surgeons. Thanks to its experienced hair transplant surgeons and cutting-edge technology, MCAN Health offers its patients pain-free and scar-free hair transplants in a very relaxing setting.
