Explore the Procedure Details

The patient will be placed under local anesthesia to ensure comfort throughout the procedure. Small incisions are made in the donor area with a punch needle and then gently, each individual follicular unit, or group of hairs are extracted. These follicular units will then be implanted in the desired area manually.

During the implantation, the hairs will be inserted into small punctures, each separated by about 0.7 - 1.2 millimeters in diameter. Afterward, the recipient site and the donor area are cleaned, ensuring that the patient will heal properly.

 Experience a Smooth Recovery

After the procedure is complete, the patient will be advised to apply cold compresses and sleep with their head slightly elevated. It is important for patients to keep their scalp clean during the healing process and to follow Dr. Rhee’s advice on when to resume daily activities. 

In the days and weeks following the FUE Hair Transplant procedure, it is normal to experience swelling and redness in the affected area. However, this will gradually subside after a few weeks. The transplanted hairs will begin to grow, usually lasting many years with proper maintenance.
