Grow Confidence Along-with New Hair

At Medlounges, we follow the FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction, a method that is minimally invasive. FUE method for hair transplantation is used to harvest and transplant hair from the donor site, which is then replanted into the affected areas of the scalp. This process of hair transplantation works best in males who show symptoms of male pattern baldness and alopecia. At Medlounges, proper care for the patient is the first priority and our medical panel follows a well-structured code of ethics upholding discipline as well as ensuring the privacy and confidentiality of the patient at all times.

  • I had some inhibitions towards hair fixing as it is justa sophisticated wig and was worried if I could ever caress my own wavy hair ever. Dr. Joseph and his team at Medlounges is really gifted as it never left that I went through a minimally invasive process and could get my hair back in no time. Just one day procedure and its all done. Was very impressed with the ambience, the jovial and cozy staff, highly skilled doctors and the erudite machineries; the combo that I have never come across in any hair transplantation clinics that I have been. Highly recommended.

    Adv Mathew Cherian, Thiruvalla

  • Though being a doctor by profession, I had very little knowledge in cosmetology and the updates in the field, but had a serious issue of Alopecia, which was making me bald, and was unable to prevent. It went to a stage where my researches always ended up with hair fixing as the final solution, which I was against. Then I researched about FUE and tried figuring out the best service providers in the city. It was accidental but fortunate that I got to know about Medlounges and their genuine suggestions were credible enough, to decide to go with them. First phase was PRP to control the hair fall and then FUE was executed. It was just a perfect balance and I retained and regrown my hair. Very much contented with their knowledge and service.

Frequently Asked Questions on FUE Hair Transplantation

How does it work?

After giving the patient local anaesthesia, 1 to 4 hairs are removed from individual follicles using a micro surgical extraction instrument of 0.6 mm to 1.0 mm diameter. The surgeon then using special micro surgical needles, punctures the scalp area where the grafting would be done. Following a natural hair pattern, the surgeons then graft the hair at an angle and density that matches with the patient’s real hair so that the natural look is maintained.

How long does the hair transplant procedure take?

The FUE hair transplant sessions can be undertaken either in several small sessions or a single long session. Though the time consumed is more than a strip surgery, there are no scars left behind like the strip surgery does. The time consumed for an FUE hair transplant procedure usually depends on how many grafts are needed. For long procedures where around 2500 to 3000 grafts are required, the session can last well over two days whereas if the grafts required are less, say below 500 grafts, the procedure will be over in a couple of hours.

How long is the recovery time needed?

Since the FUE procedure of hair transplantation is different from strip surgery and it does not require large areas of the scalp to be harvested, there is no incision on the scalp. There are only small puncture scars which are close to non-existent since there are only small puncture scars. There is close to zero surgical pain or discomfort owing to which the recovery time is less than 7 days in almost all the cases.

How long do results of the FUE hair transplant methods last?

The results of FUE are permanent and the hair will grow back after the transplanted hair falls off after a week or so.


Advantages of
Follicular Unit Extraction

  • Scars are close to being invisible
  • Minimal pain after your procedure
  • Less time required for recovery and return to daily life
  • Gives natural looking hairline
  • Chances of complications are reduced to a great extent

Disadvantages of
Follicular Unit Extraction

  • Larger donor area
  • The donor area must be shaved
  • Grafts are more fragile
  • Since the micro surgical devices used for grafting cannot see through the skin to locate the hair bulb, some hairs may be lost due to transection or cutting off just above the bulb level.
  • Slightly more expensive since the technology used is cutting edge and is of a minimally invasive nature.
