Planning for SurgeryAs you arrive the clinic, our staff will give you consent forms to fill. After that several photographs of your head will be taken from different angles. These photographs are used for “before & after” demonstration and evaluation of the surgery. After the photographs are taken, the doctor responsible for the treatment will examine your scalp and hair loss pattern for one last time before starting the surgery.
Designing Hair LineThe next step is designing the hair line. Using an eyebrow pencil, the surgeon will draw a hairline based on your targeted aesthetic goals. This drawing will serve as a guide during the implantation phase to help him establish a more natural looking hairline. The surgeon will also draw the donor area, as it will help him decide which areas he can use for the extraction of grafts.
Preparing for the ExtractionThe first step involved in preparation for FUE at Hair Transplant Saudi Arabia Clinic is shaving the donor area. The donor area is shaved because it helps the doctor to extract grafts more precisely and accurately, without damaging the neighbouring follicles. After shaving, local anaesthesia will be administered to the back of the scalp to numb the donor area and make graft extraction process virtually painless.
Extraction of Follicular UnitsUsing a specially designed punch tool of less than one millimeter diameter, your surgeon will remove follicular units one by one, without making any cut or incision. Each follicular unit extracted consists of 2 to 4 hair follicles and is covered by a protective and each follicle is comprised of a sebaceous gland, a small scalp muscle, nerves and tiny blood vessels.
Preparing the GraftsAs the grafts are extracted, they are passed to the technical staff to trim them carefully under a powerful microscope and obtain grafts of desired size. The follicular units thus obtained are placed in an adequate storage solution (mostly saline solution) to keep them alive outside the patient’s body. Remember preparation and storage of the grafts is the key to the success of a hair transplant surgery.
Break to Have LunchSince hair transplantation is a lengthy procedure that usually takes 6 to 7 months, breaks are necessary to make sure the patient does not feel bored or tired. You will be given a half an hour lunch break between extraction and implantation phase. Our clinic provides the lunch as well as refreshments to the patients during the surgery, so you don’t need to worry about bringing meal to the clinic.
Follicular Unit ImplantationThe final step involved in the FUE Hair Transplant in Saudi Arabia is implantation of the follicular units at the bald areas. Local anesthesia is again administered, this time to the recipient area. The recipient site is then prepared by making tiny incisions at specific angles to make sure the transplanted hair grow in the right direction. Hair follicles are then carefully inserted into these incisions.
After the ProcedureAfter the procedure, our surgeon will provide you a list of post-operational instructions to be followed to ensure smooth and uneventful recovery. The transplanted hair follicles will be completely fixed in the recipient area by the 8th day at most. You will be able to resume your non-strenuous daily activities after 5 to 7 days. From 4th to 8th week the transplanted hair will start falling out (the shock loss phase). You will start growing the transplanted hair after 4 to 6 months. However, it will take more than a year before you will be able to see maximum results.
