Hair transplantation at Apollo Hospital, Chennai

 Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, is the latest technique in hair transplantation. It involves removing healthy hair follicles directly from a donor area on the scalp, usually at the back of the head where the hair is plentiful, and grafting them onto the bald or thinning areas.

The treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic so discomfort has been pratically eliminated. Benefits of FUE are: a quicker healing time, far less trauma, no strip scar, and the surgeon's ability to individually select follicular units.  By carefully selecting the healthiest follicles the regrowth in most patients can be pushed to 100%. Good enough for Wayne Rooney - good enough for you!
