FUE (follicular unit extraction) techique means the removal of the follicular units each by each, by the use of a micromotor punch knife and leaving several dots of minimal scars at the donor area which heals quickly and scarfree.
These very small scars are not visible. The FUE method is painless and takes about 6-8 hours to carry out. A FUE graft contains 1-4 hairs on average – depending on the patient’s genetics.

Hair restoration at its best
Until hair cloning becomes available to most male patients hair transplantation remains the only lasting solution to their problem. Losing hair or getting bald can be annoying and largely can affects your self-esteem. In what cases can FUE technique help men? Most patients want to get back their old look if possible. Some people may want to increase the density of hair as thickness is a sign of power and energy. Other group of people are looking to get a new hairline design – as they have a receding hairline already. The bald spots on the top can be covered by hair taken from the back of the head. Also, it is not impossible to achieve a full head of hair if you decide well in time and you still have enough hair on the donor area. If you suffer from an illness or your medical condition is causing the hair fall or the hair loss you may not be the right candidate yet to undergo the hair loss surgery. You need to have a clean record in terms of medical conditions causing severe hair loss. If in doubt consult with our hair surgeons who will tell you about the options to improve your hair growth.

Beware of grafts instead of hair pieces quoted – they are misleading! Hair surgeons, specialist transplant hair pieces, not grafts. It is important to note that the number of hair pieces in a graft can vary from 1-4 and on average you have to calculate 2 pieces of hair at a maximum. Also, all hair patient has to know that the doctors will count the hair pieces – the actual number of hair pieces they implant to the recipient area.
Why go abroad for hair replacement?
There are several good reasons to consider before you decide on hair restoration. Price, quality of service, expertise of hair surgeons, trained and experienced team of the hair clinic all speak for Hungary as the venue of your hair loss surgery.
Budapest is easy of reach from Ireland and UK – with budget airlines that operate several times a week. The flight takes 2.5 hours and all patients are picked up from the airport and will be taken to their hotel near the hair clinic.
Patients actually get better treatment in Hungary in many ways – they are looked after during their stay in Budapest. After the initial consultation you will get a detailed and personalised treatment plan.

Why Hungary for hair loss treatment?
Budapest has some advantages over other popular countries like Turkey or India. First such factor is its location. As Hungary lies in Central Europe you do not have to travel days to get to the clinic. This is important especially when you need several sessions for your hair restoration. Second reason to consider is warranty and legal requirements. As part of the EU Hungarian hair clinics have to meet the highest standards required by European law. Third aspect is the regulation that specifies that only trained hair surgeons can perform surgery in the European Union. If you compare expenditure and travel fuss you will see that male patients get the highest standard of service at an affordable expense.
