How Does FUE Hair Transplant Work?


At SL Aesthetic Clinic, hair grafts are obtained in groups of 1-4 hairs (also known as follicular units or grafts) from a patient’s donor area before transplanting it to the site of hair loss, one after another.

To increase the success rate of your hair restoration and minimise permanent hair loss, strict protocols are observed when harvesting your hair. This is done with the goal of minimising damage to your hair follicles, also known as transection rate.

Why am I losing so much hair?


Hormones have the biggest impact on balding in most people. Male pattern hair loss is typically hereditary.
It is associated with the male sex hormone – DHT.

High DHT levels can contribute to hair loss as DHT blocks nourishment to hair follicles. This shortens the hair growth cycle, leading to the miniaturisation of hair. This results in the malnourished hair thinning out.


Balding may also be triggered by disease or illnesses as hair follicles can be sensitive and respond to imbalances in the body. Thyroid diseases, cancer treatments, a lack of iron in your blood and a diet low in nutrition may all lead to excessive hair loss.

Mechanical Damage

The chemicals found in dyes, tints, bleaches, straighteners and permanent waves may be too harsh on your hair and scalp, which can cause balding.

Apart from certain medical conditions, FUE hair transplant can be your solution to hair loss

What is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplantation?

SL Aesthetic Clinic’s Hair Transplant in Singapore is performed using Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). It is a technique for hair extraction, the grafts of which will then be manually transplanted into the recipient sites such as the head, eyebrows, and facial regions.

In Hair Transplant (FUE), each follicular unit is individually harvested from the scalp. As the extraction is done in a random fashion, the decrease in hair density in the donor area is almost unnoticeable after Hair Transplant if there is good hair density in the donor site. Because the number of follicles harvested can be controlled, doctors can extract a desired number of grafts in the donor site. This means the sites can be covered with neighbouring hairs to look as if there was no loss of hair after Hair Transplant.

Additionally, with this controlled number of extractions, the doctor will also be able to tailor the density of the recipient site for a naturally-looking lock of hair after Hair Transplant.

Important note: Hair Transplant Follicular Unit Extract (FUE) is a long procedure. SL Aesthetic Clinic performs Hair Transplant in Singapore with a medical professional and a dedicated hair technician.

How is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant done at SL Clinic Singapore?

It is important that our doctor assess your condition and needs during a consultation. This is to understand what your expectations and concerns are and to advise what is the best way to address them. During the consultation, the doctor will determine if you’re suitable for the procedure, the number of grafts required, the method of extraction, and explain to you the risks and downtime involved.

Depending on the number of grafts needed, or in other words the number of hairs to be transplanted for the desired hair density in the recipient site, we recommend shortening a small strip of your hair, typically at the back of the head. This can be hidden by surrounding hairs until it grows back.


Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant is done manually.

  1. First, a small strip of hair from the donor site is shortened with a shaver to approximately 1mm in length for a smoother procedure. The shaven area can be hidden by other hairs around the area. We call this the “stealth shaving” technique. For larger transplantations (>1,500 grafts), a complete shave may be required.
  2. The donor site is then cleansed with an antiseptic solution.
  3. The scalp in the donor site is numbed with local anaesthetic.
  4. A follicular extractor pen with a diameter ranging from 0.6 to 0.8mm is then used to extract the hair grafts (between one to four strands of hair), complete with vital glands.
  5. The grafts are then collected and stored in a patented CALECIM solution. The individual grafts are  inspected under high-powered magnification. 
  6. An implantation scheme is then planned out for the recipient site. This crucial step determines the angles, direction and distribution of grafts.
  7. The harvested hair grafts are then manually implanted into the recipient site by our chief hair technician. These implants follow the direction of surrounding hair for a natural-looking result.
Where can hair be extracted and transplanted?

Donor sites are areas where hair can be extracted for transplantation. Sites include:

  • Hair from the back and sides of the head. These areas are the most commonly selected
  • Body hair
  • Underarm hair

Recipient sites are areas where hair can be transplanted. Typical areas patients have had the procedure for include:

  • Crown of the head
  • Hairline
  • Eyebrows
  • Facial hair (e.g., beard, moustache)
How many grafts do I need for Hair Transplant?

Is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant in Singapore Safe?

In general, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplantation is an out-patient procedure and is considered a safe treatment for hair loss and sparse hair density. In addition, as you are your own donor, there is no risk of tissue rejection. But as with any medical treatment, there are some associated risks.

Some side effects may appear after your Hair Transplant. Others may arise a long time after surgery. These are rare and can be minimised by consulting with our doctor. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Bleeding (haematoma)
  • Infection & cystic formation
  • Temporary thinning of hair (i.e. shock loss)
  • Scab itch
  • Temporary pain
  • Poor wound healing
  • Swelling
  • Haemorrhage
  • A possibility of revision surgery
What can I expect from SL Aesthetic Clinic's Follicular Unit Extract (FUE) Hair Transplant in Singapore?

The results of hair transplants are long lasting. Transplanted hairs are typically harvested from the back or the sides of the head.

The nature of hair from such donor sites is that they are resistant to factors that contribute to androgenic hair loss. This is the reason why you’ll notice that men hardly lose hair at the back and sides of the head. Which is why we transplant hair from these areas.

Fifteen days after a hair transplant, the transplanted hair may fall off; this is normal. Two months after the procedure, new and normal hair growth may take place, taking up to nine months to fully regrow.

Important note: Hair transplants neither create more hair nor prevent further hair loss. But the transplanted hairs will be resistant to factors that contribute to male pattern baldness. Medication should be taken to slow down and prevent further hair loss. This is especially pertinent for the pre-existing native hairs of the recipient site that are susceptible to androgenic hair loss.

It is important that you do your research in your selection of a Hair Transplant provider; grafts that are transected (or damaged) during the procedure will NOT grow back.

How long is one SL Aesthetic Clinic Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant procedure?

SL Aesthetic Clinic Hair Transplants in Singapore are out-patient procedures. Patients are able to return home after.

On average, a hair transplant can take up to 6 to 10 hours, depending on the complexity of the surgery and number of grafts. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplants may take place in a single session, or multiple shorter sessions. This will be determined by the consulting doctor.

Is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant in Singapore painful?
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant uses local anaesthesia that is injected into the treatment areas. This limits your sensation felt during the procedure. Any post-procedural aches/tenderness can be managed with pain-relief medication.
Is there any downtime with Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant?

Recovery after a Hair Transplant in SL Aesthetic Clinic Singapore will largely depend on the number of grafts transplanted, with some patients going back to work or daily activities as soon as the next day.

Since hairs are individually harvested from the scalp during Hair Transplant (FUE), tiny 1mm dots will form. These marks can be hidden amongst hair and usually heal within three to seven days, after scabbing-over in the days following the procedure.

Of course, this will depend on the number of grafts harvested during Hair Transplant procedure.As a rule of thumb the more grafts are transplanted, the longer the downtime will be.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant is safe for most healthy adults, whether male or female.
