Not for Tryphophobes! Scalp After Hair Transplant


Any idea about Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)?

It’s a permanent method of hair restoration.

No scalpel or stitches are required.

Sounds marvelous?

Ever wonder how we do it?

Minor shaving on donor site (hair length of 1.5-2mm) in order to observe the direction and angle of hair growth. Followed by donor site disinfection and local anesthesia injection. Image above shows extraction of follicular unit grafts by doctor with micropunch (0.8-1.0mm diameter).


Assistant pulls out the grafts with a tweezer.


Grafts are categorized according to number of hair.


Recipient site disinfection. Tiny holes are created on recipient site according to the natural density, angle and direction of hair growth.


Grafts are placed one by one.

Bloody worth it? Yes! Approximately 90% or more of the transplanted hair will grow within 3 to 6 months after the surgery.

  • Dear Dr Ko,
    Good evening. I have a few questions.
    1. Will hair grow back on the donor site?
    2. How long is the process for an area of approximately 20 X 12 cm?
    3. Any side effects for a diabetic and kidney disease patient like me?
    4. What would be the approximate cost?
