How Long Does the FUE Procedure Take?

With time, hair transplant surgeries are getting better as they offer better results while minimizing the down time a person faces in their wake. The lesser invasive nature of these procedures mean that they cause lesser pain and discomfort in comparison with older options. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is the most modern option available at this point in time. The hair follicles are extracted through a punching mechanism which gives a follicular unit ready for being transplanted without any dissecting required.  It is best known to not leave a linear scar in the donor area on the lines of the strip method. The recovery time from the surgery is also lesser than that required in other methods.

Amongst the most commonly asked question about FUE procedure is that how long does it take? It is a question that has no definitive answer since there are a number of factors that must be considered to know exactly how long.

Type of FUE

Type of FUE

There are a number of options within FUE as to how the procedure is done. The extraction may be done with a punch manually in the manual FUE or a robot may be used for the purpose which takes lesser amount of time in the extraction process. Certain other types such as motorized FUE and Stem Cell FUE may take a different time period.

Number of GraftsNumber of Grafts

The number of grafts also is an important factor in how long the FUE procedure will take. In case of a small number of grafts required to be transplanted, lesser time is taken due to lesser extraction and fewer incisions to be made in the recipient area. However, in case of a large number of grafts to be done, both extraction and insertion will take longer time. so you have to be patient while having a surgery.

The Surgeon

The amount of time taken also will vary with each surgeon. Everyone has their own pace at which they like to operate. This is an individual variation is very natural.

The Final TimeThe Final Time

In most cases, the FUE procedure will last for eight hours or less. If there are small areas to be taken care of, it may take a lot less than that. If the number of grafts is large, it may need more than one long session.  At the end of the day, all the above factors will decide how long the procedure eventually takes.
