Follicular Unit Extraction is a modern hair transplant technique that involves the extraction of individual hair follicles from a donor site. It’s a minimally invasive hair restoration procedure that demands careful precision to achieve the best results. Svenson is a leading FUE hair transplant clinic in the Philippines with expert treatment and aftercare. We have perfected hair implant techniques to help clients get back natural-looking hair that regrows along with their confidence.
How Does the FUE Procedure Work?
Follicular unit extraction works by extracting individual follicles — typically groups of one to four hairs — from a donor site and transplanting these to the thinning or balding areas of the scalp. The extraction method utilizes a micro surgical extraction instrument to remove the follicles. The instrument is between 0.6 mm and 1.0 mm in diameter.
The surgeon, with the use of specialist micro surgical needles, will then puncture the recipient area of the scalp to receive the grafts. A follicular unit extraction can be finished in either several small sessions or in one long session. While the procedure tends to take longer than strip surgery, it doesn’t leave the typical and obvious scars of FUT.
The length of a follicular unit extraction procedure varies, but it usually depends on the number of grafts needed. A smaller procedure, where only 500 grafts are needed, can be done in a couple of hours. However, larger numbers of 3,000 to 4,000 grafts will require sessions that can take up to 2 to 3 days.
As a leading FUE hair transplant clinic, our board-certified surgeons are experts at inserting the grafts at the perfect angle and density to match your original hair. This ensures that the pattern and distribution resemble your natural hair.

What makes our service the best FUE hair transplant method is the way our experienced specialists carefully map your hair growth before implantation. This ensures they know where and on what angle to carefully place each follicle.
Unlike FUT strip surgery, FUE does not require large areas of the scalp to be collected or harvested. It also won’t leave a linear incision or scar on the back of your head. As individual follicles are removed, they will only leave small puncture scars, which are virtually invisible to the naked eye. You will also hardly experience any post-surgical discomfort or pain – with the average recovery or downtime being less than a week.
