What is Afro FUE Hair Treatment?

Afro FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Hair Treatment is a specialised hair transplant procedure tailored for individuals with Afro-textured hair. Despite using the same basic techniques as other hair transplants, Afro hair requires unique considerations due to its distinct characteristics. Afro hair typically has a lower density but appears voluminous due to its curliness. The hair’s curl pattern extends beneath the skin, necessitating specific adjustments during the transplantation process.

Reasons to Have Afro FUE Hair Treatment

Choosing Afro FUE Hair Treatment can address several hair-related concerns specific to Afro-textured hair:
  1. Hair Loss: For individuals experiencing thinning or balding, this treatment offers a solution that considers the unique texture of Afro hair.
  2. Volume Enhancement: The procedure can enhance the appearance of fullness and volume, even with fewer hair grafts.
  3. Natural Appearance: The treatment is designed to provide a natural-looking result, aligning with the natural curl and kink of Afro hair.
  4. Specialised Care: The procedure takes into account the thicker, tougher nature of black skin and the potential for keloid formation, ensuring a safer and more effective treatment.

Benefits of Afro FUE Hair Treatment

  1. Natural Volume: The curliness of Afro hair can create a fuller look, even with fewer grafts.
  2. Personalised Approach: The treatment is customised to handle the unique characteristics of Afro-textured hair, from the curl pattern to skin thickness.
  3. Minimally Invasive: As an FUE procedure, it offers a minimally invasive option with a lower risk of scarring compared to the strip (FUT) method.
  4. Versatility: Suitable for both men and women with various types of Afro hair, including mixed-race individuals with looser curls.

What the Treatment Involves

  1. Consultation: A detailed consultation to assess hair type, density, and specific needs.
  2. Preparation: Hair and scalp preparation, considering the potential for keloid formation and the thicker nature of black skin.
  3. Extraction: Carefully extracting hair follicles, taking into account the curl pattern beneath the skin. If FUE proves challenging, a switch to the strip (FUT) method may be necessary.
  4. Implantation: Implanting hair grafts into slightly larger incisions to accommodate the curliness of Afro hair, ensuring they are placed at the right density and angle.
  5. Recovery: Minimal downtime with instructions on how to care for the transplanted area to ensure optimal healing and results.


Typical Number of Hair Transplant Grafts

Our images illustrate the typical number of grafts required for different areas of the scalp. For the Crown, a typical range of 800-1200 grafts is usually sufficient to achieve natural-looking results. The Hairline often requires 800-1500 grafts to recreate a defined and youthful appearance. Addressing the Front Third of the scalp typically involves 2000-2500 grafts, while the Front Half may need 2500-3000 grafts for fuller coverage. For comprehensive restoration, the Front Two Thirds of the scalp generally necessitates 3000-4000 grafts. These ranges provide a guide to help you understand the scope of the procedure and the meticulous planning involved in achieving optimal hair restoration. Our expert team is dedicated to ensuring that every graft is placed with precision to deliver the best possible results.
