The magic behind FUE hair transplants

Coping with hair loss can be challenging, affecting not only your appearance but also your self-esteem. Our FUE hair transplant service ensures a gentle and effective solution to restore not just your hair, but also your confidence. FUE involves extracting healthy hair follicles from a donor area (usually the sides of the head or back of the neck) and grafting them onto thinning or bald areas. These may include your beard, eyebrows, hairline or other areas of concern on the scalp. Follicles are taken using an extraction instrument less than 1 mm in diameter and implanted using a powerful stereo microscope. Our team carefully implants the hairs at the right angle, replicating the way your original hair grows.

Who can benefit from FUE?

An FUE hair transplant may be suitable if you:

  • Experience pattern baldness or thinning
  • Seek less discomfort and downtime post-procedure
  • Are concerned about visible scarring
  • Prefer a procedure with minimal activity restrictions

How it works


The recipient area is numbed completely with local anaesthetic, ensuring the patient feels at ease from start to finish.


The hairs on your scalp have their own ‘follicular unit’ which is composed of one to four hairs with various key components allowing it to survive. 

During extraction, a specialised micro-punch device delicately punctures the skin around the follicle, about one to two millimetres from the surface. Then, each unit or graft is individually extracted. The device separates surrounding tissue from the unit, minimising trauma to the surrounding areas. 

A powerful magnifying glass is used to ensure precise outcomes. This method allows the follicles to be removed without leaving a linear scalp scar.


Follicles are grouped based on thickness, bulb size and the number of hairs. Having enough variations ultimately yields the most authentic-looking results possible.

Once follicles have been selected, they are manually implanted into the targeted area of the scalp. An implanter tool gently penetrates the skin, so the follicle can be placed just one millimetre below the surface. Only tiny incisions are made in the scalp to minimise obvious scarring.

Our team has undergone rigorous training to perfect the procedure and guarantee that only the healthiest hair follicles are selected for extraction.

Aftercare and healing

Unlike other hair transplant procedures, the initial recovery phase of FUE is quick and relatively painless:

  • 7 to 10 days after the procedure — Kick back and relax! Give your body the time it needs to rejuvenate.
  • Months 1 to 4 — Patience is key. Stick with the process as your transplanted hair begins its growth journey.
  • Months 4 to 6 — Observe as the transplanted hairs begin to emerge.
  • Month 7 — With a fresh surge of confidence, get ready to flaunt the new version of yourself!

The benefits of FUE hair transplants

Fuller thicker hair

FUE promises not just fuller, thicker hair, but also a natural-looking finish. The precise harvesting technique reduces trauma to your follicles, promoting the growth of healthier strands as you recover. 

Minimal discomfort and scarring

FUE doesn’t require stitches or result in linear scarring. It leaves only tiny, dot-like scars that are practically invisible even with short hair or a shaved head.

FUE hair transplants deliver excellent results and complications are rare. Any discomfort or visible signs of surgery typically subside within a week, ensuring a smooth and quick healing process.

Affordable and convenient

FUE offers a cost-effective way to achieve that perfect look. The total cost of the procedure depends on the degree of hair loss and the number of grafts needed. While more grafts may require a bit more money, the permanent results make it a worthwhile investment.

Elite Hair Clinic offers competitive rates and financing options. We’ve teamed up with The Lifestyle Credit (TLC) to provide flexible payment plans, making your hair transformation journey affordable and stress-free.

Swift recovery

Since it’s minimally invasive, FUE requires minimal downtime. Typically, patients can engage in light activities within a week and resume their regular activities within a month.

Flexibility in donor areas

With FUE, hair follicles can be taken from the beard, scalp or other body areas. This flexibility allows doctors to choose the best donor site according to the patient’s unique needs.

FUE vs FUT: What’s the difference?

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), also known as the strip method, is the traditional way to transplant and regrow hair.

Here’s how it works: first, a strip of scalp is surgically removed and stitched up. Then, the doctor separates that strip into smaller pieces, or grafts, containing hair follicles. Using a needle or blade and a microscope, the doctor makes small holes in the scalp where the grafts are inserted. Finally, the surgical site is covered with bandages.

In FUE, follicular units are individually extracted, resulting in punctiform scars that are less noticeable than a linear scar. Additionally, the absence of stitches allows for faster healing of all incisions.

The procedure generally spans a full day. We advise our patients to arrive at 7:15 AM with a full or light stomach.

Unlike other clinics, we actually prefer our patients to stay conscious during the procedure. This allows ongoing communication with our team, creating a more engaged and comfortable experience.

Not at all! Besides the mild discomfort during the application of the initial local anaesthetic, the entire process should be smooth and pain-free.

My husband done his procedure with Elite Hair Clinic and their work and service was second to none!! We wouldn’t recommend anyone else !! Their service was amazing from pre to post procedure!!
I had my procedure on the 10th of August. Thelma, Rojeh and Dr Will were very polite and friendly and they treat customers very well. Elite clinic are very professional and they work as a great team with all of their other staff. I was quite pleased during the procedure and Rojeh gave me the confidence throughout it.Edit: After 6 months, I have seen incredible results and they have done an amazing job. I highly recommend Elite Clinic and the team are great at what they do.
Had hair transplant yesterday. Couldn’t be happier with my choice of clinic. Was long day but was kept comfortable throughout the day being given lunch, treats and even a blanket. Minor to no pain during the whole day. Professionalism and commitment and communication are next level. I will be blogging my journey over the next 12mths on Insta and TikTok @LukeyBarber . So keen and excited. Thanks to all the team at Elite Hair Clinic
If you’re in search of a professional picture perfect team, look no further than elite hair clinic. These guys are awesome and they were all really helpful and amazing from start to end. Thank you guys.

Yes, I too was a skeptic and didn't really believe what I saw online was possible...I got recommended Elite Hair by a work colleague (who I used as a live case study!) and I did an online consultation with Thelma who helped give me an indication of if the operation was possible, and at what cost. I came down to the office for my operation and it's safe to say that the whole team at Elite were amazing. I felt very welcome and safe, and they even kept me entertained for hours whilst I was being operated on. Fast forward to just over 4 months post op and for the first time in 20ish years I have a front hairline. I have had so many compliments on my hair, and even friends telling me that I look 10 years younger, I am very happy. Yes, its still a bit patchy at the moment but I had a big op (5400 grafts) due to my baldness and I expect this to continue to gain density over the coming months... It is a long operation (and process), so patience is a virtue! Thanks Dr Will and team for an amazing job, I really appreciate all your help. I highly recommend the Elite team!!

Just had a 2900 graft hair transplant yesterday 🙂 They bought me lunch gave me all my post meds, travel pillow, shower caps, saline spray you name it in all in little bag at the end of surgery. Followed up today reminded that there’s a post care number handy if I had any further questions. The team are so casual like but efficient and very professional couldn’t fault a thing. For how much I paid you couldn’t get this service anywhere else in Sydney. I had “5” technicians handling my transplant procedure with the guidance of Dr Will. Thelma, Rami, Roger, Gabby thank you all very much highly recommend! Very happy **thumbs up**
I went to see Dr. Will. He advised to not get Hair Transplant at this stage! Medical therapy advised and I really appreciate the honesty! Strongly advise to come here, great care!

The team are amazing! Very professional and talented!I couldn’t recommend them more.
First and foremost, I plan to keep this review updated!I’m 30 years old and began losing hair a few years ago, mainly around the temple area. It worsened recently and significantly affected my confidence. From beach outings to Instagram posts, everything felt impacted. I knew a proper hair transplant was necessary, so I ventured into various treatments, from Minoxidil to rosemary oil. While these treatments somewhat halted the hair loss, regrowth of lost hair was still an issue.After a quick Google search, I came across several clinics in Sydney. They all seemed similar until I spoke with Dr. Will and later Dr. Thelma. Both were outstanding in their professionalism and empathy. They provided clear, realistic expectations without any false hope or unnecessary drama.Once I felt confident in their expertise, I made my decision within a month. Yesterday, I underwent the procedure. It involved 1,600 grafts, focusing on complete hairline restoration, and took approximately 7 hours, just as expected.What stood out most was the incredible team at the clinic. Every staff member was exceptionally kind, friendly, and professional. The atmosphere was so welcoming that at times, it felt like being in a shared house with friends.Overall, the experience at Elite Hair Clinic was beyond my expectations. I’m looking forward to seeing the full results and will update this review as my journey progresses.
Could not recommend Elite Hair Clinic enough! I flew from London to get my procedure done here and not only was it super affordable, the care you get from the team is insane! They truly work like a family and it shows in the service they provide. Everything from pre-op to post-op was exceptional. They check on you every single step of the way. The lunch they provide is exceptional too and the chat before and during the procedure is to the highest standards of professionalism, skill and care. Would recommend anyone to come here. Truly the best hair transplant clinic and I’ve done tons of research and visits across the UK, Australia, Turkey, Brazil and HK. Here are some pics of me *before* the procedure (i wanted my temples and hairline corrected), and another pic a few hours after the procedure. So happy with everything, thank you Team.

Solved my problem perfectly,
Huge thanks to Dr Will, Rodger and the rest of the team - from the group of girls planting my hairs, Gio(I think) cutting and counting my hairs, and the other girls and guys involved in the process, sorry that I don’t remember all of your names!From my initial enquiry I was contacted directly by Dr Will and the whole process was so easy and straight forward, he is very down to earth and honest with expectations and the reality of the whole procedure. On the day I was made to feel at ease and looked after properly, despite a fear of needles Dr Will made me feel very comfortable and the process after that was completely painless.I am glad I chose elite hair clinic and I would recommend anyone considering a hair transplant to reach out to these guys, you will notice straight away the level of consideration rather than going to a huge company that performs all kinds of cosmetics. I should also mentioned they provide a 24 hours aftercare service for the duration of your recovery and also offer the option to go in for dressing changes and scab removal if you choose to do so, which you wouldn’t get going overseas and the cost wasn’t much higher when you take into account flights.Looking forward to seeing the results, thanks again so much everyone!

I went in and had the FUE procedure yesterday and today. The outcome will only be known in the fullness of time and I understand results are individual, however the customer service and care I received was top shelf. I was looked after and treated by a great team with all the staff so friendly and engaging. It was hard for me initially to select where I was going to choose to get this done, but my consultant with Dr Will put me at ease and all the information he provided was spot on and played out just as he indicated. The building and rooms where the procedure was carried out is quality and really comfortable. I would definitely recommend Elite and fingers crossed the outcome of today's procedure is equal to the amazing experience I have had over the past two days. Also......it looks more painful than it actually is, walk in the park. Good luck to you if this is a path you choose to go down.

The whole process from start to finish for my first hair transplant was super seamless, and all the staff made sure I was comfortable throughout the whole procedure. Not once did I feel stressed or uncomfortable. Their attention to detail and aftercare has helped me a lot with this new journey. I flew in from NZ, and it has made me feel like it was worth the trip! Thank you to the whole team for taking care of me! Absolutely recommend them if you are considering a hair transplant!
I was very nervous before my procedure and they made me feel reassured and confident before my procedure! They were not only welcoming, hospitable and amazing but more importantly they were very good at what they do! Everyone’s got their own role and they all perform it perfectly. One of the best experiences and places of business I’ve ever been too! Highly recommend it and would give it 6 stars if I could!!! Thanks again guys!!!

The team regularly checked up on me and even provided lunch which was wonderful.The best part is they prepared a care package for the days to follow, which made the most confusing part so easy!!My sculp is already healing, can't wait to try some new hair styles!! 🙂

I had my procedure done yesterday at Elite Hair Clinic after canceling my Turkey appointment. I really wanted to have access to the clinic and direct local communication with the doctor and team after the procedure and that felt more comfortable and safe and I could not be happier with my decision. Also I have to mention that their pricing is very competitive and very fair. From the moment I arrived in the morning I was greeted warmly and made to feel very comfortable and then when Doctor Will and Thelma arrived and had a chat with me I was feeling more at ease because as expected I was a bit nervous at first. Dr Will was very helpful with designing my front hairline and helped me make the final decision with his professional opinion. Thelma and the team were lovely and I knew I was in good hands because it felt like the team was like a family working together and I appreciated that. Everyone was so attentive and accommodating. I am now recovering very well and cannot wait to see the final result in the coming months. If you are thinking about doing the procedure then I 100% recommend Elite Hair Clinic and the team.
I did my hair transplant a week ago and I had a fantastic experience at the Elite Hair Clinic. The staff was incredibly professional and caring throughout the entire process. Dr. Will was skilled and attentive, addressing all my concerns since the consultation until the day of the procedure. Giovanni was super professional and caring. He explained to me all the process, the medication I was taking and every step of the procedure so I was comfortable and feeling in the best hands the whole day. Thank you also to Lady who was super welcoming and friendly and to Drs Rojeh and Ava who did an amazing job. The results exceeded my expectations, and I'm thrilled with my new hairline. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone considering a hair transplant in Sydney.
