FUE is the technique used most often by Dr. Thierry Jacquemin and our Surgical Technician Patricia Salgado, where he utilizes his custom-designed FUE system to optimize hair growth while minimizing scarring.
With FUE, patients are able to shave the head in the future without worrying about any linear donor site scar. The transplanted hairs are placed into recipient sites in the scalp (or beard or eyebrows) for optimal hair growth direction, pattern, and angulation. Performed under oral sedation and local anesthesia.

With this modification on FUE, rather than shaving all the hairs in the donor area as with conventional FUE techniques, only the hairs that are to be harvested for transplanting are trimmed, leaving all the other surrounding hairs in the donor area their original length.
Hair loss and other changes affect different people in different ways. If you are suffering from hair loss or hair thinning and want to do something about it, I urge you to do your research, ask us questions, and then take action. When you are ready, we are here to help you restore and maintain a great looking head of hair. At Diolaser, we specialize in treating men and women who are looking to enhance, maintain or restore their hair.
In general, the vast majority of patients we treat are experiencing mild, moderate or severe hereditary hair loss-also known as male of female pattern hair loss-which is the most common type of hair loss. We also have medical solutions for other types of alopecia (hair loss). If you are experiencing thinning or receding hair, we encourage you to browse our website and learn about what you can do to address your hair loss concerns. Dr. Thierry Jacquemin is available to help you by designing a results-oriented treatment program.
Preparation for surgery begins with medical consultation. Evaluation is essential to plan all stages of the surgery. During the consultation, a medical interview and physical examination are carried out to diagnose the cause of hair loss.
In this step, the quality of the donor area is evaluated, where the hair will be removed for hair transplantation.
Alcoholic beverages should be avoided on the eve of surgery, and for as long as the patient makes use of postoperative medications.
Smoking should be avoided two weeks before and two weeks after the hair transplant.
First day after surgery
The patient returns to the clinic to remove the dressing and wash the hair, this procedure is important, as the patient will learn how to wash the hair in the days before the transplant.
We do not use any types of dressings after hair transplantation, for the patient's comfort. However, some precautions must be maintained:
Do not drive after surgery, go home with an escort or taxi.
Have a light, low-salt meal.
Keep taking your medications as normal.
Use a soft pillow, and a roller (soft rolled towel) under the neck to avoid resting directly on the transplanted area.
Reserve a bath towel just to dry your head.
Change the pillowcase every day.
Pool and sea only after 2 months of hair transplant.
Weight training, fights and extreme sports only after 2 months of the procedure.
Drink plenty of fluids (water, juice and coconut water).
You can wear a cap or hat as long as they are wide and clean.
Avoid wearing a helmet for the first three months.
