FUE Hair Transplant

FUE Hair Transplant

FUE  Hair Transplant  (Follicular Unit Extraction ) is a latest method of hair transplant. It differs from the FUT technique in that FUE does not leave visible scar at the back the head.

 

In FUE hair transplant, a small instrument is used to take out the hair root unit (graft) directly from the scalp. It does not involve cutting out strip of skin as in FUT hair transplant.

 

This process is repeated until the hair transplant surgeon has collected enough follicular units (grafts)  for the planned hair transplant. This process can take one or more hours. For large sessions, may be accomplished over two consecutive days.

 

The size if instrument is very small, approximately 0.7- 0.9 mm. Back of the head completely heal over the course of seven to ten days. Scars in FUE technique are very tiny white scars. They get buried in the surrounding hair. FUE is minimally invasive procedure resulting in less post-operative pain and restrictions in movement.

 

Thus in FUE technique of Hair Transplant, hair growth treatment, hair roots are taken one-by-one directly from the back of the head.

 

The extracted grafts (roots) are implanted in the bald area. This is done by creating tiny “recipient sites” (holes) using a fine instrument. The follicular units or grafts are then placed into the holes. These roots will grow into healthy hair-producing follicles.

 

The implantation procedure is essentially the same in both FUE and FUT procedures. The difference lies in the appearance of the donor area taken out in FUE technique.

Advantages of FUE Hair Transplant

  • FUE is good for patients who want to keep their hair very short after transplant. Because FUE does not leave a linear visible scar.
  • Recovery after FUE is faster. Patient can resume their activities soon after the procedure. It is an advantage for those involved in very strenuous activities, such as professional athletes.
  • For patients having a very tight scalp, FUE hair transplant is recommended because stitching of FUT becomes difficult.
  • FUE hair transplant also allows the surgeon to remove hair from other parts of the body such as the beard, chest, back,legs etc. This is very helpful in people who do not have sufficient donor hair at the back of the head.
  • Possibly the most straight-forward application of this technique is to camouflage a linear donor scar from a prior hair transplant procedure. In this technique, a small amount of hair is extracted from the area around a linear donor scar and then placed directly into scar.
  • Some patients desire FUE hair transplant simply because they heard that FUE is less invasive. In FUE there are multiple round incisions scattered diffusely through the donor area and in FUT there is one single, long incision in the middle of the donor area.
