FUE hair transplant

FUE hair transplant (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplant is a technique in which the hair transplant surgeon removes the follicular units one by one from the dense area or donor scalp area and transplant them to the bald area or recipient area.

In the FUE hair transplant technique, the plastic surgeon extracts the follicles from your scalp one by one instead of a single strip as like in FUT method.

With the help of punches, (0.8mm, 0.9mm, 1mm), the plastic  surgeon extracts follicles from donor area

Generally, 2-4 strands of hair are in each unit. Thereafter, the plastic surgeon transplants these units on the balding areas of the scalp.
This method is good for those people who have very tight scalp so they can’t undergo FUT technique or those who like to wear short hair.

What happens in FUE hair transplant method?

Let’s know in detail what happens in FUE hair transplant method:

  • Firstly, the doctor numbs your scalp using anesthesia.

  • Then he makes a circular incision around a follicular unit, using a punch, to isolate a graft.
  • Thereafter, the experts separate the follicle from the adjacent fatty tissue under high observation.
  • Before harvesting these follicles, the doctor does tiny holes in those areas, where they need to transplant.
  • Then the doctor places these follicles on those holes.

Benefits of the FUE over FUT hair transplant method:

  • Less invasive technique as compared to FUT..
  • Ideal for patients suffering hair loss at the early stages.

  • FUE hair transplant method doesn’t leave any scar after the hair transplant surgery.
