Hair Transplant (FUE Technique)

A type of hair transplant called follicular unit extraction (FUE) involves removing individual hair follicles from your skin and relocating them to an area of your body where hair is weaker or nonexistent.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplants are performed by extracting individual hair follicles from your skin and transplanting them to another location on your body. If you want your hair to look thicker in the new area, you can use a hair product that will make it look thicker. The FUE technique was designed to take the place of the "classic" follicular unit transplantation (FUT) technique. This method involves taking a piece of skin and the follicles it contains and transplanting it to the target area.

FUE has become more popular than FUT because it produces less visible hair plugs, which can be a problem with FUT. It is less likely to leave a large scar like FUT does. The best candidate for a hair transplant is someone with thinning hair or balding who has enough hair nearby to use for a transplant. To receive a FUE hair transplant, you need enough healthy, thick hair to transfer to the area where you want to receive hair restoration. If you do not have enough hair in this area, you may not be eligible. As you get older, your hair growth cycle will change. At first, hair will grow and regrow at a fast pace. But as you get older, the rate at which new hair grows will slow down. Eventually, you will only grow a few strands of hair at a time.

 

The receiving area is identified first. The hair follicles are then individually removed from the donor zone (back of the head) using a 0.7-0.9 size micron motor, and they are then stored in a specific solution until the implantation step begins. The surgeon makes a few tiny incisions on the recipient area after the extraction phase is over. The incision is made with the angle at which natural hair grows in mind. Then, one by one, the removed hair follicles are inserted into the incisions. Patients don't experience any pain because the entire process is done under local anaesthetic.
