Fue Hair Transplant
The FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method is another technique commonly used in hair transplantation. It is a minimally invasive procedure that involves extracting individual hair follicles from the donor area and implanting them into the recipient area.
Here’s an overview of Hair Transplant (FUE method):
1. Donor Area Shaving: The donor area (usually the back or sides of the head) is shaved to facilitate the extraction process. The remaining hair in the donor area helps to camouflage any visible signs of the procedure.
2. Individual Follicle Extraction: Using a specialized instrument such as a micro punch or a microneedle, individual hair follicles are extracted from the donor area. The surgeon carefully removes the follicles one by one, taking into account the natural groupings of hairs called follicular units.
3. Follicle Preparation: Once extracted, the harvested follicles are carefully sorted and prepared for implantation. This may involve trimming any excess tissue and separating the follicles based on their size and quality.
4. Recipient Area Preparation: Before implantation, the recipient area (bald or thinning area) is cleaned and numbed with local anesthesia. Tiny incisions or slits are made in the recipient area where the hair follicles will be inserted.
5. Implantation: The prepared hair follicles are then implanted into the recipient area using forceps, twezeers or other implantation tools. The surgeon strategically places the follicles at the correct angle and depth to achieve a natural-looking hairline and optimal density.
6. Healing and Growth: After the procedure, the implanted hair follicles enter a healing phase. The transplanted hairs typically shed within a few weeks, but new hair growth should begin within a few months. Over time, the transplanted hair follicles should continue to grow and blend in with the existing hair.
The FUE method is known for its ability to achieve natural-looking results with minimal scarring. Since the follicles are extracted individually, there is no need for a linear incision or stitches in the donor area, resulting in tiny, dot-like scars that are less noticeable. The recovery time is generally shorter compared to other hair transplantation techniques.
It’s important to note that both the DHI and FUE methods are effective hair transplantation techniques, and the choice between them depends on various factors such as the patient’s specific needs, hair characteristics, and the surgeon’s expertise. Consult with our hair transplant specialist is crucial to determine the most suitable method for your individual case.
