FUE (Follicular unit extraction) is a latest hair transplant technique in which follicular units from a patient's bald resistant donor areas (i,e any where in body having hairs) is extracted using small round punch. Which contains 1, 2, 3 and 4 hair follicular unit grafts are then transplanted into a patient's balding or desired (Head,Eyebrow,eyelashes,Beard, mustache or any place to fill a scar in head etc)areas. The number of graft depent on the are here the hair have to be implanted. Our physician is often limited to transplanting 1500 to 2000 follicular unit grafts in one day maintaining the quality of the surgery. The cost per graft of FUE is also typically higher then the cost of the standard follicular unit hair transplant (FUT) procedure in which a strip of donor tissue is removed from the back of the head and trimmed under magnification into individual follicular unit grafts.Patients are given local anesthesia in the donor and recipient areas. Once the anesthesia is given to the Patients feel no pain or uneasiness during the hair tranplant surgery.
During the procedure Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE individual follicular unit grafts are excised one at a time using a tiny one millimeter or less sized punch. The patient's hair in the donor area where these grafts are being removed is cut short so that the physician is able to see the patient's scalp.
The follicular units are extracted using a multiple step process. First a small sharp punch scores the skin around a follicular unit. Then a small dull punch is used to go deeper into the soft tissue surrounding the follicular unit.However, the dull punch tends to envelope the follicular unit, while separating it from the surrounding soft tissues.Once the underlying follicular unit is separated from the surrounding tissues it can then be extracted, often by a forceps gripping the hair.
The process is completly stitchless and the hairs which grows are natural hairs which grows like natural hairs,which can go under cutting ,combing and oiling as your natural hair.
