F U E Follicular Unit Extraction
If you have lost hairs it is very much possible that you would also have lost any hopes for hair restoration as it was once considered next to impossible. With advent of hair transplant surgery, people worried about hair fall or have fallen victims to complete hair loss what is called baldness can now get benefited from this surgery.
Although people have been obtaining hair regrowth from the conventional strip hair transplant from quite some time now but the latest FUE hair transplant or Follicular Unit Extraction has really created a revolution in this field.
For those who are not much familiar with this latest and perhaps the best of all other hair loss solutions, below given are some major points:
- Does not involve any cut such as removal of the scalp from the donor area so no scars are left once the procedure is completed.
- The hairs are removed from the donor area one by one with the help of specialized and so called micro instruments.
- After removing required number of hairs, the surgeon starts grafting them in the desired hair less area of the scalp.
- The procedure altogether takes one or more hours and, in large sessions, may be accomplished over two consecutive days.
- There are no scars and the wounds are hardly of 1-mm in size that completely heal over no more than seven to ten days.
- Only some tiny white scars are left behind which are not noticeable and normally hidden in the hair in the back and sides of the scalp.
- Certain tiny “recipient sites” are made in the hairless regions of the scalp with the help of fine needle-pointed instruments in which the grafts are inserted.
- The entire donor area has to be shaved because FUE harvesting requires a much larger area compared to strip harvesting along with large sessions.
- Since there no incisions involved in the procedure and no sutures, the patients can carry on with any strenuous activities within few days after surgery.
- Choice of FUE hair transplant or the strip removal method can be made after detailed consultation from the surgeon.
