Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE is a surgical hair transplant procedure to revive the lost hair. Prior to going to the procedure steps, it’s necessary to have a little bit of understanding of the hair structure. The hair shafts could be observed above the epidermis and also the follicular units stay on the surface. A hair thinning unit consists of 1-4 hairs. The main objective of the hair transplant process would be to relocate the intra-follicular units from the donor site (usually, the trunk side of the mind ) to the recipient (bald) areas.
In the FUE hair transplant process, the follicular units are extracted individually from the scalp using a small, sharp cylindrical punch. The extracted follicular units are then transplanted into the recipient area individually. The process employs an automated extraction tool to remove the grafts and then place them in the recipient area. FUE doesn’t need stitches or sutures.
A micro-punching tool and needle device is used to extract the individual follicular units. After that, the graft is extracted directly from the scalp and prepare them for implantation. To have an optimal visualization, the doctor may shave the donor area.
Results will be visible after a few months. Within these months, hair will start to grow in the grafted areas. These hairs look natural and stay permanent.
