Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)



Introduction

The follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit graft (FUG) hair transplantation techniques are the most common ways of removing unwanted hair from your scalp. With these two procedures, you can remove small groups of your own hair and then place them in different areas of your body where they will eventually grow back naturally. These procedures have been compared to other forms of surgery because they involve removing individual or small groups of hair from the back and sides of the head. This enables us to create a natural looking appearance with minimal scarring.


Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is one of the most recent advancements in hair restoration.


Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is one of the most recent advancements in hair restoration. It was first developed by Dr. Bernstein in the late 1990s and uses a device called an "electrode" to remove individual follicles from the donor area and place them in your skin at home. This minimally invasive procedure allows for better results than traditional strip excision procedures, which require permanent scarring on your face or neck area, as well as delayed healing time due to tiny incisions made during surgery.


By harvesting individual follicular units (groups of 1-4 hairs), this procedure can provide the most natural looking results and minimal scarring.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a minimally invasive procedure that involves harvesting individual follicular units (groups of 1-4 hairs) from the back and sides of your scalp, and transplanting them to the front and top. The best way to describe this technique is as "individual follicular unit" transplants. By harvesting individual follicular units, this procedure can provide the most natural looking results and minimal scarring.

The most noticeable benefits of FUE is that there are no linear incisions and therefore no linear scars. With a very short healing time and minimal pain, it also allows people to return to normal activities very quickly.

There is one other important difference between FUT and FUE: the number of follicles required for each surgery. In general terms, when performing an FUT procedure you will harvest more hairs from your donor area (the back) than when performing an FUE procedure on a patient's scalp; however this can vary depending on individual factors such as hair density and skin tone as well as age – so please discuss this with us before proceeding with your treatment plan!


The FUE procedure starts with shaving the donor area where the hair will be extracted.

Shaving the donor area is a necessary step in order to reduce the risk of infection, scarring and pain. The follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedure begins with an incision made around the hairline, which allows for easier access when extracting each graft.


Next, using a small punch, a hair follicle is removed from the patient's head. This process causes minor damage to the skin and therefore leaves a small circular scar that is virtually undetectable once healed.


The extraction process continues until enough hairs have been removed to fill any desired areas on the head or face.

This method is relatively new for patients who want to restore their appearance after losing too much hair due to chemotherapy treatments, an illness like cancer or other medical conditions such as alopecia areata (a genetic condition that causes baldness)


Each graft should be prepared in such a way that it will cause as little damage as possible when being implanted back into the donor area on your scalp. Once they are ready, holes will be created in your scalp into which the grafts can be placed.

To create these holes:

  • For each graft you receive, use tweezers to gently pull it apart from its tissue base and make sure there are no remaining fibers attached to it. This step may seem tedious but it is important because if any leftover pieces remain attached to the graft during transplantation they may cause inflammation or scarring which could result in rejection of your new follicles later on down the line (more on this later).

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a hair transplantation procedure that removes individual follicular units from the donor area and then implants them into the recipient area.

Follicular Unit Extraction is performed using a microscope to identify individual hair follicles, which are then extracted with a small needle or surgical blade. This process can be done without anesthesia because it occurs under local or general anesthesia only if necessary for safety reasons, such as if you need to extract all of your transplanted hairs in one sitting so that you don't have long-term side effects like infection or scarring from multiple surgeries.


Follicular Unit Graft (FUG)

Follicular Unit Graft (FUG) is a hair transplant technique that uses a strip of skin from the back of your head. It is one of the most common methods for treating hair loss in men and women, especially those who have thinning or balding areas on their scalp. The procedure can be done under local anesthesia or general anesthesia depending on your preference and how much pain you’re willing to endure during surgery.

The surgeon extracts small patches from each side of your head using an 18-gauge needle and then sutures them together at the base so they appear like one large patch instead of many individual grafts that would normally be used with other methods like Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).


Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), advantage and disadvantage.


The advantage of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is that there are no linear incisions, which means that you have a quicker healing time. You may also experience minimal pain during your procedure and can return to normal activities very quickly after treatment.

The disadvantage is that it takes longer than follicular unit grafting because the surgeon has to remove one or more hairs at a time rather than removing several hairs at once. If done correctly, this method should not affect the number of remaining follicles in your scalp by more than 20%.

Choosing the right method of hair transplant

Choosing the right method of hair transplant depends on your goals. The most popular method, FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction), is a surgical procedure that involves removing individual follicles from your scalp and inserting them into thin strips of donor tissue. It's relatively quick to perform, but it may not guarantee a natural-looking result because of the number of transplanted hairs per square inch.

FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) is similar in nature to FUE but uses larger grafts from donor sites rather than smaller ones from your scalp during surgery; this makes it more effective at producing larger amounts of healthy hair growth over time and helps ensure that you get an image that looks more natural than if you had only used one large strip instead of several smaller ones spaced out along your scalp for coverage purposes.*


You should pick the best hair transplant technique for you.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a technique in which the surgeon extracts individual follicles from the patient's scalp. The advantage of this method is that it does not require any stitches or incisions, making it more comfortable for patients. However, there are several disadvantages to this procedure as well:

  • It involves an increased risk of scarring and rejection compared to other types of hair transplant methods due to its invasive nature

  • It doesn't work on everyone because some people have too many hairs on their head while others don't have enough follicles

Conclusion

The FUE technique is a great option for people who want to have hair transplanted but don't want any scarring. It's one of many different techniques available, so it's important that you choose the best method for you. The FUE technique is also the most recent advancement in hair restoration and has been praised by many experts as the most natural looking results and minimal scarring. The FUE procedure works by removing individual or small groups of hair from the back and sides of head which are then transplanted onto areas where needed.
