FUE Hair Transplant
FUE involves manual removal of hair follicle from donor site, thus there is little or no damage to donor site. Donor site for this procedure usually is back of the head. This portion of head is genetically immune to baldness. Their roots are sought to be insensitive and last long life. Compared to FUT their invasion is very less hence fast recovery is estimated.
Also regrowth of hair is in natural pattern which is most satisfying to the patients. Cases in which follicular unit extractions are needed when donor site is exhausted. In cases where donor site is unhealthy, graft cannot be taken. Thus using follicular unit extraction only follicles can be extracted from other sites such as beard, chest hair or in some cases eyebrow.
Few advantages of FUE
- Minimum invasion- 0.6 to 0.8mm of wound occurs in removal of hair follicle. This is very less compared to 4-5cm wound caused when large patch of skin is removed.
- Satisfying results- large quantity of follicles can integrated in one session hence even patient with severe balding see great results.
- Fast recovery- as the size of wound is small it heals fast. Normally 10-14 is enough for the entire healing process with no ill-effects post-surgery.
