FUE Hair Transplant

FUE Hair Transplant Surgery

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is one of the most preferred methods of hair transplantation today.  Over the last years medical advances have bought forward numerous methods of hair transplantation, which are minimally invasive and give quick results and follicular unit extraction or excision tops this list.

In hair follicle transplantation procedures in India, individual follicular units are directly removed from the donor area. This means that the method is minimally invasive and no stiches are needed in the operated area or the transplant area. Hair loss affects over 80% of men and women around the world. A healthy hair is an expression of one’s identity and wellbeing. Hair loss results in a low morale and self-esteem. The hair transplantation procedure using follicular units produces natural results so that no one can distinguish any change from your previous self.

What is Follicular Unit Extraction FUE?

In hair transplant surgery using follicle transplant, individual follicular units are removed from the donor area. FUE hair transplantation ensures high quality of grafts as each graft is extracted by the hair transplant surgeon himself and there is minimal wastage and bleeding and very little post-operative discomfort.

FUE transplantation is different from follicular unit transplantation hair transplants because instead of microscopically dissecting the harvest strip of scalp the follicular units are taken directly from the scalp. FUE is more popular for hair transplant because it gives the hair specialist the flexibility to take as many or as little grafts as they want and FUE does not leave a scar like the FUT does.

This technique helps replenish the transplanted grafts and they are able to regenerate themselves easily and have greater viability and quality.

Robotic- FUE:

The robotic hair restoration system uses a surgeon assisted robots to remove the follicular units from the donor area.  This method is safer and has more efficacy as the surgeon can extract grafts in a speed up to 1000 grafts per hour. Robotic FUE is faster, simple, and less draining for the patient. The hair surgeon can complete the session of 700 grafts in less than two hours, which is two times lesser than the manual FUE technique.
