About Hair Transplant FUE Method

Hair Transplant FUE Method is a cosmetic surgery performed on men and women who have a significant amount of hair loss, thinning hair or bald spots where there is no longer any hair growth. The procedure can enhance the appearance and self-confidence of patients. There are 2 main techniques used in a hair transplantation

FUE method – Follicular Unit Extraction. The FUE method is a new method of hair transplantation which follicular units are removed individually from the donor site, so this means that the follicles will remain in the same state and grow normally in the recipient site.

FUT method – Follicular Unit Transplantation. The FUT method is which a strip of scalp is cut and removed from the back of the head and dissected into tiny grafts.

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Procedure

The patient’s hair will be trimmed short so the surgeon is able to visualize and work optimally on the scalp and on each donor follicle. The surgeon will start the hair transplant FUE by giving the patient local anesthesia to numb the area, and then using an automated FUE system device, the surgeon will remove follicular units individually from the scalp. The device will make a tiny circular incision around the follicular unit to isolate the graft. The scalp is prepared with high-powered stereomicroscopes.  Follicular units are arranged into groups depending on the number of hairs contained within the follicle. The follicles are then placed onto the bald areas carefully.
