FUE Hair Transplant Technique

Nowadays, FUE hair transplant is commonly chosen to treat hair and prevent baldness. The advanced technology is required in this method in order to help the patient get their confidence back with the growth of the hair. The method of FUE hair transplant is usually called follicular unit extraction. The major concept of the method is harvesting hair from certain donor site. The experts use precision tools to apply the method. Hair on certain area is harvested for the balding areas. The idea of the method seems simple but it requires advanced technology to ensure the effect.
It is mainly the extraction process, the manner in which the hairs are harvested, that differs between the two major techniques. The FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method almost always takes longer than the Strip, unless there is a very small area that is receiving the hair transplant. The reason why the FUE takes longer is because the extraction process is difficult and requires a very high degree of skill and precision. During the FUE, the doctor will extract each hair follicle manually, by hand. Since each single follicle is extracted individually this is a time consuming procedure. The benefit is that controlled and careful extraction of donor hair is very soft to the skin and scalp. It is very hard to notice for scars even after only a few weeks. Complications are very rare.
FUE hair transplant surgery is better and comfortable as compared to the older hair transplantation procedures that used larger grafts and often produced a plugged, unnatural look.

How a FUE Hair Transplant Works

The follicular unit extraction is removed using a multiple step process. During the first step, also called FUE (Follicullar Unit Extraction), direct extraction of follicular units from the patient's donor area is performed. It allows the surgeon to select individual follicular units from a donor region in a pattern that virtually solves the potential problem of visibly lower donor area density after the procedure. The surgeon uses a small punch (a sort of a special needle) (0.75 - 0.9 mm diameter) to pluck out the follicular units, eliminating the need for removal of skin from the back of the head. Benefits of FUE are: a quicker healing time, far less trauma, no strip scar, and the surgeon's ability to individually select follicular units. Discomfort in the donor area has been practically eliminated.
As the route and angle of the follicular unit under the skin can't be seen and can often vary from the direction of the hair on the surface, a sharp punch if used below the surface of the skin might transect or severe the underlying follicular unit. However, the dull punch tends to cover the follicular unit, while separating it from the surrounding soft tissues. This process is typically referred to as blunt dissection.

After the follicle is extracted a small hole is left behind which heals over the next few days. Later on after some time this tiny wound contracts as it heals making the resulting round scar smaller and less noticeable. The FUE patient typically ends up with hundreds of small round white scars, which are normally not detectable to the naked eye once the patient's hair grows out.
To puncture the sites the surgeon uses a fine needle for implanting the grafts, creating micro-holes (incisions) with predetermined density and pattern, and angling them in an even style to promote a rational hair pattern. This is then followed by the final phase when the surgeon inserts the grafts in the prepared incisions.
A skilled and experienced doctor can transplant 1000 to 1200 follicular unit grafts in a day. The cost per graft of FUE is also typically twice the cost of the standard follicular unit hair transplant procedure in which a strip of donor tissue is removed from the back of the head and trimmed under magnification into individual follicular unit grafts.
