In this technique the hair follicle units (graft) are extracted with 0.8 mm-1mm size micropunches from donor area (back and side of head/other body part). Then these follicular units (graft) are implanted in bald area by making small holes.
This is a day-care (patient go home after procedure) procedure, done under local anesthesia (patient remain conscious during procedure) and whole procedure takes 6-8hrs. Patient can resume their work very next day.
Follicles are extracted from permanent zone (androgen resistant area) so transplanted hair usually don’t fall in future. And by an expert hair transplant surgeon graft are placed in predetermine pattern, angle and density so gives natural looking results.
Currently FUE method of hair transplant is widely accepted technique and gives excellent natural results.
Now a day in our centre KOSMETIC CLINIQUE we do FUE hair transplant under microscope or by robotic method and taking body hairs also. So large number of grafts are harvest in single sitting to cover advance grade of baldness.
1. In FUE no skin strip is harvested so no linear scar and scar related problems like hypertrophy /keloid, infection, sensory loss.
2. Only tiny holes that heal quickly, so very less post operative pain. Can join their job very next day.
3. Graft can be harvested from other body areas. So no limitations of donor area.
