Fue Hair Transplant
We provide Fue Hair Transplant for men and women at an affordable rate.
FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction. It is an extremely popular procedure for Hair Transplantation. In this technique, in a small round punch is used to remove follicular units from a patient’s bald resistant donor areas one at a time and then transplanted into a patient’s balding areas.
Follicular units are extracted from the donor site using a multiple step process. Firstly, a small sharp punch scores the skin around a graft (follicular unit). Secondly, a small dull punch usually ranging from 0.7mm to 1.0mm is used to go deeper into the soft tissue surrounding the follicular unit. Since the direction and angle of the follicular unit below the skin can’t be seen and can often differ from the direction of the hair on the surface, a sharp punch if used below the surface of the skin might transect or sever the underlying follicular unit. Whereas, the dull punch tends to envelope the follicular unit, while separating it from the surrounding soft tissues. This process is called as “blunt dissection”.
Once the basic follicular unit is separated from the surrounding tissues it can then be extracted, often by a forceps gripping the hair above the surface.
The small hole left behind after the follicle is extracted then heals over the next few days. This tiny wound contracts as it heals making the resulting round scar smaller and less noticeable. Each follicular unit graft is carefully placed into tiny recipient sites made by the plastic surgeon.
