Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is the most scientific & advanced technique of hair restoration. In this procedure:
Hair follicles are extracted individually from the back side of the head, beard or other body parts with the help of special micropunches (size varying from 0.7mm – 1.3mm).
Implanted in the bald area of scalp, beard, moustache, eyebrows or chest.
These transplanted hair grow, you can get a hair cut and style them in whatever way you want.
ADVANTAGES OF FUE
• No linear visible scar
• No infection or reaction to sutures
• The patient can wear short hair
• Virtually painless
FOLLICULAR UNIT EXTRACTION TECHNIQUE (FUE)
The hair in the scalp are arranged in the form of groups called grafts. Each graft consists of 1-5 hair. These grafts are removed from the permanent zone of back and sides of the head. The hair in these grafts do not have a receptor in the area of the hair root and do not respond to the male hormone, testosterone. Also other sources of hair include: beard, chest, abdomen, legs. The surgeons at Siddharth Clinic are routinely using the other body parts for patients who require higher number of grafts.
These hair are then implanted in the recipient area. The surgeons at Siddharth Clinic take a lot of care to implant the right kind of grafts at the right place to give it a natural look.
The transplanted hair grow for 2-3 weeks , then the hair shafts fall off, theroots remaining in the scalp and the shafts start coming back after 2-3 months of surgery.The hair come back at a very slow pace and a great deal of patience is required during this period. About 40-50% hair come back after 6 months and 75% after 9 months and about 90% of transplanted hair come back after 1 year of surgery.
