Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a minimally invasive method of donor harvesting. In FUE Hair Transplant, the follicular units are removed individually using an instrument that makes small circular incisions that heal by themselves. Hundreds, even thousands of these incisions are made depending on how many grafts are necessary to fill in the bald area.
FUE Hair Transplantion requires no blades or scalpels. In our center, we use a special surgical instrument that is designed for the FUE procedure. This instrument allows the doctor to create a circular incision around the hair graft, enabling the extraction of one follicular unit at a time. With FUE, hair restoration is as natural as with the strip procedure. The benefits of the FUE procedure include, very little bleeding, less visible scar formation and a less painful recovery period for patients. With FUE Hair Transplantion, there is no linear scar so patients have the freedom of having a buzzed or short haircut without feeling uncomfortable. Patients can also benefit from a more comfortable healing period and daily activities can be resumed in less time. It usually takes about five to seven days for the wound to heal completely compared to two weeks for the traditional strip hair transplantion.
