FUE Hair Transplants Leave No Linear Scarring…
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplantation is a surgical Hair Transplants technique that involves the extraction of individual hair follicles from the scalp (or body), with either a manual or automated system.
Unlike Follicular Unit Grafting (FUG), Follicular Unit Extration (FUE) does not require removal of a strip of donor skin from the scalp, and so there is no result linear scar.
During FUE Hair Transplants, a small round punch (0.8 – 1.2mm in diameter) is used to make a small circular incision around the individual hair follicle, which is subsequently removed as an intact individual follicle.
The hair follicles are then transplanted, one-by-one, into tiny incisions in the region of hair loss.
MEGA-SESSION FUE SURGERY
Large-sized surgery can be performed by FUE Hair Transplant for suitable candidates who wish to obtain maximum results with minimal down time and no linear scarring at the back of the scalp.
2000-2500 grafts can be extracted and transplanted in a single day and some of our patients opt for 2 consecutive days to obtain a whopping 5000 grafts in minimal time.
During FUG strip surgery, the donor area can be disguised by growing the hair long to cover the incision. However, note that FUE Hair Transplants surgery does require a larger, closer shave of the head to expose the maximal area for selection of grafts by the surgeon. Typically the donor area has regrown within a few weeks, but most patients are unconcerned by a temporarily short hairstyle during recovery.
Precision Surgical Skills
|Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant Surgery is labour-intensive and takes substantially longer than FUG surgery because the individual hair follicles are extracted and transplanted one-by-one.The surgeon must have fine precision surgical skills, good eyesight and excellent concentration to perform this intricate procedure. These are important factors to consider when choosing your surgeon.
