Follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant is the follicle grafting of a small number of follicles that are individually removed from the genetically strong areas of the scalp and restored at the thin areas. This is considered the permanent method of hair transplant because you cannot undo it. Surgeons use micro punches and extract single follicles. These single follicles are then grafted and no sign of extraction is left. The success rate of this method is approximately 95 to 100 percent. But this success rate mainly depends upon the experience and skill of the doctor performing the surgery, the method of hair transplant, and the physical condition of the patient. This procedure is preferred over FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) by those people who want to wear very short hair and this requires shaving the recipient site. This technique takes 2 to 4 hours generally and 8 to 10 hours in some cases for surgery. Three types of surgery are usually performed: 1. Androgen tic alopecia 2. Eyebrow transplant 3. Frontal hair line lowering. Hair starts growing in 3 to 4 months and the success rate is up to 80 percent.
During a hair transplant, several different techniques for harvesting hair follicles are used. A certain angle is required for transplanted hair so incision should be done at a specific angle only. Stripe harvesting, Follicle unit extraction, follicle unit transplant, and robotic hair restoration are different techniques used for harvesting. Among these techniques, FUE hair transplant has many advantages as it is very successful and it gives a natural appearance. It does not leave any visible scar on the head. This technique has great precision in the number of units to graft and density in the hair is not affected because as little hair as possible is removed. Follicles can be taken from any body part of the donor for example head, chest, or beard and it shows constant hair growth day by day. After surgery, care is very simple and easily applicable. You just need to be careful with stretching of hair and rubbing your scalp and sleep carefully for a few days after the surgery. The most important advantage of the technique is that it gives a very natural look and after the post-surgery treatment it is difficult to find out a difference.
FUE hair transplant procedure is very useful with minor side effects as tiny spots of extraction or sometimes it causes infection or tissue death. Temporary side effects as swelling and sensitivity can also be observed for short time. These side effects can be minimized by following some of the simple instructions of the surgeon. Do not take bath for three days, do not comb your hair for three weeks, do not wear hats or any other cloth on your head, and use unscented shampoo for few weeks after you start washing your hair. It is better to stay at home for a couple of days after surgery for rapid healing and some hair may fall during the healing procedure but the difference can be seen after 3 to 4 months of treatment. The cost of the FUE hair transplant procedure ranges from 70,000 to 450,000 in Pakistan. This range of cost depends upon the team of doctors, history of previous surgery, and the number of hairs to be transplanted. This technique can last for a lifetime when performed by a trained and experienced team because the genetics of restoration lies in follicles rather than the scalp.
