FUE Hair Transplant
FUE is a method of Hair Transplantation where the follicular units are extracted individually by means of an FUE machine from the back of the head and are implanted where they are required. There is no need to take the strip of scalp technique, hence there is no need for stitches. The recovery is hence much quicker, is less painful and leaves no linear scar at the back of the head.
The advantages of FUE over strip technique are:
- There is no linear scar at the back of the head(if you want to wear your hair short)
- Less painful
- Quicker recovery
- Can wear short hairstyles
- Useful in those people who have a tendency to scar or form keloids
- Useful for body hair and beard hair extraction in those who do not have good donor area
There are various causes of hair loss but the most common pattern is the male pattern alopecia. The most permanent solution to this type of hair loss is, of course, Hair Transplantation. Women are also concerned about scanty areas of hair growth and of large areas of parting showing through in pictures for which they seek help. Hair transplantation is broadly achieved by removing grafts/follicles from the back of the head. In this area, the growth of hair is more permanent and it is more resistant to hormonal changes. Follicles taken from here are then placed in areas of scanty growth or baldness. The removal of the grafts varies in FUE and FUT methods.
