FUE Hair Transplant
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a method of extracting or “harvesting,” donor hair in a follicular unit hair transplant procedure. In FUE hair transplant surgery, an instrument is used to make a small, circular incision in the skin around a follicular unit, separating it from the surrounding tissue. The group is then extracted (pulled) directly from the scalp, leaving a tiny open hole.
This process is repeated until the hair transplant surgeon has harvested enough follicular units for the planned hair restoration. This process can take two to three hours regularly. The donor wounds, approximately 0.8 to 0.9mm in size, completely heal over the course of four to five days.
This method of donor harvesting, removing follicular units one-by-one directly from the scalp, is what differentiates the FUE hair transplant from a traditional Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT), where the donor’s hair is removed from the scalp in one long strip and then subsequently dissected into individual follicular units.
Before the grafts are harvested, tiny “recipient sites” are made in the balding area of the scalp using a fine needlepoint instrument. The follicular units are then placed into the recipient sites where they will grow into healthy hair-producing follicles.
The creation of recipient sites and the placing of follicular unit grafts are essentially the same in both FUE and FUT procedures. The difference lies in the appearance of the donor area and in the quality and quantity of grafts obtained with each technique.
FUE Hair Transplant Procedure
Upon arriving at the clinic there will be a pre-operative consultation with the surgeon where the plan for the procedure will be explained and discussed. Once settled in the operating room the procedure can begin.Hair is shortened to 1mm long and surgeon will plan and sketch the perfect Donor area for Extraction or Harvesting.
The local anaesthetic is first injected into the donor area of the scalp. These injections can cause a slight stinging but this is short lived and the area goes numb very quickly. Most patients relax enough to sleep during the treatment.
Once numb, the surgeon extracts the grafts using a range of very small motorised punches (0.7mm-0.9mm diameter). This method of selecting individual follicular units allows the surgeon to follow a pattern which leaves the donor area with good density following the procedure.
As soon as each individual follicular unit/graft is extracted, a team of highly trained hair transplantation technicians prepares the grafts for implantation using state of the art microscopes.
FUE Hair Implantation
During the second stage of the process the balding/recipient area is anaesthetised and numerous micro-incisions are made using a specially shaped micro-needle. The grafts are then implanted inside the recipient sites by hand using instruments. This ensures minimal damage to the follicle to ensure maximum yield. The FUE surgeon carefully models the newly designed hairline with the existing shape and angle of hairs and face shape.
