What is FUE and how is it Done?
Apr 24, 2017

      FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is the latest method of hair restoration in which hair roots are extracted or ‘harvested’ individually. In Electric FUE Hair Transplant Technique, the method of extraction is different from FUT but the method of hair implantation is the same as that of FUT. FUE is a ‘stitch less’ method of hair restoration in which hair follicles are extracted from the donor area under local anaesthesia with the help of special micro-punches. As the donor areas are very tiny, the donor area does not require placement of stitches as in FUT. The entire donor area on the back of the head is trimmed to 1–2 mm length a day prior to surgery.



       The patient lies in the face-down position on the operating table. Local anaesthesia diluted with saline is given slowly over the entire donor area. In an FUE hair transplant procedure, a small FUE punch (micro punch) of 0.8 or 1 mm size, mounted on a motor is used to make a small, circular incision in the skin around a follicular unit, separating it from the surrounding tissue. The hair unit is then extracted (pulled) directly from the scalp under 2.5 – 5× magnification, leaving a small open hole. This process is repeated until the Plastic surgeon has harvested enough follicular units for the planned hair restoration. This process can take 2-3 hours and, in large sessions, may be accomplished over two consecutive days.
