FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is the method for extracting or harvesting donor hair. This method is very popular as a hair transplant procedure. A special instrument is used to make small, circular incisions in the skin around a follicular (hair) unit, separating it from the surrounding tissue.
The unit is then extracted straight from the scalp, leaving a small open hole. The surgeon makes tiny recipient site in the balding area of the scalp using a special designed needle point instrument. The grafts are then placed into the recipient sites. There they will grow into healthy hair-producing follicles. It is essentially that the recipient sites are made before the grafts are extracted so the placing of follicular units grafts are safe.
FUE hair transplants typically offer the best results if you:
- Wish to keep your hair very short. An FUE hair transplant does not leave a linear scar.
- Healed poorly after past procedures and wish to hide scars or achieve better results.
- Have a very tight scalp, which may make you a poor candidate for FUT.
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Procedure
To avoid the pain for the patient the field where the roots will be taken as well as field cultivation that will be realized will be anesthetized locally. Made through a special needle this process doesn’t give pain and numbness occurs in 3-5 minutes. During the operation the pain is imperceptible and often painkillers are not necessary after the operation.
For the process through the motor fue the drugged area must be inflated with a special liquid. Through this surface-enhanced liquid the roots are more comfortably liberalized as well as more root is provided.
Discharging The Patient
There is no need for the patients to stay in the hospital. Tissue taken area is covered with a special liquid silicone. Bandage is unnecessary. Thus, the contact with the outer region is disabled aesthetically. With a special designed hat, planting area and area where the roots were taken are covered till the patient reaches home.
