With the tremendous scientific development in the field of hair transplantation, new hair transplant techniques have developed which have made this surgery shorter and safer. One of the latest techniques is FUE technique. FUE hair transplantation includes the latest simple surgical intervention techniques and advanced vaccination techniques. This treatment is the most advanced of the previous methods of hair transplantation due to several reasons will be listing later.
What is FUE Technique?
Follicular unit extraction involves the transfer of follicles from the “permanent area” of the scalp where the hair is genetically programmed to sustain lifelong growth (“donor area”) to areas affected by hair loss. The difference is that instead of removing a bar from the donor skin through the anatomy of the Follicles Unit, FUE extracts the individual follicular unit directly from the scalp, leaving only small scars.
Phases of this procedure:
At the beginning of the procedure, the donor area is shaved and the follicular unit is extracted individually. The surgeon will make microscopic incisions in the recipient area of the patient’s scalp. Individual follicles will be placed in these recipient areas. In order to achieve a natural look, surgeons make the utmost care and attention to determine the position of the follicles. The follicles are arranged in groups depending on the number of hairs in each follicle, based on your hair loss pattern, we determine the optimal location for each follicle unit group in order to achieve the most natural results. The follicles are then strategically placed one after another, according to the number of hairs within each follicle, in order to maximize the nature, intensity and coverage of the hair areas. Small incisions left after the follicle units are extracted will be fully cured within a few days. After three months of procedure, you should notice new hair growth.
How long does it take to perform hair transplant via FUE technique?
The procedure lasts from 6 to 8 hours. Most of the people can return to their work after 2 to 5 days of the procedure. Within 2 to 3 weeks after the surgery, the transplanted hair will fall, but you will notice a new growth in a few months.
What are the key benefits of hair transplantation using FUE technique?
However the FUE method is a new method, it is the preferred choice for people affected by hair loss around the world. The majority of hair transplant specialists recommends it, because it is the permanent solution to hair loss problems.
The key benefits of hair transplantation with FUE technique include:
- No Linear Scars:
This is one of the main reasons why people choose FUE because it does not leave a visible linear scar because the donor area appears unaffected and unchangeable.
- Rapid Healing
Hair transplantation with FUE technique requires a shorter healing time than some other methods. With FUE, patients recover within days because this technique does not require the use of scalpel or sutures. As a result, there are few restrictions on strenuous physical activities after the first few days. Full recovery takes an average of 7-10 days.
- Go home immediately after treatment:
To ensure patient comfort, hair transplant surgeons use simple local anesthesia similar to that used in dentistry. Patients can go home immediately after treatment. If there is some discomfort, it can be reduced by mild analgesics. Moreover, the possibility of infection is very low.
- Natural Results:
The advanced FUE method gives perfectly natural results and the transplanted hair cannot be distinguish from the original hair. In FUE, hair follicles are implanted in a direction and angle that simulates the growth of the surrounding threads.
As a result, the implanted hair merges with the surrounding hair in natural ways.
Who can benefit from FUE?
FUE is widely used in the treatment of genetic baldness and produces the best results in patients with minimal to moderate hair loss. FUE is also the preferred method for women who seek corrective surgery and patients who need to implant eyebrows, eyelashes and mustaches, in addition to the secondary limited hair loss treatment for skin conditions. FUE is also recommended for patients whose scalp is very narrow, and when other areas than the scalp (beard, abdomen, and legs) serve as donor areas. FUE hair transplantation is a modern hair transplant technique. A highly experienced physician extracts hair follicles from the donor area (usually at the back of the neck) using a specialized extraction tool. Then the follicles are moved to the recipient area. Using a specialized surgical needle, the surgeon will pierce the area of the scalp that will receive the follicles. The follicles are then inserted at an angle in the recipient area, with a specific intensity, resembling the natural and realistic hair style.
Advantages of FUE Hair Transplant :
- Provides the best result in terms of hair density acquired and reduces the possibility of scars.
- This technique is particularly useful in cases of pattern baldness, which is technically known as androgen alopecia.
- Guaranteed natural hairline look
- No or lower risk of complications after hair transplant with FUE technique
- Rapid wounds healing
- Minimum fatigue after the procedure
- Invisible linear scars
What is the Follicular Unit?
These small packages can easily be observed. On average, there are about 1.8 to 2.3 hair per unit. Apart from peripheral hair follicles, each follicular unit contains 1-2 hairy hair (short, soft hair, barely covering most of the body and acts as a thermal insulator), fatty glands for lubrication, delicate muscle, nerves, and blood supply, all wrapped in a protein group called collagen. As a result of this structure, vesicle units can be viewed as distinct functional entities.
What is the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)?
It has long been thought that scalp hair grows in individual strands of hair, but lately it has been discovered that it actually grows in small groups called follicular units. Each follicular unit graft contains 1, 2, 3 and sometimes 4 hairs. The follicular unit extraction of the (FUE) and the resection of the strip (two sub-classes of the FUT implant method) is the most commonly used method of recovering surgical hair today. In essence, the implantation of the follicular unit involves the transfer of complete follicular units obtained from the patient’s donor area to areas affected by hair loss. In the follicular unit, the units (extracted) are harvested directly from the patient’s donor area, one after the other.
Where is the Donor Area?
The donor area is one of the main elements of hair restoration, as it supplies hair buds. It is located in the back of the head and its main properties are its resistance to baldness like dihydrotestosterone or DHT effects. Dihydrotestosterone is an androgen hormone, found in both sexes, which plays a key role in the development of baldness between males and females (genetic baldness). In this type of hair loss, healthy hair gradually shrinks in size and diameter (mini hair), due to hypersensitivity of hair follicles to the effects of this hormone. DHT affects the hair’s nutritional supply and causes gradual contraction in the follicles, resulting in impaired hair and eventually leading to permanent hair loss.
What is the Succes Rate of Hair Transplant via FUE Technique?
Considering what kind of cosmetic procedure to make can be very difficult, the Internet is full of information – some of it can be completely misleading, we guarantee to our customers all the information they need before visiting us in the clinic. There’s something we often ask about which is how successful hair transplant is, so today we will tell you exactly what to expect. Hair transplantation is the most successful way. FUE hair transplant lasts for life, and once you’ve finished hair transplant, you’ll notice that your hair will fall in a few weeks – this is a natural part of the procedure, and your hair will grow stronger and healthier. Your hair will begin to grow in transplanted areas and you will begin to see new hair after about 3-6 months of growth. Transplanted hair will continue to grow as it does in the donor area because it will retain the same properties as before the implant. With this in mind, the new transplanted hair will grow completely. During your personal consultation, our experts will ensure that you are a suitable candidate for a successful hair transplant.
