The person becomes sensitive and conscious of his/her appearance. Are you upset about your hair fall problem? Are all the home remedies, medicines and oils failing for you? If so, then Follicular Unit Excision ( FUE ) is your miracle cure. FUE hair transplant is especially a boon for people who have lost all hope of getting their hair back.
FUE hair transplant is the latest innovative technology in hair restoration and hair transplant treatments which have proven to give positive risk-free results. The technology helps in achieving extremely natural-looking permanent hair. Read ahead to know everything about FUE hair transplant procedure.
FUE involves extracting hair follicles from one part of the head ( donor area) to the balding patch. The donor area is the part of the head where hair growth is healthy. The back of the head is usually taken as the donor area since hair growth is most abundant over there. The donor area is shaved and the trichologist uses a microneedle to make circular incisions to extract the follicles. The patient is given anesthesia, effects of which wear out immediately after the surgery. The follicles are then transplanted on the balding patch. The area is then sanitized using a disinfectant. After a few days, the transplanted hair shed off and are replaced by the new permanent hair.
The whole process can be done in a single long session or multiple small sessions. A single session takes 7 - 8 hours to complete depending on the number of grafts required. The recovery time takes an average of 1-2 weeks. The treatment results in strong and healthy hair.

Using a microneedle causes practically no scar marks. The incisions made using a microneedle are very small, barely visible to human eye, making it easy to conceal the scarring on the scalp.
Since the incisions made are done using a microneedle, the small circular wounds are much easier to heal than linear incisions. The procedure does not even require sutures or scalpel. Hence, the recovery time is much less than the FUT treatment.
The FUE hair transplant treatment is virtually painless since there are no sutures or usage of scalpel involved. A post-op pain relief medicine prescribed by the doctor will ensure you feel no pain at all.
A major advantage of the FUE hair restoration treatment is that the end results are very natural looking. Hence the process is ideal for not only the hair on the head but also for the hair on the eyebrows, beard, and moustache.
Since the transplanted hair is patients own hair, the risks of rejection and allergic reaction are eliminated. Also, the risks from chemical reaction are also avoided.
It is important to take extreme care of the donor area and the transplanted area both before and after the surgery. Here are a few guidelines to understand the procedure better:
Do not consume aspirin, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, or any multivitamins before your surgery.
