FUE method of Hair transplant
Follicular unit excision (FUE) is a method of extracting or "harvesting" donor hair as part of a follicular unit hair transplant procedure. FUE hair transplant surgery uses an instrument to make a small circular incision in the skin around the follicular unit, separating it from the surrounding tissue. The device is then removed (pulled) directly from the scalp, leaving a small open hole.
This process is repeated until the hair transplant surgeon has collected enough follicular units for the planned hair restoration. This process can take one or more hours, and for large sessions it can take two days in a row. Donor wounds, approximately 1 mm in size, heal completely within seven to ten days, leaving tiny white scars in the hair at the back and sides of the scalp.
This method of harvesting donor units, one at a time removing follicular units directly from the scalp, is what distinguishes FUE hair transplantation from traditional follicular unit transplantation (FUT), in which donor hair is removed from the scalp in one thin, long layer. strip, and then dissect it into separate follicular units using a stereomicroscope.
Before grafts are harvested, tiny “recipient sites” are created in the area of scalp baldness using a thin needle instrument. The follicular units are then placed in the recipient sites where they grow into healthy hair follicles. The creation of recipient sites and the placement of follicular unit grafts are essentially the same in FUE and FUT procedures. The difference lies in the appearance of the donor area, as well as the quality and quantity of grafts obtained with each technique.
Steps of the FUE method
1. Preparing for Hair Transplant
At the beginning of the hair transplant operation, the hair follicles from the back of the head are removed and moved to the bald areas.
2. Trimming of the donor area
Before starting the operation, the hair in the donor area is trimmed.
3. Donor area prepared for surgery
After cutting the hair, the donor area is given local anesthesia.
4. Tissue in the donor area is removed and the donor area is sutured.
The tissue in the donor area, which contains baldness-resistant hair follicles, is then surgically removed and the donor area is sutured.
5. Combed hair on the sutured donor site.
The sutures in the donor area are hidden from the patient's hair placed on them. These sutures are removed almost ten days after the hair transplant operation.
6. Donor tissue is converted into follicular unit grafts.
Surgeons then use microscopes to view the donor tissue for preparation and preparation of follicular unit hair grafts.
7. Bald recipient area prepared
After local anesthesia is administered to the patient, the bald recipient area is prepared for the surgical process. Trimming / hair removal in the upper part of the recipient area is not required.
8. Incisions in the area of baldness.
Follicular unit grafts are placed in tiny incisions that are irregularly shaped in the recipient area.
9. Grafts are placed according to their density.
The smallest grafts (one and two) are placed in front of the hairline, and three and four (harder than one and two) are placed behind.
10. Immediately after the hair transplant operation.
After the hair transplant operation, tiny incisions with short hair will be visible on the operated area of the patient.
11. Closing the hair transplant operation.
Incision marks heal naturally and redness in the recipient area subsides within a week.
Need to know facts about hair transplant:
1) Transplanted hair behaves like natural hair and sheds within two to four weeks after transplantation. After that, the hair roots begin to sprout naturally and continue to grow for life.
2) The use of local anesthesia makes this procedure painless and the patient can go home the same day.
3) Hair transplantation is different from non-surgical hair restoration, in which a pre-selected base is fixed on the scalp with dexterity.
4) Hair transplant does not mean you will have a luxurious hair crop as the result varies from person to person and also has some connection with the person's natural hair quality.
5) Not every case of baldness solves the problem of hair transplantation. This is entirely case specific.
Hair implants cost
However, as with any medical procedure, how much you pay for hair transplant surgery depends on numerous factors, including: the local market (or where you live and where you have your surgery performed), whether you opt for FUT or FUE, whether you have to travel for your surgery, the surgeon you choose and the complexity of your case.
