What Is FUE Hair Transplant, How Is It Operated?
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method which has been used since the 1930s is one of the most important and commonly used hairs transplant methods. Since this method isn’t a surgical intervention, patients who are planning to have a hair transplant operation can easily choose this technique.
How is FUE Hair Transplant Operated?
In FUE hair transplant, local anaesthesia is applied and the hair roots are collected one by one by using special edged micro motors and implanted to bald areas by considering the hair growth direction and angle. The hair roots are collected faster with these micromotors and the hair transplant is completed in a short time.
To express it more clearly, the hair is implanted into the bald area one by one by shaving the donor region to 1 mm in the FUE hair transplant method. The hair root collection and implant regions are numbed with a local anaesthetic. The micro motor end is brought closer to take the hair root in the middle and the motor is punched to the scalp in the hair growth direction. The hair root is cut in cylindrical format with the follicle and the microscopic tissue around it. The hair root is gently pulled with micro forceps and the follicular unit is separated from the base. The follicular units are collected like this and placed into small holes in the bald area. Each follicular unit has approximately 2 or 3 follicles.
What Are The Advantages of the FUE Method?
This automatic system that minimises the risk to damage the grafts during the operation shortens the operation duration and increases the number of collected grafts. When the procedure is operated in an experienced, correct and sufficient clinic that uses adequate technology and technique, the individuals can have new hair for life.
Why Should I Choose FUE Hair Transplant?
With this technique and technology, the hair transplant is operated easier and the required hair roots can be collected from more regions. The most important property is that the operation can be completed without a scar. Sutures and bistoury aren’t used. The pain is low and the treatment process is faster. With this fast recovery, individuals can adapt to their social lives fast.
If the procedure is operated by a professional and experienced team, the results will be permanent. Patients don’t experience pain, tissue or sensation loss after the operation. Since the hair roots are genetically durable against hair loss, patients will have permanent hair.
The hair transplant cost will decrease with the speed of the technologies and this will provide a financial relief for the patient.
