Grafts extraction “FUE” This technique revolutionized plastic surgery in general and hair transplantation in particular.
The human instinct is that he loves to go out to meet people in all his elegance, and an attractive external appearance is not complete without the presence of thick hair, especially for men, some people have baldness in a certain area of the head, or hair that is not thick due to hair loss, it may create an embarrassment for them and maybe reflected in psychological damage, And they are looking for the best medical methods to get thick hair. Here, hair transplantation technology comes to be the best solution.
When harvesting the hair in the extraction of units, the surgeon extracts each follicles unit separately using a fine punch that varies in diameter From 0.7 mm to 1.1 mm. Also, there are many types of holes and methods that can be used (manual holes, mechanical holes, etc.), All of which are capable of providing good culture results if carried out by experts. A significant difference in outcomes is determined by the surgeon’s ability and experience.
Older techniques, like FUT, involve surgically removing part of the scalp from the donation area and then separating the follicles units outside the body using a microscope, Leaving a large longitud follicles scar. However, the extraction of individual graft units as in the FUE technique involves no cutting of the scalp and no longitudinal scar. Each graft unit can be extracted separately. Each may contain one, two, three, or four hairs grouped in each unit.
As for the scars in the donor area, FUE leaves many (hundreds or even thousands) tiny scars that are less than one millimeter in diameter. When the procedure is performed efficiently, only minuscule white dots may appear when the hair is completely shaved. Achieving a natural appearance depends on many factors – such as the front hairline pattern and direction/angle.
In fact, just like the hair that is extracted individually in the FUE technique, it is individually transplanted, giving a natural look. It usually takes longer to extract individual follicles. Therefore, The donor area recovers very quickly with this procedure, all the cuts heal within two or three days, and stitches are not needed. Hair begins to grow within 3 to 4 months after surgery at a monthly growth rate of 1 cm.
