Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is one of the most used hair transplant procedures around the globe. Most hair transplant candidates in Dubai to prefer it over other methods. This method came to the fore about a decade ago and changed the whole hair transplant scene. It is highly effective. So what makes this particular option so good? Let’s dig a little deeper into this matter to find out.
The Extraction Method
The extraction method is minimally invasive and uses a punch like a mechanism in order to take out individual follicles. This reduces the time needed to transplant them since they do not need to be dissected like in strip method transplant. The follicles extracted has a size of around 1mm which is ideal for building hair volume.
The Number of Grafts Per Session
In comparison with other methods, the number of grafts that can be extracted and transplanted in a single session is a lot higher. This helps a person avoid future surgeries that may have been needed in other, more traditional hair transplant options.
The recovery period after an FUE procedure is from ten to fourteen days. There is very little discomfort as a result and chances of infection are a lot less when compared with the strip method transplant. The movements are less restricted as well.
The common perception is that FUE leaves no scarring but this notion is incorrect. There is very little scarring in the donor region in form of pinhole scars. These can be easily covered with normal hair and are not easily visible in any case. There is no linear scar as in the case of the strip method.
The cost of an FUE transplant is slightly higher than the strip method but lower than the new, more modern variations of the FUE on offer. The results justify the cost and it should not stop a person from opting from this method.
The results are quite amazing. Around 90% of success is had in the Follicular Unit Extraction. The hair grows out in about one year’s time. The appearance generally is very natural though the planning and execution by the surgeon is also very important in this regard.
