Follicular Unit Extraction is the most popular technique for hair transplant practiced today. The procedure is about relocating the hair follicles from one site of the scalp to the other site.
Previously, it was thought hair strands grow individually. But actually hair follicles grow in groups called follicular unit. A follicular unit contains one to four to hair follicles.
Each follicular unit besides containing hair follicles also contains the sebaceous glands, a tiny muscle, blood supply and nerves. All these are a band in a protein called collagen.
During extraction, follicles are logically harvested as follicular units in order to ensure graft survival and growth.
The rest of the procedure is the same, which requires transplantation of the extracted hair follicles. Tiny holes are created at the benefactor site and the hair follicles are inserted into them.
Donor area plays a key role in the results of the hair transplant.
This is the main reason why people choose the follicular unit extraction method over other hair transplant methods. Due to no scar, the donor area looks unaffected. Small circular scars that are formed during extraction are hidden by the surrounding hair.
It requires quick healing as compared to other procedures due to the usage of no sutures. The patient can resume daily activities in a couple of days. Complete recovery takes about seven to ten days after hair transplant in Dubai.
The results of the procedure are completely natural and hardly can be distinguished from the existing surrounding hair. FUE also provides the benefit of concealing the previous scars.
The procedure is completely safe and painless due to administering local anesthesia into the scalp. Also as the procedure is non-invasive there is hardly a possibility of any post infections.
This depends on the extent of hair loss, past issues from other surgeries, and the donor hair supply.
FUE is a more precise and minimal scarring procedure as compared to FUT.
Surgeons with more experience and skills cost more than inexperienced surgeons.
The goal is to achieve patient satisfaction and natural results.
