Follicular Unit Extraction – FUE Hair Transplant

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a revolutionary technique in the field of hair transplantation. Unlike previous methods, FUE involves extracting individual hair follicles from the donor area of the scalp (usually the back of the head where hair is more resistant to balding) and implanting them into the balding areas. This method has gained immense popularity due to its minimally invasive nature and the natural-looking results it offers.

The procedure starts with the numbing of the donor area, followed by the extraction of individual hair follicles using a precise microsurgical extraction instrument. Each follicle is carefully removed with its necessary tissues and sebaceous glands. This meticulous process ensures the vitality of the follicles, which is crucial for the success of the transplant.

Once the follicles are extracted, they are prepared for transplantation. In the recipient area, tiny incisions are made to place these follicles. This step requires the skill of an experienced surgeon to ensure that hair growth follows a natural pattern & direction, blending seamlessly with existing hair.

This technique was previously termed Follicular Unit Extraction and was published in 2002 by Dr. Bernstein and Dr. Rassman. This technique involves the extraction of individual follicular units (FU) or follicles from the donor area and implantation in the recipient area. It established the use of a small, circular punch which aided in the incision of the skin and separation of the surrounding tissue from the graft. This technique gained popularity in the next few years after facing initial criticism like any other.

In the year 2018, the term ‘extraction’ was replaced by ‘excision’ in an attempt to emphasize the minimally yet invasive nature of the procedure and avoid misleading patients. FUE is an advanced version of hair transplant though it is quite a simple one. It is done with the suction-like method in which individual grafts are removed from the scalp. There are no sutures required in FUE. However, it is slightly time-consuming. This surgical procedure is most suited for people with a lesser area of baldness and those who need less number of grafts.

Steps of FUE:

  1. Extraction of the required follicular units or follicles from the donor area and placement in a holding solution.
  2. Creating the slits on the recipient site
  3. Implantation of the grafts in the recipient area with the help of implanters or forceps.

Advantages of FUE:

  1. Minimally Invasive: FUE doesn’t require any stitches or staples in the donor area.
  2. Less Post-Operative Discomfort: Patients usually experience minimal discomfort post-surgery
  3. No Linear Scar: Unlike the strip method, FUE leaves no visible linear scar, making it ideal for patients who prefer short hairstyles.
  4. Quick Recovery: The recovery period is relatively shorter, with most people returning to normal activities within a few days – faster healing time.
  5. The technique of choice in decreased scalp laxity.

Transitioning to Direct Hair Transplant (DHT) at Eugenix Hair Sciences:

Developed and pioneered by Dr. Pradeep Sethi and Dr. Arika Bansal at Eugenix Hair Sciences, the Direct Hair Transplant (DHT) technique is an advanced version of the standard FUE. It is designed to enhance the effectiveness of the FUE procedure by reducing the out-of-body time of the hair follicles, thus improving their survival rate.

The DHT Technique:

The DHT technique, a brainchild of Dr. Sethi and Dr. Bansal, focuses on immediate implantation of the extracted hair follicles. In conventional FUE, the extracted follicles are first collected, counted, and then implanted. However, in DHT, as soon as the follicle is extracted, it is implanted directly into the recipient area. This reduction in time spent outside the body significantly improves the survival rate of the transplanted hair follicles, leading to better growth and denser hair.

Key Features of DHT at Eugenix

  1. Near-immediate Implantation: The immediate transfer of follicles from the donor to the recipient site minimises the risk of follicle damage and death.
  2. Enhanced Survival Rate: The quick implantation ensures a higher survival rate of the grafts, leading to denser and more natural-looking results.
  3. Reduced Handling of Grafts: Minimizing the handling of grafts preserves their vitality and increases the success rate of the transplant.
  4. Experienced Team: Under the leadership of Dr. Sethi and Dr. Bansal, the skilled team at Eugenix ensures precision and care in every step of the procedure.

With FUE being a major breakthrough and DHT being a revolutionary improvement, the field of Hair Transplants has never been more exciting. The DHT technique by Dr. Pradeep Sethi and Dr. Arika Bansal at Eugenix Hair Sciences remains the mainstay and the secret recipe for the outstanding results for distinguished clients, celebrities and cricketers coming is for a professional Hair Transplant procedure. Undoubtedly, DHT Offers a more efficient, effective, and patient-friendly approach to hair restoration. This technique, reflective of the continuous advancements in hair transplantation, promises a brighter future for individuals seeking solutions for hair loss.
