Follicular Unit Extreaction (FUE)

MAVI TOURS - Medical Tourism

Follicular Unit Extreaction (“FUE”) is a modern hair transplant technique that involves the extraction of individual hair follicles directly from the donor area on the scalp, typically the back and sides of the head.

Individual Follicles: FUE involves the extraction of individual follicular units from the donar area. These units contain one to four hair follicles along with their associated glands, nerves, and blood vessels.

Donor Area: The donor area is the region of the scalp where the hair follicles are harvested. This area is usually the back and sides of the head, which are less prone to hair loss.

Extraction Process: FUE is performed using a small, specialized punch tool (typically 0.8 to 1.0 mm in diameter) that makes tiny circular incisions around individual follicular units. These units are then carefully extracted one by one. The process is meticulous and requires precision to avoid damage to the follicles.

Incision and Healing: The tiny incisions made result in small, dot-like scars scattered across the donor area. The healing process is generally faster, and patients generally experience no or very little discomfort.

Transplantation: After extraction, the individual follicular units are prepared for transplantation. Small incisions are made in the recipient area (the bald or thinning area where the hair will be implanted), and the extracted follicles are carefully placed in these incisions.

Recovery and Results: While initial results may be visible within 2 to 3  months, but the grown hair will fell down and regrow again permanently,  the full results usually become apparent around 12 to 18 months after the procedure as the transplanted hair follicles go through their natural growth cycle providing a natural and aesthetically pleasing outcome.
