The FUE technique of follicular unit extraction is the least invasive techniques of best hair transplant in Delhi. This procedure leaves no linear scar in the donor area because it does not use scalpel or sutures. FUE consists in collecting the follicular units one by one in the donor zone using circular micro-punch of the diameter corresponding to the follicular units of the patient.
FUE - Follicular Unit Extraction procedure - the craze triggered by a transplant Scarring-free hair is very important because many men treated for male hair loss do not wish any traces of a hair transplant in Noida.
Why the FUE?
Today, the main benefit that patients see in FUE is the absence of a linear scar due to FUT in the donor area. But when the FUE hair transplant in Delhi was developed, the first motivation of the hair transplant surgeon in Delhi was not the absence of scar but beautiful and well enlargement of the sampling area.
The benefits of FUE: limiting the donor area and new sampling areas
Previously at the arrival of the FUE, the hair transplant doctor in Delhi faced the problem of patients who had already undergone one or more interventions and whose donor area by FUT had been exhausted. These patients no longer had a sufficient donor area to cover the needs of the receiving area. FUE widens the donor area by 30% and 50% compared to the FUT. By allowing the exploitation of the temporal zones and the high and low zones of the occipital region, the donor zone is found enlarged and thus increases the number of possible hair transplant in Moradabad.
The benefits of FUE hair transplant in Delhi: short cut and no linear scar
The scar of the strip test: Some patients do not want any traces of the procedure and in particular the scar after taking the strip. FUE leaves almost no trace visible to the naked eye. Patients can find their hair and the freedom to wear their hair as they wish.
The so-called FUE graft procedure meets these criteria: the absence of a recognizable linear scar, and the widening of the sampling area.
Today there are two distinct types of direct extractions, FUE and FIT (Follicular Isolation Transplantation), which are differentiated by the number of gestures in the follicle isolation stage but both are linear scar-free procedures. and allowing a large number of grafts.
The steps of the FUE procedure
5 operative steps punctuate the FUE graft procedure. Each step is equally important to each other and influences the outcome of the transplant.
Step 1: Mowing and preparation for the procedure
For FUE hair from the donor area is usually shorn. It is impossible to remove a follicle if the hair is more than 1mm.
However, a mowing "total" can sometimes be avoided depending on the case. This is called FUE "Patchy" or "Unshaven". Normal FUE requires total mowing. Mowing is done without a hoof. The ultra-short cut is still quickly forgotten because 15 days after the operation, the hair has already pushed back 0.5 cm
Step 2: isolate the hair follicles
The follicles are then selected directly on the scalp of the patient, the hair is isolated with a titanium punch with a diameter ranging from 0.7 to 1.0 mm. This step is one of the advantages of the FUE, we can then select each graft and therefore favour grafts of 1, 2, 3 hairs according to the needs of the recipient area. This is the so-called " Cherry Picking " stage - we select the best transplants!
To isolate the grafts, the punch drops 3 to 4 mm into the skin along the hair and follicle. This is the only step that requires the FUE punch. The grafts then isolated and dissociated from the epidermis and the dermis. But this one remains in the skin for the moment. They are not yet extracted.
The punch isolates the follicles on the scalp
Step 3: Extract the hair follicles "Cherry Picking"
Using micro-forceps, either a micro-forcep or a "mosquito" forceps, the selected follicles are extracted one by one. Each graft is then deposited in physiological saline and / or in a mixture of PRP and physiological saline. The grafts are then sorted and checked and prepared for implantation. The extraction procedure is then complete. One can begin the procedure of incisions and implantation which is the same in FUE or FUT.
Step 4: incisions in the recipient area
Using blades cut to the size of the follicular units, the practitioner draws the new hair using micro-incisions in the area to be grafted. The slides are cut and prepared for each patient. They are for single use.
It is at this stage that factors deciding the outcome of the hair transplant in South Delhi. These factors are:
- The angle of the hair
- the distribution
- The density
The incision stage determines the design of your hair transplant.
Step 5: Placement of the grafts in the incisions
With each graft of 1,2 and 3 hairs previously separated and sorted, they are now inserted into each incision. This step is often performed by several hands because up to 3 people can work at the same time and insert the grafts on the patient's scalp.
The grafts will now re-oxygenate and then reconnect to the patient's vasculature.
The FUE operation is finished. Then begins the waiting for the regrowth of the transplant. Patients benefit from their outcome 7 to 8 months later, but at least 12 months are needed for complete regrowth, and up to 15 to 18 months for thickening hair.
After the FUE transplant: the postoperative
After about ten days, the traces of extraction fade and the donor zone resumes its normal appearance after 15 to 20 days.
If the patient does not wish to mow the hair, then the procedure must be performed in FUE called "patchy" or "without shaving".
It usually takes 15 days for the rash on the receiving area to fade.
About 1 month to 2 months after the FUE operation, all implanted hair falls back. This is a normal process. 12 months will be required for complete regrowth. Treatments can be used to speed up the process.
The size of FUE punches
FUE punches have evolved a lot since the beginning of this procedure. At first, the first FUE grafters used punches used for biopsies. Quickly, the punches evolved to versions exclusively designed for FUE varying sizes and shapes. Today the punches are machined almost entirely in Titanium because of the biocompatible and allergenic property of this material.
Punch sizes vary mainly from 0.7 millimetres to 1 millimetre. The extremely small size of the punches helps to make the FUE almost invisible and without visible scars. Of course, the size of the FUE punches is not the only factor to participate in more or less visible traces left by the levy. The quality of the punch blade - more or less sharpened - and the genetic heritage of the patient are factors of the same importance as the size of the punch.
