What’s an FUE Hair Transplant?

In short, Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that involves removing hair follicles from one part of the body, known as the ‘donor site,’ and transplanting them to a bald or balding part of the body, known as the recipient site.’ The procedure is mostly used to treat male pattern baldness or even female. Patients who undergo hair transplantation regain their own hair permanently, as if they had never lost it. 

Individual hair follicles are extracted from your skin and implanted elsewhere on your body during follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplants. As a result, the hair in the new region will seem thicker.

FUE has grown in popularity over any other methods because the technique is less likely to result in a “hair plug” appearance, in which portions of skin or hair do not match the surrounding areas. It will also not leave a big scar, as FUT does. 

What Other Techniques are There for Hair Transplant?

DHI Hair Transplant

Direct Hair Implantation is shortened as DHI. DHI, like the FUE technique, is a relatively new hair transplantation technique. This procedure also requires implanting hair follicles one by one into the bald or thinning area of the head. Hair transplant doctors frequently use DHI unique pen-like equipment called CHOI Pens. 

The DHI implanter and the certified, trained specialists who utilize the tool manage the depth, direction, and angle. DHI offers a solution for people who do not want the hair in the implantation area to be totally shaved off because implantation is done at the same time. The donor area is trimmed in the DHI hair transplant technique, so there is no need to shave.

FUT Hair Transplant

In FUT surgery, a surgeon removes individual hair follicles by cutting a strip of skin from the back or side of your head. These follicles are then transplanted into the balding regions of your scalp. Male pattern baldness produces a receding hairline, which is best treated surgically. 

The strip’s width is usually between 1 and 1.5 cm (0.4 and 0.6 inches). After being removed from the strip, the individual follicles are re-inserted into your scalp

Hair transplant procedures might last anywhere from 4 to 8 hours. The majority of people are awake throughout surgery because local anesthesia is used to numb the scalp.
