- No side-effects: This procedure does not have any side-effects on the person. Only small wounds occur because of the follicles transplant that easily fade away in 5-6 days.
- Painless: This procedure produces minimal pain to the person.
How does the procedure work?
Most of the times, only 1-4 hair are taken out in this procedure for hair transplantation in this method. In FUE method, individual follicular units are extracted from the patient’s scalp where the hair are still adequately present. This method stands different from the strip method as in strip method, the skin containing hair follicles is surgically removed from the patient’s scalp and later transplanted to the bald area. With advancement in technology, FUE method has transformed itself into Advanced FUE. Advanced FUE has increased the possibility of obtaining hair follicles. Now the experts can obtain hair follicles not only from the head but also from chest, legs, arms, abdomen, back, face, and beard.
After obtaining the follicles, those are stored for a while before the transplantation starts. Before the grafts are transplanted, tiny holes are created within the bald areas of the scalp using a fine pointed needle. The hair follicular units are then transplanted into the bald areas of the patient where they are bound to grow into healthy hair-producing follicles.
