Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a hair transplant procedure that involves the individual removal of follicular units from the donor area of the patient and then individually, finely and carefully transplanted to the recipient area.
FUE hair transplant is a minimally invasive procedure in which grafts are lifted with the help of an automatic extraction device and then carefully planted in the recipient region. What makes this technique more attractive is the fact that no linear scar is left and no stitches are required.
The method of taking out follicular units individually from the donor area is what make FUE unique and differentiates it from Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) that involves the removal of hair from the donor area in one thin and long strip after which it is divided into single and separate units with the help of a stereo-microscope.
FUE hair transplant has several benefits, some of which are listed below:
Even though FUE hair transplant features a cutting edge and minimally invasive technique, yet it is not for everyone. Only your dermatologist can best determine the type of hair transplant that would go with you; however, FUE still remains among the preferred and trendy ones.
The result of FUE hair transplant counts largely on the use and quality of tools involved in the procedure. We have commissioned state-of-the-art technologies for FUE at our dermatology clinic in Islamabad. This combined with the expertise of our staff and Dr. Shumaila’s experience make our clinic a hub for hair transplants.
