Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Overview

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), as opposed to the FUT procedure, is a hair transplant method in which the doctor extracts the follicular units of hair, from the donor area of your head, one by one.

The doctor uses a small microneedle, which punches a tiny incision around a hair follicle before extraction.

Each unit contains one to four hairs. These one to four hair groupings (called follicular unit grafts) are then transplanted into the balding areas of your head. In this method thus, there is no need for the surgeon to make a long incision in the donor area, as in the FUT procedure.

This is an ideal method of surgery for patients who like to wear their hair short. This method is also recommended for patients who have a tight scalp or have previously undergone the ‘strip’ or FUT method but with little or no success.

What happens during the FUE procedure?

The follicular unit extraction method involves the following procedure:

  1. At the outset, the doctor anesthetizes the scalp.
  2. Using a small microneedle, the doctor makes a circular incision, less than 1 mm in diameter, around a follicular unit on your head, to isolate a graft.
  3. Then, using a tweezer-like instrument, the doctor extracts the follicular unit from your donor area. Multiple follicular units are extracted this way.
  4. Before the process of harvesting the follicular units, tiny holes are drilled on your scalp, where hair loss has occurred.
  5. The follicular units are then placed in these holes, from where they gradually start yielding hair.
  6. A disinfectant is gently applied to your head after the procedure.

At the end of the procedure, the doctor will ask you to wear a bandana or a cap to protect your head for a few days.
