What is the FUE technique? or “Extration”

The FUE technique is based on compensating hair-free areas that suffer from missing hair follicles; the surgery consists of moving hair follicles from hair-dense areas such as the back of the head to empty areas so that the hair grows in its new location, taking into account the natural hair’s direction and growth angle.The follicular unit extraction is an important hair transplantation technique that treats hair loss and baldness without any scalp wounds or scars, because it does not require surgical incisions in the head.
As stated earlier the FUE technique is amongst the best techniques used for solving hair loss and balding area as the FUE technique doesn’t damage the skull or scar tissue during the specific procedure.The process is not as manual as it used to be; it now, consists of using a conical micro-motor that extracts the follicles under local anesthesia effect, to implant them later in the bald areas. The hair follicles are transplanted one by one, what doesn’t leave any scar but only small dots that disappear under the hair .
The FUE technique brings about greater results in regards to hair density , specifically it helpful for the healing of inherited baldness or resulted baldness, also it heals those who suffer from alpeocia.FUE guarantees a natural hair look post surgery without any setbacks
The follicular unit extraction is an important hair transplantation technique that treats hair loss and baldness without any scalp wounds or scars, because it does not require surgical incisions in the head.The follicular unit extraction technique gives better results in terms of hair density due to the fact that it can treat genetic baldness; baldness caused by health or hormonal problems and the baldness cases known as “alopecia”, and thus, it ensures natural hair appearance without any complications or side effects.

Steps for hair growth using FUE

There are a few steps that must be followed when using the technique by extraction

Preparation for the follicular unit extraction technique

The preparation for the follicular unit extraction technique takes about one hour, during which the hair should firstly be shaved in the donor area to 1 mm, then, an anesthetic painless device is used locally on the donor area to start extracting the follicles, the area would take a certain time to numb completely.
The doctor then determines the implantation areas and draws the front line design according to the patient’s desire.

The extraction

This stage takes around 3 hours. During which the hair follicles got extracted by a specific device that looks like a small robot with an integrated micro motor. The needle used in this device changes according to the person’s follicle diameter.
After the all follicles got extracted, they are put in a special preservation liquid.
The extraction with FUE technique is done in the same hair growth direction, what maintains the follicles and so reduces the damage which might affect them and thus, this increases the number of follicles taken from each square cm without affecting the donor area.
The most important thing that distinguishes this phase is that it does not leave any scars on the head scalp after the surgery so it fits both men and women, the follicular unit extraction is very important for women ,since It’s regarded as an easy painless plastic surgery with no side effects.
This operation can also be used to change the man’s beard and mustache design in addition to the possibility of extracting hair follicles from many parts of human body.

The implantation of hair follicles

This phase begins after opening the scalp channels for the extracted follicles, the implantation of hair follicles is made manually and with very high precision, what takes two to four hours
The follicles are distributed to cover the empty area of the hair in a strategically organized way according to the number of hairs within each follicle to achieve the highest density and coverage possible, as well as the natural appearance.
Up to 60 follicles can be implanted in each square cm what depends on the number of the extracted follicles.
The patient may not notice a change as soon as the FUE hair transplantation process finishes, especially as the follicles continue to grow inside the scalp the very first month, the difference can be noticed starting from the second month and all throughout the first 6 months, the patient will also notice that there is no side effect or complication.

Extraction

The extraction period of the grafts takes 3 hour to complete using a robot like device which extracts the hair roots individually, . The needle used in this device changes according to the person’s follicle diameter.

Hair loss or baldness in some areas often causes a loss of confidence or an uncomfortable feeling of unwanted appearance. To overcome this problem, permanent and guaranteed solutions such as FUE hair transplantation should be adopted.
The preparation for the follicular unit extraction technique takes about one hour, during which the hair should firstly be shaved in the donor area to 1 mm, then, an anesthetic painless device is used locally on the donor area to start extracting the follicles, the area would take a certain time to numb completely.
the doctor then determines the implantation areas and draws the front line design according to the patient’s desire.

Opening the channels

After a period of rest, and after preparing the extracted follicles, the doctor anesthetizes the implantation area and starts opening small channels in that part of the scalp, this process take around 1 to 3 hours.
The channels are so accurate that the implantation of follicles is made by a tongs; it would also follow the hair growth angle and direction so that the final result looks natural.

then the hair will start to grow 1 cm per month which is the normal growth rate of the natural hair..
The patient shouldn’t scare of hair loss or complications, since the extracted hair belongs to his own body and carries the same characteristics of the all the other hair in his scalp so there is no difference between the transplanted hair and the natural one.
