Hair Transplant surgery has advanced a lot over the last two decades. Gone are the days when pluggy grafts used to serve as a deterrent for hair transplant seekers. Hair Transplant Dubai Clinic has invested in the state of the art equipment and has hired services of some of the world’s best cosmetic plastic surgeons to offer its esteemed clients finest hair transplantation. FUE hair transplant is among the latest graft harvesting techniques that our surgeons use to help the patients avoid that telltale, liner scar resulting from traditional Strip Removal Method, aka Follicular Unit Transplant.
Introduction of FUE has clearly changed the dimensions of surgical hair loss treatment. It has made hair transplantation a minimally invasive procedure that does not involve cutting and stitching of the scalp. Instead, the surgeon harvests only selected grafts using a small punch tool. Each graft is extracted individually and this makes it a time-taking, tiresome procedure, but the end result is worth it.
Benefits of FUE Hair Transplant
Here are few benefits of FUE Hair Transplant that make it a preferred choice of many around the world.
Only Healthy Hair Follicles Are Harvested
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) gives the surgeon full control over graft harvesting, and thus allows him/her to extract only the best quality hair follicles. This control over selection of grafts becomes more important in case of facial hair transplants, especially eyebrow and eyelash transplantation, where a doctor the follicular units containing only one or two hairs. Strip method transplant does not hold such quality.
FUE is a procedure for the patients who are bothered the most by scarring. If you don’t want to wear the linear scar as a badge on your scalp, you can always opt for the Follicular Unit Extraction method. FUE transplantation also results in scars but they are tiny, pinhole scars that can be easily camouflaged with even a buzz cut.
Minimal Bleeding and No Stitches
The most significant feature of this modern hair transplantation technique is that it has made the surgery minimally invasive, with minimal bleeding and no sutures. FUT involves cutting a linear strip of skin from the scalp and then stitching the scalp back to close the resulting wound. But in case of FUE the surgeon extracts each follicle individually using the punch tool, and the resulting incisions are so small that they don’t need any stitching for their healing.
Since FUE does not involve much intervention on scalp tissues, recovery from the surgery is quick and usually uneventful, given you follow the post-op instructions of your surgeon carefully. Most of the FUE patients resume routine activities on the third day of the surgery, contrary to FUT, which requires a downtime of 5 to 7 days.
Temporary Side Effects
Follicular Unit Extraction has some minor side effects but they are all temporary and do not need any special care or treatment. Most of these side effects disappear within a week following the surgery. Some common side effects include pain, swelling and itchiness of scalp. Follow your surgeon’s post-op instructions carefully to avoid infection, as infections can be risky.
