Follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplants in Islamabad Pakistan are done by extracting separate hair follicles from your scalp and implanting them on the bald areas. This will make the hair in the targeted area to look thicker.
The best suitable candidate for an FUE hair transplant is the one who has thin hair or balding but he still has enough hair in the surroundings to use for a transplant.
You will not be a good candidate for an FUE hair transplant if you are not having a sufficient amount of healthy or thick hair to transplant to the thinning or balding area.
It is important to note that the stiffness with which follicular units are detained underneath the skin varies between person to person and hence FUE hair transplant may not be suitable for all the patients. For that reason, before considering any patient for FUE hair transplant, the surgeon should establish whether the patient is a suitable candidate for FUE or not.
So in order to determine this surgeon advice the patients to go for a FOX test. In this test, the surgeon extracts a few normally up to 100 grafts from the donor area and then assesses how many complete or incomplete follicular units are extracted. If the extraction is easy and complete units are extracted, then the surgeon goes ahead with FUE hair transplant; if not he shifts onto the FUT technique.
Latest Techniques in FUE Hair Transplant:
In the field of FUE, there have been a number of improvements; the following is a brief portrayal of the same.
Follicular Isolation Technique (FIT):
‘Follicular Isolation Technique’ (FIT) is an FUE hair transplant technique that uses a punch with a ‘stop’ in order to limit the deepness of penetration. Even though the need for a depth stop in the extraction technique is still a combative issue, FIT is possibly a better term than FUE if the entire unit is not being captured.
Automated FUE Hair Transplantation:
The FUE Matic machine is an automated hair transplant machine that intends to support the doctor in carrying out a hair transplant using the FUE technique. It is claimed to provide a faster extraction rate of grafts in a limited time.
Robotics in hair transplantation:
Robots have a number of advantages and often enhance and extend human proficiencies. Robots can be optimized to perform tasks that demand a high amount of precision at a fast speed, automation, and tirelessness, consequently increasing productivity and efficiency. Their performance output is reliable and probable.
These technical fortes possibly will make them suitable for a number of hair transplantation tasks, such as FUE. Efforts are on the go to devise such robotics for hair transplantation and it is expected that they will be available for mass use in the near future.
Advantages of FUE:
From a Surgeon’s Perspective:
- It requires less manpower than FUT (One doctor with one or two assistants are enough)
- The procedure is less painful
- Graft preparation is marginal.
- Less equipment is required.
From the Patient’s Perspective:
- Can sport short hair
- The minimal post-operative recovery period
- Scars in the donor area are almost invisible
- No need to visit a surgeon for stitch removal
- Can use body hair for additional density with this technique only
- Can cover the previous scar of strip surgery with FUE
FUE is an exciting and state of the art development that has brought the field of hair transplant surgery one step closer to the exclusive minimally invasive status. The promise of an almost scarless surgery is appealing to both patient and the surgeon. The reasons for selecting FUE rather than a strip harvest may be the prevention of a linear scar.
