What is FUE Hair Transplant Procedure?
Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE is the removal of the hair roots from one section of the body and they are transplanted on the scarred area. It’s an innovative procedure being performed by highly trained hair transplantation specialists. In this procedure, the individual grafts are extracted individually from the donor location without leaving a linear mark as the strip treatment does.
FUE Hair Transplant Procedure
When getting ready for follicular unit extraction, sections of the donor area should be shaved to a couple of millimeters. This helps with the hair graft harvesting procedure.
Under extremely high-powered magnification, individual hair follicles are isolated and also removed by making use of 0.75 to 1.00 mm punches to cut around the follicle unit. The punch allows the medical professional to carefully gather sensible grafts, allowing them to be separated from the surrounding cells without severing the underlying unit.
The follicular unit grafts will then be put right into the receptor area with the use of little lacerations. Your doctor will utilize our custom cut-to-size mini blades to create the sites. These blades vary from.7 mm to 1.3 mm in width and are developed for each patient, based on details individual criteria. The dimension of the client’s grafts, the qualities of the recipient skin, as well as the thickness at which the grafts will be put all establish the modification of the receptor blades.
The grafts are thoroughly positioned using really great forceps.

Our Opinion about FUE
At HTL, we believe that the FUE procedure is the best option available out of the 3 so we highly recommend it to our clients. FUT is very outdated and doesn’t give the best results. DHI is an advanced form of FUE so in order to achieve our aim of affordability and accessibility, we recommend FUE.
