Follicular unit extraction – FUE Hair Transplant Delhi, India is a relatively popular procedure for hair transplant in Delhi, India. This technique involves individual extraction of follicular units or grafts rather than the entire strip. This is useful in patients who keep short hair and do not want the scar to be visible in the head.
The process involves individual extraction of hair grafts from the donor area using very fine instruments and punches. This technique does not leave a linear scar in the donor area, only small dots at the back. The disadvantage is the requirement for shaving the entire head for this procedure
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is increasingly becoming more popular with patients and treating doctors alike for management of hair loss. Some of the reasons for this are:
1.Absence of cut and stitches at the back
2. The doctor need not be a plastic surgeon, even lesser trained doctors like dermatologists, MBBS doctors, dentists and even untrained technicians can learn how to do this and in fact a vast majority of such treatments are being done by technicians who are being hired by untrained doctors.
3. Perceived improved healing and lesser pain in recovery.
However its gaining ground in terms of number of cases vs. FUT does not indicate that it is a better technique. There are many intricate details that need to be understood to understand the process of hair transplant and as a patient, decide on the technique and the clinic.
