Various factors like genetics, diet, medications, and hormonal imbalance are responsible for causing baldness or hair loss. People apply different products to overcome hair loss. Hair transplant is an effective and promising procedure that helps many people to regain healthy hair by curing baldness successfully. In this procedure, a plastic surgeon transplants hair from the scalp's donor part to the balding areas. At Inform Clinics, various hair transplant surgery techniques such as FUE, FUT, and Robotic Hair Transplant are performed by the expert hair transplant surgeon.

What is FUE Hair Transplantation?

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplantation is an advanced technique for hair restoration. It is performed with a variety of modern instruments that help in providing more successful outcomes. It is a minimally invasive procedure in which grafts are removed from the donor area (the genetically stronger areas of the scalp) and transferred into the balding area. This treatment leaves no scars and has a shorter recovery time as compared to FUT.

At Inform Clinics, an experienced surgeon offers the best FUE hair transplant treatment in Hyderabad. The treatment provides natural-looking results, and there is no linear scattering or stitches involved in the treatment.

Benefits of FUE Hair Transplantation

  • Fast recovery

  • No stitches

  • Permanent results

  • Early recovery time

  • Natural hair growth

  • Less downtime

  • Minimal pain

  • Less risk of complications

  • There is no linear scarring or virtually invisible scars

  • Treatment gives the best coverage for hair loss

  • In a single sitting, the surgeon can extract more than 1,000 grafts.

Procedure FUE Hair Transplantation

Local anesthesia is administered to the patient, so it is a pain-free procedure. First, the donor area is decided, which is usually the back of the head. Then the area is cleaned with a disinfectant, and the donor area is prepared. The surgeon uses a cylindrical tool to make small units around the donor area's follicles to isolate graft. The graft is then extracted from the scalp area. Proper care is taken so that the grafts remain in the appropriate condition, and they are placed under a high-powered stereomicroscope and prepared for the placement. Then a follicular unit graft group is formed, and in each group, about 1-4 grafts are present. A small incision is made on the recipient site. At the final stage of transplantation, the extracted hair follicles are transplanted at an angle of 40 to 45° with precision. This helps to ensure that the accurate placement of the follicles is performed. After the treatment, bandages will be applied to cover the scalp for a few days.

Note

The growth factor treatment is often provided after the hair transplant procedure to enhance the results. This also helps to speed up the healing process on the operation site.

Normally, the transplanted hair will fall, and after a few days, new hair growth will take place.

Ideal candidate for FUE Hair Transplantation

  • Some people suffer from hair loss at a very young age and wish to get this hair transplant surgery done as soon as possible. People who experience hair loss in the early twenties can opt for this procedure, but they need proper care and treatment for their hair to counteract their baldness in future or later life

  • The severity of hair loss and the amount of hair available for hair transplantation, also decide whether a person is a good candidate for hair transplantation or not

  • Suffering from Male and Female pattern baldness

  • Lost some part of the hair due to burn or scalp injuries

  • Must be in a good state of health.
