Follicular Unit Extraction: The Good, the Bad & the Ugly

Follicular Unit Extraction: The Good, the Bad & the Ugly

I guess you have finally come to the final decision that hair transplant is the best solution for your thinning hair or the bald patch that has driven you crazy for a decade. Trust me, you are not alone ever since you began your struggles with hair loss.

I guess you have also heard that FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is the best hair transplant technique for every hair loss patient or at least better that FUT procedure. Perhaps YES, depending on your hair loss extent.

The GOOD

With the FUE hair transplant technique, your hair surgeon will extract individual hair follicles from the donor region of the scalp with minor tissue to prolong its shelf life until they are finally implanted into the tiny incisions made in the recipient region (bald or thinning area).

Trust me the procedure requires no trichophytic closure, with the fact that no strip is removed from the donor region, but you will only witness tiny scars in the form of dots that are not at all visible when an expert is approached.

The procedure is 100% suitable for men and women.

  • Possible donor regions

The procedure avails multiple solutions that can be decided upon during the consultation session. The surgeon will have to evaluate whether your procedure will facilitate body hair transplant in case more hair grafts are required. The FUE Hair Transplant in Jalandhar will have to be performed as per the evaluation made before the procedure begins in order to avoid over grafting.

  • The robotic FUE procedure

It is mainly the result of technological advancement that a robot can perform the FUE procedure under the surveillance of an experienced surgeon. The procedure is extremely expensive but eliminates any possible mistakes that would have been made by the surgeon.

  • Natural Results

An FUE procedure once performed by an expert will deliver 100% natural results regardless of the extent of hair loss. The procedure doesn’t multiply the density of the hair, but proper implantation with the required number of hair grafts will result in a properly formed hairline and a good density.

The BAD

The Follicular Unit Extraction may require an extensive survey to reach the suitable hair transplant surgeon. In some clinics, mere technicians are hired to perform the procedure which extremely alters the expected results.

  • More time

The FUE procedure may be performed in a number of settings in case more hair grafts are required. The FUE hair transplant in India approximately takes 4 to 7 hours for a single procedure and this highly depends on the extent of hair loss.

  • Over grafting

In case the donor region of the scalp is overharvested, it will compromise with the natural results and the healing process. Over-harvesting normally results in Telogen Effluvium, a type of hair thinning where the hair fails to grow and attain the intended density.

  • A little Costly

Yes, slight hair loss will cost you RS.35, 000 for a single procedure and the cost will highly increase in case you have a large bald region.

The UGLY

  • Botched surgery

It is possible for a patient to suffer a botched surgery due to unforeseen circumstances or poor evaluation on the surgeon’s side. This may also affect the results of future FUE hair transplants.
