What is FUE?
FUE Transplant Dubai is an advanced hair restoration technique that involves individual extraction of hair follicles from the scalp and other areas of the body. It provides better results as compared to other techniques because it is minimally invasive in nature. Very less scaring is involved, scars produced by the treatment are small and negligible. The procedure is a little slow because only one surgeon performs it but when it comes to the benefits of the treatment it is the best choice.
What Happens During the Surgery?
This type of surgery delivers natural-looking and permanent result. Generally in FUE, the sides and back of the scalp act as the donor sites. A specialized punch machine is used to make small round punches in them. The surgeon extracts healthy hair follicles from them and places the extracted follicles in the bald areas of the scalp. Local anesthesia is used so you will feel no pain or discomfort during it.
Follicular unit extraction is the preferred choice of most of the doctors and the patients because it provides uncountable benefits to the sufferers. Five common reasons because of which people are preferring it are listed below,
The minimally invasive nature of FUE is a huge benefit of the treatment. In FUT method, a strip is harvested from the back of the scalp and follicles are extracted from it. The biggest disadvantage of the treatment is that it leaves a long linear scar behind which will take 2 to 3 weeks to fully heal so the recovery period will be a little longer. On the other hand, FUE results in small and invisible scars that require only 3-4 days to heal. So in simple words, the treatment involves lesser downtime as compared to FUT. The patient is allowed to continue routine tasks as soon as the recovery period is completed.
The treatment is the best choice because it delivers wonderful and permanent results to the patients. The transplanted hair follicles of FUE last for a longer period than of FUT because in follicular unit transplantation extracted follicles are left outside for 3-4 hours by which their quality is affected. So, the results produced by FUE are much better than the results of FUT.
No Cutting or Stitching is involved:
