Follicular Unit Extraction is also known as FUE Hair Transplant in Pakistan which is a method of extracting the hairs of donor in the form of single follicular unit in the process of hair transplant. In Follicular Unit Extraction a special instrument is used to make a very small incision in the skin around the single hair this helps to separate the root of hair from its surrounding tissue, this single hair is known as Follicular unit which is then pulled out from the scalp leaving a tiny hole in skin.

The whole process of Follicular Unit Extraction is repeated until the surgeon gathers enough follicular units for the planned hair restoration in which these units will be transplanted. The time required in whole process of Follicular Unit Extraction varies from case to case in normal cases it’s a matter of hours and FUE can be completed in 2 or 3 hours.

But in some cases where the area of baldness is extensive surgeon may have to take more and more follicular units which may take a time of up to two or three days. The wounds in the extraction region normally heal in a period of seven to ten days, the signs of wounds remains hidden under your natural hairs at the sides or back of the scalp.

FUE is a quite different method of hair transplantation if compared to the traditional procedure known as FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) in which the hairs of donor is removed from the scalp in a form of one thin long strip from the back side of scalp. Then this strip is broken down in to individual follicular units with the help of a stereo microscope. Now the surgeon comes to the balding area and here he makes tiny ‘recipient sites’ on the scalp by using a fine needle-point instrument, the follicular units are then placed in to these ‘recipient sites’ where they grow in to healthy hairs.

This process of transplantation is normally same in both FUE and FUT techniques the major difference lies in the donor area and also in the quantity and quality of the grafts obtained.
