At old age it’s natural to lose hair but, losing your hair cover at young age can be devastating and may be an indicator of under lying physiological weakness or some other invasive condition. In the late 90’s a technique was developed to re-grow hair and increase hair count using the patient’s own follicular unit. This technique was known as follicular unit extraction (FUE) or follicular transfer (FT).
In this technique, the patient’s hair bearing regions on the back and sides of the scalp are treated as resistant donor areas and the follicular units are extracted from this area one at a time using a powered FUE hand piece. These extracted follicular unit grafts (hair groupings of 1, 2, 3 or 4 hairs as they occur naturally in the scalp) are harvested one by one using a small punch usually ranging from 0.7 to 1 millimeter in size. Before extraction, the hairs are required to be trimmed off so that the surgeon is able to see the patients scalp while operating.
Then using the punch a superficial incision is made enveloping the hair follicular unit. envelope the follicular unit, while separating it from the surrounding soft tissues. Once the follicular unit is separated from its surrounding tissues it is then then extracted using Jeweler’s forceps by gripping the hair from above the surface. The small depression that is left behind in the donor region heals on its own over a span of a few days.. The extracted follicular unit may be transferred to the recipient site as soon as it is extracted or may be kept in a holding solution that contains growth factors, regeneration factors, Liposomal ATP etc , that help in keeping the extracted follicle units viable for a considerable amount of time.
