Hair Transplant

Our Results

FUE Hair Transplant Technique (Follicular Unit Extraction) FUE and Strip (FUT) comprise the 2 techniques of Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation and their only technical difference lies in the way of the harvesting hair roots from the back of the scalp.

More specifically: FUE hair transplant technique involves the one by one extraction of follicular units from the donor area, while in Strip follicular units are harvested through single strip harvesting and Digital video -microscopic dissection. Then, the follicular units΄s placement is identical for both the methods.

FUE is implemented through the extraction of follicular units from the back and sides of the scalp and their reimplantation to the area affected by hair loss.It can reproduce natural hair growth, as transplanted hair regrows in its natural occurring groups of 1-4 hairs.

FUE has eliminated the need for a linear incision and allows Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation through single & direct harvesting of the follicular units.

FUE process involves an electronic motorized circular incision (of 0.7mm-0.8mm diameter) around each follicular unit, the extraction of the follicular unit and its implantation to the balding area of the scalp. Very fine holes are left at the donor area which heals within 7 to 10 days. FUE method enables to harvest individual follicular units, while ensuring the minimum of peripheral damage.

WHY YOU CHOOSE US FOR FUE

Technique

The grafts are harvested with the help of Automated FUE machine which ensure least damage to the grafts under magnified view of surgical loupes.

We use very small punches for follicle extraction which is very essential for minimal scarring, pain and bleeding Megasession in which upto 4000 grafts for coverage of large area of baldness can be done in a single day. The extracted follicular units are again dissected under DIGITAL VIDEO MICROSCOPE to remove extra tissue which is non essential to give maximum survival rates and higher density.

Most of the grafts are separated in single follicular units as the graft separation is done under magnification

No punches/slits/big needle holes/drill are done during placement. We have special instruments for placements in which roots are not touched at all.

SOME BASIC INFORMATION ABOUT FUE

  • FUE can be done in both men & women with Male or Female Pattern Baldness (Androgenetic Alopecia).
  • FUE is less invasive than Strip, due to absence of linear incision and thus is associated with a smoother postoperative course (the donor area requires a shorter healing period and it is left to heal by second intention).
  • FUE is usually preferred by people who tend to keep their hair very short (less than 1cm long)
  • FUE is ideal for hairlines, temples, sides, eyebrows & scar repairs.
  • FUE is a time-consuming method and for the same number of follicular units it requires more sessions than Strip (thus, It is more expensive as price/follicular unit).
  • There are specific preconditions for being an FUE candidate (limited donor supply, limited scalp laxity – very tight scalp, skin that tends to heal with scarring etc).
  • FUE is usually preferred when a small number of grafts are needed. Larger balding or thinning areas can also be covered with FUE technique but the candidate should have a bigger than average donor density.
  • FUE is also preferred when someone has undergone several previous hair transplant surgeries and is no longer able to undergone one more Strip procedure.
  • Our centre is able to perform a combination of FUE and Strip method, which beyond all increases the number of the follicular units without increasing the size of the strip.

LENGTH OF THE FUE PROCEDURE

Due to the particular way of follicular units harvesting, the FUE procedure lasts many hours but time goes by pleasantly as you can listen music or have a conversation with the medical team or simply relax. During the procedure there are intervals and after the end of the procedure you return home.

THE RETURN TO USUAL ACTIVITIES

You can return to work from next day following the procedure and will resume your daily routine activities. The doctor informs personally each patient and provides particular instructions according to his profession and activities.

IMPROVEMENT IN FUE PROCEDURE

The FUE hair transplant procedure is implemented by Dr Dhananjay Chavan hair transplant team, which is comprised of specialized medical staff who are trained in hair transplant procedure. It is therefore a necessity both the harmonic collaboration and flawless coordination between the members of the medical team.

  • Painless procedure- Although hair transplant patients had experienced post-operative forehead swelling in previous years, nowadays we rarely observe forehead swelling and most of the times it appears due to non accurate observance of the post-operative instructions.
  • Minimal post-operative forehead swelling- We have established a Hair Transplantation Plan for each patient in order to ensure that new hair will fit ideally to the patient’s profile. One of our main priorities is to fully exploit the donor area and also preserve donor supply for possible future needs.

PREPARATION – ANAESTHESIA

FUE is a virtually painless procedure. It is performed through local anesthesia, which is firstly administered in the donor area and also – after the follicular units’ extraction- in the recipient area. In order to facilitate the follicular units’ extraction, the donor area hair has to be trimmed to about 1mm length (so as to enable the doctor to estimate the angulations of the follicular units).

FOLLICULAR UNIT'S HARVESTING

With a motorized surgical punch of 0.7mm-0.9mm diameter, the doctor extracts the follicular units, which are surrounded by their sebaceous glands, muscles, nerves and connective tissue. Follicular units usually consist of 1-4 hairs and they are harvested from the donor area one by one.

FOLLICULAR UNIT'S PRESERVATION

The extracted follicular units are kept in physiological saline solution until the time they will be reimplanted.

GRAFT CUTTING

The harvested follicular units are trimmed under DIGITAL HD VIDEO MICROSCOPE. The extra tissue and skin is trimmed from the hair and tissue which is essential for survival that is present surrounding the roots are carefully preserved. The magnified view and special graft cutting instruments helps to minimal wastage of precious grafts. the DIGITAL VIDEO MICROSCOPE in which image is enlarged about 25 times helps us to separate follicular units in single units so that they can be placed very close to give maximum density and without any pain/bleeding/scarring/punches/ ugly and big holes during the placement of grafts.

CARE OF THE DONOR AREA

Due to the fact that no linear incision is needed with the FUE technique, the donor sites receive a simple medical care with antibiotic ointment and are temporarily covered (they are left to heal by second intention in 1-2 weeks post op).

NO RECIPIENT SITES CREATION

Under magnification we do plantation of the newly harvested grafts with the help of specially designed planter which places the roots without touching the root during the procedure. This enables us to achieve maximum density, minimal damage to roots and natural and aesthetically better results as compared to slits /punches/drill etc. Specific standards should be followed, regarding their distribution, size & direction and further attention is needed in order not to disturb the elasticity and microcirculation of the recipient area and thus ensure the proper preconditions of growth and nourishment for the implanted follicular units. In order to mimic the natural hair growth and provide maximum density, the recipient sites should be as small as possible & closely situated.

FOLLICULAR UNIT'S PLACEMENT WITH PLANTERS

All the harvested grafts are planted by Dr Dhananjay Chavan under magnification himself no assistant doctor/technician/other team member do this crucial step. This make our result better and more natural than others although it is more time consuming The doctor starts placing the follicular units with great attention. During this process, the doctor observes all the basic principles of flawless placement:

  • He places the follicular units at the proper angle & direction, taking into consideration the growth conditions of the recipient area.
  • He aims at a natural & refined hairline by using single follicular units.
  • 1 hair follicular unit is placed in frontal hairline and 2-hair follicular units are placed exactly behind the single follicular units.

HAIRLINE DESIGN & CREATION

The nature of FUE technique facilitates the hairline’s creation. Age, facial characteristics, facial symmetry & style are parameters that are carefully assessed during the hairline design. Single follicular units are placed at the recipients sites of the hairline, in order to mimic natural hair growth. The hairline doesn’t follow any linear model but gives the sense of being asymmetrical and incidental.

Specific skills and aesthetic perception are therefore required by the doctor for the design and creation of the hairline, in order to be as suitable as possible to the patient΄s profile.

POSTOPERATIVE CARE

The nature of FUE technique facilitates the hairline’s creation. Age, facial characteristics, facial symmetry & style are parameters that are carefully assessed during the hairline design. Single follicular units are placed at the recipients sites of the hairline, in order to mimic natural hair growth. The hairline doesn’t follow any linear model but gives the sense of being asymmetrical and incidental.

With the end of the procedure, the doctor examines the donor and the recipient area and provides you with all the necessary postoperative instructions before you return home. The next day you should have your first hair wash at our clinic. The following days you can wash your hair at home according to the instructions.
