Hair Transplant Follicular Technique

As consumer’s appetite for surgical hair transplants procedures grow in the exploding cosmetic industry, the need for hair transplants information and education is important.

About Follicular hair transplants 

For years, cosmetic surgery was done by obtaining donor hair using linear incision. Today there is a buzz about follicular unit use in hair transplants. Follicular unit is a group of 1 to 3 hair that grow naturally together, including glands, muscle, nerves and blood vessels. Today, the use of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is greatly extended.  It is a new method of obtaining donor hair for transplantation where individual hair units are plucked from one area, the donor area, using only 1 mm circular incision size, and then inserted directly in the balding area. 

Follicular Unit Transplantation FUT still uses a final hair transplantation act of implanting single hair into the balding area, after it was plucked and dissected from a strip. Here the name is referring to the way the follicular grafts are obtained strip harvesting and dissection vs. direct extraction and implantation. Strip harvesting a strip of hair approximately 10 to 20 cm long is removed from the donor area (back of the head below the ears) and is then divided and cut into follicular units under a microscope.

FUE does not leave a linear scar but instead small incisions. Therefore, it is used for patients who want to wear their hair very short and those who have a very tight scalp. There is a shorter healing time since the incisions are so small. It is best used when a limited number of grafts are needed damage may occur due the large but small incisions to extract the hair follicles. Another problem may occur when epidermis and upper dermis may separate from the rest of the follicle during the pluck incision, called “capping.”  Another incision is needed for a new follicle.

FUE is less efficient in harvesting hair, since it is taken from several areas of the donor areas. In FUT, the strip is taken from the optimal section of the donor region so all the hair in this area can be removed and transplanted at once. In FUE, while hair is extracted, the skin between the follicular units is not removed. Therefore, the hair transplants surgeon must leave enough hair in the area to cover the remaining donor scalp. Consequently, there is considerably less total donor hair available. To compensate for the inability to harvest all the hair from the permanent zone, the surgeon may eventually be tempted to harvest hair from the upper and lower margins of the original donor area and risk the hair being of poor quality or being non-permanent. In FUE small hundreds or thousands of scars are left open to heal. This scarring distorts adjacent follicular units and makes subsequent sessions more difficult, this limits future donor supply.
