Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

What is an FUE hair transplant?

Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation (FUT) has been the leading method of hair transplantation since it was introduced in the 1950s. However, recent developments have made way for a new procedure – FUE or ‘Follicular Unit Extraction’ which is fast becoming an alternative option due to its advantages such as no linear donor scarring and increased number of grafts per session. Various techniques are being developed further to overcome some of this procedure’s limitations.

Principle of Follicular Unit Extraction

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a technique used for hair transplantation, which involves carefully separating and extracting individual follicles from their attachment to the dermis. To achieve this, small micro punches of 0.6-0.8mm are employed – resulting in minimal scarring that’s virtually undetectable!

The technique of hair extraction is limited by anatomy, as it is not possible to see the bulge from the outside. This can lead to a higher transection rate due to hairs diverging in different directions and slow process time per unit pulled out. However, with practice and experience, surgeons can improve their hand-eye coordination for faster execution while reducing transections at the same time.

Root Hair Clinic is one of the pioneers in FUE hair transplantation, offering this revolutionary technology as a preferred method for extracting and transplanting hair. Our highly experienced team of surgeons has undergone special training to perfect their technique and offer superior results to our patients. With Root Hair Clinic’s expertise, you can rest assured that your treatment will be conducted expertly and with utmost care. Contact Root Hair Clinic Korea today to find out more!

FUE Procedure

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a type of hair transplant procedure that allows for the restoration of natural-looking, healthy locks. Unlike other procedures, it requires no sutures or stitches; instead, local anesthesia and special micro punches are used to extract individual follicles from the back of your head before they’re reinserted in balding areas. With this method, you can look forward to long-lasting results!

Advantages of FUE Method

1. No Stitching is Required

The FUE hair transplant procedure requires no stitches or sutures; this reduces the risk of infection and post-operative complications. This also eliminates the need for any further follow-up visits to have sutures removed, thus saving valuable time. Additionally, there’s no linear donor scarring, and an increased number of grafts per session can be obtained.

2. Almost Invisible Scars

Because FUE transplant does not involve the use of stitches or sutures, there is minimal scarring. The tiny 0.6–0.8mm punches are almost invisible to the naked eye and do not leave any visible marks; this makes them a preferable choice for those who want to camouflage their hair transplantation surgery.

3. Faster Healing Period

The Korea FUE method also has a faster healing period; the small punches can heal quickly and without significant discomfort. There is no need to wait and stand by for several days before returning to your regular daily routines and activities as it is with traditional hair transplantation procedures.

4. Long-Lasting, Natural-Looking Results

FUE Hair Transplant Korea is a highly effective technique that provides natural-looking, long-lasting results. Individual follicles are extracted from the donor area – usually at the back of the head or near the temples – and transplanted to balding areas for a renewed youthful look.

5. High Density and Precision

FUE Hair Transplant Korea also ensures high precision and density, as individual follicles can be selected and transplanted with greater accuracy. This results in a more aesthetically pleasing outcome, as opposed to the traditional strip or FUT method which often leaves visible linear scars.

6. Less Pain after Surgery

Korea FUE Hair Transplant can be particularly beneficial for those with low pain tolerance. While there may be some mild discomfort during the procedure, most patients report little to no post-operative pain or inflammation. This is due to the precise and delicate manner in which individual follicles are extracted and reinserted.

7. Less Psychological Pressure

Unlike other hair transplant procedures, FUE does not require shaving of the head; this can be a great advantage for many people who don’t want to go through the process of having visible linear scars or bald patches on their heads. This way, patients can undergo the surgery with less psychological pressure and stress.

8. Higher Hair Success Rate

The FUE method of hair transplant also has a higher success rate with regard to follicular survival. Because individual follicles are removed and reinserted, there is less trauma to the hair roots; this increases their survival rate and ensures optimal results for patients.
