Micro FUE, or Follicular Unit Extraction, is a cutting-edge hair transplant technique that involves removing individual hair follicles from a donor area on the scalp and transplanting them to areas of hair loss. Unlike traditional hair transplant methods that use a strip of hair follicles, Micro FUE allows for a more natural-looking result with less scarring and a faster recovery time.
During the procedure, a small punch tool is used to extract the hair follicles one by one, typically with a diameter of 0.7mm or less. This means that the punch size used is only 0.6 to 0.8 mm in diameter, resulting in very small, virtually invisible scars in the donor area. Bleeding during surgery is also very minimal, and the donor area heals in less than 48 hours.
Micro FUE is suitable for both men and women who are experiencing hair loss or thinning hair. The procedure can be used to restore hair to areas of the scalp, including the hairline, crown, and temples. The success of a Micro FUE procedure depends on several factors, including the quality and quantity of the hair follicles being transplanted, the skill and experience of the surgeon performing the procedure, and the patient's overall health and medical history.
It is important to have a consultation with a qualified hair transplant surgeon to determine if Micro FUE is the right procedure for you and to discuss the potential risks and benefits of the procedure. With graft survival rates of up to 80-85%, Micro FUE offers very good aesthetic results and a faster recovery time than traditional hair transplant methods. So, if you're looking for a natural-looking solution to hair loss, Micro FUE may be the perfect choice for you.
