Follicular Unit Extraction(FUE) is an advanced technique for hair restoration ,where individual follicles are extracted from back of scalp, beard rarely from chest and implanted in to the bald areas on frontal scalp to create a new hair line. Few hair may fall after implantation, but the hair root along with the hair germ remains at the site of implant, which regrows the hair after few months. Since hair growth is slow i.e. 1-1.5cm/month, It takes atleast 5-6 months to notice a significant hair growth. We also make sure that the hairline created gives a natural look. The site where the follicular grafts are extracted will be eventually covered by regrowth of existing hair. No sutures are used during any stage of surgery, hence it doesn’t carry any risk of scar formation.
